You are a real anime fan because you've watched a lot.

Casual anime fans only watch what's popular and then they get recommendations from people they're friends with irl.

I don't respect almost all of the anime you've seen though.

Imo I'm beyond being an anime fan at this point, since there's so much of it that I hate. I'm a mecha fan.

It's funny, as a kid/teenager I always thought mecha was lame and for babies. I equated it with Power Rangers (which is pretty much live action mecha).

Now I've got the opposite viewpoint.

Once you look past how silly the concept of giant robots is and actually watch it you see it's the most mature kind of anime with the most developed characters. I really enjoy the themes of war and politics in mecha anime as well.

I can't watch any comedic, romantic, about "fighting" (battle shounen). If people aren't dying or suffering it's going to bore me. Mecha ticks all my boxes. And most of it is old which is also a plus for me because I like hand drawn (and especially hand colored) anime a lot.

I watch a bit of everything. Got so many series I enjoyed one episode of and bookmarked and need to go back and finish. Got a huge backlog, haven't watched anything lately other than Vinland Saga.

That was the most popular thing when I was in high school but I had no interest in it. I always hated CGI even as a kid.

Evangelion is mecha btw so you have. And Gunbuster is if you ever get around to that. It's only 6 episodes so worth watching. A lot of the themes of Gunbuster were copied and pasted into Evangelion. In fact, it's pretty much Evangelion if Shinji was a girl.
