    Normally I would introduce my self with a hey all, I'm new here etc etc (no Trump isn't the issue, its all the unicorns eating our damn pickles, that's whats messing our country up) but figured this would be better.

    So favorite books in no particular order

    The Dragon Bone Chair, Stone of Farewell and To Green Angel Tower by Tad Williams

    Guardians of the Flame by Joel Rosenberg

    The Elric saga by Micheal Moorcock (tragic last name, but great (and somewhat weird) books)

    Sten (and the rest of the series) by Alan Cole and Chris Bunch

    The Dragonlance chronicles by Weis and Hickman

    Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein

    and many many more.

    The movie starship troopers completely misses the point of the book. But we'll add favorite anime, manga etc to the list as well

    So for anime

    Akira

    Darker than black

    Black lagoon

    Samurai Champloo

    Samurai 7

    Ghost in the Shell

    Bubble Gum Crisis

    Record of Lodoss war

    MD Geist

    Desert Punk

    Tri Gun

    nausicaa of the valley of the wind

    just about everything from Hayao Miyazaki

    that's it for now I'll be here all day if I try to remember everything

    For books, R.A. Salvatore...essentially anything from the Drizzt series. I enjoy Tom Clancy as well. Can't name a favorite, though.

    Anime......there just isn't time enough here to list all of my favorite anime. Joanna and I started watching Bleach recently, that's awesome. Absolute Duo is good. Date A Live is good. Man, the list is literally miles long...

    Welcome to the site, Khal, glad you could join us :D
