I knew most of this. Also, I like seafoam. Whenever I use an albino color scheme, I just feel compelled to use seafoam for some reason. For shoujo, I like Kamisama Kiss (the romance anime with the yokai), it's funny for the most part. I don't really watch much shoujo either. Most are pretty boring. But Kamisama Kiss actually has, ya know, a plot. And it doesn't revolve around the relationship, there are other important events in the anime too, it's not just romance. And then you have animes like Anime Twilight Vampire Knight. Blech. VK's drama is overwhelming, and despite all the twists and turns, it has no plot. I couldn't get through a season. Love triangles are so dumb and cliche. I feel like a lot of authors resort to them but with VK, it's the entire point.
Also, carpe diem.
