I kinda like the exotic feeling of foreign languages, so I often don't want dubbed versions. I read fairly quickly so it's not a problem for me to have subtitles.
Ah, 11:48 PM. I'm afraid it's time for me to bid goodnight.
Ah, three quite popular series aimed at your demographic. I'll just copy + paste right out of my Interests section:
- ARIA the series
- The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
- Kanon (2006)
- Lucky Star
- 5cm per second
They're all targeted towards a slightly older demographic, so they usually don't get airtime on TV outside of Japan. I usually watch subtitled versions online.
Most gender benders I know of are really male, since they're more receptive to "doing it for the laughs." Girls usually just correct people who get it wrong, though not to say that there aren't any female gender benders either. :P
On a random note, do you watch any anime at all?
