I think word-of-mouth plays a decent role in helping me pick out anime. I mean, a few months ago I decided to check out Hunter X Hunter primarily because FutureFrog has often spoken very highly of it. Now I'm 60 episodes in and loving every minute!

I discover anime in a lot of different ways. On here, obviously; checking http://countdown.mandragon.... for the latest anime showing in Japan; friends recommending something; the occasional wikipedia trawl; anime coming out for a manga I read, or plan to read and quite often by just finding out the source of GIF's which I think look interesting.

I just pick up the latest stuff coming out each season. Then sometimes if one I didn't pick up is getting talked about a lot, I'll give it a shot. Though if it has fan service in any way, I'm all over it anyways.

I learn of New Anime from Amazon, of all places.

I suggest you go to myanimelist. Got some of the biggest list of animes. You can even search by genres and a lot of users do reviews.

Really? I'm a total newbie to the genre. I'll have to check it out thanks!
