I like Shojo the most but don't get much time to watch any anime. I didn't know Hamtaro was under Komodo anime! Thanks for telling me and yesI can say I like that type too. I watched Mecha too some time ago, but I don't like it much. As for your discussion for Hentai: I did watch some of that and have mixe feelings about it. However some of them are really done well with a good story line (that is very important for me - obviously apart from the animation)

Well, for me, I will say I read a variety of most of the above anime genres, except probably Bishonen, Sentai, Expertise & Hentai. To me, the thing that matter more is the storyline and character design of the anime series. It may belong to an anime genre I seldom read, but if it really catches my attention, I will watch it. However, I guess the anime genres I watch most often are shojo and reverse harem. Quite a number of the animes and mangas I like fall into these 2 categories.
