    Okay, let's see if I did this right.

    I go by Mode

    My hobbies are music, reading (no points for guessing what), and video games.

    I'm also currently writing a practice story to improve myself before honestly attempting to write the story I've had in mind for years.

    My favorite genres would be shounen and isekai, particularly the ones with a laid back feeling to them and/or a nice protagonist. I think moral ambiguity can be interesting, but series where the protagonist starts straight up slaughtering other people when it isn't needed tend to lose my interest (I thought Overlord was great for the first couple of volumes), as does excessively graphic blood and gore or rape (Looking at you Goblin Slayer).

    Harem endings are also a plus as long as it isn't too ridiculous (in a "Why would anyone want anything to do with him?" way, not a "Wait, he has how many wives?" way)

    So given that, Death March has been my favorite read so far by a decent margin. I may or may not have a bad habit of rereading the whole thing when I'm waiting for updates. Isekai Nonbiri is another one that's kind of slow and not super exciting, but has a laid back guy enjoying his life in a way that's vicariously peaceful.

    And I guess that's it for me.

    Please call me Moonlit, would prefer not to be called Shadow, only have that in my name out of habit.
    I'm a poor little chuuni who likes video games, music, writing, drawing, visual novels, and anime, and I've been going into light novels and manga more recently. I have a habit of not watching popular anime, though.

    Yuri/Shoujo ai, fantasy, adventure are about the core three genres/tags I love. I'll read almost anything, based on boredom levels, but whether or not I like it is going to depend on the specifics. The lack of canon yuri in anime and vn's (subtext isn't a tag, which makes it hard to find and it is also sometimes really annoying) is a decent part of what drove me to manga and ln's.

    The above should be enough for recommending me stuff, since I can be incredibly picky when I'm in the mood for it and there's not much that'll stop that.
    I haven't read much, my memory is terrible, and I'm shit at choosing favorites, so I won't be able to use light novels as my favorites. ef - a fairy tale of the two is one of my favorite nakiges of all time, a genre I appreciate greatly partially because of its prevalence in plot based vn's.
    Master Of The Wind, a superhero rpgmaker game you probably haven't heard of, impacted me the most out of about anything I can recall.
    I know I gave nothing that matched my favorite tags/genres, thats because I'm shit at finding stuff. Hopefully I can get some help with that, as in, you find it for me, because I don't think I'll be able to figure out how.

    Is this too long? Probably, I'm ramble-y and like to talk to myself. I've had a few very significant experiences with forums before, so maybe this will be one of them. Or maybe I'll disappear in a week. Wonder if anyone will recognize me?

    Maybe I'll finally find the perfect story that will be uncannily similar to the one I'm trying to write.

    Oh, literally the three tags I listed, but with a few extra distinctions from the generic japanese isekai fantasy's that I realized I really disliked, and then the rest relatively generic with themes and stuff lifted from nakige's. Those distinctions are the whole guilds system that seems rather prevalent, unimportant monsters. I want to have monsters like those from Titan Souls, and probably also Shadow of the Colossus which inspired it although I don't really know much about SotC, monsters that visually stunning and feel significant with a mystical beast kind of feel. I want a plot that follows the adventure, rather than a forced adventure that is a pure result of the plot telling the characters to do this and go there. And of course, I want my own original, special snowflake magic system. And no isekai, because I don't see that fitting in the story. No grudge against it as a genre or trope though.

    Hopefully all this brings something very specific, or multiple things, that sound very similar to mind that hopefully I'd love.

    Sorry, I don't really read yuri/shoujo ai. I hope you find someone who can help you, though.

    Usually I use Wari as my online name so I'll just go with that here. My hobby is redrawing/typesetting doujins, but I'm not really active at it anymore (damn you employment).
    I'm mainly an anime watcher and a manga reader, but I recently picked up a couple of LNs to read for the first time due to them being related anime I've watched. I'm entirely new to LNs so I have no favorite novels.
    While I generally like Yuri/GL, I usually don't pick what to read/watch based on its genre that much, so I'm okay with anything if anyone wants to suggest. (Although, if my experience with anime has taught me anything, it's that I rarely enjoy horror / robot genre. Can still try though.)
