My taste for anime is pretty limited too. I don't care if it's popular or not, I don't give a soykaf about being hip because I like some obscure show. I like Lain but I like some popular shows too. Is One Punch Man popular? I really love that soykaf. Akira and Ghost in the Shell are popular as hell, to the point that many people that don't like anime have seen them. I don't disavow those movies because they're popular. No, I think they're badass, some of my favorites.
I do really like cyberpunk, but I like some fantasy and / or historical stuff. Basilisk is pretty cool, I just watched it for the first time recently.
I feel like a nerd, in America there's subculture that things anime is cool and sublime, really they're just foreign cartoons, I'm ashamed that I spend so much time watching this soykaf.
