You got: You'd probably be in to western anime!

You're in the mood for an old-fashioned showdown at the O.K. Corral. Even in (or preferably in) outer space. Start with Cowboy Bebop, the quintessential western complete with a super-intelligent Corgi! Or follow the adventures of world's greatest gunslinger in Trigun. Need even more angsty revenge in your western? Try Gun X Sword.

You got: You'd probably be in to anime with magical girls!

You wish you were fighting evil moonlight, and winning love by daylight. Preferably with a group of girls in short skirts. If you can find it Sailor Moon is the best place to start or just wait until the remake online later this year. In the meantime, marathoning My-HiME or Cutie Honey are excellent alternatives.

You got: You'd probably be in to samurai anime!

If you're going to watch anime, it better feature some questionable Japanese history. Ninja Scroll is a film set in feudal Japan and comes with all the accompanying mythological demons. Need something a little longer than a couple of hours? Samurai 7 has free episodes streaming online or check out Samurai Champloo if you have Hulu.

You got: You'd probably be in to hentai.

Tentacle monsters, eh? For occult sexy times give the La Blue Girl or Bible Black series a whirl. Prefer your alone time a little more mundane? Mezzo Forte might be up your alley.

You got: You'd probably like anime featuring mechs!

When you think Japan, you think robots. Whether or not they are GIANT robots is optional. For the latter, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing or the trippy Neon Genesis Evangelion are the way to go. Prefer your mechs more man-sized? Ronin Warriors is on YouTube and Full Metal Alchemist is always streaming on Netflix.

You got: You'd probably like romantic comedy anime!

Mistaken identities, comedy of errors, and angsty romance is what you crave. Need some light incest while waiting for Game of Thrones? Try Marmalade Boy. Watch Ouran High School Host Club or Chobits online for free. Or, if you've got Netflix, give Ah! My Goddess a whirl.
