Music: Lots of J-pop, C-pop, J-rock, some indie.

Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Tamora Pierce, Jim Butcher, Diane Duane, Diana Wynne Jones, Charles Dickens, Sir Walter Scott, Alexandre Dumas pere, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, Lewis Carroll, J.R.R. Tolkien. Not necessarily in that order.
Anime/Manga: D.Gray-Man, Dragon Knights, Mahou Sensei Negima, Bloody Monday, Deadman Wonderland, Higurashi no Naku koro Ni, Umineko no Naku koro ni. There's probably more that I can't remember right now.

And that's all, folks.
