How can someone has some many "favourites". If it's so many, then it can't be called favourites anymore?

It's quite simple, lvuer. I (claim) to like all these titles on equal terms. Not that I think they're equal in terms of plot, animation, music etc. but I just like them all equally.

Also, I can have a lot of so-called "favorites" because these represent only a small fraction of the shows I've actually watched, or so I claim :evil:

I thought this much should be obvious?

Besides, the original post stated no limits. It said what ARE your current favorite anime/manga series. Not to state just a set number of titles from your favorites. I hope I've made myself clear, but if not, I'd be willing to explain further much as it might derail the thread completely (which I don't really care about)
How do you make your games? I see. Thank you for the prompt replies, but it is my considered opinion that you're doing it wrong inefficiently because I am a perfushenal professional. Do it my way this way and we can all ascend VN Nirvana together while allowing me to stroke my ego you will improve much faster. Also, please don't forget to thank me for this constructive critique or I will cry and bore you to death respond appropriately with a tl;dr rant discourse of epic adequately lengthy proportions. - Sarcasm Veiled in Euphemism: Secrets of Forum Civility by lordcloudx (Coming soon to an online ebook near you.)

If we're talking "current" then I was quite happy with Maria+Holic (just concluded), Clannad After Story (just concluded) and so far have been quite taken with K-On (just broadcast Ep 02).
Working on something... might even be something good :D

May I ask why do you think it's frustrating?
And, I have to ask, what's TRC? Tsubasa?

Yup. The full name is Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE. I have no idea why CLAMP felt it necessary to capitalize random letters, but apparently it matters to them.

Because lately the panels seem too empty, the chapters seem to end without much happening and the pacing is awfully slow when you read one chapter per week Dx;
That is frustrating for me.

It seems japanese peoples like to capitalize random letters and use strange symbols in foreing names. At least, most of japanese bands I know use things like this (DI3SIRAE, xTriPx, NoGoD, GPKism, and so on).

Macross Frontier. Just...Macross Frontier. (Not least because its best character probably has the biggest breasts you'll ever see in a non-hentai anime...) The number of times they pull off awesome fakeouts and explosive "what the hell?"s doesn't hurt.

Sailor Moon, despite being -generally- mediocre, also gets an honorable mention for the number of little things they really do right. (Kunzite, start to finish, makes an awesome villain...and of course, probably the best-written relationship of any mix of genders in anime, Haruka and Michiru.)

Yes, Sailormoon. I shame myself for not remembering it. Without Sailormoon animation, there won't be my current drawing style (heck, perhaps right now I won't be drawing at all)
