Enthusiastically. :)

Hiccoughs are terrible. I'm glad I haven't had them in a long time.

The person after me lives in a small city with moderate temperatures year round.

Neither. Born, raised and living in a city with a population over 600,000 and temperatures between freezing cold and hot as hell.

The person after me is an Agatha Christie fan.
Please correct my mistakes. I'd really appreciate it ❤

No, I don't really love her novels, though I usually love crime novels...

The person after me is watching a manga to please someone they appreciate, because mangas aren't usually their kind of program.

I don't consciously watch but my children enjoy watching animes so I often spend time watching it with them.

The person under me wishes to have the time-machine.

"Manga" is a term for graphic novels. When a manga is adapted into a movie, it is often called "anime". You might also use that term for a television adaptation or you might just call it a "a tv show based on a manga".

"Anime" is generally uncountable in English. If you choose to pluralise it, you can't then refer back to it in the next clause with a singular pronoun.

It sounds awkward to use "watch" without an explicit object. I would say "I don't consciously watch anime, but my children enjoy it..."

I don't want that kind of responsibility.

The person after me still lives in the town or city where they were born.

No, just for fun.

The person after me needs a new mattress that isn't so compacted.
