Where's the LEOR plug? Also, no Petrus?My advice would be to learn CFOP, Roux and ZZ and get sub 40 with all of them (start with cfop as it will make the other 2 easier) and then choose which one you like best. They all have different pros and cons and you will gain a better understanding of the cube by learning all of them and the ones you don’t use will still be fun to solve with occasionally.
if you want to learn more there is a thread devoted to choosing a method but it is quite old and some of the info is outdated.
I think the if you like x do y method things don't really work, you just have to see what works for you or appeals.If you say that... then if you want to have an easier transition from LBL with a researched method, you should pick CFOP because there are many resources on how to get faster.
If you want to be fast but also "unique" you should pick Roux, not many people use it, it is pretty easy, there are only 40ish algs and it is a pretty intuitive method.
If you want a method with advanced tricks but not well researched, you should pick ZZ, but you will have to figure how to get faster yourself as there are not as many resources to get faster than CFOP.
