Hi guys just need your thoughts on this topic, Is there an age where you should stop watching Anime? I recently just turned 15 and was wondering that. I still have some years to go but i was wondering about your thoughts on this??

No. As long as you're still enjoying it, keep watching it. Your tastes in what you enjoy may change over time but that's going to be the case with all media. When you're older, you'll probably even look back at some of the stuff you liked and you'll be embarrassed by it. That's just how it goes. But don't let anyone tell you that there's an age cut off to a hobby you otherwise enjoy.

A LOT of the forum regulars around here are double your age, some far more than even that lol.

Anime will always have an active interest to me. It's such a broad art that whilst I watch less school kid antics anime these days (or at least try to... Theres far too much of it) at the end of the day there's always going to be a lure to drawn away by visuals and narrative that simply can't be quite replicated the same way in other media like movies or live action TV.

Perhaps your worried about stigma that to be an anime fan never mind Otaku brings? Don't worry about it and enjoy, everyone has an inner "geek," we should embrace and not concern ourselves as being one day we should be too old to enjoy. What age should people stop playing video games?

I'll stop watching when I'm dead.

Same for video games.

You can't let other people tell you what to be interested in.

Easy answer is, If you still enjoy it, then no.

I would say everyone is different you might take a break if college and other career options get busy but you can always come back. Anime will always be here

There isn't an age limit for watching anime. You just watch until you get bored of it.

Most shows are aimed at kids. Some are not. It is true that there are a lot of otaku who watch kids' shows and then try to insist that it isn't for kids. It makes them look weird IMO.

It is also true (and probably responsible for the preceding) that for some people, they perceive a stigma around watching kids' shows. Those people are generally either still teenagers or young unmarried adults, or not living the "standard" adult family life, as anyone with children will tell you how for many years they mostly get to watch only kids' shows because their kids are around.

Media may be targeted at children but if it is made well, will still contain enough depth to be interesting to adults so that the parents aren't bored out of their skulls.

Watching anime is only weird if you overdo it, or if you act otherwise weird about what should be a normal cartoon.

Stop watching anime when you stop being interested in anime.
