I'm 26 and my husband is 43, we both watch anime, read manga and enjoy cosplay together. The thing is, there's always something for someone when it comes to anime. The genres within anime and manga are already so vast, you could continue well into your later years and still find something that peaks your interest.

Yes, but when you reach that age you won't need to do anything about it.

as long as you like it, you should watch it. nobody should be forced to stop if they still want to continue watching, you know? do what makes you happy.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

Not read the thread, but here is my answer. When you die. Otherwise if you enjoy it then keep watching it.


Edit: Sorry image seemed to fit nicely then posted it and it was a little bit bigger than I expected.

people think anything that is cartoon looking is childish don't listen to them. Animation is art once you get older the shonen anime probably wont appeal to you anymore so u can go to more mature anime like monster.

[Insert Childish Things quote from C. S. Lewis here]



I suppose this goes to the heart of the question. But there's a crucial difference between naturally growing out of something or the putting away of childish things and falsely trying to assume what constitutes an "adult". And a lot of people make that mistake. We all grow up with this idea that being adults means doing certain things like jobs and not doing other things like playing. But is it true? Being a mature adult is more about attitude than about what you do. Being responsible, considerate and things like that. And also knowing that play and fun is an important part of life for everyone, adults too, no matter the age, and part of being an adult is getting the balance between work and play right. I personally discovered anime as an adult and see no problem in that. I like what what I like and have no intention of not enjoying the things I like because of what others may think.

Best practice seems to be to resize images to be no more than 640 pixels wide.

Although if it does still appeal to you, I see no problem watching it.

So technology spills out of you at random?

It depends on what device you are using to post to the forums with. Assuming you are using a Windows PC, the easiest way is to right click on the image file, select "Edit" (which should open it in Paint), and in Paint select "Resize", select "Pixels" and change the horizontal to 640, click "OK", and the save the image (or use "Save as" to save it under a different name if you don't want to overwrite the original image).

What's the average human life expectancy? Add about 100 years. Anime is just a visual style, movies can come in any visual style, there is nothing negative about anime that would not also be true about movies or tv or anything else.

"An age at which you should stop watching anime."

Well... I suppose when you lose the ability to see to the point where even glasses cannot compensate, you'll have to... should you stop, no, but you won't really have a choice at that point. Anime is another method of presenting a story, as simple as that.
