oh... child or adult, i think the concept of anime is still the same.. there isnt any effect at all, i think. i maybe biased because i started when i was young until now(20 yrs old--am i an adult already? oficially?).. but to make a point, my parents think its... childish and a waste of time. i was watching law of ueki on our tv and my parents always comment sarcastically how ueki never dies no matter how many times he's beaten. but u knw what... they watched... and stayed no matter how they criticized. it was.. weird..

and yuh, i dnt know if its anime or just cartoon, but either way, my dad is a big fan of samurai jack! ^_^

Well I guess adults think of anime as childish crap... I'm only 13, but my mom thinks that I should quit watching anime... She said that I'm too old to be watching "dumb cartoons" and that I should watch Tv programs that make SENSE!!!!! So I guess that in a not-too-distant future, I'll stop watching anime..

well, I probably watched a lot of animes and i think some are childish, while some are pretty mature and some just don't make sense... so my opinion is different for every anime. Besides it is a medium of "art" and holds a lot of meaning so it's not worthless..

Anime will appeal to me if it has none of the shit we often see in anime.

It depends on which series you watch. My mom kept riding my butt about me watching anime while I was growing up too. But apparantly it started to click with her recently that they actually do have some strong storylines and are not a childish as she thought they were.

I've yet to see any Japanese adults tell their kids or friends that watching anime is childish lol.

an adult and a teen/child have the same perspective... it really appeals to everyone on what they like in an anime by judging it in their own opinion.

I think all of this arises from the typical American assumption that animation = for little kids only. I first saw anime when I was 13. I've liked it since then, and I'm 25. I've grown out of certain anime, but I don't think I'll ever grow out of all anime as a whole until I'm much, much older. Like maybe when I'm 60.

i'm an adult and i love anime. i didn't really watch anime when i was younger b/c i thought it was childish. u know how u want to grow up fast when ur a kid? i was like that.

now that i am a grown-up, i find myself watching a lot of anime. i work hard to have a career, but i sometimes hate being all serious and having a lot of responsibility. watching anime allows me to be a kid again.

I guess as you get older your tastes change, but I doubt I will grow out of anime anytime soon even though I am 22 and my parents tell me it is childish lol...I enjoy watching it and I don't care what they think haha...it helps destress from work ,college and all that fun adult stuff...though I tend to like older animes more...

Being a kid in heart is really awesome It takes all the stress away from work... well, homework for me anyways >.>


"homework"... i haven't heard that word in so long... it seems like everyone on CR is so young - it must be nice. i feel like an old bat, even though i'm only in my twenties!
