hell, NO! never too old for anime...you ever going to be too old for bugs bunny? same logic...althou watching ecchi for a 40+ male is just deprived...something wrong there...but other genres like romance, thriller, suspense, slice of life...is classic, for all ages...
so everyone watch anime and enjoy! *\/^_^\/*

It's not a matter of 'too old' or 'too ..something'. It's more a matter of taste and being able to make some critical judgments.



Many a parent and even some teacher watch cartoons, anime and/or other forms of youthful entertainment... usually because they, themselves, grew up with it.

That's a big difference between them and the generations before them: before their time, cartoons and/or comics weren't mainstream. That said, most of cartoony and/or anime stuff still is aimed at the kiddy demographic though.


I'm way past 30 and still like to watch anime or cartoons regularly, however,...









... once over 20, you usually start to realise that about 90 per cent of anime (and most Western/other cartoons) are actually pretty darn bad.






Most of it (DBZ comes to mind, as do many of the most popular anime productions) is brainless drivel, very often produced as toy commercials and not much more.

In short, that leaves precious few 'good' titles left, anime or otherwise. The ones with a decent plot, original artwork and/or intelligent scenario (contrasted sharply to the dozens of cliché'd mahou shoujo schoolgirl magical supernatural cr*p) are then few and far between. Alas.

It's a unique form of entertainment that's otherwise foreign to our culture. I'm pretty sure people of all ages still watch it home, in Japan... but it doesn't quite fit in that well on western shores. It's still a cartoon, like it or not.

Personally, I've watched anime that I was probably too old to even consider... like yesterday, I watched Pretty Cure. Go figure.

No, I think that it's hard to be too old to watch anime. Anime generally covers a wider market group then do "cartoons" in the US. Are anime like Ghost in the Shell more childish than American sitcoms? I do think that there is a point where one should stop being obsessed with anime, but that applies to almost every diversion.

I don't think it's an age issue. Anime is just like videogames. Some like it some don't.

Anime has no age limit. It is simply another genre of entertainment. You'll never get to old to watch anime, the same way you'll never get to old to watch movies, watch tv shows or listen to music.....if those things dont have age limits why should anime.
