have nothing wrong with it...my uncle watches anime and he's well in his 40's maybe 50's! I idolized him when I was little because he'd be the only one who'd watch anime with me!

There's already a thread like this. And also it shouldn't matter how old you are when you watch anime. If an old dying man wants to watch Samurai X, let him!

I think it's a bit weird if a 60 year old man likes watching animes like Love Hina, Fruits Basket, or Pokemon. But I can see him watching Gundam series, Akira, GTO, etc. I remember some guy who seemed to be in his 40s coming to the anime showings at our school. He'd make sex jokes and enjoy the younger ones. Nothing wrong with it but it did seem a bit weird to me. Man in his 40s talking making perverted jokes and buddy buddy with a bunch of people ages 17-22 seems a bit odd in my opinion. It's like someone's dad coming to hang out with their friends. But I'm not otaku and I'm a bit judgmental of them so I'm biased.

Did you see pedobear?







But seriously, there is nothing wrong with older people watching anime. Most of the anime that I watch is for adult audiences anyway, so I don't feel there is the problem. (and I do get along with people my own age, and people in their early 20s) You all will be my age someday, will you still be watching anime? As long as they keep on making good series, I will keep on watching them.

lol. I don't know pedobear but he's the coolest pedophile / bear I've seen.

I don't find anything really wrong. I know plenty of adults, even up to their 60s watching Anime. Especially in Japan since it's a culturally common there. I guess it just seems a bit odd because it's a rare thing in the States still. And it's only recent generations of young adults that have experienced games, internet, animations, etc. So, I'm expecting each generation of older viewers to increase every year. Very rare to find people older than 40 or 50, however, since they haven't grown up on it since it hadn't really been noticed outside Asia.
You're still not too old where you can get by. Maybe it is just me *no idea* but I just find it a little eye-catching when I see someone 50ish with someone as young as 18 at her college club meeting. I guess it depends on the situation and how one would behave. I guess I found one conservative side of me. lol. If I found out my father watched Anime, I'd probably make him stop.
