"google 'hentai', see what comes up, and then talk to me about anime being for kids."

or i'd just start talking about some really violent animes.

The problem is that here, in the US, very few animes have made it to TV. The ones that do are usually pokemon or shows of that ilk that appeal most to children. So the term anime has been stereotyped to mean a show for kids.

Saying you watch anime is like saying you watch TV. There are tons of TV shows that appeal to most every audience. Anime is the same. There are so many genera of anime that there is something to appeal to just about everyone.

I'm 23. When I was a kid I watched shows like DBZ and such. That got me started. Then I found that I could watch anime online and started to realize the enormous amount of diversity among anime and realized why it is so popular. I still watch shows like Naruto and Bleach, likely because I just want to see them through, but my tastes have changed. I don't think you have to show someone hentai and say "there, that's not for kids, is it?". Take something like Ergo Proxy, Pale Cocoon, Time Of Eve, ect. These are just a few examples of animes that made me think far more than any show on TV here. And you will find as you watch more that so many animes make such great use of imagery, metaphors, character development and relatability, ect. that it's hard not to watch.

If worse comes to worse you can do what I'm about to. My friend and I have made an agreement. If I eat some rice crispy treats wrapped in bacon he will watch an entire anime series. We both have our doubts that either are good, but we both swear they are. I guess I'll find out (no matter how old you get you never completely grow up :lol:) ...

I know adults who watch cartoons.
My old teachers all watched cartoons.

So on and so forth. Your interest in any type or form of entertainment has absolutely NOTHING to do with anyone and should be non of their concern.

Another note, just because something is drawn doesn't automatically make it for kids. Family guy, the Simpson, robot chicken, american dad..ect.

Just like a lot of anime are for adults.


So basically if anyone said that to me. I'd tell them to shut it and to go back to what ever lame hollywood shit they were watching and continue to be ignorant and stupid.


What he said. Anime isn't just for kids and watching it doesn't mean you are or act like one. Anime is just like any other television show in entertainment in that some were meant for children, for adults, both, or whatever. If anime was just for kids, there wouldn't be hentai, or shows like Elfen Lied, Black Lagoon, Higurashi, Berserk, Mnemosyne, Death Note and others that portray some sort of violence and death most people wouldn't want their kids to watch.

My opinion is that anime is an art form that can express just as much as live television and more with elements that you can't make happen in real life. You can get into the story and enjoy it just as much as you can with movies and plays and at the same time, appreciate the animation art style and all the emotions, expressions, action scenes, sequences, and all that that a studio works hard to create for you. Hell, anime got better shows to watch than a majority of bullshit they air here in the U.S., for me particularly reality shows... there's just too many of them... and they're all stupid if you ask me.
