For most shows, I think the target audience for a lot of them are in high school. Plus it's probably one of the easier settings to base a story on since high school is basically a social ground. Wish more shows would take place in college, though.

Well let's face it, Anime is generally aimed at a target audience, and it tends to expand on it. Look at it this way.
High school is great for audience targeting.

Children: Children enjoy high school stories because they are excited to see into the teenager life and try to assume that the high school life is just like what they see in their favorite animes. Something that they think they can look forward to.

Teenagers: Teenagers love watching high school animes, because they look at it through the eyes that their life could be like that. They could be in the position of getting the hot girl that everybody likes.Watching high school animes are sort of like escaping into a life that they could have as a teen.

Adults: Many adults like High school stories as well because it can make them think of experiences they have had that relate to what is happening in the anime, or sometimes they watch it and imagine what their high school life could have been like under specific anime based situations.

Thus in the end, High school stories are a great audience winner in animes. It sparks the imagination of people of all ages as to what life might be like in reality, even though it is fictional.

Look at the persons nick, I smell a troll :P


Calm down, the way people throw around the word "Troll" on this website you would think that any person that says anything even slightly strange or incoherent must automatically be a troll. A real Troll is somebody who purposely says something out right horrible for the strict purpose of making many people angry to attack him, thus receiving the pleasure of making many people angry at once.

This person is asking a pretty legitimate question about why school life is such a popular subject even though the audience is generally older and prefers more mature subjects, yet still school life is preferred as a popular anime genre.

Because it's in the genre of "slice of life"... which depicts the life of ordinary people and the problem ppl might have.. As in majority-wise ordinary ppl go to school (right?)
