if you're 30 y.o. and watching ichigo mashimaro and they called you childish, im afraid yes you are. but then there's nothing to worry about, you are not what you watch and in my opinion most drama storyline that available out-there is not much different then anime nowadays. DO NOT SUCCUMB to their influences, that what makes you weak. show them that anime can be mature

show them hentai made them watch berserk, hellsing, monster and all that M to A-rated anime and let them decide whose the childish one


i totally agree with you...ppl who think watching anime is childish should die!!!!! if u share my opinion, then BUDDY ME!!!!!!

NEVER!!!! sheesh would a child be allowed to watch Samurai X w/c has such a complicated plot and all those bloody scenes too? How can it be childish? where in fact you can learn from it.. we can read faster.. ahem subtitles..LOL! and because of it I learned some science( you know when they explain some stuff like the ones in gundam, or etc.. well I know you guys know!) and SPORTS! because of slam dunk and Prince of tennis I learned how the games are played! see!! theres a whole lot more of things you can learn! Its so not like DORA or Barney! duh! Oh and yeah! actually because of it my imagination is so unexplainable now.. hahaha... I guess I fussed too much about this.. well I'm just in the mood!!

yes.. i would call it childish, if ur watching like those pokemon, card capture sakura, etc and any other kiddy anime.. lol. xD

depends on which one. pokemon is more all ages, but i wouldn't recommend Elfen Lied to little kids. plus in Japan, i saw tons of older individuals reading manga and watching anime.

In Japan people up to their 40's read manga (seinen manga). The only difference between anime/manga and other shows is that it's animated.

Who gets to decide what's mature and immature? Why do those labels even exist? Plenty of people who would otherwise be called "mature" do watch anime. The fact is that these words don't have any objective meaning, so you should ignore them. They're just rhetoric.

So what if another person calls it childish? If you like it, then watch it. If you like it when you're 60, keep watching it.

Let them have their opinions - that's all they are.

if they say its childish its either A) They never watched a decent anime before and/or B ) they watched american cartoons before anime ( i swear those cartoon would rot your brain *shudder*) and/or C) They watched dubbed versions ( those "believe in the heart of the cards" line has got to go -_-)

Sheesh......people who think that anime is childish probably has never seen one before or they see childish anime like Pokemon(no offence to pokemon lovers).Anime is kinda like dramas or any other tv shows that people watch,the difference being that anime is animated.Becoz it's animated,people think it's childish but it's not.Violent shows like elfen lied and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is definitely not childish due to the horror and gore and blood.I can't imagine that being childish.I think the people who said anime is childish should juz shut up and try watching some nice anime,they might like it and change their mind.

Anime is not childish its rather mature
because some pepople are tired watching real people so darn ugly
i guess watching real people waste my time like reality shows or talk shows
unlike anime it has good storyline promising perfect traits that humans does not have

anime is not childish because it has a great story line that will never happen in reality and they only say its childish because of the drawings they dont understand how special the anime is!but you can find other anime that has a related story through life like school days and sometimes you can learn other stuff that you cant learn in reality!
