I'm extremely thankful when I come across older anime fans because sometimes feel like I'm the only one out there. All in all, enjoy your hobby and don't feel ashamed about being an older anime fan. Remember that in 10 - 15 years from now those youngsters will be in our shoes.

You know the special night that the border opened up in Samurai Champloo? I was there.

It's a hollow effing victory.

My bones are achier than your bones. (what? it's a word)


Both of my thumbs have been aching like crazy the past couple of weeks. Scary. It might be from using the laptop and fooling around with my new tablet (yaaay! got one at last); I hope that's all it is. Then there's the matter of doing a ton of dishes after my water heater went out and cleaning got backed up....



Right....your thumbs hurt from too much playing with something...but I'd bet it sure as hell wasn't your new "tablet".
I'm reminded of the "Pervy Sage" from Naruto. lol

The pervy old man is an anime staple right back to Master Turtle from the original Dragonball and there were a few other notable ones. The wizard from Wicked City comes to mind.

I always get the latter confused. Effing works for me. heck the actual swear doesn't bother me. but since I wear a white coat on the job I have to talk all prissy like.

Twiddling my thumbs too much.

Yep, Jiraiya and Tsunade share space as my alter-ego.

I find it odd that I'm the mentor in the local anime group. I'm always the oldest one there by 5 years, and sometimes the school aged kids ask me questions about bullying and how to get it to stop, or just general life questions. And I'm only 31! I'm still young dangit!

Pushing 40. been watching since the 1970s. i used to get up around 4:30 in the morning to watch Battle For The Planets, Star Blazers and Robotech on a UHF station that barely reached our location. the station was based about 2 hours away . There were mornings where i had to HOLD THE RABBIT EARS!!! just to get a picture (anyone else remember those days?). for young ones in the audience Cable was too expensive back then. And none of the mainstream Channels (CBS, ABC, NBC) aired anime.

It is kinda funny i do sometimes feel like I should not be here because of my age. but then i think i am here for the anime not what other members on the site think. I have never been told to leave because of my age. I originally joined so my baby girl ( she will be 15 this year) and I could watch more current shows. thinking about my daughter's age is making me feel WAY OLD right now.

To be honest I am in this for the long haul. I will watch anime til the day i die! I would like to post often but sometimes the age gap gets to me.

bwahahahaha, so many oldies comin out of the woodworks to tell people who think they are oldies that they aren't really oldies :D


but good for you, being a supportive parent and not letting your kids feel odd for watching anime and such. There is that stigma in society that won't be cleared for at least another generation, unfortunately.

It's hard finding people that enjoy these things, I don't mind if they are 90 years old. That being said, it'd be awesome to find people my age.

LMFAO. That brings back so many memories. And we had a black & white TV forever. :)

Agreed. I don't see any reason to stop watching.

You are never too old to enjoy something that you love, and if anyone disagrees I will beat them with my cane!

heh... speaking anime helps sometimes though.. Nothing like a real good "Higurashi face" at her male suitor on the way out the door to make make sure ones innocent niece comes home... intact.
