31 here, wife is 33, we watch a lot of anime, and have many outlets to do so. We also frequent Sakura-con in nearby Seattle.

Edit: Thought I would expand a bit.

I like the slice of life anime, and harem comedies and anything on the "ecchi". Got my start with a local video rental chain that is now long gone. I would use their 5 for 5 for 5 deals to rent many of the "VHS" golden era of anime, things like Devil hunter Yohko, Ah! (Oh) my Goddess, Tenchi, and many not suitable to mention.... this was in my early teens, before i was even driving.

Wife and I met in high school while i was viewing a anime message board on the school's library computers. She enjoys a lot of the same, but also likes the period romance, and anime that has a bit of folklore or historic type of story.

We even have 3ft tall anime on our cars. I have Miku, and wife has nurse ver. Sonico. We have plans to add more keeping the same characters.

I doubt our like of anime will extinguish it's self anytime soon, as we are always looking into ways of broadening our experiences, like this year we plan on going to AX, though we will have to miss Sakura con to do it this year.

Its encouraging to check this particular forum. Its not just anime its the culture i love. My favorite Snacks are pocky's and ramue. i enjoy reading manga alot. There seems to be a movie or a series for everyone and it does not discriminate on anyone. i do admit i do buy way to many sweets when i go to the cons

My first true love is music. I love all genres. (and just to clarify = Michael Jackson is not a genre of music.) So, i sang in choir and was introduced to music from other countries. my faves are traditional celtic , traditional Japanese, j-pop and Native American. I am mainly a rock guy.

seems like i am straying but there is a point....when you appreciate one thing from that country (snacks, music, TV, Anime) it opens you up to experience everything that the foreign culture has to offer. My mom taught me to buy a whole album, because you never know what you will find. You might find a song that you love better than the one you bought it for. i passed that idea onto my daughter but my version was "listen to ALL forms of music there might be something you like out there better than here. now she has become a big Hatsune Miku fan.
she is also trying to learn japanese.

if it had not been for the music and anime we could have ended up like most americans locked in a little box with no appreciation for anything but our own culture.

I've been watching anime for very a long while and I'm old enough not to care what others think of it. Yes, I'm really my posted age. My wife and I watch anime here (via Roku) and on Funi's site on a weekly basis. I hardly ever post because I'm extremely busy with work and simply don't have the bandwidth to watch and then discuss it.

As a few others have mentioned, Japanese culture, art and ethos as a whole are the principle attractors, anime is but one aspect that we enjoy.

The very very very first anime I watched was called 'The Noozles." It was about a girl and these two alien koala bears. I was I think 6 or 7 and I am 29 now. So many years of liking, loving and preferring anime to American animation.

It is good to know there are many of us that aren't teens anymore that still enjoy it. At times I had felt like the 'old one' when it came to shopping for anime/manga items, but now I don't have to feel that way
I don't think I will ever get tired of it. So many new ones come out so often.

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


Twiddling my thumbs too much.

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



LOL! Thank you for having a sense of humor!

That's a horrible feeling, being that young and suddenly feeling "out of it." The best is yet to come. My 30th birthday freed me from expectations of all sorts, though I had dreaded turning 30, thinking it would be depressing. Au contraire!

I'm an admitted lurker, proven by the fact that this is my first post , and at 41 yrs old seem to be close to the upper end of the 'old' population here at CR. My wife Arsenette and I currently use CR on our PS3 and computers more often then we do Netflix. My introduction to anime was from Marine Boy and Speed Racer, followed by Gatchaman and Space Battleship Yamato (under their then-localized titles of G-Force and Star Blazers). Our twenty-something nephews think that we're the 'cool uncle and aunt' because we're into anime and are both avid gamers. From weird and nerdy to cool in 10 years...go figure.

I virtually ignored all the CR forums for the 4 plus years I've been a member until I came across this post. Now I'm all over them shits because I realized there are quite a few of us geezers on here....

Just a question, but what age does everyone think that they are considered 'old'? For me, I believe 70 and up is old...
