The only problem I have with anime is the number of series I watch every season. I do woodworking too in my garage and have only so much time to do both/either and I like doing both. There's just not enough time in a day.

Fuse both into one? Make a wood working bench that has a tv/computer screen built into the bottom. Then as your looking down and working, you get to watch anime!

I am glad to come across a thread like this. I was beginning to think I was old.

"Too old" for anime never really crossed my mind until I saw this thread. I didn't really watch any as a kid anyway, so it's not something I associate with childhood. I definitely wouldn't give it up anyway, now that anime is somewhat easy to get a hold of. You guys remember how hard and expensive it was to get anime on VHS back in the day? lol


Oh definitely. I used to ask other anime fans for VHS copies of 90's OVA titles. I bought only one licensed anime on VHS and several anime laserdiscs from Pioneer. Then I moved onto DVD.

I keep my age on here around 30 but I'm older. I'be been a fan long enough to remember before the term anime or Japanimation. My first anime was probably Speed Racer or Marine Boy. Glad to see not all of us have left but there were others AND we were active with 2 or 3 "senior," if you will, closed groups. Of course this was about a hundred years ago before CR went all legit. Perhaps we're not all that sociable, but we're around.

I don't know why people in 20's expressing themselves as feeling old. It's the BEST age group which all kind of opportunities are pretty much possible. Is it because they can't say and do things that they used to do as kids?

When you put it like that, you're telling that person to injure himself. Think about it.

I'm 27 and have been watching anime since I was about 4 (although at the time I didn't know it was anime until a lot later) - there no harm in still watching it as adults, truth be told the younger audience are probably not the fans who are buying all the expensive mech, dvds, blurays

I am an older fan. Been watching it since I was 5-ish. Remember the first anime I saw, I think, was a direct to VHS movie that was pretty cool. My interest peaked in my teens years and has been pretty minimalistic recently. Like really just keeping up with older series I used to watch. Not really into too many of the new shows. I mean it's not I haven't seen some of the standouts like Tiger and Bunny, but I really haven't got absorbed into a show like I used to and the amount of shows I watch now is slim.

I watched with my kids and it got me hooked. But it is the storytelling that keeps me watching. Bad story and I will just ignore. Good story and I will watch as much as I can as often as I can. When the kids are home we still compare notes and watch and talk with each other. It is a great way to keep communication open. You never age out of a great story

I'm in my 30's and still love anime. I don't think it will be any different when I'm in my 60's.

I have the same conversation with a buddy of mine whose 49 years old going on fifty, this old metal head XD first discovered anime back in the late 1960s. I told him if he still watch the new shows and he simply said " nah, dude."

We can talk about Robotech, a little Gundam, Vandread, bubblegum crisis and etc, but if I throw in a harem anime he'll be like "da fuck?" XD
