I'm turning 21 and still overly obsessed with anime, since it's a really big part of my life.
And I really mean it I'm too obsessed with it xD the only times I don't think about anime is when I work and study. Even during those times an idea or two pop up for my stories which are fanfics of the anime I love.
Uhhh this is becoming unhealthy I think I take things I love too far I actually need help..

Anyways anyone who fusses over someone's hobbies because of their age is normal I think? They'll come to understand later on when they find themselves still liking anime when they're older.

You are never too old to enjoy a well made story and you are never too old to enjoy art in any form.
Anime is a mixture of both.
If anyone thinks Anime is just for kids, they should watch Wolf's Rain.

I'm 41 years old and my first anime experience was Tank Police.
i'll be watching anime as long as there are good stories that entertain me.

I plan to as well as the other titans, mecha is my #1 genre after all.
Well.. all i can really say about that is at least i got a badass gif out of the series.

It's no where near the levels of the visual novel though, unfortunately the vision the author dreamed of was destroyed by the decision of the studio to swap directors after two episodes.. those first two episodes were the best as well.

29 year old here, still watching anime, though in general I find myself always going back to the classics, especially because so many are becoming hard to find and rare. I still like newer anime, but I feel it's become fewer and far between. It doesn't quite give me the same feelings old anime used to. But I'll continue to support it, if only that someday more older anime gets liscense rescues or re-releases. There's so much good stuff out there besides what's new and hot right now.

Well, I'm 56, an accountant and formerly a fansubber back in the old days of laser disks and SVHS master tapes. My first exposure to anime was the dubbed Starblazers in the mid-80s. What really got me hooked was when a comic store manager turned me on to the Kimagure Orange Road OAVs back in the very early 90's.

As a few others have posted, I miss the story telling of older anime. I don't know if there will ever again be titles that touch the heart like Orange Road, Ah My Goddess, or a number of other titles from the late 80's and early 90's, but I hope there will be. And I'll probably be hanging around to watch them when they come out.

If you say the Comic Store was 'Hill City Comics and Cards' I'm going to freak out that we both know Rob Quin.

Hey everyone! I have commented to Crunchyroll forum posts before but I don't think I have ever started a thread here! So. here goes!

I wanted to address something that have been wondering about for a while. How many older anime fans are there on this site? Whenever I look at the posts in the forums, I see a lot of younger people. It's nice to know that anime is becoming popular among the younger demographics. I have been an anime fan since adolescence. I grew up watching Sailor Moon, DBZ, Gundam Wing, etc. Sometimes I feel like of out of place commenting in the forums because of my age. Yes, I'm 29 years old and by mst people's standards I am too old to be watching anime. Anime is a passion of mine and I don't forsee myself giving it up in the near future.

I love this site and the people on it seem like really cool people. I just don't want to feel so lame when I post on the forums. I don't want people thinking "wow, she shouldn't even be on this site. She's ancient." I know it's an exaggeration but I do feel out of place here at times.

Any older anime fans want to chime in? Do you feel like "the old one out" at times?


All I can't say is that anime is not created by children. They are done by grown ass adults.
And, everyone grows old.

That silly Sunday comic strips you read in the newspapers, with childish looking faces--drawn by adults.

I landed in CR around early 2007. That's when Sailormoon was still being shown. I watched a few episodes of it in the early years. So, naturally, I wanted to know how was it going to end--a closure. Couldn't believe I watched all 300 episodes of it. I'm like wow.

Don't even ask me how fast I watched season series of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni in 3 to 4 days.
