Well; I think this is the first time I've posted anything. While I don't consider myself old... I can remember seeing "Star Blazers" as a first run on Sat. morning cartoons. But I think the thing that sealed the deal was spending 4 years in Japan (Okinawa) when I was in my 20's reading manga with the magazine in one hand and a Japanese-English translation dictionary in the other. Great times
I just usually don't post because this isn't what those of us that are in our 40's grew up with.. I was an early adopter, built my first computer in 1978 (Heathkit 89) and do networking for a living. but most of my peers didn't get machine of their own until the middle 80's. Plus the signal to noise ratio is pretty low if you know what I mean..

That made me laugh so hard I nearly fell off my chair (easy enough to do if you sit on a Pilates ball)

>.< You are never to old to enjoy your life and the things you love. I'll be a anime lover until they stuff me in a coffin.

Haha!! I'm 48! you bunch of young whipper snappers. I was watching Anime when Speed Racer was still in diapers!


Crap you're older than me, I did see a lady on here in her late 50's. Maybe she's the Empress of Anime.

I don't consider myself old at 29 but seeing a lot of peoples ages on this forum defiantly makes me feel old lol. I have watched anime for quite awhile now and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. I still love to sit around and play video games and watch anime. I have noticed the older I get after working 40+ hours a week and just hearing all the bs thats going on in the news and poltics a lot of times I just want to "escape" and play my video games and watch anime or whatever. It reminds of simpler times I had when I was still in school and just being a kid.

Im 34 and just started watching anime at 27, so I was a late bloomer (was into sports and so forth when I was younger) but iot is mainly because I have young kids and find myself home more. Anime is great and something I look forward to every week. Especially once Attack on Titan comes back.... Never too old or too young, be you and enjoy life my friend.

I'm 32 and I can't see myself be here for much longer. The same bullshit that go`s on in youtube go`s on here. Only worse. F$cking Marxists .
all the shit in the general threads are topics cover 4 years ago. the manginery is to thick in today`s anime.



Happy birthday young man!

I found a forum for only older fans online, Anime Past. It's pretty sweet, since we just talk about the old days of fansubs and VHS tapes, but we also discuss new anime too.

BTW, there's only 1 week left to pledge for Creamy Mami on Anime Sols: http://animesols.com/videos/101

I am nearly 40 and was hooked after watching Vampire hunter D on Sci Fi. I will always love anime.
