I actually respect older anime fans. They're able to retain their childish streak through adulthood and even seniority. I hope to be able to do the same.

What is considered 'older', btw? Hell, I've met kids that were 13 or 14 who knew more about anime than I ever had, and I've been watching since I was 6.

I remember downloading Dragonball Z from Limewire by a coincidence. Those where the times. After that I found Bleach and it took me completely. Simply amazing I thought. Entertainment from Japan is the best!!!

I'm turning 22 this month and I can see myself watching anime well into my future. I grew up watching it and I'm sure a lot of people here have as well. I find that I enjoy anime much more than the other stuff I see on TV because there is much more variety in anime then there is in current television. The way I see it is your never too old for something you truly enjoy.

Who cares about age, I mean I was writing explicit eroge at 14. You're really only as old as you act and feel.

I'm almost 40 and an anime fan and gamer for life.

Seriously when I'm 90 I'll still be trying to catch all 1246 Pokemon....

Hey all. I'm a 30yr old guy, married, no kids, white-collar suburban professional.

Though I consider my gateway anime to be Robotech back in primary school days, apart from when NG Evangelion first aired on televesion in the late 90's and a minor 'Chuu2byou' phase early on in university life (defined by a weebish obsession with Naruto), my early years were largely devoid of much anime.

My true entrance into otakudom was in the mid 2000's during the moeblob boom - Haruhi, Rozen Maiden '06 and Lucky Star. Haven't looked back since - visual novels, anime, manga, collecting figures.

These days the demands of working life has meant I've had to reduce my consumption to more sustainable levels but on average I still watch about three shows per season.

As I've grown older I've become more interested in the anime industry itself - in terms of the process of production, the people involved and the economics of it all. I've also come to appreciate the technical aspects of the animation and evaluating it as a work of art. I'll have to admit there was a time when I was in it for the hot 2D chicks, cool fighting robots and grimdark angsty storylines. Well, I still am but now with a more mature and discreet appreciation of those aspects :D

34 here. Not "old" but not part of the young crowd anymore either.

I grew up mostly watching American animated series like GI Joe, She-Ra, He-Man, as well as non-American stuff like Candy, Les Mystérieuses Cités d'Or, etc.

I don't post much in the forums, I mostly am just here to watch anime & some dramas, although I wish there were more j-dramas on here :/

Once in a while, I find myself wondering a similar question. Those around me have lost interest in watching anime as their lives continue forward. I on the other hand haven't changed much as I pursued my career early on. Much of it is gained through determination and since I don't have a boss, I find myself watching quite a bit of anime. Nowhere near as much as when I was younger. I find myself observing the youth of today in their enthusiastic proclamations to their interest in anime.

It's quite nice seeing such enthusiasm as well as willingness to share their support for the older fans. While I do post in the forums once in a while, I generally keep distance from the forums. In a sense, it feels as if I'm whistling while walking trying to sound cool or appear surrealistically normal only to realize I've been walking on a carousel.

Well we can't stop ourselves from aging. I mean we are going to get older whether we like it or not but we doesn't mean we have to give up what we love. The anime fans who stop watching anime after college only give it up because they are too busy not because they have stopped liking it. If anime wasn't for adults then we wouldn't have seinen anime. (which is anime that is for people 18-30 years old) They even have magazine called "Business Jump" which is like "Shounen Jump" but for adults. If non-anime fans make fun of you then its their loss because your happy and they are not. If anime fans make fun of you (which I think doesn't happen) they its their fault because they should know how it feels to be picked on for liking anime and they are going to be older sooner or later.
