Im having a good time working in the anime business part time. In my teens i was never into anime, just american video games, but then in my late teens/early 20's i really got into foreign films, especially Japanese horror, then found out anime has much much better and twisted story lines than american stuff. Plus the anime fans i meet are as interesting and as weird as me. 10 years now in the biz, I think i'm in for life now and proudly admit it

Wow, all the 40s, 50s, and 60s on here. It's good to see that a good story and exciting artwork is enjoyed across the generations. By the way, my dad is 80 and he still reads young adult fiction, He says the writing is better and he doesn't have to worry about a gratuitous sex scene springing out of nowhere to ruin the plot. I don't think I'll try and explain what fan service means.

26 years old, I've been watching anime since a child (9 years old) with sailor moon, card captors, dragon ball z and I haven't stopped. I remember as a child all my sisters and brothers would watch but I'm the only one that is still into it! I love it so much I don't think I'll ever stop:)

don't deny it; you've tried it. It's okay; we all have tried it.

Here are the things about anime when I bother telling people that I'm into it:

1. Anime has every genre just like film does (this usually baffles them).

2. A lot of regular films were based off of animes.

3. Although you get repetition, same as any other art form, because of its comparatively low costs to the film or game industry, people are more likely to try new ideas that are likely to be hit or miss. This means there's always something different happening, somewhere, so it hasn't homogenized (yet) like the American film industry.

4. Because of its format, people can portray ideas that would cost a fortune to render in other formats. The Matrix was so similar to Ghost in the Shell that the Wachowski brothers asked various permissions before going ahead with their project. To quote them: "We wanna do that for real." The Matrix cost $63 million to make, GitS cost almost $6 million to make. Inception cost $160 million to make, and the anime it was based off of, Paprika, cost $4 million to make. I think you get the picture.

Feel free to steal my bullet points, fellow oldies.

31 years old and I refuse to stop watching! I remember when they used to show anime very late at night on the Scifi Channel (it's called SyFy now I know. ). The very first one I saw was a movie that was titled Black Magic M66 and I was floored by it, probably because I was about eleven and wasn't supposed to be up that late anyway but oh well. A few nights later I stayed up to watch Akira and Tekken: The Motion Picture. The first series I'd ever actually seen was Sailor Moon; Cartoon Network wasn't around then and it was being shown on this obscure satellite channel that had testing patterns where the commercials were supposed to go.

Too old for anime? You're only too old if you're dead.

I make similar ones. 1 is very common. usually combined with a lengthy explanation of why "oh so you watch that pokemon stuff" is an insult to some fans.
