I'm 26 and I only recently got into anime and manga. I'm a guy, and the stuff I like most is... (slice of life/romance animes that make me cry. There, I said it.) I just feel so refreshed watching some animes. I agree with what Hayagriva said above that because of lower production costs anime is relatively more free to experiment and take risks than film and tv. I think many animes use this freedom to be more emotionally honest than lots of other entertainment, foregoing the stilted "swagger" that the entertainment market usually demands; and in a way, even when bizarre or taboo, a lot of the stories have a kind of innocence and a "heart of gold" that is hard to find elsewhere. I don't know if I would want to watch anime I really like with other people though... it's kind of a private thing for me.

I'm not surprised to see the older generation still loving anime. After all the 80'-mid 90's had the best saturday morning and after school cartoons in history. Generation X's nostalgia alone is fueling Hollywood's blockbusters.

What I think people don't realize is that anime isn't just for kids some have really deep and moving stories. What, if it doesn't have live action actors in it it should be dismissed as not being serious enough? I hate misconceptions like this. I will admit my tastes have changed in the anime that I watch. I loved SM and DBZ but I could not watch those shows if I were introduced to them now. But everyone's different. I just hate being ragged on for watching anime and having a 3DS when people don't know the shows I watch or the games I play.

considering a lot of hollywoods blockbusters are remakes of a story from the early days of Hollywood/filmmaking/storytelling (or older)

My wife and I are both in our late 40's and watch anime almost daily. We were both raised on Saturday morning cartoons. We're both professionals. We have two children, both grown and married. One watches anime, and one doesn't. I remember back in the late 70's watching Star Blazers after school. Couldn't stand the trends in American cartoons (Beavis and Butthead, really?). Ran across Clannad and Clannad After Story a few years ago and we've been hooked ever since. Glad to know there are some like us out there. Tough to have a conversation at work about anything anime. "Hey! Did you guys see the new Attack on Titan episode?" "I wish they'd release season two of Pet Girl of Sakurasou" "I love the way she calls her Miss Ultrasonic!". Yeah, lotsa blank stares...

45 here and still watching anime. My wife is in her late 30's and watches anime at times with me as well. Recently we've been lending our Studio Ghibli DVDs to a couple in their 30s who we are friends with to watch.

Us older folks probably have less time to post on the forum, but we are still here. The only reason I'm active on the forum today is because work is in a rare slow period for me.

I'll be 27 in less than 2 weeks. Been watching for the last 9 or so years and while the number of series I find enjoyable has gone down I always manage to find a gem or two per season. I wanna be the grumpy old grandpa who watches hentai at the age of 80.

35 (-ish) and I think the first anime I ever watched was either the old Vampire Hunter D or Fist of the North Star. I've been hooked ever since. Some day I'd love to take the time to revisit Sailor Moon too.

Turning 30 this year and been watching anime since my first VHS (google it :P) of SDF Macross in '92. And to be honest. I'll probably still watch anime when i'm 80 if they still make it then. Who cares about age. Just watch what you enjoy not what others expect of you. You life has to be fun right :D.

I'll be hitting the big 4 0 in a few months. lol.
there is NO age limit when talking about anime.
I will watch it until the day I die.
so will my daughter (yep she loves CR and anime)
so will my mom (yes she's on here somewhere watching it too)

three generations of my family enjoy the heck out of it, sometimes we even watch it together.

33 here, nothing wrong with it, granted yeah there are so many that are a lot younger, that its hard to not feel out of place at times, but still, I like it, and they like it, granted they definitely like to flaunt it more than the older crowd tho.
