In my time I’ve watched a LOT of TV. I’ve seen a LOT of movies. I became a fan of Japanese animation in the 80s because it was so different from the Hollywood drivel. On the whole it seems smarter, better thought out. Ten years from now I’ll still be seeking out anime.

Unless all anime turn into Real Housewives of New Jersey... I will continue to watch. If Crunchyroll went down, i'd probably watch less. I hardly post because most of the threads are 'trophy threads' and I certainly don't have many to talk about. The one time I did try to be friendly, I got hand-slapped by a mod. Understandable, I guess, as I was trying to start up a gaming group with like-minded individuals.

Going back to the original point, never too old.

One's never too old to be watching anime. I've been actively watching anime since I was 16. I have no intention of stopping, either. As long as I'm able to see, I'll be watching.

At 40 years old, I fell down an internet rabbit hole one year ago and became totally hooked. Never watched an anime at all before that, and never expected to. It seems one can never be too old start!

28 years old here, been watching anime for more than two decades, my first anime was Robotech/Macross that I cathced on reruns in my native country, I also watched others from Saban such as the Samurai Pizza Cats, in those time I didn't know what anime was until a friend introduced me to the Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, Saint Seiya, Neon Genesis Evangelion, among others and since then I have been hooked on anime.

Always remember:

R U kidding? Bah! Your're never too old! Some of the stuff is made by geezers older than ourselves! Anime....blah, blah, blah, has been around longer than most of the ppl here.....I'm 42 with 3 teens (oldest is 17) and a 3yr old, and I've been watching this stuff since I was in elementary school and was living overseas (former military brat). I also read manga/manhwa. I do have to admit, however, that nobody but immediate family knows about my Anime/Manhwa habit, ....but some (outsiders) do know about my K-drama/Wuxia habit ....apparently that's more acceptable for an adult. Bah!

Well, I am glad to see I am not the only 'cronologically gifted' person that watches anime. I have been hooked since the days when Robotech aired at 6AM on our local UHF station. The good news is most of my friends are 'weirdos' of one sort or another so they can't give me a hard time for watching anime.

I think it's great to see such a large span of "older" anime lovers on here. I only had one person on here ask me a few years back if I really did still watch anime at my age. My asnwer is yes, 'til the day I die!

Well, speaking as a member of what I originally thought of as part of a club that had a membership of one, I'm glad to see that we older folks are still appreciating quality anime. I too started out with Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, Speed Racer, and Gigantor. Then a little later on it was Voltron (Golion). Then after my daughter was born, when she was about six, she fell in love with Sailor Moon, and I watched it along with her. And after that, I was re-hooked on what I found out was called anime. And now I like to check out the newer releases as much as I can. I can't believe how much the animation and artwork have changed and improved. And the integration of CGI tends to really blur the lines between fantasy and reality, depending on the quality of work. I've seen CGI that looks as smooth as the hand drawn work, and some that just SCREAMS sloppy work.

But I digress.

Anyway, it's good to see the older demographics are still alive and kicking.

Of course theres older anime fans ever heard of seinen? Those typically dont sell all that welll but what are you gonna do?


The ones that do sell are usually really good. As I recall it targets male audiences from ages 18-30 but can past the 40s. The female equivalent is called Josei which targets ages 15-40 and beyond. Most of the titles I watch are seinen and they're all titles that have sold fairly well. Also, just because it targets a set age range doesn't mean it's only for those ages, I think lots of young people (younger than 18 anyway) watch seinen and josei now a days, though I could be wrong and that could just be me talking for myself.
