Anime isn't just for kids. There are many different kinds of anime. It's like TV shows on cable or something. They have shows for adults and shows for kids. You never be to old for quality entertainment like anime.

No, I will enjoy anime, comics, and video games for the rest of my life. I once tried to hide my love for these things, but no longer. A poster earlier posted a quote that I agree with 100%. If there's anything I've gotten too old for, it's hiding things I enjoy out of fear of rejection.

Sometimes.
Most of the characters are younger, but the stories are good. Girls Und Panzer is funny to watch. There are some of the Hell-Girl episodes, especially the 3rd season (3 vessels), that are almost exclusively geared toward tween early teen issues. I find myself thinking- "Is that the biggest problem you have?". I think back to when I was that age, trying to relate but it was quite awhile ago...
Total Eclipse; I had to give up on. Too much immature writing/characters. Then there's the 'states of 'undress', by the younger characters, where I suddenly feel like yelling at them to “Put some clothes on!”

In a way yes, I do get tired of the high school/middle school ones, or the ones where there
are like 13 year old anime showing their panty's...I don't want to see that...if she was like a 25 year old
Then I'd be ok with it. Plus I find very few anime geared for adults...at this rate I can see giving up on
anime in the future NOT because I'm too old to watch it, but because anime doesn't take itself seriously
enough to make enough great anime for a slightly older crowd. Its just good business...its obvious that anime fans
will get older; the gaming industry understands this fully and had kept the attention of the first Nintendo players ...now there's
Games like halo 4 that you need an adult to buy for you. Maybe one day most anime won't be for age 10-17.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves.
To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.
And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow.
But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development.
When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly.
When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
--C.S. Lewis


This is a quote I like to live my life by.

I've found that my tastes may have changed as I've aged and delved further into the anime fandom, but that's certainly no reason to cease being a fan. For every "teenager saves the world from evil" and "nerdy guy gets the hot girls" show out there--for every Naruto, every To Love Ru--there's a Steins;Gate, a Clannad, a Serial Experiments Lain, a Neon Genesis Evangelion.

If you realize you're watching a show with the same old premise as a dozen other titles you've gone through, drop it and find another. Anime is a massive medium. There's a show for every mood you're in; you shouldn't base the entire medium off of two or three genres--whether they're the most prevalent or not.



Agreed. Took the words right out of my mouth! I love that quote btw. I read lots of his stuff and have one of his quotes in my profile now.

Anyway, being adult and maturing are two separate concepts. It's okay to not like an anime because you've matured. But I wouldn't stop watching something for the sake of being adult.
