Well, I am curious to find out informally who watches Space Brothers. What is the age distribution? And how do people like this series. Reason I am asking: This series is somewhat atypical in that it does not deal with teenage boys but tells the story of grown men. Does the higher age of the main characters pose a barrier to entry for younger people?

I'm 19, and I enjoy Space Bros. (Especially the recent dramatic episodes.)

The series does get slow occasionally, but when it's good, it's really good.
I think of the series like it's a really long anime-styled American movie, if that makes any sense.

The target audience is probably guys in their late 20s and older, which creates a barrier for younger audiences.
Hell, I thought I would NEVER watch the series.

But after trying the first episode, it gave me a really strong movie vibe, and I think Mutta is a great main character for this type of series.

Real age as shown, 41. I like it but agree it is too slow at times, which can be a problem with such a long running series at times.

I'm 24 ( and female. ). Frankly, it's one of my favorite anime at the moment, and I find myself liking it more and more the further along it gets. I don't mind that it's slow-paced. I tend to prefer that over shows that move at a breakneck pace. ^^;

I'm 20, and I find it to be really enjoyable. Most of the time I feel that the pacing works in favor of the anime. Rarely are there shows that make me sit on the edge of my seat waiting for the next episode. Also, rarely are there shows that make me laugh so hard and tear up in the same episode.

I watch it, but I'm old, so what do I know about whether or not it appeals to younger viewers. But I'll opine anyway.

I think something the series does have, aside from just being good (if a little slow at times) is that, especially in the earlier episodes, there's a lot of harking back to the main characters' childhood. I think that might help alleviate some potential "oh, boring adults" response. Also all the adults have a lot of fresh, sometimes child-like (in a good way) passion for what they do, which I think anyone would find appealing. (But I also don't believe that younger viewers will only watch shows with younger or child-like characters).
