Yea, actually. Almost all of the characters are barely over 14, and it seems like almost all of them are in middle school or high school. I feel a bit uneasy saying whether they are attractive or not every time somebody asks. The only salvation is they are not real.

People in their 20's saying they feel old, make me feel old. I liked anime from age 13 for over 40 years, I like seeing the changes and the story being variations of The Hero of a Thousand Faces.
From the Book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell summarized the monomyth:


A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.

This is the Trope, I grew up with and Anime keeps it alive.
Which is why it keeps me feeling young in my heart.

Anime does make me feel old. It would be cool this anime is in a high school I'm going to be old enough to go to high school in a few years. Later it was oh this anime is taking place in a high school I'm in a high school too. Later this anime is taking place in a high school and now I'm like that was me in high school years ago.
