Anime is for kids. It's also for adults. Growing up is guaranteed in life. Becoming mature is not.

Be prepared.


Just going to throw this out there, but lots of guys over 21 think the same way. Just saying.

Also in fairness to the girls, 90% of Japan over 21 thinks the same way. On the bright side, latest research does show that you might be slightly more socially acceptable if you are not into Supporting Your Local Idols as well. Albeit in the way dirt is more acceptable than mud because it is easier to clean away.

Personally I am glad for my Anime habit. It is the first thing I bring up with girls usually. Why? Because it weeds them out. Am I a rebound? Are they just going out with me for the money? Am I just that boyfriend they get while looking for something better? Are they really an ax murderer in disguise? You do not have any of these lingering questions. Just show them your Anime collection, if that does not freak them out then having a used clothes pile on the floor is not going to either.

Although, just a warning, forgetting to put the seat down is always going to freak them out. Invest in one of those cool Japanese toilets that puts the seat down automatically. Seriously, worth every penny.

The last has absolutely nothing to do with girls over 21 liking or not liking Anime, just a general public service announcement.

For all the people saying that its guys too... let me throw this out there for you.

I'm not looking for a guy to spend time with, so... when I'm out talking and chatting and meeting and getting to know women, what a guy thinks matters not to me. Now, some of you can argue that both sides are the same and bla bla bla, thats true. There are guys over 21 that feel the same way, but they aren't driving me to destroy the world you live on. Why? Maybe you missed it... so I'll say it again... I date/go out of my way to meet/ approach, FEMALES! Now call me sexist if you want.

At the end of the day I'm a strait male who, dates females, and would like to at some point meet one thats not bla bla bla anime is for kids that shares several of my other interest. Anime however is a staple, she could be the near perfect woman, if she doesn't accept anime and it's role in my life everything else is null and void. NOW again... I CARE NOT for any male that doesn't appreciate anime. If a guy tells me I need to grow up, I tell him he needs to grow a bigger ***** and carry on.

Moral of the story, I don't care what guys have to say, I care about what women have to say.

My guy friends, over the age of 21, are much more accepting of anime than my girl friends. ._. I think a lot of it is the push of shonen anime in the US when we were younger.

Seriously!! I guess I should be watching "Reality TV" because finding out what Honey BooBoo is doing or who ever it is people watch these days makes you a real adult.

Grumble grumble grumble.


Just tell her that her breath stinks and offer her a mint, that will drop her attitude down a level and take advantage of the confusion

Most of my girlfriends don't watch anime, but they also don't think it's for kids. That may be because they don't really know what anime is all about. Maybe you should look for women who are more open-minded (or in my girlfriend's cases, blank slates). That way, you can properly introduce her to the genre.

Who knows, she may get the itch and before you know it, she's cosplaying with you at your next con. ^-~

Good luck!

My question is, why is it you still associate and waste your time on imbeciles like that? Your precious time could be spent on watching anime or getting to know more people with similar commonalities. I'm just saying that there isn't any reason for you to become negative because others choose to be negative towards, in this instance, anime. Don't let them wreck your coolness, bro!

But how do you respond when they do say this? If you just rage and swear (not saying you do, but I know other people do when their interests are insulted), they aren't going to change their opinion.

Anyway, whether an anime is for kids or adults depends on the individual show. Even if it is a show for adults it doesn't necessarily mean it is good, intelligent, well-made, interesting, etc.. Also we have hentai, that's obviously not for children.

If you like something, what does your age matter as long as it does not harm anyone?

We (people of the world) need to stop thinking so much about what others will think, but rather how we feel on things.

Ridiculous.

The creature to the left is Honey Boo Boo.
That is her mother next to her.


THIS!!! Is what "normal" people spend their days watching. Reality TV at its finest, right there.

How can anime be only for kids if it's Chinese cartoon porn at the same time?
