I played many jrpgs and watched many animes. Most of time the main characters are young. Too little to few of storylines of experienced older heroes. I just would like it if they actually changed it up alot instead of using young main characters. So glad they made a game called Lost Odyssey and Gun Grave for once. Even Vash The Stampede hero was great. Kino in the beautiful world is still fantastic character with a blend of the 2.

Holy shit, talk about an age jump once you hit the 25+ age range.

To answer your question, I'm fucking tired of teenage protagonists and harem animes so give me some late 20's to early 30's protagonists now. I mean seriously, let's mix it up a little.

I don't mind late teens or early twenties. I mean it really depends on the show.

It just depends on what the anime is about tbh.

I'm new here, but I would bring up a discussion, how do you feel about most major anime characters are teenagers? This disrupts you identify with the character?

Honestly, I feel a little disturbed to see that my favorite characters are mostly teenagers, it makes me feel I'm getting old for these animes.

18-25 for most shows. For shows like Duarara and Baccano, where there are many protagonists, I like the age to be spread between the top four choices.

This forum should help you find some new favorites. Pre-/teenagers are the main demographic group anime shows are aimed at. I do not take it too seriously or try to think about it a lot. If I identify with a younger character, it if because I have been there or that connection is universally themed.

18-25 hands down! Unless its an anime that shows progression through childhood into teenage years into young adulthood then I would be fine with that.
