I have no plans to stop watching anime, along with video games, good movies, good books, this is my entertainment. The point to life is living, and only you should decide what that means for you. If you want to watch anime till your 98 then do it. If you want to stop tomorrow then do it.

Just make sure its your decision and don't let people tell you you have to be a certain thing.




Do you play video games competitively against your kids?
How about watching anime with them?

No curfews?


She still get a curfew since shes only in 5th grade. In bed by 10 on the weekends, 9 on weekdays.
We watch toriko, fairytail, avatar, my little pony, ect.
We play games like little big planet, or rayman. But for the most part shes to the point she really would prefer to play minecraft.
She is going to get her first anime-con trip this weekend at naka-kon.

As I grow older I watch more anime rather than the drivel that network tv tries to foist off on me.

omg, that is so true. i got tired of my fav show getting axed mid way.
it happens in anime, but there is usually a manga to back it up.
besides, lately good tv is hard to find. its mostly recycled.

So true about standard TV. I've stopped watching TV altogether and only been playing video games on it. Most of the time I just use the internet.

If I was permanently rendered unable to play games or go on my computer, I'd rather drop dead then have my brain wasting away watching fake reality show, unoriginal crap, reruns and reboots of shows that have run their course.

The answer is that you're never too old so long as you aren't creepy about it. I hope that the woman I end up falling in love with also likes anime and manga. Who says otaku can't get real love?

Very true. And that's kinda why most people stop watching.

It gets old and it no longer interests... Mainly because the stories become recycled and the target audience gets younger and younger...

I contemplate leaving from time to time, but then there's that one or two titles that always sucks me back in because it's just that good and different....


out of curiosity, what are those one or two titles?

None in particular at the moment, but at various times.

FMA and GITS:SAC brought me running back at one point, after I stopped watching for a while. Parasyte drew me here and Magic Kaito is definitely underrated and are two that keep me interested/following...

Bento came at a time when I was getting tired as well and revitalized that interest, and Hell Girl kept me rapt for years.

What I'm getting at is it's not a particular series that you just follow and follow on. It's perfectly fine to stop for a while when it gets old and tired to you. If it turns out to be a passing fancy, then awesome. If it's something you leave and get drawn back to, then that's equally awesome.

Part of my own situation I think comes from the fact that I did take it seriously in the past, and for so many years that it sort of stuck, but also my outlook. I don't view it as any different than any other medium (and it's really a medium, not a genre), and I'm willing to watch anime titiles, asian dramas, (some based off of anime titles), and american, british, or even the odd other English speaking country's television and see them as synonymous.

That viewpoint is also a product of when I was watching too I believe. When I was younger, it was rarer, but it was more adult oriented than it is now. Once the internet opened it all up, I got to see asian dramas as well, and what got me stated there were titles like IWGP, Gokusen, GTO, etc.... And then I got to learn about some of the Canadian and British scifi shows. (there was a time in the late 90's and early 00's where a LOT of scifi was coming from canada.. Including a good portion of the Scifi channel's lineup [the only source for anime on TV till escaflowne and CCS came to Fox on Saturday mornings], outer limits, etc), and eventually that led to a revitalized interest when they started popping up recently on Hulu (I was one of the few with a beta testing account for them) and other sources (Primeval and Orphan Black are awesome).

It really was all synonymous for me.
