Oldest "True" Anime Fan.
Posted 12/17/15
I'm talking about a fan that watches at least modern anime. And is old. Not those Hayao Miyazaki watching Astro Boy Lovers, but those that like Non Non Biyori.

I wish I could remember his name but I was talking on a Twitch feed with a guy who claimed to be 74 and he really liked Charlotte. Doesn't really count since I don't know his CR handle if he has one.

I'm 54, but I am sure there are others older out there.

You'd have to be senile to really like Charlotte.

Well, you do have me beaten, I'll admit that.
And although there's little currently worth watching, knowing about Hestia's string from IIWTPUGIAD does qualify me as "watching current anime". Life's too short, however, for watching more than one episode of Non Non Biyori, and more for some than for others.

(And apparently being one of the immortal Highlanders, I'm old enough to remember when it was all VHS's copied off of imported laserdisc and taped off of afternoon TV, without dubs or subtitles--And if you couldn't find an Animag magazine with a decent synopsis, or didn't have one of those encyclopedic Berkeley Anime Guides from the cons, which compiled scripts and synopses of all the classics in a big 200-pp. book, you struggled through your anime the HARD way.
Although that was part of the fun, since when the TV tapes left in the goofy commercials, it made it seem like you were watching secret broadcasts from Mars.)

Basically, if they still carry a torch for Urusei Yatsura, Lum, and the Dirty Pair, still treat Akira, Vampire Hunter D and Bubblegum Crisis as "classics", claimed to have watched the subbed Sailor Moon before Viz brought it back, or fly into rages at the very mention of Twilight of the Cockroaches, you know you're listening to a 90's original-generation geezer.

Then I'm definitely one senile old 36 year old.

Saying someone is senile for liking Charlotte is just like saying you must be a hipster if you like Cowboy Bebop.

Thanks for reminding me about this, meant to watch it ages ago.

Well My first forays were Astroboy, Gigantor, Speed Racer and then I graduated to Bubble Gum Crisis, Ranma 1/2, Space Battleship Yamato, Captain Harlock and others . I remember how shocked I was by how badly cut up Yamato was to make Star Blazers. 1st season of Ranmka 1/2 still makes me LOL, but then they introduced the worst character in all of anme: Happosai. I will say that it was only farily recently that I became a hard core fan of anime. Most of the time it was just a nice distraction from real life. So far this season my favorite shows are:Anti-Magic Academy; 35th Test Platoon, Chivalry of a Failed Knight and The Asterisk War.

I liked Charlotte up till they introduced the older brother. Then it became a train wreck. I still have a fondness for it (basically cause I loved the character Ayumi).; So its ending was disappointing.

Pirththee is the oldest "true" anime fan I know of on here. He's 61 I think. I haven't seen him around in a few months though. At least not on the forums.

That's the thing. We all have our tastes and I would never dog on anyone for their choices or call someone a name or label them based on their anime preferences. If you like something I don't, we just won't talk about it. Easy as that.

Kind of like in another thread where I do talk about my distaste for the Persona series. I call IT names, but never a fan of it. Or like with OPM and my completely nonchalant attitude towards it. We all like what we like.
