Well, let's see. i was born in '79. grew up in the 80's and was 20 by 1999. I consider myself an 80'90's kid, which in my humble opinion was the heyday. We had everything from Macross to GI Joe and Power Rangers and DBZ and everything in-between.

It's for Anime lovers in general. 90's kids just happen to be the majority. I'd imagine that holds true for anime fans in general (or younger people).

Well forums are for anyone that finds their way into them and enjoys discussion and sharing with the medium. I think a very small % of crunchy users participate on the forums.

Generally, people younger than 20's don't have money, and are therefore more likely to be active on whatever sites they're pirating from... -theYchromosome


Toonami. That's why. -PJ

Both of these are good points in demographic too. The 90s were a great time for the introduction of anime to American culture. Not to say there weren't other great times, but coinciding with the internet booms it seems more influential.

The 90's? Don't you mean the 80's? lol, where do you live?

The concept of the "90's kid" is pretty open to interpretation, & definitely pretty controversial to many. Is a 90's kid someone who grew up in the "coming of age" phase in the 90's or someone simply born in the 90's? I always thought of "90's kid" meaning someone born in the early-mid 80's, but I suppose someone born in the 90's could identify as one as well. I was born in 1987; I grew up with NES, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, G.I. Joe toys & the whole sha-bang, though I do have an older brother so I was exposed to many "old-school" things at an early age. By that criteria, I just barely consider myself a "90's kid". I mean, I have vivid memories of 1991 onward, but I wasn't a teenager til 2000. I'm undoubtedly a millennial, but the whole "90's kid" thing is an entirely different concept. Personally, I wouldn't consider someone born in 1995 or 1998 a "90's kid" for the same reason I wouldn't call myself an "80's kid" because I was born in '87. But when it comes down to it, who cares. I mean, seriously, who really gives such a deep flying fuck about such trivial categories & classifications. And I'm not at all directing that towards the OP or anyone in this thread, I'm talking about the people who insist on tearing apart a person born in '93 or something for calling themselves a "90's kid". But from my experience based on who I've encountered on Crunchyroll, most people range from about 16-36. No matter how you slice it, Crunchyroll is certainly for "90's kids".

It's for people who likes anime/manga/drama in general, but when I first started, majority are 90's and now it's been more diverse but a lot of 80s/90s

It's for anyone...

CR is for everybody, but now that you mention it, a significant demographic is likely to be 90's kids.

A very small percentage of crunchy users actually post to the forums. Decent number lurk. Not sure how accurate the "page views" counters are though, threads will literally have 10 or more replies but still show zero views.


Kinda like the "1, 10, 90" principle, where one percent of any given site population creates content (threads on the forum, for example), 10% engage with that content, and 90% passively consumes that content.


That said, it allows for a much larger percentage of people outside younger demographics to be a presence on the forums. It is not at all unusually to have older members of the anime community participating in the forums, compared to other sites, as it appears there is enough of a presence to encourage further participation by those demographics (enough people who aren't teens or twentysomethings participate, which means those who aren't teens or twentysomethings but stumble across the forum feel more comfortable participating).

Anime does tend to target young adults, so it only makes sense that such a demographic is more present on the forums. That said, I'm sure there are plenty of older users who simply aren't that active in the community.

I think are age was around when toonami was kicking the good old days.

I also think that we 90's kids remember using fourms in the early 00's so we kinda miss those days. we grew up in the technological boom.
