People at work say it to me all the time. When there is downtime people are blasting music, reading books, etc... I watch anime on CR. People sometimes walk into my office without knocking hearing the anime and walk around my desk to see what I am watching. I am usually quick to counter when someone makes that stupid comment.

One guy always makes fun of the high pitched sounds some females make in anime. But his brings a PSP to work and plays GTA V at home. He made the comment one day, and I countered and said you are 10 years older than I and still playing with your PSP and bragging about pissing off kids on GTA. Touché!

He never commented again. LOL.

I am 34 now, when I am in my sixties I will still be watching anime.

I've never heard anyone tell me that, so I'm unsure how I'd react. I think the only thing I would do is question them why they asked me that

I tell them you are completely and utterly RIGHT. I need to get my shit together! Thank you for finally saying what I've needed to hear all these years! You have changed my life! I will now go do what normal people my age do. Drink coffee and read the news.

...is probably what i would say. But I've never had my interests questioned, so either people just accept it, or just don't want to get involved. Either one is fine by me.

I'd say something like "Who needs maturity when I've got anime? All I need is my husbando Naruto" as a joke.

I generally don't take comments like "watching anime makes you childish" seriously and from my tone of voice it's pretty clear I'm joking when I say things like this. If the person isn't willing to drop the subject I guess I'd tell them that I just don't care about their opinion because anyone closed minded enough to make a statement like that isn't worth trying to reason with most of the time.

Someone tried to shame me for liking anime, I laughed at them, and told them a few of my favorite series.
