Post Reply Someone tells ya you're too old for Anime?
Posted 3/17/16
My parents say that, even though they still watch some.
I never understood that, they get all defensive when I mention it to them

So what if they did say that. It's not as if it would affect my choices. Originally animation was created for adults first then it became entertainment for children.

I tell them, "You're never too old for anime, bitch"

When younger I used to tell people who made the wise-ass comments where to go and how to get there. Now, I use their own arguments against them, "Do you think Guillermo Del Toro, Stephen Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino and Michael Bay are too old to be watching anime and reading manga?". When it comes to rich famous people who make movies they know and enjoy, the "too old" question becomes a moot point to most questioners.

I would literally say "F*ck you." Seriosuly people look at anime as childish but it's completely acceptable to watch Family Guy, The Simpsons, South park, etc? B.S. I'd say.

If someone told me I was too old, I'd shrug and just tell them to mind their own business, or fuck off, whatever the level of rudeness was towards me in regards to the comment. It's none of their business what I do with my spare time. I don't see anime detrimentally affecting my life so there's no real need for anyone to butt in.

LOL! I'm a grown man I can spend my time and money on whatever I please. I stopped caring what people think about me after high school. Most liberating choice I have made in my life.

I've never had anyone say anything negative to me about watching anime. But i think if anyone did, I would first acted surprised and say, "It's against the rules for someone my age to watch anime?" Then i would pump my fist and yell, " Yes!! I'm breaking the rules! I'm a bad man!" In my experience, the best way to deal with irritating people is confuse the living crap out of them. They expect you to be defensive, or confrontational, or just let them walk over you. They have no idea how to react when you don't do any of them and usually end up leaving you alone afterwards. At least that's how it's been for me.

That's like saying you're too old to play video games, or eat candy. I do all 3, so whoever you are dissing me (I wish there was middle finger emoji... insert here).
