So, you haven't been exposed to the massive range of anime out there? How sad for you.

Most people I've heard say I'm "too old for anime" are usually confused as to whether anime is just boobs (*cough* [email protected] *cough*) or just for kids (*cough* pokemon *cough*)

Your never to old to have a passion. No point bothering with anyone who says your too old for anime. Why should you lose out because of someone elses ignorance?

"I am more successful economically and socially in life than you despite being 18"

People who say "your too old" have some sort of a superior mindset. You have to, instead, be better than them, while being a hardcore anime/manga fan.

Tbh, I think that Animations in general is incredible. Even now, as an adult I'm finding new ways to enjoy the cartoons, & Anime I've seen, or have yet to see. Anime shouldn't be looked at as something only kids should like. Joking aside, when I'm faced with this question I usually use Ghibli movies as examples.



These movies tend to get the message across that Anime can have something for anyone, at any age.
I think of Ghibli movies as kind of in a realm of their own when it comes to animation. They are not American films but they sometimes get treated like American films when they are released in North America. They are not really overtly mature in their content and most have a design that are generally meant to appear to younger viewers. And they have always been seen as the Japanese animation for people who don't like Japanese animation. Miyazaki himself never really likes it when people associate his movies with any other types of anime. That's why his movies look the way they do, just Western-looking enough while still heavily painted with Japanese mythology and traditional symbolism. But I get annoyed at the people who are interested in discovering about anime (ones with the impression that it's all hentai and kiddy Pokemon stuff), and the default recommendation is Ghibli and Miyazaki. There is really so much more to anime that's not hentai and kiddy Pokemon stuff, if given a little bit more effort and not automatically resorting to Ghibli, so that's why I always avoid it when suggesting anime to newcomers.

Well then if they know about hentai, then surely whether or not anime is for children wouldn't be a question!

I'd probably just laugh at someone telling me that I'm too old for anime and then go and watch it proudly.

I'm an adult now, I can buy my own insurance and everything.

people will always judge the things you like, some things more then others. Just keep your middle finger raised up high and know who the people are that you have to keep your hobby hidden from.

I tell them I was watching anime before they were born and it will still be around after they die.
