I wouldn't even hear the "for anime" bit. As soon as the words "too old" crossed their lips, I would beat them viciously and repeatedly with whatever object I had to hand.

Probably in my most immature voice possible, tell them they are "too old" for me to talk to anymore..

In all honesty, I wouldn't be offended that much. The person saying the comment most likely has no idea what anime is really like, and simply thinks all animation is the same in terms of silliness or age-level.

I would probably respond by asking if that person has watched any anime. If s/he says no, I would recommend for them to watch some before making quick, snap judgments. I would then have to give them an anime that breaks the stereotype in their mind about anime being for children, so something a bit deeper but also enjoyable.

Remember that one kid from primary school who always had to announce how much more mature they were than everyone else in an effort to gain their peers' admiration? Don't be that kid in adulthood. Few actually liked that kid, and fewer still like adults who act like that kid.

art is made by human beings, and if it's well done and some thought or feeling has been put into it, there's bound to be something to connect to or learn from or enjoy in it.
regardless if it's anime, zombie flicks, techno, metal, literature, fantasy novels, whatever.

anime gets a bad rap because most of it's shit, the same way metal gets a bad rap because most of it's shit and pop gets a bad rap and TV shows get a ...... and you can go on and on. you have to look for great ARTISTS, they are what make things good. the genre it is in, or the format, don't matter.

you also , especially with anime, have to give it a chance, because if you get turned off at the first absurd situation (Nisekoi) or the first failed joke (Gintama) or the fact that it's all about super powers and character tics (Fairy Tail) you will miss the very enjoyable good points they do have (Comedy+Romance, Comedy+Depth, and Character development respectively)

that being said, if you dont want to be made fun of, dont do things that get you made fun of. it's cool if you're a guy that likes to wear skirts, but if you go out in public wearing a skirt, and they don't appreciate it, someone is bound to say something snide to you. i'm not saying hide what you like, but if people think anime is for kids, and you're a 30-year old man like me hovering aroudn the manga section, you can't be shocked when someone simply mouths what the culture expects. that doesn't mean you have to take it to heart though either. opinions are like giant robots, everyone has one. (if you're in an anime, that is.)

Meh. It really depends on what kind of show. Some are obviously childish, but hey at the end of the day just watch what you want, or instead roam the forums because you lost interest and are waiting for Spring's anime to roll around.

At my age I do get that a lot, Mostly from my own age group.
The guys bring up watching porn all the time...
I then showed them adult anime "Hentai".
The "to old for cartoons" shit went away.
These guys kept coming over to watch hentai and finally I had to put a stop to it.
GO WATCH HENTAI ON YOUR OWN COMPUTER!!
