Watch Corpse Party and then ask that question. Real question is "am I old enough" to watch anime.

I am about to watch Corpse Party now. LOL! Never heard of this anime. But I am about to know about it now.



Great. Drink a bunch of soda and watch it in the middle of the night for maximum effect.

I have Pepsi and some Vodka, I am ready!

Never too for anime. Those type of people are mostly likely unhappy because you find something you enjoy.

Too old? Nah, I have a middle finger to all who would judge me for that
A good motto for that

I've found myself asking this question lately and you know what, everyone else is right. Enjoy what you want. In all honesty the plot lines of the anime I've seen are a lot better than 90% of the regular tv shows out there. It's about the story and the characters and the time you spend with them on their long (sometimes short) crazy journey towards their ultimate goal. If you fun with it, then that's all that matters.

have you ever been from a dysfunctional Family? where your mom and Sister is bipolar and your father is a alcoholic and you got people talking shit all the time. even by text message.

yes, I got problems in my life, and I got No one to speak with. that's why I posted this.

Well lets say you do stop watching because they tell you you are "too old"

Now someone tells you you are eating too much.
You play video games too much
You should take time from work off to have more of a "life"
You should buy more "stylish clothing"

It's a never ending cycle. Do what you enjoy.

Yeah I have, and I know people that have had it worse than people like us and pushed through to live good lives. Don't use your background as an excuse for inaction. If you don't like something in your life, make a plan to change it. If you're lonely, meet people by going to local events and groups, not hoping that one of the random online people you meet will bloom into a real relationship like some overly-sweet story.

If you don't like your environment then change it. People aren't trying to tell you you're too old for anime, but you're too old to be a passive escapist.

Those people are probably the type that spend all their time watching American Idol and shit like that. Haha. I will never be too old. When I'm a grandpa, I'm going to be telling my grandkids about Japanese animation, and Dragon Ball Z, and all the other important things in life.

Some people feel that way about things. Once you get to a certain age you should stop doing certain things and start doing other things that come with getting older. You watch anime, you go to work, and pay your bills it sounds as though you are pretty grounded. Just keep watching anime, because in the end those people aren't paying your bills, so screw them.

i don't see what the problem is, i work a full time job. In Fact, i work for The United States Postal Service in a big P&DC, so i have a good job and i pay my bills just like everyone else.



What you should be asking is, "Am I too old to enjoy life?" Everyone enjoys what they enjoy. There shouldn't be an age limit.

no


You're never too old to enjoy television. Any form of animation, whether is be Western or Japanimation, should be appreciated as an art form, most works aren't even made for children, rather, deep-thinking adults who enjoy a great medium. You shouldn't have to rationalize liking something for yourself, people will have opinions regardless and you just need to do you

you are right.

I Do have plans to move out of the city and buy a house in the country surrounded by trees and nature. but I should stop hiding behind my Job or video games and see if there's any groups or Somethings Nearby I can join. too many people have hurt me over the years including Women and family, so I've been keeping my Anger inside.

regardless of Age, you Are Never too old to talk to Somebody About problems

Yes, I'm too old to be watching Anime. I keep it a secret from everyone. Don't want to be lumped in with all the weird people who seem to always flaunt it.
