Why can't 15 years old girls sounds like 15 years old girls in english instead of a 7 year old? It imitates the pitch which is not a smart move? I realise Japan has this sort of dumb way of making it sound cute as a fetish or something but we shouldn't stoop to that level. Say what you want about 4kids but they atleast made women sound like women or girls for that matter. In their age. Like i would rather have a stereotypically teenage voice than it being like a 7 year old speaking. Just saying.

They should learn from My Little Pony, you wanna hug them but their voice is a voice!

It depends on what kind of shows you watch. I also don't like it when they sound too young but I there aren't that many Animes I like with that kind of voices. I don't have this problem with any of the shows I watch this season.

No cartoon characters sound like someone's voice you could hear in real life. They're theatrics meant to prey on fantastic desires. In any case it is too cartoon like to be taken seriously, I agree.

There's your problem. Don't watch the dubs, and get over how the raws with subs sound.

It's a cartoon; why does it have to resemble reality?

It's not that they sound like an arbitrary pre-teen age value; it's that they don't sound like his arbitrary impression of an adult voice.

I know someone like that, too. Also, recently found a youtuber that has such a speaking voice.

Also, the funny thing is, that they don't sound like children's voices; they sound like adults with higher pitched voices. Mostly because of their expanded vocabulary/children don't actually sound like that(they sound higher pitched in a different way, etc.).

Anime is anime! Realistic anime are sometimes the Seinen adaptations, like the current hit 91Days, or other series like Berserk. As of the voices, the japanese girls have these kind of voices. For them, our girls sound like 30 years old. Also, they have different standards for cute, or sexy or romantic. Romance anime are the most unrealistic ones, like Nisekoi, or Suzuka, or Kimi no Iru Machi and other anime. Sports manga are the ones that are closer to the truth, but series like Slam Dunk, not like Kuroko no Basuke. But, you should stop trying to find realistic moments or scenes, especially since Anime are drawn pictures of the creator's world and viewpoint. But there are some anime that are cool and also realistic, like Aoi Bungaku Series!

Your first mistake was expecting anime to be realistic.

I agree with most that anime shouldn't be realistic but there IS some realism that is needed for viewers to sympathize with characters and such. But I can definitely admit that a couple anime's have lost me with their lack of realism but I find that the art style is the biggest factor for me on deciding if realism is good or not.

Depending on the artist a 15 year old boy who looks like a professional bodybuilder can either work well or just look really odd.

Edit: Also almost every anime girl between the ages of 14-16 being hyper sexualized (if that makes sense) makes me a little uncomfortable.

Most adult women that I have heard in dubs sound like adult women. I'm not sure what type of shows you're watching, man.
