from my personal point of view, i think there is no age limit when it comes to watching anime. its ok to watch anime at any age as long as one enjoys it.

i think most of us would share the same sentiments since we all like to watch anime. however i am just wondering what would be the society's point of view?

Same as yours, thought I myself believe that in a few years my interest will fall away and not watch anything any more, thus slowly dragging myself out of this society. There is no age limit to watching anime, but there is an interest limit.

I personally don't understand why there would be an age limit to it. If you like watching anime then you should watch anime and if you like reading manga then you should read manga. People can say and think whatever they like, it's their problem. It's like telling someone who loves skateboarding to stop skateboarding because they can get hurt, at least in my opinion.

I can't speak for society as a whole but some of my friends think I'm a bit too old for "childish" stuff like anime and manga. I'm 22 by the way.

But honestly...no matter what anyone says I'll never stop watching anime or reading manga, it's one of my biggest passions and I won't let anyone rob that of me.

Anyone above 13 who still watches anime should be ashamed. It's for kids after all!

No such thing. It's just that it's harder to find older people into anime.

You're never too old for anything. If you enjoy doing it, then there's no reason to stop regardless of how old you are .. at least that's what I think.

There is no limit. The anime culture have become widespread and popular only in the last decade around the world, so I'm sure we will see a lot of adults in the future that still watches anime, and I already know a lot of them.

At some points you'll take brakes from anime. Like when you first have kids, or get your first professional job. But those are just set backs.

I don't think there is some limit. I don't want to have kids or so and I'm pretty much looking forward to living alone, so there will be noone to nag me - don't watch anime, you're too old for it! And besides, I look younger than I actually am, so no problem.

Personally I don't believe there should be an age limit what so ever. I've contemplated this before and well it's just stupid to put an age limit on anime. Even society shouldn't. There people who've watched cartoons all their lives and as they get older their taste in cartooons matures like going from Looney Toons to something like Archer.

I feel the same way about anime, you might start out watching something like Dragon Ball or Pokemon, but as you get older your taste just matures and you start watching animes like Ghost in The Shell or Darker Than Black.

It's just stupid to put an age limit on something like this, as long as you enjoy it, watch who cares what "society" thinks of you.

Theoretically there's no age limit for anime but there will come a point in time when you will think some of things you see in anime are childish.

Liking anime isn't physical, it's mental/psychological, and since everyone ages mentally differently, of course there isn't a single universal age for being "too old".

You're "too old" for anime when you start thinking it's childish.

There is no limit, but a lot of people probably stop once they finish college and find a job because they're preoccupied.

I think it tends to slow down with time.
People will watch anime as kids, then as teens, then while their college years..
once they get married (if they do) or have kids (if they do) or find a full time job (if they do) they'll have too many things to do. So your 3 hours of watching anime daily.. has been cut down to 30 minutes of anime every 2 days. You then lose time for anime, and realize it's not worth checking out every anime because you have less time on your hands. So you eventually "stop" although you may still watch every now-and-then.

To people saying anime is for kids.. I don't think you realize the R+ ratings.. I don't think that's for 13 and under. There's a lot of dark anime that would really bother kids, like Elfen Lied.
So really.. if you think 13+ is too old.. you must fail to realize the adult theme'd animes..
seinen anime is targeted for 18-30 year olds.. So I believe your argument that "13+ is too old" really fails.
So if I can say that the adult anime is targetted for 18-30 year olds.. I think 30 is where it's too old.. and where quite a lot of people stop at anime, unless they have a work related to it.

Never too old. My parents love it.

I do not have a huge watched list b/c I am an adult and have to take care of shit. But, I fit it in wherever possible. Perhaps thats added to my long relationship with anime. Though I got obsessed with MMORPG for awhile lol.

If you've got enough concern about other peoples feelings to let them define your own, you should stop watching anime and just let your mom tell you what to do.

The best age to stop watching anime is when you stop having balls.
