So I thought I could broaden this topic by letting people ask their own questions. But it has to start with "At What Age.....?"
Answer questions, Discuss Questions, Ask your own.
What made me think of it was this.

I got caught at work today watching anime (Azumanga Daioh in case you were wondering). One of my co-workers asked "Aren't you too old to be watching cartoons?" I said if I was he should just kill me now. So I know people of all ages enjoy anime/cartoons. But "At What Age are you surprised someone is into anime?"

And Go

Since I personally know a 62-year old man--my dad--who thoroughly enjoys watching anime, my answer would be "None."

Other than Deadliest Catch (and NFL, of course), there isn't a single damn thing on TV today that I would watch over Azumanga Daioh. I can watch Cop Show XLII, or Idiot Sitcom MMLXI, or Sex-in-the-City Clone XXI, and the only thing it would do is lower my IQ as my brain cells die. Honestly, I find Osaka more funny and entertaining that Stephen Colbert and/or Jon Stewart--Osaka's stupid, but she's not stupid and annoying.

My response to "Aren't you a little old to be watching cartoons?" would be "Aren't you a little young to be my mother?"

Yeah, I watch anime on my laptop at work all the time...the only problem with that response is most of my coworkers aren't too young to be my mother, haha.

hmm.. Well, i don't think i'd be surprised to see someone watching anime, no matter what their age. if it's something you enjoy it's something you enjoy, nobody has any right to criticize that. :x

Act your age and it's understandable. I won't be annoyed if some 13yr old is squealing at the anime they're watching, but I would be if it's some 40 year old.

You can say the same about all the anime clone series out there. Shy, intelligent guy moves to a huge city and finds a shy, yet intimidating girl and they get romantically involved as he lives in an all girl dorm that his grandma owns.

edit: It's a broad generalization on both of our sides.

So are your saying that if your older you can't get excited about watching anime? You just have to sit there like a statue and pretend that your not enjoying?

LOL.....I have no idea what yiff means...and I'm not sure I want to know.
The people I work with know that I'm into video games and anime, I show off my Acen pic to them (I have my PSP to play on breaks).
To some people anime is cartoons and nothing more and can't understand why older people watch it.

and by too early you mean almost noon in chicago, lol.

I dunno...see I understand acting your age and that most "normal" people are going to frown at you for outbursts of emotion, but anime is emotional. Be it a touching love scene, or an outburst of epicness, there is plenty of emotion in anime. Just because something is a cartoon doesn't mean it can't convey human emotions. I think a lot of people fail to understand that because in their mind cartoons = kids. I have a hard time telling someone not to express how they feel no matter what the situation. People are too concerned about what others think these days. So even at work, as long as you are not bothering anybody (and thats the key), if you wanna express how you feel, have at it.

Yeah, I totally agree, FlyingElf. There's a gray area where you're expressing your feelings and "acting your age." Talking about an anime to some coworker and saying something like, "Yeah, I love those characters. <main protagonist> has some hilarious scenes, like in ep <blahblahblah> I can't believe he did <blahblahblah> *laughs*", whereas "AND THEN HE PUNCHED THE GUY INTO THE AIR AND HE WAS LIKE SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE" is what I'm talking about. The latter is the only time I get annoyed D:, but once again, it's my own opinion. I don't watch much anime these days, but the stuff I do watch it pretty emotional. One Piece is by far my favorite anime, and I openly admit that I laugh and cry at scenes with my friends. They find it weird that I can get so emotional over a "cartoon", but that's ok, it's their opinion.

There's sometimes a difference between yiff and yiffing. It can be used as a verb, "to yiff", whereas the noun, "yiff" can have multiple meanings. The stuff you lean over the internets.

I wonder if making a fangirl suppress her incessant squeeing would cause her to physically explode...?

I think I'll go test that theory.

Well, now I've learned that over the internet......oh well to each their own.....

Ok, here's a little twist to my question. When at a con, how old does someone have to be for you to look and say "That persons old (or older) than what I expect to see at a con."? And does the age change if that person is in cosplay?

I don't think so. Sure, it might seem unusual to see a 62 year old guy at a con, but it does happen. (I met a guy about that age, if not older, who was cosplaying as Gim from Lodoss War. Certainly an older guy with a real gray beard looks better than a 16 year old kid with a fake beard trying to pull that off.)

Tano, I see your point and I agree with you on the squeeing. That is inappropriate. However, I think there is a lot more variety even within the harem genre you describe than the crap that is on TV. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I'd rather see Tenchi or Keitaro trying to survive their respective female lunatic asylums than listen to the same old canned jokes and disgusting sexual innuendos on sitcoms. I'm not one of these types that think anime is better because it's from Japan, or that it's naturally superior, or that it's perfect. It's more like a race to the bottom, and American primetime TV reached rock bottom years ago.

At least with anime there's a chance of seeing something new and different, and I can generally tell that I'm not going to be insulted or grossed out, which is what the average episode of Family Guy does to me.

Not to me. It's just like Disneyland--if that's what you knew since your youth (or even just recently) and that's what you love, then you're not too old to do it as long as you still love to.

My first year at ACen, I saw an elderly woman (like at least 60 years old) cosplaying Sakura Kinomoto from Cardcaptor Sakura. Now obviously this isn't one of your classics from the early days of anime, but she obviously loved cosplay, Sakura, and the outfit she wore to the point that she dressed the part. Well, that and her granddaughter was cosplaying Tomoyo Daidouji and her grandson was Syaoran Li. It was endearing--she watched the show with her grandkids, they all loved it, and when her granddaughter asked for her help to make a costume for the convention, they got to sew together!

Of course, I'm sure there were people who thought she was too old to cosplay, attend a convention, or watch anime, but she obviously was having fun, especially spending time with her grandkids doing something they all enjoyed.

Hmm.. I'd say if someone looks really old and such I'll think it's a tiny bit unusual, but then i'd think it would be cool at the same time, especially if they're having fun and or cosplaying.

I don't think one can be too old to watch anime, because anime has such broad subject matter. There are ones clearly made for adults, some clearly for kids, and some that can go either way. I don't understand why everything animated has to be made for kids. Is it not mature just because it's a different medium?
I've seen middle age and up cosplayers at ACEN, although I've never run into a senior citizen. Even if I did I'd be thinking "Wow, I wanna cosplay when I'm old and gray."

I agree. I dont think anyone can ever be to old to watch Anime. The rare occasions I watch it, my dad watches it with me, and he just hit 51. Heck he used to record episodes of Dragonball Z at one point in time lol

You're only as young as you feel. Corny but I believe in that phrase!
Now once I'm 60-70, will I be dressing up as 15 or 16 year old characters, like I'm doing now?
No, probably not.
However, there's plenty of adults in series and older people as well to dress as.
Don't let age stop you from doing the things that you enjoy. :)

My friends dad cosplayed as Tessai while she was captain Mom and her brother was a hollow D;
I wish my dad would cosplay with me
Not on his life, though XD

I'm not surprised that someone 30 and over enjoys something like GITS, but when I see 33 yr olds raving about how awesome Naruto is...
This is defintely the most immature generation of people.
Not that maturity is super important but still...

And even @ 13, I found stuff like Bleach pretty cheesy and childish, so the large number of college aged ppl that are diehard about it is pretty shocking. I mean you can enjoy shows like that and Inu Yasha,but acknowledge that those series are primarily aimed at preteens and it's not ADULT because it has gore and violence in it.

I'm never surprised, cartoons are meant to be enjoyed by people of all ages. Thats why there are some many genres and what not.
