It’s about 18
Lets face it there is a lot of young people blogging anime but I’m curious if that reflects the general audience of anime watchers. When I say young I am talking about 15-19 this age group encompasses a large portion of the blogging community and as stupid as this sounds they also form the largest portion of new blogs or blogs which tend to die out with in a year or so.
I always though the target age group of most anime was about 15-25 but it seems most of the new bloggers are always younger then 20. Is it strange for someone 25 years or older to start blogging about anime? Are old people not tech savvy enough or is it simply because they have other time commitments which makes blogging impossible because I know the average age of an anime fan is older then 18. Before you say anything I do know that a lot of bloggers are over 20 or even over 25 and to be honest they are the ones which I still expect to be talking to in a year or more from now. They are also the ones with well establish blogs going on three, five and ever seven or more years.
So the real thing I am trying to get at is when is too old to watch and enjoy anime? Is there even an age limit because personally I don’t see anything wrong with a 40 year old watching anime. I myself expect I’ll be watching anime at that stage in my life but I’m sure I’ll still be watching less anime then I do now. Maybe the whole thing is genre based and at some point it becomes too hard to associate with the high school student casts plaguing 90% of anime. But who am I to say, I’m not a student anymore but i’m certainly not old enough to not be able to relate to high school students in some way or another especially the older ones that may be more mature than most adults.
