    I actually have a tee shirt from Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. It has a picture of blue on it and says "Twinkle twinkle little bat, how I wonder is a cat."

    Of course I also still like Sanrio characters, and am a big child like most ENFPs. When I tell people my real age they're like,"um....really?" Ha.

    No, but that question is alarming to say the least.

    Anime is just one of many mediums through which a story can be told. And these stories range drastically in genre; from extremely mature and philosophical/thought provoking works of art to fanservice laden giant-eyed colored hair batshit insane awesomeness that appeals to hard-core Otakus.

    Also, there are levels of anime specificallt targeted towards certain audiences: shonen if often targets towards a somehwat young male demographic (ages 6 - 18 in general) while seinen is often targeted to adults (ages 16 - 50 in general). The same can be said for women demographics (shojo and josei respectivally).

    Then you have ecchi and hentai which is target towards the perveted male demographic.

    I love ecchi and hentai.

    Besides that, some are just retellings of classic stories. Not to mention, can be innovative in their art style.. like "Gankutsuou" uses a lot of layering that's pretty cool and something I've only seen in some new digital painting styles. And it's not some adolescent "hero" story, if you know the Count of Monte Cristo.

    Trolling..? It's a valid question.

    While satire in cartoons has managed to bridge the gap in the form of Family Guy, South Park, The Simpsons, Drawn Together etc whose primary aim is an adult demographic. There are more certainly. Then I'd wonder at the audience for Anime which do have a mature audience in mind more often.

    Now the correlation here would imply whether that happens to be a viewing instrument in a persons lives that takes over their lives and is larger than life. Whereby their sense of reality is warped because of the addiction to anime. The answer is simple, everything in moderation. There are an abundance of extremes, much like computer gaming, when is the cut off for playing computer games. You'll find adults tend to be entertained by both animation and games and when it turns into the focal point. Then yes psychologically speaking there is an issue of addiction that would needs be addressed. Everything in moderation I suppose, because there is something that is being filled by such media, and it is a media of entertainment as much as the interface between viewing films and tv series alike. When you are in it, in the whole spending more time viewing said programs then yes there is a trance here. and the trance is induced by a release of stress and escapism from that which is real to the realm of that which is disproportionate to reality.
    I think there is more to it than addiction. Think about it. Why would an average 80 year -old watch "Dora The Explorer" and enjoy it? (aside from him reminiscing the "good times".)

    Added to that, Is he still "average"?

    It depends on which shows, and how often they watch it. Some seem weirder than others, like Teletubbies and Dora the Explorer.

    I don't think you can get too old to watch Anime every once in a while, but you are too old to be obsessed with it, watching it all the time, and buying all the paraphernalia after the age of... 25 or 30?

    But..but...nendoroids are so much fun! http://theotakukid.com/2010/05/nendoroid-photography/

    Anyway, slightly related question. How old is too old to read comics and watch movies based on comics?

    If Walt Disney was still alive, he'd probably wonder the same thing.

    Righto, I think I'll find out what John Lasseter's advice is on the subject and take it.
