    Default Animation Age Ghetto

    the animation age ghettto, in layman's terms, is the belief that all animation is for children (and children only). i believe that we need to discuss why this is so and what can be done to fight the problem.(if this has been done before tell me and ill delete the thread).

    How is finding animation to be for children a problem, and why does it need fixing?

    What's worse is the idea that cartoons are for children. What's wrong with being amusing by simple things?

    Spongebob is for everyone. Whoever hates it has no soul, child or adult.
    Most cartoons (excluding anime) are aimed at the kid - young adult range. But I disagree that its for children only but don't see how what other people think poses such a big problem (half my school thought anime = hentai - used to get weird looks all the time since I was a well known anime fan).

    ^First, guess I have no soul. I can't stand him. I find him to be incredibly annoying. Second, what about something like the Simpsons? It's full of things like sexual innuendos. Or better yet, South Park which is chalked full of swearing and blatant sexist jokes.

    Spongebob apparently has some innuendo in it; the sort of stuff that kids wouldn't get but teens would and find funny. Is why I watch it.

    Also people who think 'cartoons are not for adults' has no life. They obviously assume because it's an animation - because it's not real actors acting in reality - that it's automatically aimed at 8-year-olds. These guys have never watched Futurama, obviously, or stuff like South Park and the Simpsons.

    I would automatically recommend these people watch the Boondocks, and then come back to me saying cartoons are for kids. Or Drawn Together .... maybe both. >_>

    @Ranshiin There is, but still doesn't change the fact I find him annoying as hell. And Wish I got to see more of Drawn Together. When it first aired my parents would have killed me if they found out I was watching it so I could only occasionally sneak episodes.

    The thing is; most of these people are blatant hypocrites. as teens and adults they will openly admit to liking south park and the fact that its animated, for the most part this state of mind applys to anime (all anime).

    That's just it, we're all hypocrites in some way. Anyone who says otherwise is lying or stupid. We've all done hypocritical things in the past and chances are we'll do them in the future. It's not going to change. I say just let them be. Humans have a tendency to be stubboner then a mule. This really is a non debate as everyone here is going to give the same opinion. If you want to discuss this I suggest doing so at a non specialized forum. You'll get better results there.

    Because anime is clearly different from western animation. Anyone new to it might experience culture shock, depending on the anime.
    I was indulged in the world of disney movies and afternoon shows. The first time I saw anime, I was intrigued by it (it was sailor moon). Then again.. I was a young teen passing puberty and the whole magical girl "transformation" thing....

    Well back to my point, people that think anime is childish probably never gave it a chance.

    Haha I think every Western kid's first anime was Sailor Moon; hell, it was mentioned in that one song "One Week" or something.

    Anyways ... the question regarding "Why do adults assume anime is for kids because it's animated?" has been answered sooooooooo many times. It's simple, the answer: Those people are idiots, and have obviously never watched Elfen Lied or something like that. :P

    We all enjoy our own things in life. I suppose I could ask the same question of the guy who enjoys collecting music records or the girl who likes to go hike - "It's immature - why do you do that?" Sure, some things hold more value than others, but that's normally not a reason why we indulge in the things we do. An even better argument is that everyone always knows whats best for the person next to them, but not for themselves.
