haha whew glad to see im not the only old person here (im not that old anyway, only 27) haha :)
I will be 44 tomorrow.
So, I just turned 28 two days ago, but I'm still an "otaku" and will probably never stop being one. I go to conventions, cosplay, order boxes of Japanese goodies, watch anime, watch k/j-dramas, speak random Japanese and Korean (sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing it, much to the irritation of others LOL), listen to K-pop and J-rock, read mangas, etc. Still, I know people who are so much more "hardcore" than I am and are even older. Never stop doing what you love. You're not just watching "cartoons" you're learning about a culture, a language, and sometimes a history (depending on what you're watching). Plus, you're learning about so much more: people, interactions, relationships, teamwork, persistence, true real-life values, etc. Don't let people make you think that anime is just for kids, 'cause it's not and in many cases it's not even "kid" appropriate. I really don't know how people ever got the idea that anime was something for kids... Besides, then you find yourself in a place like this and you get to meet people from all over the world and get to be a part of a true community, with people who love you for who you are and accept you and support you. Why would anyone ever want to give any of this up?

and pour so much light into everything you touch,
the universe will have to create brighter stars

I will be turning 24 in May, and have no intention of leaving the anime scene anytime soon. There is a lot of negative stipulations about it I have noticed, but 99% of the people who judge have never even seen anime or manga in their life *cough, cough, my parents, cough*. And the majority of anime is much better than the stuff they play on television these days anyway. As Koryuu so aptly put it: you are learning so much just by watching anime. As long as you don't let it interfere with your day to day life and your responsibilities, there is no age limit for anime.
I'm 22 and almost had a girlfriend since birth :(
Hello~ I'm 21 and still an otaku. Ain't stopping :P dont let your friends tell you ****, they dont know what they are missing.
I'm 24, and will never stop being an otaku. Never ever. I mean, without us Japanophiles, we wouldn't have things like OPM season 2! Or Overwatch!
