  1. I find myself ignoring the “canon” age of the characters and unconsciously rewrite the script in my head. That is my prerogative as an active consumer. Unless the anime rubs my nose in their immaturity, characters are as old as they act.

    Seriously, they’d draw the characters exactly the same if they were ten years older.

    Anime has a real youth fetish. The main part of it is because of the audience and they ARE catering to teen fantasy. But sometimes the fetish becomes too extreme for me, as when it turns into obvious lolicon or shoutacon where the immaturity of the cast is part of the attraction.
