I'm 26 but I feel much younger.
The only thing where I recognize that I'm getting older: there is less time for watching anime.
For the grey hair: I like them. And keep them.

Anywho, my claim to oldness is that my first game console was the Atari 7800.

My claim to fame/oldness is having the commodore 64/128 as my first gaming system .-. damn i loved that joystick not to mention those old games. ahh so much nostalgia~
anyone else remember having regular tv channels and a special UHF? section?( some different frequency / not cable)

@ asunder I remember the cable box, you had to push the button to which channel you wanted to watch. The only channels that I watched growing up was the Disney channel and Nickalodeon. My fave show on Nick was "You Can't Do That on Television."

@ edsgirl I'm sure the kids down the street from you would have to Wiki the history of sliming.

Who else remembers shows that are now in the annuals of Wiki?

I just finished doing one of those age polls here and I added a post saying how funny I found it to be putting my little "dot" in the 25+ category when I am (brace yourselves, you youngsters!) fifty years old!!! And the other post I added tonight was a favorite movie quote which was from "The Big Chill", and I noted then that that post and everything I DO on this forum ends up making me feel so damn OLD! Thing is, I can't decide if I feel like all good and noble about it, or just plain depressed.... everybody has been really very nice to me... I get the feeling the really young ones think I am sort of "cute"... does this mean I REALLY am sliding headlong into geezerdom? oh no, mr. bill..................

I probably came later to anime than any of you -- I discovered FMA last year at the hands of my 27-year-old daughter, and got hooked - but now I am making up for lost time (my husband thinks I have lost my mind.) I have time to pursue this interest because I am unfortunately on disability, having lost my beloved library job to health problems ten years ago this fall. I have to find ways to keep my mind occupied or I go crazy, and anime is my newest interest. It's fascinating stuff, especially if you know anything about Japanese culture.

Anyway, I got all excited when I saw this thread tonight -- I thought "FINALLY -- I'll find the others on this board who are in my age range! But alas, it looks like I still get the geezer prize, by a long shot!! Oh well -- getting old may suck, but it does beat the one alternative...

For the record, Molecular Alchemist, it's not a problem when you forget how old you are, only when you forget WHO you are!

And, Asunder, I can top you, when I think really hard back to my earliest memories, I can remember a small roundish B/W TV that only got three VHF stations and no UHF.

peace, y'all

fmf

p.s. did anyone else see all those new pilots on Adult Swim last Sunday? Is it just me, or were most of them well and truly dreadful? Oy!

Permission to break wind in this forum madam or sir. Just joking.

I'm 25 going on 26 this august 17, 2007, so I guess I'm an old fart. LOL. Well maybe not THAT old. I don't have gray hair yet. laugh.gif

I am so glad I found this thread!! I was feeling a bit tlike that frizzled old man in the park that just sits on the bench and stares.....We have discussions at work about our favorite shows....it passes the time. My younger work mates were quite suprised that I even knew what anime was, much less that I was a fan. I was enjoying anime when anime wasnt cool, I tell them. (Gigantor, Speed Racer, etc.)

I'm freakingly old of 26 turning 27. Though if you were to look at me, you wouldn't guess it and put me around 18 or so. tongue.gif Sometime I feel old and wonder if I actually grow up. Or am I still just a kid with responsibilities? Probably the second one most of the time. But hey, I guess if you're still a kid at heart but can do lots of grown up things, that's all good. happy.gif

Hello my fellow oldies....

By the looks of things I'm up there with the oldest. 29 in a week and a bit, luckily I've converted my 34 year old other half into Anime, so I now know one person older than me. I thought I would find solace in finding other older cartoon watches (Esp FMA). Appears we are a far and few between rare breed.... blink.gif

I'm in Australia, Melb and a big FMA fan. Australia's Anime is very limited and there isn't much around by way of merchandise, comics etc.

Was directed to the oldies section after posting in the meet the noobies bit. I'm getting a FMA half sleeve done the day after I turn 29, so keep an eye on the "I'm getting/have a FMA tattoo" section.

Any aussies reading this, watch Wipeout tomorrow night and keep a look out for me.

I remember, Gigantor, the Atari, the Commodore 64 & the Table Top arcade machines with frogger, space invaders & Pacman. Heck I remember when Pacman was the best game going around.

Kursed.

@Kursed - I think our resident librarian (retired ^^) fullmetalfemme is the oldest "young at heart" member I know of on our board. She has a daughter who is about your age. happy.gif
FMA is one of the anime/manga I know that are enjoyed by fans with a wide range of age and nationality, and it's nice to see posters from around the world and of many ages on our board. And BTW, arche-san (ἀρχή) has a beautiful 8 years old daughter, so I think he might be around your age also. biggrin.gif

I'm currently 26.

I think there are a lot of anime fans over the age of 25. I just think you'll probably not find as many on forums because people who are in that stage of life generally have less time to be on them.
