Child's Play


I’m always surprised by how young the main characters are supposed to be in animes and managas. Naruto is 13? Ash (from Pokemon) is 10? What?

It leads to some funny discussions on the internet when people who are usually into anime tries to figure out how old characters from western animations/games/whatever are. Too many seem to think that Sniper from TF2 http://www.teamfortress.com/sniper.htm is in his 20’s. :XD:

As a wise Japanese man once said, “If you haven’t saved the world at the age of 14, you’re just not trying”

There is some kind of resemblance between sister Denmark and Chistiania, isn't there? If I look too carelessly I can't tell them apart.

Uh, CLEARLY, Sniper is in his late 20's.

This is not an anime-exclusive thing...plenty of western media have ridiculously young protagonists when they start out: Harry Potter (11), Percy Jackson (12).

They are almost exactly like how you portrayed it: Harry Potter was "sent away" at 11 and finished saving the world at 17, while Percy Jackson did it at 12/16.
