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:

I have studied in Japan and Anime is mostly for children, for adults it is mostly taboo. Manga is acceptable but for an adult who loves anime it is kept a secret or could destroy you socially. I had a Japanese friend who loved anime but always kept it secret and when she could finally talk about anime to myself and other foreign friends who had no social taboo against it. You could see this massive weight lift from her shoulders and she was flooded with happiness. Interesting how something that is enjoyed across the globe. Yet in Japan if you were an adult who loves anime having it publicly known could be extremely detrimental to your career and life.

I love how anime is a lot like that. Everyone's a hero.

Although Ash from Pokemon was only 10.

Anime can get pretty confusing sometimes - I've seen characters who look older than they are, and characters who look younger than they are.

In Saint Seiya Omega, Haruto is supposed to be 13 yet he looks like he's in his 20s.
In One Piece, Aokiji is supposed to be 49 yet looks barely 30.
