At what age did you grow out of anime?

In 2016 I began to grow out of anime, it was soon after the release of "Kimi no na wa" aka "Your Name". It was immediately declared by "Anime Critics" as a cinematic masterpiece. I realized that the last Studio Ghibli movie came out in 2014, there hasn't been anything close to it's quality since. Isao Takahata has died and Miyazaki is probably never gonna make another film and I think he has given up hope on anime also.

TV anime has become full on product otaku trash, you can't even look beyond the popular trash anymore, its ALL popular trash now. Once I moved on from anime I understood that Studio Ghibli were the only reason anime had any artistic integrity. There is nothing anymore and anime has become completely devoid of any artistic innovation. There is no room for investment in originality or quality because anime fans have such incredibly awful taste.

Its time to grow out of anime, stop watching it and move on to literature, theater or cinema. My life drastically improved once I grew up and stopped watching anime.

I don't really understand why anyone would watch anime when the agricultural subgenre is so underdeveloped/nonexistent

About 12/13, when I stopped watching Pokemon/Digimon.

Did watch the full Pokemon first series on a 16 hour bus trip in Australia aged 22 though, for err nostalgia.

if your animes entire plot is a bunch of schoolgirls and softcore erotism you might aswell hit your head against the wall for the duration of the episode and report yourself to the police for being a closet pedophile

I remember getting into anime just so I could get closer to some Asian cutie in class. Eventually, we went our separate ways so then I stopped watching all together, her leaving me made me realise how much of a human waste I had become and needed to do something productive with my life so I got into weight lifting and gyming. I was about 12 when I started and stopped watching anime when I was 13 years old. I still occasionally watch JoJo's Bizarre Adventure from time to time but other than that I don't really care too much for anime.

wtzgraveyard of fireflies and some studio ghibli movies dont count as anime on the virtue that they're good

Studio Ghibli don't count. Every single movie they have made has been quality. Isao Takahata in particular made three of the greatest movies ever made Grave of the Fireflies, Only Yesterday and most of all The Tale of the Princess Kaguya which I wish more people would watch. He made it while he was dying and its basically about him accepting his impending death.
