I'm 47 and have been watching anime fairly regularly since the fan-sub VHS days of the late '80s. My fiancee is 50. She got her first dose about 2 years ago - starting with some of my recommendations - and now shares my interest in it. I certainly don't like every anime series or movie I watch, but I make a point to try as many shows as possible. Just like any recreational activity, not everything is going to float your boat. However, if you are a fan of animation, there is surely an anime offering (or three) out there that you will enjoy.
