>>136420300 >>136420392 This is why when anons hit a certain age they play more games, read more manga, and watch less chinese cartoons. Many anons with significant power level rehydrate their knowledge by treating animu like a football match, but instead of watching the actual match, they read summaries and analysis in sports papers the day after.
>>136420005 >Most of the times the MC is a 14-18 year old
Like some anons said, it's because most anime viewers are teens.
But even the adults like teens MCs in Japan: when you reach adulthood you have obligations you don't have as a teen. This is why they like teens MCs: to remember the good old days. at least it was what some anon said months ago
>>136422376 >High school is just easier to base a story around That's just lazy. Picture Kirito as a 23-year old salaryman that gets trapped in an MMO. The intro episodes are filled with him struggling between the terror of getting fired from his job for not showing up and evicted from his apartment because (since he's stuck in a game) he can't pay rent. Overlap that with the terror of trying to stay alive in a murder-game. Overlap that with the desire to stay in the game because it's an escape from the responsibilities that go around your neck like a boat anchor when you become an independent adult. Overlap that with the worry that his real-world girlfriend will move on, and stack that with his growing attraction to Asuna . Is he cheating? is he giving up hope in returning to the real world by falling for this girl?
He, as a character, gets infinitely more interesting if he were an adult.
Instead we get HUEHUEHUEHUE I DON'T WANT TO FUCK MY COUSIN WHO WANTS TO FUCK ME HUEHUEHUEHUE
Also most of the MCs over 20 are some ''looser otaku'' like your OP pic , ''writer/artist wannabes'' etc. varying number of shit tier professions because authors can't do research to learn anything other than that to use as background for their characters and keep it interesting thus they chose the one background that they can completely disregard.
For MCs who are 14-17 it's also like that but instead of NEET or someone who ''lost at life'' it's just high-school students.
The authors generally lack creativity. That's why shit like cooking manga and fantasy settings have begun to be popular these days because people had enough.
It's called seinen, and there's plenty of it. While it means that it's technically the demographic shifting from 10-18 (shounen) to 18-40, that means that the MC will most likely end up somewhere in that age range.

>>136424592 yes, but unlike most anime characters, he grew up over the course of the show. Dragon Ball Z starts with him 23, already married and raising a son. It also progresses the characters aging instead of having five seasons of him being 15, then five seasons him being 25.
>>136424747 For a lot of people, they start watching in Highschool and once they hit college, they have less time for it and eventually drop it to do more productive things like work or go to parties. Most of us haven't had a social life though, and don't have the call of other duties besides the occasional part time job
>>136424660 I think he meant before the attack, since before them he was just a looser otaku whoi just used the JDSF as a means to fund his hobbys. Most mcs start out as looser otaku and then have a harem of girls lusting after them. It makes it easier for the audience to relate and self insert.
