Audience.

Women are the biggest consumers of anime in Japan, and they want cute boys. Beta boys are objectively "cuter", so they become mainstream. Anime like Yuri On Ice being smash hits don't help, either.

You wanted to be a giant monkey, a delinquent, a murderer, and so on as a child? You grew up to become the son of the head of your local mafia, a drooling retard, or a guy who fucks his little sister?
>>
>>158659820
I didn't mean literally. As a kid I wanted to be a cool superhero who does something like save the world or have superpowers it something. I grew up to be a random college student with no friends, super powers, or any real excitement going on in my life. The characters on the right are reliable enough where I can self insert as them and live vicariously through them while they do fun but normal things like hang out with friends or go on small adventures.

If MC's ages keep dropping, soon enough protagonists will be babies barely able to talk. Which will suit current anime fanbases intelligence level.

We are close enough of main characters being in middle school, and the most popular manga One Piece is clearly aimed at small children, going as far gigantizing characters to make the small protagonists relatable to them.

No wonder seinen is better.
