What's up, I am 15 and I've been watching anime for two years now, alot... I know poor to badass animes. Honestly if i hadn't watched anime i would be a different person right now, not in a good way. Anime shows you the world and teaches you their language if you don't know japanese! There are a lot more people out there that watch or read manga then you think. And i read manga to, i watch anime more but the manga are normally more funny. So people out there that are getting ready to give up anime or manga, well... You might wanna reconsider. Life is full of suprises.
