It seems that a lot of Japanese cartoons (as I prefer to call so-called anime due to the constant debates over the word's definition) focus on characters under the age of eighteen, trying to relate to people of a similar age. A lot of those tend to be people in their late school years, likely because Japanese students need to relate to cartoons to calm themselves of their overly worked minds. I know that young ones ought to have characters with which to relate, but there seems to be a severe lack of Japanese animation about adults and exploring the adult experience. (It might have to do with a lack of support or little with which to work in their lifestyles.) That is not to say that they do not exist; some very popular Japanese movies and shows (in Japan, anyway) do this. However, ignoring these, the number of shows in this genre is lacking. Does anyone else notice this? Does anyone else want shows of this genre?
