Which is kinda stupid in a way. I don't want 80 year old heroes piloting
Gundams, but I don't want 8 year olds piloting Gundams either. I like
characters anywhere from 15-30 for the ace MS and Gundam pilots, but I like
any age really, as long as the character's have substance.

Kids need their entertainment forms to show that there are pyschopath's, but
that they need help or that good guys aren't invincible, etc., etc., but
without turning the kid away or making them paranoid. Kids deserve
intelligent cartoons too, I wish companies would realize this. A kids show
should have a, moral at the end of the story or teach a lesson, without
draining away the shows fun and entertainment value.
Meaning in action cartoons.

Isn't that what Bay Watch is for? ^_^

I agree, a show/anime, etc., gets boring if it is ultra mature and gritty,
though. I like that, but not ultra mature and gritty, most things that are
done that way get too realistic. I mean, you can go over board with way out
there stuff or way realistic stuff.
