I'm 17, but I tend to be a lot more familiar with older stuff than the more
current generation of anime. Probably because I got started with anime watching
80's OVAs that I had rented from my local Tower Video, back around '95 or so.

To me the grittier stuff like VOTOMs or Bubblegum Crisis is a lot more
interesting than the recent stuff. Go fig.
