Haha, I should've removed all those weird, old systems. Oh well... I am really surprised that MacOS has such a low showing. And those TempleOS votes are just trolling

I was also a fan or R-rated content since kindergarten, as my mother never gave a shit about age ratings. If that is what counts for "mature", if we go by our genres. Not that I would agree. Devilman is both Shounen and child inappropriate.

(and like calstine, I too have developed a greater tolerance for sexually explicit stuff, and some other things as well, which would make me shocked/flustered, before ...and I was also about 17 when I started)

You have no idea how many people want to talk to God, and/or stick it to the glow-in-the-dark CIA ayys.

I still read a lot of shounen and shoujo. I definitely read more josei and seinen, now. Its not like I didn't read those before, but now I try to actively search for them.

Only the kind of people who glow in the dark would say such sacrilegious things.

I wholeheartedly agree.
Granted, some stuff for older people isn't able to be properly (or at all) appreciated by the young (depends on the "old stuff" and how young the "young" is ...and the individual, to some extent)
...and/or be very much inappropriate for them.
Aside from that, however...
I see the target age/sex/whatever, as the audience that is most likely to appreciate it.
I do not, for the life of me, understand the people who see it as an indication, that no one outside of that, can/should appreciate it.
People who say things like "you can't watch/read/play that! It's for girls!" (or who would treat girls who like "male" stuff, as being unfeminine ...or a lesbian, to add a little homophobia to it) or conclude that something can't be any good, because it's made for kids (and tell you to grow up, if you like it).
Good stuff is good.
Bad stuff is bad.

When I got into manga back then, I was just about old enough to retire, and there was a TON of free manga out there. In among all that, I found those few manga that deal with issues that face everyone of any age, like "Ai Ren" (love and death), and many manga that are apparently about the concerns of young people but are really just as interesting to peope of any generation, like "Strawberry 100%" (what will I do with my life, and who shall I do it with?).
In other words, without knowing it, I was picking those few manga that really could appeal to a very wide age group from among decades of translated shonen.
But now I think I've really found them all. And all the new stuff seems to be endless variations on themes of simple escape (hero transported to another world), or sexy materials which scanlators chicken out of translating halfway through.
Time to move on.

I won't be reading 28 chapters of rurouni kenshin no more; even if there are invariably worse ways to spend a few days
sometimes the difference in reader maturity can vary even when it's the exact same reader
storylines involving family & children hit me way harder now than they did when I read them the first go around
I like female POV stories now because I get surprised much more often, my guesses aren't nearly as accurate
