Just forget the words and sing along

Today's topic for discussion:

Mr. Anderson, on the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion: "Stuff like Evangelion is written for the same age as TV drama is, or South Park. And it demands a mature audience."

Most of my students, on ANY anime program I'd bring up: Ranma 1/2, Slayers, Bubble Gum Crisis, Akira, etc.: "You know, it's all meant for kids."

The question: What differences must lie between two cultures for one to view something as being for "a mature audience" and the other to view it as being "meant for kids?"
