Why do most animations make 16, 17, and 18 year olds look attractive?

This was kind of done in some Disney films, and a majority of Japanese anime. Granted, there are teenage characters in most work of fiction, but some artists and animators tend to give them appealing looks, and even some voluptuous figures. That doesn't seem right, does it? So why give teenage characters the mature looks of adults when that's not entirely so?

    Most likely because this age group contains their main customers.

  • It's to attract both young and older audiences. The way the characters are animated is to give adults more of a reason to watch as it is themed slightly towards them with the more risque take on a teenager. Someone who is younger will not see what the adult is seeing as they are still developing and to put it blunt they are still innocent. Obviously this depends who brings up the child and what they are allowed to watch so they could spot all the adult references or the more risque characters will a short skirt or a big chest for example.

    • Bizarre, they are fictitious characters. There is also the unhealthy obsession aspect with anime fans and their 'waifus'. Obviously if it's in jest then you can laugh about it with friends but when they take it seriously then that's a whole different story.

    Because teenagers are generally cuter than adults.
