I wouldn't say I hide it, I just don't need to bring it up. I mean it's like watching english shows, you don't see that many people go like "OMGMGLJKLDJklfjL Thehehehe Omg That show was soo awesome" and talk about shows 24/7, that's called obsessive. Keeping an inner "anime kid" is best choice imo, most outer "anime kids" are extremely weird, and majorly obsessed. Watching anime doesn't define my "real self" or any significant part of it that is.

I don't hide that I like anime, no one really cares if I do or don't. It's not their business; sometimes they do come and ask me why I like it and I just give them my answer. It doesn't affect me really...

To the first poster...I don't really see how it has to do with the way you dress...I love American Eagle and other cute clothes. I'm normal teenage girl after all XD I have a couple of friends just like me. I guess people have this mental image that anime fans all buy clothes from Hottopic or something.

I think you shouldn't hide it, if people at your school don't like it, ignore it. It's not their issue. If they can't accept it, you probably shouldn't be mingling with people that can't accept you.

You know, you're pretty right. All the people I know that were really "in your face" about watching anime were preeeetty weird. Well not just weird, but that's ALL they'd talk about, or all they wanted to talk about. They were the kind to collect and print out 1283920 pictures of their favorite characters, and spend tons of money on plushies. Stick pins all over their bags and stuff at school. Basically make it impossible to miss that they *love* anime (or really *love* Inyuasha, that's what the "weirder" anime girls at my school were into). So yeah, I think it should be like any other hobby. If it comes up, don't hide it, but if it doesn't there's no reason to lay it all out on the table.

Luckily, in high school the majority of my friends liked anime too. They were actually what got me into anime/manga, so I didn't have to "hide" it per say. Ironically enough though, these days I'm WAY more into Asian things they are. While they kind of lost a little interest in anime/manga, (they still like it and enjoy it just not as prominately as they used to) I've expanded from anime/manga to music, dramas, games, celebrities, etc. So a lot of times they're kind of like "... O_o oh." if I mention twdramas or something.

I'd say the person I know that "gets it" the least for me, would be my sister or my mom. I don't think they understand why someone would rather read subtitles when you could just watch something in English, and considering the Taiwanese aren't a very widely known/heard about group of people, saying I'm watching a Taiwanese television series is like saying I'm watching an Nigerian television series XD. It's all kind of on the same level to them.

My friends don't really know that I watch anime,just a few know.
But I'm not the kind of person who says it if they don't ask.And if they ask I'll tell them,but most of my friends aren't interested in anime.
