Are you open about liking anime/manga?
Posted 8/19/10
I was just wondering... Because I'm from Iowa, not many people know what it is. I don't LOOK like I'm into that kinda stuff (I don't wear dark clothing, stuff from Hot Topic, written on Converse-- I know that is a COMPLETE stereotype-- I'm actually kinda preppy) So I certainly don't advertise that I'm into it, if you know what I mean. I don't take manga to school, or draw it in school, don't go around saying "Desu~" or "Arigatou" (though I'd like to) A few of my friends know I like it but they don't really get it so... (: How bout you?

If I met you in real life with you ending with those... I'l strangle you :/ joking ^^ . Why would I want to wear typical clothing , in my mind set everyone should have a "style" >:3 (don't get me wrong , I love all clothing styles).
Moving on

I am only open to anime/manga likers if they are opened themselves. Why would I discuss my interest to someone who dislikes it?? It would be waste of time.

I feel that this is a odd forum topic for this website. If we weren't interested and open to anime and/or manga, we wouldn't be here. We live in BFE where the women I know got married right out of high school and can talk about nothing more than their kids, husbands and American Idol. That leaves a huge gap so I have to talk about my interests with people younger than me or with close friends who endure my ramblings. I really don't mind if people like it or not. It's my interest. Besides, I don't think you can stereotype people who do like anime/manga into looking, acting or speaking a certain way. That is being rather narrow-minded and short changing yourself and your interest.

Well, I have lots of anime shirts and I wear them a lot, so I don't hide it. I wouldn't actively start random conversations about anime with someone unless they commented on my hobby. Of course I'm the type of person who doesn't really comment on anything unless he has something to say about it.

No, I do not tell people I like anime/manga. I mean, I tell people over the interenet, but no one in meh real life. However, my family does.. Even when I ask them NOT to tell anyone, they still do.. *deep sigh*

i like talking about it! my parents and my sister know i'm into it but my parents doesn't like the way that i'm into it. my sister, she knows some anime and sometimes borrow my anime dvds.
but i have a couple of friends i met in high school and they're into anime as well. i even go to conventions to find new friends that are into anime.

In online, sure, why not, especially when it comes to spreading series which I find are very underrated. In real life, I'll only be open about it if the person does have an interest for it, since otherwise it'd be nothing but a waste of time.
