Just as the title says, are you open about your interests in anime/manga, or do you keep it hidden from other people who might look down about your hobby? After watching the first few episodes of Oreimo last night (which also deals with the same subject), I was pretty curious about other anime fans' stance on this issue. From watching Lucky Star and Oreimo, it seems that the general public in Japan also kind of look down upon anime-obsessed otaku. Personally, I would say that I'm a bit in-between. I do share my interests of anime with my close friends, and occasionally, my family---but, I'm kind of quiet about my hobby, and I don't really fit-in with the majority of the outspoken anime fans who are members of an Anime Club at their school or town.

you know an otaku doesn't always refer to someone with an interest in anime.

I'm open about Anime, Manga, all my interests to my friends, family whatever. Its no fun if you keep it all to your self and stuff. I like to express my obsession with people. So yeah! ^.^

Depends on whether or not people can accept the fact that I am. If not, I keep it to myself.

I usually keep it to myself, unless I'm among friends that are into this sort of thing. I don't want to feel embarrassed or ashamed of myself just because I like nerdy things and my family doesn't. That's why I usually keep my obsession with anime and videogames to myself. Unless I'm at conventions or with friends that are just as crazy and nerdy as I am. lol.

Nope, no one knows I watch anime. I lost my debit card and had to call to get a new one, the girl was trying to make sure there had been no fraudulent charges and she said there is some "weird crunchyroll.com website on here?" I felt like my mom just busted me with porn on my card statement
