I used to be embarrassed about watching anime but as I got older, I stopped caring and now I talk about it openly.

Me and My best friend always make sure everybody in the class knows about the awesomeness that is DBZ, even if they don't want to, witch is most of the time.

I think that everybody I know is at least aware that I love anime. I have quite a good number of friends who do, too. We actually have an anime club at my school, so I joined that during my freshman year.

Yeah, just about everyone I know knows and if they don't then my shirts and anime collection and key chains are obvious hints. Doesn't matter to me if they watch it or not or like it or not. I do what I like doing.

I keep it a secret because it makes me more different from everyone else. I can only be so different before it distances me from my piers and friends. the problem is the only people i know watch anime at my school are emos and i really wish i could find someone creative but still somewhat normal that i could hang out with/watch anime.

Some of my friends know I enjoy anime and few of them do or don't watch it. I was once in an anime club back when I went to college but still attended a little afterwards. I'm one of the anime clubs' veterans.

I find that there are more mainstream entertainment options one should be embarrassed by than anime.

I'd sooner avoid someone because of their "normal" hobbies and interests considering what's popular right now.

Even so, I'm introverted about many of my interests, especially anime.

Everyone knows I watch anime. (heck I even spell it out to some people if necessary) A ton of people I know watch anime too. In fact, 85% of the people I hang out with just so happen watch anime. At least amongst the people around my age group.

If otaku's/weeaboos saw us, they'd totally think we watch only mainstream TV or something. Man, the truth is often times much further than the assumption. (which actually happened quite a few times)

I noticed that if you talk about anime the way you talk the same way you talk about other stuff, people come out of their shell and often join in the conversation.

Seriously, at my workplace everyone watched anime in secret. Once I had a casual conversation going with a buddy of mine, people jumped in like we were talking about Monday night Football.

Totally learned that tons of people watch anime. FARRR MOREEE than I imagined possible within my vicinity. Maybe that's just my area though...

I don't think it's necessary to tell them sometimes because they know you're odd enough. Even if they think it's weird I have plenty other friends that like anime too. You're supposed to be weird and unique because that's who you are, inside and out. I be like," I love it so it's okay if you don't like it."

Of course. I haven't yet met anyone who frowns upon anime.
