I make posts about it one Facebook once every couple of days. Most of my friends who watch anime watch English Dub only, so most of the time I'm afraid of spoiling them. XD Wish I had more friends who I could talk anime with. lol

When I was in middle school I made sure not to tell anyone I liked anime because they made fun of it like every five minutes. But when I got to high school I made sure everyone knew I liked anime. I had the shirts, the bags, manga in my bag if I got bored. LOOL Made quite a few friends because of it. : P

No, i could care less what people think. I do what i want when i want and how i want, and judgmental people need to mind their own business.

Its not like my description of myself, pretty much only when people ask I tell them. Although I never hide it, I watch episodes in lecture when I'm beyond bored. I evidently don't look like I should watch anime...I didn't know I had to look a certain way -.-

i keep it a secret mainly because no one i know watches anime other than typical shonen (naruto) another part is because when ever i told somebody i would get the response "so you watch little girls?" or "you like tentacle hentai?" both untrue, to me being able to read yuri/yaoi or other adult themes takes a level of maturity to look past the "hentai" aspects, same with manga. that is why i dont share, because people dont seem to be as mature.

I still have this mentality that anime is a guilty pleasure of mine. Maybe because it's often so ludicrous or inappropriate (in terms of PC) that sharing it so causally might add to the negative image I already have. You see, I'm the type of person who can really love something and want to share my interests with others and learn new perspectives, but past experiences have made me quite reserved and cautious around people.

I think that people who are comfortable with themselves express themselves without hesitation, and it really is something to admire. The other day I was in a lecture hall with like 200 people and saw this kid in front of me pull out his laptop that had a changing background--and all backgrounds were anime character wallpapers and fan art including some fan service. Considering the angle of the seating pretty much everyone behind him could probably see it, and no f**ks were given. I guess I've yet to build that level of self-confidence.

I think the thing I fear the most is misrepresenting myself, so I keep to myself most of the time, even when I'm around someone with similar interests. Ironic, considering I find individuality one of the most important qualities in a person--this probably suggests that I'm a masochist.

I am a disgrace I hide that i watch Anime becuz i kno that others would make fun of me or wont accept me....well at least my friends(yes i hav friends) but when i see people admitting they like anime I always wished i could do that but i still fear the thought....i just feel myself when i watch anime and not my fake self at school....that's not who i really am, anime is my life

Depends, I guess
I don't really hide it, I just don't tell people. But if they ask what I like, I'd happily say anime and manga
It's not because that I fear they'd make fun of me or anything
but because they might not know much about anime and kind of leave our conversation hanging awkwardly :
