Used to hide it, then opened up a bit and lo and behold; the people around me also admitted to watching anime. Life lesson right there.

I'm not proud of it, therefore, I hide it.

I admit it, I don't care what people think, but lately I haven't watch that much of anime that I used to. So sooner or later I gonna stop watching anime.

so what makes you not proud of it?
i don't mean like you should hold a parade and chant "we're here! we're... not actually queer but we like anime! and we're going to stay!!" (or whatever chant you like....) but what makes it so bad you feel the need to hide it? amongst what might be considered your peer group at least. (people at school, people of same age, etc)

like.. -planning- to stop? or just losing interest in the stuff that's showing lately?

hm, i never really considered western otaku to have a specific "look".. i mean sure, some have 800 badges/buttons and 900 keychains, and 1200 other accessories and try to wear them all at once.. but it's pretty rare to find that, for any hobby, outside of specific gatherings. (anime cons, star trek cons, heavy metal concerts, etc, as per your individual hobbies)
what would you think of as a "typical otaku style/look" ?

I don't mention it really, but if someone asks I'll say yes, not afraid at all to admit it.

I don't hide it.. I don't like to stand out too much in a crowd by admitting it openly though.

I guess it might be harder for people in middle school/high school (more so for females) but once you get to college the judgments stop and you'll meet some awesome people. Then you can take pride in loving anime so don't give up!!!

This is just so sad ...... are you too busy for it or just suddenly stopped liking it? Especially since you admit you like it to others. If your disillusioned with anime right now I'm sure the Recommendations thread can give you something to watch.

I don't see the point of hiding it. Everyone that knows me knows i LOVE anime and KDrama's with a burning passion and I've ever been made fun of it either

I don't talk about it at all, really, but it's not like I hide it or anything.

I only admit to it if asked first. Even then, I hold back and only discuss a few entry-level shows, trying to not possibly overwhelm them if they don't really watch as much as I do. Honestly, the subject has only come up only a handful of times in my life, so it makes me think those around me aren't into it so I don't make it known.
