Anybody out there an anime fan but keeps it to themselves? All my friends are not into it and think its geeky and nerdish. I always loved animation especially those with mature story lines.

I am a complete closet anime fan. I once told my friend and he criticized me heavily (not friends anymore) I only occasionally talk to a girl in my photography class about bleach but i really just keep to myself. I wish i had someone to talk to about it

If I talked to people I would not hide it. If they don't like it and see the need to make fun of me for it all the time then obviously they aren't people I would want around.

my family knew i liked it as a kid, i like the usual DBZ, Sailor Moon, Tenchi Muyo, Trigun.
im 19 now and my parents hate the fact that i still play Pokemon, if they ever found out that i still watch Anime and read Manga...i dont want to think about what would happen.

I keep it to myself. Only people in my family know since I have a complete library at home.

I am pretty much not ashamed of anything I like if someone asked me my interests I would tell them first that I love anime, I don't really talk about it unless someone else happens to be talking about it, but I live in Canton Ohio so I really don't have any irl friends that like anime so kinda don't really discuss the topic much in my life sadly =( but would be nice to finally meet someone irl that I could talk to about anime hehe.

Anime as a hobby is no more geeky than fixing up collectable vintage cars or any other hobby really.

I have many interests, but I keep practically all of them secret, not just my anime interests.

My own family doesn't know about it (well, my brothers know I'm familiar with some of it because I've enlightened them to things like "Naruto is not the only anime").

There is one other family my family knows, and THEY know I'm into the otaku scene because I've run into them at one or two cons.

I am a 63 year old Otaku. I have been playing video games since "Pong" and collecting Japanese Anime since Rarma 1/2.The first manga I remember buying was "Lum". The local Video Game Shops greet me by name and the local book store emails me when ever they get new Manga stock in.
I am retired now and spend my time being a full time "Otaku". Life is great.

No, I'm proud to display I'm still into anime... even though it is more directed towards teenagers.

I was laughed at by my business partners for logging onto CR through a public library computer. Hmph! They just don't know what fun they're missing!

I was for a long time. My friend and I got made fun of in middle school and I'm still know as "Sailor Moon Girl" XD. Now that I'm older I don't care so much about what other people think but I don't have many otaku friends minus my ex lol.
