I don't hide it my family knows I love anime and they even get me gifts(Mothers' Day, Birthday, Anniversary(my hubby gets me anime)Christmas etc)with anime themes and when some of my kids' friends find out that I love anime (not all but a good portion of them)they tell my kids they are lucky to have a mother that likes anime. I wear my anime shirts to work and just out and about and I have my anime purses/bags(have 3 that I change around depending on my mood) that I use all the time. I've gotten into several conversations with people of all ages that I never would have expected to be anime fans because of a shirt I was wearing or they would see the anime logo on one of my purses/bags. This past Mothers' Day my sons' friend and their kids made me a Mothers' Day anime theme card(I had been going over to their house and making cookies and letting their kids help me make them) I wasn't expecting it but it had two of my favorite animes featured on it.

I don't advertise it out of the blue, but I don't hide it if asked. It's a non-issue.

At first I wouldn't deny it if the the topic came up, but then I realised that a lot of people, even most of my friends, are very prejudiced against it. I haven't met many people who enjoy anime and like to talk about it. That's why I decided to join online forums

my friends know that im into it but they only watch animes like naruto,bleach and one piece which is sad, i only have 1 friend that watches the same stuff as me but he never talks about it, thank god i have online friends though

I definitely am one especially in high school. Everyone used to judge the people who watched anime. The ones who were open about it before were automatically considered losers. I didn't want to incite that kind of social pressure so I kept quiet. I eventually shared it with a few friends and they were totally okay. In college, it's more open so I just talk if people want to talk about it.

I completely forward about my interests. I constantly bring anime items to school. If someone asks me what i like, I tell them.

I'm not closeted, but people don't know me well enough to know I'm an otaku. I like keeping things to myself.

It's not exactly hidden, but I try not to bring too much attention to it, especially after some slight teasing (all in good fun, of course) from a both a colleague and my adviser.
I'm not ashamed of it, and am not really trying too hard to hide my liking of it, but I'm not exactly being extremely vocal about it, either.

Yes and no? I mean, it's not exactly a 'typical' topic that me and my friends talk about. I haven't even asked them if they watch it. For all I know, they could be a closet anime fan themselves :\

Hmm, I thought about it before.. Then I was just like f it, I like anime, and some of my friend do too, some don't and yeah it might be kind hard, because there is always that one person that accuses you of being an otaku, or something, but I just tell them they suck, for criticizing something they don't even know, and I just tell them to shut the f up, so yeah.. Not much of a bother, if you really like it, and you don't care about what people think, and you actually defend your likes...

I hid it all through highschool. As I got older I stopped caring what other people think about me, but most people think my love for anime is wierd so they avoid me.

But then again, I may be weird, I'd rather stay at home drinking sake,eating ramen and watching a new episode of "Kids on the Slope" than go out partying. XD
