I been an anime fan since the 90s, and I never had any friends that liked or enjoyed anime. So, it was a personal hobby, that I never shared with anyone, except online from time to time.

I finally got the idea to join some local groups in NYC, who meet up at restaurants and places each month, as well as other events they offer.

Anyone else here belong to any groups like this? First meet up I am going to is next Thursday. It should be fun to finally meet other anime fans for once.

I have not joined any personally, but I do know people who enjoy anime/manga. I'm sure I'll join one eventually, also good luck with that first meet up.

You could always go to some kind of anime expo. I've personally never been to one, but they are bound to be filled with anime fans. The pics seem to show that they are pretty fun. I have several friends who go regularly. One makes her own costumes and she always cosplays. Others have made friends there, mostly my raver friends, haha.

There's the anime club at school I go to from time to time (I'm more like a ghost member) and I have a lot of friends who like anime, if that's sufficient enough.

I searched on http://www.meetup.com/. You can search for local meet-up groups in your area. I was going to start a NEPA anime group with weekend meet-ups, and then saw it is like $12-$15 a month for the organizer has to pay. I am not so generous. lol

So, I found a few in Manhattan that meet up at least once a month. They have their monthly meetings, and some other meets during the month, like Maid Cafes, and anime viewings.

I did a Japanese Culture group, a manga group, and an anime group. I will check them all out. Would be nice to meet some people locally that have the same interests. Everyone I know is just obsessed about baseball and other stuff I find boring.
