The anime meet-up club that I co organize, is for those who graduated , and working anime lovers...we meet once a month and at activities down Little Tokyo events and stores and Japanese bookstores and during the convention. I have a lot of cosplay friends I met every convention and festival.

My friends at work knows becuase I show then my cosplay pictures and that usually starts a conversation about anime , even at my optomytrist who is run by a line of Japanese family ask becuase I get my colored contact lens from them .

So i would guess, i am lucky that I can talk about anime to alot .

I've met a few at the local comic shop which also sells manga and anime. Mostly just by browsing in that area of the shop a few people have started a conversation with me. Other than that through friends that knew other people who liked anime. About the only thing you can do is when at a book store/comic shop if you see someone browsing just ask what they are into. You'll either have a nice conversation or an awkward moment of staring and silence.

Barnes in Nobles in the Comic and Manga section. All day baby haha, but aside from that I also ran into some people at malls when i go shopping or strolling.

Cons are usually a good place to meet people who like anime. But, for me personally, even if I was standing in line at Starbucks, I'll always end up meeting or seeing someone who does like it.

Naunix I'm converting as many of my friends as possible o_O...they play MMO's so i weasel them in with SOA and then hit em with Death Note and Code Geass...so far I'm having a solid success rate xD.


I had friends in high school that made fun of me for watching anime for 4 YEARS. I saw them a little while after college and they had all watched Death Note and told me they were sorry for making fun of me. I have gotten so many people to respect my hobby watching Death Note. They never stick around for other anime, though, I'll get'm one day!

As for where to meet other people who like anime, I've talked to a couple of people at the manga section of Barnes and Noble. The only other time I met somebody who liked anime was while I was buying anime at a Suncoast store.

I don't think my school has an anime club :(


I know about that lol, I have one friend that only watches anime that is similar to death note.
WTF is it about death note that is so appealing, I mean it is good but it is so overrated.

Pretty much school, clubs, forums - like here, and possibly facebook pages/groups. If you're done with schooling, then you are terribly at a disadvantage.

If you're really desperate (or have the spare time), you could use Meetup.com to assemble an anime group for coffee meetings in your area to discuss anime in person, and when you get to know each other you can have anime viewing parties!

I started an anime group when I was in college that was a lot of fun. I had like 8-10 regular members. It doesn't sound like much, but forming a small group of people to watch anime with = priceless!

So, I meet a lot of people on a daily basis especially due to doing customer service at work. However, it seems rare in the real world (non-internet) that I happen upon others who love anime, and I know I am not alone on this one. Cons are obviously a great place and a lot of fun. But besides them, is there any place in particular you have found yourself becoming acquainted with others that love anime?


it is a simple answer: anime clubs either in: school, college. and many more

Hmmm there was a facebook group for anime in my town, i joined it and it was dead for like 2 years, i checked it at random one day and someone linked to another group that was trying to set up an anime convention in my town, so I joined them.
They had IRL meetings every week till the convention did happen. I did a bunch of volunteer work for them, and I got to be staff for the convention, which was pretty cool.
then after that I returned to being a hermit and drifted away.

In my area where i live its hard to find anyone into anime here and become friends with them plus start hangout group to visit anime conventions within IL state. Well its not the state that is the problem but finding people who lives within my area and i do ask people in my area if their into anime but said no.
