First off you are asking this on crunchyroll where people watch anime so no matter what people will agree with you. Really it all depends on you. This is because it shouldn't matter what you watch when you watch. If its what you like then go for it man, and you shouldnt care what other think of you for it. So enjoy it all. I watch all kinds and honestly I don't care what people think cause its something I like to watch during some of my free time, but hey that is just me.

HI guys, I'm a sophomore in high school and i enjoy anime of any kind. I am 15 and i am pretty tall for my age (about 6 ft tall). Its pretty weird and rare to see a guy who watches it, mainly girls enjoy anime. I even have premium membership on Crunchyroll lol.
What would anyone think of me if you knew all this? Would you think i am weird or what?


Hi! I'm over 40, have a high profile professional career, a wife, and a parrot.

Art isn't about age. In fact, if age enters the question, it typically isn't art.

Go with what you like and like with what you go with.

You are free to quote me, youngster.

I am a 40+ year old guy and I am really enjoying shojo anime and manga right now and I don't care who knows!

If you like it, watch it. Don't worry about anyone else.



I agree. My boyfriend says he's hesitant to tell people that he likes it....and I'm like "Why, it's great?"

If you like something, there's no point in being ashamed about it.

It doesn't matter who you are. There's no right or wrong in enjoying anime. If you like anime, you like it. I, for one, LOVE it! I tell lots of people at my college that i like to watch anime. I'm probably the only one who tells people they like anime. They don't laugh or anything, they think it's quite cool

There are people who might think its weird but some people think watching sports is weird. Its all a matter of opinion. Trust me when I say that there are tons of people out there that watch anime and read manga. Just because you are a guy doesnt mean you restricted to ecchi all the time geez. as a guy, some of the best shows I've watched are "shoujo" like Kaichou wa Maid-Sama for example. This current season also has some excellent one like Tonari no Kaibutsu ( My Little Monster which is on here....you should probably check it out if you havent yet)

Trust me, it is only weird if you let it be.

This site is starting to attract old(er) people... Not sure the reasoning. Back in the day it was full of rambunctious teenagers but that was back in the day. Not that old people liking anime is wrong but you get the gist of it.

Anyways enough with my rant, if you had added shoujo in the title I'd offer a more in depth answer, however that isn't the case so my answer to you is a question.

Why would it be weird for a 15 year old sophomore at 6 foot tall to like anime?

Actually let me add a little more to my original post. You're in high school it is actually a place full of different teenagers trying to find a "thing" that isn't weird but that "thing" will always be weird to some kid at school. What I will tell you is if you find a group of people that also shares your joy of anime is it wired in that population? The answer would be No, but the latter would be liking certain animes.

Anyways enough of my words.

Fuck em!!!

You're fine. Just don't overdo it.

In fact most of the people I've ever known that watch anime are guys. Most girls I've ever known tend to like things like telenovelas and Asian dramas.

I like anime, of all kinds. I think that, aside from books, it's one of the best storytelling mediums.

Ah yes, books! Most bookworms that I've ever known are girls. I don't fucking care though. I have my own stash. I don't have as many as I would like and most are used, but I'm really proud of my books.

Look do what you love and learn from what you do. As long at what you do don't hurt no one, if anyone else don't like it, they can just fuck off.

I never understood why teenagers try to find reasons that they're weird. There are very few things you can do that are legitimately weird, unless you're a psychopath. Even then, the very fact that you can have a slight understanding of what a psychopath might be thinking shows that you aren't all that different from them. Taking an interest in anything is uncool for 15-year-olds, which means that anyone that does have an interest feels strange. Feeling strange then leads to feelings that you are unique in the world, and because uniqueness is also considered cool, it means that being strange is cool for 15-year-olds. I'm sure even teenagers don't understand teenagers -- I know I didn't.

Also, I was under the impression that the anime base was more male than female... and you totally lost me with the 6-foot-tall detail. You don't really think that height has anything to do anime, do you?

There's nothing wrong with enjoying all kind of anime regardless of genres.

You rock!

But yea, I'm 21 and in the military. I love anime and have loved it for many years. And I am a sucker for the romance anime. As long as you enjoy it, forget about what other people might say. Besides, here on CR, you are among comrades.

Yup,like the others say ,no there isn't any thing wrong with it ,in a matter of a fact I LOVE em romance and shoujo stuff...just don't go too in depth to the BL stuff then im ok
But yeah,my philosophy,if you like it don't give a smacking butt bout' what other people think bout' it...except if you start killing people as what you like or cause the world to die then....maybe....maybe you should rethink bout' it but as long as it's not then it's ok.XD

TOO many commas haargh!
