People see me as an elf. That pretty much say something. Was watching Angel Beats! with my mom. Just one episode and I could not cry like I use to when she was there but somehow my tears came a little anyway. Oh that >>

My friends don't care, though only one likes it other than me.

My mum doesn't care, in fact she always tells me to do what I love. And she buys me manga for holidays and birthday. In fact she points out titles in the book store that might interest me lol.

My mom was the first to find out only because once I got a job a few years back I was finally able to start buying the anime I loved. So eventually my closet was full of it and she found it. She didn't really say anything at first. I then got my little sister and brother into it. I usually watch my anime in private though when they were around we would watch it whenever.

My mom one day asked me If it was porn (facepalm) because one of the girls wasn't wearing much on some advertisement I had gotten in the mail from rightstuf. (It was for "Dirty Pair") She recently went to a bookstore and found a whole section of different anime/manga magazines she later said she never noticed how popular anime was before. So she is becoming more aware of it.

She then told my dad about my hobby. He kinda nonchalantly brought it up by asking "Have you ever heard of anime?" I told him yes, found out he did a google search on it to get a better understanding of what it was. Wondered why I was into it, I told him my reasons and just said "Well it's not my cup of tea but that's fine." He since then has encouraged me to continue to improve my drawing and to one day "Have my own anime." lol.

As far as friends go a few at work know and are fans themselves though not really hardcore mostly stuff that aired on toonami and adult swim.

My friends didn't really care too much at first and I guess after annoying them by telling them to watch certain shows they finally gave it a chance. I got them semi addicted by introducing them to Fruits Basket, Ouran High School Host Club and Gakuen Alice <----- those three anime were the formula for making them come to the dark side muhahaha.
As for my family... they think it's childish that i still watch "cartoons" yeah they don't call it anime, but I do have two cousins in Canada that love anime and even do cosplay at conventions. Actually it was one of them that actually got me really interested in anime/manga

Thank u Tai <3

I must admit no one know I watch anime really, I doubt any of my friends or family would really care if I did tell them but I love watching things like the original pokemon or harem romances so I don't know how they would react...

Most of my friends know i am into anime. They seem to accept it as part of my asian culture since i am half asian, but they still think its weird. They are those dudes that go to clubs every weekend and i just can't get into that really. My parents are pretty supportive though. They don't care as long as it's entertaining and fun to watch.

They know im into it! But none of them really want to know more about it... So im by my lonesome. The few friends I have didn't get it and weren't into it.
My brother likes One Piece and Naruto but that bout it.
But sometimes I get my dad to watch Studio Ghilbi films with me :D

It's a non-issue. Thankfully I never had to deal with people who felt the need to ridicule me or put me down for what I enjoy watching/reading.
