I have nerdy female friends who like comics, dr. who, that kind of stuff but not anime. It's fairly uncommon, or nobody in my circle of friends just wants to admit they watch anime regularly; including me.


That happens more then not here in the states.

otaku girls are MAD SKETCH, from my experience.

A lot of them expect you to look like a dude from an anime, first of all. . . . and even if you do look like one, they're likely to burn you.


That dream of meeting a girl who likes the same stuff as you, we all have it, but that's all it is, a dream.
It's not all it's cracked up to be in real life at all.

It's weird that you don't know girls that like anime, because it's female dominated fandom these days, eh?

I understand and agree with your about the super Otaku girls way of thinking bud. The fandom of women well thats another thing since you only get to meet then at conventions.

Where I live, i have actually met more girls than guys that are into anime.

Like some others who have posted, I love anime, but don't really talk about it out in public a lot, unless I'm already pretty good friends with you. Since most of my friends aren't anime fans, they don't understand what I'm talking about when I talk about anime. Normally I stick to common ground topics.

Well the reason why most of us don't tell the world we love anime is usually because we are afraid to be excluded by society and our friend that are not into anime. I do agree we need to stick to common ground topics but a bit of showing our love is not that bad as long as our friends are true friends.

Even [some] girls in Japan dislike it. I think it might be because the lack of sufficient knowledge on the subject in your country. It might also be because you are talking to girls in a difficult phase of life who are only interested in "fitting in" and love and fads/popularity, and blah. There is, actually a slight chance that the girl is a "closet Otaku", or maybe feels the same way about guys. It could be that people in these countries prefer live-action to animation, feeling that they are just for children. It could be the the stereotype for anime- either perverted or directed for guys. Do the guys around you also like anime? Maybe, just maybe- the girls you talk to just don't like you (which is my problem), or they already know someone with an anime obsession and it drives them nuts. There are actually many different variables affecting this, but I have to say- I think the main reason is because anime is not that big in your general area, so they cannot distinguish anime to cartoons, and may not even know much about it- or the wrong things. There are those girls who enjoy "mainstream" anime, and there are those who don't like the general personalities of those who do. It all depends on the person.
