I'm a girl and I obviously love anime. OwO Also, back in High School and college most of my friends were 1: Girls, 2: into anime/manga. Maybe all the girls in your area that like anime are hiding out in their homes, watching CR.

Hmm, i think it's all about how you approach the situation. As many people here have stated, there is chances that it's from the stereotypes, to even pretending that don't know cause others may find them weird. I know when i meet girls who like anime, they generally are the ones asking me i like it or not, then they ask me to watch some things. though other times i ask them if they do, and if they don't and mention something about the stereotype, i merely explain to them kindly, that if they like movies, and have a movie genre they like, then they probably will find something in anime they like.

It's a touchy topic for some people though, as another stereotype (which was mentioned before) is that it's only for children. So they may think "oh you watch that kid stuff?" or other thoughts, Which again with the right explanation, they generally will see your point of view and may secretly watch it then you can make them slip up by mentioning something from anime from time to time. As, they will more likely then not watch what is available to them, unless they go searching for it.

Then as another person mentioned, there is the problem of if they like your or not/ Find you interesting or not. Which can also play a role to how they see you.

Though in the end, the majority of teens are going to be more interested in things that catch their eye, and the next media hit. (not all girls or women are likes this.) So really it comes down to how you play your cards at the start of the game sort of speak.

Hell i know a girl who watches Berserk, that was the first thing that seemed to come to her mind when i asked her about anime haha that was back in high school mind you.

I admit lately I have been neglecting to watch anime, especially since I'm stuck with university and internship- but I still am a geek-at-heart when it comes to anime, and I'm not ashamed of it haha. I guess when you're passionate with what you like, and polite enough not to judge anyone, everyone will come to like you a lot too. Girls shouldn't fear being called a geek just because they happen to like anime.

It would be nice to be true to oneself, and be nice to others- we would less likely be stereotyped and judged.

Anime is incredibly common among girls where I live. Probably even more common than among guys.

You are 100% right we need to destroy this stereotype when it comes to Anime and Manga. To me both are great and they need to have their place as great story telling tools.

Back in my home town there were tons of girls who liked anime/manga. We even watch anime at our public library in the confrence room! We had the best librarian ever! We did so much fun stuff.

oddly enough, there are quite a few girls that were at my High School that really liked anime, unfortunately almost all of them either like One Piece, Naruto, Bleach or oddly enough Yu-Gi-Oh. All of which are series that i just don't really care for at all, and 90% percent of them were Yaoi Fangirls.

It is very irritating, especially when you are the kind of guy that really likes shorter, more compact series that actually end

This could make for an interesting poll to see what regions of NA and other countries have more people into anime. I'm guessing though the coastal and more liberal cities will have more people into anime

Seems as a kid in middle school all the girls watched anime, and few of the boys, then in highschool it was pretty much even, if anything more boys, and after school it seems it's only guys who watch anime, and all the girls say they no longer watch any.. just what I notice, lol.
