Not at all。
I don't actually see any type of problem in watching what you want to。
If others can watch whatever it is they do, so can you。

I don't really hide the fact that I watch anime, as it hardly ever comes up, but I do hide most of what I watch.
I'd rather not have my image of 'Strangely charismatic creepy dude without interest in the romantic' to be ruined.

No one knows that I watch anime. Nobody in my High School has ever mentioned a microbe of anything even barely related to anime. Maybe, because I am from a somewhat rural part of Ohio. Not even my family knows the true extent at which I watch anime. I watch it after I am sent to bed, I watch it on my iPod (usually for several hours most nights). Probably nobody would even care if I told them; But, I still have the fear that they will not like me for being "different" or "not mainstream" (as mainstream as you can get in a rural school).I have been watching for years I get good grades and have many good friends, but until I find someone that I like that also likes anime and I like them enough I will continue to keep it a secret.

I don't hide it, but it's not like I'm really open about it either, depends on who I'm talking too. I don't think it's necessary for every person to know what you like and don't like, if you don't feel like talking about don't.

I couldn't be more open about my interests. Well, generally.. Besides, you'd be surprised how many people don't actually seem to have any...

I'm proud of my interests, including anime: as quite frankly, anime is awesome.

No i don't hide that fact. i have friends who are into anime and a lot of friends who aren't, they know that i like anime and some of them think its weird but, i don't care what they think cuz its my life and i decide what i choose to do and don't do, and if ur friend have a problem with it (not saying they do) then u should get new friends cuz some of my friends don't watch anime but, they don't judge me for it XD so no i don't hide it i never have and never will XD

whenever i do reveal that i'm into anime, it never fails to surprise people.


Yeah the few who figured it out were really shocked, I mean..it seems like these days if you're athletic you can't be into "nerdy" things like anime or whatever. It's annoying

I don't talk about it all that much, and even then if asked I usually say I was watching cartoons. Anime fans just have to much of a terrible reputation around them that I don't want to be associated with.


That's exactly how I feel and something I've mentioned in several replies..I mean, it's the anime itself that I'm embarrassed about..it's the company that I'll be associated with, and obviously I don't have a problem with people who watch anime..obviously, but the it's the over-the-top anime fans that will be become a part of my image. It's still stupid to be worried about, I know, but that's the feeling I'm trying to get over lol.

Animation can create such great universes at the flick of a pencil. When people say "Anime is "gay" and "stupid" I tell them you like South Park right? Even though South Park is not an anime it is ANIMATED. What is so different to have a funny animated show (South Park) you like compared to an animated show about heroes having an adventure or one that explores human emotion? (Spice and Wolf) They are both drawn up from ideas and made into animated shows. The sexually open topics of certain anime shows may make some viewers uncomfortable but in my opinion that just shows Japan has accepted sexual topics in their culture, something that is still very explicit in the U.S.A. and therefore misrepresented in certain animes. That is my slice of cake.


I couldn't have said it better myself! In fact that's the very argument I use when defending anime against people who look down on it...and more specifically I point out the fact the many Americans love DBZ...which is an anime..Pokemon..which is an anime...Digimon..which is an anime...all of those shows originated in Japan yet people adore them. So I ask them what's so wrong about the rest of it? Well..nothing. Except the company. lol

No, I definitely don't.
You wouldn't know from just seeing me on the street. My shoe collection rivals my video game collection. Which is nothing compared to my anime collection. Which so far, I haven't personally met anyone who has beat any of them in size. Or who has any of my game/anime related tattoos.

Just because we take care of our appearances, and enjoy other activities, doesn't mean we can't indulge ourselves in things we love.
And if they think I'm lame for the things I like, then I simply don't want to be their friend.


What tattoos do you have??


I have the Hylian Crest on the back of my neck.
1UP Mushroom on my wrist.
Sailor Moon`s Crisis Moon Compact in between my shoulder blades.
A black Moogle on my left foot. My best friend has a white Moogle on hers.
And Totoro on my arm.


I'm kind of at a loss of words lol I'm impressed.

I'm also from Ohio, and there is a surprising amount of anime fans where I'm from but unfortunately that's not where i'm at right now. I graduated from a very rural area and it's definitely infinitely tougher to let the anime side of you out there versus a city area.
