my close friends know i do, but im leaning towards letting others start to know. I normally watch on my own or with my few friends that like anime. I listen to all the music when i work. Im becoming more open slowly as im starting to care less.

I understand how someone could feel when it comes to this sort of thing. My significant other has a lo of friends and we all usually spend time together. When I'm around them, I feel like I need to turn down mylove for anime and manga. They don't understand and treat me like some sort of crazy or childish person. I find it so irritating. They know that I'm very passionate about those sorts of things. So yeah, in situations like that I do feel like I need to keep my anime/manga interests to myself.

I don't hide it, but I don't make a point of it either. If someone asks I'll tell them, but I'm not going to go around and ask strangers whether or not they've seen the latest episode of gj-bu or kotoura-san.

Not really... sometimes I do if the people are snooty, but usually i dont because if they dont like me for me... what's the point in knowing them?

yes! totally, I just hope they don't see all the crunchyroll liking on the front page here... *facebook* + Hope they don't see my status updates that say stuff from anime's! Ohwait, i'm screwed! xD

Serious though, I don't hide it anymore that much, but it's because most of my friends have seen or heard of anime and know about it, so they aren't people who would say bad things about it, if I were to say I liked an anime that I watched yesterday :P
But it's sorta weird when my parents come in and see me watching it xD! My dad once came in and just sat down for a few minutes and watched lol he left without saying much after that xD My mom hasn't had much luck seen that much of it... But it's mostly because I try to hide all the fan service from them xD!!!

Yep definitely.. only person who knows I watch anime is my wife... I do have alot of good friends that I can do anything from play sports to boardgames with but none that share this particular passion of mine.

Can't lie I wish I had a friend or two I could talk about new series coming out or the latest episode of X show.. not having that outlet can suck if your really excited about something. Tried getting my wife into it but the first show she said she might be willing to watch would be HoTD cause it involves zombie's and she loves the walking dead..... lets just say I decided that would be a bad idea before we even got started given the crazy amount of fan service in that show

I don't hide it, but most people I know have no interest in it, so it isn't a topic that comes up very often. I tried to go to a club around here to meet people but I felt a bit intimidated by their enthusiasm for the subject and stopped going.

admitting your interests and celebrating them even though your peers might look down on you for that can be really hard for most people. no point in denying it. it takes strength to enjoy yourself regardless of the negative opinions of others, so congrats, op, for being brave like that. it doesn't come easily to everyone to say it doesn't matter, and making the choice to do that is awesome. i'm hesitant to admit to what i like because i don't enjoy sharing that with people i meet. it's a conversation starter and i'm not super fond of conversations. i'm the stoic coolkid (don't take me seriously, omg), so i don't have interests or passions, obvs. but really, i am unabashedly in love with anime, manga, k-pop, j-pop, and errthang else; it's okay to love things and to geek out over them. fight the good fight, op.

I'm 21 and my friend all say I'm a huge dork. They bring it up like it's a bad thing around guys... but I just laugh and ask if watch any! Some get in an intense conversation about dragon ball... while others ask what the heck anime is

Yes lol. I do because of the people Im around and my personality of how people think of me. They would never expect me to watch anime. I mean it wouldn't really be a big deal if they knew but I prefer it to be my little secret get away haha. So I don't tell anyone because I don't have to.

Most of my friends know about it, they don't have problem. They told me that they'd be more surprised if I didn't watch it because I'm Asian lmao. I got two of them into it too! But I don't really bother telling other people though, unless they bring it up themselves. Same with Kpop and Jpop.
