I don't hide it AT ALL! I'm 26 and watch obsessively... I'm actually proud of how much I watch and brag about it haha No one seems to care/judge when I brag about it either, to each their own I guess?

I used to hide it a lot from my mom and friends, but I think since it's less looked down upon nowadays, I can express my interest in anime even more. Not as timid about it as I was when I was younger.

I don't hide it purposefully, it just never comes up in conversation. If someone ever asked me, I definitely wouldn't deny it. Some of my friends know and so do my parents (heck, sometimes my mom and I will watch anime movies together).

To most, yeah. But I make it known to some that I think would accept it. For example:

Ex 1: I'm talking to a decently popular kid. Hell no would I tell them! (which is pathetic but hey, you know..)

Ex 2: I'm talking to someone who isn't popular at all. Eventually I'd bring up that I like it.

Hm
I had a few friends that told me anime wasn't cool and I was losing my popularity and so I decided to ditch them and they got so angry about it too.. But oh well.. it's now the past.

I have 2 best friends in different countries that accept me and my anime life.. (:

I don't hide it.

I've got anime profile pictures, and even wallpapers, but I don't flaunt it or anything.

I appreciate the art style. It is nice.

I don't hide it. Although no one I'm friends with really watches anime so I never get to talk about it. I actually wear anime apparel half the time when I go out kinda like a bill board saying "Hey if you like anime talk to me!" lol.

Hey,

i know what its like to have to hide your love of anime from others. When i was in high school i never let others know what i was into cause i would be look down upon and even laughed at if they new.

But since i have started at university(21 years old) i don't really care anymore i believe that those who don't like anime and video games can just deal with it, but i do keep my fanboyness on the stealth level even though i don't really care :ph34r:.

But hey you will eventually come to learn or the realization that anime is quickly becoming dare i say it popular with others and some people will just surprise you in the fact that they watch anime and have for ages, i know i was when i went to uni and my now friends where all raving about SAO.

I also don't hide it, but I don't go around telling people that I'm an anime fan. I wish there were more people irl that I could talk to about anime though.

I don't try to hide it but everyone knows I like anime because my facebook profile picture is an anime character.

And sometimes, I fangirl in front of everyone when I see an anime thing, so that's another reason why everyone knows.

But I don't try to convert them or anything. So that's why they are cool.

They can watch their own thing and love whatever it is they love whereas I love my anime.

There's nothing wrong with loving anime. It's no big deal but I don't try to hide it because there's nothing to hide. I like anime just like someone likes chess or swimming or tennis or photography.

So yea. If people can accept all those other hobbies, I don't see why they can't accept anime.

And so far, my non-anime friends have been alright. They haven't mocked it or anything. so yea. It's all good.
