I don't hide it per se, I just don't bring it up in casual conversation. Most of my friends, including my girlfriend, watch anime and read manga anyway. so in the long run it doesn't matter.

Why i must to ? Does people hate anime ?

I'm being mean to myself if i'm doing what is right for the others and doing what is wrong for myself.

I wouldn't say I 'hide' it. I just don't go out wearing a Naruto t-shirt and telling everyone about it. If somebody asked me I'd tell them I do.

I hide it because none of my friends are into that stuff and i feel like if they find out they will look down on me and wouldn't wanna be my friend anymore.

I don't hide the fact I'm into anime because a lot of my friends are (or rather have watched a few anime). I don't really tell them all the different anime/manga I've gotten into apart from 2 of them who are into anime/manga as much as I am. As for clothing I don't go out wearing anime stuff.

I completely understand the OP perspective. I've been in & surrounded by the "alpha male" group my whole life, sports, playboy persona, six years in the Army, even amateur cage fighting. Typical macho stuff but at the same time, according to myanimelist.net I've watched about 60 complete days worth of anime(way way more actually), listen to J-pop( very secretly lol ), even enka is growing on me. But there's no way I can approach a girl and be like want to come check out the latest attack on titan episode and expect it to go anywhere other than awkwardly staring at me like an alien. So I think I'll keep hiding it until I can get a date from it.

Why should I hide what I love? I love anime and that's that. I don't care if people think I'm weird or anything like that because this is what makes me me and I have no reason to hide such an awesome world that I go into when I'm online

NOPE!!!!!!!! i love anime and i dont care who knows it!
Posted 4/23/13
Nope. Pretty much everyone I know knows I love anime. xD I've also started cosplaying and I have my photos all over my Fb page. lol I've even had some "preppy people" (or just whatever you want to call them) come up to me and say how they think it's cool I cosplay and make my own costumes. That surprised me.

If people want to judge you just for liking anime well then who needs them?

I'm a 20 year old college student, have been heavily involved with sports my whole life, usually considered a "ladies man" or "pretty boy" and I'm not what people think of when they think of anime..and we all know that in the U.S. anime is looked down upon as being "lame" or stupid or whatever. In the past, I would feel extremely pressured to hide the fact that I watch anime...because of my personality and interests I find myself around people who don't watch anime and usually think it's weird. I'm a lot more open about it nowadays seeing as to how it's my life and I shouldn't be embarrassed about these kinds of things. I also listen to J-pop and am still self-conscious about that too..as far as others hearing me listening to it. Does anybody feel the same way or maybe used to and just got over it like I'm trying to?


I don't hide that I watch anime, but theres a lot of good music in anime and games, and I DO keep that there's a lot of it in my library to myself -.-


[Edit]: Actually I have the NERV logo proudly displayed on the back of my car. It's not super obvious, but it's open to see like any other bumper sticker. I DID see someone have a window sticker of Ayanami Rei on their right-rear door window. And it was BIG, that's a bit much
