I don't hide the fact that I love anime. I watch Naruto publicly at school with my classmates.
Well, a few girls do think that I'm weird because I'm a girl that loves shounen animes like Naruto, Fairy Tail but I don't really care. But fact is I gained more friends because of anime. Some of my close friends like anime.

I rarely hide my interests. Anime is just one of those things I can talk about with my friends. And occasionally, my interest in a certain anime will influence someone...

Me, a bad influence? Whatever do you mean?

Hmn, I don't really talk about anime much, since I don't really have any friends IRL who are into it like i am.
It's just not fun to have a one-sided conversation, you know?
But if someone were to ask me, I probably wouldn't hide it.
After all, I don't see the point of having friends or being around people who wouldn't accept me for who I am, you know?

I think that most people defer to hiding the fact they watch anime because it's seen as just cartoons.
In America, I grew up as a kid who watched Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes. A lot of humor, but nothing substantial.
I don't know if America has an equivalent in terms of animation geared more towards teenagers/young adults.
I know Cartoon Network used to have Toonami, and for a LONG time that's where I watched anime.. but
with the surge of information and sites like netflix/crunchyroll, anime has become much more accessible to everyone.

Getting back to the OP's topic, I don't think you should ever be ashamed, or try to hide what interests you even if it is weird,
because you are who you are today (someone pretty cool) because of these interests. Like anime, Love anime, it doesn't matter.
Enjoy what you love, and life will be awesome.

cheers.

Don't bring it up in regular conversation since nobody I know is interested, but I've got the anime DVDs and Blu-Rays sitting with the rest of my TV/Movie collection in the living room, so there's no effort to hide it either.

My roommate refers to it as "cartoon bullshit" so I don't see us ever relating to it lol.

I never talk about it with my friends cause they're not interested, they know I do and sometimes they'll ask what I'm doing and I'll just tell them watching anime if I am, it's not really a big deal. Or, cause I always keep my laptop open with the desktop wallpaper showing, which is usually anime girls or whatever, my parents ask about it and I'll tell them "oh it's a cartoon" cause they have no clue wtf anime is XD So they know I'm watching it haha. Again, not a big deal, who cares what people think about it.

I do not hide the fact that I watch Anime, if someone would ask me if I watch it I'd say yes but I never bring it up in conversations with people who are not interested in it. I have one friend who is into Anime but he doesn't talk about Anime that much dont know why that is probably ashamed off it idk.. hah

I would love to talk about Anime all day long if I had a friend who's more like me :P
But unfortunately where I live there are not many people who are into Anime soo its hard to come across someone who does.

Whoever asks me what my hobbies are gets to know.

I mean no offense, so please take none. But an attitude like that is very inviting to have your hobby ridiculed.

Hard to hide it when I work here! I find it fun to walk around with my bright orange shirt on and see people read that it says the number one source for Anime ":)
