Post Reply Do you hide the fact that you watch anime?
Posted 4/29/13
No i have never in my whole life feel ashamed of people knowing that about me. :))
Because watching an anime is like watching a movie or tv series. Just a normal thing.

Nah, it's not worth hiding it but I also don't openly advertise it either. I mean, I have a few t-shirts, like Bleach and a couple Pikachu shirts, but who doesn't have a pikachu shirt nowadays with Hottopic always selling them? One of my good friends actually got me interested in anime (once I was old enough to realize what anime even was, though I watched quite a few series as a kid). Then again, my friends either like anime themselves or they don't care if I watch it and would even watch it with me if they're over at my place. Some of my online friends are different though and anime isn't one of their hobbies, at all. I know quite a few people who aren't even remotely interested in anything of Asian culture, yet I happen to love many things, especially Japanese things and in recent years have become obsessed with Kpop. Ever since I was an older teen, I began to have a fascination with Japan and along with that came music, anime and manga. I wouldn't say that anime and manga are a huge part of my life, as I tend to be more of a selective person and watch what appeals to me and not every single thing that comes out. However, it is increasingly a bigger part of my life and my friends wouldn't mind though I won't go to great lengths to have an ongoing in depth conversation with them about it. Especially if I know for a fact that the person I'm conversing with isn't interested in anime. I guess it also helps that my sister is very much into anime and manga, so I can always fangirl with her if I absolutely have to. ^^

I don't actively go out and tell people I watch anime, but if someone asks or if it somehow comes up like a casual "what do you like to do" I don't mind saying it I mean it's nothing to be ashamed of not like you're a serial killer or anything (no offence to the serial killers reading this... you know who you are... and I do too.

I used to hide that but when I got little bit older I became more "open" person. I mean watching anime is what I like to do on free time and if someone doesn't like it well why should I even care about someone having opinion on that subject. Basically I also got few close friends interested in anime too so it helped me to get rid of any sort of reason to hide that. Tho I must admit that sometimes even if I know it myself I feel a little bit too pushy on friends when I really want them to watch some series too which I want to hear their opinion on.

Anyway there is really no shame in that especially when some series got even more deep stories than movies which are rated R/18, right ?

Nope I do not. I get along with everyone and once people know me they always don't give a shit.

no, but if I find a fellow anime/manga fan I tend to walk away because once I get started talking about it I can't stop

I don't advertise it, but I don't really try to hide it either. And your real friends wouldn't care if anime was your hobby, cause they know it's your interest and they'll be cool with it. Forget the fake friends.

A lot of people at my high school knew I liked anime. It was kind of a rumor that went around I guess, but no one really cared. I still don't know how people knew but who cares? I don't go around saying I like anime to everyone nor do I hide it. I think people were cool with me liking anime because I look and act like a normal student who just liked different things. I didn't wear cat ears or make my hair look like anime hair. I just did what I liked but I knew when I could let go or when it was on a business type level.

I try to make it apparent, I want friends that are also Otaku so I make an attempt to make it obvious I'm an Otaku so they can approach me.

I personally don't understand why anyone would hide the fact they watch Anime, I've been watching anime since Robotech back in the 80's I have fond memories of rushing home from High school everyday to escape into a more exciting vibrant world, I'm sure there were others that did same thing, it would've been nice to know those people and have in depth conversations about the show. Nowadays there is much more anime available and huge international communities and forums where we all can get together and discuss our favorite anime characters and plot lines.I say let your Anime flag fly life is short and we shouldn't be ashamed of things that make us happy or entertain us in ways others do not understand.

Only some. My family knows all about DBZ but not other ones so much like Oreimo.
I'm not ashamed of it though.
