I don't hide it but at the same time time I don't advertise it either. If someone asks I'll tell them

No, but ignorance is still out there though. I do sort of get it, the more extreme crowd don`t help with it either as that is what some of them will think about you. Still, I met a lot of popular people and attractive people that don`t really give a damn about it either.

Nope, no reason to. My dvds/blurays are on a bookshelf right at eye level and I've shown some friends (that don't watch anime) some stuff.

No, just about everyone I work with either watches anime or reads manga.

I know exactly how you feel. I'm so passionate about anime and want to share it with the people I know and care about, but most people react with mockery or harassment. I think it's important to find a good balance between being confident in defending in educating about what you love, but also not to become hateful or obnoxious towards people who do not share your interests

Won't "hide" it... But definitely don't volunteer the information.

Unless its a close friend, or someone that I know would appreciate the series/story/etc...

I don't particularly hide it as much as remain discrete about it with non anime watchers. I'm not ashamed to let them into my room where they'll no doubt see my merchandise. It's also obvious to anyone I know through social media.

Nope not in the slightest. One of the first questions I usually ask a person is if they watch anime.

If there is an anime shirt or type of merchandise I really like I'll wear it in public.

Not at all since i really just don't care what other people think, i can like whatever the hell i want
It's not something that I'm ashamed of tbh
I have no problem talking about it publicly but I also don't announce 'oh GUyZ I lOV AniMEeE!!!' hAhAA
I only talk about it when it's brought up by another person, and I don't really like making people uncomfortable talking about it if they clearly have no interest in it.

I treat anime like any other show: what stays on screen, stays on screen. I don't discuss it with others who's never seen it with me nor do I walk around with a shirt or any other merch with the show logo or characters. I don't ask people either if they watch it or not. If it just comes up sure I'll discuss, but that's it.

Anime is like a sort of guilty pleasure for me. I am an average 21 year old male college student living in the dorms. I have been online my whole life (most of it at least lol) and I have made many friends who share different interests in the dorms. People I have never truly would have considered making friends with. Some of them have become closer friends than than from my highschool. Do they think its weird that I watch anime? Maybe. The ones i watch (fairy tale / One piece / Naruto ) to name a few that Ive watched while friends are around.

It gets a little awkward and I tend to explain that it doesnt happen often when ecchi scenes pop up or something like that. But overall, I dont really get embarrassed (except for my DEEP guilty pleasures like romance anime: AnoHana, Angel Beats, Clannad, SAO). Its different for everyone, I just dont like people seeing the 'sentimental/soft/romantic' side of me.


I feel like I've just been summed up in this single post. Thank you.

I don't really hide it. Some of my friends know I watch it but non of them are legit anime friends so I can't watch it with them.
