I don't hind that I like anime or watch it, but at the same time most of the kids who watch anime at my school I don't really like since well there pretty much annoying. I have friends who watch anime and we usually talk on what we are watching while playing cards during lunch. I play Football and Lacrosse and yea sometimes my coaches tease me about it, but really if you tell your friends that you like anime and they don't accept it. I suggest getting new friends.

I dont really hide the fact. Its one of the things I try to encourage people to try watching even if it might not be for them.

I've never hidden my interests in anime but I've never advertised them really either. That all changes when I'm around like-minded people. In "normal" life situations however, I just keep it to myself because it's my personal life.

I've never hidden my love for anime/manga. Never! People may look at me weird when I'm looking at anime/manga but I don't really care.

I have a bad case of hiding the fact that I watch anime, and part of this is because when my friends and I go on netflix they usually bash an anime that I enjoy watching not knowing I watch it. It kind of sucks because there isn't really anyone I can talk to about anime. My only friend that knows I watch anime sort of frowns upon it, even though he used watch a lot too back in the day, he just says he got tired of it.

Nope, don't see a reason why I would have to.

Afterall, I've got a couple of friends that share the same interest as me.

I've never felt the need to hide it, but I also didn't get into anime until I was already in my 20's, so I guess by that point I was well out of the caring-what-everyone-thinks stage. And I mean, I've always had quirky interests (I was obsessed with Monty Python and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in middle school and high school), and my friends have always been aware of that.

I don't think all of my friends understand my fascination, BUT I do have a few who totally do so that's cool. And my husband is about 90% of why I was able to get into anime and manga in the first place, and we both cried in Kimi ni Todoke equally hahahaaha soooo. I'm pretty lucky to not feel too much peer pressure in this area I guess!

I'm the same way with sports and stuff, but yeah, I don't hide the fact that I watch anime, but I tend to not listen to my music out loud. I have a playlist of all my songs minus the j-pop ones, and vice-versa.

I used to try to hide it and keep it to myself. Me and my sister never used to be close siblings and one day I decided to ask her if she watched it, she doesn't watch it much anymore but after that we became more friendly and sometimes we hang out.
I still kinda hide it a bit from my parents, although I did show my dad a series or two that I loved and he said they looked interesting. Although he won't watch them.
I've never really told any of my friends that I watch although my best friend I finally decided to tell him, he's not interested in in at all really but he doesn't look down on me for it.
I do have one friend that like it though and when he comes over we will watch it and I try to get him to see new genres or series. He is kinda like me when i first started watching anime about 3 or 4 years ago, he only likes the action type anime, and he really only likes dubbed anime, but about 2-3 years ago when i was really getting into i strayed away from the dubs, the dubs just suck and the subs seem to fit better, the girls voices in dubs are too out of tone or something like that but also some dubs are good and were executed as perfectly as they could be.

I kind of hide it but sometimes i'll ask people if they like to start up a conversation or something, and if they don't like it that's the end of that subject and if they do like it we talk about some series we have seen, although I don't ask many people if they watch it cause i try to hide it

I do hide the fact that i love to draw anime characters and what not, when I'm at school i find the desk in the corner where no one is sitting and i draw anime girls and stuff like that and when someone comes near I'll close my folder and stop drawing for a while or start taking notes or something, if anyone was curious as to what some of my drawings look like you can check out my profile page on here, I have a couple posted on my page with a deviant art link

no ones gonna read all that ^ lol

My friends always make fun of it, but I'm still very open about my love for anime (: When I was younger in high school, I wasn't as open about it, but now that I'm older I freely post about my love for it on Facebook and everything.

I say be open about it, people all have plenty of things they do that others would think is dumb. Always take pride in what makes you happy.

I used to hide the fact that i watch anime when i was in elementary school and middle school, because my friends thought it was stupid. Then when i entered high school i just stopped caring what other people thought of my hobby and i've actually made more friends because of that. Now i feel more open and talk about the latest anime i've watched with my new friends along with my usual stuff.

Well, I guess if someone asked if I liked it, I would say yes. I don't talk about it all of the time, though.
