Why would I hide something that I enjoy and is a huge part of my interests/personality?
You don't like me cause of it? Good, I don't like you either.

I do depending on the situation. If it's someone who I've known for years, then no. But if it's a person I'm just meeting, I don't come right out and say, "Omgash, I love anime!".

I never hide it at all my parents don't care what i watch but that might be due to been 19 so its not really their choice, i have even had them in the room talking to me while my anime is still on except the rude ones as this would be inappropriate, i am also very lucky as all my friends and my sister as well as online friends that i talk to and see/talk to daily love anime or just watch it as another thing to watch when they are bored. I have watched anime while in college as well as many anime music videos i get some strange looks and get teased not made fun off just friendly messing about they don't try to stop me watching it and i don't make them try and watch it, you will get some people who hate it with a passion but these are very rare. Never try and hide the things you like from people, don't be someone your not because the people who actually want to know you or become friends wont care about what you like or dislike or like i have mention previously don't care at all either way.

I find in general that people (especially at work) are nonplussed or don't care, so I dont' bring it up.

I guess though, there's a difference between 'not proclaiming it constantly' and 'hiding it'.

I talk about anime with anyone if it ever comes up in our conversations, but if it never comes u then i dont bring it up. I will never be embarrassed or hide that I like anime though.

Yes and no.

I might bring it up in conversation with people around my age, but around older ones or most of my relatives, no.

My Mom knew that I watched Toonami as a kid, like, all the time. I don't know if she knew that I was watching cartoons from Japan. I'm not completely sure if she knows now.

I embrass it and don't mind of others thoughts, to some at first I look like a polite techy with a button up shirt, but be warned because under those buttons will always probably be a hatsune miku shirt.

Honestly, I'm pretty sure most people wouldn't even want to her it. They're not going to get any of the references so it'd be like talking to a wall.

I'm 24, out of college and no I don't hide the fact that I watch Anime. My coworkers know, my friends and family know too. Some coworkers watch Anime, a few of my friends watch it, and so does my brother. Everyone I know is pretty accepting all while being very different people. Most of the people I know love movies, some of them love sports (I don't), and a fair amount play video games. Although, not everyone likes the same things. The less you hide about yourself, at least from what I've experienced, the better, and the people that matter are the ones that stick around.

Just don't forcefully shove your interests in their faces and expect them to share a fondness on the spot. They don't have to be fine with you liking Anime, or even understand the reasons why. As long as it doesn't skew their perception of who you are, and they don't reign down personal judgement, they should be fine and accept it.

No need to hide something like Anime.

I didn't necessarily hide it; I just stopped watching it because has I got older I noticed the stereotype of kids who watch anime,,,, but since my friend introduced me to AoT, I'm obsessed again, and I don't hide it! I'm sure people still think I'm weird, but hey whatever!

I don't hide it. I just don't mention it often. I usually do anime references like "Plan C" while doing the gesture and if I see a twinkle in someone's eye then I strike.

Edit --
In my last semester of college I told everyone that I was a ghost and I couldn't graduate until I had a fulfilling school life. I had a few smiles, but no one ever talks nerdy to me.

I don't really go out and say that I like it either. The only way i'll tell someone that I like it is if we're close friends or has told me that they like it.

And if anyone finds out that I like it...So what? it's not bothering them so I don't see the big deal.

I understand what you're saying. People usually tend to look at anime as lame, or that only nerds look at that stuff. I'm heading to college, and well, I don't really talk about anime with my friends. If they don't like it, I don't talk about it. I haven't really discussed an anime with a real friend yet. I guess that my friends might be like you used to be. For some reason, they don't say if they watch anime or not.
