I don't hide it but I don't just come out and be like "HAIIII EVERYONE I WATCH ANIME" If I notice someone having some anime related I might approach them. Like at work I seen a picture of naruto on someones phone and I asked them if they watch Naruto or something

I dont hide my anime watching whatsover.
It actually fits my image. i play games and read books. but my love is anime and manga.
at school a friend and i sit and compare and contrast and just generally talk about it.
im not looked down upon by my peers because i am still social while doing my hobbies. i believe that is where the difference lies.
though a few friends do say im obsessed, thats not good.

I wouldn't say i hide it entirely, I have groups of friends where we do different stuff together so i don't talk about anime with my drinking buddies but i will with my nerdy friends i play video games with and go to anime conventions with.

In the Dating scene i do not mention it unless someone asks first. i just feel if you don't understand the Otaku culture you just think were a bunch of creepy pervs, so i think its something that i would introduce later after i got to know them more
although it would be nice to find a girl who likes all that nerdy stuff, incredibly hard to find in this rural community.

No need to hide something that good.

Whoever doesn't like it can keep their opinion to themselves.
but knowing my friends they wouldn't care. Probably even join
when I give them so awesome anime to watch.
Guide them to another world.

I'm a 35 (-ish) woman in the trades (I'm a welder). When the guys hear that I like anime they try to give me a lot of flack but it really doesn't bother me at all. I like what I like, just as they like what they like. And not all of my friends are as enthusiastic for it as I am either. I have a few friends who share my tastes and who I can talk about this series or that series with and there are some who roll there eyes at me when I start rambling on about it.

I've also gotten to a point in my life where I no longer feel the need to hide aspects of who I am. I am happy with myself and I think that comes along with time and experience. True friends may lightly tease you for your quirks, but they will never truly judge you for them. I imagine that some day you'll just start to realize that it's not something worth hiding. In fact, it's pretty darned cool.

After almost a year of not checking this discussion, I can't believe I was getting responses until even this year!! That's crazy, but I'm back...and I want to continue this conversation. Since then, lets just say..I've gotten a lot better. haha For example...this really cute girl who has no idea about anime asked me to hang out..what did I say? "Sorry, I just kinda feel like watching anime tonight" hahaha it was great

admitting your interests and celebrating them even though your peers might look down on you for that can be really hard for most people. no point in denying it. it takes strength to enjoy yourself regardless of the negative opinions of others, so congrats, op, for being brave like that. it doesn't come easily to everyone to say it doesn't matter, and making the choice to do that is awesome. i'm hesitant to admit to what i like because i don't enjoy sharing that with people i meet. it's a conversation starter and i'm not super fond of conversations. i'm the stoic coolkid (don't take me seriously, omg), so i don't have interests or passions, obvs. but really, i am unabashedly in love with anime, manga, k-pop, j-pop, and errthang else; it's okay to love things and to geek out over them. fight the good fight, op.

Awesome response

Depending on who I'm talking to. Mast of my main friends I don't hide because they watch anime to, same with my familyits just that they don't watch it.

My other really good friends I do hide it because, they don't even know what anime is and play basketball.

Heck no. It's so far out in the open, any room that someone would visit in My House would be a dead giveaway. And my house is kinda large.
