Well I suppose if I had friends who love anime then it wouldn't be a secret but since I'm a film student most of mine are film nerds instead of otaku lol. I don't tell them I watch anime but it's not a secret. If they ask I'll tell them but if not I don't see the point in telling them.

I keep it a secret, but if I have a reason to bring it up, I can openly talk about it, I have like 2 friends that also watch it so I can get my anime talks in with them, besides that, i feel no real NEED to tell anyone unless they ask me about it.

I don't nerd out on people but I don't give a fuck if people know I watch anime and I'm 40.... I can understand not telling random people about anime, but if you can't tell your friends you watch anime they're not real friends... or you're just a pussy who cares too much about what other people think....

If your friends can't accept that you like anime, you need better friends. It's how I look at everything.

By being open about everything I whittled down my friends to those who I actually want to be around. Ones who completely accept and support the fact that I'm a 23 year old Brony that loves Taylor Swift music and anime.

No not really...I mean, what's the point? Most of my friends know I watch anime anyway, and they don't really care.

I'm discreet about my fandom.

I want that schoolgirl PVC figure...but that'd make me perverted. So I have to work up to it. Grab that manly Goku Figure, follow that up with Vegeta, then quickly grab the Berserk figma.

WIth Guts in my collection, I'm officially deep enough to get out of the mainstream shounen, and work out a Zero and Megaman figure from Bandai, and then start grabbing the heavy stuff. the Evangelion Girls. Just the main two, grabbing the new girl is too greedy. And they have to be in the Pilot suits.

From there you can move on to magical Girls, and any chick in Armor. Saber is a prime example, if you don't own one saber you shouldn't call yourself an Otaku.

From there your free to move into popular School Girl figures. Haruhi, Nagato, Taiga, a Monogatari series girl.

THEN you can start randomly grabbing those off-series Anime figures from your seasonal Anime. Like what's her name from what's that anime. And even whats her personality from that one Visual Novel Turned anime.

after you got about 3 of those, you're able to grab a sexy PVC.

Since you collected manly figures first, people don't suspect a thing. They just think "oh, he started out with the normals, then he got into figure collecting" and don't think "wow, this guys desperate for little plastic school girls with removable skirts...what a sicko"

The fools, I've fooled them like fooly fool fools!

OOOOOOOOR, get some Gundam Model kits. You're a Gundam Fanatic, and nobody can talk shit to Gundam Fanatics.

I convert others to anime. I don't tell strangers, though. I'm fine with wearing an anime/Japanese picture in public, though. I mean, I've cosplayed in public before.

I've managed to get 8 people that've never heard of anime before hooked onto death note, so i was quite pleased with that.
same again, I'm pretty open about it, but I wouldn't feel the need to bring it up in conversation, if someone asks me about it with genuine interest then i'll probably nerd out like there's no tomorrow haha

It's a secret that I knew more than anime while hanging around in an anime club.

You can't force someone to like what you like. The more you push, the more they naturally resist.
You just have to strike their curiosity and have their attention. Booyah!
