Do you reveal to your friends/families that ur're an otaku? Well for me most of my friends do not know that im one. Its not that i do not want to share my interest in anime with them but its just kinda awkward because i think im the only one that likes anime so much to the extent that im an otaku. ;D

So share your thought on being an closet otaku if ur're one too! and hey who know we might find more friends to chat about our interests here. ^^

Nah I'm fairly vocal about it, and that alienates my friends.

I'm not a closet otaku, but I'm not so vocal about it as to shove it in people's faces. I'm just a normal fan.

Why would one hide such a thing. Almost all my schoolmates watch anime. We toss good shows back and forth.
My sister and her husband are currently watching Fullmetal Alchemist with me. He is a big anime/Manga fan too, not so much my sister she likes Avatar and FMA.
It's fun to have someone to talk to about anime IRL not just on forums.

I don't mind having people knowing of my anime liking, in fact I encourage it as a chance for people to understand me. Now don't get me wrong, I don't reveal fetishes, or anything weird that may be the reason why I watch anime, but I do allow them to get a chance to see it for them selves. Most of the time at least...

Sometimes I guess there just is no helping the population~

I'm not a closet anime fan, most of all my friends and family have some idea that I like it. It just sucks though because I have no one to really talk to about it outside of forums. They do have an anime club in college though.....

I'm not a closet anime fan but it rarely comes up in conversation with most of my friends a few have seen my collection of DvDs and have made comments but that's about it. If I said I'm an otaku they'd look at me dumbfounded not knowing what that means.

I do remember talking to someone in a college class about roku boxes and how I was looking into one because it can use both netflix and hulu plus crunchyroll on top of that. He was surprised when I mentioned crunchyroll and that I was an anime fan. It was kind of fun to have someone to talk about the shows with offline for a change but I never stayed in contact with him after that class. I was that old guy in class in my late twenties with all the people thinking it was cool I can go into bars...
