I just started watching anime, and I'm kinda, sorta addicted to it. I really only watch romantic animes such as Say "I love you". Is this ok? I started watching romantic animes one weekend, because I came across Inu x Boku SS, after that weekend I was literally hearing Japanese when I wasn't paying attention to what someone was saying. I kinda watch too much, but I am working on that at the moment, still is it weird?

No, this is terrible. An abomination. Seek professional help immediately.

Only joking. It's fine. There's loads of others like you, buddy. That's pretty much why sites like this exist. It's not weird. Everyone has their own tastes. I'm sure you'll live.

Not at all, everyone has they're own thing that they like to watch, there's no shame^^, like for example I watch one piece and I rewatched every current episode 3 times! And I'm proud of it!

If you ask me not at all. As long as you are enjoying what you watch, why does it matter? (I'm not trying to be mean and I'm sorry if I come off that way). People usually have their preferences,and if your preference is romance then it's fine. What makes you think that?

Thanks, it's just a friend of mine found out, and he told everybody, Since I go to a private school and there are 30 people in my grade, nobody kinda looks at me the same. I wasn't really that popular, because I am a little overweight, and the fact that I watched anime seemed to make my situation even worse... I have asked a couple of not as close friends what they thought, and they said it was weird. Nobody in my grade watches anime, and probably considers it taboo.

Not weird at all. I watch animes like "Say I Love You" all the time. One of my favorite genres to be exact is romantics.

I'd say no, because im 21 and im totaly addicted to romantic and romantic comedy animes, and i belive its because these animes speak very well about feelings, that other animes aint so good at, because most animes that aint romantic i find kinda shallow, when it comes to feelings, and when they first express any kind of feelings they aint realy feelings i can relay to, and this might only be me but another reason i think people like romantic animes is because i have very hard times when it comes to feelings, i dont show affliction toward people very well, espacially people i like, thought its very rare that i have someone i like, but when i do i cant show that person how i feel, because i dont know how... but as i said that just me, others might find it because they missed that early life crush, many might shrug it of like it was nothing but i belive it has a very deep effect on persons, because your a totaly diffrent person when your in love then you are at other times, and because of this it might be that people seek comfort in the romance of others, in this case romantic comedy. atleast thats what i belive.

Sorry for this post it might have left the subject at times, but it was just to make a point :)

and to answer your question simply. No i dont think its weird at all

Ooooh, that makes sense. Maybe it's from me watching it almost all of my life, but if I were you I wouldn't let it bother me too much. It seems like everybody thinks that "its too weird" or "it's creepy" or whatever, but it's those same people who never sit down and watch an episode or something. I have a friend just like you actually, whenever she went to a private school they all thought she was weird, but she kept watching whatever made her happy and eventually made a few friends at that school. (As you've already stated you weren't popular) I feel like if they pick on you/distance themselves from you because you are "a little overweight" then their opinion shouldn't matter to begin with. ^^; but that's just me...

People in other grades do, I think, but I honestly don't really like them as people. The way it works is no one really says anything to your face, but gives this gross look. I really only talk to friends.

well many people do watch anime, trust me, its only that many people dont talk about it in public because as someone said, many thinks its Taboo. but its far from, i'd say its far more taboo to watch reality tv shows, you sit there watching other people doing stupid stuff while you coplain about it... then why the fuck do you watch it if its sooo bad?

and yeah if you dont let it bother you about the fact that you watch anime, youll probably find some people that will try talking with you, because you show confidence in yourself and dosnt let other peoples oppinions sway you away from what you realy enjoy

I totally dodge the question with first post I don't think it's weird and majority of the people on this site will agree so you don't have to worry.

Well if I could help I would say to start looking for some groups/clubs and local anime conventions or ones close by. You wouldn't believe how many people you would meet. Another way is if you use the social media a lot, anybody you meet weather they are local or online ask if they are apart of any media groups.

I say this with experience because when I started watching anime I was in the same boat, but we hold a yearly anime convention on the island. I met a lot of people varying in age there. I joined a few media groups with the ones I got along with and now I'm acquainted with most anime lovers on the island

Don't worry man before I graduated Highschool almost everyone knew that I played "Pokemon TCG"
