So i got to thinking the other day.

It would be really cool to have a universal anime symbol that people wear. Like a ring, necklace, wrist band, etc.

That way it would make identifying people who watch anime and are fans more identifiable to other people. That way you can just walk to that person and start talking to them about anime/manga.

I think it would be a great way for people to meet other people and be more sociable.

Opinions??

Can't you just buy a shirt with something from a show on it?
I thought they made plenty of clothing.

While I doubt there would ever be a universal symbol, it isn't that uncommon I have seen to wear brand clothing or something, like someone wearing an Attack on Titan jacket with the symbol on the back or as a badge, or using a backpack/messenger back with some Anime's logo on it (I have seen AoT, Fairy Tail, and... one other but the name is evading me atm).

It is at least one thing you can do, and if you like the series as well, if someone recognizes it and talks to you, chances are, they are a fan of that series as well. From there you can attempt to drive the conversation to other Anime to see what they like.

Only problem being, from my experience, and from what I see others say, a good portion of Anime fans seem to be completely anti-social and would rather not be sociable with others, even if they are fans of Anime. At least not in person, they'd rather do it on the web.

The brigade leader armband, of course! its bright orange and easily recognizable! Plus many people know it just by sight lol Maybe having it say "SOS" might work better than the Japanese writing, though.

But if we're talking something more "neutral" then I really don't know. I'm not sure there's any symbol that's recognizable by everyone, and even if there was, i'm sure not everyone would agree to it since the anime community is wondrously diverse.

Having a flag would be pretty cool too lol.

Just wear the geekwear, it works wonders. I've had customers start conversations with me just because they recognized my Triforce wristband, or Happy lanyard.

The answer is simple...there isn't a universal anime emblem.

Just get an anime themed shirt, hoodie, jacket or whatever if you want to be more flagrant. If you want to be more subtle, maybe some accessories like a necklace, ring or cell phone strap. There's really no need for a universal symbol. Most people can recognize "anime" stuff. I doubt it'll be much of a conversation starter anyway. It's like if you're a fan of a particular sports team, wearing that team's stuff doesn't necessarily mean other fans of that team will all of a sudden come up to you and start a conversation. If you really want to find other people that enjoy anime, go to a con or something.
