Im a highschool student. I have nobody to talk to in my highschool that watches anime. How many people do you know that watch anime? I usually hang out with people who are on my hockey teams and people I snowboard with. I dont really tell anybody that I watch anime except a couple of my close friends who dont really judge me for it they just think I'm a bit weird for liking it. (This makes me mad cause it shows how shallow-minded some people can be)

I heard a few people talking about anime but they tend to be the shy antisocial kids. I cant find anyone in my social group who enjoys anime like I do. Anyone else have similar issues?

Not a whole lot.

At my workplace there are probably only 3 or 4 of us who watch anime / read manga.

Just casually bring up some of the "big" name anime shows and see if anyone bites. If not, too bad. Or you know, you could just ask if anyone from your "social group" are into it, I highly doubt anyone's going to be like LOLUWATCHANIMEWHATAFAGGOT

Growing up in Japan it was pretty easy for me to talk to others about anime, though when I did live there it was either between DBZ or One Piece with some Gundam conversations as well. But when I moved to America it became clear that most people I went to school with didn't watch anime until one day I decided to wear a DBZ shirt for gym class then had a lot of people start talking about the show, made a lot of friends this way. Another thing to add is that most of my Filipino relatives watch anime, and most if not all Filipinos' that live where I live now also watch anime and are easy to become friends with. (Pinoy's stick together! <3)

One trick me and my buddies used to get some of our friends to watch anime is by asking them to hangout but when we head to one of our houses we start off by talking about TV shows followed by talking about anime and making it sound interesting, that or if we go to someone's house that has a lot of anime related objects in his/her room we just start talking about them and our favorite anime. In the end it works for the most part, we follow-up by suggesting an anime marathon of any particular show.

There's a group of maybe 15 in my school that I hang out with that also watch anime. My close friend is the one who got me into anime, him, my boyfriend, and my friend Liz are the only close friends of mine who watch Anime. Me and my friend (Liz) I think are the only two females who aren't of Asian decent in my school that like anime, there's not many girls that love it like we do... <3 #Evangelion

Most of my high school friends liked anime. There was a pretty big anime club at my school, and I knew most of the kids there (though I never went to the club, myself).

I actually met a few people in my arts class in college who like anime. We have formed a small brigade.

Of everyone I know in the real world, only two openly admit to watching/liking anime. And one of them is related to me.
Though I never really bring it up in a conversation.... so maybe I just don't know. I know a few of my friends have the "Anime is stupid" attitude. So for that reason I never bring it up. Everyone else.... not sure.

A lot of people i know, i'm fortunate enough to live in an area where like everyone at least knows what anime is, i know like 50 people who like anime and have 4 close friends who love it. although i'm the most addicted out of all of them XD. I make my friends who watch a good amount of anime look like scrubs. Geez i'm to addicted >.>

I feel you, most of my friends are like that too. That's why I only tell close friends who don't care as much.
