Those don't sound like friends to me.

My friends personally know I watch and like Anime, it isn't exactly a big secret: 2 SAO wallscrolls [hooray for sales at cons] on the wall, an Anime artist calendar [Kantoku], a Saber nendoroid, and over a 100 Manga.

I talk about Anime to a few of my friends who also like Anime, though it is clear compared to them I am a bigger fan, mostly since I have more free time to throw into it. The friends of mine who don't like Anime don't give me shit about it, or only lightly joke about it too me, which then I usually have my rebuttals for stuff they like ready, usually it seems the friends who say they don't like Anime are more interested in learning about it at least in my social circle.

If any of my friends bashed me for liking what I like, they would no longer be my friend. I don't have time to deal with petty idiots who only put others down for their likes and dislikes.

My friends either don't care or enjoy anime, too. That's why they're called my 'friends'.

My friends who aren't too into it, are fine with it hehe ~ They accept however much I go on about it and are often happy that I'm so excited. They're also often interested in random things about it ~ And with those who love it too, we get excited and hyped up together C:

Friends? What are those? To me a true friend is someone you would risk your life for to help if they was in trouble. I know a few people that I would do that for but I don't know anyone that would do that for me. #lonely I do have people that I would call acquaintances that don't watch anime but they usually listen and laugh because I'm usually telling them about something funny I have watched. Then there are a few that do watch anime but they seem to react the same way.

Sadly I've only got one friend who will talk with me about it and we share our thoughts about shows we're watching. My best friend rolls his eyes whenever i suggest a show he might like and completely blows it off like its odd that I watch this stuff. Too bad for him, because hes big into sci-fi and what not and would probably enjoy some of the stuff i suggest.

I had gone through an anime phase when I was younger. Quit it while I was in middle school. When I got to high school I lettered in two sports and played a third. I had not even checked on anything anime, except for playing the new Naruto game. Then three months ago I was bed ridden with sickness, and I decided to check in on Naruto. I had quit keeping track before the Shippudden had started. Watched everything that was remotely Naruto related. My friends are jocks who only love sports and Will Ferrell comedies, but then again who doesn't. I just know they will never let me live it down. That is why I keep it hidden.

Some think it's strange but what I enjoy is just part of who I am. They like things that I don't like and I like things that they don't like; we never cut each other off over things like that.
Actually once I've shown them it's not all hentai some have also started watching it.

If people cut you off over something you enjoy, then they don't accept you and I wouldn't count them as friends.

My friends know but do not really care. I make it obvious that I like anime, however I do not talk about it unless they also like it. (Most people see what is on my facebook, pins, posters, etc. The extent of my true/crazy fandom comes out depending on how deep they are into anime. Example: if they only like shounen, I will keep my conversations to shounen. The more they like, the more I talk about my other tastes/feelings of anime in general).

Anime is part of who I am. It's just that not everyone is interested~and that's okay. Everyone has their own interests

I've actually recommend it anime to some friends who aren't really into anime... One of them just told me that he doesn't want to get into anime, because he's always busy working and stuff, but he didn't say anything negative about it. Another one said exactly this " fuck all other anime! Dragon Ball Z is the best and because of that, I don't need to watch anything else!" lol I just started laughing. xD
I only have 2 friends who have actually seen more than 10 anime, those are the ones I mostly talk to when it comes to anime... Most of my friends are huge sports fans BTW, so that's what we mostly talk about haha

Luckily most of my friends watch anime or did watch it. We're planning on going to convention pretty soon.

They don't care. I never bring the topic up because there's nothing to say, though.

I never talk about it because they always compare it with cartoons for 6 year old kids. And then I have to explain everything to them and it isn't worth my time...
