most of my friends don't watch anime.
but when i tell the friends of mine that do watch anime, it's easier to talk to them and stuff.

My friend only likes one anime and that's Attack on Titan. He saw me watching Magi one time and he sort of laughed and said that looks gay. But other than that, he doesn't have a problem w/ me watching it nor judges me. We're still good friends.

Mixed. A few like it. The others may disapprove or even mock me. I've also seen indifference.

What matters is that I see it for what it's about and enjoy it for myself while not being so concerned with the opinions of other people.

Many of my friends do watch at least some anime. The ones who don't don't really care if I talk about anime.

Even my friends that aren't into anime aren't dicks about it. They'll make jokes, but they'd never kick me out of a Skype call lol.

They can care less. I don't even force my friends to watch it for my sake.

They laugh and stuff and mess with me about it. But they don't do it in a mean way, more in a way of "friendly teasing" if that makes sense. They like me for me so that's cool. I have question though and hopefully someone can answer: How do you go about seeing if someone likes anime? Like someone you just met and are starting to become friends with? Or someone you have a crush on? Like what's a good strategy to push the subject to see but not be totally straight out with it?

None of my friends like anime... it's impossible to bring up the subject bc they have no idea... I'm going to attempt to bring them into Attack on Titan once the Blu Ray hits.... i wont bother trying to get them to read the subs, so hopefully the english dub is at least half as good.

FYI - i refuse to listen to english dub on any anime, it's horrid and i cannot enjoy it for the life of me....

Nearly all of my friends watch anime, read manga or do both. I prefer to read manga. So I guess my friends reacted positively when I told them that I watch anime/read manga?

People call me weeabo and say stuff like "You'll never be as kawai as them"
That's when I say NO. As long as senpai believes in me, I can do anything!

I've only actually told one of my friends that I love anime, which is my best friend and he didn't react like I thought he was.... he just said "oh cool" haha.

I don't hide it, but I work with a bunch of 'old people' (older than me) so they would seriously trip if I really discussed what I watch (they still watch broadcast TV, like ABC lol). As far as my friends, they tolerate it as much as I tolerate their music (Dave Matthews) so I really can't blame them.

I do have a teenager at home, so he is held hostage for some of the more mainstream shows. He doesn't bitch too much, so I guess he is pretty open minded. I even dragged him to a local Con, which blew his mind.

My friends.. well they don't care all too much, some of them enjoy a few anime series here and there but I'm am the anime fiend by far.
They may roll their eyes sometimes, but I actually get them listening and interested in series from time to time.

I'm always a little apprehensive about mentioning anime around new friends/co-workers, but I've been surprised recently by how well people accept it. Out of my 3 cube mates 1 thinks I'm a freak but doesn't look down on me for it, the other 2 are cool with it, 1 even watches some anime them self.

Although I do remember buying anime in stores way back in the day, to further show my age this was at Suncoast buying 1 DVD for $29.99 which had 3 episodes on it, and getting some strange looks. Then again the more I think about it the more I realize I probably have gotten a lot of strange looks or people thinking I'm weird for liking anime to the extent I do, but on the other hand I don't really care what they thought since it was my hobby, not theirs.
