My friends do not know I like anime. That is the simplest way to avoid complications.

My friends aren't bothered at all about my love of anime. I can talk about it when I deem appropriate and as long as I don't go overboard even my friends who don't watch it don't mind.

Now, when I talk about the latest H-Scene in some eroge I am playing, it is a different story. That makes some of my friends uncomfortable real quick.

So what about everyone else? Do you have annoying friends that just dont like what they dont understand, or do you have reasonable and nice friends?


Don't sound like friends to me. Some of my friends watch anime from time to time.The ones who don't never tease or talk crap to me about it and don't mind if I bring it up.

several friends of mine simply got curious and wanted to watch one with me. I started them out on things like death note and full metal and they loved it. so now i give them a heads up if something that comes out that caters to their taste. These friends however are scattered through the country now pursuing their careers. I've made a few friends around home since then but with being in a rural area they're pretty judgmental about it. They try to look the other way but if one comes over while I'm watching a comedy they always have a sly comment about how stupid it is.

The only common interests I have between my friends are video games and women. I can't talk about anime around them at all. They have only seen FullMetal Alchemist and Dragonball Z so they think that anything else is complete garbage. It really pisses me off. I really want friends who like the same stuff as me

They just shrug it off. They are not the ones to judge me. I do have some that have taken a liking in anime though.

What friends I had were okay with it, even if they weren't, I wouldn't care. I like what I like and I won't change it for the sake of keeping company. Then again that's probably why I don't have any friends currently. But if your friends are kicking you from Skype and being that way about it, I wouldn't count them as real friends. Friends accept you for who you are and what you like, if they think you talk about it too much they should politely ask you to talk about it less. Not that hard.

I have a few that I talk about it to since they watch it as well the others know I watch it but since they aren't interested in it I don't talk to them about it.

My friends have had a discussion about how "weird" anime is, whilst not knowing that I love it so I just keep it to myself! I don't mind though, personally I think they're missing out. I have met one person who likes anime but after one conversation our opinions clashed so much that I found it was easier to not talk about it!!

PS - ALL my friends, family and co-workers know i LOVE anime. I have figures on my desk at work (totoro's), I recently tried to bring my best friend of 28 years into anime for the 1st time, we have everything in common (video games, sports, starwars, you name it) where we differ is anime. He agree to try Kuroko no Basuke (since he loves basketball) i figured it would be good sports anime. He stopped watching my DVD set after the 1st episode... End result, anime is NOT for everyone, but i have to praise him for trying (even if it was one episode).

I'm not ashamed of anime, i gloat and talk about my anime whenever my geekness comes into question (if a co-work asks "what did you do this weekend" and then since they know i'm a geek they wont give me a chance to answer before saying in a cute mocking way "uhh i stayed in my house and played video games and watched anime".. i will always respond in detail to make them laugh more (not laughing at me but with me). Never be ashamed of things you enjoy, my anime is a badge of honor, i'm remotely handsome i believe, i enjoy sports, video games, girls and anime. If i didnt tell you i was a geek than you wouldnt know it. But i love my anime, my games, i'm a geek and i'm totally proud of it and will flaunt it and stick up for my obsessions=)

So be proud people - dont shy away or be embarrassed. Dont look to the floor when you want to talk about your anime, look people right in the eyes and smile proudly.. Be different, be unique and dont even be ashamed.

You guys are awesome. <3

I can't make friends with people who dislike anime. It's the only subject I have extensive knowledge of, so if I can't have that first conversation about entertainment with them, I don't have anything else to say.
I'm just a bundle of Asian influences, with anime mostly notably on the surface, defining things from how I dress, to the foods I'll try learning how to cook first, to how ill handle various situations and obstacles. Disliking anime is like disliking my whole existence. It's like denying a theatre kid of singing and wild, hyperbolic reactions.
