I'm sure I'm like a lot of people I don't hide it it just never comes up. I only have one friend who watches anime and he only watches dubs and dubs only, which is fine thats whatever. No one I know would see me any differently I wouldn't think. So I don't hide it I just don't flaunt it to people who could care less.

I hide it as much as possible from anyone possible, other than a few friends that also watch. I am not ashamed to admit this one bit.

No, all of my friends know that I watch anime. I will say that I refrain from discussing or watching certain animes around people though. It's not because I'm ashamed of it, but because I'd rather not try to explain what To Love-Ru or Highschool DxD are about to my girlfriend... not like she'd understand the plot anyway... heh.

I don't feel the need to hide it. I like to watch anime and don't really care what people think. Everybody likes what they like and there no reason to hide what your into.

I don't hide the fact that I watch anime from anyone. If anything, I try to make people watch it. I don't really care about people's opinions of me anyhow, and nobody seems to mind that I watch it.

No, in my first period which I'm a teacher assistant that doesn't really need to do anything, I watched ways to occupy myself so I watched my anime in that class in front of people. It wasn't a big deal and nobody cared.

I used to think it was worth hiding. I hid it from my friends and family. But since then I've completely gone the other way. I've stopped caring what others think. Now granted I'm not the kind of person who buys figurines or does cosplay (nothing against anyone who does that, just not my thing.) but I do have a solid handful of wall scrolls I put up in my "man cave" now to put this in perspective I watch a lot of light hearted anime so I have things such as Heaven's lost property/Kill la Kill wall scrolls (not super ecchi but to someone first seeing it I guess it could be shocking). I've received numerous negative remarks about having them up and around for all to see. But to be honest if someone can't accept that I enjoy stuff like that, then they won't really make it as a friend of mine.

In fact I guess you could say I'm more open about telling people about it then I ever thought I would be. Because for the 99/100 people I tell about it who look down on me for it, it would be so worth it if I just found the 1/100 who tried it and shared that interest with me. But I guess for now I'll keep searching for that 1/100!

Noooo!! Why hide something as AMAZING as Anime!!?? everyone knows i watch and read anime... that doesn't effect the way my friends and other people look at me?? People that believe that have trust issues with themselves and need more self confidence... just being honest here.. i mean dont be one of those persons that preaches anime to random people now that will get you looked at in a dirty way... those people are super annoying -_-!! just let it flow out smoothly in a conversation with people you have and never hide something you like doing form others just because you feel like they relationship towards you will change.. just keep being yourself and keep doing what you enjoy.. My CR people..

I haven't hid it from anyone but I don't talk about it either. If I see someone is interested I talk about it, even knowing other people can hear it x)

When I started with fruits baskets I hid it. I think I was in 6th grade at the time. However, there were other ones, such as dennou coil, mushi-shi, and junni kokki that I did not hide and that my sister was showing to my brother and I. I'm not sure what made me hide that i was watching others. In high school me and my friends watched some anime together as well... My school was full of people who liked anime and the respected it as long as you weren't in the club which wasn't run well at all. So after seeing others either draw anime in their notebooks or talk about shows that others should watch I felt more able to do the same. I don't actively talk about it, but I would if someone else brought it up. I do actively draw though, and most people like them so i haven't run into any problem or anything...

I suppose after saying all that, my answer would be I used to hide shows I watched (they weren't always anime actually...) but then did not as I decided that there shouldn't be any shame in showing anyone who you are. (... okay that sounds corny...)

No, not particularly. It almost never comes up, though, because it's usually irrelevant.

As for me, i do not hide it. i don't necessarily show it off but i do have subtle accessories with me, like a phone case and maybe a messenger bag, hoping i can one day meet a friend in this cow poke town that also like anime.
