Hide the fact you watch anime?
Posted 6/23/14
I was going to say something badass like "All my friends know I watch anime and they do it too"

But yeah I do. Just to a few people though. Generally, I don't even talk about anime anyway so I don't feel like there's an issue.

As others said it just never comes up. If it does then I just say that I do and move on with life and they do to. I do wear an anime shirt here and there, but people don't care and I don't either. It is honestly nothing important. If someone ask why I watch it I just say "it is a form of entertainment."

I hid it (well, tried to) until I got into college, at which point I had mature friends and after that I almost wore the fact on my shirt. Should never have been ashamed in the first place though, as the people that tried to ridicule me aren't in my life anymore at all. Life lesson here; like what you want because twats don't tend to stick around

I've never hid it. In fact I've made a lot of friends because I was willing to talk about it. I have 2 friends I've known for 13 years now because I seen one of them had and anime usa bag and asked about it.

No, never on purpose. I simply don't advertise it. It's a personal hobby that I only engage in when I'm at home. I've never watched anime when around others, except for my brother (since he watches anime too) and my boyfriend.

If you're afraid of people knowing you watch anime, stop watching anime. Honestly you guys need self-confidence. If you have a good personality and your friends like you, them knowing you like anime won't make them look down on you. Come on now.

Nope I really don't care. I even watched Highschool DxD and HOTD in class , But most of the people I am friends with watch anime.

My family doesn't really care about what I do so say I'm kinda open with the anime watching thing even with my friends but even so the topic never comes up so I don't really talk about anime but I do with my sister, and she finds that really annoying because she hates anime but I just don't care.

Yes, I hide the fact I watch anime. I made the mistake of telling people before and I don't intend of doing it again. People may say that I'm a terrible person because I hide what I love but I care about my friends. They always stand by me no matter what I do so should I really be making their lives hard by allowing myself to get bullied? I care about my friends and I respect how they always stand by me so I stand by them. I'm not going to abuse the fact that they will stick up for me because that would make me a bad friend. You may hate me for wanting to try and make life easier for my friends rather than living openly but I care about them.

I'm quite a bit older than most anime public, so I do not feel the need to share it even to the kids who watch it as well. They would probably think of me as a pervy old man .

I wouldn't necessarily say I'm afraid, but it's not something I really willingly bring up in conversation unless it's directly relevant. Only a small handful of my friends watch anime and most of the others know I do. It just generally never gets discussed outside of those handful of friends.

Not really. I don't mention it to some but not for the reason that I'm uncomfortable with telling them about this part of me. In fact, most of the people I know don't mind when one watches anime since we grew up having some animes being shown in television. The reason though that I don't mention it at times is I don't feel the need to mention it. Although if it does come up, I don't mind sharing that part of me.

Sorry that was the stupidest thing I've ever read. Looks like you're just making excuses for you not having any self confidence.
