I decidedly do not hide it. I am a very impressionable person, so the things I watch/read/listen to really rub off on me. Since I spend at least half my day watching anime I tend to act very much like a character in a high school romcom. However, I am also a very sociable person, and if the person that I'm talking to simply isn't interested in that line of conversation I won't push it. I am a unique individual in the fact that I am completely comfortable in what I enjoy (Being an Otaku, Brony, Furry, and Christian) and don't feel the need to change my likes or dislikes dependent on what's quote-unquote "Popular", but can also get along with anyone. My friends have labeled me "The Hipster That Hates Hipsters".

I watch the shit out of anime and I definitely don't hide it around my friends or family or co-workers or anything. It's like listening to a certain genre of music or smoking a certain brand of cigarettes -- it's just a part of me and my personality. Deal with it.

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.


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


I got bullied in early 1st year and hardly noticed it but my friends were getting embarassed. Friends that stick by you no matter what you do are hard to come by. Are you saying that I should have told my friends that I didn't care how they felt about me getting bullied?

We stand by each other through good and bad. They're fine with me liking what I like but I shouldn't make their lives hard just because we're loyal to each other.

I've never cared to run around screaming "Hey you stranger, I love anime!", but I certainly don't hide it. I regularly go to anime cons and I spent most of my breaks at my old job watching anime on my phone, regardless of who may be in the room. Though I may have lucked out with coworkers... since its usually a group of 10+ people that i have/currently work with that i go to cons with. It was also one of the guys that I work with that came up too me after the movie Frozen released and just about demanded that I go watch it. Hard to get picked on or made fun of if these are the kinda folks you are working with.

Its not that I hide it, its just not a discussion thats ever really brought up. If it is brought up though, then I go all out. Why should i be ashamed about something I find entertaining.

At times I do blast various anime songs when im working out or in my car, so i think that says something lol.

I don't hide it but i don't go out of my way talking about it. If im in a conversation with someone and anime gets brought up then ill talk about it, beside that though i don't walk around with anime gear so their wouldn't be a way someone would really know, the closest thing i have is a league of legends lanyard which sometimes gets attention of people. I don't think people should hide anime though screw what other people think.

I have a range of anime that is considered "ok" to watch around certain people in my life. I don't mind the ecchi stuff around dad, I try to not watch possible incest stuff around sister, I can only watch romance around mum, I can't watch comedy around other anime friends, and i don't watch ANY anime around those that can't understand anime and hentai are two different things (all my non-anime friends).

I don't hide my anime watching, nor do I wear a big, "I WATCH ANIME" shirt - literally or metaphorically - either.

As for your dad, my parents and older family members have all enjoyed the films from Studio Ghibli. Perhaps your dad would find Spirited Away charming and creative. Princess Mononoke and Grave of the Fireflies are other good options too. They can ease the unfamiliar into the world of anime quite effectively.

As for friends, most of my friends watch or have watched anime and are cool with it.

I didn't necessarily lie about it, I just didn't mention it to my personal trainer when I was talking to him about the convention I went to. He's just so intimidating sometimes.

Why?
I only hide hentai because it is like hiding porn.
