I'm not quiet about it, and if people ask; i'll admit it. LOL
My friends like to tease me about how big of a dork i am watching anime, but i don't really care.

I almost never talk about it. No one I know watches anime except for my little sister. I do have some subtle cues though. I wear some T-shirts the are subtle references to anime. Only the people who have watched them will know. If someone comments on it, I will actively talk about it. Other than that, I say nothing about it. Too many people ridicule anime lovers.

Many people in New York (where Ilive) are idiots who want to be "gangsters" or think being African American is "cool" so as far as im concerned I should be the one making fun of them (which I do =] ) rather then anyone make fun of me , not that it happens anyway. My co workers know I watch anime and they don't really say anything.

I don't really talk about it much, only when someone brings it up.

I never talk about it. All my friends don't like it, so I just don't bring it up.

I say I can be vocal about it. People I know know I like anime because of all the anime stuff I have but no one really cares because I don't always talk about it. Like if you're cool about it and not a weeb then most people don't really care. At least in my case.

Depends on the shows. Almost everyone knows i watch anime and that i am an avid fan of anime; but i almost rarely talk about it with other people unless i know they enjoy it as well.

I don't talk about it; mostly due to the misconception of what anime is.

Because of recent and past media exposure, most non anime watchers, or people ignorant to the cultures of other countries, believe anime to be "hentai" and "cartoon porn". While hentai is eroge in nature, people often generalize all anime to be eroge; mostly because of the ignorance of the mass media and the common news viewer and their inability to separate two different types of animations.

Depending on the situation and the group of people i am with, i will talk quite openly about anime, but other times i wont.


That's pretty much the way I look at it.

I used to be more vocal about my love for anime but even I started to think it was getting to be annoying. Plus add in the misconceptions that people have about anime, I figured I need to expand my horizons.

Now I just talk about it if people ask.

One of the guys I work with is pretty open about his politics and sometimes it's just annoying as hell when you get "INFORMED" whether you want to be or not. People can be that way about most anything, even anime, I try not to be "that way."

I don't really open up my love about anime to a lot of people unless they discuss it or somehow bring it up.

I'd say I'm pretty vocal... I think... Probably......

I'm actually very vocal about my love of anime. I'll tell anybody, I don't care haha. And I'm being very serious about this. Everyone who knows me knows that I love two things with equal passion - anime and pro wrestling - and they know I'll talk their ear off about both if given the chance. And even people who don't know me, at first at least, will quickly find out about my passions. I don't see the point in hiding what I love, because there's always the chance that the person you're talking to will be into it as well and if you hide it then how are they ever going to know that you like it too? And now I feel as though I'm about to start rambling, so I'm going to stop

Vocal? With me, it's more like a radio silence. Unless someone else mentions it, I just stay silent about it, besides with my very few close friends.

I tell anyone, even if they don't like anime, that I'm a die-hard anime fan and no one cares, they especially wouldn't care if they had no idea what anime is, so what's to worry about? Who makes fun of people who watch cartoons when most people do even if it isn't anime? Last Christmas, everyone went to see Frozen and who doesn't watch Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball or Regular Show? Also, I don't think it's worth getting to know someone who makes fun of an innocent hobby of yours and why would you assume people would judge you for watching anime anyway? Who are you hanging out with? They sound like mean people.

If anyone asks what my hobbies are, I just mention anime, there's not much advice I can give you. I never usually have to wait for anyone ask because I listen to Kpop, Jrock, have Monkey D. Luffy as a key-ring on my bag and often wear anime inspired clothing that I, sometimes, buy from this website. People just guess. I have no shame for something I love so much, you should be the same :)


I'm pretty much the same way in my interest in anime.


Great! There should be more people like this! It's easier to find friends who like anime if you tell everyone you like it, I made the mistake of not doing that until my 4th year of secondary school. When I did tell people, I found out that 90% of my friends had been watching anime since they were, like, 9 but didn't tell anyone, it's so funny because all that time I'd wish I'd have someone to talk to about the latest Naruto episode or a new anime I just finished watching. :')

I feel like I am a like a flower bud, I have meaningless conversations with multiple people daily (being a bartender) but the second I find out someone likes anime, I bloom, and they get a glimpse of who I really am, and the passion I have. I have to admit to being pretty vocal about it, but I am equally vocal about my love for scifi and video games, so hopefully I am a bit more well-rounded? I won't normally admit it to strangers, but everyone close to me knows I am addicted, which is good because they understand if I need a day off to just binge watch anime or game all day!

People like friends and family all know I'm into it since my home is full of figures and other anime goods. Some friends I have are also fans family just ignore my love of funny Japanese cartoons XD. As far as anywhere else it's like all my hobbies if somebody else is into the same things I'll talk about it but I'm not out to convert anyone people can discover their own likes and dislikes in life without people telling them what to like.
