just... ask if they are into anime?

I am going to be really blunt here.


This whole "hiding your power level" shit, is fucking stupid. "Hiding your power level" refers to hiding your love for anime.

No one gives a shit if you watch anime, the only people who will judge you are other anime fans.

Just go and ask someone if they are into anime. No ones going to be like "oh wow he likes anime, i dont want to be near him" Most people will give you a straight yes or no answer.

Easiest way to find people is to wear the merch. Lots of fans will take a minute to compliment your bag or strike up a conversation. If you feel self conscious about it make it subtle. There are tons of hoodies that only have the scouting regiments logo on it or something small like that, for most people it's just a jacket but some will notice and say something eventually. If you're still self conscious look at it this way, people who avoid you because of what you harmlessly enjoy aren't really fun people anyways.

I would say try to see if any conventions are going to be around the area where you live. Even if its a comic convention you may be able to find some anime fans and see if you can request a meetup with the convention for anime fans. Another thing you can do is try to find a meet up group online or create your own meetup group at possibly your local library if they will let you.

Good luck with finding other anime fans and don't forget you have people here dealing with the same thing looking for other anime fans they want to have as friends.

usually i can tell if someone's into anime/manga by talking to them for a little ...
if i'm confident they like it, i just outwardly ask 'em if they watch anime

if i'm not sure, i'll slip it into conversation and see if they have a reaction (usually they will haha)
