A lot of you saying you're open about it, but how many of you keep the TV on when your bros walk into the room while you're watching something like Nagi no Asukara or Nazo no Kanojo X.


I have 450 anime figures. I'm pretty sure anyone that'd walk into my house would understand the second they open the door.


You're a girl, people wouldn't care if you had 450 corpses in your room.


You'd be surprised how many people shun me because of being into the hobby. You can't say anything if you haven't lived through it.


You're probably not attractive then.


Aww how cute that you think that.
In reality a lot of peoples' opinions change when they get older. I'm closing in on 30 now and most people I hang with are in their upper 20's and early 30's themselves. Anime looks bad for most people around that age bracket because they're so busy with trying to look like adults that they automatically hate everything that doesn't look like it fits in with their mental picture of what 'adult' is.

I don't hide it, but I don't flaunt it, either.

I make blatant references and if they catch on I will talk it out, if not I laugh and pretend I'm just an idiot who says/does weird things. Either way this works and is how I've managed to make all my friends lol.

Im somewhat open, I don't go around announcing it but sometimes I do act a little chuunibyo and say "2D girls are better than 3D girls" in a joking matter. I watch it everyday in the school library. I probably talk about anime maybe once every few days, but I dont attend anime clubs that much so I guess I'm somewhat open with anime. For people that know nothing about anime I don't talk about it and with anime fans I talk more about it.

As for drawing anime, im pretty shy about that ( cuz i suk lel ;_; )

I talk about it as much as I talk about everything else.

Which is to say, I don't talk about it at all.

Yes I keep anime a secret from my friends because I'm in college now and they disapprove of it so yeah :/

No. My whole family likes anime so never cared much what anyone else thought about it.
Just finished watching half of Samuria Champloo with my dad this weekend. It was on
sale for $25 on blueray at Frys so I said what the hell and picked it up. Only watched it
once years ago on cartoon network(Adult Swim).

I don't really know how the rules of socializing and making friendships work outside of the internet so sometimes I feel like maybe I am too open about what I am interested in.. and other times I am just like F IT I don't want to treat something that I enjoy as something shameful and secret because others refuse to think outside of their tiny boxes filled with assumptions and insecurities. I just do my best to not scare off people with too much all at once but one way or another it's all gonna come out and they can take it or leave it.

Nope, anyone who remotely knows me understands my love for Anime. And if they don't well I don't give a damn.

It's not really a secret per say, anyone who knows me knows I watch anime. But I don't go out of my way to talk about it either, just when the topic comes up or presents itself.

I usually keep quiet about my anime addiction, especially around coworkers.

However, I'm always tempted to list 'anime' as one of my hobbies/interests on my job resumé just to see what kind of reaction it gets.
