Yep & I still do occasionally. lol Everyone in my family is hoping I'd stop being into nerdy stuff in general.
Almost everyone who hears the word "anime" automatically think hentai or Naruto. It's annoying, yeah, but I didn't care once I entered High School.

yea, I've been made fun of but usually the said person who does it either apologizes or asks why I'm into to it and lets me explain, thats after I get done roasting the shit out of them for the "frowned" upon stuff that they are into

Because of my size (6'2ft and 240lbs. mostly muscle) people used to make fun of me, but I ignored them and I got called a weeaboo and a causal and it went over my head at the time.

I get teased a lot about it. But then they eventually stop because I either a) ignore them or b) I talk so much shit to them, they feel guilty.

Kind of. There's this one dumbass of a kid at my school who's always making jokes about Asian stuff, so then if he sees anything remotely Asian looking, he assumes that it's mine or something. Like, one time there was this Yugi-Oh manga left on a table in the library and when I walked past the table he stopped me with the stupidest smile on his face and was like "Hey, that's yours right?" and I was just like "Ummm no" and then he said "I thought you liked all that Asian stuff." As you can imagine I disregarded such stupidity and moved on.

People have tried to make fun of me, but I'm not really someone you want to make fun of. My friends see my wall scrolls, and even though they aren't into anime, they understand that I like it, and they respect it. When you become an adult, you should be able to respect other people's hobbies and choices. People who aren't my friends would never know by looking at me that I like anime because I don't act like a weeaboo.

Well, I have, but generally those people are few and far between. I usually just probe them for something they enjoy that I find pointless and meaningless, as a way to contrast our polarising interests. I don't mean to in an antagonistic way, but more so to get people to think about how pointless a lot of things we humans are interested in really are. In saying that, all the pointless stuff humans come up with is pretty awesome and I enjoy partaking in all the uselessness before me.

occasionally.

Not that I really care. Most people that make fun of me are just people who have never watched anime or are elitists who think if you like a show they dont then your stupid.

I dont really care anymore TBH, I dont enjoy my hobby to impress them, I enjoy my hobby to please myself.

I've never really been made fun of other than friends and family poking fun at me in a friendly way. Not too many people outside my closest circle even know I'm into anime though so not much opportunity there. I never knew anyone growing up that was made fun of for liking anime, my school was pretty chill no massive bullying or anything.
