Yup...
I often tend to hide the fact that I enjoy anime in public now.

So many times. Most of family still see it as cartoons for kids. Immediate family now see it as comic books, in that it's all age groups.

Had quite a few people at school mock me for watching it. It got to me at first, but i realised there was a whole other media group that they would never get. Just like red vs blue, the number of times i got away with calling them shisnos!!! Best thing is when they finally did learn it, I was far away enough to avoid them hurting but could still see their reactions upon learning.

Ultimately i pity their ignorance, they will never understand the enjoyment of anime & never be able to open their minds from their own ignorance.

I know the feels half of my family members tend to tease me a lot for anime calling me weird and anime porn a awhile back, but now a days they acknowledge it as something that makes me happy which is nice, even my little brother is getting into it so who knows I can't say our experience is the same but give it time and don't be afraid to show what you enjoy. as for outside the family I never really cared for what people said about my passions if I didn't hold there opinion in high regard as I do my family, I will accept constructive criticism but not destructive criticism.

I've only been made fun of in a jokingly kind of way. Never to offend.

You know, I never go around blasting any j-pop or openings. Or preach to others on how great of a show i'm watching. I also don't really buy any anime merchandise or manga. So I guess i'm not a hardcore anime fans like some. Not to offend others, but i'm assuming I don't get as much heat as do other people.

But to those who have seen me watching anime, all they do is just joke around but never to a point where I question the hobby.

Well once. No one really cared about it but the guy who made fun of me which I ended up figuring out two years after meeting him was a huge closet otaku.
It was once plus he actually liked anime so I guess it doesn't really matter. He wasn't like first scale bully about it.

I don't hide my anime pride, I wear anime shirts and cartoons from shows I like on tv. I'm not like obsessed about anime but it's nice to talk about it with someone so I just wear the clothes and see how many compliments I get for it (Usually a lot).

nope i keep it lowkey

Nope, my friends don't like it but they are open minded. As for my family, they don't mind. My parents actually used to watch anime as well, and they still do sometime(: I don't hide it, but I don't disclose it whenever I meet someone. If they ask what I like to watch, then I mention it. Even if I get weird looks i don't care; I don't really care what people think of me or my interests =^-^=

Nope. If someone knows I like anime, I'm probably pretty close to them so they wouldn't be mean to me.

I've been made fun of by my family in a joke way (I find what they say to be pretty funny). I rarely bring up the fact that I watch anime and read manga to my friends because they're not into that sort of thing.

A bit confusing to have question marks at the end of those statements.. but yeah, I've been fun of when I was younger by friends, and family about liking and watching anime. Now, not much at all, I'm lucky and managed to find many others who share my same interests.

Yes, my dad likes to tease me from time to time, but my close friends are good as long as I don't start talking about a show. For instance I had just watched the 4th episode of Plastic Memories and had to tell them and as soon as I brought it up one of my friends just sighed and got ready for nonstop blabbering I hurried through it not to bother them too much though!
