Much younger I was. I remember early on in school I was made fun of for bringing my Gameboy to school and having a Gundam backpack. Once middle school came around that all kinda went away I was still bullies and picked on but for other reasons.

Actually not. Most people think it's pretty normal these days. While I've met people who weren't into it, or didn't know much about it, most knew someone else who was also into it to some degree. Like games, it isn't just for the nerds anymore. Remeber once, I and a few adult relations went to theater to see an anime movie, and though it had been labeled for children, there were only about 5-10 children in a basically filled theater. The rest were adults of all ages, and while I can't say they weren't all nerds, they looked like your average normal movie audience.

When I was a kid? Yeah, the crew I hung out with at the time weren't too keen on it. But then again I'm sure I returned the mockery for their likes just the same.

Now? No. Can't say that anyone has ever bugged me about it.

Only by people who spend their time watching American Idol and The Voice, and other reality TV like that.

If I wanted reality, I'd go outside.

But I want anime.

Never but i just got into it. What i love is the story telling and the artwork. I don't why people are so against it. Way i see i like what i like and vice versa. Some people have opinions that they should keep in their head and not share. I dislike things and like things but never make a habit to ridicule someone over something i myself aren't into.

Not really, other than seeing people poke fun in online comment sections. The way I see it, as long as you just treat it like any other hobby and not obsess/be weird about it, people will just sort of nod their head and move on from my experience. It's when you start acting like the stereotypical weeb that paints a bad picture for you.
