Just wondering...

As most of my close friends who watch Anime are not.
And since most people that I know of who even watch Anime keep it low-key.
So I though hmm.. Maybe there is a big demographic of Muslim fans out there somewhere.


So if you are Muslim. Can you post:
- Ethnicity and Age
- City and what part of the world your from
- What or who first got you into Anime
- Also if your friends or family also watch Anime. Or if your closet Anime fans in public.




(BTW if you are not Muslim but have any friends who are, also otaku. Let me know)

Thanks

Really didn't expect that.
I don't really know of any other except for handful of people, but most of them keep it hush-hush.
So to imagine a group Anime fans let alone ones who cosplay and go to events wow kinda surprised.

Thanks for that.

I have a friend who is one. He isn't a big watcher like i am, but he has seen lots of the mainstream shows such as SAO, FMA, FMA:brotherhood, Death Note (ithink). Anyways, he's not as big of a fan like I am, but he likes it enough to spoil the FMA series to my other friend who just started watching it.

I have seen some female Muslim cosplayers that have made up some incredibly creative sollutions for this issue even from the more strict Islamic countries.
Sollutions that include full bodysuits and Hijab in the color of the character's hair instead of wigs to name a few.

Apart from that, there are a lot of female anime characters that still dress appropriate for the more liberal Islamic standards.

As for Islamic countries starting to join the international anime fan scene; Kuwait actually participates in the World Cosplay Summit these days.

Anyhow, I don't follow any religion myself, but welcome everyone into the otaku culture regardless.
