I can't seem to make friends near me who like anime ever since I moved!? It's so lame not being able to talk to people about anime and manga and cosplay and all that good stuff ^~^"
Why does no one near me like these things!?

Let's just pity them for not knowing the greatness that is Anime, manga, and cosplay.



..............on second thought why not introduce them to it? Maybe, they'll like it.

Mmmm, generally speaking: Otaku culture is rather avoided in western areas. You'll get a lot of people giving you the excuse: "I don't understand it" or "It's just cartoons". These are often the people who don't want to understand it and never take the time to. Thus, its uncommon to find people who can appreciate this culture in the first place. I can't blame them, as the culture is VERY different, so its very hard to keep an open mind to both.

I used to have friends back home that I could just watch anime with and play yugioh and what not, so I guess I'm just looking for that face to face interaction again.
Although you can never have enough Internet friends

I just wish it wasn't on the fringe of society, if only to have more people interested in it to befriend

Mhm, I agree. I assure you that there'll be a generation who can appreciate these things, instead of avoiding them simply because of certain misconceptions regarding the culture and content. (ie. tentacles and huge-busted high school girls)

Mmm, it honestly bewilders me how people can draw such strange conclusions without ever letting themselves be exposed to this culture. Oh wait—I forgot there exists 'ignorant people' ;\

What I'm trying to say is, to wait for certain people to become less ignorant.

Trust me the same thing here. The only people I have are my sis and bro.
Other than that, I know no one who likes anime. Last time I tried, they laughed and called it cartoons
