There are not many people that I meet in my real life that actually enjoy anime. So when I do meet someone I instantly start a discussion to see what series and genre they enjoy. I love trading recommendations!

I ignore them. I find that people who have the same hobbies as me tend to over-talk about it.

We start comparing notes on favorites and what we're watching. Not exactly opinions. That part might come up. But I have a long list of what I like and I'm always curious about what others like. Since anime fans my own age are very rare, I'm just glad to talk about anime in general. I don't care about their opinions, and, since I'm usually two or three times their age, they're not usually that interested in my opinion.

idk, I don't really look like someone that watches anime, i guess? And since I'm from California, I guess it isn't that strange to watch anime for fun. I know so many people at my school alone that watch anime, most just do it casually and may recommend things for each other every once in awhile. I bet like 15% of my school at least watches anime, so I guess it's just like meeting any other person.

The only time it was more of a shock and I was interrogated about what I had seen was when I moved to Europe. My roommate is Japanese and likes the subcultures a lot, so I started hinting about things I had seen as a way of conversation starting, since we'd be living with each other the next few months. I guess it worked because one day he was on skype with his friends and I was just chilling on my phone, next thing I knew he was pointing at pictures from different series and asking if I recognized them, all while relaying the information back to his friends. I was laughing the whole time, it kinda went "do you know this?" "Yea..." "nenenenene (something about what I'd seen in Japanese)" everyone on other end of call "maji?"

I guess it worked lol, we're cool I think and he wants me to go to Japan like at the end of summer. He really loves Japan, and who knew all that anime I watched Freshman year would pay off in social networking lmao.
