Doesn't matter to me. My SO doesn't like Anime and I'm fine with that. It's nice to have our own unique interests that make both of us different. We both love Game of Thrones though so there is that

As someone who dates a god forsaken weeb I can say that it really doesn't factor in. Personally, I watch anime for my own entertainment and she watches mostly different stuff in her own time.

The key difference is how that person uses their anime watching to flesh out their own character. If that person chooses to just watch it for fun but doesn't really involve themselves in the culture then it really doesn't matter if they watch anime. If the person cosplays and really gears for cons or social functions that revolve around anime then maybe they might seem more attractive. Perhaps that person really enjoys the otaku or weeb culture but is involved passively, as is my significant other's experience, in this case you won't see as much the overt acts of fandom like cosplay and rather you'll see their passion seep through their everyday personality.

To me the most important thing is that that perso is healthy and happy with who they are. Anime is just a medium and assortment of subcultures and people use it as a platform for self expression. There are many platforms and many ways to convey the inner beauty of a person's soul. Even if that expression is sending me a million JoJo memes.

Confused? You're married? Or just saying? Why not a vegetarian?


No no, I'm just saying, hypothetical! And not a vegetarian because it'd just be hard for me to work around and it's something I just don't really hold much importance too. I like my meat! The girl I was dating for a bit my freshman year in college was a vegetarian and it was just difficult to take her out to get food or anything like that. It's just one less thing I'd rather not worry about. But if she's a really good girl I of course could deal, it's just a simple preference more than a necessity

All the girls that I've dated were not into anime at all. Most of the girls I hang around with aren't really into that stuff anyways so it's never really been a necessity, I prioritize other qualities (like partying, liking the outdoors, also liking to chill out and relax, not vegetarian, preferably informed citizen (I'd almost say this is a necessity), and likes to work out, haha. Also: sweet, kind, caring, confident, outgoing enough, isn't afraid to speak her mind (no passive aggression, just tell me if you're pissed off!), open for change, and a hard worker/determined.... If my wife could have about a third or more of those qualities I'd be a very happy guy methinks, but I'm open to surprises; anyways rant over). But it'd certainly be a plus if she did watch anime! As long as she's open to it/doesn't care that I like it then it's not a problem.

With relationships you learn to deal with your partner's quirks and preferences, if you like them enough then you can let some things go. For example my first girlfriend LOVED America's Next Top Model and those MTV hook up shows.... You just learn to live with it after a while!


Dude, the frat boy party scene is not where you go to find people interested in anime from my experience. XD


Hahaha that is true, but people liking anime, video games, or other things of that ilk has just never been something I really cared for (thus why I would even consider fraternity life LOL). It's just a nice hobby of mine, nothing more nothing less. Even throughout high school to now, I've felt the same. I find myself having more in common with people that don't watch anime then people that do, to be completely honest. So if they do like it, it's just more of a plus.

But it is exciting to find out someone you've know for a while starting to watch anime/figured out they were watching it secretly (that just happened with an old friend of mine recently).

I'd rather date someone who doesn't already like anime but is willing to try it, so I can show them my favorites. I wouldn't date someone who liked long-running shonen anime, because I hate those (except Case Closed).

But they would probably share my tastes in other media, so they'd like the anime I like, too.

I've had boyfriends who like it, and ones who aren't fussed. All of them however have been open minded and willing to try what I like. I've tried what they like...Which is a relationship isn't it?

I kinda prefer a girl that likes anime, that way we can nerd out together when our favorite anime comes on.
Posted 5/30/16
For that reason alone is not sufficient.

It really doesn't matter to me as long as we liked each other. Her watching anime would be a nice bonus though. It's always fun to have stuff in common with people you like and anime is way more fun when you have someone to share it with.
