Don't care what people think about me for liking it, but I don't publicly share it. On the outside people who don't know me probably get a impression that I'm a photographer, artist and metal head as I've got WAAAAY more metal merch then anime merch

(It's Suzaku and Lelouch <3 I added another flower since then, though. I also have a deco like that with Reisi and Saru from K, and one with Lagrange Point from Marginal #4. I'm thinking of making them to sell on Etsy, too. I didn't make this one, but I modified it to go with the keychains.)


....... oh, and I carry my art supplies in a legit fujoshi ita bag. I need to take pictures of that. It's not all one character - it's mostly SuzaLulu, but it also has SaruMi and Kuroh/Shiro (and Neko), Kamigami no Asobi, Tsukiuta, and one little Marginal #4 thing, but I really want to add more Magi4. Oh, and my notebooks - one has SuzaLulu on the front and Hakumaitou all over the inside, one has Kuroh and Shiro on the front and Magi4 on the side. I need to post pictures of those, too...)

Not enough, I think. I might decide to wear something related to anime, one day. The problem is that I don't like shirts with too many distractions on it. I prefer simple designs over flashy.

I am fairly open about my love of anime, though. I don't really bring it up first with someone I don't know, but I do openly watch it and I'll mostly certainly talk about it if I find someone who is also into the same.

I don't really own any anime merchandise; however, I do own the complete box set of Spice & Wolf and Chobits. So I don't really overtly express my "otakuness," if you will.

Yes, but I don't show it off that much. I have a small Bertholdt charm on my backpack zipper and a Hatsune Miku folder for all my old assignments. Just small subtle things.

I don't actually care about telling them I like anime, but it seems out of place to read manga in public or wear a Naruto shirt lol
Not that it would be weird, I just don't have a reason to do it.

Not really anymore for me. I still own and buy anime shirts, but they're usually worn around the house. If you saw me on the street you would never know I was a mega otaku. c:

Not really. I mean I don't own any anime clothing to flaunt in public.

I have some random stuff at home that I don't hide but I don't have anything I wear in public. It used to be something I would hide, now I don't go out of my way to advertise it but I don't actively hide it either.

I don't own much in terms of swag to wear so it's mostly of a nonissue for me. If the topic of anime comes up or I'm talking with a friend in public I don't mind talking about it, I just don't like shirts with prints.

I'd hardly call it a lifestyle for myself, even in terms of hobbies anime isn't my first priority. I don't mind talking about it or answering honestly if someone asks whether I like it, but I don't collect the sort of swag or clutter that screams, "I'm an anime fan!"

Even if you went through my home, the only physical items related to anime that I own are a few dvd/bluray collections of my favorite series. No, they're not hidden, they have their own little section on one of the shelves of my movie cabinet.

I wear my anime stuff in public all the time. It doesn't bother me if people think it's nerdy or what not..

I just wore this shirt the other day



And this hat at Narita airport last summer
