I only have a Miku poster now. I had to take down the others because the tapes are coming off and I don't have anymore. Until then, the rest of the wall stays 'clean'. I'll be putting them back up again.

Same here but i bought some removable wall hangers/hooks from a hardware store. Apparently they dont damage the paint when removed(they are stick ons). i guess i'll find out when the time comes.

I've never had any anime posters but I've had some other miscellaneous posters in the past. Over time the paper posters started to piss me off and one day I just tore them all off my walls and threw them away. I do like flags and stuff though, I have many flags from different bands and record labels that I like. I actually have so many flags I can't even display them all because I don't have that much room in my current living arrangement. I do plan on moving out with some friends by the end of the year though, so then I'll have more wall space to hang them up

I'm hoping you're taking them down so you can hand paint a badass anime mural.

Wall scrolls at least look nice presentation-wise. And you can very easily move them, stow them, etc.

The paper posters are more trouble than they're worth, from my experience.

Never taking mine down... at 43 I still love them. I intend to get more even... some people like fancy wall paper or different color paint for their walls and I like Anime posters. I dont see it as to different from hanging paintings either....It may not be perceived as being art or considered normal for decorations in many circles but I like what I like regardless of other people. I also refuse to be defined by my age or gender. Its not as normal for 43 year old women to love gaming and anime but it is normal for some people to like those things and I am also a person. (not a feminist, just to clarify...more of a people are people believer and let them do what they want.)

And when people tell me its strange or I am strange... whatever... dont care about being normal I care about being happy and my posters make me happy.

I have had my son say it was creepy that I said Karma from Assassination Classroom was awesome... not hot or sexy just awesome, because Karma is a teenager. but yeah...I get your point... men face accusations for just watching anime if there are young or young looking girls in it....society kinda sucks. I have had family say I am a freak and need help for laughing at violent parts of movies in the past... but since the now realize that I have no intention of killing or anything they stopped that... so I can actually empathize with you. It hurts when you enjoy something and people treat it like that alone is proof your no okay and are probably some sort of criminal.

If you want to have posters up, screw what an over judgemental society believes... I certainly have never felt less towards anyone for that ( although I dont like most people on general principal) put them up and enjoy your life. The world sucks but anime helps.. and if putting up some posters adds some fun and happiness to you life you should be able to do so without a bunch of probably hypocritical people telling you its wrong.

I think most teenagers do. I guess most people grow out of it or dont continue to spend $ on it.
Or switch to paintings/prints and stuff. Or framed photo's or portraits and the like.

I really appreciate cool anime posters, figures etc but I just never got into collecting that stuff. Besides a few gundam models and some trading cards that is all I have got.

If someone gave me a poster I would defiantly throw it up though.
