I have no problem telling people that I watch anime.
My friends and family all know of course and when I talk to strangers and it matches the topic we're talking about (e.g. shows we're currently watching) I will tell them that I also watch anime.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I enjoy it and it makes me happy and there's absolutely no reason for me to justify that I'm doing something that lightens up my mood.

If they don't want to talk to me after that or don't want to get to know me better I wouldn't have wanted them in my life anyways. Me and my friends have so many different hobbies and we respect each one of them and don't judge people based on their interests. Those are the people I want to surround myself with.

And then there are situations were people start to talk to you because of anime. I have some badges, straps and keychains on some of my bags or I sometimes wear an anime themed shirt and it happens that people start talking to you because of this.
So you might even miss out on interesting conversations if you hide it all the time.

I don't tell anyone that I like anime IRL, except for a few close friends. Most of the people I see never mention it, so I don't assume they want to hear about it.

The older I get, the less I care about who knows I watch anime. However, I tend to get judged for it more the older I get.. it’s a trade off. I like what I like, though!

I let it be known far and wide, from the highest mountains, to the deepest holes within the Earth..

I'm pretty open about it. Also, I often reference various anime characters and plots in conversations without thinking about it so that pretty much outs me to anyone who didn't already know.

I used to hide it from other people but then I realized that in order to be happier I should stop caring too much about what other people think about me, and much less on these kinds of aspects.

Whenever I mention something like anime to the Neanderthals I work with, I usually end up on the receiving end of some stupid comment like, "Most people give stuff like that up when they reach puberty."

Only if asked or if it comes up. As a result quite a few of my friends started watching anime as well. Jokingly blame me for getting them hooked.

Was well known in the household. Mom used to watch shows with us when I was younger. Sister recently got her to watch Chobits XD My dad would usually just pop in and start talking like this
