    Default Ever been embarrassed about reading manga or watching anime?

    Have you ever been embarrassed about reading or watching anime? I have. When our family moved to another country where not so many young people reading manga or watching anime, all my friends would laugh at me. My friends asked if I understand the language in the anime and I said no (hey! there is a subtitle in English. Gee) and they thought that I was weird because they didn't understand why would I watched something I didn't understand. Even my dad doesn't understand why I would spend my time reading manga and watching anime though he never thought of it as a problem. Now I don't care what people say. I like it, what's it to them anyway?

    Have you ever had an embarrasing or awkward moment regarding anime/manga?

    Never had an awkward moment, even though I only have about 5 real life friends I can talk to about animes (but most of them are boys ._.) My parents doesn't really care if I read manga/watch anime, but they think it's too childish.

    Only when the anime and/or manga I read/watched sucked to the extent that I felt embarrased about having wasted my time on it. Other than that, nope.

    My thanks to Xey Oiz for the awesome new set.

    I don't really make my addiction to anime noticeable in public. I'd rather other people think I play DoTA, which I do.
    I love wafers!

    There was a time when I was 12 and I was watching Nuriko die in Fushigi Yuugi and I just couldn't help but cry... My auntie laughed at me...

    And so, the next time she was going to watch her soap operas, I hid the TV plug adapter.

    Yep, same here. The only time someone found out was when my friend watched me input my school password which was ssgoku. He kept teasing me, but I was more worried that he would sign into my account and browse pornography (which he said he would do).

    Anyway, I had a weird moment one day in college. I was waiting in line to check out a manga from our library. Now this beautiful girl keeps watching me from her for a couple of minutes smiling. She decides to get up and walk towards me after a while and starts talking to me a bit. So then she asks me what I'm waiting in line for, because she wanted to have some coffee. I show her the manga and tell her that I'm going to check that out, and she suddenly looks confused. Then she says that she had plans to meet with one of her friends and leaves. I later found out that the manga was shonen ai. So now I keep my addiction secret, and I check the manga more thouroughly before checking it out.

    Yeah. >.< I try not to let people know I like anime since there is a stereotype against it (like people who watch anime are depressed, emo people who have no goals in life or whatever).

    I only let certain people know I'm interested in it. Sometimes when I talk about it, people will stare at me in confusion cuz they don't know what it is. And then it's kind of awkward explaining it.

    Pfft, what do I care if they find my manga reading/anime watching weird? I think they are weird for caring what I'm reading and taking time out of their lives to heckle me when I could care less.
    I now know what hell sounds like; I recommend a tactical nuclear strike on my position. Tell my family I love them.

    Not in the least. My parents don't understand why I like manga and anime, but I'm lucky in that all of my friends have an interest in some anime and manga, so there's no need to be embarrassed. Granted, we do tease each other about some of the things we read or watch, but that's all it amounts to.

    Really? I do have some friends who like to watch anime, and one of them sometimes asks me what anime is good to watch besides Gundam. Good thing some malls here in the Philippines have stores dedicated to comics and such. I check it out once in a while to see if there are any good collectibles to buy. Normally, I just browse through and go out. Whee!

    Well I don't have any friends besides AF buddies that like anime. Sci-fi is seen as nerdy, but anime is seen as childish and stupid. Other people that like anime also tend to keep it a secret. Not so much in college though. We actually have a cosplay club that meets every Tuesday. It's fun to see what they dress up as.

    I always get the feeling that if I reveal my addiction to anime, some of my classmates might insult me for that. That's why I play chess and/or DoTA to pass the time away.

    I was embarrassed to read Eureka Seven on the airplane when I was younger.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    Oh, yeah. Wafers. I almost forgot that. Anyways, even if you have a partner who doesn't like anime or watch it, eventually that partner will respect you for what you like, assuming you respect what she likes as well.
    I love wafers!




    I'm sure the Lakers will get that three-peat. Awwyeahh

    It's hard for me to even play my music at home, my mom has always got a thing against what I like and it hurts me if she disses even anything I have a fondness of (or even if anyone does that... I'm so sensitive ._.). The whole family's more into Korean music and drama so I really feel like an outcast and I have to endure all the Korean stuff everyday, some unwittingly go into my playlist.

    In the public eye, I try not to expose my anime fandom. (I already look kinda geekish, being an IT grad...) Anime has a good following here but most of the fans are kinda... hard to get along with.

    祝! 『禁断の病棟』 アニメ化!

    I think I understand how it feels. I live in school so all my friends (of course) play Danish songs. I always use my headphones each time I want to hear asian music, because they just laugh at it.

    Only the 'weirdos' here watch anime. So I havent really talked with them. They are all kindda hackers or something like that.

    No, why would I be? I rarely read the manga I have collected, and I rarely watch anime anymore. Even when I did, it wasn't a big issue.

    I'd been out shopping with my family at the mall, they went into a different store while i went to go look at anime. I found a yaoi dvd set i'd been looking for and was all hmmm... My parents don't know i watch this, this might not be the best time to buy it. (my dad is a homophob)
    But the store was having a sale and i didn't know when i'd be able to go back and get it so against my better judgement i bought it. It was in a bag you couldn't see through and well they don't really ask about what i watch because they think its kiddish (think that's how i've hidden my love for yaoi for the past... 6 to 7 years >.> ) So we meet back up and continue shopping. No problems. Then we get ready to leave and head out through Best Buy to get to our car.
    You know those things that beep when people try and steal stuff? They went off when i went through. O.O??? "Miss did you buy any dvds or cds?" "Y-yes." I showed them my reciept and that i infact have two dvds in my bag. "Would you like me to deactivate them?" "Nooo that's ok i'll just let the guy at the other door know what's wrong." ( Because i really don't want you to take them out of the bag in front of my family!!!!!)
    That was the one and only time i've boughten yaoi with my family around.


    On another note most of my friends make sure to let any and all new people i meet that i read as they call it "gayporn" >.> thanksss guys. Now they think i'm a creeper before they get to know me.
    Only fools accept the obvious and go no farther.
    Common sense isn't so common anymore.

    Never, because I don't bring a manga book with me everywhere. Sometimes I read manga books in Barness & Noble, but I was never embarrassed. Reason? I don't really know...

    I sometimes watch anime on youtube, but still, I was never embarrassed...I guess it's because I don't look like the type of person that really likes anime.

    One time I was watching an anime on the bus and it got a little ecchi and this girl was looking at me weird. I was sorta embarrassed but not enough to stop watching it.

    I don't have an air of otakuness, so it wouldn't really matter.

    I usually do not really care either, but since you, soon, and I are going to school for the illustration and animation. We have like-minded people.

    Doing a report on anime isn't really appropreiate in a normal college, I think I understand why they would belittle and trash him or her.

    Luckily both of us can write animated and comic related essays for art college level english and english electives; If I remember correctly, one cool classmate was working on watchmen.
