.......[do you tell them you like anime or not because of the stigma attached to Japanese toons]?
of course not. it's just cartoons to most people, so they'll never take you seriously.
i dont tell anyone because 1 i dont like talking about tv 2 most people who would even understand it are socialy inept faggots and i dont want to give them a subject matter that we have in common to keep talking with me about
there is no situation in which someone who hasn't watched it themselves would understand what it meant.
usually yes. I have an alibi for not being a faggot. I'm not socially awkward and right before i mention anime, i say cage-fighting.
I don't consider it a hobby, so no.
i just say toons
but that's after my list of drawing, working out, hanging out, etc..
you fat gook
dot. I hate those people. They're the same ones that watch bullshit like Survivor.
it seems like a lot of the anime subforum are ashamed of it or at least are concerned about others will think when they say it...
I'll admit I'm kinda like this. I don't like telling other people that I watch it and only if I see someone reading a manga or have an item showing they watch a particular show will I talk about it. Honestly, I don't think I would ever get another gf if I went around saying I liked japanese cartoons even though they really are a lot more interesting and mature than american cartoons.
i don't really like talking about anime in general in public no matter who it is i meet. i usually just let people know i like video games... and thats the extent of my hobbies. often people get the ugh face when they hear about anime so i just stay off it unless the bring it up
when people ask about my interests of course i mention it
being ashamed of something you like
one of my biggest hobbies is porn... you think i am going to go around discussing porn?
but you can assume that everyone likes porn, it's a given.
i dont mind telling people i watch anime.
do you go collecting pron, watching it just for shits, and attend pron cons?
if so then
reality TV sucks.
now Heroes and 24?
please tell me none of you watch american idol
i guess i collect it/watch it just like i do with anime, though the fuck i would ever go to a porn convention... but the again i would never go to another anime convention. just not a fan of the people who go to conventions.
can't wait to watch tonights ep of 24, i need to download. and holy fuck so many people have told me to watch heroes, i should just go ahead and download it.
That's because most people associate the word "anime" with shit like pokemon and the list of crap on Cartoon Network. Few of those people have taken the time to read up on movies like Ghost in the Shell or Akira.
That it does. How does "let's see which island we can cast a bunch of retards on next," equate to a great show?
Lost, Scrubs, and The Black Donnelly's FTW.
there you go
pron is not a hobby for you
so no need to tell everyone you have 200gb of prons
ok i may have like 20 times more anime than porn... but i seriously think i view porn more than anime, well sometimes.
