What anime are you too embarrassed to admit you like?
If a person told you that they like Prisma Illya but that they're not a lolicon and watch it for the comedy, would you trust them?
Asking purely hypothetically, of course.
Yeah, pretty much.
There are like three people that know I watch anime, they're coworkers. None of my non-work friends have any idea I spend my free time watching cute high school girls have adventures. Online, I don't give a fuck, because the judgement of people I'll never meet means shit to me.
I watch Prisma Illya only for Bazett
all of them
I am too nervous to even join people talking about OPM and other normalfag shit because I take my chinese cartoons too seriously
you can imagine how well that goes when people are just trying to enjoy the discussion and some weeb fag spergs out when they make a mistake (like genos being stronger than boros etc.)
at least I still have /a/
I dont know why, i am a grown man, i know its wrong yet i cant stop now.
Some nerdy kid at my work is new to this weeb shit and I'm making recommendations for him and he's also watching shit on his own. He showed me his currently watching list recently and I admitted to watching the Yuru's. ...All 3 seasons. He doesn't really know how to hide the powerlevels while talking about this shit either so it might be my downfall.
Probably one of the best looking dudes at my work, fit, etc. The 3D that like me must really weird out and get turned off when i talk to this kid and all they hear is weeb talk. Sorry, bloggan.
>caring at all what people think about your taste in animu.
I have IRL friends on steam and have recently bought Nekopara vol 1, will probably buy 2 when it comes out and 0 when I have more money.
But maybe I'm biased. as a neet I dont really see them much.
I have my TLR artbooks, Figures and Wallscrolls on pretty obnoxious shelfs. If someone decides he/she doesn't like me because of that, more power to them.
Fuck you and your dank MS paint comic
I recommend normie shit to others like Death Note, Cowboy Bebop, etc.
When some of my friends gets interested, I begin the process of transforming them into weebs
Then I show them miyazaki and ghibl movies, shonenshit
If they're still interested, the I go unload the dark shit
My brother. This is the exact reason I picked it up. When I heard Bazett was in it, I was immediately on Prisma Illya quicker than Cu onto his spear.
The fact her screentime for the most part is just her rolfstomping the cast, having a sweet fight against Gilgamesh and her fantastic ability to attempt to sell ice cream is pretty much the only reason I picked it up.
It was just convenient that 3rei came out, was actually pretty good and left us with Miyu!Shirou.
I got my best friend into anime and recommended some good shows for him.
All he does now is watch shit like Strike Witches. He decides on what to watch after seeing it in some random AMV on YT.
Life is suffering.
any anime. I dont want anyone knowing I watch it.
not even my gf knows
I read this in piles voice is this wrong?
come on, mentioning and recommending some relatively normal (as in, movies or short series, when there's some chance that they would actually try it) shit to people who you'd otherwise recommend things doesn't make anyone a weeaboo or an attention whore.
It's so bad and the first time charlotte clapped I thought it was just the sounds of her boobs moving. I can't possibly admit to liking this.
I'm not hiding my power level, but I'm not talking about it since I don't have any desire to make anyone understand or get into this, so no one actually cares.
There are some shows, guilty pleasures, that makes me ashamed of my taste for liking it like Milky Holmes,
SAO's first half, trainwrecks like Cross Ange, Charlotte and shit, the more ridiculous and stupid - the more fun I'm having
maybe it's my nostalgia for Code Geass with /a/, Green green, edgy and trying too hard to be dark shows.
Or "Oh, like thoe Ghibli movies? I loved Miyadzaki too" or "I'm a fan of cyberpunk, GiTS and Lain are such a masterpieces. Modern anime is shit even thou I've never watched seasonal anime in my life and have no idea what's going on"
>the first time charlotte clapped I thought it was just the sounds of her boobs moving
I like this show but it's embarrassing to admit I like it even to other anime fans
I just feel weird watching a cartoon made literally for little girls, it's fun, the characters are really loveable and sometimes it has pretty good animation, but I know I shouldn't be watching this.
Not in this case. If you care about something you won't do anything that can potentially harm it, unless you're underage and clueless about how things flows.
People recommends movies, cartoons, foty books and series but not anime.
Well, for example when I had someone recommend GITS movies to me, not knowing that I watch anime, it's only natural that I told them to check out Lain and Texhnolyze too. The worst that could happen that I help breed people like >>136261572 mentioned, but since they were already on their way, I couldn't care less.
>"Hey anon why do people watch anime?"
>"Oh uh, it's just cartoons from japan right? I think it's a pretty diverse medium, like mecha and sci-fi-"
>"I figured it was just pedophiles"
>"Hah yeah that must be it..."
Being a closet weeb is suffering
Depends on if they're <12 or not.
If they're not <12 then they're clearly a lolicon. There is no shame in admitting one's lolicon-ness. But the lolicons should not be confused with pedophiles or child molesters.
You don't become a murderer by playing violent games, you don't become a pedophile or molesters by watching loli anime.
What if I like aggressive hand-holding?
This. I don't talk about anime with people I know in real life, but this would probably be the last one I would admit to liking.
anon this is a christian image board!
I once told someone about LOGH. They thought it was bishounen shit. Never again.
On second thought, admitting that I watched a 100+ episode show about space politics may have been slightly autistic.
Same here then. I've got several IRL steam friends, some watch anime, some don't. Yet I still buy as much VN my money could buy.
Though it might be since I hardly ever even see them. It pays having a job miles away overseas, far away from old high school acquaintances. Good riddance, I'll tell you that. At work though? No, I'm as plain as it gets.
I wouldn't really give a fuck in the first place
Oh yeah sure I understand
I like that show as well. For the fights, you know...
Why do the girls in Valkyrie Drive clap so much?
>You don't become a murderer by playing violent games, you don't become a pedophile or molesters by watching loli anime.
We are all civilized people here and know that, but I'm afraid that the general populace would rather quickly jump to a conclusion.
This. No one knows I watch anime and anytime anime comes up I promote the negative stigma (haa that's for no-life fat manchildren) or I just ignore it. This will make it all the harder to hide this Nadeko that I preordered.
anyway, people don't care, it's usually wannabes making things up since they don't care. ff anything, bait is truly "their body". The shitposting from this people will never stop, i blame the vidya community over other things, even over pv chats. the only shit that still alive and vocal
Strike Witches. I liked but It's so embarrassing.
I even told my friend I like love live and To loveru but man SW is so weird.
WW2 weaponry, girls with literally flying fuck, showing underwear without shame.
Itoshi no Muco. I dont even know why I watch it, the quality of 3Dshit animation, writing, comedy, its all so bad. But I watch it anyway.
>Not having a best bro who isn't a weeb faggot irl and discusses seasonal shit with you
>Not having a best bro irl who also has top tier taste like you
>Not having a best bro irl who also shitposts on /a/
I can't relate
I don't think my co-workers would look at me the same if they find out I spend a good chunk of time watching/reading cute girls doing cute things. If they found out I have a waifu I would be really embarrassed.
It was extremely disappointing and stupid but I watched it anyway.
I feel bad for everyone who's so insecure about their hobby.
All of my friends from university/work know I'm into anime and none of them think less of me for it. My older friends and my gf know I'm a lolicon, having seen the loli figures and posters prominently on display in my bedroom, and none of them are remotely put off by it.
Do you all hang out with turbo dudebros with such a narrow perspective on life that they deem any pursuit beyond watching football while drinking beer is unmanly or something?
>That one person in college who knows you watch anime and tries to get you to join the anime club
>Letting people know you watch anime
It's like you fags want to remain virgins
My parents will disown me if they ever caught me watching this.
Yeah this. Otherwise for the most part I don't try to hide it but I'm not out in the open about it, either. Most of my friends know I enjoy it but for the most part I'm just indifferent if it comes up in conversation.
its one of my top 10's, but I swear I only watch MATURE anime for mature adults like myself
heh, I remember when I was 14y olds and still hoped people wouldn't amuse anime fans are weirdos by default
The truth hit me like a ton of bricks
I know what they are like anon, all genitals are disgusting in general. Only good for reproduction which will soon be outdated for a newer safer artificial womb.
What do you do when a friend keeps bugging you to watch trash shit like Toradora?
Nah, I don't think so.
In fact some of them started off as normies and have made something of a conversion.
Incidentally, because I was on a social science course (don't laugh) at Uni, all of my friends are girls.
I have two answers for this for very different reasons.
My "embarrassing" anime that I like are Naruto and Madoka.
Let's start with Naruto. Naruto I'm embarrassed when in anime savvy circles such as /a/, for obvious reasons. I'ts an entry-level anime that frankly went to shit somewhere in part 2. I know this to be true. That being said I can't not love it 'cause it was the first anime I watched conscious it was anime (obviously I saw DBZ when I was a kid but back then I didn't even know it was anime, it was just a cartoon). Also, it caught me in that 14-16 year old period where everything leaves a huge impression on you. Look, I was a maniac for that shit, I couldn't stop watching/reading it and looking up every bit of lore and stuff I could. As cringy as it is in retrospect, I remember very fondly when me and all my friends at school watched that shit and talked about it every day.
So yeah, even though I know it's shit, and I would never say it in person to anyone who knows a lot about anime, Naruto will always hold a special place in my heart.
IRL though I generally have no problem saying I liking it to casual people 'cause most of them know of it and it's widely considered acceptable by normies so yeah. The one I don't like to admit to IRL is Madoka.
Now, I love madoka and will defend it against anyone, be it on /a/ or any other place. I regard it in very high esteem. IRL though? Yeah, try to explain to normies as a grown ass man about how you think this colorful cartoon with cute little girls doing cute girl things is a masterpiece. Sorry, but I like having a social life.
Holy shit my brother!
I didn't know other asexual people didn't fap.
Live happily my friend.
Did you not read the post I replied to? He specifically mentioned fat chicks. I was just responding to his remark.
>Anyone who does is either a cringy weeb or a fat fujoshit/femanon who pretends to like anime for the attention.
>you thank him for suggesting the greatest love story ever told
But anon, I've already watched White Album 2 so I don't need to see low tier kiddy shit. Especially that trashy tsundere taiga bitch.
Man, you sound exactly like me, the first half of Naruto was really nice to watch when i was a teenager. But like you, my tastes evolved to patrician tier taste, mainly CGDCT.
>tfw I got found out when I had my friends over and they saw my netflix history
Luckily I successfully covered it up I blamed it on the other people I share my account with but it was a close one
All the alternative guys I know watch it. Some of them aren't autistic or gay. I thought they all watched entry level shit but it turns out some of them just hide their powerlevel
All of them, I even hide it from my gf. I'm just a normie who enjoys watching 2d girls every now and then.
Didn't Spirited Away win an Academy Award? Then you can say that you "appreciate the acclaimed animated works of the Orient." Howl's Moving Castle too, so you can say that enjoy all iterations of the late Diana Wynne Jones's works.
Where I come from most people have seen either Spirited Away or Howl's Moving Castle (or both) when they came out, and at least recognize Totoro. Also about everyone has watched either DBZ or Pokemon (or Sailor Moon, among girls) as a kid. Exposition to anime usually ends on this, but I don't think I've ever met a person my age who haven't at least heard about these.
This shit right here was one of my gateway anime/manga. I was fucking pumped when it got re-licensed for publishing in the US. I've been on the ride too long to get off now.
I marathoned Fate/Zero with my normie friends from high school (am in college now). They liked it, so we did UBW. Also went over well.
So we did Madoka. They thought it was great.
Then we did Samurai Flamenco. They lost their shit.
So I gave them each like 40 gigs of stuff to watch at school and am hoping they like it.
Someday I'll have established enough rapport to suggest my secret shame
OreImoand have them not think it's weird.
Finally, I'll get them to read
the 18+ version of Grisaia no Kaijitsuand we can argue about Best Girl it's Mitcher
My college friend recomended this so hard that he forced me to watch AMVs for like a week and claimed that it was the best thing he had ever seen in his life.
I downloaded it, but it seemed like trash at the time and I have not touched it even now.
Is it watchable or is there a reason normies like it?
>Hiding your power level
>Giving a shit
I don't talk about my hobbies, but if people ask I'll tell them.
I don't watch most moe shows though so I'm pretty good in that regard
>Oh hey anon do you watch [Naruto/Attack on Titan/Bleach/Fairy tale]
>Oh hey anon do you watch [moe slice of life/battle harem/whatever]
>Oh hey anon what do you watch
>show them a scene from Lain with nothing but talking
>there are people on /a/ who reply to tripfags
This, my mate got Nekopara as well and we just trolled around with it.
I know a few people that watch anime in real life that I discuss it with, but I'd be ashamed to say I watch K-On! Or Love Live, but they're a good way to relax with all the violence on TV and shit desu senpai.
>That anime club that was full of mediocre looking fujoshi and their dozens of flip beta orbiters, who watch sports anime with homolust and whatever is going to be on toonami in 2 years
I'm not a lolicon and I'm watching it for the comedy, the story, and I just like Illya as a character. Also the back and forth between Luvia and Rin amuses me greatly.
>It's about not being retarded and watching whatever in public
No, it's more than that. I would never mention it to anyone online or IRL because I fear what would someone would think if they decided to look up clips online, especially of 2wei.
It's pretty good for its target audience and I still enjoyed finishing the two final seasons as an adult. That said, it would be better if it was half the length it is and the dead author didn't keep resetting the relationship so he could milk the series more.
One of the only anime I'm hesitant to praise out loud is AKB0048, for reasons.
KEIT-AI WILL (FIND A WAY)
ANON SHALL (SPAM ON /a/)
LET ME OFF
THIS FUCKING RIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE
I'm expecting jokesubs that completely alter the plot to fit keit-ai after the BD goes out.
Don't disappoint me, /a/.
Probably shitty battle harem shows that originate from the cesspool known as LNs for random girls that are almost never the main girl.
Clock is probably the best example.
Pretty much the same thing for me but minus the lolicon stuff. My friends kinda tease me but it has never really bothered me.
Just kidding, I wish my normie friends would just die
Depends on whom I'm talking to. I'm not particularly into harems/ecchi so I don't have that factor. Usually I mention anime in the broader context of my interest in film, sci fi, and my mild japanophilia. I love anime but its not the first thing I want to tell people when I meet them.
My doujin preferences are another story. I generally would talk about with people on /a/, or perhaps if I meet an outgoing weeb who really feels like talking about what tags he is into I will engage that conversation. I have to say those kind of shameless conversations are wonderful. But I generally stay away from the porn aspect with the "normie" anime watchers I know through various groups. Actually now that I think about it I had a lesbian co-worker (she's pretty butch) who was a huge bro and we became pretty close, I showed her some yuri once. Also yaoi, don't really mention that at all since I'm a closeted bi.
sage for blogshit in a blogshit thread
It was this scene right here when I had to pause and ask myself, "What the actual fuck am I watching?"
I enjoy the gravitation dub ironically
Why would it be embarrassing to enjoy the most-recommended anime on /a/?
Clearly a lot of people here have enjoyed it, and aren't ashamed to tell other people to watch it.
2 > 1 > 3
Me and my sister watch anime together but I wouldn't tell her I watched K-on and I would never tell her I liked it. We're going to an anime convention in a couple months, she wants us to cosplay, I'd still never tell her.
I'm really fucking glad my IRL friends aren't into anime.
The people I've encountered that are, tend to be really fucking cringey and annoying. They like to talk about it in public too. Just fuck off weird fucks.
1. you don't like k-on
2. child talk
3. give her the D
I don't watch anything really cringey, but probably just anything not "serious" because most just think of the stigma of it. My friend's girlfriend is the only person who actually knows I watch anime because she's into it too (normalfag stuff only as far as I know). No way in shit am I going to bring it up with my normalfag friends.
It's filled with cute girls and funny antics, what's not to like about it? Everyone that knows me see's me as the serious, quiet guy that telling someone that I like something as out of my character as K-on would just be embarrassing, call me a casual if you want.
>Love serious, over the top and shitty moe animes
>Plays video games of all sorts save casual shit
>My waifu's a snake
Just give it to me straight doc, what's the diagnosis?
I have my niggas I can talk about anime with and I have my niggas that couldn't even imagine someone they know watches anime
You should find people, or just one person even, that you can talk about it with
>That feel when actually made two friends that are weebs but like, COOL weebs
It's just nice being able to discuss the really /a/ shit with people that aren't cringeworthy for once like the faggots I knew in highschool
I'm not sure I'm embarassed, I just don't particularly enjoy the conversations that usually follow. Hell, that goes for every conversation where one party is informed and the other doesn't have a single idea what the fuck their talking about.
Diabolik Lovers, its so bad its bad. But i love this shit for some reason.
Literally nothing wrong with liking Shugo Chara.
This actually doesn't surprise me, all of those ronery con girls are obsessed with it lately.
I wish I could enjoy LL, a bunch of friends' GFs are in LL cosplay group things and could introduce me to girls, but I've been very vocal about how much I hate the series.
Why does my waifu have to be stuck in such a shitty show?
I got it from one of those bakabt/random threads and ended up liking it a lot for some reason. I watched both seasons and it is one of my favorite animus
None. I'm completely unashamed of what I watch.
That blog's nice, but you got one thing wrong.
Also try to get them to watch the anime first, it's normal enough, then when they want more, tell them there's a novel and let them do the work.
You should have seen the waifu thread. A tripfag was just baiting hardcore, and people kept replying to him. It's like some people here are new and don't know that tripfags are attention seeking faglords. But that could never happen
That's funny, my sister never watched anime, and she saw me watching it once and sat through the rest of the episode and we watched the rest of season 2 together whenever i came over.
To myself? Not a one.
To others, I'd probably have a hard time justifying the pantslessness kin Strike Witches.
I think Code Geass, despite it's surface-level silliness and the yaoi-fetishists that make up its fanbase, is a fucking 10/10 show with some of the most well-developed and multi-layered characters I've ever seen in both Lelouch and Suzaku. I also think its pacing is damn near perfect, and not once was I ever bored with the plot or felt things were moving too slow (or fast). The fact that it's transcended its limitations as "just another mecha" is proof of its quality IMO.
Sounds better than the ones I've been asked to join. The fujoshi weren't even mediocre. And the only not fujoshit they ever watched or talked about were the big three, pokémon, and DBZ
Why was EilaxPerrine so much better than EilaxSanya? I think the teasing helped a lot make it more enjoyable.
Trude best and sexiest witch.
>telling people you like anime
>telling some 3DPD slut so that you could get laid
