How do you explain a hobby such as ours to normalfags, let alone your parents?

Nigger, my fucking mother just bought the entire fucking collection of Goldorak for my father this valentimes, both of whom actively watch anime themselves.

Why the fuck would you have normalfag parents in the first place?

I know about this all too well.

It's just not possible to hide your chinese cartoons for 18 years. For 17 of those i just let my parents think it was porn that i alt tabbed out of.

Hearing them say "anime" out loud is more cringe-worthy than any brony video you can find on youtube.

I don´t know about my parents (I think my sister knows but doesn´t gives enough of a fuck to even talk to me about it...or maybe she avoids the subject) but the only thing my close friends know is that I love masturbating to hentai and that I have a loli fetish (I usually joke about it so they jsut think I´m a bit fucked up).

Well there's the large overarching style and the small and humble style, I like both equally.

Yes, anon. _I'm_ the normalfag
>>
>>102101106
What´s up with your mother, anon? Does she works for the Spanish Inquisition?
Most mother would just show a moderated interest or ask a few questiond and realize you don´t want to talk about it.
>>
>>102101106
>"Wow, that sounds interesting! What are some shows I can watch? I just want to understand your hobby more."
Here watch FLCL.

Also you're going off the fact that my Mum actually cares about this shit, she'd much rather talk to me about HER interests instead of mine.

They haven't known shit these last 10 years, they won't start knowing about it now.

Conceal power level at ALL costs.

I don´t see what hidign your weird hobbies has to do with being a normalfag.

You'd think that, but my mom threatened to go search for some online if I wouldn't tell her myself.

For fear of her finding our beloved Boku no Pico i set her up with Usagi Drop on Crunchyroll.

I'm so fucked. Time to move out, it's about time anyway i'm 19. Pic related is for me.

I could extrapolate it to something like being afraid of society judgment or something like that, but I'd personally just rather call you a self-conscious faggot.

Most mother aren´t so obsesive about those things.
If she keeps insisting a simple "You wouldn´t enjoy it, it´s made for a yougner audience" should suffice.

Of course that I don´t want to get judged by society. Almost everyone who watches anime or anything related with it hides it.
Are you telling me you go around teling people about your favourite anime or your waifu?

How to answer to anime question from normalfags: The Comprehensive Guide.
>Do you like anime?
Well, yes, why shouldn't I like it?
>But anime is for losers!
Anime is just another sort of media. It's all the same shit.
>Well, what do you like about anime?
It's interesting, and animation allows for more freedom in visual descriptions, allowing to implement the plot exactly how author imagined it.
>What is your favorite anime?
Well, a bit of this and a bit of that. Personally, I thought that anime which was an adaptation of an award-winning book captured its spirit very well.
>Wow, that sounds interesting! What are some shows I can watch?
Well, try these shows first, they're entertaining for everyone and don't require an intricate knowledge of Japanese culture (point the person in question to some normalfag anime).
>Why is this guy falling into that girl's boobs?
Oh, that? It happens occasionally, Japan is weird like that. I guess I already got ued to it so much I don't even notice it.

>inb4 thinking that anything I wrote is what I actually think
No, it's not.

>>102101667
There's a difference between telling strangers that you fap to chinese doujin and being honest with your hobbies.

Man you did that wrong, you need to set her up with a 70s series starting at season 2 so she gets confused and gives up.
>>
>>102101741
What if my hobbies include fapping to chinese doujin?
Also, you are wrong. When it comes to the thinks you fap to, people doesn´t gives a fuck if you do it to normal porn or hentai. They will just think you have some weird fetishes.
>>
>>102099188
I find the storylines a lot more diverse and able to explore situations and themes that western media has failed to do so far. I'm sick of the same old cop drama and soap opera scandal shows. They're boring and offer nothing new. Anime is a lot more interesting than that.

Hopefully you're not autistic enough to actually discuss what you get off to other than your close friends.

I actually pretended to be caught masturbating once by my father to avoid him seeing the weird shit I watch.
>>
>>102102087
No, but there were occasiosn when my friends mentioned it and the other people didn´t gave a fuck or said that they had done it once or twice.
Fapping to hentai is becoming a pretty normalfag thing lately.

Explain the plots from Ghibli and Hosoda movies then. If she wants a show, go with something like a mecha with romantic elements. She'll get so bored with the mecha stuff she'll stop bothering you about it.

You don't faggot. You should never even mention you watch it to anyone. There is literally no benefit to other people knowing you watch anime.
>>
>>102099188
The huge diversity, enjoyable art and "it's fun".

I literally stopped caring about other people knowing it was my hobby once I stopped being a teenager. It really doesn't matter. If someone wants to talk about it, yea why not, if they don't - why would I? Although it's not like I'm walking outside with a naked lolitshirt.
>>
>>102102732
Except that you can discuss it with other people who like it. It's not all that much of a niche hobby anymore.
Of course most people will be Narutards or Snk fags
>>
>>102102700
Goddamn that sucks, you have my sympathy. I don't know what I would do in your situation, I could live wihtout anime I guess but I'm a writer by profession . I guess I'd move away from them ASAP.
>>
>>102102700
>don´t asking for money for all your birthdays
I might sound like a jew, but I just ask people to give me money for my birthday.
I´m either getting clothes or some useless shit otherwise so I prefer getting money and usign it in whatever the fuck I want.
>>
>>102099188

Nobody cares what you do with your free time for the most part. It's like asking people why they watch football. Nobody does it. Just don't push it and no one cares. I'm always amazed how much people on this board think other people give a shit about what you do like there's nothing else going on in their lives.
>>
>>102102700
>getting gifts from your parents at 21
Is that normal? I'm 23 and my grandmother still sends me birthday money I guess. Mind you.. I've been giving my parents money lately.

Maybe you should stop being a fat sack of shit and move out.
>>
>>102102788
You only talk about anime if the other person mentions it first and doesn't look like a faggot. And of course if you already knew them. You should never meet people because of anime.
>>
Me and my brother have never had any issues explaining our hobbies to neither family nor friends. My brother likes doing model kits and he has a 4 foot tall Gundam right on the middle of his living room. My mom doesn't like the mess he leaves (he had to set one room entirely for model kits, and has the entire house full of military and anime model kits, figurines and other stuff), but she understands that everybody likes different shit, and since we have other hobbies, she doesn't worry. His gf is a different matter, I don't think she really approves of his hobbies.

I want to give him a daki of his favorite mecha, but I can't find any.
