When people decide not to be friends with you because of it. One of friends said she prob wouldn’t have been friends w me if she knew ahead of time that i watches anime, even tho we became really good friends.
I hate it when ppl try to force ships onto u or when they put u down for liking certain ships (I understand if it’s a minor x older ship tho) or if they put u down for cosplaying or having a crush on characters. That annoys me a lot.
The reason people are turned off when people say they watch anime is probably because, to be honest, most of the anime community is immature and some of it is really toxic. Not as bad as the gamer community, but ironically people seem to accept gamers more easily. I’m both, so I see both sides.
