    haha but alcohols goooooood!!!!
    i mean, im not much of drug, smoke, sex kind of person.
    i go to parties, but i always stay away from those shit.
    but alcohol smells good and tastes good!!!

    and my parents wont listen to me because im already a pretty good reader and i get straight As at school so they know that i dont need to develope my writing and language skills by reading mangas =/

    Well, don't overdo it and dont party too often.

    I'm not the one to talk tho lol but it's not good for you. 13 IS too young in my opinion.
    I'm not saying that i didn't drink at that age, i'm rather saying that it's not good and i know that now.

    As for reading / writing, there's always room for improvement. The younger you are the better. Maybe not by reading mangas tho hmm..

    Anywho, i'm never getting bullied because i'm reading mangas and watching animes because i compensate that with my awesome skills with teh gurlz (i lol'd) !!!

    haha, yeah, i have social life that is completely apart from manga/anime, too. we talk about hot guys, dramas, rumors, and GOSSIP GIRL!!! lol, yeah, i am 13.

    and i dont drink often. i drink sometimes when theres some delicious alcohol at home . it's not like i get drunk or anythin.

    Ah yeh, well as long as you're not drinking because you want to get drunk. As in "wow that's cool, being drunk liek is teh shit"
    That's the worst reason ever.

    In my opinon

    (it feels like we're abit off topic now)

    *rushing back to on-topic in case GK or someone is watching the thread*

    Sooo... what did you say about reading mangas / watching animes?

    Apart from the facts that
    My parents dont give a f*ck,
    My mate's keeps saying that i have a thing for hentai just because i'm watching naruto
    And my gf thinks that it's "cute"

    It's nothing anyone really cares about. :P

    haha, my mom thought it was disgusting that im obsessed with yaoi couples. she told me that she will kill me (im pretty sure it was literal) if i read or watch anything R18. but i dont. im just enjoying myself a little with non-explicit ones

    and it's kinda weird that ur gf thinks that it's "cute..."
    well actually, not really cuz my ex thought that it was pretty cool so he became an otaku. im still friends with him and all we talk about is manga lol

    Well, I suppose I'm one of the lucky ones then. I've got a nice group of friends who read manga/watch anime as well, and as a matter of fact, they were the ones who introduced it to me. (I then proceeded to get myself hopelessly addicted. :P ) Most of my classmates actually watch some animes as well, and even our biology teacher reads Bleach, although she's not really up to date.

    My school is quite open to these things, I guess. We respect that everyone has different tastes.

    My mother doesnt really care. Not sure if she is even sure if she still remembers what anime and manga are (iv explained to her multiple times). I think she knows that it has something to do with some Asian place/people. :-/

    At school people dont seem to really care. The people I hang out with watch anime (A few of them) and one reads manga. Im trying to get as many people as possible to read manga and watch anime. Some like it, others dont.

    But in general people dont really seem to care much
    I dont get much flak and if I do I just ignore the person.

    Re: Do You Get Flak For Being A Fan of Anime/Manga?

    I've never gotten any flak because people don't really know that I like anime/manga. I used to be a closet otaku (well not really otaku...), but then I started telling my friends about Naruto. Apparently Naruto is really popular in Portugal now! I keep hearing people talking about the show in school and also in public buses (which I have to use...). And it's not just guys either.

    Anyway, I'm just a normal guy who happens to like manga and anime, and there's nothing wrong with that.

    Re: Do You Get Flak For Being A Fan of Anime/Manga?

    Never actually gotten flack about being a fan of anime/manga. Other than my younger brother (well he's not that young, he's 21) who doesn't like anime much as I do, I've been around alot of friends who have the same interest as me. We discuss alot of the manga, and we do have our disagreements (my friend thinks naruto is the best manga created, while I think it's just medicore,average)

    Luckily my girlfriend is also anime/ manga fan. However, I would say she's more an otaku than I am. She really LOVES full metal alchemeist alot. Hell she's trying to get me to be Colonel Mustang for next year's fananime.. *-_-

    But other than that, I haven't gotten flack for it. Seeing as I draw alot (well I want to do this for a living) I've been getting encouragement from my art teachers.

    Heh not to mention my friend. She's a lover of anime/manga. We tend to help each other out. She draws girls very well, while I tend to draw guys more better (shounen style that is).

    Opening this back up... maybe.

    I kept it a secret for the longest time, till I met my girlfriend who goes to cons and the like. Friggin lucky.

    Do people even KNOW I like Anime/Manga?

    It's to easy to just say your "gaming".

    No, I think the flak I get comes from my quiet reclusiveness.

    :/
