Hey there, anime lover here :3 I watch not just the stuff that comes on Toonami but have watched many other animes online. If I saw a cool anime shirt, hoodie, etc. I'm not too sure if I would get it or not. I usually don't care what people have to say about my fashion sense, my style is pretty diverse so wearing something anime related wouldn't be a big deal to me. I don't think its any different than wearing a shirt with your favorite band on it. But some people are just sooo judgmental when it comes to anime. But at the same time, I feel like most people wouldn't even know it's anime unless it's super anime-y (yes I know that's not a word). Like say if I wore a shirt with just the Attack on Titan survey corps logo on it. I don't think most people would know what it was unless they were fellow anime watchers themselves, you know? Do you anime lovers wear any thing anime related out in public?
Most Helpful Guy
I know some who do. It's a mix of embarrassment, disgust, and envy for me haha.
I don't like to be recognised as an otaku. But i am familiar with far more anime than the average guy. Though I'm still casual compared to the hardcore fans.
Plus i can't find any good anime shirts that are discrete. Most of them feature girls from harem shows (i don't watch that) or are too obvious with the characters (giant picture of chopper or luffy urgh). I saw one cool shirt that had Psychopass's dominator gun printed. But it also printed the word Dominator, which is suspiciously like I'm a Dominatrix? Lol. Anyway, extremely hard to find anime shirts, and they don't exactly let you try it on. Cause i also have difficulty finding sizes for normal shirts, I have wide shoulders and not very tall.1
