I only have one friend that shares my interest in manga & anime (the person who introduced me to it) so yes I am sort of embarrassed to let my other friends know I read manga.

***extremely supprised at the results of the poll - I thought it would be reversed ***

I don't quite consider myself an otaku though, although I may have been borderline in highschool, so I don't really consider it that big of an issue. Reading manga really isn't that different from casually reading a novel every once in a while; at least that is my opinion on it. Of course if no one brings the subject up I wouldn't ever divulge it myself.

people should do what they want to do rather than what other people want them to do so why should anybody be embarrassed there are far worse hobbies out there than reading manga and if a person does not like you because you read manga then would you really call that a friend

I'll admit that I am, because not that many of my friends read manga. A lot of them hate anime and manga in general.

if its shonen i think 150/14 is avg speed i.e 150*20=3000.....if shojo i'd say that's awesome 6000 pages (40/chapter on avg).......i completed hajime no ippo (till it is scantalated 904 chapters) in 3 days biggrin

but when i sit down with my engineering book every chapter takes eternity laugh laugh

well as far as telling ur frnds goes they saw me and were all amazed at the unique storylines of anime/manga....some of them even got addicted to anime through me(poor souls) ......and bug me for more sad

shinichi X ran
natsu X erza
ippo X kumi

Hmm not really a straight answer for this one... my two best friends and I discuss anime and manga quite a bit, a few others know about it and think its weird, but they're okay with it. But no I do not declare to the world that I read manga for a multitude of reasons.

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.

I was first kind of embarrassed to say that I'm addicted to mangas.

But it's a very big part of me, because I read a lot (as you can see in my reading an complete lists). I even found my ex boyfriend thanks to those mangas (after an irl) laugh ! I met great friends and all. I also know old friends reading manga, my flatmate too etc. I just CAN'T be embarrassed anymore I guess. x) However it still is strange sometimes to say it.

I'll say like daisy237 that my friends know I'm a bit weird so they aren't surprised whatever I can tell them roll
