parents in general hate anime or just don't understand it

what did your parents do when they learned you watch it


this is not a duplicate because what i'm asking is for how they act towards you when they found out you watch anime example: did they ask if you could understand the characters

This seems like a duplicate.

But they did not care V_V and yes most parents dislike anime.

They hate it? My parents have no interest in it, but have no real objection.

My only problem was the many sketchbooks of anime drawings that my mother would not acknowledge as official art, for a while anyway.

Other than that, they don't think about it much.

I think what parents might hate is the obsessive/expensive/"antisocial" otaku behaviour that is usually associated with anime. SInce most parents want their children to be involved in the "real world" and not spend hours and hundreds of dollars on anything.

My parents probably didn't object because anime started as a very social thing with my friends and I

whats worst....having you kids at home watching anime or having your kids out having sex and doing drugs? I think most parents think it's childish to watch anime but it could be a hell of a lot worst. my parents don't care because before anime I was out having sex and doing drugs

Hmm. Well, I'm a parent, and Anime is just like "live action" where there is some stuff that's not good for little kids to see because of graphic violence, sexual things, and stuff like that.

There are two things that seem to be accepted in Anime that ARE bad for kids, or anyone else for that matter, and they are that often women are treated very badly (lots of unwanted sexual touch like in Ai Yori Aoshi, Please Twins, and Melacholy, and lots of rape like in Ninja Scroll) and that some times younger kids are treated as sex objects. You don't usually see this kind of stuff in live-action, at least not in the USA.

Otherwise, I know some parents who have kids who have some great skills in Anime style artwork and even writing some crazy Anime/Manga storylines with original characters, and these parents are proud of their kid's talents.
