Well speaking as a parent, I have no problem with anime. I love it. It's something that I do with my kids. I've been going to the cons with my 2 oldest for years, and this august my youngest (12) is going to her first con. I can't tell you how many times my living room has been destroyed during their cosplay construction parties/sleepovers. We've met a lot of cool people from all over the world, and it's a lot of fun. And I'm not the only one, go to a con and look around, all those old people there, those are the parents. = )
As far as what my parents thought. 'Speed Racer' and 'Robotech' were just more cartoons.

My parents think "anime is perverted". Like they generalize all of it together. Yes, there is perverted anime (Desert Punk, Mouse, etc).... but most anime is not perverted (I don't count fanservice as perverted)

My mom just complains about me not going outside and staying in front of the computer screen all day. And every time i come home from a con, she lectures me about spending my money on 'stupid cartoons' and how it's a waste to buy manga. It just gets annoying after awhile.

i think you misunderstood

what i meant was that not many older people who have not been exposed to anime as a child would right it off as silly cartoons for little kids without giving it a chance

haha....my parents really don't care because I don't take money from them to buy stuff (I'm responsible for the dvd's and mangas)!! ......but sometimes they're shocked when they saw some scenes of the ecchi, shounen-ai parts and some other weird stuff cause they think that anime is like just a cartoon you know for "kids"........

You are correct, they do wright it off as silly cartoons. I take allot of flack because I watch silly cartoons, but you and I both know that they're not. The content of most of the story lines is way above the "little kid" range.

well ya they just asked me lots of pointless questions, like is it good? why do u like it? etc....then they lecture me about how life isnt simple and that my world cant just be at the computer day and night... it gets annoying! to the point where the words dont even have meaning anymore....


Face it. I get scolded by my parents for doing that sort of shit during school days. Your parents are telling you that because it is true and will hold true once you grow up. They will slap life lessons into your face, whether you like it or not, until you like it or accept it. Stuff happens to me - happened just last night when I was laughing at internet hijinx while printing my homework.

My parents, though, don't understand anime too well (they think it's similar to cartoons in most aspects), but at least they know what me and my brother feel about it. In fact, I think my dad is trailing on my being a biased prick when it comes to most anime. My elder brother downloads a lot, and my dad is not angry over the fact that he watches anime - he gets angry because the stuff my brother downloads fills up hard disk space.

tl;dr - My parents don't hate anime, but they're on the lookout for our social and future lives and want to make sure it's developed well.
