Young kids shouldn't be watching those anime, even if they LOOK innocent(Haruhi, Lucky Star, Love Hina, etc), because they're PG-13+. If parents are so concerned, they should limit their children to watching anime that are rated G or PG, such as Doraemon, Chibi Maruko Chan, Samurai Pizza Cats, Pokemon, Yugioh, Miyazaki movies, etc.

Some western parents tend to just group all anime into the "violent, sexual, bad for kids" type group, that's their fault for not knowing that anime is a very general term in Japan, and that there are specific genres and targeted ages within anime.

Anime in Japan isn't just a children's thing. It's just like how live action Movies in America can be for different ages. Anime is not like most western cartoons, which are mostly for children.

Anyway, my parents probably don't care. I mean, it's true that I'm like an antisocial Hikokimori irl, and spend way too much time on the computer, but that was before I had an obsession in anime. Plus they know that I get alot of my artistic style and inspiration from anime, as well as relearning the Japanese language that I had forgotten as a kid. They know there are anime series with good morals in it, such as Pokemon and Miyazaki movies. My mother really likes Miyazaki's movies.

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.


ummmm......well my parents are super strict and they think that im this perfect, smart girl and whenever i watch anime they do that so it gets annoying

Speaking as a father I try to expose my son to Anime as much as possible. Hes only 3, but I
d like for him to grow up with fond memories of watching Studio Ghibli films as a kid AND growing to appriciate different aspects of the art as he grows up.

Parents don't hate anime, they hate things that distract you from performing well in school or socially. What these parents fail to realize is that if it wasn't anime it would be some other scapegoat; comic books, poetry, garage bands, current pop culture history is full of stuff kids would rather do than that they're suppoosed to be doing.

I'm 25 now, but it wasn't so long ago _I_ was on the pioneering front lines of tape dubs: back before you kids and your fancy internets could just come to cruncy roll and watch anime.


Man, I think you might have the right idea.

Parents hate animes?

Can the thread maker show some evidence about that fact?
Like a scientific study or something like that?

It can rather be so that parents don't like their kids to watch violent and very perverted animes, so the children wont turn to become weird in their way of thinking and behaving.

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


It's mainly because of generation gap. That's it and its effect on the our generation may look crazy on a neutral point of view.

1 of my parents hates it.. they scream at me.. all the time. if im even watching a cartoon.
they tell me to watch the news or something such as that.. wow.. there such a jerk to me.


depends. theres bad ones to ppl like parents such as hentai.. but i mean if they were to supervise or even watch/ check what they're going to show their kids i don't see why its bad.. cartoons are for everyone not just kids.

people watch normal television and have social discussions about what they're watching. i dont think it makes people antisocial. also theres usually conventions you can go to. to me its nerdy but the whole family can go and learn about Japanese things or for the outing.

not only that anime comes in all types of forms.. like teen series to action to fantasy what ever your interested in.. its comes in comic book/mangas.

sure anyone can go out and do normal things and still watch it.. sometimes its a good way to relax after a long day. but i still like it.. i don't like going out to clubs every night.. yeah that means im a social person.. but its expensive its nice to not have to pay for so much and just relax at home.


its also a lot better then being with ppl who do drugs or things like that i know too many ppl that do them, i notice a lot of ppl ive met who watch anime dont do drugs. just looking at the positives. not saying they, everyone as a whole doesnt though.

*rants*
wow that even makes more sense. :o
true the gap.. between time and when they didnt have the internet. :P

but. i honestly think the internet would be better then the world today
with horrible things that go on.. *not going to state anything*

i'm not trying to dramatize things its good to get out of the house
too just saying..

1 of my parents met their spouse online. and yet... they yell at me for watching anime..
arent they the ones that tell you not to meet ppl on the internet.. i guess thats
for younger kids but still you never know ^^

My parents had no objections to me watching anime.
My mother didn't understand it at first but when that passed, she became far more of an otaku then me... Yes it's as horrible as it sounds, she would spend hours nagging me on the phone asking when the next Naruto/Bleach episode came out. Then one day (luckely) she downloaded uTorrent, so she could get the episodes herself.
B.T.W. she also completed "TES: Oblivion" before me... and is halfway through "Hellgate: London"

My father, however, is another story. He introduced me to computer games, anime and manga (plus various other "otaku" related subjects)
