1. they think its stupid
2. lowering grades...animes didn't really cause it...its more of me being bored...btw my grades just lowered by one or two each subject...except for tennis...lol
3. sleeping times during summer...not the cause either...
4. i don't respond to them anymore when they ask for something...(wtf...they should do it on their own...then they get angry because if im the one who asked for something they will say get it yourself...gahhh...pisses me off)
5. they think im not serious enough in my studies...yes, im one of those asian kids who have parents that want their child to be valedictorian...but not me...salutatorian is enough for me...even 3rd or 4th is even enough for me...but yeah...they're one of those parents

i can still go one...and i mean a really long list, but im too lazy and i know u don't really like to read a bunch of stuffs too...lol

lastly, because i stopped getting enough sleep, i always end up being sick


are your parents loco its art not cartoons, i graduated with honors watching anime, i watch all day on the computer and it's not that expensive, well sleep is good, but if it's for anime stay up, parents,ha


i guess so, no matter how many times i explain to them that its called anime, and watching it does not affect my grades and i will still graduate even if i watch them all the time.. they just can't understand.. then they resort to the "don't you know how to conserve energy" speech and the "don't you understand that if you don't get enough sleep you'll end up in the hospital again" speech..
i guess they can never understand..

I guess some parents get irritated at the fact that they have kids who are upwards to 13 or 14, still watching "cartoons" when they should be watching... ... I really don't know what most preteens watch at that age, because all I did was play video games.

My parents didn't care up to the day I moved out (a little over a week ago) and don't now. They don't encourage it per se because anime is about 80% of the time more appropriate for children and I agree. Even some 'adult' shows seem better suited for a kid a bit to into girls for his age. Parents will often discourage it as it seems to be stunting the child. When they see their 15, 16 year old watching stuff like vampire knight or something else better suited for atleast 12 year olds then I would step in too.

Edit: Look at me talking with the Chi's Sweet Home Image but 95% of the time I'm hunting for more complex interesting shows. I'll be honest. I haven't seen a good show in months.
