We can relate to kids and teens because we were one, you can't relate to adults because you never were one. When you hit 30 and realize that you feel exactly the same as you did when you were 15 doesn't make you immature it means you can hold onto the things you love much longer than others.

My parents still think anime is for kids.

but I know I'm going to be a parent who'll still watch animes 20 years from now

I have been watching anime and reading manga since I was 16 and I don't think I will stop anytime soon.
I will say having a baby girl has made me more aware of the types of anime I watch and I find that I might be embarrassed if she saw me watch them.

My parents aren't into anime by any stretch of the imagination, but they know and respect the fact that I like it. My mom even did some research one Christmas and bought me my first Hayao Miyazaki movie

My parents hate to see me watching Anime cause they say I'm old enough to continue doing so.
Seriously, they don't understand the fun behind it. It's not like I'm locking myself in my room just to watch Anime. I know my limitations.

Its better when your parents walk into your room, look at your computer screen and go "what the hell is that?". Its basically nature! If my Dad started watching anime, especially in its slightly perverted ways most of the time I'd be freaked out.

But we are the new generation so when we have kids we'll be like "oh yeah I used to watch anime shows" or will you still watch it? Mysteryyyy

I'm a parent and I love anime unfortunately only my oldest(who will be 28 this year) is the only one of my 4 kids that loves anime as much as I do. My other 3 (19, 23, 26) like some anime but they don't go out of their way to watch different types like my oldest and I do or even talk about the different ones we have watched like my oldest and I do. I also happen to be a parent who plays WoW and still loves to play video games considering my husband and I brought up our kids in a gaming environment (mainly Historical miniatures gaming society, HMGS) our family vacations use to be going to gaming conventions.

I got into anime and manga late, but have found alot of gamers like anime as well. And most of my gaming friends are around my age or older in some cases and have children, and still watch anime and play online games. I think there is nothing wrong with that as long as you are paying attention to your children and doing your job as a parent (we don't exactly want our role model to be Clara from the Guild - if you haven't seen those webisodes, google The Guild - you will love it!).
I am working on a family now, and I can tell you that I will probably not give up watching my anime, reading my manga, or playing my MMO's - currently playing Tera (but a veteran of Lineage, Lineage 2 and Aion). I also find time to read, watch a little TV (LOVE The Walking Dead!!!), gardening, my 9 to 5 job, housework, visiting family, etc. There is such a thing as a balance, but I don't think there is any reason to give up something just because you become a parent by any means. I still plan on going to the amusement parks too, until my equilibrium can't take it anymore!

My mom and dad both approve of anime, though my mom always complains I watch it all the time (but mostly it's all in her head.) Plus I'm pretty sure both of them don't like it when the voices are too high-pitched.

I wonder if I'll be a parent who likes anime, and other related things~

OK. I'm a 62 year old professional and consider myself an adult. I enjoy SOME anime and fins myself gravitating to "Slice of Life" type shows. Manga / anime are one place that creative writers can tell stories and develop characters without as much expense as mainstream TV, theater, etc. Series like Giant Killing, Usage Drop, Working/Wagnaria or Chihayafuru and so on are not likely what most adults would expect from the medium yet these have good character development and frequently address real personal philosophical issues. Yeah, there are lots of "Robots from Planet Zoop" or "Boob and Panties" , but typical databases will list 2000 to 5000 entire anime series. There is something for adults. We all learn not to do the Google search for "adult anime" when we are looking for series whit a "grown-up" theme. There is more than Cowboy Bebop out there.

I believe that every adult here should make their children watch the anime School Days, it's a great slice of life anime. See what I did there?

My mom is almost 50 and she enjoys watching anime with my sister and I. One time we were watching Gankutsuou when she came home and we offered her the tv but she happily replied " no this is fine" and we ended up watching most of the series in that sitting. I'm really glad that she can enjoy the hobby as much as I do

I'm both a parent, and a grandparent. I've been enjoying anime since the early 1970's, when I lived in Yokohama.
I make no apologies for it, FueledbyRamen, nor do I flaunt my hobby.
Your apparent, western-centric bias towards animation ("animation/cartoons are just for kids"), only serves to cripple the advancement of quality, animated shows on this side of the Pacific.
Good stories, animated, are the bread of life for me.
My grown son and daughter both enjoy GOOD anime, as do my grandkids.
