Would your parents ever watch an anime series if you convinced them to?? for me probably not lol, theyre too old school but i think i can make them watch an anime movie instead. So how would your parents handle it?

I was actually able to convince my mom to watch Kanon (2006) with me, in subtitles no less. We have now finished that, the first season of Clannad, and now I have started her on Clannad ~After Story~ since I was finally able to buy it.

My dad use to sometimes enjoy watching Dragonball or Detective Conan. He likes to make fun of the downfalls of shows though and get's a bit picky sometimes. It's a bit annoying, so I would rather him not watch them. :p

My mom watches some anime. Only dubs though. She really likes Death Note, Neon Genesis Evangelion, the early Bleach seasons, Cowboy Bebop... I've gotten my bro into a few titles -- FMA and Code Geass, mostly, but he continues to say that it's weird and that everything I watch is gay...My dad is a no-go. He doesn't like to watch/read fictitious stuff in the first place, anyway, so yeah. He likes some Ghibli films though. Pretty sure my uncle is into anime too, cuz he is a HUGE nerd and loves all of nerdom, but I don't see him a lot so...

Currently I am trying to get my bro to watch Durarara!! He keeps refusing. He's been refusing for over a year now. I let one thing slip about implied Shizaya and his homophobia flares all up... I don't think my mother would ever like something like DRRR, so I don't even try with her. I think she'd like Un-Go, though, so I'm hoping she'll let me buy the DVD xD

Not necessarily try talking them into it rather, putting an anime on her Television to try to get her convinced, lol. I can vaguely remember which anime it was... It was Kiki's Delivery Service, lmao. She eventually watched it till the end but I inferred that would be the last anime she'll EVER watch. Lol. So nah, my mom doesn't have the taste for anime. Perhaps I should put something different... Perhaps Elfen Lied and/or Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (1st season).

my whole family hates to watch tv all together, my mum yells at me if i try to watch tv while the younger kids are around or watching it while eating dinner

eventually i went f**k this and bought my own laptop to watch shows... then i realised how close minded and repetitive normal shows are, thats why the only thing ill ever watch is anime... and game of thrones

No, my mom thinks Fairy Tail is violent, so that explains it.
But when Naruto use to come on Tv I would force her to watch it with me

I'm the only one who into anime in my family -_-
Even my lil bro didn't watch anime.
So, there's like no way my mom and dad watch anime. I'm lucky enough they let me watch some violent anime, buy anime/manga magazine, collect manga books, and collect other otaku-ish stuff.

Very easily. But it's hard for me to choose an anime that I feel comfortable watching with my Mum.

Yup! My mom is really strict though so I have to be careful about what anime I let her watch.

We started with Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, and My Neighbor Totoro. Then after the earthquake, I thought she might want to see Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, which she loved. Then we watched Air and now we are working on Kanon 2006. After that, we are going to watch Clannad.
