My mom has a problem with me when I go crazy over anime, but she's finally accepting it into my life. Anime is a part of my life, I can't help but watch it, listen to it or read manga.

My dad has a problem with it though. It doesn't understand what anime is, I guess I could say. He's always why you watching that, you should be watching something educational and stuff. But I don't care. I am who I am.

My friends are half in half some are into anime and some aren't. The ones that don't like it, they accept for him I am and don't jugde me about it. The ones that do love talk about constantly and fangirl over the hot boys and stuff so, yeah.

My family have no interest in in what so ever (my sister has a slight interest I suppose) but I don't expect them to. My friends though, they couldn't care less; whenever I make references to anime they look at me strangely and don't listen. It kind of annoys me because they don't even give it a chance. Though this is the exception of two of my friends. Both of them have said they want to try to watch Naruto and Death Note so I appreciate that.

got two new friends because of it but my others friends...they just tease me about it (which annoys the heck out of me since i dont find it funny), they think its stupid and sometimes look down on it. My family.....my sister thinks im weird but doesnt tell me anything, my mom thinks im just watching weird cartoons in another language...my dad he has watched dbz before and liked it but he doesnt really know what anime is and i have no intention of telling them cuz they would also make fun of me and tease me.

I recently watched watched Elfen Lied again with my mother(her first time seeing it), at first she laughed about me watching these naked cartoon girls and such, then not long after she got sucked into the story.

We got to ep. 6 before she had to go to bed, then the next day, as soon as she got home she wanted to see the rest.
I knew she liked it, she had a quiver in her voice :D

My fav. quote from her: "This is confusing, who is the bad people, and who is the good people?"
She got her answer later on. Now ot get her to start reading the manga. This will be tougher to do.

My friends are far more concerned about my creeping and internet porn habits than they are about my interests in anime.

My roommate has strictly forbidden me from watching anything but sports in the living room when guests are over though, and after one incident which I will not go into details on i'm no longer allowed to watch hentai, ecchi, or anything that could be mistaken for hentai or ecchi outside of my room. She also now shouts at me from outside my room before walking in to see if i'm watching anything that will give her nightmares.


Oh wow lol that is much funnier than it should be.

Mom thinks Studio Ghibli is awesome so she likes it. Dad doesn't even really know what it is. Cousins love anime too and friends like it as well. I've never really had a problem with anyone but it's not like I'm some weaboo telling everyone I love it or something. hahaha

The friends I have that aren't into anime will ask me things about it or just accept it's something I love and spend a lot of time doing. The ones that do love it will break into conversation with me about anime and what we watch. I've already spent a lot of time studying South East Asia so the people that know me well, such as my mom, are already used to me being intrigued by Asian culture.

My family thinks it is a waste of time watching "cartoons." Only my twin sister understands it coz she was the one who got me hooked to this. I have no friends that watches anime and I don't talk about it that much. My ex wasn't that interested until I made her watch K-On and Toradora. Now she's addicted to it and still asks me about good RomCom animes. Would be nice to have friends who watches anime. Must be fun to talk about it with them. /sadlife

I watch anime with my friends VIA skype (we sync by counting down to start the video.)
My family never really "reacted", just whatever.

Mother- ...Interesting. And..you like this because...?
Father- Oh yeah! I love how funny it can be! Glad you found something you like. How do you say it again?
CLOSE friends- How could someone so sexy be so EVIL~! I want him so baaaaad~!
REG. friends- Uh-huh. Yeah. Cool. I can see you watching that. Okay I have to do something more fun than this show.
Most relatives- Ohh tell them that show with the girl with the big boobs, again! Man, it was so weird!
Yours Truly:
Uhhh...Yes, I agree. It's fun to watch and I love the plots. Now! You obviously don't care in the slightest so let's move on!
Anime is like a 6th sense. Most of my romance ideas come from Mangas, and they work.
...Most of the time.
