My family has 'accepted' it, although sometimes I notice a slight "hmmmm...." Facial expression aiming my way. Same thing with a few of my gaming titles too like LBP, Castle Crashers and Ni No Kuni.

Indifference and some snubbing of my tastes, except for my younger sister, brother-in-law, step-brother, and Japanese cousin (One of my uncles married a Japanese-Indonesian woman who had a daughter. My uncle is in the Navy, and they met while he was stationed in Japan.). Those four are ardent fans of anime and manga.

My family is fine with it. My father is a bit of a gamer, and my sister is into anime too. My mom is the only one who probably doesn't really get it but it doesn't bother her.

I've never gotten a negative reaction before. Most of my close friends know and if some don't, it's because it hasn't come up in conversation or anything.
My family poke fun at me sometimes (mainly because I watch anime 24/7 pretty much) but in a joking manner. My mom even enjoys watching anime with me sometimes.

Parents: they think it's weird and they tried to get me away from it when i was nine (thats when I started watching it a LOT) but now they just dont care, I watch it online and use headphones so they dont have to put up with it, they still think its weird though

siblings: my sister thinks it is a strange interest, and my brothers dont seem to hold an opinion towards it.

friends: what friends I have either dont think it's weird or are interested themselves

acquaintances (for sake of definition these are just "friends" that i don't make an effort to hang out with): they range from showing same interest to thinking its just creepy, but hey I've never been one to listen to the opinions of the masses.

others: IDK i dont know people outside of the predetermined boundaries...

Well, times have changed over the years in my case.

Family:
Ages 16~19 -> "You are still watching cartoons, why?!"
Ages 20~25 -> "Why are you still watching those Japanese cartoons?! Haven't you outgrown them by now?"
Ages 25~now -> "My son/brother organizes an anual film festival and has been to Japan several times. He really knows a lot about it and it's his passion."

Friends and coleagues:
Most of my friends enjoy anime as well, and even those that aren't actual anime fans know and have seen several Ghibli titles for example.
My coleagues occasionally come to me for advise.

My family thinks my interest in anime is interesting. My dad is starting to like some (SOME, may I emphasize) of the stuff I watch it, but my mom just doesn't talk about it at all. If I mention any anime related things to her, she just says "oh, interesting," and that's the end of the conversation.
