So just a little poll for everyone to answer, I do know that some friends their parents are pretty reluctant to them being Otaku's SO I thought I"d ask YOU Crunchyroll's finest!!!

As for me, my parents know I am an Otaku but they don't give a single shnitzel about it!

Mom's fine with me being one, however she dislikes anime, themselves.

Except my biological father. He loves it, he's just not around. Step dad I'm unsure of.

Yes they do know and they don't care. I mean as long as I don't screw up with my grades in college and my job then personally I don't think they can get mad at me lol. Also i'm 21 so I doubt they can complain about my otaku ways.

My dad is perfectly happy with me being a complete dork, my mom not so much but she doesn't mind too much anymore.
My dad even went to Anime Boston with me, it was nice to know he had a fun time too. He enjoyed seeing people dressed up. There was a crew dressed up as the Les Mis cast and he loved that.

My parents don't mind, I've been to many anime conventions without them saying anything.
My parents would always buy me anime series when I was a kid. and I'm talking about OLD SCHOOL laserdisc sets, if you don't know what a laserdisc is you should google it!

I get teased and jeered at about it because I watch so much of it...so probably not, but I'm a college graduate so they can't do nothing bout it.

Daaaaaaang! That IS old school lol. I've never even seen a laserdisc set, but I know what they are at least

Eh, parents don't care and have never said anything about it to me. They don't really understand either, but after years of watching anime and going to conventions,they've accepted it as a part of me.

My parent's are all chill with it, my mother often joins me watching anime. That being said, I'm not much of an Otaku outwardly, anyway.

My parents don't care as long as my grades are good, as a matter of fact, my mom is the person who got me hooked on anime

They're okay with it. They refer to anime as "so gay," but they realize that it's one of my interests.

They were surprised at first, but then accepted it. I am similar to them, but have also been quite different. There was nothing they could do about it and it just became another aspect of me.
