Nope, my parents want nothing to do with Anime. My aunt even calls it gay, i'm like " What's homosexual about watching girls with adnormally large breasts walk around in revealing clothing?". Old people these days.

My mother's fine with it, but has no idea how to shop for me. My father's always been a fan of wire-fu movies, and I've slowly been introducing him to select anime as well with decent results.

My parents grew up watching anime as did I. Way back when we'd watch Inuyasha, Dragon Ball Z and old school stuff like that. Needless to say, I grew into a bit of an Otaku while they stopped watching Anime so much. They still like it, and I recently got my Dad into Blue Exorcist and both of them into Attack on Titan. So no, they don't mind at all. My brothers, on the other hand.......

At first they told me it was a weird thing, but not they see how much I love certain things, and how I care for the stuff I collect.

My parents are well and truly aware, I have a bunch of anime posters in my room and I talk about anime a fair bit.
They're fine with it, but they aren't too happy about how much they end up spending on my birthday

I'm trying to get my Mum to watch Usagi Drop with me. She watches a lot of live-action shows chronicling the lives of parents, so, I know she'll love it, but she insists that she won't purely because it's anime. We eventually struck up the deal that if I watch a bunch of her 80s movies with her, she'll watch a couple of anime with me. We haven't gotten around to it yet, though. We need to set some time aside.

I'm also trying to get my Dad to watch Monster. He'll probably end up watching the HBO adaptation, if it goes forward.

My parents are kinda old fashioned, they don't understand anime and they don't try to understand. But they realize that I like it and have for a long time.

Yup. I love how my mom tries to fit in with us when she clearly can't and she knows it.

Mine think I'm weird and don't understand why I spend all my free time and money on my "little addiction."

My grandmother is okay with me liking anime and she supports me. ( However she hates going to the Anime Store with me because I spend too much time in there to her. ) She's just about the only one though that supports me and is okay with it. My mother doesn't understand it. While my older sister gets annoyed every time I watch it when she's around and thinks it's pretty stupid. Everyone else around me thinks it's dumb and for losers.
Welp, guess I'm a loser then.
