My mom usually teases me when I'm watching all the moe type of shows I watch. Both my parents don't really care.

My mom doesn't even know what Anime is, but she doesn't care as long as she doesn't catch me watching porn (Actually, anything in an anime that makes me fangasm is considered porn to me.) And, I'm pretty sure my dad knows I watch anime and read manga and stuff, but he doesn't care. xD

No. She "doesn't see the value in it". Moms words exactly. I think she tolerates it because I'm engaged in that rather than out getting into trouble......

I don't think my mom really knows, and my dad is always like: why do you like to watch those stupid Japanese cartoons?

So I guess...no?

Nope my dad says "all of these stupid Japanese shows are the same with the guys saying "I'm the strongest" or the girls going "teehee" sounds funny when he says it though

My parents never really knew. I never tried to hide it or anything, my family always just did their own stuff mainly.

My parents know and they are fine with it. My mom helps me out with my cosplays.

In fact, my dad knows someone at work that enjoys anime/manga (she also cosplays too).

My dad actually watched the two Madoka Magica films with me and enjoyed it. He also put the Madoka poster in his office. He is also going to the Blue Exorcist screening with me and the person metioned above.

I guess I'm lucky.

My mom could care less. She doesn't like it, but she's fine with it.

My dad loves it. His favourite anime is Bleach. He also likes Inuyasha and Naruto. In fect, whenever I watch ecchi and he sees a scene, he will make fun of me and mock the scene randomly during the day.

One day I showed him the shower scene from Railgun and he kept rubbing his chest and wriggling around whenever I saw him. I was like " Daddy stop it! Mom will see you D8"

As long as I get good grades in school and keep my personality a float I can get free manga at Amazon 24/7

Its usually that they just sit at the sidelines but when I start watching something Attack on Titan, Psycho-Pass, Deadman Wonderland, or Baccano! then they join in. My Dad even came with me to anime expo last year. It was pretty awkward with him there.... a lucy cosplay stood in front of him while I was dancing in the Touhou Dance Workshop
