To begin with, I wouldn't call myself an otaku. That connotation... lol.

But, my mom really enjoys watching Miyazaki movies with me. Just not anything with subtitles or too strange.

It doesn't matter to me what they think whether they love or hate that I enjoy anime. As long as I enjoy it, that's all that matters to me. I'm twenty-three years and don't have time for that.

I'm not sure how to answer here. My parents know. They don't hate it. They don't even dislike it. They just don't understand a lot about it. I hear jokes occasionally, but nothing serious. Hell, I joke about my mom's obsession with sci-fi all the time. Doesn't mean I disrespect her hobby.

It just... It is what it is.

As long as I don't subject them to it too much they support it. Really they just want me to go to grad school, start a career and provide them with a grand kid or two, as long as I do most of those I can have any nerdy hobby I want.

Pfft!

My mother gives half a crap about my shows as I do hers.

Anime is to me as Biggest Loser is to my mother...

Oh, and my Father lives in another state... so there's that.

I'd love to see my father say anything about it, and frankly I think he knows exactly my reply to it.

As for my mother, she's makes a point of supporting and showing a mild interest in her children's passions. However, in this case, she doesn't have to force herself, she does enjoy the occasional anime (whenever she can find it subbed in French) and is a major Disney fan.

If you in my house the words Parents and Respect don't belong in the same sentence. my parents don't want to hear about me watching "Cartoons" and playing with "Toys" >_> my parents are very rude if you didn't get that part

I don't think I'm an otaku. I just like watching anime, reading and writing fanfics about my favorite characters, that's pretty much it
And my mom never shames me for liking those. She sometimes watches one or two episodes of any anime I'm watching at that time and she often gets confused or pissed off at how there's much more narrations and explanations than the actual fights (i'm mostly talking about hunter x hunter here)

So yeah she never bothers me with it as long as I don't spend too much time on it that I abandon my chores and stuff.

None of my family really cares. They make jokes about it, but it's really nothing more than a little teasing.
