Believe me, with the stuff my siblings have gotten up to, my parents are just thankful I'm not doing meth.

Sort of. They don't like my hobby but they do get me some stuff if it's my birthday or something.

as long as I'm not hurting myself my parents don't really care. my dad has watched the stuff with me in the past and my mom doesn't find interest

but keep in mind otaku doesn't mean Japanimation, otaku means fan of, so I'm a fan of a lot of things such as horror, etc. but mostly Japan related material, but not limited to.

I wouldn't say I'm an otaku but my parents noticed I watched anime growing up. My mom never really cared. My dad thought it was kinda weird but he didn't really say much either. I got my sister into it and she loves it now even more than I do.

Otaku Vs. Hikamori

Otaku = anime/japenese nerd

Hik = A depressed Anime/jap nerd

I'd say I'm a Hik, & my parents know I like japanese but think my depression is just sadness, usually I hide how I feel otherwise I would get really sick & have to hear "what I have to do" constantly

My parents have no problem with it, they're the ones who pay for my premium membership. Although neither of my parents currently watch anime, I know my mum used to be a fan of Sailor Moon before I was born.

My mom and step dad accept my love for anime. They even bought me a Crunchyroll premium for me! My dad took some time to accept the fact that I watch "cartoons." When I was 13, my dad banned me from watching cartoons on TV when I visit him. But for some reason he accept the fact that I watch anime??? I don't know why he change his mind.

Yeah. I wouldn't really say I'm an otaku though. They respect that I watch it though.

I am not an otaku as a child but my siblings is. My father allow my siblings to become an otaku but my mother oppose it. As a child, my mother mostly allow me to enjoy Japanese entertainment without monitoring me because I am disciplined and provide priority of study over entertainment.
