I'm just wondering how your parents react/think of you being interested in anime or other fandoms? I'm asking this cause I just started to kinda get into anime last year and i'm 16. My told my mom I was interested in it when my best friend and I wanted to start going to conventions. The thing is, she isn't too knowledgeable about the subject and I'm kinda sorta am and I'm been wanting to get stuff like posters, pillows, and other things for my favorite shows. I don't exactly know or want to know how my mom would react or think of me having a liking to where you want to buy merch and hang things up in my room and all of the sorts.

I try to have my mom know all my interests and i remind her as much as possible, but sadly she really doesn't care . And yet she always asks why I'm so distant from her at times.

My mum doesn't care. But when holidays come about or birthdays, she always asks me if I want manga or something as a present. And when I was younger, we used to watch Studio Ghibli movies together. She still likes them.

My mom thinks it's a waste of time. I'm still going to watch it despite what she says though. My dad on the other hand doesn't care since we used to watch Dragon Ball Z together when I was a kid.

My mother helps me sew my cosplays, sometimes pops by the conventions to see all the cosplayers, and she sometimes sits down with me while I watch anime. She doesn't actively watch it but she thinks Ore no Imouto is funny and that Attack on Titan is creepy. My mom just wants me to be happy and doesn't care what I'm interested in so long as it's not dangerous or something.

My parents dont really mind my love for all things anime. I cosplay and I show my parents my costumes. If I get overly emotional I go to my mom and rant about the show and tell her what its about. She doesnt mind, she listens and laughs at me. :)
I have very understanding parents, which is good.
Everyone religiously plays RPG's in my house , so that may be why.

My mum is convinced all anime is hentai.

if my mother knew i'm pretty sure she wouldn't approve, because in high school she never approved of me watching Spongebob Squarepants

I think she knows I'm into that. But she thinks that anime is just "violent kids' shows". I never tell her about my hobbies and she leaves me alone w/ them, and I prefer it that way.

They never quite minded my interest in anime, or any of he other things I'm into. If anything, my parents are willing to try out some of the stuff I'm interested in.
