My parents were skeptical until one day the power went out and I had still had charge on my laptops. My Mom ended up enjoying "Ah! My Goddess" and my dad became a "Rurouni Kenshin" Fan

My parents aren't terribly concerned, they know that I love anime and manga and were in complete support of me going to conventions

Although they don't disagree with my hobbies involving anime an manga I hesitate to let them know what specific series I'm into because back when I first got interested they seemed to think that all of it was hentai (like some people have said their parents thought)

In the end I think my parents only concern is that I'll spend too much time effort and money on my hobbies and not get much out of it in return

my mom is a little apprehensive but she doesn't mind it most times. I think she's more concerned about the weapons I bring back from dealers at cons haha.

I've gotten my dad into anime fairly recently - he's watched nearly my entire DVD collection at this point, though I haven't gotten him started on CR or Hulu streams because of his limited monthly bandwidth. May have to start having him come over to watch stuff at my place.

My mom doesn't care for most of it, but does find some hilarious - like The Devil is a Part Timer. And she's interested enough to hear about it because I'm so into it.

They never minded me being interested in it, though. Even bought me a few DVDs when I was younger.. I had to convince them to stop that because they didn't know what they were shopping for, but hey, they tried

They are fine with it. My dad likes anime. He got me into it, starting with Naruto. He used to watch Speed Racer as a kid and made us get a couple of the dvd sets.

They don't really care and aren't interested in it, though I'm not sure if my dad even knows I watch it. Though I do feel awkward having it on the screen. There's so much ecchi stuff that it's hard for them to NOT walk in at an awkward moment, so I treat it like everyone else treats porn and minimise it. They're pretty much indifferent; to my mum they're Japanese cartoons where the characters have big eyes.

My mother doesn't care. To her, it's just a more mature version of American cartoons, which she is indifferent to. My stepdad prefers American cartoons, but he doesn't particularly dislike anime. He likes the oldies, such as Felix the Cat and Popeye the Sailor Man.

My mom hates the fact that I watch anime. she thinks that thier just weird japanese cartoons. But, I am starting to understand where she is coming from about anime being a waste of time and all.

My mom knows that I am into anime and manga. I think she thinks that it is another hobby that I have, The one thing I do know is that she thinks that I spend too much time watching anime.
I want to get her to watch a few shows, like Clannad, Angel Beats, and Lucky Star to understand what anime is like. If she is willing, I might show her Madoka Magica or Black Rock Shooter, but those may be too dark...
I am wanting to get a few Gundam models, and I do not think she would have a problem with that, but I have no idea what her reaction would be to me getting a body pillow or some risque figures.

They hate the fact that I waste my money on stuff and that I recently started to cosplay/attend conventions - they especially have a problem with the cosplay haha. But they don't try and stop me or anything.

I keep trying to get them to watch stuff I think they'd enjoy, but had no luck getting them to sit down for it yet =(

ahaha they don't really know that I watch anime.... -_-
(except maybe stuff like pokemon when I was young)
but seriously, my mom doesn't bother me at all when I'm in my room AND doesn't check my laptop

If she did know, she would probably yell at me for wasting my time when I'm supposed to study
