My mum and dad are very skeptical as they accept that I like it but that's as far as it goes for me. However my granddad is a really big anime fan and watches about as much as me lol

I'm an adult so they don't really care. I did not start watching anime seriously until I was older and had more money and internet access. I did used to watch DBZ with my brother on the living room TV, and they just ignored it or teased us. They called Goku Go-poo.

My mom is not interested in it actually. She does support me since I draw anime stuffs and earn money from there, but other than that she couldn't care less lol u__u but the bad thing is that she's still against me hanging posters on my room. well yeah i sort of understand why. but she does let me buy posters or things only if i pay by myself

Basically the same as others my Mum couldn't really care less, I get good grades in school/college so there's not really a prob unless I'm doing badly because I'm watching anime.

My dad grew up in Japan, but never really saw the appeal of manga and anime, and he still doesn't care for it, especially kid's shows like Pokémon and Digimon (both of which my little sister is quite obsessed with). He does, however, love Hayao Miyazaki's movies.
My mom has nothing against her children watching anime, but she doesn't have any interest in it herself.

Depends how old you were, you could share a story with us when you were younger with your parents.

when I was your age I had been out of the house for 8 years and honestly there wasn't a lot of anime in the west at the time so it was even more fringed then it is now I knew maybe 3 other people into it so they most likely viewed as a odd hobby

My parents don't care but since I am only living with my mom she especially doesn't care.

My mum doesn't really care what I get that's to do with anime (probably because I grew up watching Pokemon and YU-GI-OH, and she's considerate), my brothers on the other hand, are assholes when I watch anime or get stuff to do with anime

My dad thinks its weird, he's told me "If you end up bringing home some Japanese boy, I'm gonna tell him "She thinks you're a cartoon." " So he's supportive. I'm afraid to ask him if I can go to conventions because he thinks they're full of weirdos. What he doesn't seem to get is that I am one of those weirdos.
My mum's more understanding, if I want to get a figure or poster or something, I tell her and keep it a secret from my dad. I recently even got her into Hunter x Hunter, which may actually be my life's greatest achievement.

As a father who loves anime, when my son started watching, it was just another thing we had in common.
