She even pays for my CR subscription


You are lucky!

I have to pay it myself! :i



Same here had to get a job to pay for my addiction to anime and manga.which coincidentally did not leave me much time to feed my addiction!

My mom teases me sometimes about how all the anime I watch is Hentai and such. But she actually is cool with it (She also seems to be into Ghost In the Shell, Akira, and Space Battleship Yamaoto).

My dad is a workaholic so he doesn't notice. On the other hand my mom would glance at my screen and say what a cute cartoon. So they don't really care.

I found my parents don't care as long as I get home work and chores done. However, they never want to watch anime with me, saying it's just "cartoons". That's really my only chance to watch that kind of stuff, so I'm somewhat being suppressed from the anime world, thank goodness to Crunchyroll!

One time I brought up me reading manga in school to my dad, and he said that he didn't like their humor. So I haven't brought it up since.

I showed my mom a clip of Attack on Titan and she said, "What is this? Pokemon?"
I haven't even watched Pokemon since 2005...

I've Only watched anime for about a year and a half, started off with "FLCL" and moved on to other stuff, recently I've been watching stuff like "Diamond no Ace" "Shingeki no Kyojin" and " Tokyo Ravens"

I let it slip that I watched anime a few times, but my parents just shook it off. my dad seems to have no idea that I watch anime and my mom doesn't seem to care too much. I'm trying to get them into the anime world by starting off with Ghibli movies and then.... idk stuff.

I see a very prominent "my mom doesn't care" theme.
My parents don't care what my interests are as long as it doesn't effect my life outside of my private time (school, relationships, work)
If you aren't slipping in those sorts of things than it just a hobby that she'd probably support.

My parents know I am into anime and they make fun of it in a good way. Know what I mean? and I am totally OK with it cause they have a positive attitude about it.

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.


Just buy a few and see how she reacts. If anything, she will keep bugging you about being 16 and still watching "cartoons". Shouldn't be a problem, parents don't don't understand their kids half the time.

I find anime that I know my mother would appreciate and I introduce her to them...after I did that she acknowledged that I wasn't wasting time watching cartoons...it was a win in my book.

Well, my dad came in my room when I was watching anime once, and he was like "WHAT are you watching?!?!" hahaha
The unrealistically high pitched girl voices and relatively feminine closing song probably didn't make it seem to normal.
I was just like "It's anime. I've kinda turned into a nerd. Everything else I used to watch is just boring now, so I watch this." I just got into anime for real like a couple months ago btw

My parents don't really mind, they even ask me questions about the anime I watch. My brother started watching anime way before I did so I think he took the blunt of our parent's concern.
