I've never been able to get my mother into it (and I've been watching anime since DBZ was on Toonami in the late 90s/early 2000s, so I've had YEARS to try). My dad likes Spirited Away though.

My mum actually buys me manga sometimes (: She also sat down and watched Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokemon with me when I was little, so I guess she's pretty cool with it. She even asked me about Howl's Moving Castle and said she really wanted to watch it!

My mom actually introduced me to Anime when I was little (Cardcaptor Sakura, Star Blazers, Ghost in the Shell, Fruits Basket, etc.) So she's really into it as well. And I don't think my Dad really gets it, but he gets the whole super fandom thing (I'm a huge anime nerd, he's a huge baseball nerd).

I dont tell people I like anime in real life lol. Nobody in real life knows that I even watch anime, I wont even tell any of my friends lol. Even if I hear someone talking about anime I wont show that I know what they are talking about lol.


Its my secret enjoyment, and I wont buy anything that shows that i watch anime. No DVD'd, figures, posters for me, I just like anime as an entertainment medium, and I am the only person that needs to know that .

My step mom doesn't mind. Oh, but my dad? He literally smashed my computer to pieces as soon as he saw me playing H-games or reading my manga. I'm still scared to tell him how much anime means to me.


He seriously did that? If anyone ever smashed my computer, or any of my figures for that matter, i seriously don't know what I'd do to them.

Why do you have to tell them you like anime? It's like asking them what are you hiding in the dresser over in that shady corner? Everyone deserves their own interests.

I try to avoid showing them my animes. I really don't watch anything inappropriate. My fav animes are Bleach, Naruto, and Free! (I'm a girl by the way. Whenever I mention the first two being my favs, people always assume I'm a boy ugh). What I think they wouldn't approve of is the bad language. I honestly don't know why. They don't cuss a lot, and when they do it isn't really bad. That's basically the only thing holding me from showing them. Other than that I think they'd be cool? I mean there are some innuendoes, but they are very subtle and rare. I'm not 6 anymore. I don't copy everything I see on tv.

My mom and dad played all of Miyazaki's films for me when I was a kid (circa 1990).

So I guess you could say they were the ones who started it.

My parents first questioned why I was watching things in a different language when I switched to sub in like 7th grade, but now they don't really care. They'll stare at the screen for a while, ask questions or just walk away. When I got my dad to buy me manga, he asked if it was fun and I just kind of stared at him. Duh, I wouldn't be reading it if it wasn't enjoyable.

My parents didn't notice when I started to watch it regularly. Mother's a workaholic and step-father stayed in the Caribbean. I'm grown and left home for quite some time now. I doubt my mother cares.

My mom doesn't mind, she's gotten me manga as Christmas presents. My dad, on the other hand, is a Southern Baptist. That's why I only watch anime on my phone.
