My mom thinks its cool. She likes to see my drawings and stuff and my room is full of wallscrolls. She loves it when I cosplay for conventions and takes pictures and stuff. I don't really know what she thinks/knows about anime besides that they're Japanese shows. She buys me a lot of Japanese stuff.

My parents have been more or less accepting of all of my hobbies and interests, even if they don't really understand it. My dad was an avid movie watcher before he passed so he loved it when I got a Netflix account, and since I'd signed up for 2 DVDs at a time we'd usually both get something we were interested in. For the most part, I only rented anime series and movies and watched some of what he chose, and even though he didn't really care for anime, he'd always ask me what I thought of whatever movie I had at the time and gave it a try. He never made it through a single one without falling asleep though lol.

Mom on the other hand has watched and to some extent enjoyed a few series, Cowboy Bebop being one of them, but I can't get her to watch anything subbed so it's harder to find newer shows she might like, especially since most of what's on Hulu and Crunchy is only available subbed. That being said, I doubt she'd choose to watch any anime on her own.

My mom doesn't care if I watch and buy anime as long as I have a hobby I enjoy. My father on the other hand doesn't like the fact the I waste about half of my paycheck on anime (blu-ray set, figures, manga, etc), although he doesn't care what I watch since he watches DBZ every weekends. We bought him the entire series since his a huge DBZ fan and to keep him entertained.

My parents really don't care. I suspect they have kind of a idea what anime is (they know what manga art style is) but they don't mind. I watch anime in my own room and buy anime merch (dakimakura, figures) with my own money. I've always had the luxury that my parents are 100% tolerance; if something makes me happy and is not hurting someone else, they support my choice.

Mines are slowly getting into em apparently. Like I showed my parents, Attack on Titan, Madoka Magica, and Patema Inverted. They actually like those animes. (And anime movie).

My parents still have a hard time accepting that I enjoy anime. It's gotten better after switching to collecting production artwork and anime staff sketches, but I get rather annoyed whenever my mom asks me when I'm going to sell something. I bought the cel or sketch because I enjoy that scene or enjoy that particular work. I have never bought anything with the intention of selling it for much more than what I paid for it.

My parents don't seem to mind all that much, they don't know much about anime.

They never really cared but they always thought I was watching cartoons, it would then follow with nagging about how I'm too old for cartoons hahaha.

My mother will tease me, and sometimes complains about anime because she doesn't see it as an "intelligent" form of media. But otherwise she lets me do whatever I want with it without getting too overbearing and doesn't bring it up all that often. I'm an adult, so these days she can't do much other than complain, hahaha.

My parents think I am into creepy stuff, which is partially true. My sisters and I have somewhat similar tastes in anime, but not similar enough.

My Dad reads hella comic books and we use to watch Bebop and DBZ together, so he's cool. My mother doesn't care much, but if she ever did complain, I'll let her know I know what's in her billions of "romance" novels shudder...

Although there's a reason I watch things like High school DxD at 2 am...
