My parents are perfectly fine with me watching anime. In fact, I used to watch Monster with Mom and Yu Yu Hakusho and Samurai Champloo with Dad. I also seen a few anime movies with them.

My parents thought it would just be a "phase." I have been a fan since 1995. I've been buying Anime since 2001. Still here. My Mom can't understand how I can be entertained by "those Japanese cartoons" and my Dad thinks all Anime is Sailor Moon. They also can't understand why I insist on watching the original language. (They think subtitles are "annoying.") If they knew how much I've spent on Anime and merchandise--I'd be a dead lady. So, basically my parents think I'm weird. Well, I think my Dad's weird for listening to music from the 1920's and I don't understand why my Mom likes doing yard work, so I call it even.

My parents in a way support me and my hobbies. My dad use to watch anime movies and some shows with me, and we drew pictures and my mom like the fact that I am passionate about what I love and helps me out when making my cosplay outfits. They never put me down or whatever about anime, or any of my hobbies, they think it's pretty cool.

They don't really care too much lol. In fact, they think everything I watch is DBZ or Naruto. But they've only seen me watching shounen. I'm just glad they haven't seen me watch Anohana, Clannad or other emotional anime. If they walked in on me tearing up, it'd be pretty awkward lol.

my parents were a bit iffy about it when I started watching it in middle school with my childhood friends...tried to get me into girly crap and sports...then they left me alone when I joined the military.

now that I've been living back home...they don't care. I buy my own stuff when I have the money after paying my bills, so their pretty chill about it.

although...they tagged along with me and a friend to PMX one year...and they liked it O.O

my parents are accepting of me being gay and wearing make up.


so that pretty much says it all what their reaction to my hobbies are; they don't care that I watch anime or collect manga/anime.


the only thing that would shock them is if I do drugs or smoke or become an alcoholic, I don't do any of those things, not because I'm a health freak, but because they taste disgusting, I don't like bitter stuff. I've never felt the pressure to smoke or do drug.

Never brought it up since it's never a topic, but mom would likely not understand and be indifferent, and dad would use it for an endless amount of jokes. He's that kind of person.

They'll end up finding out next summer though, if not sooner. They come to visit me for my mother's birthday and they'll undoubtedly see the otaku corner, full of figures and anime.

At that point I figure mom will think it's nice that I have a hobby, and dad will label me as someone who plays with dolls, maybe make jokes hinting at me being gay, that sort of thing.

They don't really care. My dad will occasionally poke fun at me for watching cartoons, but it's lighthearted. My mom also likes some anime, but she just watches what's on TV.

My mom introduced anime to me when I was 5 by watching her favorite show; the original Gundam. When I was 7, my stepdad, mom, and I all watched Princess Mononoke and I was hooked to anime then. My stepdad was kinda on the fence with it for awhile but when I got older, I introduced him to Deathnote and he enjoys anime now as well. My dad on the other hand is a sports nut so I've tried to introduce him to sports related anime haha

My mum ridicules me saying I'm too old for "cartoons" and general geekery but I think she's secretly pleased it's just geek stuff and not drugs or sex that I'm addicted to lol.
