As a kid, Mom just saw it as something I liked it. To her, it was like liking TMNT or Power Rangers and not anything different. She even took me to mini-cons a comic book store would have and actually spend large amounts of money on anime merch for me, haha.
As I got older, she still was accepting of it and has never once said that I should let it go. She's seen some of figures I've bought and some are a little ecchi and she still doesn't care. The ecchi things to her is like the 'normal' pinning swim suit models on the walls. It's just what guys do in her eyes. I think to her, it was an okay hobby to have since it wasn't harmful in any way. Now that I think about it, I actually have quite a few stories of her being so accepting, that it would probably surprise other parents, or just people in general. lol

As for my Dad? Dad knows I like it, but I'm not sure how he feels about it. If he has an opinion, he keeps quiet about it.

So, uh. Bottom line of what they think? "Whatevs"

My Mom doesn't like anime/manga at all, she made me throw away my Pokemon cards collection because she thinks they are satanic, same thing with anime, she catch me watching DBZ, Ranma 1/2 etc I was grounded, hell I couldn't even watch SpongeBob with her around .
My Dad on the other hand watches anime, reads manga, buys figures and posters once in a while, and if you wonder, yes they are divorced.

My dad likes the idea that I'm into anime…he once said "I'm glad you like anime and cartoons, you still seem so child like and I love that"…
Hmmmm I don't mind being told that I still seem like a kid but at the same time I'm 25…sooooo...
On the other hand my dad bought me anime for christmas so I can't complain!!

My parentals dont care, even though I tend to hate it when they mispronounce "manga and anime"

My dad was the one who got me obsessed with anime and manga when he rented heaps of movies and shows for me to watch when I was growing up. He was also the one who helped me with my cosplay and buys me manga and anime. He's even letting me go to an anime and manga convention which isn't in the city I live in. Sometimes we watch anime together.

My mum doesn't care, she knows I watch anime but she doesn't really like to watch it herself.

All of my sisters watch anime too so it's normal in my family (though I'm the only one into Japanese music).

My mom doesn't know too much about anime, but when I showed her a few episodes of "Eureka Seven", she really enjoyed it--especially the kids!

My parents don't really know that I watch anime because they never ask, but they're generally OK with me watching TV as a whole.

Mom - "Are those the special ones you like to watch?"

Dad - "I've got to watch more of these."

Seems scary. At least your dad isn't as strict!
