Mine like the more action oriented series. Interpret that how you will.

I almost see more backlash from my friends. Not that they dislike it, but more that they don't like to read subtitles because they can't multitask with gaming at the same time or they might miss an important plot point.

Some of my buddies refuse to watch it because it's "not cool", despite the shows that they watch on network and cable television have several anime qualities despite not being animated, to me (i.e. Dexter). It also makes me laugh when they whine about not having anything to watch. I always am willing and able to throw out suggestions when they say that, to which they just snark. It makes me laugh.

My obsession with moe anime confuses my mom because she doesn't know what the point of watching them is. I actually had a hard time answering that, and just ended up telling her that I find them relaxing. That's true, but I think there's probably more to my motivations than that.

My dad doesn't like subs and sort of mocks what I'm watching if he's in the room. He has liked dubbed anime in the past though (he watched Pokemon and DBZ back in the day) so meh, dunno about that one.

My older brother doesn't watch anime and lives out of state, but he watched Attack on Titan last time he was over and liked it- has no issues with subs. Last time I saw him he told me he was a Brony though, so getting into anime would probably be an improvement for him

I watch anime weekly with my brother and his wife and we always start off with Tonari no Seki-kun. My dad will usually stick around and watch that one with us before he heads to a different room. He had tried to stick around and watch some of the others before, but i think the scene near the end of Campione! scared him off.... i dont think he was expecting that.

My parents (of whom my mother is the only survivor, but I still refer to them as "them") have long since taken my tastes, hobbies, etc, in stride. They may not accept everything, but they don't question or challenge me. My mother is outdated, she still thinks Sponge Bob is relevant, so it's easy to just brush her off by saying "television show", and she's never asked to watch them. Not that I would be embarrassed. When I buy figures (typically nendos) she'll just comment "how adorable". Altho I wonder what she'll say when she sees the 1/8 Holo or the 1/7 Chaikra that I've got on pre-order... not that those are anything to be ashamed of, but I don't think she's seen any of my other 1/8 figures; they're pretty intricate.

My sister (my only sibling) just comments "that's my brother for you".

Basically it's not a hobby that I can share with my family, altho they're pretty oblivious anyways. Same as with my other hobbies (e.g., retro computing; "why would you spend $200 on a 30 year old computer?").

My family

Dad: Doesn't poke into other people's business so it's fine
Mom: Kind of thinks it's a phase that I'll eventually grow out of
Brother: Watches it with me so...
Sister: Too young to care

My parents could care less. They have their weird likes and hobbies, I have mine. I am far past the point of being influenced by them, and they know full well that is the case. My mom has made jokes about specifically the girls she has seen on my posters or wallpapers on my phone and computer. My dad I think was confused at first when I got into it, but he just shrugged his shoulders and didn't care after that, it's no skin off his back after all.

They would probably care more if I was younger and still using them for money.

Hmm always wanted to ask something, so the figures are just kept and collected? Although I could say this to any collection item, I have always wonder where collection feeling comes from. Or is it to somewhat play with it? although no so much in the imaginative form back as a kid...is that one of the aspects?

It's kinda their fault I love anime/mange as much I do. They used to buy me and my brother manga when we were younger and we always fought who get's to read it 1st and if you were ruining the book and tease each other with spoilers and stuff like that. These included lots of the "mainstream" stuff like Dragonball ofc, Naruto, Inuyasha, Hellsing, Death Note and plenty of stuff like that. They probably even haven't the slightest clue what they were buying. (like that necrophilia/rape scene at the beginning of Hellsing lol)

Oh those, were the days, Don't have nearly as much money to spend on manga anymore, sadly...

I've always collected different things and figures is just something I've taken a liking to the past few years. They look great displayed and have such good detail in them.
