What are their thoughts/have they spoken to you about it?
I know when I watch it, my mom and dad check up on me cause they think I'm up to 'naughty things' and the fact that I'm an Otaku doesn't make it any better xD

What's some of the things your family (or even friends) say? I'm a bit curious ^u^

They really don't care. And I don't care what they think as long as they don't try to stop me from watching it.

My mom is okay with it. She lived in Japan for 2 years. She likes all the culture I'm taking in. But if if I've taken a liking to anime that is kinda inappropriate, I would have to watch it in secret. Like Trinity Seven.

My sisters watch it too, sometimes my parents. So, all in all, I would say they are rather permissible.

My parents don't like me watching it. My mom calls it "trash" and doesn't understand why I enjoy watching "garbage" yet my dad isn't that harsh when he sees it on the tv. He'll question why it's on, but he won't tell me to turn the tv off or anything like that.

The most I have heard was my mom stating that I am watching one with the inflection of a question as if it were unexpected. I simply replied "problem?" and was responded to with "no." That was the end of that.

My dad on the other hand is an ass but he doesn't know so it doesn't really matter. If he did I'm sure he would find some way to annoy me about it.

I probably should't waste my time replying to this but, you need to back off. I love my parents even though I don't agree with their decision on me watching anime but I don't think it's right for anyone to "hate" my parents or say something disgusting like that for me saying that they don't like me watching it. The person wanted to know what our family/friends think about us watching anime and I said what my parents think. So, YOU can go suck a fat one.

Being 48 years old means I don't have the 'protective parent' issues that many of you seem to be dealing with, but I'm sure you can imagine what I DO get:- 'You're too old to be watching cartoons' etc, etc. from family, friends, colleagues, and anyone else who tries to get in their 10cents worth! I've given up trying to enlighten them on the merits of anime, and they have (almost) given up the hassles but it still annoys me sometimes, especially since I haven't got anyone else around who shares my enthusiasm. BUT it doesn't dampen mine, I'll be partaking 'til I'm blind, deaf and/or senile! (which, now that I think about it, may not be far off!)
