My mom doesn't mind that I am watching anime, but she can be suspicious when it comes to fan service, ecchi, and other stuff that is "too sexual" for me. She realized that I wanted to travel to Japan, and she said, "I have to get used to that." My sister, however, always said that "Is anime in China or Japan?" Also, she said that it's for people without any lives. Man, I love my sister, but she's have to stop being so heartless.

My mom and one of my aunts like Tenchi Universe. *shrug*. Heck, I even got my mother to go to Otakon with me and watch Otaku no Video! Most of my cousins and their kids are into anime and I'm the go-to girl for locating cool anime swag.

Not so strangely, it's mostly the more xenophobic, ultra religious family members that don't really get our love for anime.

My mom actually watches it with me fairly regularly. I have no friends who watch a ton of anime, and one day I showed her the first episode of Fullmetal Alchemist and she fell in love with the series. Soon, she started looking into other series and wanting to watch more, so yeah.

My dad on the other hand...He's a bit prejudice towards everybody except himself and family. Since anime is from Japan, he wouldn't watch it himself, and he's probably not crazy on the idea I watch it, but he respects my interests.

I don't know that they care very much, though they definitely have no clue what it is and may even find it weird. At most a couple of my cousins were somewhat into Naruto.

My mom did get pretty into Hell Girl when she caught me watching it.

My mom and sister have watched a little bit of anime. But my other family members seem to disapprove.

Games/Movies/Music, everything is sexualized these days, it's not something that is specific to anime. I've seen plenty of movies with unnecessary nudity and random sex scenes. That being said... there are plenty of games/movies/music that do not do this or only to a minor degree... depends on the title/category/etc... just like anime.

Dad hates it
Mother don't care
Wife kind of okay with it sometimes, other times just puts up with it
In-laws pretend they don't notice

Edit: One of my wife's aunts overseas is a huge Miyazaki fan, and that was why my wife agreed to go with me to see The Wind Rises ("Well if she liked it so much then it's probably not bad" kindava thing)

Well my dad doesn't care when I'm fangirling about any series I'm watching he ignores me -__- and with my mom is different she listens but barely watches anime I believe she use to love Candy Candy back when she was younger so it's kinda easier to fangirl about a show or my Seiya to her ...Besides she finds Anime Guys Hottt c: Yay Mom !!

They don't really care one way or another, as long as I still do what I need to do.

My parents really don't understand it, and my mom specifically HATES the anime wall scrolls that I have hanging up all over the place. Too bad for her though because I'm not taking them down.
