I just feel so weird when that happens, for some reason. I'm scared that some uguu loli fanservice scene is gonna pop up, even in the most tame shows. ._.


Exactly! It's embarrassing trying to explain why there's a half naked person on my screen, without them thinking it is hentai. Plus, if my parents saw me watching any anime, they'd ask why I'm not studying instead. xD

When I think about it, I don't want to be seen watching some shoujo.

The feeling of your man points decreasing from attempting to watch an recommended shoujo anime is bad enough. But jeez when your parents see those fantasizing scenes (you know those scenes where a chick sees this guy and sees flowers and random bubbles surrounding him with that chessy music)... Ugh.

SO in conclusion, I rather get seen watching some ecchi crap rather than being seen watching shoujo. At least they won't think I'm homosexual or anything.

Looking through my own list:
I'll type which I think I would not mind my parents seeing me watching:
ARIA series
K-ON
Toradora 1st Half
Lucky Star
Cardcaptor Sakura
FMP Fumoffu (Not 1st season)
Spirited Away(Hayao is generally family friendly)

The others have some stuff I'd rather not be seen watching
-Half naked people (Same for any TV/Film, it's freaking awkward...)
-Ultra girly (there's one on my list)

And I'd rather not be seen crying, so the utsuge->anime too.

My mum's pretty cool with anime, she even watched Blood+ and a couple of other series so mist is fine. The obvious alone time shows and perhaps some of the moeshit series I watch...yeah.

Based on what I've seen in the past:
-Yaoi/ shounen-ai
-Lolicon (was a bit uneasy with seeing Dance in the Vampire Bund and Petite Cossette whenever my family is nearby.)
-Incest anime (Koi Kaze, I'm in Love with my Younger Sister, Angel Sanctuary)
-Fan service heavy titles.

Most of the times I pause the anime I'm watching, because for some unknown reason, mostly when they try to see what I'm watching random fanservice pops out :/
And of course hentai anime. Although I rarely watch it on PC.

I actually watch anime with my parents on occasion, so, I guess nothing, really. I can't think of a series that I've watched that I wouldn't watch with anyone I know. I'm not insecure about watching anime, so it's no big deal.

I'm not even going to consider hentai since nobody who is mentally stable watches porn with their parents.

Yaoi/shounen-ai and Yuri/shoujo-ai.
These two are the most definite one.
Wouldn't want my parents to know how open my mind is already.

My dad enjoyed animated shows almost as much as I do, so I doubt he'd have had a problem with my watching anime.
I have to be a little careful around my mum though. It's not so much a matter of what I watch as it is of how much time I spend watching it. She'd freak out if she found out how much time I spend watching anime.
Specific genres I'd rather not have her know about are ecchi, shounen-ai and shoujo-ai, for obvious reasons (I don't normally watch hentai anyway, so that's not much of a problem)...

Parents are always parents. They won't approve most of the stuff their children have fun with, including anime ofc. I think they see it as a waste of time, or as something childish - not appropriate to someone growing up. Children are usually embarrassed when they dont meet those expectations which is why they don't like getting caught watching anime- playing games etc.
As i see it, it only becomes problematic when time spent on anime etc is significantly more than time spent anywhere else.
Personally i dont care if my parents see me watching anime. They actually know that i do and lecture me all the time about how i should grow up get a girl etc =) Thankfully i'm not depending on them anymore so it doesn't really matter to me. Taking into consideration their terrible taste for TV shows etc helps as well. I mean what they watch is far from decent. At best it's boring at worse it's embarrassingly stupid. By the way, on that aspect, most anime have a surprising better story, acting, directing than 90% of live action movies, TV shows etc which is the reason why i watch them after all.

Interesting topic. Right now I think my mom and aunt would let me watch anything without complaint as I'm already past the legal age for a while and they are lenient with me to start with. But I've always been a "good kid" so I've always kept the naughtier stuff behind closed doors. Well, I seriously doubt they get mad, they'd likely just say "well,you're old enough now", but it still would feel awkward to be too open about it.

Oh, the most of animes. My mom is very conservative, she think that Japanese people is too strange, and animation is for kids only.

Kiss X Sis, Golden Boy, and Mnemosyne. I would rather have them see none of the animes that I watch.

My parents almost never come in while I'm watching anime, but while I was watching Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt and Highschool of the Dead, I was prepared to shut off the computer if they were to come in.

I really have no problems with parents on that stuff, although I guess naturally, I would be a little hesitant to watch a very ecchi show around my parents.
Looking at posts on the Internet wouldn't bother me so much if people didn't also mix up he and she.

None of it, if possible. My parents can't even say "anime" correctly. I tend to pause and have extra tabs open when my parents are home. If they ever notice that whenever they're in my room I'm always in my email staring at it with no emails in my inbox, I may be in trouble.

I don't get super embarrassed if they see me watching anime, but it's a bit... eh. Was awkward one time watching Star Driver... of all times for my mom to look at the screen, she looked when Wako was almost totally naked. Jeez.

Not embarassed at all. My stepdad couldnt care less and my mom tried watching stuff with me one time (NHK and My Bride is a Mermaid) cause she had nothing better to do...she thought anime was pretty damn corny but whatever. It's not something I would hide from my parents at this point (except for maybe the ecchi stuff lol)

None, because it's just so awkward. I don't like explaining why someone's boobs are jiggling uncontrollably or why a guy just got punched into outer space by a 90 lb girl.

-Hanamaru Youchien ( I don’t want they know that I have lolicon fattish ^_^ )
-Princess+Princess ( not that I’m gay, but better they not know I watch this )

Exactly my thoughts. My parents would be kinda creeped out, I think.

I showed my parents Deathnote. They thought it was pretty good and they pretty much know of the animes I watch (mainly action ones) Bleach, Naruto, Code Geass. But I'll be dead before they see me watching High School of the Dead. Matrix Boobs Anyone?

The question is, why would I want my parents to see me watching any anime?

I didn't have a relationship with my parents... the people who raised me (my grandparents) were fine with me watching whatever as long as it wasn't like porn or something, which I hate anyway.

I live with my husband now though.

Hentai or Ecchi anime's. I don't think my parents would mind me watching gory animes.
But still, I need to be more careful when I watch anime in general. I remember that time when I was re-watching Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion. My mom just happened to walk in during this scene where Rei was "on top" of Shinji. I was all like "its not what it looks like!!" -.-'

another reason why i wouldnt want my parents to see me watching any anime at all, is because with my luck they would walk in on the worst part of the episode, whether it be the only hardcore ecchi scene in the episode even if the series wasnt technically in the ecchi genre, or as luck would have it, my dad(worst case scenario) would walk in on an extreme shoujo scene.

and is it just me or did this happen to anyone else.. when your watching a movie and your parents walk in on the ONLY sex scene/scene with nudity in the whole movie. and this seemed to happen way too often to the point where i literally thought i was under the curse of awkwardness. so after i went through my entire childhood of this awkwardness im not taking any chances. because your parents walking in during a sex scene/nude scene/fanservice scene, or whatever is awkward enough, so if your parents walk in during an animated scene like that would be on another level of awkwardness.
