They weren't that surprised since so many family members of mine like anime, manga, etc. They came to think of it now as a heredity interest.

My father used to make fun of me back when I was a teenager and was into Sailormoon. Like he was predicting I'd grow up to be a bum because i'm so childish and whatnot. Now that I'm older, have my own job that pays more than his [ha!] I don't hear him babbling so much anymore.

It also amuses me that one of the managers in the office I work with is into DragonBall. We're talking about a fully adolescent, bald black guy, the kind you see playing in NBA or so.

You wont believe this! Yesterday I was going to go to the library to get some manga, and I asked my mom if she wanted to come with. She knows that I hate the library and wanted to know why I wanted to go all of a sudden. So she asked my brother.

We stopped at a second hand store first. And I was looking at the VHS tapes when my mom throws a book at me. >_< It was a manga. Infact I came home that day with 17 mangas.

My mom then later that day talked to my dad about it. And I guess now they are cool with it as long as I do my homework :D

When I buy manga books my mom asks me why I have to read so much. She thinks I'm reading normal novels. :o

They weren't surprised.

My mom thinks I buy too much anime/manga related stuff, but she really likes my Haruhi Suzumiya shirt and thinks fanservice is cute.

My dad collects stuff on pulp fiction and old radio and TV shows, so he understands my geekiness.

Well... My mom found out b/c she's walked in on me various times... and it's kind of hard to say I'm simply taking time to watch cartoons... that have to be subititled... on my computer. She she knows, but she doesn't really care... She just doesn't like the fact that I spend so much time in my room watching them... I've never talked to my dad about it so he shouldn't know, but I think my mom has talked to him about it... but he never says anything, he just gives me weird looks when he comes to my room && I'm in a sleeping position at my computer desk... lol
I've actually gotten my 9 yr old brother to watch Naruto, Cowboy Bebop, One Piece, and Bleach... but it's hard to keep him hoooked, b/c he is only 9...

Pretty much this. :/

Sometimes they don't mind it though.

Would depend on their mood.
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.~

My aunt is aways calling me weird and teasing me about it, it makes me want to take my Higurashi volumes and shove them in her face. My moms like "When will you start growing up and watching regular T.V." but semi-supports it now, they don't understand what I see in it, so they don't understand about half of my life.

Nope, my parents don't make fun of my anime. :3 Infact, they've watched some with the whole family (me, older bro&sis +them).

They do ask sometimes what I'm watching, but they're curious, which doesn't bother me. =)

But my mother always makes fun of it -.-' And she says that I'm going to marry a japanese boy, and she never knows that this is called anime so she just says "that stuff in a strang languange that little children watch" T.T



My mom says the same thing. My dad thinks Naruto is racist becuase there are no Black people. There is Kidomaru and thats it. My brother thinks I'm stupid from watching boy animes

If they have ever found out, they didn't mention it to me. But it would be really hard to miss. They pretty sure know and don't care. Plus I guess I'm to old to be criticized by them for my hobbies.

My mom doesn't really care. I don't know and don't care what my father thinks -_- One of my friends calls me a nerd, but when he does that, I just shoot back at him about how he spends hours online making new mods for games. Don't you just love ammunition :)

My parents are fine with it, my dad just likes to imitate some of the characters voices every now and again, usually when an evil character laughs. :P

My grandma said I should stop watching it because it's a waste of time and mind, and it will get me mixed up in school.

My mom thought it was cool, now she watches anime but not much.

Welll...I blame my mom for all my jap obsessions. (sister included)

She bought Totoro for us as kids, and took us to china town a lot (which makes sense, we're asian). Anyway, now that my sister and I are hooked on both manga and anime, and japanese/korean music...my mom hates it.

Sometimes she walks past my room and says "Why can't you ever listen to anything in english."

Although, she likes when I draw...and I draw manga style characters. That side of her I don't understand.
Oh sheesh ya'll

If I'm watching an anime movie with both my parents, they'll end up liking it and say how good it was. Whereas, if I'm caught watching an anime series they'll think that it's childish and should watch something more my age. See the picture... o.o

My dad has had the same reaction since I was watching dragonball z and gundam back in high school "Why are you watching those little cartoons so much".He thinks i'm weird, my mom on the other hand is weirdly impressed when I show her my MAL.net list of over 600 watched .I always hated when people call them cartoons, but now i hardly care.

I'm sure if I asked my stepfather he would tell me that anime is childish, and I know my mother doesn't care. Neither of them seem to have an opinion about me watching it though.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.

That's how my parents feel. Soemtimes I think they want to try it but they think it would be too akward or something along those lines.

Same here. My mom has taken an interest in a few titles, but she never really seems like she actually wants to watch them. I think it's because it's Japanese, and she thinks it would be too confusing.

Pops knows I seen him watching Cartoon Network stuff all the time, so we share the same feeling when it comes to a boring day of sitting on the couch like a potato and doing nothing.(in my case anime xD ) Mom is annoying all the time,when I explained the difference between regular cartoons and anime she kept bugging me why I won't do my homework lol >_>

The problem now is that I have a girlfriend. I have no Idea how she will react. I hope she doesn't hate me. But the cool thing would be if she watched/watches it too. I will let you know when I find out ;)

Basically "Ok"

but now I'm moved out so I can careless what they think.
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't laugh or cry..... All it does from dusk till dawn is make the soldiers die.

Mine don't mind so much, although my mum says I should read books with more words in cos they're quite expensive and I read them in about 45 minutes.
I don't watch much anime but they don't mind that either, as long as I do my work as well ^ ^
