I do! At first we watched only hentai like Oppai Gakuen Marching Band-bu! and Boy Meets Harem The Animation. But I realized how much good anime they'd been missing out so I gradually introduced them to the lesser genres like ecchi, drama and thriller, with ecchi being the one second to hentai in ranking.

Since I'm still rather young, my parents are really strict about what I watch with them, and if it's not PG they have to approve of it. However, I went to watch My Neighbor Totoro when it was showing in my local Cinemark with my mom, my siblings, and my friends and my mom seemed to like it a lot. However, before that, I watched Mononoke Hime with them, and they weren't huge fans. My parents let me buy Toradora! on the family room TV a few weeks back. My dad didn't really like it (probably because "the eyes were too big") and my mom didn't really pay attention. If you are at the age where your parents don't really care what you watch, here are a few things you can watch:

Fullmetal Alchemist
Cowboy Bebop
Any Ghibli Film
Something mainstream (except Fairy Tail)
Death Note (if your parents don't mind the whole anti hero concept)
Code Geass

Just nothing with ecchi scenes, k? <3

I'm always in the living room watching anime and sometime they would be there with me. They're constantly complaining that I need to grow up and stop watching cartoons. Or that I should "at least put a show in Mandarin on" for them.

My dad wouldn't watch death note with me, but when he saw the live action trailor, he said he would watch that when it comes out. Just because it's animated he thinks it's a cartoon. :0

My mum will occasionally watch an anime movie with me. I tried getting her to watch steins;gate once, i told her about it while i was rewatching it. then she came over to check it out. And she managed to look at the one scene where Kurisu and Mayuri are having a bath. One 5 second clip out of 24 episodes. Now she refuses to watch it because she thinks its about anime girls doing sexy things :|

I can watch Anime in my room but I prefer watching it on the big TV in my house's living room. Mom sometimes tries to sit down and watch with me too, I don't mind anyway :D. Somehow, the "Anime time" gives us a quite relaxing atmosphere where we can start talking and sharing a bit since I'm not a talkative person at home. Normally it started by explaining what anime is that or why they react too dramatically like that...Lately, Mom does enjoy Toriko (I feel really surprised about this, maybe cus it's about cooking).

When I was like 6-7 my dad always watched pokémon with me, if that counts. He didn't like it tho. My mum tried to watch Death Note with me and my sister. "This is what you're doing with your free time ? That's messed up." That was her reaction. And then we never attempted or talked about it ever again lol.

I've tried to get my mom to watch Your Lie in April and Death Note cause I know she likes those kind of stories but before she even tries them, she says "I hate everything animation". I hate how a lot of people won't watch anime for that reason alone. Like society brainwashing people into thinking anything animated is for kids.

My mother has made it clear that she is not interested in watching anime. I get the feeling she just regards it as a "kids" genre. But at the same time, she gives warnings about not watching "older shows". She also says she trusts me to make the right choice regarding what to watch. I love my mother.

Well *deep sigh* my mom is more into Korean drama, like she's obsessed with it. In other hand she thinks anime is a cartoon which is only for children. So i have my older sis in my hand ;p she enjoys to watching anime a lot even though not a fan like me anyway.

is that counts OP?

My mom watched the Secret World of Arrietty because it was based off of The Borrowers, and my dad seemed to like the first episode of Psycho-Pass, but for the most part they don't really care much about anime either way.
On the other hand, I've gotten my little brother into a lot of shows (Soul Eater, Noragami, and Parasyte are his favorites). The first anime he watched was actually Wolf Children, and I think the fact that it was able to make him cry so hard at the end was what made him start respecting anime in the first place.

My parents would have a hard time reading subs and an even harder time paying attention to dubs because English isn't their first language, so I most likely will never watch anime with them.

I learned from snooping on my mom's computer she watches hentai ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Or at least she did 7 years ago.

Neither of my parents watch anime, or have interest in it. I watch alone in my bedroom with headphones on. Occasionally my younger brother will ask me what I am watching. My uncle loves anime, so I occasionally watch with him. Sadly couldn't get him into Violence Jack...which he walked in on the rape scene cause he forgot something for his college classes. So I mean he probs thinks it's a hentai.

I occasionally give my mom anime recommendations and let her borrow my blu rays/DVDs.
So far, she's seen Kino's Journey, Ghost in the Shell (the original movie), Paprika, and is currently watching Lupin III: The Woman called Fujiko Mine.

Nah my mom doesn't like anything animated for the most part. She's also someone who stops paying attention to everything and has to have half the show explained to her, and I just get too annoyed doing that.

I made my mom watch fairy tail with me awhile ago when I was obsessed with the series, she got really into it too and loved gray.
Other than that no, but I watch anime a lot in the past and now with my brother but I don't watch anime with my parents.

Well I haven't watched anime with my parents, but I'm definitely turning my son into an anime elitist and have him here in MAL.

No, I never have. My mother probably wouldn't bring herself to watch animation. I guess my father could like something like Monster, but it is too long for him to watch.

Oh hell yea. I watch anime with my family all the time.

Most of my immediate family actually enjoys anime to some extent. My dad and sister especially. My dad even named me after a character from Final Fantasy. Last night we finished watching Another together, and he wants to watch the Fate series with me sometime. We're also planning on watching Watamote soon. (Though I've already seen that one.)

I consider myself lucky to have nerdy parents. We can do fun dad/daughter stuff. Like go to conventions in cosplay together. Or this one time, he bought an explicit yuri manga for me because he could tell I was kinda awkward about buying that sorta thing. So he did it for me.

I'm so blessed.

My parents introduced me to anime in the first place, so hey... no problems for me, though I'm an exception rather than the rule.
Particularly if you started with anime in the late 1990s and early 2000s when the anime community was much much smaller than it is now and normally you had to rely on cheap video's with dodgy subs or a stock of anime at the local vhs stores.

I wouldn't watch it with them, because I usually like watching things alone, but it would be cool if they tried to get into it.

My parents could care less. My favorite anime is definitely up their alley (ie nature) but that alone dictates they'd have little to no interest in watching anime nevermind my number one is subbed & slow paced.
I might be able to get them to watch Princess Mononoke & other Ghibli films, possibly even Moribito but that'd be the extent of it.

My family, both my parents actually watch anime and other cartoons with me because we're a small family, sharing cherish moments together since I was a little girl. I usually watched anime on TV when we have dinner because back to those past years, I didn't have the Internet connection to stream or watch online :(.

My mother was even into the anime that she kept asking me about the details and we discussed together - those were old good memories.

We often followed the series of Sakura, One Piece, Sailor Moon. Now we still keeping that good manner of watching Conan and Doraemon.

Feel like we are all kids again :)

★I watched Pokémon on TV with my mum when I was little. My dad isn't interested in anything except news and sports -_-
★My brother loves anime so much as me, but the last time I watched anime with him was when I was little and we watched Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokémon.
★My eldest cousin loves anime too.

I'd watch anime with my parents if it's like Ghibli Studio movies or similar to them, if not then I wouldn't because I'd be too embarrassed :''D

My brother (who is 26) still enjoys anime, although most of them are mainstream. I'd imagine if I could find one with no fanservice, it'd be easier to watch an anime with him.
I've also recommended him a couple of anime for when he has time off.

I played the Noragami Aragoto op in the car, my dad loved it and said he wants to watch it with me. He enjoyed the first season so much that he watched the second season by himself and he's waiting for the third.

Both of my parents were into anime before I was. I remember watching Macross with my dad when I was little (or Robotech, as we knew it). Also, my mom told me she watched Eva while pregnant with me.

Nowadays, my dad still watches mecha once in a while, though he's also seen AOT, Fate/Zero/UBW and Elfen Lied (and probably others beyond my knowledge). My mom watches and reads a lot of school romance, but she's also enjoyed my recommendations: Steins Gate, Code Geass, Gurren Lagann, Shinsekai Yori, Katanagatari, to name a few. I even watched the Kizumonogatari movies with her. Re-watching these series was pretty fun, didn't really get awkward.

My mom watched a bunch of Studio Ghibli with me with English Dubs, I think she liked Princess Mononoke the most. She doesn't like listening to subbed anime though, as I found when I first started watching the anime on Netflix in the living room.

Unfortunately, she was there while this scene from SAO was playing out... she doesn't think very highly of anime anymore.

I watch anime occasionally with my mum, however I always make sure to watch them fully before I show them to her. I'm not about traumatising my mum any time soon, although she does have an annoying habit of asking what I'm watching as I'm currently viewing it and then joining herself. Baring in mind I could be on episode 3 or 21 which often leads to comments of whatever anime being boring or confusing. What's also a bit fustrating is she refuses to watch subbed anime.

My parents watched Death Note and the first 300+ episodes of Detective Conan with me and my sister :3
What I like about those times is that my mom would definitely cook/bake something so that we have something to eat while watching :D

I've watched anime with my 2 little brothers and a little sister for years... And we do it almost daily, tough the time got shorter as we got older and more busy.
Back in the days my father used to watch Naruto with me on Jetix... he liked it, and like Rock Lee a lot.
Mother saw some episodes of different anime, in the past when I watched Animax, bt she never got into or understood them...

My mom watched anime for the first time with me when I´m started to get into it, I guess it was vigilance thing, it was Hakkenden touhou hakken ibun (she never watched it completely).
However, she actually likes some of them Bleach, Yowamushi Pedal, Code geass and Uta no prince-sama. We also watched together Clannad, White album, 07 ghost , Air, Kanon, Zankyou no terror and Ranpo Kitan Game of Laplace.

My parents are slightly otaku themselves. As Oremonogatari was airing I watched it with them on the chromecast, similarly to the OP, along with Silver Spoon and Shirokuma cafe (and bizarrely the obscure Ojisan to Marshmallow as well... yeah, don't ask). I've also watched some anime films with them too, most notably Ghibli films when I was younger.
I think I watched the first episodes of Attack on Titan and Death Note with them too but I don't think either of them interested them.

I guess I'm rather a minority.
