My parents don't watch anime. But there was this one time I was watching Minami-ke and my mom watched an episode or two.
My parents watched some of those WMT series together with me when I was a kid and sometimes also Pokémon or Sailor Moon.
But since I'm not a kid anymore there's no reason to control what I watch on TV
And since they're both not into comics (and never were), they don't read any.
My dad actually did watch anime with me, even stuff like One Piece or Bleach some while back, probably because both my brother and I enjoyed them. He never really hates anime, at least as far as I recalled. In fact, I got that kind of feeling that he kind of likes One Piece (probably since he kept on saying Zoro's name when we mentioned something related to it...come to think of it now, I don't really know why it has to be Zoro either, since Zoro is never my favorite character in One Piece, neither is my brother's. ._."), though never was able to ask him for sure about that. Not my mom though, since my mom has that thought that watching anime is a waste of time for nothing. .-.
My mother rarely reads/watches manga/animation, and she really doesn't mind me and my sister watching/reading them.
However, my father thinks manga/animation stuffs are too immature/stupid and wasting a valuable time. He treats me like 13 years old because I still read and watch them.

Yeah I remember my dad telling me to grow up and stop watching kids stuff ...
lol, my parents watches them with me, its just shows that shown in drawings thats all.
theres no difference to them XD
I wish they did...They still kind of see it as something for kids,so yeah...
My mom doesn't really care about what I do, I guess. She's never complained about it; but she's never watched it either.
My dad has called me a freak several times. And it hasn't been jokingly in a while.
If it wasn't for my parents, I would never have been interested in anime and manga in the first place! My mom was a huge fan of Sailor Moon and used to talk about the series with her friends. She also watched Inuyasha, Detective Conan, and Twelve Kingdoms. (The first two because of my brother and I; the second because she was a fan of the book.) On the other hand, my dad's not that interested in anime/manga.
My mom read a lot of retro mangas when she was younger such as Cyborg 009. The most recent title she read was Death Note. In fact she loved Death Note so much that she read it twice.
My father likes to watch soccer games and two or three series in tv... nothing more T~T
But my mother loves these kind of things XD
not only she watches anime and read manga, she also studies japanese... and sometimes she tries raw episodes and such... she also likes games... such a good friend she is... hehehe
My parents are 56 year old... what about yours? Younger parents might accept it more easily... at least is what I notice from my friends parents...
Well, My parents said manga n anime is childish.Quote:
Even when I'm a child (11, I think..), I have to read Inuyasha inside a blanket with a flashlight so that my mum wouldn't recognize.
Laughing when ẹnoying manga/anime will be considered crazy in my house.
Much for the answer?
No, they think I'm wasting time watching anime and wasting money buying manga. But, interestingly, since I spend so much time on anime and manga they seem to have learned a some things about them (e.g. the boy can stretch like rubber is called Luffy ) which is somewhat of a surprise to me since I never pay attention to what they're watching.
Yeah, but my parents (and my elder sister) only watches old animes (70s-80s-ish), arabic programs, dramas, news and documentaries, but I and my second older sister (who also watches sitcoms) watches recent anime. I showed some of my anime I liked to my sisters, then said they liked it. However, my parents hate hentai. When I watch anime that shows huge loads of fanservice like Yosuga no Sora, I hide with another webpage in order that my parents don't see when watching.

What a cool thread...well my parents aren't fans of what I do...I explained this entire phenomenon, and they understand what it is, it's just that they don't find it interesting enough I guess...my mom only watches television, because it helps her to go to sleep, and my dad watches news and sports...
I wonder though, what would've happened if I have gotten a lot earlier in this manga world, or maybe we had the manga culture more widespread here in the first place...I mean I watched Sailor Moon and my brother watched Pokemon, but it was counted as mere japanese cartoon...we had no idea what world is behind them
