    Absolutely not. They're very closed in terms of knowing the trends and fads of this generation; quite traditional and close minded about most stuff too XD The only other family member who watches anime is my older sister.

    Re: Do your parents watch anime?

    I think this entirely depends on how old (what generation) your parents-family-siblings (and thus you too) are, lol.

    when you got parents who were around when there wasn't even tv at all... they either or both see anime as kiddish cartoons or filth (such as due to fan-service or adult topics, as again, to them any "cartoon" graphical medium, is a "cartoon" - a show for little kids to watch, and so having content that's for older ages disturbs them)...

    They see the "cartoon" graphic medium of it, and ignorantly decide it's fr kids, refusing to actually watch and listen to it, or they do in denial, refusing to accept the sophicating, challenging, and provacative advanced and complex dialogue and content that makes you critically think just as much (actually more, lol) than other "grown-up" shows.

    "The internet’s perfect for all manner of things, but productive discussion ain’t one of them. It provides scant room for debate and infinite opportunities for fruitless point-scoring: the heady combination of perceived anonymity, gestated responses, random heckling and a notional “live audience” quickly conspire to create a “perfect storm” of perpetual bickering." - Charlie Brooker

    Re: Do your parents watch anime?

    Neither of my parents watch anime or have ever read manga. My mom knows what Totoro and Sailor Moon are because I was obsessed with them as a kid. Although she doesn't really know anything else about it. My dad... It just wouldn't fit his personality. XD He loved the show Teen Titans when my little sisters were obsessed with it because he thought it was funny, but that's not anime.

    My little sister watched Death Note and really loved it. She loved Sailor Moon when we were kids and all, but she's not really into it. We love Yugioh and yugioh abridged though!!! XD I really have no idea about my youngest sister. My older sister used to read a little manga here and there, but I don't think she ever really got into it. Her husband really loves Bleach, so I'm sure she watches that from time to time.

    As far as anyone in my family saying I waste my time with manga or anime, they don't. My family is very accepting for the most part because we're all pretty weird. I sit at the top of that pyramid though. My dad would probably think it was a little weird, but he doesn't live with me anymore and doesn't know me all the well to even know I like it. I never talk about anime or manga with my family though. Can't miss the DGM novels lying on my desk and floor though.

    My mom is sometimes watching Detective Conan on TV with us and I have a feeling she's starting to enjoy it.

    No, but I rembeer I once showed to my mother Slam Dunk and I think she has taken an interest in it.
