    Do your parents watch anime?

    Since I'm watching my DVR'd episodes of Monster right now, I was wondering if anyone's parents watch any anime. This comes to mind because my mom watches Monster with me every week. She also really enjoys watching Miyazaki films too.

    Re: Do your parents watch anime?

    Considering my parents told me "What's so special about those cartoon books" this answer is a hell no for me.
    Well, they have watched some Pixar movies if you want to take it a broad view. They would never be interested in anime.

    Ha no not even a little. My mom watched Pokemon with me when I was little for like the first 5 minutes before she called it dumb and left the room. My whole family still can't rap their heads around my "backwards books".

    NO.

    My parents think both anime and manga are for kids. Whenever they see me reading/watching it, they say to me "you should grow up and stop watching Japanese cartoons" LOL! or they keep bringing up Uni "how's studying going, are you up to date with all your work" and stuff like that. I've tried explaining it to them but they just don't get it/believe me.

    Well i think its the same by almost all 18+ here im also not an exeption.I experienced something like that.

    Now its like a quiet agreement i do wnatever i want and they do their own stuff so noone asks noone comments.
    Well manga-anime is a reason why i started drawing again so they are happy that i do not sit the whole day in the front of the computer or TV anymore XD

    Re: Do your parents watch anime?

    Erm...My parents doesn't mind watching Detective Conan, they actually enjoy it with all the different cases and so on. My mum enjoys movies by Studio Gihibi...she always says My Neighbour Totoro is really good.

    My parent's doesn't really mind me watching anime, suprisingly enough. I have no idea why they don't say much about it. I do try and hide certain animes from my parents.

    As long as I get good grades they wouldn't say much I guess...

    I wanted a totally girly sigature...

    Re: Do your parents watch anime?

    Looks like we're an oddity, Lila, haha! My parents don't care what I'm into. They realize they're just cartoons and drawings (although, I won't be showing them my copies of MPD Psycho anytime soon). They know I'm a nerd, but it isn't all I do (they might get a bit upset if all my time was devoted to something like anime/manga).

    Re: Do your parents watch anime?

    My mom used to wonder what I found interesting about anime and manga, when all of a sudden I caught her watching Pokemon daily. Then she told me she used to watch the original Astroboy when she was a kid and enjoyed it a lot.

    She watched all of Fullmetal Alchemist when it aired on local tv (even cried on that scene), some Rave and some Cyborg 009. She watched some Gundam SEED with me and has asked when will we watch more (but she has to me on a special mood).

    She's more of a gamer, though.

    My dad used to be the one that told me to grow up and stop watching cartoons, and that that stuff wasn't for ladies. But recently he's been trying to understand what exactly is it that I like.

    Since 99.99999999999999% of us have gone through this thing of having our parents tell us to not watch anime because it is stupid or it wont help us grow, or some other lame excuse, do you guys, and girls, think that with your own kids you will be more tolerant with what they watch??

    P.S. I will.
