I don't think my parents say anything. Although my brothers sometimes make fun of me and day why are you watching pokemon or Yu Gi Oh which are quite known for being childrens shows well over here anyway. But if anyone says its for kids I think I will shut them up.







Also even if it was for kids I wouldn't care I mean if you like it watch it end of story.

My parents know I like to watch anime, but they don't know what I watch (luckily) and don't seem to be bothered about me watching anime as long it does not interfer with what they want me to do... ^_^

My mom praised me for watching anime once... she said "Oh, I didn't know there was a romance anime"... I later told her that the anime was called School Days and told her about the ending 8D she probably wont say anything good about anime again

My parents are mixed about it. ;o My mom is all whatever about it but still supports me. Though my dad thinks it's nonsense. I guess he just wont get it? But they are both fine with me watching it as long as i dont fail my classes or spend unnecessary money on it.

*Realizes you are not around, but why waste a good topic*



I would ask them to sit down and watch an anime with you. Just be careful of what you pick though.. Maybe, pick one with a deep plot story like Air TV, Kanon, and/or Clannad ^^ Something, with a meaning that you have to think about that may not jump out at you right away ^^



If you really want to prove to them that anime goes beyond being your typical cartoon, show them Elfen Lied or Here and Now, There and Then (did I say ti right?) ^^

My parents always call anime cartoon~ But I dont mind, it's not like they are interfering with me. And to be honest I read manga rather than watch anime. My brothers however only watch anime. My parents basically know Death Note, Gundam and DB/DBZ/DBGT by heart(Because of my brothers).... Sometimes I watch Naruto with my mom. I think she secretly likes it *shrugs* so all is well = D



I remember when my brother played an episode of Elfen Lied on TV... Mom was shocked xDDD

^this



or



if you catch them watching cartoons....

just ask them "Aren't cartoons only for kids?"



two replies that i hear from my parents & my replies...

~ "I'm just browsing through channels."

=reply=> "Excuses....i was here for the past "n" mins."

~ "This is different from your animes."

=reply=> "So mindless violence are the ones should be watched, not the ones that has a story behind it."



or



give a fully detailed crapstudy on what anime is ...

differentiate the difference between anime & cartoons...



or



move out of the house..



~~



did all of it.
