my parents are clueless. they think it all contains bad[dirty] stuff. my dad only likes astro boy. i'm so proud...not.

06-13-2005, 09:47 PM
my parents think anime is stupid and pointless and think that i like too much.

06-13-2005, 09:53 PM
Thankfuly, my Grandmother understands that she doesn't understand! She has come to terms with the notion that the Japanese often come up with some very interesting shows. Most of the stuff I watch she's okay will, but she has no idea that I like yuri/yaoi. Whats more, she doesn't know what the heck that is! Thank god!

Well, my mother is okay with Inuyasha and Yuyu Hakusho.. And my father is okay with Dragon Ball , DBZ, and Yuyu Hakusho.
They both say that I watch way too much though..

*joins in the fray...

hmmm... hard to say. Well, my parents have no problem with me watching anime, just I try not to overdoing it. Sometimes back then, my dad enjoyed Rurouni Kenshin/Samurai -X or Dragonball or any anime being that been shown on free TV although he sometimes falls to sleep half -way thru'. Sometimes, my parents watched Crayon Shin -chan together and laughed 'bout it.

My parents think that animes are a waste of money, and time..o_O But my mum likes some of the anime songs such as the opening song of Ayashi no Ceres....Eventhough she does'nt like anime, she does watch it sometimes, and Crayon Shin Chan is an exception, coz she really enjoys watching that...O__O

My dad tells that anime is a stupid thing for him but my mother does like the anime and manga series,but she really doesn't read one seriously she might just read a bit.MY BRO IS AN OTAKU!!!

06-14-2005, 10:25 AM
me:i bought another anime dvd
mom:more sailor moon beam?
me....umm,no.......(i already have all the seasons and movies)...

06-14-2005, 10:47 AM
My parents say nothing, but I just know that they believe that it is all kiddy stuff. They always compare whatever anime I watch to the Sailor Moon dub...

I'd just love to show them a few shots of Fullmetal Alchemist (such as Basque Gran's messy, messy death)

06-14-2005, 10:51 AM
I mostly watch whats on T.V. but my mom is usually sleeping then so she doesn't care.Or i watch my movies of like CCS/Cardcaptors and she doesn't care aboout that.

My dad only saw an anime item twice.When I was 6 on my birthday(This was the first day I heard of anime!:banana: )I wanted this Cardcaptors fashion doll.So he bought it for me.(I still have it it is so cute!)Then a couple months ago I broght 4 of them to his house to show him and he still remembered!I also watched 3 anime shows at his house but he wasn't paying attention.Other than that he doesn't know what anime is so he doesn't care...

06-14-2005, 10:59 AM
My dad is the one who got me into anime so hes ok with some. My mom hates it. My sis hates.

06-14-2005, 11:02 AM
they dont know anything about anime

06-14-2005, 11:04 AM
Yeah they just judge it but I don't care. They can say whatever no skin off my back.

06-14-2005, 11:07 AM
*ME is going to daddy*
Me: I like anime *shows a drawing*
Dad: I really like it, Good job keep it up!
(a day later)
Me: Hallo daddy
Dad: Guess what I bought you some anime DVD's !!
Me: YAY!!! *celebrates*

My father supports me cause he knows I really like drawing anime/ manga and he knows I want to do something in the art later .. And I like/ can learn from anime and my father knows it. And he also saw ghost in the shell , akira and some more ( I think) So I'm lucky :')
And for my mother.. She didn't know that it existed (I guess)

The most frequent sentence is: "When will you grow up!"

06-14-2005, 11:53 AM
My Parents don't really care about what anime i watch, because they refer to all the animes i watch as sailor moon, so yeah, but when it comes to music they care

06-14-2005, 09:55 PM
My mom doesn't even know what anime is...and she watches inuyasha. :<_<: :D

06-14-2005, 10:01 PM
my parents say and i quote "Anna who?" it was funny one time my brother KONG asked my mom to buy him a manga book. what was funny was the cover had a girl and shes was wearing a half naked outfit. me and my brother had to explain it to her for about 8 mins. it was pretty funny that day

06-14-2005, 10:27 PM
For me, it's like this:
Me: Hey Dad, there is this cool new anime that I saw called Samurai Champloo.
Dad: *Looking at a blank wall* That's nice
Me: Yeah, there are these two guys that, like, rule at using swords--
Dad: *Totally ignoring me* Sounds interesting *Drinks another Beer*
Me: ...*Walks away*

06-15-2005, 02:21 PM

06-15-2005, 03:29 PM
My dad doesn't understand the difference between Japanese animation and American cartoons (Looney Toons, The Super Friends). It's really a shame, I think he would enjoy Cowboy Bebop if he can get past the fact that it's animated. Although, he did sit through a few episodes of Dragon Ball.:rolleyes:

I luck out. I'm old enough to be the parent. If I had kids, I'd incourage them to watch,,,, but only if I get to watch to.

06-15-2005, 09:40 PM
my parents dont care but when ever i watch it with my bro around he always makes fun of me and its not like haha thats stupid kind of making fun its more like him standing over me for the whole time making jokes about it and and calling me retarded and crap like wow this stuff will really get the girls and why dont you do something with your life(he by the way is a drunk collage kid). it pisses me off but i dont really care it just makes him look stupid and makes me hate him more.

06-16-2005, 03:42 AM
Wut happened...
Me : Hey dad^^ I bought another anime xD
Dad : What?! another "cartoon"?
Me : Not a cartoon! anime.. A N I M E ><
Dad : it's still a cartoon.
Me : Nooooooooooo!!!
Dad ... *sigh* *walks away*

-ROFL- that's too funny...
well i'm still trying to make my Father say Anime instead of Enima -.- it really annoys me

06-23-2005, 03:45 PM
whenever i showed my mom anime, she closes her eyes and just listens to the dialouge. we're usually watching inuyasha so at the time they kept saying their names like inuyasha and kagome and it sounded like porn becuase they were fighting and moaning...

mom:what's anime it's porn isn't it? Stop watching porn!
me:here we go again.

My mom hates all cartoons. Any whatsoever. Period. Anime included, so she has never actually seen any except for Speed Racer.

*Me and my best friend are watching Cardcaptor Sakura*
Mom: Doesn't them talking in japanese so high pitched annoy you?
Me: No
Mom: What about reading all those subtitles?
Me: Not really...
*An hour, later my friends mom comes in to talk to her so I pause the DVD*
My friends Mom*after they are done talking*: OK Continue with the cute little Japanese girls talking in an extremely high pithec voice.

I know my mother has made other comments on anime I just can't remember....

(sooo unfair!!:sleep: ) but still its fun cause they dont refuse and they gladly make me watch any anime i want as long as they cud also watch.. ehehehee:laugh: :grinjump:

08-28-2005, 09:32 AM
I personally don't ask any of my parents about the wonders of anime.
I believe they'll just ignore the topic.

08-28-2005, 10:16 AM
The only way to get anime is granpa My parent say that 5.00 anime is to is to damn expensive so I go to gramps he says "yeah which one you want"
