Is your family open to anime?

Recommended Posts

My family is more accepting then they would be if it weren't for my oldest brother getting me into DBZ at such a young age. My dad was also stationed in Korea looooong ago (like the late 80s I think) and read manga while there, but outside of my household its almost completely taboo.  I avoid talking about anime while visiting grandparents and others. I am the only otaku in my family and I am OK with that. :kiss::?:-/

Yeah, no one in my family really has any interest in it but me. And I was one of those kids who wasn't allowed to watch Pokémon because it was satanic.

Hahaha open? As in okay with me watching? I suppose but just like any other “niche” hobby it’s one of those “I’m in it alone” things. Pretty difficult to find friends into it as well.

That’s insane! I get it though, some of my family were jahovas witnesses and I wasn’t allowed to watch or play anything that would “expose” me to anything that went against the belief. Totally did though xD

Sorta, my mom and dad are the only ones who know about me watching anime. My mom is ok with it (except for hentai), and my dad doesnt really mind . I haven't told anyone else DERP :P

My mom is Japanese and when she was living in Japan she would read manga and watch anime such as Yu Yu Hakusho and Hajime no Ippo. My dad doesn't really care probably because he married a Japanese person

My mother found K-ON! to be fricken hilarious, so that answers that question. :P

My father is indifferent to anime.

At work, I do try to avoid talking about anime unless of course my colleagues like anime. :)

They dont watch it themselves. like none of my family does. and i mean this includes aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents. But they allow me to talk about it to them even if they have no idea what im talking about. they have also tried getting me anime merchandise but never know where to look. lol its quite funny. Right now and im not sure why but i am currently obsessed with Deku Midoriya. just the anime itself i love but deku.. i dunno.. somethings different lol.
