I spent all last week watching Initial D with my dad, and I think he's more into it than I am.
So now I'm wondering if you've watched anime with one or both of your parents, and which one it was. How is it? Or are your parents into anime as well? Or are you a parent that watches anime with your kids, or are your kids not into it?

My parents aren't really into anime... My dad hates anything with subtitles, but my mom seemed mildly interested in Kenshin...

Her real addiction came in the form of the GTO live-action dorama. She was watching the episodes on my computer. I was so tired so I said "After this episode can I go to sleep?" and she just kept saying "Next episode!"... oh man... didn't get to sleep til around 4 a.m... @_@

A couple summers ago my dad and I watched Cowboy Bebop and Noir. So far I've been unsuccessful at getting him to watch any more anime.

I got my dad hooked on Hellsing, and I plan on watching the Black Lagoon episodes that I saved on our DVR with both of my parents.

I'd try to get my dad to watch anime, if he wasn't always busy watching Cops like 30 times a day... or Halmark channel... or Lifetime Movie Network... God I hate the TV he watches.

Under construction. Who doesn't like plain text anyway?

My mum has watched Inuyasha with me a few times, most of the time she doesn't get it because there's too many demons popping up here and there, and the Malay dubs for the series on local TV isn't very good. She'd rather have it in English. I've tried to introduce other anime to her (something that isn't too violent, has a twisting plot or fan service), but she doesn't seem keen. My dad is pretty hard to convert, he's too much into Chinese dramas and English action movies. Pity... Besides that, I used to watch Pokemon in front of the whole family when I was a kid. The adults would just sit and talk, and occasionally stop to ask me why I like it so much.

Yeah, back in the day my parents loved watching Rurouni Kenshin with me. They would get all excited, "ASH, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO WATCH KENSHIN?!" (I have the DVDs, so they could bug me anytime to watch it) And whenever they would watch, they'd ask 345846845 questions while it was playing. It was irritating D:

I got my mother to watch all of Magic Knight Rayearth with me. Sometimes she'll just randomly stop and watch whatever my little sister and I might be watching, but that's the only complete series she ever really showed interest in that she's seen any of.

Well, my parents would never get why I like anime (they don't like anime, especially not my father, he'll think it's for kids since it's cartoonish), but I remember watching Princess Mononoke with my aunt. I know that's not a serie, but hey, it's still anime ^_^'

I've watched all of Rurouni Kenshin and Kanon with my mom. At first I think she thought it was pretty weird, but with both, after we got further into the story she got really into it. My sister's watching Inuyasha with her. I'm still arguing with myself over wheather or not I should try to show her Fullmetal Alchemist...

My dad hates anime. He always tends to get away from it. Infact he told me that he is tired of the anime I watch. He watches news all day long. It really freaks me out . My mom is a bit understanding though. She isn't interested in anime. But, she doesn't criticize it. She thinks that it will increase my imagination.

Yes. ^^ My mom loves Code Geass and all the Gundam serieses, and both my parents like Death Note. (They like it more than I do, actually...) My parents don't seek out anime to watch like I do, but if I think they'll like something, they'll watch it. It's great having parents who are so open-minded.

I watched Naruto Shippuden with both of them...
My dad thought it was too long and boring that he fell asleep and my Mom LOVED it.
And then after that they argued about which one is stronger, Neji or Shikamaru, and I say : Kakashi is way much hotter ^^

Nope can't say that I ever have. I've watched plenty of anime with my sister, but never the parentals.

My mom just doesn't like anime to begin with. She doesn't have anything against anime it's just not her thing. My dad he sort of likes it, but only certain series. We've never honestly sat down and watched anything together since his tastes differ so much from mine in regards to anime.
