Parents and Anime

My question is what are your parents' opinions on anime? Do they dislike or like it?
Do they accept your passion in it?
At first, during my "DBZ passion era," my ma considered DBZ evil in a playful way. Didnt bother me what she thought. Lol.
Yet, she surprised me with my first Newtype anime magazine with Athrun and Kira on the cover few yrs back. I was happy and cherished it. :)
She even gained interest in Kadaj from FFVII: Advent Children despite the CGI touch she likes. She liked his long hair. Lol. And the bikes he and the ride. That made me smile.
What about your parents?
I would like to know your story.

my dad will sit through it, probably trying to find common interests sort of thing, but my mom calls it too 2d and she would laugh and snicker at the dubbed versions (heck even I do) of some of the first anime that I watched like dbz and the likes. but she doesn't even like cgi or other anime I've shown her in the future. she doesn't like foreign films or stuff she gotta read. but she doesn't condemn me and encourage me not to watch it.

My parents don't like it whenever I watch these 'cartoons' but they still deal with it. Yup, yup... still, like 4 years ago when I was finding out about manga and THEN anime, I put an ecchi anime wallpaper on my computer, they said that I'm going to turn into a weak-spirited child. Look at me now. My mom is literally jealous sometimes because of my habits and sometimes scolds me about what I do in my spare time, but hey, I keep up with what I do, lol, and I still study. Besides. ^^

Same here but even after so much complaining after so many years, she still hates it and I think even so more than before, my father just gave up and nods in discontent and both tell me to stop watching/reading and collecting Anime/Manga or related items telling me to leave childish things to children~heh like that would stop me~*end rant*

The thing is... although the types of happiness one can experience are limited, there are unlimited variations of misfortunes.

My parents are... neutral with it, really. I doubt they really care.

My mom never really cared. When I first got into anime, when I was 13, by a friend, she thought it was kinda weird and would always ask me why do I watch things like that. Then when I got older she watched Advent Children with me and thought it was cool even though she fell asleep halfway through. She's also watched Kiddy Grade with me which she bought for me on Valentine's Day because for some reason she wanted to get me a Valentine's Day present. My dad would also wondered A LOT about why I watched anime and liked it so much when I was around 12/13, but now he doesn't care though he did make jokes about it from time to time, but now he is also cool with it and even bought me all the Vampire Princess Miyu dvd's online with his credit card which he did completely on his own after he found out I liked it. That made me happy.

Will I ever be able to escape this eternal living Hell, this endless cycle of being used, hurt and betrayed…? After all others had hated and abandoned me, he was the first to ever view me with only love and kindness in his eyes... He sees me for what I truly am... I love and will never abandon him... Our hearts will shine together... And break through the darkness and discord that is Eternity...

They don't care so much... sometimes just make some comments about, when I'm watching. But they aren't really interested.

I had known anime since kid and at that time my parents didn't mind to buy me manga and DVD.
Until now, they still not oppose me about my hobby. Well, sometimes they warn me to reduce watching too much anime because they afraid my grade will drop. But I kept my grades well and they seems fine with it.

It don't make any harm to me, so they think. And they also told me that at least it's better than drugs.
