Just last week I was listening to D12 - My Band.
So my dad was staring at the screen and I said: "what's up?"
He was like: "What kinda dumbass song is this?"
Moi: "It's SUPPOSED to be funny dad.."
Dad: "You can understand that?"
Moi: "Yes, of course. Internet is educational"

He pays the bills and doesn't like it sometimes:P
We never talk much.

I never had this problem since my parents grew up knowing what anime was and even saw a little when they were young. My mom told me she use to watch some Sailor Moon when she was younger and my dad was the person who rented all the animes tapes for me to watch when I was a kid. However, my dad does have a problem with me playing games, I guess it is because back in China they never had any video games at their time. He keeps saying videos games are for kids and blah blah blah.

I have the same kind of problem, but since I'm 40 and my parents are in their 70's, it doesn't really affect me. Except for the times when I go back home like around holidays and get together with 2 of my nieces ( who are of college age) who also like anime, and we watch and discus it. Then the rest of the family is "Not more of that Japanese stuff again." at which point we just ignore them.
:fingers: (With this kind of attitude)

My parents don't really mind I watch anime, they do think I'm weird, but that's not only cuz of the anime. XD

They still describe anime as "some kind of cartoons" even after I explained what it is to them for the 100th time. ^^"

My friends just ignore me whenever I start to talk about anime again... only one of my friends likes anime [yay, I recently managed to drag het along in my anime addiction! ^^"] the others also think of it as cartoons, think it's weird, and the fact that it's in jap sounds even weirder to them. Tsch, baka's. XD

my parents do think i'm watching some kiddy cartoons too, not much of any understanding of how anime has evolved over the years and has been made for adults viewing too... ANIME is not CARTOONS for goodness sake... and i actually get the thrill of watching azumanga daioh !!

Do you have the same problem? And how do you deal with it? Any tips?
When I was 21, I've already moved out for years. And if the biggest issue between u and your parents is about anime, consider yourself lucky.

[ONTOPIC]

I think I told my side but here it goes.....my father tolerates my liking to anime, he recognizes me as an individual and have a hobby. He saw some of my favorite show and laughed his ass off (he's 50)......my mother (who is conservative Christian)....in the other hand.......thinks is a waste and questions about some posters I have of Onegai Teacher, Oh, My Goddess, etc.......(just heard a conversation between my mother and the church leader, quote "anime is work of the devil..'yada yada fucking yada' ") _
my older brother is ok with it, he likes some of them....hell, he like some of the wallpaper I find and but them in is PC

/c/ is one of the more moderated part I think because of sick anonymous people who flame (now this is about /y/ but before it was about /l/) so it would be more likely there that he would get a ban ^^ Though I think he would flam far much on /l/ but that's another story ^^

lol same...I'm very proud of having been able to get one of my friends hooked on anime...The others are rather oblivious to it, they don't think it's weird, they're just not into it...My parents think it's funny. They used to think it was silly of me, but then I convinced them that there is, in fact, some intellectual value in (some) anime, and they shut up about it.

And french fries! You forgot the french fries for your own good stereotype thingie! (err... chips, pommes.. whatever)


My parents stopped their complaining when my collection of manga volumes reached the 250-mark (until now I've got more than 320 and still climbing)
Before they were like "that's little and girly stuff, don't you ever have anything else to do but reading and watching that sh..?"
I threatened them to run around in a "La Blue Girl" T-Shirt if they didn't leave me alone. Surprisingly it worked! (by the way, the T-Shirt's not mine. Damn! )

That was two years ago. I got used to close my door and get left alone while "anime-crazy". Last year, I moved into another city, starting university. I packed my stuff and took (of course!) some mangas/anime/posters with me.

And then I came home for christmas the first time... and my mother really asked me: "Hey, didn't you have more volumes of Kenshin?"
I: "err... Yes? The last thirteen or so are in my appartment?"
She: "Uhm... when you visit next time, you wouldn't bring them along, would you?"
I: ... *facefault*

Obviously my mother got bored someday and searched my room for, uh, /different/ lecture than her own (which happens to be these stupid peace, love&freedom thingies with these pretty *sexy* covers of half naked men and women... *coughcough* you get the image? and those oh-so-great romance novels...*ewww*)
Now she got addicted. Bad for me, cause I'm a collector and don't like bends in my mangas at all Had to train her being carfully with 'em...

My dad doesn't say anything. I think, when my mum goes to my room, he hides in the attic or so... it's a mad world. ^^

so much for my story.

What it with everybody wanting to move out as fast as possible?
I know people here who remain with their parents until they die O.o
It's a country's tradition I guess.

I am still looking for my own place, and yeah THEN they'll shut up.
Until then I just have to convince them.

I said my age earlier, but I am 21 too. Having been on my own since I was 17, (and practically on my own since about 8) I would say you have a great thing going with your parents, whether they "mix with anime" or not. ^_~ I suggest waiting until you are comfortable or stable enough financially or things just get too bad at home. Living with your parents at 21 is not so awful. Moving out and having to move back in is far far worse.

My dad claims that most characters are little girls and are supposed to be for little girls... O.o
So actually he says that my posters are not for guys at all.

I also have some Hellsing things, and that he understands because Alucard is a cool guy, a man and not a young girl...
I tried to explain the whole thing, but don't know how, because he says people might think I'm a pedophile or something.

I know I'm not, and I'm just an Anime nutcase.
How on earth can you explain you parents that being an Anime fan is just not for little kids only.

They think I should only have naked pictures of women and aggressive military stereotype guys in my posters...

Do you have the same problem? And how do you deal with it? Any tips?
Is he one of those Baby Boomers that doesn't understand why you'd like something thats japanese so much since they bombed pearl harbor or something? Cause you know, there's old ppl who had a father that fought in the war or something
