    Did you know we have the same birthday? Which means you are turning 16?

    I am going to give you some advice that might not go over to well with some people. Do as he says, respectfully. Whether you like it or not he is your "father" and has the right to make that decision while you live in his home. If all you have been watching is Death Note and Bleach it is easy to see how he might think that way. Arguing with him won't help your case and may make it worse. If you show respect for his decision then later he will be more open to trying again with anime that you know wouldn't be offensive to his values. If you sneak around his back however you risk making his alienation of anime permanent by it's association to your actions.

    Now the key to that is "while you live in his home". When you go to college you can take Japanese for your language credit and join an anime club. Being home schooled that may come sooner rather then later. The people I knew who home schooled started college between 16-17 instead of 18. When were you planning on going?

    As Arrianna said, do as he says respectfully but it wouldnt hurt to ask why he doesnt want you to watch it. Theres no harm in asking if its just to see where he is comming from. If he says its just stupid then that in its self is a stupid respons and reason but again fallow your step dads wishes respectfully and as soon as you move out you can do as you wish.

    Forgive me for asking but, your white right?, if anyway case, I guess everybody has a right to learn what they like best. So pretty much that choice is yours to make my friend, if somebody wants to learn about japanese culture and it ain't their culture, then I would have to guess its nice to know another culture, but your father banning you from this? wow that is harsh. I don't think thats good parenting, so its your choice man. give it up, or continue learning something you want to know about.

    My step dad thinks that everyone sucks except for white people.
    I think this is probably why he doesn't want you to watch it. I bet he wouldn't like you watching a all black sitcom on TV either.

    And this is exactly why we can't have nice things.

    First of all, is he a religious man. I mean most religious people are brainwashed to believe that certain things are the works of the devil and many other nonsensical crap.

    Now thats harsh not to mention incorrect. All though I will agree that a lot are that way and are hypocrits to their faith but not most. It sounds like he is more of a racist then anthing else. Still not a good guy how ever. I can't stand racist!!

    I agree with Scourge and agree with Ketaro, am not taking sides in this subject, though am assuming if he is racist, and religious, don't that make him the devil?, this is like watching a version of 'The Waterboy', the mama is religious I think, and think everything is the devil, I was him I would ask why, it'll probably lead into a big arguments, but at least the debate team on the kid side will win LOL. But in my debate, based on the fathers actions. I say he is racist and just cares about HIS people, not others.
