    Re: My dad hates anime!

    My parents don't like Anime, but they let me carry on my own hobbies. Now that I'm moved out and that Im an adult, they don't have much of a say in the matter.

    I say talk to your dad, or show him several examples from multiable genre's of anime, there's more out there then DNangel.

    Re: My dad hates anime!

    My family doesn't hate anime, but they're not enthusiasts of the thing either, except for my little brother. But one time, they did take interest when I was watching the English version of Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away, and that got them interested. They loved the movie. I guess there were two reasons why they gave it a try: 1) It was in English. I think subtitles make them lazy and lose interest and, 2) The movie's story is different from the usual theme of other anime. Currently, my sister is gradually taking interest in anime because of her workplace's influence, and Grave of the Fireflies, an anime movie, is her favorite movie.

    My parents don't excatly have a care with anime. They don't like me watching it, however they don't mind me watching it. Strange...
    Still my father seems to be more negative about it rather then my mother. My mother actually likes anime, so in a way, i guess i'm lucky enough.

    Yeah my mom thinks it's porn.....Every time I talk about it she freaks.
    If your dad thinks it's trash then start watching tons of American cartoons like South Park and see which on he'd perfer you exposing your mind to.
    That or just be more secret about it.

    Re: My dad hates anime!

    Maybe I'm going to be the bad news angel, but sometimes with things like this, you just have to roll with the punches. Your father seems like he is pretty conservative and pretty concerned about either A) your masculinity or B) your scholastic life and getting into a good college, succeeding in life, etc.

    If it is A, then you're probably boned, I hate to say. The chest beating game is a tough one to play.

    If he is worried about your long term success and is afraid that things you like to watch may be intellectually stunting, then try to make a bet with him, "If I do well this semester/quarter, then it will prove that anime didn't hurt my grades" etc.

    Re: My dad hates anime!

    My parents are very understanding of my love for anime, fortunately. They both think as long as what I like doesn't hurt me or anyone else that is fine. I mean it is my hobby and my life. Though, my dad does get really annoyed when I stay on the computer or watch TV for a long time. He thinks I should be working 24/7 and not being lazy. I agree to that to some extent because I admit that it is not good being really lazy but it is not good working yourself to death either which my dad basically does. He's a workaholic.
