Today I was ordering a wig for cosplay, and mom ended up picking out a wig for herself because the "thought it would be fun to wear it out sometimes". It was just a simple brown bob-style wig, but I think mom might be a closet cosplayer.

So, do any of you guys have any experiences to share of sharing anime with your parents or other family members? do hey like it at all or is it more "you watching yer chinese girl cartoons again son?"
I've shown my mom every miyazaki movie and lots of other anime films, she's a pretty big fan. On the other hand, my dad is all "miyazaki? I thought we bombed that place"
My one older brother used to be a DBZ fan, now the only anime he can stomach is Akira.

my dad likes some anime. he was really into cowboy bebop for a while… and inuyasha. haha. he's picky about what he'll watch. I think he watched fma: brotherhood and some action drama about rebel pilots that I can't remember the name of.

he didn't like evangelion, probably too much awkward youth fanservice and shit. he has decent taste, pretty respectable

Oh yeah, I was showing my mom cowboy bebop for a while but we never got very far, The early episodes are a bit weird for her, I wanted to get her to the stuff about Faye's back story. That episode where she finds the tape of herself as a kid and she says "I can't remember"…strong stuff.
Mom showed interest in seeing Madoka, but with the movies coming out so soon, I'll probably just show her those. Although I heard there will be more blood and yuri subtext in the movies…she might prefer the original version afterall

Oh, and I have my 5 year old niece obsessed with Miyazaki movies. I'm trying to find some shows to show her, but anything I can think of that's appropriate is either too old to find a lot of episodes (Like hamtaro) or it's not dubbed (Like polar bear cafe). Someone suggested I show her K-on, sounds good to me, she loves anything with characters that are musicians or idols, she loves miku. Besides for some bathing suit and maid costume fanservice, there's nothing really that bad, and to her i would just be "YAY THEY'RE AT A BEACH!" and "haha she fell and I saw her undies!" so, I'll have to get that to show her.

my parents are pretty split on the topic of me enjoying anime and the likes

like growing up my dad told me that pokemon served satan and that they're evil and shit like that and is basically on the "japan and korea are the same place right?" level, but my mom was importing miyazaki merch for me when i was little because she loved the films so much.

she'll still sit down with me and watch whatever i happen to be watching with me on the occasion or ask what i'm reading etc. sometimes we still make connections between miyazaki films and real life together (oooh, it's windy out! maybe totoro is around things like that)

my parents are pretty big fans of ghibli movies. my mom likes kiki's delivery service and spirited away the best, and my dad's favorite is porco rosso.

i had them watch death note a couple years ago while i was watching it and they really liked it, but i think that's about all the anime i like that they'd really enjoy.

i used to try and show them a little of whatever i was watching, and they tolerated it. they like scifi things so they didn't seem to get into ouran and naruto as much as i did. when i was going through soul eater on netflix they didn't mind sitting through a few episodes.

i think they might have watched ghost in the shell a couple times and of course stuff like speed racer and the older ones from when they were younger.

i'm in a pretty big one piece kick right now, and that's just way too much anime for their attention spans which is a huge shame because i love it so much and i'd like to be able to talk pirates with them but whatevs

Our parents sound cool ;A;
Oh wow, I totally forgot but I showed my mom the Death Note movies whenever came out and she really liked them. She will also watch pretty much any anime movie, as long as it's dubbed. I think she's sat through a subbed one or two anyway, haha. I hyped up Madoka to sound like the best thing ever so she agreed to watch the movies when they come out on DVD. I'll be watching them first with my boyfriend, and I'll judge if the show or movies would be better for mom. The length would be the same anyway. I hear the movies are more streamlined and better animated, but I also heard there will be more yuri subtext…not sure if that would scare mom off.

Speaking of my boyfriend, I converted him to anime. Before me he only saw a little of Lupin III, DBZ, and I think Trigun. I started off showing him Miyazaki movies and stuff like Summer Wars and The Girl who Leapt Through Time. Then the training wheels came off and I made him watch Akira. As far as shows, we watched Madoka (it was my 3rd time seeing the series at that point, haha), Full Metal Alchemist, and We're working on Jojo's bizarre adventure right now. And apparently he started Soul Eater of his own accord, I'm so proud of him <3

You don't even see a drop of blood with Mami, it's just tragic. I love it when a show can get me so emotionally invested, even if it ends up making me sad. I dunno, I just think it's a very beautiful show.

SO my great grandpa watched anime with me. As a kid I would try to get my family to watch, bur only my great grandpa would really take to it whatsoever. Inu-Yasha and Cowboy Bebop is what he enjoyed.

It didn't go too well… the only thing she said is 'Too much screams of those loli-ish girls; annoying'.

My dad, well, he was more of that Dragonball/DBZ fan, but that's all he really knew, aside from the Miyazaki films. But then again we all grew up on those. But since he's getting older his memory is starting to fade… and now he's all like "Anime? What is that again? Animation from China/Korea/Japan?"

My love for anime started with Pokemon when I was a kid. Both my parents were weirded out
by Japanimation, and my dad got really upset when I watch any anime besides Pokemon. (He thought it was too much Japanese stuff, I guess.) I also became a junior weeaboo at around that time, asking if I could learn Japanese or if our family could take a vacation to Japan. That was when my dad got really upset and told me things like "We bombed them in WWII, they've always hated us, and we hate them still." So I dropped the subject with him.
My mom still knew about my interest for a few years after that. She didn't understand it, but she bought me a few manga. For my birthday one year she bought me a Shojo Beat and a Shonen Jump (just one issue of each). I used to reread them all the time.

I watched all of NGE + End of Evangelion with my dad not too long ago. Much to my delight, he found it very interesting; in fact, he was often the one who suggested that we watch a few episodes whenever we were both free. I plan to show him the Rebuild movies next time I visit home, as I'm curious to see what he thinks of the so-called "remastering" of the series.

Something like Yukikaze or the like? Anime actually used to air on american sci-fi channels. Of course, Im too young to remember it myself.

Soooo my parents.
I haven't a single memory of my dad but from everything I have heard, him being heavily involved in science and art, probably would have taken a liking to it.

My mother is a recovering crack addict but that shouldnt say much about her taste in anime. Its just that she and I grew apart and because of her problems she is seriously stuck in the past to ten years ago when she was still sober raising us. She liked all the adult swim anime back then, and I have to say I commend her for sharing the same disliking for One Piece that I do, no offense 1P fans (But im sure you guys already know different strokes for different folks).

But now, if ever she can sit still when shes not cleaning every orifice of her room with a q tip looking for copper screens, pipes, and crack, she is never receptive. The one time we did actually get together and tune into an anime we were watching an eva movie and she said "I dont remember this… must be a new episode of Inu-Yasha."

Normally, I would have said "not really" in the context of this thread, but over the last month or so, my parents seem to be taking a bit more of an interest in this kind of thing. Dad's been randomly asking me questions about Japan and culture and he's been cooking Japanese food more often (sukiyaki <3) and mom's been asking questions about anime (so that yellow one, she's Mami, right? Why's she your favorite Madoka?) and stuff. We just watched Up on Poppy Hill last night, she really enjoyed it~ And over christmas break, we watched Wolf Children and Night on the Galactic Railway together. Ah, and she's getting really interested in the music that I like, too! Mostly Hachi.

I think for a while there, there was some concern (mostly from mom) that I was trying too hard to escape into a fantasy world with anime, that it made me too different from others, or I was using it to become different on purpose, or some crap. I think that finally, at the age of 20, they understand that I am who I am, and anime has nothing to do with it. It's just stuff that I like, and it doesn't define my personality, and there's no harm in it. I mean yeah I'm probably an ultra weeb lord, but if it wasn't anime (and to a lesser degree, Japan) I'd just be obsessed with something else. I'll wax poetic about how meaningful Miyazaki films and Hachi music is to me, but I think they understand now that I'm not at the point where anime is my reason for living or ~I wish to become Japanese~ or any crap like that.

I think mom really "gets" cosplay more now too, she adores my Mami cosplay. I think she's eager now to help me make more, haha. Then again, her favorite thing when I was little was dressing me up in pretty clothes…supporting my cosplay hobby is probably her way to relive her glory days, haha. Her favorite part of the Mami cosplay was seeing me blonde again after over a decade…

Mom and I went to the first showing of The Wind Rises on opening day.
The movie was beautiful and we had a great time together. Once the credits started to roll we both realized that it was the last time we'd get to see a Miyazaki movie for the first time in theaters together, and we both started sobbing and hugging in the middle of the theater. DORK ALERT.

I think we can understand and relate to eachother the best when we're watching a Studio Ghibli film. We were arguing all week about stupid stuff but then BOOM, Miyazaki comes along and we share a beautiful moment with eachother.

Afterwards she used her mom-charisma to talk to the theater manager. She got him to put down my name and phone number and apparently they're gonna set aside the poster and A MARQUEE for me when the movie's run ends (which unfortunately, they told us will likely be in under a month.)

As someone else said, my mom sounds like a figment of my imagination sometimes. We have normal mother-daughter fights and she's not always this awesome and she's gotten mad at me for being too obsessed with anime in the past. But even she would defend Miyazaki films to the death. Well, she's not a big fan of Nausicaa, Mononoke, or Porco Rosso.

Anyway we both decided that we're gonna assassinate everyone at Disney if Frozen gets the academy award instead of The Wind Rises tonight. She went off on a little rant about it and she hasn't even seen Frozen. She said someting along the lines of "If Frozen wins the award I'll never watch it." She's pissed that they didn't advertise for Wind Rises more, that the theater only had 10 people besides for us, and that only 1 of the 3 theaters in town was playing it. I'm used to anime getting the shaft like that and I keep saying "it can't be helped" BUT SHE ACTUALLY CALLED THE ONE THEATER TO ASK WHY THEY WEREN'T PLAYING IT AND TOLD THEM HOW DISAPPOINTED SHE WAS.

My mom wants me to get her into anime out of boredom and interest. I wanna tell you all how that fares, and given this story from over a decade ago you might guess it will be wierd as hell.

So it all started when my sister went gothic and joined the anime club. Inu Yasha was only up to like, 60 episodes. My sister was absolutely obsessed. She would quite literally look out her window and say good morning and goodnight to all the characters. Insufferable pajama-talk during sleepovers was often about how "hot" sesshoumaru was. Still, I ended up liking one of her friends and she showed me a lot of anime because as she put it, she seemed interested in some shows but more in the social aspect of being a weaboo rather than just liking animation and japanese culture (I used to animate and really did have a curiosity). So, my mom, who likes to contravene the rules of friendship building between me and "soon-to-be daughters", built up a little japanese-themed party where we would all sit on tatamis, get served home made japanese food bought at Odou's (awesome place btw, thats where I got all my anime dvd's), and all that. However, Mom was doing this also out of sorrow because her relapse caused her to spend less time with us and she ended up pulling this all together while on crack. Im not joking when I say that while she did a fantastic job at helping us and actually understanding what we wanted, she ended up killing and cooking some of our own goldfish for miso. Now almost a decade later she wants to get back into anime and maybe do that party right. Truly one badass bittersweet mom, eh?
