    What momma and daddy don't know won't hurt them.

    My dad didn't mind that I started reading them but when I wanted to buy them it was a diffrent story. I had to buy them with my own money and after awhile he stopped letting me get them but I am sure that he will take me back soon enough. And when he does I will buy all my moneys worth .

    My parents don't give a darn about the manga I read, they let me read it no matter what the content is, or what the rating is.
    They let me purchase some off the internet when they no NOTHING about the content of the book, and my Dad even bought a volume of InuYasha that was rated Teen for my little sister, when she was six years old.
    The same goes for TV shows too, my sister and I have been allowed to watch things like Family Guy and South Park since I was nine, and she was four.

    Well, it's my money so I buy what I want.

    But in my brown family they don't know anything about manga. A book is a book to them. If it has words, it's worth reading.

    Cause in my family I have to become "a doctor or engineer"............yahh.

    It seems like my parents don't care what I but, I mean, my dad bought me Death Note because he heard it was good, and we both enjoy it. But he banned me from watching Shaman King when it premired, and almost didn't let me watch Yugioh because Yugi was 'possesed' o_o Sooo, whatever....(Maybe it was because I was younger?)

    I dunno what my parent's feelings on Negima would be. But I read it.

    My parents dont care that I read Manga but my dad has looked through my Manga out of curiosity and I'm glad I took my Naruto v.1 from him before he saw Naruto doing his Harem Jutsu x_x It's times like these that I'm glad my parents dont know how to read Manga.

    my dad doesnt care. He's from africa, and was an otaku when he was a kid, so when nostalgia calls, he borrows a shonen jump or a golgo 13. my mom is all like" Why don't you buy AMERICAN comics, like batman. the japanese got the idea from us. just like that wierd music you listen to (Is refering to J-rock)" and i just give her a stare that makes her know that i know that she doesn't know WHAT she's talking about. Eh, i buy em ith my own money anyway.

    You know, we don't have to argue... you could always shut up and accept my point of view as hard cold fact.

    Uh... my mom doesn't care that much, but sometimes she thinks I should spend my money on other stuff besides manga, even if I barely buy any... My dad thinks manga is kinda cool, but he doesn't care either. Basically, my parents could care less.

    My parents don't disapprove of manga. While my father doesn't really care for it as well as anime (he just isn't interested into animation and cartooning at all, with a few exceptions like Futurama and The Boondocks comic strip), my mother actually shows something of an interest in manga. In fact, she's going to read a one-shot tonight before going to sleep (the timing of me replying is rather ironic), so I'll see what she thinks in the morning.

    Interesting to note, though, I was able to get my aunt to read the first nine volumes of Berserk, and the first volume of Eden: It's an Endless World!, in that order. She enjoyed both, surprisingly enough.

    No offence, but I'd have to side with your mother on that one. I mean, we can't put aside manga for family now? Seriously?

    Uh, no, there isn't a difference. Manga are essentially Japanese comics. Deal.

    Hey, give her credit, she's not that far off.

    My parents do not really care about my manga, but whenever I say that I want to live my life like any certian character of a manga then my mother begins to hate manga.

    My parents took my anime and manga away for a month once, lol. They HATE it. They think I'm wasting my life on it. xD Of course, I'm grown now, and I can do what I want. I may be wasting my life on the stuff, but I'm not exactly throwing my life away either. I know where my priorities lie. I just spend all my at home free time reading manga (and playing online). Is that so wrong?!

    *Note that at home free time doesn't include hang out with friends time, lol*

    My father never cared about my anime/manga hobby at all.

    My mother, however, has always had a problem with it. Because I'm a girl, she feels that comics are not suitable for me. Plus, she thinks I'm too old for them... Yeah, she considers them 'cartoons'. Though, this one time, she freaked out at me watching this one Hellsing episode because of all the blood. XD;; I guess it also doesn't help that she's religious.

    It's all moot nowadays, since I'm over eighteen and on my own.

    My mother is the parent that has the most problems with it out of the two. Once, while we were driving downtown (to Borders, in fact) she suddenly began a lecture on how she fears manga/anime is affecting my life, and how it is "innapropriate."

    Although I have explained to her on numerous occasions how manga/anime is different than cartoons/comics, she still complains at times.

    In the end, she's fine with it, though. At times, she has even expressed mild curiousity (in a positive way.) My dad, however, is confused by the format.

    Ah, what naive parents. =3

Not really flipping through them, but sometimes she reads the back cover. Now, my mom had never had any problems with buying me manga based on ratings. They could be T+, or M, she wouldn't have a problem with it. But that day, she happened to notice the Explicit Content label on the cover of one volume, and asked me to put it back. In the end, I did get it because I basically began explaining to her about the volume in line, and how the content wasn't really THAT explicit. XP

    A few times, my mom has sworn to stop buying me manga because she doesn't consider them "books," but I found that this is a vague threat and never happens.

    She has also given me a few speeches on the mature nature of manga, and how she worries it affects me. XD But this is probably common.

    Anyways, what do your parents think of manga?


    lol.... I just gett them @ The public libray. They think there to easy for me since there not really Books.

    I can't bear to get them at the library. I have this part of me that says: "YOU MUST BUY THEM OR DIE," and I go by that. I also do not like waiting for the volumes that I need to come in so that I may check them out.

    My library doesn't have that large of a collection, so I find it easier to purchase the series I need.

    I think they are glad I actually spend my money on something other then art commissions, so they don't really complain if I do buy manga.

    Though, when I was watching DBZ before, my dad thought Cell's nose was a carrot. So yeah |D I keep my parents far from the anime genre. They aren't too interested in my manga or anime that much anyway, it's too "childish" for them.

    About that, my parents could care less, and I like it better that way. And plus they don't really understand English much which really turns them off, now if these manga was in Spanish, they probably noticed. But as of now, they don't give a crap.

    I don't live with my parents atm, but when I did, and mentioned manga, they'd kind of... get a funny kind of look on their faces like they didn't know what I was talking about. My dad enjoys some anime (mostly DBZ... haha) but is mostly clueless when it comes to manga.

    As a parent, I don't get too uptight about anime as long as it's age appropriate for my son. I appreciate the art form because some of it is spectacular. Some of it is too violent and "out there" for my personal tastes, but I'm sure my parents felt the same about what I was into when I was in my tweens and teens.
    I'll take a shipment of Skarin, thank you very much. *snicker*

    My dad thinks it's art, and says it's fine as long as it's not hentai, [I went, 'WTF, he knows about hentai?']. I guess he did some research. XD He thinks it's an interesting culture, but never questions me about it.

    My mom. She hates it with all her will. She thinks it's porn central and every time I even dare to mention it she groans/makes nasty faces. It's just so unfair. I can't go with my mom to buy manga... because I either end up really p*ssed/crying, or she ends up really annoyed making nasty comments about the store or the manga itself.
