    My mom won't buy it for me, she says it's too expensive, but she doesn't really care what I read.

    My parents pretty much don't care. They're perfectly fine with me reading them. Though a few weeks ago I was in Books-a-Million with my mom and sister. I grabbed a few manga volumes and went off to find my sister who was on the romance isle. We chatted for a bit before I turned around and saw at least eight shelves full of nothing but yaoi and shounen-ai. I laughed out loud for a few seconds before explaining it to my her. Then of course she made me tell my mom and I ended up laughing at their looks of horror for the rest of the night. Of course I still refuse to let my mom see any of my Lupin III volumes for the sheer amount of nudity.

    I really should go back sometime and raid that isle.

    They let me buy my mangas, but i don't think they like them.
    This is the future we made for ourselves
    But is it really the dream we wanted to live in?

    The present has to be treated as precious
    Or we will regret it when it has become the past...

    You are a brave, brave soul.

    If I had ever been presented with the option of actually informing my parents of the definition of shounen-ai/yaoi, not only would my manga be confiscated, but I wouldn't be able to purchase them anymore. Every time I visit Borders and want shounen-ai/yaoi, I have to keep my mother distracted so that she doesn't glance down at the volume. Not only would my parents be horrified, but they'd never trust me with any volume of manga unless they glanced through it first.

    It's a fight to stay alive every day.

    My parents don't like me buying manga, they think it's too expensive for "just comics", but I don't care - I get more whenever I can!

    My mother does like some anime, but I don't think she can appreciate manga.

    My dad doesn't care about them. He thinks they're "childish and boring". He flipped through a few pages of FMA.

    On the other hand, my mom reads most of the stuff I read. Stuff like SGT Frog, FMA, and Naruto.

    She really likes FMA.

    they don't really say like the typical, "OMG leik thiz ztuffz iz for t3h kiddiez!" they just buy me it, well most of the time i buy it, or i pick it out, the latest was when we went to our nearest Barnes & Nobles and i picked out the first 2 volumes of Naruto, my mom was with me at the time, she already knows that i watch the Anime although i'm not sure that she acctually knows that it's called an "Anime" she just calls it a T.V. show, same with pokemon but anyway, she picked it up and in a sort of questioning tone, she said, "Naruto?" (in spanish and on top of that she mispronounses it, she pronounses it like this, Nar-00-To) and my dad don't care but then again as long as it's not porn or something like that he's gennerally ok with it, not a total fan of it, but just ok with it, he can live with me reading it and watching it, but yeah, as long as it's not like fillid with nudity, or exssesive swearing it's ok with them
    Stuff.

    My mum has no problems with manga or anime. She'll occasionally buy me a volume I need, and she'll sit and watch NGE when I'm watching it.

    My parents could care less. My mom or grandma is willing to buy baisically any manga. My dad actually watches some with me. I thought when I first got into it my mom (who is usually very protective about what I see) was going to not let me get some of the series, but she didn't care. I remember picking out Sensual Phrase and I thoguht she was instantly going to say put that back but she looked at the back and saw that it was rated M and didn't care. Same thing with NANA and Butterflies, Flowers. My Dad could care less about the content. I watched Strawberry (Ichigo) 100%, Ai Yori Aoshi, and Chobits with him and he didn't care. He even read the Chobits manga ans skimmed through the Ai Yori Aoshi manga (including the 17th volume). So baisically, they let me spend as much money as I want on it (just as long as it's not an outrageous amount like $100) and don't care what it is.

    Sounds like typical closed minded adults... Anime is here to stay and Japan doesn't have a stupid crap at all, just because you don't like or understand it, doesn't mean it is stupid. I really can't stand some of the older generations, since they seem to be more anti-anime than the younger people who grew up with it.

    As for me, my parents don;t really understand it that much and think it's perfectly fine for me to watch or read when I was younger, though I'm 23 now and won;t matter now what they say I'm slowly getting my step-dad into anime and he seems to like Trigun and my mom seems to like Hell Girl, what a combo.
