Basicalllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy,
My sister didnt give a darn about it till she saw L from death note, now she likes it.
My mom doesnt really know, but she does know that I draw and that I wanna go to Japan, and she's  supportive of that.
My dad doesn't really care, though one time he read volume one of Fullmetal alchemist. But I think it was to see if there was any stuff like sex in it.

Well, i could care less for their reaction. I dont really care what anyone thinks of my relation with manga. (unless its for critique)

None of the poll answers are applicable to me XD

My mom's fine with it as long as I'll be the one to pay for all my manga expenses. At the same time, I also have to contribute to the monthly expenses of our household.

My mother thinks its strange and doesn't understand why I'm not obsessed with other countries and art forms as much as I am with manga and Japan.
My dad thinks its awesome and that some how I'll become a world leader through it.
My sisters really don't get it but don't care.

No one really cares about for me. They think it looks cool that's about it. Nothing big though. Besides I care less about what they think of my interests.
I hate you ^_^

It's been repeatedly said to me that the One Piece volumes are a rip-off. Quite frankly, I don't think they understand how much better it is than reading online, but other than that, no one really gives a damn.

i prefer reading a book than to online. its a shame as online is free and books cost money, but as long as i have money that isnt really a major problem.

My parents are a little weird (laughs)...
My mom reads every single manga I buy with enthusiasm and says it's cool, and just loves my drawings and likes to show off to the other moms. Up till now, pretty normal. But when she sees me reading manga / watching anime on the internet she starts ranting about how anime characters are crazy and violent and goes all "omfg wtf are you watching eww horrible!" on me, as if I were watching something extremely violent and pervy... WTF mom? -.-
My dad isn't much like that, he doesn't really care, he just wants to watch his sci-fi movies (laughs). I hate sci-fi thanks to him... try listening to tiring hours of sci-fi rants before you judge me.
It doesn't matter how horribly painful it is, tomorrow it'll be just a memory.

My sister was the one who introduced me to anime, she's more of an anime fan, though she does read manga sometimes, my mom sometimes thinks its a waste of time and my dad doesn't care..
thing is i read manga online and my mom thinks i spend wayyyyyy too much time on the internet

Regarding my drawings, my sister's really supportive and i usually keep my drawings to myself... though my mom and friends occasionally make remarks like, "thats pretty" or "what IS that?"
 thats about it... on the whole, i guess they are pretty supportive=)
