My parents think that its a waste of time and I must focus on studies,....

 :cop: definetly focus on your studies!!! If you enter university you will have like endless time for manga!!!
...but that said a woman who endured sleepless nights by watching anime and reading manga in her high school days...

my parents were never concerned whit it, I separated my anime watching passion from school... they even let me have one wall in their room which was glued with posters of Sailor Moon characters... man painting the wall and getting of the glue was a pain once I grew up...  :sick:

This is why I just hide it the best I can. Their reactions can really put a dampener on things for me.

In my case, my parents couldn't care less, lol  :D
They never said anything about it since I started watching anime, reading mangas or drawing things related to this (they like the fact that I draw because they see it at something "productive"). I remember that their only complaints were related to the amount of money I used to spend buying mangas and artbooks. But since it was the money I got from my own job, they didn't complain much, only said that it would be better if I saved some. But I continued buying anyway xD
I remember that, once, my father accidentally saw some yaoi mangas that arrived by mail and one day both my parents saw a blog where I posted reviews of yaoi mangas, mostly, with images included (lol) and the only thing they said was "ooh, we saw your blog, it's nice", and I just wanted to break a hole in the wall and hide my face in there, haha, it was embarassing. My father even asked me someday, out of the blue: "do you still read hentai?" (for him, yaoi = hentai, lololol). It was funny.

The most interesting thing is that my research at the university is related to mangas and this way I could show them that mangas can even be an interesting study subject and I could prove the same to some of my teachers. I'm proud that I like this part of japanese culture and I don't hide it from anybody. Instead, I try to show them its importance and what they're missing  ;D

Ridiculed at every moment, especially by older siblings. But I have dreams and I want to chase them even if everyone makes fun of them IRL.

Before I found what I truly loved to do (drawing manga, of course!) I had a bit of an obsession with pleasing those around me with what I did. It only ended in sadness and constant frustration. What I learned from this was that a passion/hobby is something you should do to make yourself happy without concerning yourself with what those around you think. So, do what you love and follow those dreams! ^-^

Anyway, as for my family... It's a mix. Only one of my close family members actually likes anime/manga, but even a few of those who don't still respect/support my art. They don't support manga directly, but they support my art itself.  However, some of my family members are strongly against manga. They'll say my art is good, but I can tell they don't really support it.

My dad took a weird approach to it. He doesn't like the constant shouting, monologues or fan service, but he likes he creativity and action. My mum and sister think it's western cartoons. My grandparents seem to like the culture side of it. And my uncle became an addict after I showed him HOTD  8)

It's all a matter of being selective. Obviously something like School Days will get me sent to a mental hospital, but something mature like Black Lagoon appeals to his interests :D

No one would watch any anime I suggest. The problem is, I have an opinion. Once they understand that yes my common sense has advanced a bit so that I feel like having opinions, then I'll try to get them to understand my opinions. HahahaHAHAHAHAHA. *I am evil*

I showed my mother the first episode of Shingeki No Kyojin, not sure whether she liked it or not because she likes to be hard to read and friggin awkward by saying "ooh interesting" -_-, but im slowly pushing her to read death note XD. my father is someone who I know will never get it. He watches sport a lot and is VERY stereotypical.  Was watching despicable me 2 and he said "your almost 18 and your watching cartoons", and he wonders why I dont talk to him. My elder sister... im gonna assume she knows what anime is, but she watches Jersey Shore... do I need to say more?
