i think after my exams and the summer vaccation i'm gonna embrace being an otaku...
currently i'm in the closet when it comes to manga/anime i don't talk about it much with my friends/family and that still will be the case...  cos theres is no point talking to people who don't get it....   but i'm gonna hang posters on my wall and stuff... lol

My dad actually said, "Don't do it! It poisons your mind!" He just doesn't understand...
My mom buys my manga for me. Once she flipped through it to make sure that there wasn't any sex, which is her only restrction. She thinks that I read and draw too much manga, though.
My younger sister got interested when she saw me obsessing over this phenomenon called manga, and she started, too. She's too embarassed to show me any of her stuff, though..
My brother occasionally teases my sister and I about manga, particuarly about Higurashi (we both like it). He does read D.N.Angel when it comes out and used to read Gakuen Alice with me.
My other sister likes the pictures, but she is so illiterate that she doesn't even like reading the little dialouge there is.
My brother mimics my dad. Whenever he sees me watching anime on the computer, he says, "Get offa the manga-TV!".
The only one who will listen to me when I talk is my manga-loving sister...

My sisters don't know much about ti at all so they leave me alone, though one of them read manhwa cause of Korean romances... My parents are quite odd though, my father doesn't know what they are really, he just thinks cartoonish type books, my mom does though, no idea why, she just does.

On a sidenote, a laughed when a cook from another restaurant was over last night and saw my volume of Shin-Chan, he said he was dirty and bad, by the way I'm Chinese and have no idea how they know about Japanese manga. :huh:

Yay! My mom looked at my doodles and said she was suprised. Apparently she didn't know that I was doing more than just slacking off online.  XD

That's sad  :'(
When I think about it, if I didn't have anyone to talk or share manga with, I'd either die of lonliness or have to be put in a straitjacket.

Meh, I've had nobody to talk about manga with for two years when I first moved to this town, it was pretty depressing of course, since I had nobody around period and manga was my life, even now I place manga on the top of the list for reasons I live, extreme? Maybe to you.

Nah, not too much. My natural high is manga. I tried not doing manga for a few days. Not only did I subconsiously draw it, but there were fingernail marks on the wall.

well in my family:
my brother just don't care about it it's like "meh" (count as support?)
my mother just compliment me when i'm drawing though she doesn't understand
as for my father... well he's my inspirator (spell right?) of drawing.....
i admire him pretty much.... he can draw anything include manga i remember him drawing so cool (well as long as there's a copy for him to draw)
he support me very well... helping me drawing (means critique). he also told me to go to design major but animation one though until now i don;t know if thats what i want......

i dont know if "meh" counts as support. just apathy. and you did spell inspirator. the forum just doesnt recognize it as a word.  but it sounds like you've got a good father if he likes to help you with your artwork
