Anime:

 

They don't even know I watch anime.

 

Manga:

 

Mom: I'm very disappointed in you when I discovered that you were reading comic books (she doesn't make the difference). It is very bad for you. It breakes my heart

[...]

So you will return them to your friend and tell her that you don't want to borrow any more.

 

Me: Okay...

Me (to myself): *sigh*, I'm just going to read them online then.

I don't think my family likes it but I still do it anyway because it makes me happy.  :chibiusa:

 

My family is just the same. My grandma and aunt think, I'm a child even if I only speak of anime or manga.

I live in a house where they just don't get it. Then again they are my grandparents who are stuck in the 80's mindset when it comes to entertainment.

 

Though my mom and step-dad are into it.

That's cool your mom and stepdad her into it.  :chibiusa:
