What anime would you show your parents?
>>
I want to watch DtB with my dad

but neither of us ever have the time
>>
Usagi Drop maybe.
>>
My dad was into 90's anime but he stopped right around when NGE aired so I'd have him watch that.
>>
Planetes

On a side note, has anyone actually watched anime with their parents, I know it happens.
I watched the Berserk movies with my very christian mother. It wasn't weird, actually
>>
They wouldn't want to watch anything with you OP because you were too shit to think of something yourself and instead made a rec thread
>>
>>100648363
I showed You Are Umasou to my dad and his kids from another mother, they were like 2 and 3.
They all loved it.
>>
Kodomo no Jikan
>>
Master of Martial Hearts
>>
Why would I want to show anime to your parents?
>>
>>100648668

>>100648522 here

I did watch Code Geass with my dad though
>>
>control f

>boku no pico"

>zero results

/a/ you disappoint me.
>>
Kodomo no Omocha
>>
Bible black.
>>
I watched Dirty Pair with my grandma
>>
I watched Lain with my mother back in the late 90s
>>
My mum saw me watching Nichijou so I transferred the DESS release to her laptop and installed KCP. She said it was cute.
>>
>>100648668
Other than the obvious stuff like Ghibli, I watched Kino's Journey with my parents and I watched Monster with my mom.
>>
Berserk. Manga would be better
>>
If my parents want anime recommendations they can piss off and Google it like the rest.
>>
>>100649299
How was monster with family?

Boku no Pico
>>
Have watched death note with Dad (He loves it)
Have watched Ergo Proxy with mum and dad as they're both sci fi geeks.
Would watch Sengoku Basara (sp?) with mum as she love samurai warror/dynasty warrior games and has played the SB game.
Would show dad GiTS and Evangelion.
>>
>>100649430
My mom liked it. She didn't fall in love with it like she did with The Wire, but she's looking forward to the HBO adaptation.
>>
>>100649417
This.
>>
>>100648795
I don't understand this either.
>>
my dad watched dubbed green-green on tv
I am not even joking
>>
My dad thoroughly enjoyed Yuru Yuri.
Said it taught him a lot about Japanese culture.
I dunno, Kaiji? It's really moe right?
>>

>"Gee, anon, you spend so much time down here in the basement watching those cartoons. Maybe I should try some to see what the big deal is. What would you recommend?"
>"G-Go away, Mom! If you want anime recs, google it yourself! Can't you see I'm busy fitting in on /a/!"
>>
>>100649441
HAHA. I love the Boku no Pico mem! I saw it on Facebook, so I had to come to this cool and edgy place to experience the hilarity first-hand.
>>
I showed TTGL to my mom recently.

She had fun.

If I was forced to pick one anime to sit down and watch with my parents, I'd choose Usagi Drop.

My dad and I watched Ruroni Kenshin, Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, FMA, DBZ, and Pokemon together when I was a kid shit on Toonami. Last year we watched Ixion Saga together when I was visiting him for his birthday. Apart from that he doesn't really watch anime, though he still watches Boomerang for Johnny Bravo and Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Dad is pretty bro-tier though, we still play MMO's together, ever since Runescape and Diablo II.
>>
>>100649588
Boku no pIco seems like a genuinely good pick, would help my parents understand me a lot better
>>
>>100649564
>>100649588
the amount of same-faggotry and attempting to fit in is uncanny.
>>
>dad
Probably something with good action. He'd rather watch something flashy, if all the times I've watched movies with him is any indication.

>mom
Huh. Kaiba, maybe.
>>
>>100649656
Why!?
>>
>>100649656
Watched it with my mom, she, we, cried. Also watched Kimi no Todoke with my mom.
>>
>>100648363
Aku no Rotoscope
Wake Up Girls
Monogatari

Hey
That's cool bro

What's your favourite anime?
>>
>>100649690
My dad and I bro'd the fuck out of Redline.
>>
>>100649656
Make sure read the manga with them too.
>>
>>100649730
Because the anime is a pretty heartwarming story about a guy coming to terms with being a parent, and Rin is cute.

The anime feels like it would appeal to a fairly mainstream audience and could be easily transplanted to a live-action setting. In fact, it has been.

Of course, I'm saying the anime. Not the manga, obviously.

My dad loves Gundam and LoGH, anything space-age with large ships and robots really. He's a big fan of Star Trek and Star Wars.
>>
Mom liked Madoka, but there aren't many good anime subbed in my language.

Buzzwords like 'blog' are getting thrown out on /a/ and aren't even close to what an actual blogpost looks like, stop trying to fit in please.
>>
>>100648363
It's better for me to just hide my power level from them, I don't think they'd get that much enjoyment out of anime, and I'm not one to really press my hobbies on them.

I watched Ichigo Mashimaro, Full Metal Panic, My-Hime, Darker than Black, Kino's Journey, Haruhi and some movies with my mom and she more and less liked them all.

Then she suddenly went full /a/non and dropped everything I've since recommended after episode or two. I guess good taste is just something you have to be born with.

Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen probably. Nothing they'd find questionable (fanservice, moe, traps), a good story, and short. Mushi-shi would also be up there.
