A lot of us have probably struggled with helping our friends or family understand our love for anime, cosplay, and all related things.
My mom would NEVER get that kind of reference!!!
I mean, I've never had an issue with my parents disliking anime, though. They were cool about me cosplaying, going to anime conventions, doing anime dances, etc all through high school, and even now they're mildly interested in my cosplaying.
Do your parents "get" anime?
I would Love it so much if my parents ever made anime jokes lol. But alas!! It's not meant to be int his lifetime XD
