Okay, I split this from the Steam group topic because I felt it warranted its own thread (and was also very off-topic there). Also because I wanted to reply to it but didn't want to keep the Steam thread derailed. New subject, if it isn't clear, is how your anime/TV/gaming/whatever tastes mix with those you know, such as family and friends. It is in the spam section, though, so that tangents aren't problematic.
My parents dislike anime overall. My dad refuses to listen to or watch anything that is in a different language, even with subtitles. Dubs don't help, as he thinks the only thing the Japanese are good at is copying what the western world does, which includes plots. As for my mom, she's fine with dubbed stuff, but doesn't like the "squeaky, high pitched anime voices" in subs (for reference, she thinks the Steins;Gate anime's main ED is squeaky).
My sister is neutral. She liked Madoka a bit, and Steins;Gate a bit more.
EDIT: if someone has a better topic title, GIVE IT TO ME.
