So I asked this a few years ago when I sort of introduced my brother to anime and my mom didn't like that. My brother was 14 at the time and I realized my actions were wrong and tried to stop that. It has been difficult to entirely avoid encouraging my brother to disobey her, but overall I've tried not to encourage it. Eventually he did begin watching anime on his own. I never told our mother about that, but I did here and there tell him he should be honest with her. I haven't been perfect about it and at times I felt like I was walking a fine line at best and crossing it a little at worst. He's 18 now. In the past months I have been talking to him about anime. We have similar interests. We've watched two or three anime series together. It's hard not to. And the sphere of stuff our mother does approve of...she's kinda on the extreme end of things. Like wouldn't go to watch The Lego Movie because of one tiny thing. Am I wrong for this? I've asked some friends and they don't think it is wrong, because my brother is old enough to make those kind of decisions on his own. But I still wonder. When I began watching anime, I was 19. When my mother had issues with it we did have a talk about my not being accountable to her anymore and agreed on that. I've tried to get my brother to do the same thing, but doesn't seem like he's going to.
