Hentai And My Father

God bless my father, and God bless eBay. Recently I stumbled onto some Sailor Moon laser discs that I did not own. I’m a huge fan of laser discs, and an even bigger fan of Sailor Moon. I forgot I put them on watching, but my dad noticed them and actually won some of them for me. He then went to see what other anime LDs this person had, and started bidding on all of them. I didn’t notice until he said something to me this morning.

Dad: Hey, have you heard of ‘La Blue Girl’?
Me: What.
Dad: The person who had those Sailor Moon discs also had other anime shows, so I bid on them. We got some neat ones. I know you like Tenchi Muyo, and I got you something called Card Captor Sakura. But I’ve never heard of this La Blue Girl.
Me: Well, uhm, La Blue Girl is an anime porn.
Dad: What.
Me: Yea. It’s called ‘hentai’. It’s animated porn.
Dad: People watch animated porn.
Me: Yes. They do.
Dad: … So do you still want the LD? I’m not gonna watch it but you know if you don’t want it.
Me: It’s fine. I’ll give it to someone.
Dad: Do you know anyone else who owns a laser disc player?
Me: … Nope.

I have to give props to my dad. He really does love my sister and I, and since he was raised in the sci-fi culture, he doesn’t bat an eye to the weird shit we like. He is also one of the few non anime fans I’ve ever met who doesn’t equate anime with being nothing but porn. To him all anime begins and ends with Sailor Moon, since my sister and I were (are) hardcore Sailor Moon fans. Of course, the conversation didn’t end there.

Dad: Do these people know these are in Japanese?
Me: I guess not.
Dad: Does anyone else besides you speak Japanese?
Mom: *from the other room* I bet people in Japan know Japanese!

No one else said anything the rest of the morning.
