all my friends hate anime because they think only geeks with no lives watch it.whyi seceretly watch it ocassionally because i dont want them to know i like it.though what they say is kinda of true all the people we know who like it are loners or weird people who are in some fantasy world.is this stereotype true because ive seen like 20 people in high school and all in college and there all weird or loners and geeks.sometimes i am sad to like anime iknow all anime watchers are that as the stereotype but most are.i only like anime because when i was young i watched dbz and i really enjoyed and i just stucked with anime.

im not saying anime is weird but some of the people who watch it there antisocial or have a hard time fitting in

My one friend watches anime and he has a 6-pack, does judo, and has had 3 gf's in the duration that I knew him. So no, but some yes can be weird. Theirs a difference between someone who likes anime and a fanboy though. What your speaking of sounds more like a fanboy. Someone who's obsessed with something.

I'm pretty sociable so I don't fit the category of being a loner. I'm definitely not a geek either, espescially if you saw my grades lol. Actually if u knew me I don't even look like a geek nore a person who watches anime even though I watch it a lot.

I would say I'm pretty weird but I'm no loner who spends all their time not knowing the difference between anime and reality. Though I do classify myself as a nerd cause I love anime but I have friends, I go to school, and I'm currently President of the Theatre club. DO I sound like a no life loser? Nah. But I guess I'm just not your typical stereotype anything. I know some people who love anime but are very anti-social and who try to hard to be an anime character, which makes it awkward. People like that bug me because they give a bad rep to all people who like anime. ANYWAYS I think I'm very weird, I do stupid thing and have fun and say weird things. Though all of that doesn't have anything to do with anime. Anime itself can be weird which it probably a main reason I watch it, is because it's weird like me.

What a pointless post. Who cares what others think about it, or you for liking it? I know the phrase gets thrown around a lot, but is't all that matters how you feel about it? And it's not even really something to bother hiding. Unless you're hiding Miku body pillows in your closet, you don't really have anything to be ashamed of.

The very fact that you like anime defeats that stereotype. That much should be obvious. There are people who take things to extremes in every hobby or interest however. They let their whole lives be defined by their interest or hobby. They make for very boring, one-dimensional personalities. Consequently, it can appear that any interest or hobby is dominated by such people precisely because that is all they can talk about. People who like anime but also have many other interests do not stand out as being anime fans because that is not what defines them. I know for one that I love anime a lot but that's not what defines me as a person. You wouldn't be able to brand me as one either unless you'd ask me or saw me at a convention or something.

I don't even know why I bothered answering to this post. It seems unnecessary and provocative in nature to ask such a question on a site dedicated to streaming anime. I'm starting to think you're just a troll.

Probably about 90% of people who watch anime are introverted, are NEETs, or just don't leave their room. It really doesn't matter what others say about it; it's their business. The society's interpretation of what people who watch anime are has been made a stereotype because of the majority (and especially weaboos). Those who think without knowing for sure don't have the right to label anime fans as weird, creepy, perverted. Don't mind your friends. If they can't accept you for who you are, they aren't real friends.

Rofl, maybe, just maybe, it's because it sucks.
