Erm. Not true. I know tons of anime fans who I'd consider perfectly normal including myself.

On average, most anime fans are indeed autist neckbeards; social rejects and the lot, the kind of audience anime seems to attract. I would not have it anyother way, however.

I think a really weird thing about me is that I can talk about anything with a person if they're asian, but time comes when they are not I have nothing to say. I truthfully think it's the whole anime/culture thing, I've never met a white/black etc person who was that into anime except online.

No way.
Most anime fans I know are adequately shy to the point I couldn't freely glomp at them, though. Shame.

Opposite for me. I have a lot of Asian friends, but most aren't into anime.

@OP: I used to be that kind of person until after a couple years of college...but who cares if your friends think you're a weirdo for watching anime. If you know it's true that you're not a weirdo, then don't let what they think bother you.

I disagree. I would daresay that most anime fans are "normal" (whatever normal entails in your environment) and the few "weirdos" in the world of anime fans have become so ubiquitous that people tend to believe the stereotype of Anime Fan = super weirdo, completely ignoring that fact that everyone is unique and that even among anime fans, a lot of people are quite "normal".

I've seen other anime fans and they were all weird. They were very... awkward.

That doesn't make you a loner. Being a loner is a life choice, not a consolation prize. If you have desperation in your heart, and longing in veins, then you can't be a loner. If you have the desire to hold within your grip the essence of friendship, and to never let slip those bonds once taken hold, then you are not a loner. Having no friends who share your interests does not make you a loner; not wanting any does. So I say - if you want friends - fill up your lungs with the will to lash out against the unfairness of time and fate; take luck and prosper; scream out the song of desperation which is inherent within all men and in all women; and wait for the echo of your query.

I don't know what it is. I felt like doing something obnoxious, so I did.

To me, Anime is no different than any other form of entertainment. Some people like reality shows. Some people like shows about science or sports. Others like the shows you see in regular prime time television. The only difference in Anime is that it's drawn and not shot live. An anime story is still a story. If you think of some of the crazy anime with alien battles and characters with magical powers and things like that, there are regular shows that do the exact same thing (Star Trek, Once Upon a Time, etc).

The people who think those of us who watch anime are weird are the ones who still think that anything animated is just for kids or they have this strange idea that only perverts watch anime. We all know that both of those assumptions are complete crap. Are there perverts watching Anime? I'm sure there are, but I am sure just as many pervs watch shows like Jersey Shore and Community. Anime is just another story told in a different way. That's it.

We're not perverts...not all of us, at least. We're not weirdos. We're not children. We're people just like everyone else.

Its not so much people are weird because they watch anime, its more people who watch anime are weird.
Anime caters to a specific group of people,
Social outcasts,
Shy,
Flat out strange
Its sad but true.
Id still take my strange current significant other over a "Normal" person!
