Yeah, I think the only correlation could be due to initial exposure. I'm sure a lot more people - including those not already 'weird' or else in the gaming/sci-fi/generic nerdy community - would watch anime if it simply got properly aired on TV over here in the UK.

Oh, Anime Central, where art thou?

Yep, no doubt about it.

In my experience... anime fans are pretty weird on the whole. Nice people, but weird. But there's nothing wrong with that, imo. I'd rather hang around weird people than normal ones, because otherwise life would be pretty bland.

I don't think anime is watched by loners but i do think it relates to antisocial geeks because most of the themes and plots are about a antisocial protagonist who then becomes famous for doing something weird, crazy, or heroic.

“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.”
— Simon Pegg


It's one of my favorite quotes and one I enjoy living by.

plus I've reached what George Carlin called "Old F%$#" stage where you don't give a damn what anyone thinks about you anyway

That's obviously a stereotype. It's like saying all Japanese like sniffing panties or how all math geeks have pimples and have buck teeth. No one is werid its just an opinion and stereotype type of issue.Werid is fallen upon the opinion of someone or idea. Anime fans or etc aren't weirdo they're just fans just like someone might consider a 1D or Bieber fan a weirdo for liking their crappy music.[Just using as example for any 1D or Bieb fan.]

To non anime fans we are "weird" but amongst ourselves most of us are normal I am grateful CR has such a great forum where anime fans can be themselves without feeling "weird."

We are a strange lot, otherwise how else would anime fans be willing to dress up as thier favorite character any other day of the year except halloween? Strange isn't a bad thing though, just means we break the mold.
