You'd be surprised. The general point of view is that people who watch anime are weird because the most vocal ones on it are otakus and people who dedicate a lot of time and money into anime. The thing is, your personality should not have a direct dependence on your interests, and more often than not doesn't. Playing on sports teams in the past, there are plenty of awkward/weird people on those teams, it's just in their personality. I know plenty of outgoing people who wouldn't be considered weird or awkward that watch anime regularly, but I think it's more the fact that introverted, and shy people pick up hobbies such as anime and happen to become friends with the same type of people.

Typical of all stereotypes people never know the truth unless they experience it for themselves.

I've met many fellow anime fans yes many are weird not because they like anime but because they hide it. It hurts to see that, I don't think you should hide the fact that you like anime I don't even when I'm being made fun of for watching anime I just smile and explain why i like anime.

Sure, a lot of people who watch anime may be "geeks" or "nerds" but that doesn't make them loners or awkward or the like. I've known a lot of nerdy people who have droves of friends and are well-liked in general. I've also known some really awkward, loner type people who would never watch anime if you paid them. It's not as if anime is inherently associated with certain personality traits, if it didn't exist the people who watch would probably just have another hobby in its place.

For example, I try to stay away from the forums on CR for the simple fact that a lot of people are weird. I mean, just take a look at some of the topic threads in general discussion (it's not just general discussion by the way). You scratch your head and think..what the f***? So yeah, there are some people that watch anime who are rather "normal" in a sense and those who aren't. And the ones who aren't are usually socially awkward.

I've been a fan of Manga , Anime and MMPORG gaming for over 15 years, most of my real life friends don't really get it and think its weird that at 34 years old I'm still watching cartoons but there we go. I have a University Degree, I'm creative and caring and so the small circle of friends I have accepts me even though yes I am somewhat weird and socially awkward.
When I was younger I would hide the fact I was into anime but now I wear my Otaku badge firmly on my sleeve and don't give a monkey's what people think. Id rather been seen as young at heart than one foot in the grave already

Well, I think like everything else, anime has different groups also.

You have people who just watch it as they would a normal T.v. show ( me)
You have those you watch it and research it religiously.
You have the cosplayers..
the fanbases...
ect.

So, in my case, most of the people I know who like anime belong to either the second or third group, so even around them, I am sort of a black sheep.
And to answer your question," Are most anime fans weird?" I think it is more like we like anime because of the fact we are weird, not vice-versa, and because of us being "different" we are able to acknowledge, appreciate, and empathize with the ordeals of the characters we watch.
