I thought EVERYONE in the anime fandom is weird including the fans that try to be "normal".
The normal people outside the anime fandom have shunned us.


Just sayin'.

I know many people who are pretty strong anime fans and are kinda weird. When I observe some of them it almost looks like they think they're in some real-life anime. They try to behave like anime characters or they try to look like them, walk like them, its kinda disturbing.

I'm sure this is a rare occurrence. I doubt that the majority of otakus do this. I know I don't. Sometimes you can't even tell otakus from regular people.

ah hate that stereotype!! but it is true a big amount of anime fan have met are quite socially strange! but they can be interesting to talk to, and they are not the only type of people who like anime!! i know a lot of socially adept people who enjoy it, also. it sucks people like to shun those who like anime! it is like judging somebody w/o really know them just because are minority. people just think it is weird because they look at it and think 'oh it is some stupid nerdy ching chong cartoons!' w/o even giving it second thought.

am betting anybody would like anime if they gave it a chance with a genre they like, hell even my mom liked it when i showed her it! :3 gamers used to be considered weird but now it is 'cool' because so many people tried it and now love it.

you can not help it if you like what you like!! just accept and embrace it to a healthy extent!! stop worry about what other people think so much.

Even if I didn't love anime I think I am weird. I would rather be considered odd/weird/unique then normal/boring. Just have to accept yourself for who you are, be optimistic and have a "I don't give a crap" attitude about other people's views on yourself. Once I started doing that, life became a lot easier for myself.

My friends don't see me as "the type" to watch anime. I don't know what they mean exactly. Most of my friends don't watch anime, but that doesn't make me weird for watching it. I'm weird for completely different reasons haha

Yes, really weird.
But I love them nonetheless.
Actually none of them that I know are isolating themselves from the world or whatever you wanna call it.
As for me, I'm just a quiet, obsessive anime fan. And I find talking about anime in person to be really, really weird and disturbing. I guess I'm just not used to it.
I gotta admit though, cosplayers are kind of strange, even though they look amazing.
And to hear native English speakers saying, for example 'naruto', is something I dislike. I dislike pretty much everything that's said incorrectly. I don't like my own accent when I speak English, so I'm not trying to offend anyone here.
My point is, anime is something I enjoy in private, I get excited when people I know irl enjoy it as well, but I don't talk about it with said person. It's kind of pointless.

Well I don't consider myself weird. I'm a little shy but I'm not a loner. I have a friend I talk to pretty much everyday and some other friends too. Other people probably consider me weird though. Especially since I cosplay too, but Idc.

I usually feel like im the only non-weird or socially awkward person who actually parties and everything. I been to some anime clubs and usually half the people are extremely weird. Not all people that watch anime are weird though.

This post is just ridicules stupid...

Sorry i had it edit:
If you consider yourself an Anime fan or whatever you use to describe it... You shouldn't feel sorry for yourself that your friends don't like anime and think of everyone as WEIRD.
I guess the question you should be asking "Are you weird for hanging out with friends like that, and should you stop watching anime at all."

Ps: I just thought this post was Stupid and i should of reply with some harsh reply..
I love cosplay although i've never participated in one.

I'm weird but that has nothing to do with anime.

I'm in an anime/manga meet-up group and most of them you'd never think of as strange in the slightest or even be aware they're into anime/manga. And although we do have a couple of "fan-boys" you'd only know if you got them started on the subject.

Based on these forums, my answer is undoubtedly yes. The amount of social awkwardness is quite amusing.

LMAO, yes. Some of the stuff I've read on here just makes me cringe.

"Being weird" is a social perception. I am a huge fan since my elementary days but I'm a ninja so most people would never be able to guess my love for anime unless I show them! It's up to you how to act around others and I know I can be much weirder but the norm is to be normal! LOL
