The question is NOT "Is liking anime weird?"

but rather is anime itself weird?

I've seen Boku No Pico. Sometimes weird isn't always good. Gotta say it was a hoot though.

Yes.
Anime is playing to the fantasy and ideals of the generation they are attempting to entertain so of course it will be weird. It will always have an "off" element, especially to those watching it from a different culture.

They say "truth is stranger than fiction". So the truth is that anime is indeed weird yet it keeps pulling us into the weirdness.

Certain things they portray in anime are weird to me;


for instance, the act of using the foot to stomp on someone's head as a gesture from a friend saying, "you're silly" or "Why you gotta do this".

I don't really like seeing a character being stomped by someone's foot or being smacked in the head with a fan or hand constantly. I'm not even sure if this is a "cultural" thing or they are trying to be "humorous"... but I find it weird and very uncomfortable.

Can be, but isn't that the fun behind it sometimes?

I think it is without a doubt.

But that in itself has appeal, no?

Anime comes from a countery where you can buy use girls panties in vending machines. So yeah it can be a little odd
