Many people think that anime is weird, but that is because they have a preconceived notion of what it is and what it's not. Anime is an interesting phenomenon that has its own culture and is quite unique. It is not for everyone, but it has something that no other show can match. There is a lot of hype surrounding anime, but some people are just not interested. This article will try to answer the question, "Why is anime so weird?"

Anime is not as weird as some people make it out to be. It is a genre of animated shows that comes from Japan. Its genres include action, romance, comedy, fantasy, mecha, space and sports. Its characters often speak in Japanese, but they can have English voice actors and be dubbed into other languages as well. Anime can be as serious or as silly as other genres of television, but it is definitely different from western cartoons.

Some people may find some animes cringy, but that is only because they are based on Japanese culture and have some of their societal norms in them. That is not a bad thing at all. Most of the time, the story itself is the thing that is cringy. There are some that have cheap plots such as Spongebob Squarepants or Phineas and Ferb, but most animes have a great story.

Another reason why some people think anime is weird is because of the fan service in it. This is not a good reason to not watch it, but it does tarnish the image of the industry. Women in anime are not there for male fan service, they are strong and dynamic characters. They are not damsels in distress, and they can go toe-to-toe with men in any situation.
