  It's not really weird at all... with the kind of
  "cartoon identity" the western TV has established,
  such is commonplace in almost every society around
  the world. Ironically, to them, they probably think
  of people like us weird.
  See? This is what I meant by saying that the western
  people should never ever get into directing or making
  anime. They just have a completely different mentality
  from the asians... particularly that of the Japanese.

Another misconception about anime that Ive come across is that people see all
anime as just "porno cartoons" ... you cant IMAGINE how pissed I get when
people say that, especially since i dont watch that kind of anime
