When I say "Thanks" to one of my friend,he replies me by saying ''Anytime".
Doesn't its an odd reply?

No this is not an odd response. A lot of Americans might say this. It's just very informal and it means that he/she is glad to help at any time. But I would write it as 2 words, any time Emotion: smile
What should we say formally?
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Formally, just say "You're welcome" or "Don't mention it" but you only need to say one of those in the most formal circumstances, as a sign of respect; for example, if you don't know someone, or if you're speaking to a business executive or someone who is much older than you.
I've found that "Any time" as a reply carries a certain tone of familiarity, in addition to being casual. Of course it can depend on whether one stresses the first word or the second.
When said casually to a stranger, it implies, "Let's do it again sometime."
(At least that's the way it seems to me.) [6]
When it's said to a friend, there's usually no double meaning.
