In your opinion. But weeaboo is just a word trolls made up. Because they like insulting people.


But they do! Weeaboo it's self maybe made up, but the term before that was wapanese! If you do a bit of a search on CR, you'll see loads of people that claim to be Japanese, and have Japanese on their profile which has obviously been Google translated. These people almost deserve to be insulted. No offence.

I don't do that so there is no need to say "no offence". But these people still don't deserve to be insulted. Whats wrong with wanting to be from another culture? They are not hurting or attacking anyone. And weeaboo and wapanese are words made up by trolls. which is just stupid. Trolls are the ones that deserve to be insulted.

Hah, I never said you did. And I said "almost". I personally would never insult someone for being wapanese on the internet, 'cause you never know what sort of person they are really, and I don't want to be responsible for them losing respect. If weeaboo and wapanese are words made up by trolls, then it's probably one of the few contributions they have actually made to society as a whole. Unless you can come up with a word that actually exists.

Also, insulting a troll is kinda stupid. Putting oil onto a flame~ No offence.

All I am saying is trolls are stupid and pathetic. They make up these words and they are not even that bothered by what people like or are interested in. They just find any excuse to be abusive. Some of them pick on otaku's randomly.

I'm confused. I thought weaboo refers to otaku who love to watch anime in Japanese ONLY AND HATE ALL other language dubs and bash other viewers for doing the opposite as a hobby. (NOTE: I am NOT making vs. thread or gossip. Just stating what I've heard and seen for most of the time.)

Judging by the American definition of an otaku, it's really no different than a comic book, superhero, fantasy, or sci-fi geek of American works like DC or Marvel. Am I wrong?

Hmm, I think I fit the description of Otaku better than weeaboo. Otaku is just a term which I might use to describe my passion for anime/manga and Japanese culture in general.

Although I'd consider myself a pretty lightweight Otaku in comparison to some individuals out there.

As for weeaboo-ism. I occasionally use Japanese words and expressions, or replace English words with Japanese. I can't really recall the last time I did this very moment, but still. When I do I'm not usually doing it seriously. I have to be in a certain frame of mind, or engulfed in Otaku passion at the time. That or I'm probably doing a horrible impression of someone/something.

So I guess to an extent being an otaku goes hand in hand with a little bit of weeaboo-ism for me.

The more I try to remember when I last threw in a random word in Japanese the less I'm able to recall.
But the extent of my weeaboo-ism is pretty much what's listed below:

I like saying, "Nandatou!?" in a horrified voice, or "Aah, sou desu ka~" / "Naruhodo. . ." in my -detective on the verge of a breakthrough- voice. (Detective Conan is an accurate example)

And that's the difference.

I am an otaku. I have been one for longer than most of you have been alive.
One of my fondest memories is watching Ponderosa in Japanese.
I was laughing so hard I had tears running down my face. Picture "Hoss" speaking Japanese.

People like to put labels on other people.

Hell, now I'm a Dirty Old Man Otaku. Its grea
t!

I'd rather be a weaboo than an otaku--

oh wait they're the same thing.(Haha I'll explain in a sec' (jus' to not to sound too offensive or anything like that))

Except

you guys do know that the common,normal Japanese people don't like otakus?
Otakus in Japan are different than the Otakus the non-Japanese people think they are.

They are

very extreme, as in...

Collecting figurine, buying dakishimete pillows, having a waifu, being an hikkikomori, collecting ero magazines, collecting doujins and -----etc.

In one word,

KIMOI.

If you're just a normal dude that likes animu desu, then you're just a normal animu rabuaaaaa---not an otaku.
Read Genshiken and you'll understand what otakus are.It's all about otakus,bby.REAL OTAKUS.There's nothing to be proud to be an otaku if you don't want to be labeled as kimoi. There's a lot of people who like watching anime, but that doesn't mean that they're necessarily otakus. Otakus in Japan are considered as WEIRDOS, OUT-OF-THE-ORDINARY people. You can draw manga without being an otaku, you can draw anime-style picture without being an otaku, you can appreciate the Modern Visual Japanese Culture without being an otaku.OTAKU IS EXCESSIVENESS.

NEVERTHELESS,they're proud of what they are. They are NOT ASHAMED OF WHAT THEY ARE.
To be an otaku just go 4chan for a month everyday in /a/ and you'll get the image.

Weaboos are considered of the same caliber as otakus(in Japan)
but oh my so many people are tsun-tsun to admit that they're the same thing(wwwwwwwwwwww)
but it's not like it's insulting or anything,it's just the same thing used by trolls desu(stated by someone in this thread already)

So yeah.Weaboos>Otakus
'cause they're more...interesting(you know which way,the cool story bro one). Go search for HJ freak on youtube and that 's the kind of interesting I meant. And it's a term that reffers more to non-Japanese otakus peeps.
while Otakus are omoshiroi ku nai :< and a bit of nanka kimochi warui sa

'cuse me, my trolling habits made me abuse the nihongo language desu nyo.
And yes I'm a proud weaboo and what's wrong with that.
