What is a weeaboo?

I hate them so bad. The only anime they watch are Naruto, Bleach, Oran Highschool, Baka and Test, and Hetalia. It's annoying as fuck!

I've never really hidden it, but I've never really flaunted it, either.

But I find the older I get, the less I care, so more people know about it that I wouldn't have otherwise mentioned it to.

It's my hobby, and it brings me pleasure. Some people collect stamps.

Enjoy your life. Embrace your joys. Let the haters go screw.

I mean, it's nothing that I'm ashamed of, but I don't go around flaunting it as SixGunAlchemist said. It's an interest of mine so if people ask, of course I'll say yes I like animanga but I'm not the type to be too forceful about it.

For the most part my friends don't know. I'm not really trying to hide the fact, it just never comes up. Personally these days I could care less who knows. I don't go out of my way to mention it though because:

In high school I remember kids talking loudly about it, hyperventilating about it, and just being obnoxiously weeaboo about it. I felt embarrassed for them. It's ok to be passionate, but it's like religion; people get freaked out when you start raving about it. I would discuss it in public if I found someone who could do so in a normal way like how most people talk about their hobbies. I don't mind people talking about it or wearing anime merchandise... It's just some people don't know limits or basic social norms. They're addicted to it or something. Then again I'm not a fan of anyone having a shouted conversation about anything, be it tv shows or politics.

At university an anime club was starting up. I figured it'd be kind of laid back and general nerding out in a good way. Shitting on my expectations all of them were just models of stereotypical otaku. Socially awkward, overly loud and opinionated about it, and just downright creepy; It was like being on 4chan except in real life. Not to mention (adding to the creepiness) all the guys just raving about Lucky Star and waifus. They all wanted to watch stuff like Fruits Basket, Cowboy Bebop, and Azumanga. There's nothing wrong with those anime, but come on, but they were like hardcore into it all; scarily so. Needless to say I didn't show up after the first meeting.

As far as J-pop... I listen to j-pop and k-pop but god help me if anyone finds out. That's one thing I do hide. Not because of what it is, I'd be just as embarrassed to be listening to pop from the US.

i get what you say op, i still hide it... its like if i die for the love of god somehow my external hdds and pc history to be erased from earth

though, my brother watches anime as well so it isnt that bad as when i thought only i watched. ( i kinda got him into it lol)

but yeah other than the fine anonymous people of the Internets and my bro i dont have someone to share this little bit of my life, most people that surrounds me has other type of interest that i myself used to enjoy a lot but not that much anymore (parties, sports, etc)

I don't necessarily hide that I watch anime, but for some reason I tend to be a bit embarrassed talking about it with those who do not also watch.

Well I don't really hide the fact that I watch anime the topic just never comes up. I'm not very good at striking up conversations but when I do they are usually short lived conversations that don't involve the talk of anime. I mean if you go to my house it becomes pretty obvious that I am an otaku but if the topic of anime never comes up in regular conversation for some reason people just would never see me as an anime lover. I mean also its kind of weird to be talking to someone about sports or movies and then you just spurt out "I love anime!!!" So I dunno anime is not a very easy topic to ease into a conversation especially to people who you just met or to people you know who don't watch anime.

I don't hide the fact but if I have the door open here in my country they would look strange at me with those Japanese voices and such. I love them but people here just don't get it >>

No, but I don't shout it to the world. Let's just put it this way; if I hear someone talking about anime whether it's online or in "real life" conversations, I join in

Nope. Proud otaku here. You have no idea how many conversations I've started by saying 'So I was watching this anime...'

Kinda sorta, there is just so much that you could point at and be ashamed of; I know I shouldn't care about what others think, but I still do. Until the day I can actually talk about it in person with people without them just thinking I am weird and into 'cartoon porn' then I will hide it from most people.
