An overly zealous anime fan, usually a newer or younger fan to anime who is very loud and excited about anime. These fans are the loud minority of fans that are very upfront and loud about anime in public - unlike the silent majority of anime fans.

Weeboo is also associated with the idea with the idea that this anime fan is excited about anime, but does not know much about anime. This goes back to the generalization that weeboos are newer or younger fans.

These anime fans are the "stereotype" of anime fans which the general public points to as fans of anime. They are the type of anime fans that use Japanese in there everyday conversation or push there love of anime on other people who are outside the anime fandom. These people do not always understand the concept of inside voices.

They are also different from anime fans - or otakus in Western culture - who are zealous about their fandom in private or at appropriate times, such as anime conventions or with other anime fans.
Look at this weeboo running around screaming about Pokemon.

I was just talking to this weeboo who said they love Sailor Moon but couldn't name any of the Outer Senshi.

These weeboos make it look like every anime fan is a hyper screaming five year old.

I have never said this. I just watch anime. And read manga and H-doujins.

I'm not at otaku levels yet.

weeboos are the ones starting new threads about "dub vs sub anime (or anything of related). Voice his or her opinion like it matters.

While the opening poster may not know he or she has been branded a weeboo, they are the weeboos.

I had to Google it. Apparently its a portmanteau of "wannabe" and "Japanese" that originated in some comic or manga clip.

I'm not a weeaboo and don't consider myself otaku, altho I would probably fit the profile. I do have a (probably over) enthusiasm for anime, collecting anime figures and stuff like that. But I don't use words like "kawaii" or eat omelette rice just because my favorite anime characters do so. But it's not just anime, I'm a fan of animation of all types, so while I might have nendo figures of Squid Girl, I've also got Western figures too.

...the meaning of Otaku is extremely negative in meaning as it is used to refer to someone who stays at home all the time and doesn't have a life (no social life, no love life, etc)...


It could very well be this view on "otakus" that make people proud to declare themselves as such. There are so many different reasons for why people do things. Maybe it's because they're trying to break the stigma? Make people more aware and show them that otakus are people with feelings too? They think its exclusivity is cool? Or perhaps they're just being rebellious and trying to say, "Hey! I don't care what you think about otakus! I like what I like and am not hurting anyone [hopefully] so mind your own business!"

Who knows...but the way I see it: as long as your exercising of free-will isn't encroaching on mine, then keep on keepin' on!
