Post Reply Are there any weeaboos on Crunchyroll?
Posted 8/8/14
I do want try living there after I saved up a lot of money, which might take 6-10 years. And that would be the time required to learn the language (to read and write).

So I am investing of lot of time, energy and money just for the sake of immigrating there. Does that fit the criteria for a weeaboo? or do I need to sound more delusional?

I've seen my fair share here and there. I try to just pretend I never saw whatever they posted, and carry on with my life.

Pfftt.. of course. I saw someone on this website with "BAKABAKABAKA" as their headline. If that doesn't scream "weeaboo" I don't know what does.

Meh. I've been deeply and sometimes forcefully immersing myself into Japanese culture for a while now, because I'm trying to learn the language(originally due to a distaste towards subtitles). So I fear I may be borderline weaboo. But I don't use Japanese words or slang in my day to day language or anythng like that. I mean Japan is cool and all, and it would be nifty to try and live there, but they have their ups and downs just like every other country.

On a side note, did someone really think the Japanese dub for Frozen was better than the English version? I mean I don't like Frozen either way, but seriously.(I hate Disney's love of random musicals.)

Without a doubt.
How do I know? I tutor many of my peers in at my school, and they always seem to be adorning themselves with crunchyroll apparel.

EDIT: I fear that I wasn't clear enough, so I'm making this edit lol. I tutor them in Japanese (language and literature), and they're always going on with something about how jealous they were and how they wished they lived and were born in Japan...I feel very little empathy, but I guess I see where they're coming from? lol

Nothing wrong with using Japanese words in your everyday language…I mean, when speaking Japanese I incorporate MANY English words into my speaking. As do just about most of the Japanese population lol.

As for the Japanese version of Frozen, all of my family and friends prefer the version in English. I have no preference.
I did, however, enjoy the music enough to buy both soundtracks.

Don't know of any here, though I am still new.

Most of us (I'm convinced) simply love Japanese shows and even some culture, but not in a maniac type of way. It's just like preferring your friends house over your own; you crave new things but still love what is already yours.

Any country? I would think that we'd at least be better than the Democratic Republic of the Congo and North Korea, and that's just off of the top of my head; however, this is quite off-topic, and would probably result in a mod stepping in if we allow our conversation to get heated and/or lengthy.

Anyway...

Every now and then, I've seen some that I'd be willing to call "weeaboos." I generally ignore them, but, regardless of my intentions, I all but completely forget the encounters within a few weeks or so. I only remember enough to say that I've undoubtedly come across a few.

I'm a weeaboo. I'm joking ironically. I would like to visit Japan, but I am far too American and rude to live there.

But this thread does remind me of someone I met on here a while ago who claimed she lived in Japan. She would always tell me the fun she'd have, and what it's like going to a school that required uniforms. She'd also tell me everyday life felt like an anime. And I thought it was sweet. But one time, she told me she was going to bed because it's late. I live in North America, you see, and it was night time here the time she told me that. Then it struck me. Don't we have completely different time zones?

Caught in your lies. I'm an idiot. Ah, well, she was well educated in certain kanji and Hiragana + Katakana, and I only knew that because I was taking a Japanese class at the time, so it was kinda hard to tell.

I didn't even know there was a word for that. Yeah, I kind of am one I guess. But I don't get their political views and language 100% lol I do like their way of combining modern technology, art, and old-fashioned morals. I wouldn't mind living in Japan one day... honestly, anywhere but the U.S. because I'm an immigrant and I disagree with a lot of the ways things are done here. I'm just glad I'm not on the streets at least I'm thankful, but things could be better.

i act like one ironically if that counts lmao

Weeaboos do exist here; not only have I've seen them, I was on this website when I was going through my weeaboo phase and made a lot of embarrassing posts myself (on another account ((which is why I remade)), but I'm pretty sure you'll find them on any anime related websites. :\

I don't really have anything against them, though I'll admit some of the things they say gives me second-hand embarrassment...

This is like asking if there are body builders on a fitness website.
