People trying to hide that they're weeabos; technically anime fans are weaabos in the general public. Don't try to make yourself looks good.

if you want to be a true weeaboo then you can only know the basics like kawai, baka, etc. and nothing of the japanese culture yet imitate everything they do even though you have no idea why.

do you really have any idea what the general public is like? i'm pretty open with the fact that I like anime and no-one seems to care, even here in australia where everyone tries to be as macho as possible. just as long as you're not obsessed with it or go on about anime no-one will care.

Of course there are going to be weeaboos - we're on an anime site.

My language actually went through a weeaboo phrase once but I've stopped that and now my language is normal - I still use baka instead of bastard when I'm angry at a game though because I don't swear. Smeg is still my main swear replacement and I've always used the french "quoi" instead of "what" or "nani" even during my weeaboo phase so it wasn't quite a weeaboo phase. My little brother is constantly using "sugoi" to mean awesome and "kawaii" to mean cute though. I'm personally not too keen on it.

I'm very patriotic to Scotland and I want to live here all my life - unless I can go to Gensokyo. I love my country more than Japan - although that doesn't mean that I don't still love Japan. I'm very proud of being mixed Scottish and Hong Kong Chinese and everything I get from being both of them. Japan is the only country I've wanted to leave my house and go on holiday to though - that's really somthing for a guy who prefers to stay at home all day and play games.

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 apologize. I meant it in a different way but I admit that it was uncalled for now that think about it

Looking from the outside into my life. I am sure many would consider me a Weaboo or a Major Otaku with a huge case of denial.

Why do I say denial? Because I do not consider myself an Otaku (or a Weaboo for that matter). But even I can admit, looking at my life? There is almost no way I am not one or the other.

I have a bookcase full of Manga. Is that bad? No. Not at all, i'v probably been collecting for a few years to get to the point of a full bookcase right? Wrong. Less than a year. So 100+ manga volumes in less than 1 year. All in English from the same store, which roughly translates into $10-13 per volume x 100+ volumes = $1000-1300 in less than a year (luckily over half of what I own was given to me from friends, or on sales...) but even adding in those sales i've probably spent $500-700 on just Manga.

According to MAL I have 740 total entries. I know I am missing some in that total entry count because I just forgot to add them, or missed them, etc etc. Most people say stuff like "Wow 740 titles? That must of taken you years to watch all of that, When did you start watching Anime?" Answer? September 2012.

Yup that's right less than 2 years. I can admit my MAL has titles on it from my child hood, but those added all together would equal less than 100 titles more than likely. That means over 600 titles is what I have watched in less than 2 years. Hooray too much free time!

Add onto that over the 2 years I have also won (from contests and such), recieved as gifts from my Japanese neighbors, or bought: 2 wooden swords, 2 wall scrolls, an artbook (Kantoku specifically) calendar, 2 figma, a scarf, plenty of anime related games, Japanese goods that come from Japan, and I could keep going probably...

It is easy to say I am just in denial. But really it's I just don't consider myself a Weaboo or Otaku. Both are forms of putting people down, Weaboo I can admit are taking things to extreme, literally like setting their rooms or houses up in Japanese goods, dressing in traditional Japanese clothing, saying Japanese words COMPLETELY out of context... I have seen someone like this before, I am not this desperate, I am not this... insane... despite my love for Japanese stuff. I like Japanese stuff because I find many of it interesting. But I also find just as much interest in Chinese, Korean, German, Irish, Scottish, and even American stuff. I don't limit my interests.

Otaku... it's a hit or miss mattering WHO you are talking to really about whether this is good or bad. Some say it is bad, it's a way of putting someone down, etc etc. Others say it is just a term for an enthusiast, because there are plenty of types of otaku: Train Otakus, Anime Otakus, etc etc.

Either way, to reiterate again, I consider myself neither. I am just a fan with too much time on his hands.

Yeah you're not a weeaboo. You sound like you're going to put effort into emigrating to Japan. I'd say visit the country first to get a taste of what it's like and then decide if you really want to move. If you aren't native Japanese you will be gawked at and put in potentially racist situations. It's not like they mean any harm by it, they just are really really obvious when it comes to trying to mask their racism.

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.)


You ain't borderline, you sound like a normal human being. Literally everything you said is just someone interested in Japan. You are mixing Japanese and English in a cringeworthy way nor do you seemingly idolize Japan as a "can do no wrong country". So nope, you're not a weeaboo. It's all good.

Yeah, they're all hiding though. They're easy to spot irl though, it's the spaz.

Say the magic word, "Fk Japan" and let's see who rises up to defend.

I'm a Japanese literature and language major and plan on at least traveling and perhaps living in Japan if I like it enough. That being said, do I think it's better than every other country out there? Hell no. There are plenty of things I downright despise that take place in Japan. But it's the same thing with the U.S. There's good and bad to both or any other country for that matter.
I don't think people that think Japan is superior in every way to all other countries are stupid, rather, just very ignorant and uninformed. So calling these sorts of people weeaboos is a bit uncalled for.
Now of course there will be people that no matter what evidence is put forth on why Japan is worse than other countries in certain respects that will still loudly and proudly proclaim, "No no! Japan is still the best!" These people are probably deserving of the title weeaboo. But I don't know why people are as concerned about that when there seems to be far more of this unbridled sense of America being the BEST and that it always was and always will be. These are people that really don't have a clue and are just lost causes in my book, but I digress.
