This is the reverse of that old joke are you a runner or a jogger? Basically the gist of that joke is im a runner and anyone who is slower or does so less than me is a jogger, but if you ask someone who is faster or runs more often they would say im jogger. The premise is personal preception.....as many people have stated they consider themselves otakus but not weeaboos the reason is to them "weeaboo" carries a heavier negative than otaku. Personally I feel that if you consider yourself an otaku more than 50% of the time your in the class of person that i'd also call a weeaboo.

Must be nice ignoring that Japan has a dark side and isn't as great as it appears. And it must also be nice that majority(the way I see it)of the weeaboos are so anti-America. Yet it must also be nice knowing that it's better to be Japanese, because it's the country that created anime. Oh well. I guess it must be nice.

I think it is highly unlikely there are no weeaboos on this site.

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.


That's the definition of weeabo..

you said that "anime fans" are considered weeaboos to the public when that's not the case. you'll only get shit for liking anime and be called a weeaboo if you actually are one who goes on and on about anime.

You bet I've come across them.

Usually I give them a piece of my mind.

But my main point is that sure, I picked up some of the Japanese used in anime, but I rarely use it except with my other otaku friends that I know very well, and i use it just like american slang (in a joking manner). Japanese can be learned by those who put forth effort but let's face it. People that learned roman script languages first will have the toughest time learning Japanese (in writing).
So I can't say I am weeabo. Other cultures interest me as much as the Japanese.


You sir, are an absolute moron.

If you think America is the worst nation in the world, you are just further proving your stupidity. Take it from a person who has been to many countries globally and have family in many countries who have been living there for years. Sure, America has its problems and then there's the sh*t government - but it is still one of the best countries even with those problems. Japan is a good country too no doubt, but there are a ton of social problems, denials, and other issues that constantly and consistently creep up. Not to mention they're probably the most xenophobic nation in the world, and have interesting views on race to boot.

Then again, you're only 18. So perhaps I'll forgive a bit of that stupidity.

I apologize to you too then. Once again I meant it in the American culture, but it is controversial to say. My mistake.

I've been to Japan a few times and plan on visiting later and I would prefer to live there than where I live now.
But I live in Australia so I don't know if that's justified.

Right, because the culture of Japan with its lovely animes with lolicons/shotacons, violent series, submissive moe girls, graphic pedophilic mangas, denial of war crimes etc. are normal compared to other countries. Okay.

No need to apologize. But next time actually take a good look at what you're defending. Like I said though, you're young; that is something I expected.

I love Japan, and I'm sure you all do too, but I don't curse the roundness of my eyes or wish to either live there or have been born there. However I would love to visit, as I would with almost everywhere else around the world.

Everything is fine in moderation, but an obsession is always unhealthy. Go learn the language, go research the culture and be involved in the latest news and media, latest music/movies/anime, etc. Find Japanese people to interact with, hell do whatever you want, but learn to differentiate and not obsess, and keep it as a hobby/interest and not a way of life.

The way I see it (and I can see the irony here), the way I choose to look and dress is heavily influenced by the metal culture I'm involved with. I see bands live on a weekly basis, I'm always researching new bands and anticipating new albums, speaking to other people with similar interests, speaking to band members whenever I get the opportunity, and it's one of my greatest passions in life. But regardless of how I choose to look, I can still put on a suit/work uniform and live my life as a normal person, socially and professionally.

I can speak to people like a normal human being without raising the horns and windmilling as a greeting, just as I don't greet normal people in Japanese phrases, bowing...

... or this.
