No, cause I'm Japanese, but I'm probably a reverse weeaboo, since I can speak English and live in the US.

No, I was never mistaken in thinking a katana was a good weapon.

That wouldn't make you a reverse weaboo, that just makes you a Japanese person living in the US. A reverse weaboo would be someone who lies things simply because they aren't Japanese

In the older days of anime / manga fandom (i.e. back in the '90s, during the early stages of the boom), it was not unusual to sling a few Japanese words and phrases around if you were among other fans. It was almost a code speak for knowing we were safe among our own. ... And then, in the early '00s, a Certain Web Forum gave the term "weeaboo" its current meaning and pretty much trashed what little unity we had up to that point. Anime / manga fandom has been pretty hateful and divisive ever since. (Not that it was trouble-free before, but this really put the screws to it.)

Yups. In my first year of high school and the year after that.

I think almost everyone goes into the """"weeaboo"""" phase. I don't judge them because there are many people who go through the phase and most of the time; they are pretty young. So they don't know the judgement yet on if it was or wasn't okay on being one. As well as knowing what is right or wrong and what's too far. I know they will go past that phase when they are older and learn to respect cultures.

No I don't have a DeviantArt account, I can't pronounce Japanese words, and even when I was 13 I knew it was a thing I should never mention to anyone, and should just repent my sins of liking the animes.

I did from about when I was 15ish til I was around 18. I never actually used Japanese words, but I was determined I was gonna move to japan and everything would be awesome and I'd be living in an anime more or less. Some things happened, and one power point presentation that took me an hour to present I realized "wait, maybe there's something wrong with my thinking." I then back peddled super hard, realized everything will probably suck equally no matter where I go. Now I'm a perfectly normal functioning member of society who happens to enjoy anime, games, and manga. I am still attempting to learn Japanese however, I plan to take a vacation there within two years and I wanna know if they trash talk me.

I have a couple plushies, wallscrolls + t-shirts (games and anime), a couple figures, keychains and a cellphone strap. That's it. Never tried to use Japanese when speaking. I like anime and I like video games. I wouldn't pretend to like things I actually don't or pretend to not like things I do.

Just a normal human who has hobbies and interests. Simple as that. So, nope.

started to think that you were Japanese
I feel embarrassed for anyone that thought that, I actually feel embarrassed reading it. And I never went into that phase thank god. That would be silly. There was a phase I wanted to live in America if that is something similar and thought that Americans must get to do so many cool things in their cities

Nope, never thought I was Japanese
I enjoy the food and the culture, and pretty much only say "banzai" or "sayounara" because that's part of my surf lingo
If that makes me a weaboo, dont care dudes lol

never once thought i was japanese. how can i? im white as hell. lol I have said a couple japanese words outloud but never again cause it was too embaressing. So i just think to myself honorifics on peoples names. I havent known any "weaboos" however. But if theres some people out there who think they are japanese and mispronouncing the language even just saying random japanese words in public? *shivers* I am however an otaku. and proud of it!

Nope I didn't have a weeaboo phase but my friend is currently going through it and it's very cringe worthy.
