No. Weeaboos or weebs are people who love another country so much (in this case, Japan) that they would gladly deny or throw away their own nationality to desperately want to be from another country. Like this guy, at the worst weeb phase, loves Japan so much and think it's so perfect that he would tell people he's Japanese (even when he's not), try to speak the language (when he doesn't know much at all and worse, learned from 'watching anime subbed'), wants to eat nothing more than Japanese food, acts like an anime character (many claim they did 'naruto ninja runs') and is essentially just a try-hard that it's cringey, creepy and embarrassing.

I mean you could want to learn the culture of another country and learn the language and such but to go over the top and be super obsessed is just bad. That's a weeb. Also, it doesn't apply to those wanna be Japanese. Due to the rise of K-Pop and K-Dramas these days, there's also the rise of 'Koreaboos' or wanna be Koreans. Also, I heard there are those who act like they're American, always speaking in English (when it's not their native language), only buys/use/wear American brands, and think their own countrymen are lowly because they're not American (the worst version of this is depicted on tv in comedies as people who think everyone in the US are cowboys).



Anyways, these two explain it better than I do:

Life is too short to give a shit about what other people think of you. Read this:

- The Top 5 Regrets Of The Dying
- http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/03/top-5-regrets-of-the-dying_n_3640593.html

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

"This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it."
Live your own life. It's short enough as it is.

"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." - Oscar Wilde

I enjoy being two people by choice.
work me: happy, talkative extrovert (sometimes I swear to much in front of general public but I'm not a robot and my boss love me)
home me: quiet, lazy, anime/video game nerd and I hate being bothered!!!

Not all anime fans are weeaboos, but all weeaboos are anime fans

Absolutely Not,
I am a Anime fan but I am far from a weeb. Honestly people give weebs a pretty bad image but I think rightly so. Basically in my opinion anyone that likes anime can be/become a weeb but not everyone that likes anime is a weeb. Weebs are kinda like the dark side of the anime fandom. All fandom's have them and they can become the worst of the worst.

You're only a weeaboo if you disregard/throw your own culture and believe everything Japanese is inherently superior.

You're a weeaboo if you think every anime has to have J-pop soundtracks, which don't fit well with Witch Hunter Robin or even Street Fighter II (the movie). Because you watch anime? not exactly. I like a lot of anime, but overall, I don't even like half of the anime that I watched (I never even liked Baccano! period).


wtf is a weeb?


A Japanophile, like a pedophile except he or she acts like a total junkie over anything related to Japan.
