I have always wondered about that. It seems like some weeaboo only wants "authentic" Japanese things, ie Japanese girls, Japanese music, and Japanese people to be friends with, while others seem like they'll take anything/anyone that is Asian. This guy I know is dating a Chinese girl, and he's weeaboo. So, does it depend on the individual weeaboo? Or will they accept all things Asian (Japanese being the best)?
Don't worry--most people feel the same way.
It saddens me that people like this exist. Hopefully it's just a phase.
Holy shit, this whole weaboo thing is hilarious!
I live in Japan, married to a Japanese woman, working as a Japanese-English translator in the finance biz, and I had never heard of a weaboo until yesterday! Of course, I don't watch anime, maybe that's why.
>>128 you are clueless, you are not living the weaboo dream. It's a bit like a guy living in England criticizing people who enjoy arthurian fiction and claiming he wears chainmail every day. Completely pointless.
80% of you folks on this board are plain retarded. 10% of you are just outright dumbasses. There are a scant 10% of people who actually have an idea what being a weeaboo is without being one. 50% of the 80% are actually weeaboos by the way.
So what ppl are obsessed with japan. Everyone's obsessed with something in their life. And if u aren't then ur life sucks. It's just facts of life everyone has goals and sometimes create them without seeing the whole picture. Yes yes I'm obsessed with Asian culture and I know Japan isn't as awesum as I see it on the Internet through the j dramas or j pop stars but why do ppl wanna be assholes and say oh they are just anime obsessed star wars fans. What's that supposed to mean? What's wrong with star wars? What's wrong with liking Asian media on all levels extremity? Whats wrong with anme porn? U know what's the problem? Is having society brainwashed by negative jerk offs, thinking that people like things other than sports, and mainstreamed crap are nerdy and repulsive freaks. That ppl should stick to their own ethnicities and countries norms. Stupid haters u only hate weeaboos because u hate ur self and are too shame to try new things outside of what ur friends and family do.
I live in central Europe, and most of weeaboos here are into Japanese stuff only. Some of them also like k-pop, but that's all.
I find it interesting that all the people who are defending weeaboos and saying things like "so what?" automatically follow up their argument with a bunch of stuff that basically makes them a weeaboo. Thank you; I lol'd.
I don't mind liking another culture. I like to read about other cultures, and I think some of them are better than American culture. I like Europe personally, but there's a point where it becomes ... just too much. I am American, and as much as i like James Bond, Dr. Who, and whatever else, I'm still American, and not British. I'm not really Bosnian because I know a few words and like Sarma. What bugs me about weeaboos is no their love of Japan, but their need to become Japanese, to ignore their own culture and their own country and so on to be more "Japanese".
Don't you think if you have a smile, it's easy to make friends with foreigner?
Hey guys!! When do you have a smile?
