weeaboo



***PLEASE READ***
***not trying to hate on anyone.... i just hate the stereotype of weeaboo given to otaku because of irresponsible fandom***

glompica (angela) asked for it

sorry about all the convention themed comics lately.... but i have one at the end of the month so its on my mind.

this was a situation that happen at otakon in baltimore where i held the elevator of a girl who asked me to....and that was her response....though i didn't hit her ^^;

if you are unaware of what a weeaboo is then go urban dictionary it,

if you are unaware what arigato means.....listen to styx....because as far as i am concerned that's the only appropriate way to know. (kidding)

but story short a weeaboo is a mean thing to call someone who is not of asian decent but is completely obsessed with asian culture....

hence those pretentious fangirls who think they know how to speak japanesse from watching anime and their ultimate goal in life is to go to japan like ts the holy land or something....become a manga artist and eat pocky and ramen for the rest of their lives screaming "KAWAII-DESU"

it chaps my ass because people like that have created a sterotype for everyone who is in anime fandom and because of dip shits like that we all get thrown in a category of obsessive ignorant nerdy fan-tards.

the majority of us are intelligent sensible people.... and some of us kinda start out in that "weeaboo" stage of nerdom and thats okay but the whole idea of acting in such an obsessive way puts a very negative sterotype on the genre and in a way hurts the industry itself by not making it sociably acceptable to like anime or be an otaku.

i for one couldnt care less about going to japan, learning the language or even watching an anime subtitled (though i do watch it alot that way).....id much rather watch a GOOD dub in my opinion....cause if i wanted to read....id go get the manga.

i like anime.
i like the art.
i like the stories.

and i like cosplay.

end of story ^^;

*rant complete*

happy saturday everyone

I first read it and am like what is that girl saying and from my little knowledge of Japanese remembered its thank you. I only learned to say thank you in Japanese because but I didn't try to learn its just something I learned along the way. Yeah I kinda started out as a weeaboo but my weeaboo life was in secret but I kinda cooled from the phase and I found a friend that also liked anime so I don't blurt out and stuff. I kinda ranted, Sorry.

@blurg

Depends on why you're learning it. If it has ANYTHING to do with manga or anime, probably.

@Iyssaspells

I prefer subs for the most part. Main reason?

The AWFUL voices for Naruto and Sakura in the Naruto dub, for starters.

The only dub I've really watched is Fullmetal Alchemist, original and Brotherhood.

Does it count as being a weeaboo if you 're actually learning japanese?

I prefer dubs too. But I do want to go to Japan but for the culture as whole plus the fact that anime/manga originated there. Of course, I want to go a lot of places. Not just Japan. And I spout a bunch of random Japanese words that I learned from anime and might pronounce them wrong but that's with any language. French, Spanish and even Greek. But I don't fangirl unless I'm with a really close friend who also enjoys it; not just throw it in random peoples faces. And even then it's mostly in depth convos and the occasional "No way, he's mine! Hahahaha!" It never gets out of control like a lot of the girls I see. So, I concede your point.

I was like that for the longest time, but if I were able I'd go back through time and slap myself. Seriously! No wonder I didn't have any friends! (okay, that [i]was[/i] emotionally cripling, and scaring, but eh) I'm not completely past being this person I so hate, but I'm on my way.

I used to be a weaboo I guess, actually I'm asian so would I be a weaboo? I spoke some japanese, but I also spoke spanish and french from time to time. And german random bits. It can be like other languages. At first the japanese weabooness (like a weaboo but not one since i'm asian?)I had was horrible with spurrs and I realize how stupid I sounded I was really excited with the anime spurr and I thank One Piece for slapping me out of that. At first I watched all these shojou then I got bored and moved on to shonen more of and stopped being a weaboo (if i were not asian).

I hate weeaboos.
they make a bad name for people who legitimately like anime, or Japanese culture.
They create a stereo-type.
I take Japanese, but I never say anything in Japanese pointlessly. Thanks to weeaboos, anyone who finds out that I take Japanese automatically marks me as a anime-obsessed waponese person.

Oh dear. Well, I study Japanese at the university and especially the newbies... oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.
Most of those weeaboos think "watching anime" = "studying", so each year the class sheds a bunch of those retards and moves on ^_^
