1) The language of weeaboo
2) Someone who has an unhealthy obsession with Japan
. Literally 'wannabe Japanese'. They think all Japanese
people like anime
, cosplay, etc. Just because I'm American does that mean I am in love with Hanna-Barbera cartoons? No! So stop acting like all Japanese love anime. Jesus Christ
Some signs of being Wapanese are:
(Remember these are the symptoms, not the disease.)
-Always being in the manga section of bookstores or, more likely, the library. Simply looking at manga and maybe getting a few of your fave series does not equal Wapanese. NOT EQUAL!!!
-Thinking that Japan is superior to, um, everything.
-Assuming that all Japanese people are EXACTLY like they are portrayed in anime.
-Pretending to know everything about Japan and its culture from reading/watching a few manga/anime.
-Liking something just because it's Japanese.
Someone is not Wapanese if:
-They only have bad language skills because they are still learning.
-They do not pretend to know everything.
-They genuinely like something, not are just infatuated with Japan.
-They understand kimono
are not for everyday wear, nor is cosplay
. If it's a special occasion, wearing the former is ok. Only wear the latter if:
a) It's Halloween
b) You are going to something later (i.e. Sakuracon)
c) It is a con, or a costume party
includes at least 50% non-Japanese music.
