“Wapanese” are decidedly caucasian individuals who, by means of thoroughly warped postmodern acculturation processes, have come to the decision that it is in their best interest to act as if they were denizens of the nation of Japan. The term “wapanese” can be accurately though of as an analog to wigger. A whitey can be classified as a “Wapanese” if they are in possession of two or more of the following defining traits:

1. Has an unhealthy obsession with shallow, saccharine and intellectually insulting animation shows (also refered to as anime by the nerd elite) originally tailored for young Japanese children

2. Operates under the erroneous belief that every aspect of American culture is vastly inferior to that of Japan’s – even though 99.9% of Wapanese have never had firsthand experience of any sort with their preferred culture (in other words, they’ve never set so much as one foot upon the island(s) of Japan)

3. Halfheartedly studies Japanese language and/or is a part-time practitioner of martial arts

4. Has a sword (samurai swords only, of course) collection

5. Is a Virgin
6. May be afflicted with a terminal case of yellow fever; however, they constantly fail in their quest for Japanese pootytang

7. Extreme cases may traipse around whilst wearing a “costume” that makes them resemble their favorite anime characters (this practice is reffered to as cosplay; cross-dressing and raging homosexuality is not an uncommon component of cosplay.

Interestingly, Wapanese are generally though of as “failures” and rejects within their own culture. Social scientists such as myself speculate that it was their failure to gain acceptance within their own culture than has lead many a white geek to seek out Japan’s culture as a surrogate; however, they’d be shattered to know that the insular and somewhat racist Japanese society would be even less accepting of them than the people of their true and native culture.

It can be have several meaning depending on how it is used.

It is commonly used to describe someone with an Unhealthy obsession with Japan and Japanese culture. They can sometimes be refered to as Japanophiles or weeabos.

It can also be used to describe some who is half caucasian and Japanese.

Although more commonly they are used to describe the ones with an unhealthy obsession. You know its an unhealthy obsession when you refuse to watch tv that is not of Japanese origin or in Japanese. Refuse to read something that is not or Japanese origin. Refuse to listen to music that is not J-pop etc. Refusing to do anything not related to Japanese culture.

They can be found almost anywhere. They are commonly found in anime conventions cosplaying as an anime character.

They can also be found slaughtering the language. Usually stringing random Japanese words in an english sentence.

They are often looked down upon for slaughtering the language and culture.

Most wapanese will only know the words "baka" "Kawaii" and "desu"

Most wapanese know very little about Japanese culture.

Yes Wapanese, there is more to the culture than manga, anime and sushi.

the bitch in your class that says "konichiwa" when the teacher calls attendace. T They also are in "otaku-otaku" club, drawing the same animations that look exactly the same as many drawings before them, and believe that Kingdom Hearts is on the same level as Ocarina of Time. Also, they go out of there way to accentuate the facta that they are playing Pokemon yellow version on their gameboy color. In reality, these people live in the whiteset families of america and have probably never set foot in japan, let alone any other asian country
All the people listed in my year book in the wapanese club(otaku-otaku) are also on my "im gonna knife those crakas some day" list

Of or relating to any specific form of behavior, method of attire or grooming. Also thoughts and opinions which are all adulterated and perverted based on over exposure to a limited aspect of Japan's popular culture. The term "popular" in this sense is subject to debate.

n. pl. Wapanese

1. An individual who embodies the general characteristics described above.

Also known as a "Gaylord".

2. The official language of the Wapanese. It is essentially the english language supplemented by the limited knowledge of Japanese to replace regular english words for no reason whatsoever. Usually it's the result of some half-assed home studies which are supplemented largely by the individual's anime collection.

Guy 1: "You know, Billy's been acting really weird these days. His hairstyle now makes him look like a Dragonball Z reject. When he isn't saying "ne?" at the end of interrogative statements he's too busy stuffing pocky in his mouth and attending anime and cosplay conventions. All whilst striking homoerotic action-poses and washing it all down with pocari sweat."

Guy 2: "That's a totally fucking wapanese thing to do. I hope he gets hit by a truck."

THe word can also apply to ricers, since they have an obsession with Japanese cars and they "modify" them into neon-lighted, over-painted, Kanji-decorated, bigass exhaust-pipe, low-chassis monstrosities that can't even go over a speed bump without taking serious damage. And thanks to crappy racing movies like The Fast and the Furious, we now have a big explosion of backward capped, baggy-pants-wearing nerds who will mutilate otherwise good Japanese cars just to be "the shizzle".
Damn. Look at what that Wapanese did to his mom's Honda Civic. The chassis is scraping against the road, the pink and green paintjob is flaking off, and there are so many headlights installed that it would permanently blind any oncoming traffic.

Contraction for 'Wanna Be Japanese'
Also used as a contraction for 'White Japanese'. Used to descrive people of Western Decent who share an unusual affinity all things japanese, such things as Anime, Drifting, and those horrid novelty shops. Hold themselves in high regard because of their high knowledge of japanese culture. Viewed by everyone else as try-hards. 80% of Wapanese people learn japanese at some stage in their lives.

A wannabe Japanese person. Many of the definitions found here are somewhat distorted in some way. A wapanese is completely obsessed with Japan, imports pocky and other such Japanese products, and often speaks Japanglish.

Someone who watches anime/reads manga is not necessarily a wapanese.

Someone who draws "chibi" art is not necessarily a wapanese.

Loving Japanese men/women is not necessarily being wapanese, it's actually a paraphilia known as xenophilia.
Yeah, I used to watch Inuyasha a lot, but it's getting a little boring and I stopped watching it.

I love chibis! They're pretty cute, if I do say so myself. And since "chibi" is the name for it, I'm not using the wapanese language of Japanglish.

I think I'm a xenophile. Although I'm black, I love Japanese/ Korean/ Filipino/ Chinese/ Vietnamese men but I could care less about imported Japanese products!

A person, or persona who unhealthily partakes in parts of Japanese culture, society or history.
