Wapanese is a word that has been argued about many many times. It is commonly known as a white person who wants to be japanese.
Someone who watches anime, listens to japanese music and draws manga from time to time but also has a social life, bf and respects there own culture like myself can be classed as someone who has interest in the culture.

Wapanese on the other hand display some of these unhealthy obsessions:

They try to dress harajuku/lolita by applying mountains of makeup and mixing up clothes which makes them look like they are in drag or a wannabe emo.

Watches 2 episodes of an anime and instantly becomes obssessed and brags about it to everyone they know.

Overuses japanese phrases online and in real life.

On youtube they comment japanese music videos with such things as 'omgz ruki looks so kawaii <3~~!!'.

They add any random japanese people on myspace hoping to make some japanese friends and litters them with japanese phrases.

They think the terms 'visual kei' and 'oshare kei' are some kind of religion.

If someone in some way insults japan, they themselves also feel insulted.

They learn one hiragana/kanji/katakana phrase and begin drawing it all over there books/work...

They watch anime such as pokemon and think its 'uber cool'.

For the girls there idol is Gwen Stefani.

They change there names to some japanese name and tells everyone to start calling them that.

They think making the peace sign makes them look japanese.

Anything that looks remotely japanese they go mental for, even if its a wall scroll that is in chinese they still go mad for it.

I could go on for ages but these are the things i have witnessed in the past in the 'wapanese'.
Guy: Hey just finished watching fushigi yugi, its pretty immense, what do you think?
Wapanese: OMGZ thats like THE BEST ANIME EVER, so kawaiii! isnt tamahome so uber smexi!
Guy: Errr, what did you think to the ending?
Wapanese: Well, err i think you need to fill me in, bad memory you see :)
Guy: You havent watched it have you...
Wapanese: Yeh well but its still proper awesomeeeee!!

Think a white guy/girl who tries to be Japanese. Symptoms include, but are not limited to:

Unhealthy obsession with:
Japanese culture
Japanese pop culture and trends
Anime

Generally, a "wapanese" person is 13-16 years of age, socially inept, and incredibly obnoxious.
Some wapanese guy came at me with a bokken the other day.

Caucasian people who try desparately to imitate all things Japanese.
They are also the same type of people who treat a person's culture like a dollar-store rag.
Dragonball Z zealots and Final Fantasy addicts are perfect examples of the Wapanese.

Real Japanese girl: What a loser!

insult regarding someone (usually white) who is a fan of japanese culture including anime fans. although people inside japanese fandom make distinctions between who is really wapanese and who isn't, the common perception to those outside of fandom is that anyone inside this fandom is open to the insult.
anime lover: I'm not really wapanese because I'm not obsessed with all things japanese.
japophile: I'm not really wapanese because I study japanese history instead of just using japanese words in conversation.
baka baka: I'm not really wapanese just super-kawaii because I'm not obsessed with japanese food.
pocky man: I'm not really wapanese because I don't pay harajuku girls to follow me around.
gwen stefani: I'm not really wapanese because it's not like I pay my harajuku girls to talk to me... right? heyyy, where is everybody? Oh, whew, at least Angel, Music, Love and Baby are still here.
