No, I don't collect animu figurines! What kind of weeb do you think I am?

Dude, I showed my mom that anime last night and she finished the whole series in a day. I created a weeb.

Plural of weeb which is the monosyllabic contraction of weeaboo (aka wapanese).
Person A: Have you heard of this new site? It's called

Person B: Yeah, why would you even go on there though? It's filled with weebs who pretend they know Japanese culture but don't even know enough of the language to browse the real thing.

Different from weeaboo but are always misplaced in the same category as them.
A weeb is someone who respects and really likes to learn about Japan, the culture and the language, likes anime and manga, but will act like a weeaboo sometimes just to make fun of real weeaboos and make fun of themselves for how indulged they are in Japan and how they are always misinterpreted as the real cancer weeaboos.

They will say stuff like "that's so kawaii desu ne chan" in the whitest accent but only as a joke, knowing that isn't real Japanese, unlike weeaboos who might say something like that on a daily basis and think their Japanese is sugoi.

They also know Japan is a good country, but also has faults. They don't forget their real roots and are prideful of who they actually are, but are still interested and love Japan and it's culture and language.
weeaboo: THIS WAS THE BEST ANIMU EVER IT WAS SO PERFECT! i cant w8t til I move to nihon. every1 will love me because im just like them!! i can speak nihongo so desu and I've never tried japanese food except sushi but I LUV SUSHI and i no ill love japanese food because it all just looks so oishii!! o i need to call jennifer chan to tell her about this awesome MAYNGA.

Oh look a new vocaloid song. who needs eigo lyrics? give me the romaji, ill totally survive in japan if i can read these. uggghhh why is everything in nihon so PERFECT!?

weeb: This anime was so good! In my opinion, it could have been better. There were some super cheesy stuff in there like wtf, definitely not the best , but it was a good watch. Y'know, I've been listening to this song for a year and just now realized the only thing I understood is doki LMFAO I'm such a weeb. To be honest though, I've been teaching myself kana and I'm super proud of how quick I learned it. I still have such a long way to go before I can actually understand Japanese but I can understand some words and phrases and might be able to do some childish small talk in Japanese. Oh yeah, I should call Jennifer, she might be interested in this new manga. the guys in it are so IKEMEN CHAN YO NE DESU they make my kokoro doki so hard. omg lol i think i just gave myself cancer.

Did you read this whole thing? damn ありがとうございます!

Commonly referred to as weeaboo or wapanese
If you have to lie about watching/liking anime, you will be considered a Weeb - same goes for hentai
Can be thought as the same thing as a full weeaboo
Most weebs are usually called Zach
*Random dude gets called out for liking a post on Facebook that is only a picture of hentai*
"I'm not a weeb for liking the post, I just found the comments funny but didn't want to like them"

often confused with weeaboo, it is someone who likes japan, the culture, language, and anime respectfully and doesn't wish to be Japanese, but because they like japan and the language and like to learn about it so much they like to make fun of themselves by comparing themselves to real weeaboos and will say Japanese words like a weeaboo would, but as a joke and not seriously.
weeaboo: that's so kawaii desu sugoi chan!! my nihongo is so good I wish I could leave my house and live in my natural habitat in Japan !!!
weeb: that's so kawaii desu sugoi chan!! lol ew i think i just gave myself cancer from saying that

A teasing yet endearing insult generally used to deprecate one's friends; derived from the term weeaboo. It has come to be used to describe many different types of nerd.
"You're such a weeb, Michael."
"Jeremy was nerding out about that one obscure webcomic, what a weeb."
