A person who retains an unhealthy obsession with Japan and Japanese culture, typically ignoring or even shunning their own racial and cultural identity. Many weeaboos talk in butchered Japanese with the 8 or so words they know (i.e. kawaii, desu, ni chan). While weeaboos claim to love and support Japanese culture, counter intuitively, they tend to stereotype Japanese culture by how it appears in their favorite anime, which can be safely assumed to be offensive to the Japanese.
If you love and respect Japanese culture and your own, you are not a weeaboo.
Merely liking anime or wanting to learn Japanese does not make you a weeaboo.

Shortened as "weeb".

A person foreign to Japan (mainly westerners) who develops an extreme obsession to "Japan", believing it to be identical to its anime depiction.

Note: Anime fans or self-referred otakus are not weeaboos

A non japanese person who basically denounces their own culture and calls themselves japanese. They try to learn japanese through the anime they watch and usually end up pronouncing it wrong and looking like a complete idiot.

KEEP IN MIND: that a non-japanese person can like the culture, watch anime, speak the language and RESPECT THE CULTURE, while still keeping in touch with there own. Which keeps them from being a Weeaboo, japanophile, ect.
Weeaboo's basically disrespect the culture and make complete asses of themselves

A weeaboo is a non-Japanese person who is obsessed with Japanese culture. They frequently denounce their own culture, and speak frequently about Japanese culture being superior to others in various ways. Although a weeaboo does not HAVE to be an anime fan, they almost always are. Keep in mind that one can watch anime, and really enjoy it, speak Japanese, and like Japanese culture WITHOUT being a weeaboo, as long as they do not WORSHIP Japanese culture, and abandon or denounce their own.

Weeaboo symptoms include: Having a katana collection, owning an anime body pillow/waifu, denouncing your own culture, and wearing traditional Japanese clothing.
"Holy shit! Did you see the new episode of Naruto yesterday? It's becoming so Americanized now, and all the casuals are watching it!"

A person that is not Japanese themselves (mostly on groups) who think that Japan is the most best countries in the world, and disrespect their own culture and country. They also believe that when you watch little bit of anime, you will be able to speak japanese, which they suck fucking alot on speaking it. They also attempt to do "anime cosplays" with freaky costumes and it can be unhealthy.

NOTE: You are not a weeaboo, if you like Japan, and respect it's culture and stick with your own country traditions, and culture. You can watch anime and hentai, if you like and that would not make you a weeaboo. You'll become weeaboo if you believe Japan and everything coming from Japan is best than others, and forget and disrespect your own country and it's culture + traditions.
Weeaboo kids: Papa, papa! Are we kawaii? If you say no, then you're a baka!
Dad: Speak like normal people or otherwise I'm gonna bring the belt!

A non-Japanese person that either considers themselves Japanese, or wishes they were. Often confused with the word otaku which in Japanese is usually referring to a geek, while in English it usually means someone is obsessed with anime, unlike a weeaboo, who is not only obsessed with anime, but the whole entire culture. They are known to use Japanese words in the middle of English sentences, and they are hated by society.
Weeaboo: Konnichiwa Sarah-chan! How did you do on that test, desu?

Sarah: Don't be such a weeaboo.

Someone who's so into anime that it's embarrassing to even be around them. They most likely will be into loli hentai and want to be the next hokage.
