Top definition
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.

Someone who is obsessed with Japan/Japanese Culture/Anime, etc. and attempts to act as if they were Japanese, even though they're far from it. They use Japanese words but usually end up pronouncing them wrong and sounding like total assholes. You can find alot of these faggots clogging up the forums of Gaia Online, hanging out in the international aisle of the supermarket, or crowding the manga section of your local bookstore. Synonym of wapanese.
I told that weeaboo girl over there that Inuyasha sucks. She slapped me across the face and proceded to cuss me out in Japanese.

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.

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.

A word filter for the image board 4chan.org that replaces the word wapanese. Originates arbitrarily from a Perry Bible Fellowship comic strip wherein a man was paddled by a crowd chanting "Weeaboo! Weeaboo!"
"Those Wapanese kids think Japan is so great."
