Not a weeaboo stamp by Rhoey Not a weeaboo stamp by Rhoey
Come on, people, letīs be reasonable here: liking Japanese stuff doesnīt necessarily warrant the "Weeaboo" label. Think about it: how many people do you know, or know of, who enjoy movies? Probably quite a few. Now, are ALL of those people completely obsessed, to the point of calling their kids Frodo or Leia, constantly quoting films, do nothing but watch movies all day, and dress up as Indiana Jones to work? NO! The same thing applies to us "japan nerds". In my case, I can most definitely say that itīs a coincidence that a lot of the things I like happen to be from Japan. I do enjoy Japanese video games, comics, artwork, culture, food, architecture, clothing, and some customs. But Iīm one of those casual fans, who can enjoy all these things, and still become annoyed to no end with people who call themselves "Otaku", feel the need to complete their sentences with Japanese words, fawn over fictional characters as if they were real live human beings, and most annoying of all: pretend to be Japanese. Probably because I find it immature and embarrassing, and boy am I glad Iīve never been that obsessed to begin with!

Any thoughts, opinions, ideas? Feel free to express them. But keep the discussion civil and mature, please, and try to make sense. And read the artist's comments before you do so! If you only come here to troll or flame, or even threaten me, rest assured: I won't hide your comment(s), but I WILL flag them as spam and in most cases won't even bother to reply. If you don't like what I have to say, ignore it; no need to flame and insult. I value my time enough to not waste it on pointless frivolous conversations...I hope you value yours too. Thank you.

What's a 'Weeaboo', you ask? Google it; you'll find plenty of articles about it.

Also, here's two humorous pieces on it:

Do you have a version of this stamp that just says: "I like anime, japanese comics, and video games." ?? I'm having a randomly hard time finding a simple "I like anime" stamp that doesn't express anything else.. Or perhaps refer me to a few?
Rhoey Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2016   General Artist
I don't have different versions of this stamp, sorry. I'm not really on DA as much as I used to be, so I don't know. But if there isn't one like that, perhaps you could be the first to upload one!:) It's actually pretty easy to make stamps, especially if it's not animated. There's tons of tutorials on how to make them. Sorry I can't be of any more help.

Ah I see. Well thank you for getting back to me about it! ^-^ I haven't gotten into stamp making yet, but maybe now I just might. Haha, thanks! =D

If you like anime = Alright
If you get offended by everything that isn't anime = Failed Abortion
Weeaboos are people who overuse/abuse japanese words,are obsessed with japan,want to move to japan,etc.
Otakus are people who love japanese games,anime,etc.

I absolutely hate when people say that they're the same,you know?

I admit,I have a habit of saying the japanese word 'Dattebane',which comes from Naruto Shippuden,and is the trademark word of Kushina Uzumaki's,and I often think of the japanese translation for a sentence,word,etc but I never abuse them.

I really like this stamp,though.

I honestly don't care if I'm called a weeaboo for liking anime, manga, and Japanese video games. I just shrug it off and move it.

I don't get why the word "Weeaboo" is necessary...
Supercoco142 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I like Yokai Watch, and Listen to Vocaloid sometimes, but I also like other stuff too, and get annoyed when people mix a bit of jappanese in their engish speech (Example: Hello minn'a! and This is so Kawai desu I might just himei!*that means scream BTW*)

I also will admit I have an english name(I wont tell you which), and come from america. (I really dont like it when people think they have jappanese names.)

Agreed and I get rather mad at weeaboo's aswell,though I've heard ''Otaku '' being used more and more as a insult then Weeaboo in recent years anyway

I think weeaboo is an insult but "weeb" is not

no, no. Learning jappanese is great, and doesn't make you a weeabo whatsoever. What WEEABOC do is mix jappanese with english to get the almighty weeabo language.
Rhoey Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2015   General Artist
Well, technically, you're a weeaboo. But at least you're actually immersing yourself in the culture and learning the language. Haha. I'm messing with you, I don't make the rules, enjoy whatever you like and have fun! :)

Weeaboo is a person that neglects their own culture completely and only revolves around japanese culture, so i think you're good :)

i am japanese but i don't know people say that?

people keep saying i am not 
AwesomeC99 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yep! I hate weeaboos personally, but theres nothing wrong with enjoying an anime time to time :3 I'm not too into anime, but i did enjoy Attack on Titan and Soul Eater for a while. Its just when they get obsessed, fap to hentai, and call a fictional character their "waifu" is when they start to piss me off >~<
Rhoey Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2015   General Artist
Attack on Titan is definitely one of the better anime out there. 

I personally don't really care what people do in their bedroom. If they want to fap to hentai, or cosplay while doing it, then that's their prerogative. So long as they don't annoy me about it, we're fine.

My friends and I call each other and our favorite characters 'waifu', as a joke. If it's all in good fun, and people have some self-awareness and don't take these things too seriously, I'm generally pretty okay with these things.
AwesomeC99 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I can agree with you, I don't usually care that much either. But I had this one friend who shoved her henTai amines down my throat, and wore a Hatsune miku cosplay to school on multiple occasions...

grimm-girlie Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2015
Lol and "otaku" means basically "loser with no life" in Japanese, so when weeaboos call themselves "otaku", they are insulting themselves

grimm-girlie Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2016
I've seen it used as an insult before, but maybe I misread. In either case, otaku = weeaboo, and I am a filthy weeaboo

I love old anime and new anime, but I found a fondness for old anime like Ruroni Kenshin and Yu Yu Hakusho but am I a weeb? NO. I just like anime, manga and games. That is all. 90s/Early 00's anime FTW!!
dabomb29 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2015
 I've seen some weeaboos who seem to believe that they are an anime character. I watched  Tekkaman Blade, Ronin Warriors, Sailor Moon, and Pokemon back in the day when liking anime wasn't cool. I don't like Full Metal Alchemist though but there are other modern animes from the 2000's and 2010's that I really like. I'm a fan of Disney, Marvel, DC, Winx Club, Warner Bros, Xena, and American video games. I'm not limited to only one thing.
