Um, what is a weeaboo?
Someone who likes things from japanese culture a bit too much, like using stupid words such as "Kawaii" in a english sentence.
^this is the extreme version. Using Kawaii in a sentence doesn't make a weeaboo, though some people think it does.

It's the same as calling someone a nazi if they use a german word in a sentence.


And I'm basically fed up with people saying anime is for children, "becuz iz a cartoonz. Lulz u watch cartoonz nub u shud wach moviz with gunz and rap and bloodz lololol that iz adult olo"

I can point to MILLIONS of anime series not for kids.

Elfen lied
One piece
Naruto
BLeach
Tengen toppa gurren lagann
Love hina
Mahou sensei negima
FMA
Blood+
Fairy tail
The .hack series
Cowboy bepop
Shakugan no shana
Excel saga
puni puni poemi
Mahou shoujo lyrical nanoha


ANd tons and tons of anime are NOT for children. They deal with death, there's blood, tehre's ecchi, there are serious issues like abandonment, insanity, mortality, and so many other mature themes.


Saying anime is for kids, is like saying "Batman begins" is for 3-5 year olds. Retarded, unnecessary, and completely assidiotic.

Oh geez, where do I begin with this post?

Firstly, a weeaboo is, as SA2 posted, somebody that obsesses over Japan. And they do have a tendency to use Japanese words in otherwise english sentences that are totally pointless and out of place. Now, I ask, why would you use the word kawaii in place of an english word if you were not a weeaboo? That's doesn't seem to make much sense to me.
We completely disagree on this then. If you japanese culture references, japanese history references, japanese city references, and more than 3 japanese words in a sentence, then you're obviously obsessed with Japan.

Using a SINGLE japanese word in a sentence does not make you obsessed with Japan. It means you think the word is cool/awesome/cute/win/whatever. IT doesn't mean the country is awesome.

Same as you, I'm not trying to be mean. THe following might SOUND mean, but please understand that I'm not intentionally trying to be.

Lets use your logic then. The word computer. Everyone in denmark uses it. Everyone in sweden uses it. Everyone in norway uses it, hell I bet a lot of countries use it. Does that mean everyone is obsessed with America, or any other english speaking country?

No. Ergo, flawed logic.

But more importantly, the second part of your post. I'm not going to go through each one individually, but most of what you posted are shonen, which means, well, the target audience is boys, as opposed to men. That's not to say anime is for kids, though, that's like saying TV is for kids because there are kid's shows on it.

And sorry if I sound like I'm being mean, I'm really not trying to be. The main thing is it bugged me that you said Naruto isn't made for kids. <_<
We're talking standards here.

In japan, 70% of anime is made for teens, or kids, that parts true. However, because the japanese have a different culture, they're used to things like blood, death and borderline **** on the T.V.

Just as an example, american kids aren't. Because their parents have the flawed logic that "If the kids see blood, they will become serial killers and murder over 1000000000 people."

Anime is for japanese kids. If just parents in the western world weren't so god damn sensitive, I can agree to some point that anime would indeed be for kids.

Most anime isn't very good.

Just like most cartoons, most TV in general, most music, most manga, most books of any kind, and most movies most media also aren't isn't very good.

Sweeping generalizations such as "all _____ sucks" get no attention from me at all. I can't think of any category/classification/etc. that can be put in that blank and make the statement as a whole sound reasonable.

1. I can't really say, as I don't live in Denmark, Sweden, or Norway, so correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm going to assume the word has been more or less assimilated into common speech if so many people say it. This would be the same as using the word tsunami in English. It isn't an English word, but it's not abnormal to be using it. Kawaii, however, is not something used anyone I've ever met that...well, isn't a weeaboo.

2. Naruto is completely uncensored (I think >_>) in America and still has a rating of TVPG. Several of the other shows you listed have a TV14 rating, but my main point was against Naruto. I agree for the most part though.

What's censored? Maybe some of the stuff Jiraiya says, but I don't know what else. <_<

All emo music sucks.

Rites of Spring and Sunny Day Real Estate kick ass. Other than that, the genre is garbage.

There are exceptions, therefore the "All emo music sucks" statement fails.

1. It has, but it's the same thing. It's a word that isn't from ones own language. Okay, perhaps bad example... lets move back to my first example, with german. Was John F. Kennedy a nazi? He used german words in his speech. "Ich bien ein berliner" (Spelt rongg). He used the words Ich, bien and ein, words taht aren't integrated in english. If kawaii makes you a weeaboo, then Kennedy must have been a nazi times... three.

Again, not trying to be mean.. just using harsh examples <_<

2. Okay, Naruto isn't the most adult anime. But it's more serious than stuff like Captain planet, power rangers, Barney the damn dinosaur and other kid stuff.

And as to my knowledge, it isn't fully uncensored... they don't show most of the blood. You see a tiny trickle of blood, but in the original there was more blood.
