What I read:


KIMOI. REAL OTAKUS WEIRDOS, OUT-OF-THE-ORDINARY OTAKU IS EXCESSIVENESS. NEVERTHELESS, NOT ASHAMED OF WHAT THEY ARE.

Otaku is shorthand for Asian takeout (not meals on wheels or some 33rd cousin of someone from Tacoma, WA). Weeaboo is something Australian, probably an Oz recreation vehicle manufacturer aka US's Winnebago. I like the term yahoo, it's a kinder, gentler sense of derision descriptor than cracker or trailer trash.

Otaku: a Japanese word equivalent to 'geek'. Refers to someone who have a relatively large interest in a certain subject. There are anime otaku, manga otaku, train otaku, and just about any other otaku you can think of. Otaku are generally seen as being socially inept and obsessed with their respective area of interest.

Weeaboo: a derogatory English term used to refer to westerners (usually white) who express an extreme interest in Japanese anime, manga, and other areas of Japanese pop culture.

Weeaboo is distinct from Japanophile, which is not necessarily a derogatory designation, and refers to a person who holds a love or fascination for Japan as a whole, including its history, culture, and cuisine, and not just its pop culture.

Otakus are people with a weird obsession with anime, weeaboos are westerners that purposely try to make themselves look obsessed because they think it'll make them Japanese.

I play american video games, silly people missing out.
I don't watch American television shows mainly because i cant stand the way everything is over dramatic. But i would say im definitely not a weeaboo. I think in the way of technology goes Japan is way better then anywhere else. But yea im no weeaboo hehe

The only difference is that a weeaboo is non-Japanese.

Everything else is exactly the same.

You seem to have this weird idea that in Japan, technology is awesome everywhere. It's not you know? No robots walking around the streets, or holographic adverts everywhere. I guess taxi doors open automatically, but that's about all I can come up with.

If i thought robots walked around id have to shoot myself, But i just mean with the gadgets and things would be cool to see. Im not one of the those people who think its the best place to be, just that side of things intrigues me
