Would Ты rather people call Ты a Weabo, Otaku или just plain Аниме fan?

(Picture does not have anything to do with the Вопрос other than to celebrate RWBY Volume 3...sorry.)

Okay,so I'm not gonna lie...I just found out what the word "Weabo" is recently so there's that...I'm guessing other people have been called that. Otaku,well that's pretty obvious...an upperclassman in my club/school organization who's also somewhat of an Аниме Фан actually called me an otaku when another upperclassman told him about the time I corrected her about a Болталка Чиби in Google to be Hatsune Miku (she was searching Болталка chibis to draw while we had break...),the weird thing is--and it's not to offend Аниме или it's fans,nothing like that--I felt kinda uncomfortable,I mean I like anime,heck I'd rather an Аниме character be my Профиль pic than myself but it's just that...I prefer just being called an Аниме Фан y'know? Not that I deserved being called an otaku anyway...i just watch Аниме from time to time now. Anyway what are your thoughts about it?

Аниме Ответы

The thing about Otaku is that the word has negative connotations to start with so it's ok if Ты felt offended. in Япония it just isn't a word for Аниме Фаны but the ones who let Аниме consume their lives so much that society looks down on them *think the guys who marry their подушка wives and help the growth of loliconism* weaboo is for the newbies to Аниме who think Япония is the end all of everything and think they understand the culture based only on what they know from watching Аниме despite not being interested in anything else incorporating some japanese words into their dialogue and probably have the "right way" of being an Аниме Фан in their head.... sorry this kinda went into a definition rant but yeah i like being called just an Аниме Фан too, it makes me uncomfortable when people identify themselves as otaku with the negative connotations it really has but i actually don't mind the weaboo jokes (not being called a weaboo in all seriousness but as a joke) idk i think its a fun word

Thanks for sharing a bit of trivia,also since y'know I just found out about the word "Weabo" i don't really called that...like,at all,but nonetheless I think I sorta understand your definition of that,although I do want to go and explore Japan,with или without the influence of anime. It's always been sort of a goal for me to go there with вишня blossoms in bloom. :)

I don't mind either, personally, but I do wish terms like just "anime fan" were еще common, since there are people like myself who fit neither weabo или Otaku criteria.

I call myself a weeb all the time as a joke. I mean, I was a weeb way back when I was like 11-14, but I've since grown out of it despite having my occasional weeb-ish tendencies.

I'm also not so dedicated as to call myself as an Otaku, either, in neither terms of the еще negative Japanese connotation nor the less negative English connotation. I enjoy Аниме and I'm еще likely to chose to watch an Аниме over a number of different TV shows, but I wouldn't consider it as main of an aspect of my life as a true Otaku would.

Now, there's nothing inherently wrong with being either a Weabo или an Otaku, it's just that neither term fits me and I know that there are many others in the community like that. Like you.

I agree that it should be еще common to use just the term "anime fan" или "casual Аниме fan" rather than just labelling everyone as either a weeb или an otaku.
But that's еще of a problem with people outside of the Аниме realm, I've noticed.

Well...I guess that's true. At least I know I'm not the only one...that's one of the minor things why I haven't "fanned" this club after all this time. Anyway, thanks for sharing your thoughts about it. :)
