All right guys, let's get down to business shall we?
We're gonna do a bit of inter-blog post discussion here. I’m kinda rambling here, so apologize for this, uhhh... quality post.
Reading Kirari's post on his (uh I assumed you're a dude, correct me if I'm wrong :V) presentation, there was a brief mentioning of a certain weaboo girl who presented on - here we go - maid cafe. Upon reading that part, I thought, "uhh, okay, that's... nice", but as for the rest of the commentors? Apparently this weaboo of a girl had become the subject in most of those comments.
Later in the comments, Kirari mentioned that the girl went on to share ther story of her cosplaying as some Naruto characters. At this, I said "huh, well, sounds like those generic narutards weaboo... so now I have a firm reason to say that she sucks…" (oho, I'm a terrible person)
Now where am I going with this? Well, as I pointed out in the last post, I've only immersed myself in the otaku community for a bit (and I don't think I'm a hardcore yet) so I didn't really get where all those comments were coming from. Yeap, those comments where they were more or less “WUT” - the image of an otaku going “what the hell is wrong with you” is what I was getting as I read those comments.
So what's opinion about this? Is it a case of “don’t be a weaboo”? Or is it more of “keep your weaboo stuff to yourself”? Or, since Kirari mentioned that he doesn’t want other people to know about his obsession with the arts of the land of the rising sun so as to avoid from talking to people about it, are we reclusive otaku that don’t like to mix with normalfags and weaboo/wannabes like that?
If the issue here was about weaboo in general, in my opinion... well, it might be because I hung out with the more serious Type 2 otaku, but, boy, a few of those weaboos do annoy me. I mean, sure, you wanna use some Japanese words, fine by me (hey, I'm guilty for this too, you know), but thinking that Japan is the most sugoi country, how their stuff is the most sugoi sugoi desu, and how you wish you were born a Japanese?
If you ain't Japanese, don't act like one :V
...well have I perhaps taken that post too seriously, and missed the point entirely.
C’mon guys, throw in a couple of yens on this ‘issue’. Disagree with my take on the whole things? Think that I'm mad?
Go crazy, and don't forget to write it easy!
