Now, don't get me wrong, I like my anime and manga as much as the next person. But when it's all there is to you, it's a turn-off. Does anyone get bugged out by people who may as well be a living stereotype?
I've been around those types quite a bit, it definitely makes me want to avoid making it seem like I like anything japan-related when I'm near them. Also there's just the secondhand embarrassment that comes with watching them act like they have zero awareness of themselves or their surroundings. Thank god my appearance kinda makes people think I'm just into sports or something like any other average dude.
For most of them, it's just a phase they'll eventually grow out of.
Quite honestly, though, I find their company a lot more refreshing than people who go so far out of their way to not be seen as a "weeb" that they come off as dispassionate.
I love legit weebs.
i like being in their company bc i can talk to them about things i like and enjoy and i dont have many friends like that
When you're a adult, you don't want to be around a buncha people who say nya and act like a weeb because shit is embarrassing.
Weebs aren't so bad, but neckbeards are another story. Weebs are passionate and inviting about anime. Neckbeards are mean and condescending.
I generally love to be around people who don't fit in and especially those who take pride in not fitting in, so i'm comfy with weebs. However if they are unable to talk about varied topics it gets boring soon, i have to admit. It's the same for everyone who is too passionate about something though.
i've never met one of them irl, guess i wouldn't mind. rather i hate those who can't stop saying weeaboo while they are into trash like filthy frank.
I used to be such a weeb durring middle school, like it was really really bad u_u)
