      +urouro niwa :)) It must be a real bless to have been able to find a home away from home and settle there, the case of which, like you said, most likely wasn't what he meant by the so-called "weeaboo." Genuinely putting in effort to assimilate oneself into a society, learning about its culture, language, lifestyle, whatnot etc is not what it means. In short, imagine some ppl acting like anime characters, ninjas or something and thinking "omg now this is ReAl CulTure watashi wa So NipponJin!" without actually informing/educating themselves whatsover on what it's like in the country and the actual multiplicities of its culture in reality. Like being interested in the US only for McDonald's. Also, otaku, aka anime/ game/ manga fans, does not equal weeaboo, though on a side note at some point otaku still hasn't stripped off its own stigma associated with antisocialness and stuff, to a certain extent; it wasn't (and maybe still isn't) a term ppl dare to throw around introducing themselves without weirdness. While the definition of weeaboo's pretty much mauled, as mentioned in the vid, it's not synonymous with the anime community.

      To ppl genuinely not with it down the thread... Hello? Finish the vid and you'll get this one, like literally?? This was upped in 2018 and they only knew each other slightly before that, ntm the fact that as of the recording of this he wasn't even subbed to Joey! He couldn't have loved "The Animation Man" "for years." God, this is an innocuous joke. No labor involved here in getting👏a👏clue👏.

    I use Hello Talk (just for fun, I've been eng/jpn bilingual for 25 years) and there's a self-acclaimed weeaboo that I know there. I feel sorry for him because it's like he hates his identity.
    I also had an Americaboo step father from age 15 and it sucked. He always used us only to practice English. Always angry too. I always suspected him of being a hermaphrodite. That temper.

I'm working on the language to become an English teacher but how can I jump start my experience in japan?

    There's more good and geniuine artist in every single music genre right now than there ever have been. There's just orders of magnitude more music coming out now than there used to be. If you can't find current music you like you haven't looked hard enough for the right rabbit hole to dive into. I check out new artists every couple of day and the genre completely changes every couple of months. It's true though that the mainstream in any genre is riddled with garbage.
