I do. Man I think theyre culture is so cool, I mean they got Anime, Manga, they make the best video games plus the girls are cute. I also think the buildings look pretty cool too. It sucks being a guy from usa, I wish i was born japanese. They are so lucky. What about you guys?

No. I wish I were me.

Not at all. Can't see the fascination with the culture either....
#5 Posted by SuperNovaftw (2636 posts) -

No. Most of the people in their anime arent even Japanese..

#6 Posted by jim_shorts (7320 posts) -

I think you have an overly idealistic view of their culture.

It's pretty fun and peculiar, but I honestly can't see myself being part of it. It's so annoying that it can get on my nerves. I'd happily take a two month vacation to Japan, though.

Nope.

You realise that you an enjoy all of that stuff as a white guy from the USA, right? And no, I'm quite happy being what I am. I do like Japanese food and games, but I wouldn't want to live there.

I have a cousin of mine that sometimes starts to make anime like face and speak Japanese... I'm not sure if to laugh at him or fell sad for him.

I like Japanese culture and all, but anime freaks and people obsessed with Japan get on my nerves!

Yeah I'd love to go someday because some parts of Japan look beautiful and the cities seem like they'd be fun. I don't wish I was Japanese though

I admire many things about past and present Japanese culture. However, from various sources I am led to believe that racism and womanizing is very prevalent in Japan. I do not know how accurate this is, and I generally dislike generalizations . . . Anyone have insight?

From what I've researched, they're not so much racist as they're prejudice. It's expected in most Asian cultures. I was going to study in Thailand, but I decided not to... that's definetly a racist country.

Nope, can't say that I do.

#19 Posted by sonicare (53485 posts) -

#24 Posted by tenaka2 (17040 posts) -

Sumo wrestlers are hot so that is one thing in favor.

#25 Posted by Lonelynight (30041 posts) -
also, what's stopping your from enjoying their anime, girls. video games and architecture. It's not like you are going to enjoy them more simply by being Japanese, in fact I think you might not like them as much as you do now.
#26 Posted by PWSteal_Ldpinch (1208 posts) -

Japanese people don't get laid.

Hell no. Japanese people are probably begging to be different nations

#28 Posted by -Unreal- (24544 posts) -

I don't think weeaboos admit it. I've seen lots of people around the internet that pretend to be Japanese. It's really weird and a bit creepy. People on youtube writing in japanese and posting videos with japanese text (with poor google translation) usually relating to JRPGs or anime, people that play games like ni no kuni with the japanese voice over despite there being excellent English voice overs and people on Skyrim Nexus that have some Japanese name or anime name that makes skins of weird weeaboo anime characters, which usually look like some strange large-eyed young girl wearing a tiny skirt and carrying a massive sword.

#35 Posted by KingKinect (540 posts) -

No I like myself to much to want to be anything else. Japanese should be happy with themselves and anyone else with themselves also. There is no good in wishing you were someone else or being jealous of your fellow man.

Lol I was just playing. Props for not getting your panties in a twist. 

#37 Posted by K-E316 (1651 posts) -

Nope. Like someone else said, you don't have to be Japanese to enjoy that stuff. Hell, I never really enjoyed anything Japanese besides my PS3. And Japanese girls wouldn't go out with another asian guy if they had other options. :P

 

And this is by far the most one sided poll I've ever seen. :lol:
