Before everything else, in the title, anime weaboo = ME.. I will add some of my stories every stage if ever I can relate to it. (I’m kinda ashamed of using the term weaboo. It feels like 2006. I just can’t think of a better word.)
Stage 01: “So deep anime introduction stage”
Introduced to any of the following anime: Cowboy Bebop*, Ghost in the Shell*, Neon Genesis Evangelion*, Naruto*, Inu Yasha*, One Piece*. In my case, I was introduced to Death Note.
*Congratulations. You are not a weaboo.
**If you’re introduced to the following anime, then you are a big gigantic weaboo.
Stage 02: “Moar anime stage”
More anime shows are introduced to you by a friend or probably while surfing in the internet*. In my case, the first anime was introduced by my friend and the anime after that were introduced to me by the almighty internet.
*Feels bad man. Looks like you’re a fat, neck-bearded roneryfag. ;_; (but in my case, i’m just a roneryfag, not fat and neckbearded. True.)
Stage 03: “Joining anime discussions because you’re a roneryfag stage”
Join anime forums and stuffs like that. Or even worse.. discussions on streaming sites after streaming and watching your anime in that site.
Stage 04: “Buyfag stage”
Buying anime merchandises and anime figures and shit.. and fapping to them. Or can be even worse.. making a blog about those anime figures and shit! (In my case, I went to that state where I badly wanted to buy one of those anime figures.. especially dat Haruhi one.. but unfortunately, I’m too poor to have one. ;_;)
Stage 05: “J-POP shit stage”
Downloading and listening (and even singing) to anime songs and shitty japanese songs. Just look at this Winamp library for example (NOT MINE! I TELL YA! IT’S NOT MINE!)
Stage 5.1: “lol is dat sum anime skin? stage”
Well now you have a japanese songs-filled Winamp, you need an anime skin of course. So you can browse the internet while listening to some shitty anime songs with an anime skin (probably a Lucky Star skin) winamp. (I remember using a K-ON skin once, I hope I can’t find the screenshot of it onlin- http://twitpic.com/e429l FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU-
Stage 06. “The anime blogging stage”
You somehow stumbled in to “THE ANI’BLOGOSPHERE” (I was planning on making an image on Paint that’s a representation of the aniblogosphere but I don’t know if it’s a good idea). I once randomly stumbled upon Kurogane’s Blog and that started my career of writing shit on a shitty blog. If I were you, I wouldn’t make an anime blog. I’m already telling you this now. Trust me. It’s not a good idea.
Stage 07. “Twittaphilia* stage” *(special thanks to IMPZ for that stupid word)
TWITTER. Yes Twitter. Well I’m basing this stages for when I become what I am now. But it’s 2010, of course EVERYONE has heard of Twitter probably from there favorite celebrities. If you’re reading this now, why not follow me at Twitter? After Twitter, of course there’s Facebook. If you didn’t went through stage 06, then you’re fine. But if you’re a blogger and you have a Facebook, then it’s bad news.. Especially if you created a fan page for your blog.
Stage 08. “The CHAN stage”
Introduced to chan boards. If you’re visiting 4chan, it’s bad news. If you’re visiting 2chan, it’s a much worse news.
Stage 09. “lol i troll u stage”
The “TROLL” Stage. This is probably only applicable to me. But if it is applicable also to you, then CONGRATULATIONS.
Stage 10. “what the shit. MOE EVERYWHERE stage” (I AM CURRENTLY HERE IN THIS STAGE)
The “this is getting boring” stage. You know, after watching some anime every shitty season, it gets a bit tiring since EVERY ANIME IN EVERY SEASON SUCKS. NOTHING BUT MOE. So you have nothing to watch anymore. Especially if you have a precious time and you’re always busy.. (like me). You already know what’s the next stage right?
Stage 11. “Goodbye anime stage”
STOPPED WATCHING ANIME for several years.. or in my case, 2 or 3 years, I forgot. But I don’t know if I can stop watching anime. I have lots of anime to still watch.. especially those CLASSIC ones. But i’m kinda lazy so shit, my life is ruined.
Stage 12. “No more anime blogging stage”
Of course, after not watching anime anymore, you’ll probably quit anime blogging. Since I think its impossible to surpass stage 10, I can’t quit anime blogging too. I remember once I made this blog, I said to myself that I won’t quit no matter what (no matter how shitty my blog is and how low my views get). And I was quite envious of those blogs that lasted for like.. 100 years. (B’AAAAAAWWWWW). And since SOMEONE thinks I’m already a loser even if I don’t quit, I still won’t quit you motherfcker. (Well I hope I can still blog starting this Monday since it’s the start of my college years. And my schedule is shit. No more free time for internet. ;_;)
Stage 13. “The almost-happy-life stage”
You grew a happy man with a happy life. No more ronery life.. having no girlfriend, just watching shitty anime and fapping to your 2D waifu. You already have a wife and a daughter.. WHO YOU NAMED AFTER YOUR FAVORITE ANIME CHARACTER. lol oh wow your life sucks. I thought you already are living a non-weaboo life. WWWWWW
Stage 14. “My life is ruined stage”
Your daughter/son grew up AND BECAME A FREAKIN’ OTAKU. Weaboo-er THAN YOU WERE! Oh God. This life is even worse. Then that daughter/son did all the stages 1-14. Then again to your grandchildren and so on………
