Heh.. One thing I've been accused of is imitating an anime girl voice. I speak in a really low voice. I don't know if I have a high-pitch voice, but my voice is very small.. And a lot of people think I'm doing this on purpose and I'm forcing my voice to sound like this. I really dislike being misjudged that way. And I'm not saying this to justify myself, this is my real voice. T_T

I agree with Mockingbird's pilot. I think it's mainly annoying when the person is using a word they don't know the meaning of, but I still take it with humor when someone I know does this. I personally don't see the use of complaining about it. ^^;; I honestly don't see why it's so annoying, either. Maybe it might seem a lot more annoying when you talk to someone who does this online than when you hear someone actually say it IRL..

One thing I forgot to mention is one of my friends. He's a language freak and he's currently learning Japanese, so he often blurts out Japanese words or sentences. I've heard him shout "Baka!" or "Nani!?" many times.

Before I met him, I used to think I would be weirded out if I heard someone say this IRL, but I really wasn't to be honest. I just don't think people should be judged that way; I mean.. A lot of people have judged me because I use Japanese words on my screen names, or because I use anime faces. That's the second thing that "isn't cool" with anime elitists. :P Anime faces. I've been picked on a lot because I use anime faces, but I think it's a stupid thing to judge someone on. It's just my opinion though.. ^_^;; I'm not trying to sound all holier-than-thou either. Just saying how I feel about the whole issue.

And like I said earlier, it's not "cool" anymore to use Japanese in sentences or shout out Japanese. If you go in a chat and do it, there will always be some older [?] person who will start picking on you about it and subtlely saying you're stupid. It's probably the same thing in real life, but I wouldn't know since I don't know a lot of big anime fans IRL.

You too?

My mother screams at me every time I use an english word while speaking french. It doesn't happen often, but when it happens, it's annoying. It might be because she's a litterature teacher and a writer. _

...And we go on topic again

personally I find it irritating enough in a post...say it in RL = be afraid, be very afraid.

Me, I use an english word once in a while when I'm talking, that's completely normal cuz I only use it when I can't find the right dutch word in my own language for a sec.

Once last year though I was day dreaming, something funny happened and I was about to say 'lol' in RL !! I said "l.." that scared the crap outta me.

but I joined this forums yesterday, Ill get used to these japanese stuff.

Ugh....i said lol today...i hit myself hard for that.

THere are these anime-gurls at our school, read nothing but yaoi and have a theory that EVERYONE in the anime world is gay..cant be helped considering what all she reads and talks to me and every other word is a japanese word deperately crammed into her sentence. When i pointed it out to her today she went psycho and started calling me an anime-wannabe and stupid and ran away imitating a high pitched anime voice.....yea..

Heh.. I know the type you're talking about. ^^;; I find them annoying too, I have to admit.. But it's mainly because a lot of people assume I'm that type of girl. Since I'm a big anime fangirl, most people assume that I read yaoi and that I'm obsessed with bishonen but actually it's the complete opposite. I never ever read yaoi, I've never written a yaoi fanfic, and I don't even like the bishounen type. The guys I like are the opposite of that..

What annoys me about them is that they are the type of people who are prone to becoming elitists.. I mean, a lot of people who bash people who use Japanese or anime faces used to do it themselves. It's just that, to make themselves look smarter, they changed. I guess this is why I tend to avoid anime or cosplay crowds. In every subculture [ if you can call anime or cosplay a subculture.. ] there's a lot of elitist people. x.x

But I admit.. I don't like the reputation I have as an anime fangirl. ._.; I won't change or try to make myself look smarter or watch less anime because of this, but it still makes me kinda sad that I'm categorized this way.

Heh, y'ouch!
Man that's a weird experience Me I ignore the fact that I watch anime in RL. Not that I'm embarassed, but no one watches.
There's no anime club around here in a 50 km radius

PS. what does 'yaoi' mean?

Is there some anime slang dictionary or something out there? ; )
Cause I didn't catch half you just said.
Anyways, if that 'yaoi and bishounen' stuff isn't true, let people know right ; )

hmm...by reading these posts, it seems a lot of anime viewers in the States speak nonsensical Japanese...

I wonder if I should go to one of those "anime conventions" in the States that I've been hearing about and see them for myself...

*raises hand*
Im a yaoi fangirl -_- I wont try and defend it either

I rarely use japanese in my speech though..just because I know I'll sound stupid and also because I dont really know anyone around where I live who watches anime... so it would not only be horribly out of context but I would just confuse them. Ill be a geek at the japanese resturaunt and order Hamachi instead of Yellow tail..but thats the extent of my abilities

As for other people using it, it doesnt really annoy me..or more accurately, I havent really met anyone who uses it annoyingly.

Just like the English that's used in animes tends to be fairly grammatically poor. (Not that I'm insulted because of it or anything.)

As far as coming to an American anime convention: Come on over! The more the merrier.

im sorry, i wasnt saying it as a bad thing or stereotyping/generalyzing ppl who read yaoi to act a certain way-- its just that i was just saying she read it alot to try and get ppl to understand her philosophy on anime

Pffft. Has anyone ever told you the Japanese do just as many stupid things as the Americans? Except maybe us English. We do everything badly. Except walkers crisps. I've traveled round the world and sampled crisps (US= "chips") for across the world, and walkers is clearly the best. English Snacks > *
Atleast America invented Bill Gates....

Damn, that was random. Come to a con set in England. If might hear some "London slang" -_-
Which is even worse/more funny.

Whoa, guess they figured theres another forum other then the naruto one. And I said *most*, but it seems you don't know what I was refering too. Maybe if you took such offense to my statement, you fall into what I said, eh? Wow, careful I hurt your feelings by something that means nothing in life, are you that easily offended? Ps2 fanboys suck, as do Xbox ones and gamecube ones, they ruin whats good about all those things, but should they take it to heart? Grow up kid.

heres some definitions of 'fanboy' for you, and trust me, its not something good. Its not a 'true fan' of something, read on.....

DEF:
1.One who is obsessed with something and thinks people who don't like it are inferior.

2.somebody who devotes more than a 40th of their life to something and regards it as gods gift. They will be so devoted that even when u do finally convince them that its bad or horribly wrong, they will still keep their dedication. ignorance is bliss

3. Incredibly insecure and pathetic as the only thing he has to stand up for is what video game system he prefers (replace game system with anything you want to refer too)

and a simple def:

4. Person with no sense of kickass and sucking, or right and wrong, because to him, his favorite thing is always the best.


Okay, now, if you fall into any of those, by all means, my comment was towards you and I hope its burned into your mind and you rot the rest of your life watching your precious naruto.....now IF IT DOESN'T apply you, don't think anything of it, it was towards the people the def 'fanboy' applies to, Hope you don't take offense from that.

BTW, I LIKE Naruto......how you like them apples eh?! Harsh words coming from a fellow 'fan' eh? (note: not 'fanboy')

*jumps into that spanky new flamesuit*

I watch Naruto too and I think I just might be a "fanboy", as you call it. Is there some way of seeing whether or not I'm a fanboy? I seem to match your definitions...

1) I think everybody is inferior, regardless of their likes and dislikes.

2) I am very ignorant.

3) I am both insecure and pathetic, though not as much as anyone else for they are inferior to me.

4) My favorite thing is the best thing for me.

What about all the bad katakana English (e.g., kurabu = club, wandafuru raifu = wonderful life) Japanese people inject into their speech?
