Do you guys know if there are any subcultures in Japan that are obsessed with American culture and wanting to move/learn English? Basically just like /jp/ but the opposite.
Modern American culture strikes me as particularly degenerate. As for the underlying broadly Western culture, Japan has already borrowed greatly from it, to the point that modern Japan cannot really be compared to the Japan of old.
Yeah, hanging out with one is like hanging out with someone from an mtv reality show through a japanese filter except they never turn it off.
I have a Japanese guy obsessed with American culture on my Facebook, but I wouldn't say he's like opposite /jp/. He mostly tries to poorly use American slang, which is kind of funny since he doesn't really have a good grasp of English despite only ever posting in English. He did once message me to tell me that he's started watching porn and to tell me all about his porn preferences for some reason.
theres an autistic Japanese dude at UCSD that is obsessed with indian culture, surprisingly enough.
he goes to all the indian events and club stuff, and he just stands around pretending to be indian or something
Howdy /jp/, my name is Kenichi Smith.
I'm a 27 year old Japanese Toonaholic (Cartoon fan for you foreigners). I draw cartoons and comics on my tablet, and spend my days perfecting my art and playing superior American games. (Halo, Gears of War, Call of Duty)
I train with my 1911 every day, this superior weapon can shoot straight through steel because it kicks ass, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my gun license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.
I speak English fluently, both the Midwestern and the East Coast accents, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about American history and their Constitution, which I follow 100%
When I get my American visa, I am moving to New York to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an animator for Nickelodeon or a game designer!
I own several cowboy outfits, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to America, so I can fit in easier. I keep cool to my elders and seniors and speak English as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.
Wish me luck in America!

Gomenasai, my name is Stef-Sama.
I’m a 27 year old Dutch Otaku (Anime fan for you gaijins). I mocap for a Japanese game company and spend my days perfecting my art and playing superior Japanese games. (MGS, Animal Crossing, Pokemon series)
I train with my Katana every day, this superior weapon can cut clean through steel because it is folded over a thousand times, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my sword license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.
I speak Japanese fluently, both Kanji and the Osaka dialect, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about Japanese history and their bushido code, which I follow 100%. This is of course thanks to my BA in Japanese from University of Leiden (where I did study abroad to Japan) and my master's degree also in Japanese from Tokyo university.
I own several kimonos, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to Japan, so I can fit in easier. I bow to my elders and seniors and speak Japanese as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.
Wish me luck in Japan!
I don't know about "obsessed," but a good amount of my coworkers are Japanese people that came to the US. Some liked music, sports, some to escape Japan's uptight-ness, and some just had a general "I wanna go abroad" urge for no particular reason.
I used to watch Friends and Pretty Little Liars with my sisters' roommate (stayed with them for the holidays).
Also, watched Pitch Perfect 2 with her once, and sometimes I would be in the lounge room on my laptop and she'd come in and watch it again but just skip to the singing parts. She did it several times, and sometimes I would catch her doing in when going for breakfast/toilet/etc. Pretty funny.
There's a Japanese woman in I sometimes talk to about Skyrim modding. She's obsessed with Western FPS's and her mods are dedicated to porting over gun and tactical armor models from FPS's to Skyrim.
She also considers RWBY to be the second coming of Christ which is very strange to me since she lives in the land of anime.
The world is a very strange place
Does anyone know WHY the fuck do the Japanese always pose like for a photo when you are clearly using a camera to film them (the kind of camera that is used for shooting movies).
Lioke, are they retarded or something?
I live in western Canada near the rockies where culture mostly revolves around mountain related outdoor activities. There are always many Japanese tourists at the ski resorts. This is different of course than a culture obsession but I want to mention them anyway. They are my favorite country of tourist on the slopes. Almost all are intermediate level skiers with good manners about right of way. Always have top of the line gear. Never a nuisance like some brands of tourist (americans, the french).
A lot of people on /jp/ have no people skills and can't actually speak Japanese, but pretend they do. There's a small subsection of people who have no problem getting with Japanese chicks. You can do anything if you put your mind to it.
People have been shilling for their favorite pointless Japan blog for a while now, so I'm gonna get in on the action and throw up one I think /jp/ might actually like (despite the fact that the writer fucks around basically nonstop.)
- tl;dr: most people who learned japanese in a year are full of shit
- tl;dr: japan is a total shitfest
You can get good at something if you put in the time, is what it comes down to. Most people don't truly put in the effort. It took me 2-3 years before I got really good at picking up Japanese girls, and even longer to be proficient at conversational Japanese to pick up said girls.
>I read on /jp/ that we're all successful computer programmers
I don't know why you keep forcing this shit whenever someone mentions he might not be a fucking English teacher. The vast majority of /jp/ is losers sitting in their basements or working godawful minimum wage jobs, but that doesn't mean every last person here is.
Even the author of the blog is not a fucking English teacher, he's a regular salaried worker.
It does. See http://www.ioccc.org/2013/misaka/hint.html
The key here being that a lot of the whitespace doesn't do anything (well, in this case it does, because he hid a second programming language in the whitespace, so it's actually really hard). People spend a lot of time studying how to make things like that.
Koreans are the biggest Westaboos on the planet. They should be killed and their bodies burnt. I hope Japan does not end up like them.
I have a korean chick as friend in
deviantartand I can confirm the westaboo part.
The race war thing only applies to famous and powerful persons, as Korea is a hugely despot country and common persons actually know moderation.
I know because my friend said to me she wasn't the average qt korean gal so she faces pretty hardcore bullying which goes as far as police saying she deserves harassing for not being a literal whore.
Oy man, I don't have interest for any korean gal/boy when japs and chinese are superior.
Moreso when she said she wasn't an average "pretty" korean.
We are friends because we have similar vidya tastes.
>/jp/ is dudebro now
And I said I know the gookette in Deviantart so it's not about hipster edgy games.
Are you sure you aren't just jealous about how I may have a female asian friend?
American culture is so ubiquitous that I doubt most people would even think to be particularly into it. Everybody watches American moves, listens to American music, eats American food, and learns English.
Then again there is this kind of thing, which I guess counts.
Just fuck off. A board being slow means it gets less shit per hour.
Slow boards are preferable to the oceans of shit that are the main boards. Also don't forget that there are a few /jp/-alternatives if you really need to waste your time shitposting on imageboards 24/7 instead of playing eroge or doing other Japanese related stuff. And if you're one of the few people here who still can't read moon then get off your lazy ass. Tons of untranslated gems are waiting.
>that fucking video
and here i thought i'd seen everything
Yes, it's called Japanese culture in general. In the early 1900s they started importing and watching western movies and books and wearing western clothes. This is partially why Japanese imperialists took over the country, to drive out the massive wave of foreign influence and reclaim their culture.
After they were beaten in WW2, America rewrote their constitution to a democratic one and made them adopt a western-style public schooling system.
Under the guidance and protection of America they've been importing new tech and culture ever since. China is basically Japan without the western influence.
There are a few niche subcultures who are especially focused on firearms and following the latest western music releases. Other than that, eating western foods or indulging in western entertainment is not some special thing.
He's a military otaku though. That's a whole different class. It's actually pretty cool, and is totally understandable considering Japan's attitude towards guns and militaria in general.
really sorry, but here's another pic for you
look man, just because you googled some pics of a korean ladyboy from devianart does not mean you're not a wizardly virgin yourself
you're even more pathetic than the guy who says he's a six figures earning computer programmer in japan, but something tells me you're one and the same, you cuck
Ah dammit, it's her. I think I already masturbated to the only doujin she has on HappyKoala. (The one where she wears a swimsuit and is sexed anally.)
She is so much cuter than all the other girls from I want to fuck my older brother.
It means that if you upload something that everybody will know it exists and be able to download it immediately.
>People hosted things on their own servers, for fun.
Your ethical principles are fantastic and all, but try making a practical argument.
Yes, the most successful, most popular and most influential culture all around the world. It dwarfs all other cultures into minuscule tiny bits for people to enjoy besides the 90% of American culture they live.
>Live in my mom's basement for 20 yrs old kid, so yea I do actually believe it, I've read about it on 4chan faggot. Move to your own mom's basement, then talk.
Are you serious? You seriously don't understand what reality is. Even blonde haired blue eyed white people who look like 10/10 pale in comparison to the treatment that 10/10 Japanese men get in Japanese society, you naive weaboo permavirgin loser.
Well of course I am sad, any deebly concergned citizen would be sad about young white males (manchilds) leeching off their parents' well past their 20s and living in their basements. What's worse is, that as Oregon clearly shows, male virgins eventually end up shooting actual good people because of their permanent virginity. You need to be stopped.
I live in japan and can confirm he's right
japanese think french things are cool in the same weird, fantasized way americans think japanese things are cool, though I don't think it's quite as extreme. I haven't seen evidence of some kind of "frenchaboo" or anything like that
I could totally see japanese getting tattoos of french words they don't actually know the meanings of, though.
>He thinks he's still talking to me.
Geez man, I left the thread for like three days because shitposts kill my joy but you just keep going.
Even /jp/sies can get to know legit chicks now that anybody can play pretend in the internet and women are specially needy of attention.
They live in a matriarchal society. They basically have a Ministry of Womyn's Studies which was, among other things, responsible for the policy that makes anonymity on the Internet impossible in Worst Korea (yes, South Korea) and ties all your actions to your citizen/ID card. This is also coincidentally why PC games have such big foothold there compared to widespread console games popularity in the surrounding countries - because stuff like PSN/XBox Live whatever (I don't really know and or care about these things) couldn't exist there without major changes for Koreans only. The Korean people are also incredibly shallow and materialistic and the #1 plastic surgery using country in the entire world, by a fucking mile ahead of everyone else.
Like some would probably think that the North Korea Best Korea thing is just a meme, but North Korea is literally the better country of the two and I hope Kim will nuke his southern brothers and wipe them off the face of Earth.
One of my Japanese pen pals is obsessed with western culture. He told me his dream is to have a big yard, a bunch of dogs and watch western movies and eat popcorn in his western style house.
This is American culture.
American culture is excessively large food, gigantic vehicles, guns, an obsession with jets and bombs, and an insatiable love of war and destruction.
It can be hard to see American culture because American culture is still a living culture that is more interested in the future than in the past, unlike European cultures that are mostly just built around past accomplishments and will never regain their former imperial glory.
not something a girl would post on fb
what now faggot?
Are you crazy, basement dwelling weeb? There's nothing special about that picture, congrats on finding another pic to post of this Koran ladyboy, instead of actually posting proof like I asked you to, you spineless pussy.
This guy is a brain surgeon who's father designed aircraft for the IJAAF. Specifically the Tachikawa Ki-94 I and II prototypes. He's translated all of his father's design documents and blueprints into English and seems to be a westaboo in other fields as well.
are you serious?
There are SO MANY people obsessed with American Culture we even have a fucking board for it
Tell me one reason why i have to proove you anything.
The only thing you can do is insult people and call them a weeb. That's really poor.
Think of her as a Korean ladyboy, why should i give a damn fuck?
That's the last post from me here, maybe would have posted more of her, but you faggot fucked it up. Congratulations!
>Tell me one reason why i have to proove you anything.
Well of course you don't have to prove it, but that means you're admitting that you're a faker who's illegally posting some (maybe)chicks pics on social media.
Hey, stop pressuring him faggot, do you know how hard it was to find a (maybe)girl almost kind of looked like the first two ones in the first place? How is he going to do this again?
>I could totally see japanese getting tattoos
Are you serious?
>words they don't actually know the meanings of
Thanks to kanji, elevens are really obsessive about meanings of words, especially with names.
I know a guy on FB. I added him because we regularly played COD4 sometimes. He was pretty good with a shotgun. I found out he's into American hip hop culture, posts stuff about Wiz Khalifa and all these guys. Dresses like an American hip hop guy. He's married with 2 kids and seems to be an awesome dad.
It seems most Japanese who are into 'American culture' are affiliated with hip hop or black music genres. Some girls are really into it and even try to imitate their idols, basically trying to look 'black'.
For some reason, seems there is a community that has strong interest in the Mexican cholo culture.
>It seems most Japanese who are into 'American culture' are affiliated with hip hop or black music genres
True. I know this girl and other ones in Osaka who are totally like that.
>Do you guys know if there are any subcultures in Japan that are obsessed with American culture and wanting to move/learn English?
Soon both countries will have a lot in common.
PS Don't you mean Spanish.
Recently, there's a middle-aged ugly woman coming to the Hub in Shinsaibashi every single day.
Usually she is sitting there alone, always on her phone.
She's trying to hit on almost every avarage looking white guy there.
The real creepy thing is that she probably got something like tourette, she makes weird gestures with her arm and occasionaly talks to herself. Every few minutes, when the bar is crowded, she gets up and takes a pic of everyone. I avoid going to that Hub alone for a beer since she tried to hit on me like 2-3 times...
