I often don't even watch 6-8 episodes a day. Sometimes none, sometimes 1-3, sometimes 6-12. But every single day?

what do you guys think?

I think, I knew people who wasted more money on cigarettes than me on manga. They waste much money on a long term suicide, I read stories and spend money on my hobby at least.

unfortunately it is too late for you. the hallmark of addiction is when it starts to interfere with other parts of life negatively, and if you spend so much money that you consider yourself broke, then...

Watching anime and reading manga and buying manga doesn’t make you a weeaboo, as long as you don’t denounce your own culture and you are fully aware of Japan and it’s economy (being fully aware of its oppressive economy and society and not assuming that Japan is some kind of utopia) than you are fine. Once you start doing that then maybe you need to take a step back and reevaluate yourself.

No, a weeb is someone who worships Japanese culture as superior to other cultures. What you are becoming is an avid consumer of anime and manga, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Honestly, what does it matter? As long as you're taking care of yourself and investing time for your physical and mental health, I think there's nothing wrong with watching 8-9 episodes a day. Being insecure about your hobby only shows how big of a deal you want to maintain a image you're entitled with, and waste time to people that don't even matter.

Well, it's only the beginning, do this for 5 years and then you're allowed to call yourself a weeb!

Nah, you're not even close.

You could very well become one though.

Just balance your life and hobbies, and don't glorify Japan.

watching anime and reading/buying manga a ton isn't something that makes you a weeb, just a huge otaku, i mean i'm the same way there. even having a room full of memorabilia is ok. it's when you start using some japanese words you pick up in every sentence and dressing up like characters all the time, trying to sound 'kawaii', buying fake katana's and being one with the 'i have the power of god and anime on my side' kid etc etc that you become a weeb.


Tell me, what is this bright side of life that you speak of?

New comers tend to get so hook so easy and tries to consume animanga as possible. So, I think you're becoming an otaku, not a weeb. Unless your glorifying japan at every part while being distasteful to your own culture/country, then you're weeb.

You're an anime fan. At a certain point you might become a weeb or an otaku.

Just don't say you're an otaku on these forums or you'll get ripped to shreds.

Definitely not at this point. You're just new to anime from what it looks like so you are introduced to lots of really good anime to be hyped about. I don't consider myself a weeb because I watch casually, on and off. 6-8 episodes a day isn't crazy though, I remember during summer I would binge Hunter x Hunter (2011) and watch 30+ episodes a day.

I Don't Think So You Are A Weeb Yet.
When I Was In My Anime Prime I Used To Watch 10-20 Eps On School days And 30-40 On Weekends. Ahh, That Dragon Ball And Naruto Times.
Well, Now I Am In My Final Year Of Highschool So I Have Cut Back On Anime A Bit. :)

No you're not the only one, I'm still in high school and my annual exams are near yet still I watch anime for 5-6 hours on weekdays and nearly 12-14 hours on weekends. If I continue this I might even fail so you are not in a bad situation than me(that's what I think, but I might be wrong). Don't worry man anime is only bestowed upon the hand of people like us and that's not really a thing to be proud of.

Weeb is a social construct, if you feel and act like a weeb you will be a weeb. The cure is to get a better taste in anime.

No, you are not. A weeaboo is a huge insult. It means that you try to be Japanese by using Japanese words, wearing a Kimono, ect. Its a bad thing to be a weeb because its disrespectful to actual Japanese people. Being super obsessed with anime (or anything related to Japan for that matter) is not enough to make you a weeaboo. At this point, you're just an anime otaku! And don't let anyone shame you for being who you are!

Enjoying anime and manga doesn't necessarily make you a weeb. If you go around anime posing and saying phrases like 'kawaii desu ne'.. then you've gone too far in and need to be pulled back to the surface.

Yes, you're in too deep already, there's no turning back.. However, maybe you can remain as a "closet weeb" if no one irl knows about your degenerate hobby.

you can save money reading manga online

focus on how to not lose money, not how to gain money, and you'll stop being broke eventually
one focuses on avoiding loss of HP in combat, not how to gain HP

sounds more like a detrimental addiction to me
also no, you're not being a weeb, daijobu!!

You created an MAL account, that already should had raise some red flags ;)

I mean weeb is more associated with people disrespecting the japanese culture, if anything you could label yourself as an otaku. But yeah semantics aside welcome to the "broken because of animu" club.

I always believed that a Weeaboo was somebody who was obsessed with Japan to the point of delusional glorification of both the country's culture as well as its media, not just somebody with an obsessive disposition towards anime/manga.

However, constantly finding yourself broke because you spend so much of your money on your hobbies is not something I'd consider to be healthy spending habits, and I would encourage you to try to perform some self-introspection as to why this is an issue for you. I risk sounding arrogant by saying that, however, and I apologize if I come off as such.

Nope, for now you're just an 'anime fan.' Just beware of these signs of weebness:
-Un-ironically having a waifu
-Buying more than 2 figmas/nendos and prominently displaying them
-Peppering in random Japanese words into your English in front of people

I feel like I'm going through this too, especially ever since I've decided to watch more seasonal shows. Though, this does not make you a weeb, unless you become a mortal being who loves to say the usual weeb words like kawaii, senpai, or any other Japanese word in between your sentence that is instantly classified as S-class weeb talk.
