Welcome to the New Weeaboo Stories, picking up where old Weeaboo Stories Left off!
This story is a little over a year old, but it’s become one of my favorite, personal internet tales to tell.
One day, while I was browsing through Deviant Art, I saw this picture that looked like a badly traced Naruto video game cover. Out of curiosity, I clicked on it, and saw that the author described the image as being drawn in a “manga style instead of an anime style”. Now that by itself is hilarious, but I was wondering if this was only the tip of the iceberg. So I went to her gallery and came across a picture of Byakuya from Bleach. The image was obviously traced from a recent spread from the manga itself, and I even overlayed her image over the actual spread just to make sure. The images matched up perfectly, save for the text bubbles which honestly don’t matter. This pissed me off to no end, and I called her out on this in the comments section of the Byakuya picture. She quickly responded by telling me that it wasn’t traced and that she had done the whole thing free-handed. Now tracing to get the feel for a particular art style or pose, I can understand. However, copying a picture, giving the actual artist no credit, and then claiming you drew it yourself is just bullcrap.
This girl, who at the time went by Susuzmiya-Ruushii and, I shit you not, claimed to live in the “Naruto World”, had not only traced that picture of Byakuya. She had traced a bunch of pictures from various manga and was getting a lot of praise for doing so from people who were apparently too dumb to tell that she was copying that week’s manga spread. So since I had a lot of time on my hands, and since I’m a horrible human being, I decided to call her out on a larger scale and made the youtube video linked above, detailing why she couldn’t have drawn those pictures of hers free-handed while tearing the lid off of her bullcrap and exposing it to others outside of her idiot fanbase. Shortly after making the video, I got a passive-aggressive message from Susuzmiya-McWeeaboo herself, saying that she reported my youtube video for having…
Of all things, her face.
Well, I could understand why youtube wouldn’t want a weeaboo’s face shown in a video, so I took her face out and reuploaded the video and there wasn’t a damn thing she was able to do about it after that.
A day later I decided to check up on Susuzmiya-LeWapanese to see if she had any more hilarious reactions to the video. Upon going onto her Deviant art, I noticed she had deleted everything I had called her out on tracing, put up a few whiny journal entries, one of which had a picture of a sad Naruto sitting on a swing, claimed she had drawn her pictures using “the grid method” of copying (which clashes with her previous claim of having drawn her pictures freehand and is still copying another artist’s work), and BLAMED AND SENT HER FANS AFTER THE WRONG PERSON. I had told her what drawing I had commented on and even showed the reply she had made to my comment, and she still sent her fans after the wrong, freakin’ person.
Susuzmiya-Ruushii has since changed her Deviantart name twice, and uploaded work, that while still is not that great, is at least her own. At least she learned.

Submit Anon: Old man poses as an Asian
I will never make a deviant art account ever again because of this. Why couldn’t it have been a little girl instead of a creepy old man. I’m scared he still has my Cosplay pictures.
I used to have a Devaintart account. I drew Invader Zim things, crappy anime, and Mary Sues. It wasn’t that I was going through my weeaboo phase, I just used to suck at drawing.I met a boy with the username OtakuInu5 who really liked my OC and asked if he could write fanfiction about her and his OC. Now I made my OC look just like me but with fairy wings, whiter teeth, and she also had longer hair. I called her something like “Ruby” or “Kat”. I told OtakyInu5 that I would be delighted if he wrote fanfiction of my OC and his. He had poor grammar and bad spelling but the plot was alright. After he was done with the fanfic I told him it was amazing (I exaggerated but I was so happy to have fanfiction with my own character in it written by someone else).
That’s when it went weird.
He asked if we could exchange e-mails and at first when I said no he told me that it was okay since he’d send me pictures of himself for proof that he was not an older man. So I gave him my e-mail and he gave me his. When he sent me a picture of himself it was an Asian kid, with emo hair, skinny body, and cuts all over his arm. He asked me to send him pictures and I did for some reason. He told me he was the prettiest white girl he has ever seen. We exchanged information like where we were from, how old we were, and our likes and dislikes. He told me he liked cosplaying because it was really “Asian”. I also liked cosplaying but mostly cartoon characters from Canadian shows or American shows. I did happen to cosplay as Hatsune Miku once and when I told him that he demanded pictures. I sent them to him and in them I wore glasses since I need them to see and I’m too scared of contact lenses since I can’t really touch anywhere close to my eye. He told me I looked moe. I’m not sure why but it made me happy.
Now here’s when things go really bad.
I received an e-mail from him and it was a picture of a totally different kid and when I asked who it was he responded “It’s me, silly Baka! Jeez you’d think that you would recognize me! Ha!” That’s when I started thinking that maybe he wasn’t Japanese. So I asked him if he was really Japanese and he flipped out at me. He sent me a bunch of e-mails everyday on how “Your so untrustful and useless! American! You were never kawaii and I was joking! It was all a joke! Baka ne!”. I told him that he looked a little different so I was just curious and that I was Canadian not American. I also told him that I was deeply sorry and hope he would forgive me (how much of a moron was I back then? I don’t know). I received a long e-mail from him saying things like “It’s alright if you are Canadian and not American, you were just curious about me.” He basically said that over and over adding things like “it’s fine, you just get tsundere sometimes”. But he sent another e-mail that stopped me from talking to him all together. I didn’t read all of it before checking out the picture he sent but it was along the lines of “I’ll give you something to be curious about”. It was a picture of a fat, hairy, old-looking man kissing a printed out picture of my Hatsune Miku cosplay. He then sent an e-mail to see if the video had sent. I’m glad it didn’t.
Oh and he was squinting his eyes too. This was when I was young and stupid.
Submit Anon: Weeb Be Angry
This is more so a story about my sister, who is very intelligent and enjoys the anime and the furry fandom, albeit a little obsessively and secretly. First, it started with her dealing with groups on deviantart, looking at the weebs that ran them, and saying, “I could do better.” After organizing groups, and virtually wiping her own group, which now has 300 members, of any surface weeb-ness, she attended a local anime convention or two. I guess she realized that some fan-people are creepy, and refuses to socialize after some Tiger and Bunny cosplayer shouted inappropriate things, and scared the crap out of her. Sadly, my sister believes everyone her age who still likes anime, manga, homestuck, and furries are huge idiots due to her bad experience. However, it’s pretty clear she likes anime, and furry stuff and has been forcing herself not to.
This is where I come in. I’m pretty new to the furry fandom, but essentially I’ve been drawing furry art my whole life. Simply because I enjoy this still my sister has been going out of her way to bash me for this. You should know that despite being a furry, I go to one of the top art schools in the country, and draw tons of other things.
First, it started with my sister bashing my anime art style, which I easily changed into a cartoony style. That argument ended, but the battle had only begun.
She then began denying the fact that she still maintained that deviantart groups she had. However, whenever I looked online it was still being updated even when she claimed that she wasn’t running it. Then she changed her story and told me she had given her account to her friend, who was now running it…? I asked this friend, and she seemed to have no idea what was going on.
Finally, my sister found my tumblr. I had to delete it because of her saying all anime and furries were evil, gay, or both at the same time. Sadly, this turned into my parents finding out about the tumblr we didn’t even know my sister had. From the content on there, she’d basically been a giant hypocrite this entire time!
Sadly, I feel there are more and more people like my sister; people who can’t enjoy anything because they fear the simplest amount of nerdy behavior will ruin them. Ok, I understand the fear, but being a real weeb at one point myself, I know my sister is just personally hurting herself, and all the friends she’s ostracized. Sadly, I’d have rather had to deal with outright weebs then my sister because all her angry behavior had made her crafty and even secretly evil.
Now I find it funny, because my sister got into Homestuck, and I guess it broke her out of this geek witch-hunt routine. We talk about it often, and I think everything is on the mend.
This is just a message saying it’s okay to geek out sometimes!
I’m so done with dA…
This isn’t your typical weeaboo story, I suppose - the issue here wasn’t really the weeabooness. However, there are weeaboo elements, and lots of creepiness.
It started back in high school when I bought four tickets to see Dir en grey in my city. It was my first concert, and I was super excited. I had two friends, M and K, who were excited to go with me. K had suggested I invite another girl, we’ll call her Tina. Tina had been a fan of the band since middle school, and I’d seen her in Japanese class, so I figured it would be fine.
Found this on DA when I went to the person’s profile to thank them for a fave. This was their DA ID.
They were wearing a Naruto headband in the ID picture too.
Submit Anon: Age -isn’t- just a number
TW: sexual harassment, uncomfortable situations.
When I was 13 I was your average middle-schooler verging on weeabooism, I occasionally read doujins and sometimes called my friends “-chan!” (they actually asked me to in the first place, so there was no harm in it), and I had a YouTube account dedicated to animations with the software MikuMikuDance. The videos were nothing special, stupid average middle school humor, but a lot of people liked them. I was actually pretty popular for once.
But this story isn’t about me, no, this is a story about the person that sent me a message on YouTube, which in turn taught me a lesson about always being cautious with who you talk to on the internet.
