I'm not entirely certain if this is the right place (/tg/ denizen), but are there japanese people who are obsessed or greatly enjoy western culture in a manner similar to weaboos?

Eating nothing but hamburgers, having a confederate/union/nazi flag on the wall, wearing full plate in their downtime...

Or just, y'know, interested in western culture in a reasonable way.
>>
They're called reverse weeaboos.

on japanese military forums there are some people who fantasize about being american, russian or nazi soldiers. Dressing up and maybe doing some airsoft battles.

>>8810288
because it's exotic to the japanese. Also, There are 20.000.000 manga series so if you want to come up with a premise for an exiting story and setting for your manga, you have to use everything. That's why there are manga about people travelling back in time to cook for feudal lords and shit. Gotta keep it fresh.

My husband is one of these people. Japanese, decided to study abroad for college, ended up in Texas, subsequently became infected with cowboy hats, guns, horseback riding, Cracker Barrel, tanks, and state's rights. He wears a duster and a stetson hat, completely unironically, in the middle of New York City. Also likes Renn faires.

You probably want to ask that on /jp/.

>>8810291
There's also Ouiaboos for France.

I doubt there are many, but they do exist. There's also raggare in the Nordic countries and western Europe, which apparently involves a deep love of 50s/60s American cars, rock and roll, and confederate flags. They look about as trashy as American confederate flag wavers.

Because this board has threads about weeaboos all the time? /jp/ would have probably been better, but in a way it's related to the nerd culture and Japanese influence this board has, I could see how OP could have gotten the idea to ask here.

OP didn't even post anything about their gender, stop being a baby.

They definitely love charming western things. Many couples now are opting for a western style church wedding though the person officiating it is usually a foreigner with no actual church affiliation. They just like the romance of the church and dressing in stylish dresses and tuxedos over the Shinto ceremonies.

As for straight up reverse weeaboos they exist but not as many as regular weeaboos.

I feel like Seto Ayumi counts, since her brand is literally herself + American things (fast food + comics)

Actually there's a video game designer called Suda51 who's an Americaboo.
He was born in Japan, but is a fan of western tv shows. He loves Star War so much he made a "light beam katana" one of his characters' main weapon.
That's the only reverse weeaboo I can think of.

That's Trigger before they left Gainax. There's western references all over Kill la Kill too, like the Pulp Fiction guys in the background of ep 4 (the "budget" episode).

Oh also whosever idea it was to name the characters in Amagi Brilliant Park after Kanye West, 50 Cent and Queen Latifa

I think quite a lot of Japanese are at least somewhat into other countries, usually USA or Europe. For an example as a Finn living in here I sometimes get a bit surprised at the level of intensity some people are putting in to learning the language, buying everything Finnish they can find... some even read those books about our education system and try to implement it on their kids. Mostly I find these people just really cool and am happy that they are interested in my country but sometimes they really do remind me of the Japan weeaboos back home.

My school has a shit ton of Asiam international students and I've noticed that there are many who only like western music(Taylor Swift or One Direction) or movies(Disney, Marvel etc). Some even want to marry a foreigner and many don't like anime or Japanese music.

Defintiley not as bad as teen weaboos though but similar to people who like a different culture.

>>8810260
That image is straight up cultural appropriation. Shame on her. I'm going straight to Tumblr and Facebook to call her out.

It was actually really cringey and bad. Japs try too hard sometime to compare with American television. They only succeed at wooing a small minority of loser teenagers who most of the time grow out of it post-college.

Yes.

OP reminded me of the Yoyogi park rockabilly dancers, but there do seem to be a lot of japanese obsessed with foreign culture. Whether they're more likely to mix anything that seems gaijin or actually obsess over a single country like weeaboos, I'm not sure. The country as a whole has become quite fond of western stuff, kinda like Europe adopted a lot of American culture in the late 1900s.

I do know there are a lot of gun otaku. So much so there's a thriving industry for accurate replica airsoft guns in Japan.

I'm sure there are other kinds too, interest is going to be there since people usually find exotic things interesting, and as boring as America seems to the people living in it, it is a place that would spark interest in other people.

I wouldn't be surprised especially if the idea of the Midwest or places liked Texas and Alaska, where owning a decent amount of land is fairly common, is very popular over there since land is an extremely valuable commodity in comparison.
>>
>>8810260
I am like this kind of. I prefer American movies and games much more than local movies and games. I have friends who are "Anglophiles" and "Francophiles"

During my trip to Japan I saw this guy by wearing a cowboy hat and leather pants unironically. He was just living his life walking through the park.
Naturally I only manage to take a horrible photo, when he's far away and half obstructed by a lamp post, but believe me, he exists.
I can't imagine how he could stand the leather pants, it was a hellish heat during those days.
