    The best part is that Carameldansen is a song from a Swedish group.

    I promise you, what annoys a majority of people is how obnoxious a select group of people tend to be on insisting that anything which is Asian-related should automatically be Japanese because of "ANIME ^_^ ^^ ^^ ^^ TOTEMO KAWAII DESU ^____________^"
    The problem is rather that small group completely freaking out, foaming at their mouth every time they see something even remotely otaku culture related. Caramelldansen (the dance itself) originates from Popotan, which is certainly 100% Japanese. Another reason for you to start raging, I guess

    To say anyone who watches anime is instantly insecure with their own sense of place and magically loves everything Japanese over anything else is preeetty biased.

    I know the Caramelldansen (<3 btw), but I haven't seen the LMFAO video enough times to know this was it (really not a fan)

    Either way, this post made me ridiculously happy

    The first few seconds of the female dance looks like the carlton dance

    And lets repeat that its an asian expansion.


    How is saying Hare Hare Yukai would be better than the already quintessentially Japanese caramelldansen forcing Japanese culture down peoples throats? Its trading one for another. Most people wouldnt even know what it was - just like people in this thread not knowing what caramelldansen is.

    To even use the word weeaboo means you must be pretty insecure of your own sense of culture.
    I... wow, way to miss the forest for the trees. Take off your tunnel vision blinders and realize I never said it was offensive or that it had to be OMG Chinese, nor did I say Blizz was shoving Japanese culture or style down peoples' throats (keyword quintessentially, we both are aware it's not a Japanese song).

    What I'm bringing attention to is the fact that overzealous Japanphiles seem to think that any time Asia is referenced, there need to be nine million anime references, which is extremely imposing. Not everyone is an anime fan. Think about that objectively.

    In response to the bolded sentence: I reckon that sounds like projection on your part.

    No one ever said you were insecure.... holy crap, you're the one who brought up insecurity, lol. Nor did I ever stereotype anime watchers (guess what I enjoy!). Being an anime watcher doesn't make you a weeaboo, being an anime fanatic/otaku on the other hand, well that's arguable.

    Also, putting words in peoples' mouths doesn't help your case at all.

    I hate to tell you this sir, but you're overreacting. WoW has tons of references to different things and I don't see you filling up with rage that they exist in the game already. Because some people dared to suggest that the dance(which never has anything to do with the race itself) be something you apparently do not like you decided that they must be trying to take over the world... of warcraft. I think the only one suffering from tunnel vision here is you.

    Even if the song is swedish, the dance seems to be based on a hentai game dance scene.

    This is why I fear ever going to any conventions. I don't think my eyes can handle the continuous rape of over confident over weight people.

    You are the one making a HUGE issue out of every anime reference being made. (Even using terms only 12 year olds use..."weeaboo", really?).

    Correct. Part is from a famous hentai game, the other part is from a famous anime., both got parodied endlessly, thus justifying their appearance in WoW.

    Overzealous? So you're pretty much just pinning the word weeaboo on everyone who mentions anime then? Sweeping generalisations bring nothing but wrath.

    Now ignoreing the "nine million". Really? Imposing? Lets be serious here - Blizzard put in so many pop culture references already, putting a few more in isnt going to get to anyone (well, some people). Getting offended by anime references in WoW (of which theres probably what, 20 max?) is hard to swallow.

    And no, the bolded part pretty much sums up everything youve said so far. Pure judgemental tone and all.

    Oh yeah, I'm so angry. I mean, however you want to rationalize any perceivable criticism away, lest it shatter your fragile ego. I find it ironic that you're complaining about people 'stereotyping' anime fans yet do the same to anyone who doesn't think 'CARMELLDANSEN DAISUKI DESU ^__________^' or whatever.

    But hey, it's easy to dismiss criticism than to take it for what it is. Intellectual laziness at its finest.

    Also, Carmelldansen isn't the name of the dance if you really want to split hairs. BTW, do you know what otaku translates to? Even the Japanese use it as a derogatory term.

    I never said that... did you not read my last post? As an anime viewer myself, I obviously don't consider everyone who enjoys anime to be a weeaboo. Are you even reading my posts or just skimming them? The quote implies you think that all anime fans are overzealous, however.

    Your lack of comprehension for what I've said is astounding, it's like you've just turned on your defensive shell and are dismissing any sort of dissent. I'm not here to battle you, I'm making a point that it's obnoxious when 'weeaboos' think everything needs to be Japanese.... please show me where I ever complained about Blizzard?

    First of all, weeaboo isn't a real word, though if we were to go to urbandictionary...


    Someone who is obsessed with Japan/Japanese Culture/Anime, etc. and attempts to act as if they were Japanese, even though they're far from it. They use Japanese words but usually end up pronouncing them wrong and sounding like total assholes. You can find alot of these faggots clogging up the forums of Gaia Online, hanging out in the international aisle of the supermarket, or crowding the manga section of your local bookstore. Synonym of wapanese.



    Seriously, stop arguing for the sake of arguing and just read what I have to say with an open mind. I fully read your posts, I'd expect the same courtesy in return.

    I do what now? That comment was the first time responding to you, which I think is more than reasonable, yet it only resulted in you getting even angrier. The claims you make about other people makes me believe you live in your own little reality bubble.
