As I’m catching up on my season backlog, I realized that with episode 8, most of the cast of “I Have Few Friends” aren’t just socially awkward, but extremely socially inept. They’re the type of people you’ll encounter when browsing 4chan and other message boards that are don’t have social lives outside the internet because they’re that socially inept.
Now, many people in anime fandoms have moments where they act like this, and in small amounts, it’s tolerable, but when it’s how they act all the time, they are, to be blunt, really annoying.
Often a young teen or an immature person, the Weeaboo is a often just dumbed down to someone openly obsessed with Japanese media and culture, but personally, I think it’s more then that. A Weeaboo uses an anime, anime as a whole, or anything Japanese as an escape from the real world and the social norms. Some take it to the extreme of acting anyway they want, and believe that having perfection in their fantasy world is more important then following rules or respecting others boundaries. When these types of weeaboos end up in situation where they can get scot-free with anything, weird and bad things can happen.
Basically, they’re relatively normal teenagers if they’re the age to be teenagers, or people who never grew up.
The Obsessive Fanboy/girl
They’re more obsessive then the typical fan, but more mature then a weeaboo. Yet they treat their object of obsession like it’s life or death, and take it to extreme and creepy levels. You know, marry their DS extreme.
And don’t tell me Sena wouldn’t.
They’re either trying to demonstrate how sexy they are, or really horny and really imaginative. Either way, they want to tell you in detail about every sex related thought they have.
And you’d do anything to make them stop.
Trolls enjoy harassing other people through various methods.
If you don’t know what a troll is then you may be…
Too Stupid to Be On the Internet
Not someone who’s new to the internet or a web site, but someone who’s infuriating stupid about the ways things work. They’re very gullible, often think whatever they’re told is true, and don’t know how to conduct themselves. They don’t know how not to attract trolls and fall for them at the same time.
The ones that remain on the internet probably never learns, as netizens prefer to berate these people rather then help them, but they tend to remain rather cheerful no matter what happens.
That’s all there is as the main character is the straight man, and the trap doesn’t have much going on beyond wanting to be a warrior.
