weaboo

other word formation type noun
A person, usually of non-Asian descent, who is overly infatuated with Japan and all things relating to Japanese culture. The person tends to claim that their indigenous culture does not compare to Japanese culture, many times citing food, architecture, and literature as the basis for their argument.
 
This name is almost exclusively used to describe those who are interested in the Japanese subcultures of manga and anime.
Etymology : Novel creation formed with reference to original word with the same meaning: ‘Wapanese.’ Said term became increasingly offensive and was replaced with ‘weaboo’ by moderators of popular forum website ‘4chan’ in 2005, when the usage of the term was at its peak.
