    the common misconception between weebs and otakus.......Heres an example.

    weebs: watch anime, alot of it, and really enjoy it, maybe wanna go to japan, but not because of the culture.

     Otakus: watch anime, maybe not, but definitely some sort of japanese media, JDramas, Music, etc. Otakus study and learn about japanese culture, and its the reason they want to go to badly. But if you know an otaku, dont get mad they know more than you, just accept it :)

    Don't know who those "people" are.  But if there really are such people they are misinformed.  On the other hand, there is a lot to learn from these Japanese produced movies.  "Japan Sinks" is a Japanese anime that is filled with Japanese culture and biases.  For example, there is a Japanese boat captain who refuses to take "a foreigner" aboard his ship in a rescue operation.  That's the first indication of racial bias that I've ever seen about Japanese.
