A Japanese youth was raised in the West, by Western adoptive parents. He knew not the language of his ancestors, nor the customs of their culture. Soon after reaching adulthood, he had befriended some American otaku, and one day he accompanied them to an animu convention. There, he met a great otaku master, a much-respected man, whose knowledge of Tezuka, Yokoyama and Ishinomori was as broad as the cosmos itself. Seeking for this master's counsel and advice, to this master the young man told his story,

"Weeaboo." the master said, and turned away, leaving the shocked youth staring at his back.
