Definitely have to go to Japan. Have to report on anime. Definitely. Now.

It's sad that in the back of his mind, wasting his life on this litany of stuff, he was mentally checking down these titles as job qualifications.

America has way too few scientists and engineers, probably because our nerds are devoting all their brainspace to memorizing anime characters fighting moves and playing 500 hour long RPGs and the whole shebang-a-bang.

The scrolling title list made me think of those ads for vocational schools where you can be a TV Repairman - Paralegal - Data Entry Associate - Secretary - Nursing Assistant - etc., only with anime titles instead.

If only there were an anime called "GUN REPAIR."

Xenocide - 2008-07-08

I demand a giant robot named Gun Repair.

Its power is that it waits until the other robots have had their guns damaged in battle. Then it steals their broken gun, repairs it, and shoots them with it.

Its pilot would be that little girl who took apart the AR15.

Xenocide, that, before the doujinshi crowd get to it.

divinitycycle - 2008-07-09

5 Stars for this entire series of replies!

GoodAaron - 2008-07-08

Oh my God. Worth watching all the way through.

Chizmurder - 2008-07-08

He really is an enthusi-assed. Un-f*ckin-believable.

buttnutt - 2008-07-08

He so clearly wishes he was an anime character.

I love his description of Tokyo. Neon lights at night time? People walking and talking real fast? It must be an amazing place. Shit like that isn't in the US at all.

Xiphias - 2008-07-08

This is fucking magic.

Based on how every single sentence is composed of multiple takes edited together, I am pretty sure the entire video is faked. He's never even seen anime before.

Also the last minute. THE LAST MINUTE.

mysterycar - 2008-07-17

i think he just cut out all his pauses in the mistaken belief it would give things some flow

Xenocide - 2008-07-08

Too bad anime never taught him that saying you fear contact and interaction is probably a bad idea when you're auditioning to be a reporter.


"People put me down no matter what I do! But I know that I'm better than everybody!"

Rudy - 2008-07-08

This was done in one long take. He's just really twitchy.

Insane, yet realistic!

Unmerciful Crushing Force - 2008-07-08

Wow, it's like this guy's sole purpose for existence is so that others can go WELL AT LEAST I'M NOT THAT GUY.

I like how his role models are a superpowered psychotic and a neurotic wussboy. Needs more blerd tag.

Keefu - 2008-07-08


There's so much here to possibly comment on that its daunting. The last 40 or so seconds of the video, the info thats been plastered up in the beginning, and just....just....just....EVERYTHING. More than once did this video bring me immense glee and joy. Also oh god that special move.

RomancingTrain - 2008-07-08

He wants to be Tetsuo because he want to be the universe.

fluffy - 2008-07-08


Sudan no1 - 2008-07-08

I fear for this kid when 4chan eventually finds him.

thebaronsdoctor - 2008-07-08

Beautiful, this is what the internet was made for

baleen - 2008-07-08

Wow... I was about to close it... It REALLY needs to be watched all the way through, as we get a peak into his little belief system.

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-07-08

I can't make it past about three minutes. I'm going to doggybag this video for later.

ashtar. - 2008-07-08

Anime is your personal friend.

StanleyPain - 2008-07-08

I get this ALL THE TIME at my job when people ask me where the manga is located. I just say "Oh its over there..." and I get rewarded with this. I wish I were exaggerating or making it up....these people cannot fucking stop talking about this shit. And you have to be careful not to let on that you know anything AT ALL about ANY anime..not even the good ones. Otherwise, you've just made a new friend for the day.....who won't ever go away.

Cleaner82 - 2008-07-08

Oooh, a rental monkey! I was a rental monkey too! There was a guy like this who used to come in and literally leave an invisible cloud of stink in his path, like a snail trail. You could tell where he'd been in the store by smell for up to ten minutes after he'd left.

Shion - 2008-07-30

I know a Japanophile who also apparently has fibromyalgia. You know how dogs can smell fear? This one can smell sympathy and freshly printed Tokyo Pop publications from 1000 paces.

Caminante Nocturno - 2008-07-09

The last part of this video.

Imagine being attacked by a wild animal.

Imagine the sense of relief you would feel as it turned away and left you.

Imagine your sense of relief being shattered as that animal suddenly turned around and began running back towards you.

That's what the last part of this video is.

divinitycycle - 2008-07-09


Also, I knew a dude almost exactly like this guy back in the day, and YES he could go on and on like that, and YES he would play those god-awful JRPGs that take like 9 million hours to complete. I miss you, Urie!

Also, needs "Whitest Black Man" tag

Random - 2008-07-10

God bless this nerd. If I had to listen to somebody talk about anime obsessively it would probably be this guy (as long as there would be extra information put up on the screen while he talks). It would be cool if all of the fake nerds on G4 shows were just replaced with awesome/crazy nerds like this

ihounokyaku - 2008-07-10

The Asian culture.

Screwtape - 2008-07-10

Black... people?

Unsung - 2008-07-17

5 Stars for the offhand dismissal of Dragonball Z, the show almost all anime nerds start off with and then pretend to hate later.

dreamvigile - 2008-07-17

The anime community should form a governing body so they can legislate against this sort of behavior and euthanize these sorts of people.

phalsebob - 2008-07-21

For once I'm stumped. I can't point and call him Weeaboo can I. I'm sure someone will coin an imaginatively mocking phrase.

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-07-31



bopeton - 2008-09-09

Please tell me he got the job.

Do you have a ps3? GET ONE!!!

That settles it. Even though I can't afford it, I am getting an Xbox 360 RIGHT NOW. I'll take three!
