Anon Submit: Creepy, Crazy Weeaboo

I don’t see many stories on here about full Japanese people’s encounters with weeaboos, so I thought I’d share mine. This one is really scary so be advised. Sorry if my English sucks.

K = Me

W = Weeb

F = My hero (and now my girlfriend)

tw: stalking, harassment, violence, and creepiness.   

So I was about 12 when I moved to a new area and a new school. I didn’t make any friends my first day but on my second day I met W. W was tall and had long brown hair. The moment I met her I knew I was in trouble. After my second class on the second day she ran up to me and hugged me and started saying how how ‘kawaii’ I was. Keep in mind I was very, very short so she was almost crushing me. Being to polite to tell her off I thanked her and tried to go to my net class, but she wouldn’t let me. She asked if I was Japanese. I said yes because I was. W ‘squeed’ and said she would let me join her anime club. I didn’t say anything and just nodded and hurried away to my class.
