Welcome, weaboo horror fans! For quite a while now, I’ve been having fun looking up weaboo horror stories around the web, and I thought it was about time I set up somewhere to collect them all. Up until now, the main sources for weeb stories have been:
4chan – The main source for them, but threads on there “evaporate” as new ones are posted. Plus there’s not always an active horror story thread. Or at least there isn’t on /cgl/ or /b/. I’m not about to tramp through all the other boards looking for them!
Tumblr – Tumblr has several weaboo horror pages. But the design of tumblr pages is really shitty and disorganised. Also every time somebody shares a post, looks at a post, talks about a post, or farts in the general direction of a post, it creates a “note”. Meaning you have to scroll through acres of crap just to get to a comment on a story.
So, I decided to create a weaboo horrors wordpress blog! This has a number of advantages, the main one being that each story can be in it’s own post (with it’s own comments). The posts can also be categorised – by region, date, type of horror etc.
Rather than just be a grab-bag of weeb horror stories, I also want this blog to probe into them a little. Several are accused of being fake – either through careful analysis of the details, research discovering stolen details / photos, or just being far too stupid to be believable! Several people have described weaboo horror stories as being a modern, anime-fandom-focused version of campfire stories. Whereas long ago, teenagers would go out camping in the woods and tell tales of their encounters with the paranormal, these days they are bathed in the blue glow of /cgl/ and “yarn” about their enounters with crazed cosplayers!
This blog will probably move pretty slowly – I’m not a weeb so I do have a life to attend to! And I doubt my boss would appreciate me updating an “attack blog” while I’m at work, either. Feel free to share stories in the comments, if you post links to stories not already on the blog, I’ll archive and upload them eventually!
