    Yes, there is not a single source before the 19th century from that archipelago using the term Japan/Nihon/Nippon as an ethnic name.

    It was nothing more than a regional term until the Western-LARPing Meijis used it to name their newly made-up ethnicity.

        Yamato was the name of a made-up family that allegedly ruled over a small plot of land, it's not an ethnic name.

      "The earliest record of 日本 appears in the Chinese Old Book of Tang, which notes the change in 703 when Japanese envoys requested that its name be changed. It is believed that the name change within Japan itself took place sometime between 665 and 703.[4] During the Heian period, 大和 was gradually replaced by 日本, which was first pronounced with the Chinese reading Nippon and later as Nifon, and then in modern usage Nihon, reflecting shifts in phonology in Early Modern Japanese.[1] Marco Polo called Japan 'Cipangu' in circa 1300, based on the Chinese name,[5] probably 日本國; 'sun source country' (compare modern Min Nan pronunciation ji̍t pún kok). In the 16th century Malacca, Portuguese traders first heard from Malay and Indonesian the names Jepang, Jipang, and Jepun.[6] In 1577 it was first recorded in English spelled Giapan.[6] At the end of the 16th century, the Portuguese missionaries came to Japan and created grammars and dictionaries of Middle Japanese. The 1603–1604 dictionary Vocabvlario da Lingoa de Iapam has 2 entries: nifon[7] and iippon.[8] Since then many derived names of Japan appeared on ancient European maps."

          This explains why weebs are always dumb, in order to "enjoy" a Japanese anime, you have to shut your brain off and weebs watched so much of it that their brain has been permanently shutdown.

            Hollywood isn't the entirety of Western cinema, you disgusting porn addict. Everything you said applies to Japanime. Dog shit story. Cape shit. Slave brainwashing. Beta male protagonists. Child porn. Every girl is dressed like a stripper. Such shit humor that no one has ever laughed at a scene or a meme. So garbage that the only way for Japanime to have someone's attention is to insert porn and 50 animators for one dollar per hour to make one minute scene. Zero substance.

        1st season is legitimately entertaining, just don't take it too seriously.
        2nd season is a fricking train wreck, but an absolutely absurdly entertaining one at that. They basically frick everything up but in ways that are so over the top it still ends up being fun.

      They were ripping off China for 1500 years before LARPing as Westerners, they used the term Japan as a regional term for the middle part of the archipelago and there were travelers to China who visited Japan.

      Additionally, before the 19th century, the archipelago was a little continent with hundreds of ethnic groups and different kingdoms waging war against each other.

    It says a lot about how fake Japan, Korea and China are when they pump billions of dollars into propaganda for their made-up ethnicities and countries and revise their fake history every 1-5 years with contradictory claims and insane claims that there's no evidence for.

    Yeah, the archipelago only got constructed in the in the 1950s. The Koreans made it from all the human waste that was flowing out of the Yellow river. That's why so many Japs have scat fetishes.

    Knowing more about Japs made me dislike a lot of their media. I can't really take seriously any of their stories that include sexual violence. They made a lot of movies like that in the 70s and 80s and in the past I thought they have like deeper meaning about society and shit, but after consuming a lot of their media I realized they are just mentally ill coomers.

    "Sort of."

    From what I understand absolutely a lot of what we know as the "Japanese" was invented during the Meiji Restoration starting in 1868 and ending in 1889(?) They ended the shogunate, they industrialized, they compiled, formalized, and institutionalized Shintoism into the religion it is today, they restructured their military AND created their government- both by copying/borrowing ideas from other nations on how they had done it.

    Now, the reason I said "sort of" is because the Japanese already had an ethnicity to begin with. They didn't invent their hatred of the Chinese and the Koreans, nor all their cultural or religious practices during the Meiji period- they just put it all together and formalized it. Furthermore, everything they did steal or copy from other nations they always made an effort to give it an ethnic coat of paint: both to "make it theirs" and thus more acceptable to the general populous, but also to prevent them from mindlessly aping other's ideas and losing initiative by becoming (for lack of a better term) "globalized".
