Either marrying fictional character is dumb or stupid or weird or whatever you think. Personally, i'm wondering: Why the hell did one marry somebody that don't even exist in real world? The person in question must be REALLY infatuated with one of those fictional character(s) so they didn't want other people claim them
Hi I'm 12 years old and what is this?
what do you mean?
Just a meme, don't worry about it.
oh? sorry, i don't know. what does it mean anyway?
you must read something about youtube bombarded by porn by those-who-should-not-be-named-otherwise-i'm-not-b e-forgiven-nor-forgotten.
Nah, i'm just typing what i think about marrying anime chara
Are you asking (1) if this manga/anime character suddenly became real or we suddenly became 2D, would we marry them OR (2) would we marry this drawing on a piece of paper (b/c that has happened) ?
I think they mean as-is. Everyone would marry them if they could! XD
Oh, I don't know if I'd marry some of my favorite characters even if they were real.
But there's no way I'm going to marry a painted picture of some anime character on a pillow or hump a life-size piece of cardboard. Some have gone that route, but at the end of the day I prefer flesh.
That's exactly what I was wondering about too. Right now it doesn't make much sense IMO.

I think they are just saying like if you went in the anime/manga's world or the character coming in our world... I would say yes to some... eheheheheh.... (i sound creepy now...)
I liked telegrapher's comment in the link. With the increasing lack of truly feminine girls in the real world, it wouldn't be surprising if more people pledge their love to an ideal, gentle virtual person in the future.
'It turns out men do not like being married to other men. Go figure.'
Haha, good one.
Wow, what a sad comment out of touch with reality.
Nah, he nailed it. It is you who is delusional.
"Increasing lack of truly feminine girls in the real world"? "Pledge their love to an ideal, gentle virtual person"?
Ahahaha wow you're a terrible person if you're not trolling
I got a couple of broads' panties in a bunch, didn't I?
The 'u mad' defense? Yawn. Try harder next time.
No need. You are proving my point simply by replying.
Ummm, honey? I think you might want to re-read their comment
The yawn indicates boredom, not irritation. They are recognizing that you're just trolling, and saying that it's boring not that it upsets them. But it's okay! Everyone makes mistakes
This is fun! Who the heck replies to someone just to say they are bored? Maybe you need to read the others. Keep them coming.
:\ oh...i'm thinking it has to do with pathetic males that refuse to grow up into men. but w/e keep deluding yourself.
The irony is that you want to be one of those men you make fun of; pathetic, huh?
You are an idiot.
Such a bimbo-rific reply. At least work out your small brain to think of more than four words to say. Oh, wait - you just got another text. Time for some ADD.
Haha, the perfect wife for lots of men is just a fuckable mom!
What the hell does that even mean?
Actually, they do
That's why gay marriage is becoming legalized in so many states! And if you want to know where the feminine girls are going.. they're waking up and realizing that straight men are overrated and dating other feminine girls! After all, feminine girls ARE the best, so why wouldn't we want to date each other?
You need to get out of the U.S. . . .
First you complain about the lack of feminine girls, then you say that the feminine girls need to leave. I think you need to make up your mind mister!
What the . . .? I meant that there are lots of countries where gay marriage is not legalized. Hold your horses, feminist, will you? U mad?
No, just confused. Why would I leave this country for ones where gay marriage isn't legal? Honestly, you need to use that logic center of your brain a bit more :/
*Sighs* 'When talking with a fool . . .'
I was referring to your obvious ignorance of the laws of many countries, but if I needed to explain myself twice on something very clear, then you have more important things to worry about, such as, ironically, your small brain. You seem to have dyslexia, so let me help you read the following: 'I . . . Am . . . Stupid . . . Really . . . Really . . . Stupid.'
One shouldn't confuse reality with fiction. Hopefully not too many take this one too seriously.
when i saw the poll my first thought was "where is the 'wtf' button?". at the end of the day, i fap to my hentai about as much as i fap to my regular porn, but still.. yeah, missing the 'wtf' button.
Only manga or anime? Totally not!
Now if we included eroge chars then I would have a harem ready
Don't really understand this one. Is it that I would marry a character that automatically came alive and was real (and more importantly, loved me back) or am I just marrying a concept or idea? Not going to vote. :S
Belladandy.... She's mine!
I remember reading somwhere, that some Korean guy married a Christmass Tree and other one his hug pillow...so yeah I'm not really surprised that this topic came into view.
But for me real life FTW..and so does real life girls.
PS: Try hugging a piece of paper, to realise that 2D is not a good way to spend your life loving.
PPS: Remember to iron that paper after the hug. XD
Eh?! Seriously O.o I thought they meant if the characters actually became real, but on that bombshell I'm starting to think that might not be the case. Cause if he were a real person I'd marry Yoiyami-kun any day of the week :3 But to actually marry a 2D character... D:
What is this I don't even...
Probably not a point to think about it too much. This one may be a bit over the top. Seems more focused on people whose sole love in life is the 2D world.
I'm not too partial to getting paper cuts when having "sex" :lol:
To those who didn't choose "No, I don't date fictional characters," don't you people know real people you'd rather marry or date or whatever? Life must be pretty bad if you fantasize or desire being with a cartoon over a real person... I can understand if you're 10-years-old or something, but otherwise it's just plain sad, especially if you're an adult. I'm no Casanova, but I'd rather go out a bang a hideous fatty than wish I was with a cartoon chick. Imagine if people really had eyes like that. Creepy! Now, fapping to them is a different story (but the eyes MUSTN'T be huge) :lol: It's the acts they perform which is attractive IMO, but that's neither here nor there. I'd rather be with someone who doesn't have G-cups, pink, wild hair and grossly inaccurate, massive eyes. I guess it's just something about a study I read where people find babies cute due in part to their larges eyes in comparison to their head and some connection between sexual attraction, but I can't remember the details. Now, every time I see huge anime eyes, I think of that study. Not to mention it's a cartoon ffs!
So many pedos, huh?
And where exactly did that come from?
Do I really need to explain that one?
'People like big eyes' ----> 'Babies have big eyes' ----> 'Sexual attraction results'
That wasn't really the point of his post though is what I meant.
I know. I just didn't like what he said, such as the last words. He sounded immature.
Babies don't have big eyes. They have big heads. Babies are born with almost adult-sized eyes, so that is may seem like they have big eyes when in reality it's their heads and other facial features what are disproportionally big compared with the rest of their bodies.
You're not making any sense at all. I don't see how you could possibly claim they have big heads while simultaneously claiming they don't have big eyes. Both are big relative to the baby and small relative to an adult.
I like where this conversation is going. I agree with mattai. You are being contradictory here. If babies had big heads, they wouldn't be perceived as having big eyes. That doesn't make any sense. Besides, their heads grow in time.
Ah, science . . .
You know, there was a chapter on Franken Fran
where a girl got an operation to look just like a certain anime character so that she could win over a celebrity otaku! It was pretty interesting! Also horrifying.
That could be okay.....sometimes......but only in a storyline (if it actually fits in).
Not exactly something people would want to see in real life (at least most people).
If I ever can't hold a job and live in my mother's basement, sure.
If the character somehow became real and it was possible to marry an anime character, and he fit all my requirements for a future husband, then I would go for it. Logically speaking.
