Otaku Demand Right to Wed 2D Characters


Otaku have petitioned the government for the right to marry 2D characters.

The online petition in question:

“We’ve no interest in the 3D. If we could, we’d like to live in a 2D world. However, with current technology, this is not possible. So at the very least, can we have marriage to 2D characters legally recognised? If this were to come to pass, I intend to marry Asahina Mikuru.”

The most interesting comment we see in response is this:

“I’ve been married to Arcueid of Tsukihime for five years now. I’ve no doubt that I want to spend the rest of my life with her. As someone who lives in two dimensions, I’d very much like to support this measure!”

Via Gigazine.

Currently the measure has 530 supporters, with a million seemingly being the target for it to be presented to the diet, should they tear themselves away from trying to ban 2D characters for long enough to hear it.

    Mikuru was my least favorite. He could have her.

    Japan's already got the longest life expectancy and now it's going for lowest birth rate too.

    Japan already has one of the lowest birth rates, at least as far as first world countries go. The ratio in Tokyo is less than 1 child per family, with a little over 1 for Japan as a whole. At this rate, the Japanese are due to become extinct.

    ROFL, lowest birth rate would only count from having a birth rate....

    It's not that they don't fuck, they do, a little too much btw, it's just they ALL get abortions, and the ones that don't, get run over by some bozo on the street, this isn't an offense, it's just how the world works.

    It's stuff like this that tells me to stop calling myself an "otaku," because I'm simply just a fan of Japanese popular culture and in fact NOT an otaku. Man, this is pathetic... >_>

    ...Mikuru's underaged. You've gotta be like 20 to get married in Japan, or something like that, correct me if I'm mistaken.

    Whoever gets Miku first is just gonna get lynched one way or another. Then the second, the third, the one-hundred and twenty-six, etc...

    Coming from an obsessed anime artist/character designer's veiw, I wouldn't allow it. Actually, if they want to MARRY a character, shouldn't they ask the character's mother or father? (Aka, creator) Because they're the original voice behind it...

    But still I don't know what self respecting Manga/anime creator would allow that O__o

    so hows the fight on gay 2d marriage? i say they should let them as long as they can get actual consent. And them snag them for forging signatures. Its a win win system, throw the otakus into a sleaze pit of themselves and shower broken figurines onto them

    I prefer 2D to 3D. I'd love to marry a 2D loli.

    If they were living at The Simpson's world, Homer Simpson would marry them. :P For those who didn't get the joke, it was in one episode where Homer would marry everyone: even comic freaks with human-size dolls of comic heroines.

    This is ridiculous, they clearly haven't thought this through
    First of all the characters don't have an actual choice in what goes on, it's the magaka's who decide what goes on
    Secondly, think of all the people who would want to marry the same people

    Okay, now this is just stupid. Yes, we all have had fantasies about sexing up anime babes. But I won't even purchase a body pillow. Even I have standards. To be honest, I'd rather marry a seiyuu like Aya Hirano or Shoko Nakagawa, except that I'm sure that they both have extremely protective boyfriends and being an American, I probably wouldn't have a chance with either one, or any Japanese woman for that matter. Plus, with a real woman, you don't have to worry about getting papercuts on your junk...

    Not ALL otakus are socially retarded.

    It's just that the other 99.5% give the rest of us a bad name.

    exactly... it's just all those other 0.5% are retards... legally marry a concept? Ridiculous ( and yes, each anime character can be considered a concept) it's like try to say: "Hey, I want it to be legal for me to marry the portrait of the Mona Lisa", any being you can't talk/connect, respond, or ask is obviously not a being, just a concept of one. Sheesh Those assholes, they bring shame to us otakus.

    So.... how does the 2d girl consent? How does this guy know that Asahina doesn't want to marry me?

    He should probably go to therapy....

    HERE IS A BETTER IDEA: Why not draw the marriage certificate and ceremony? That way, it will exist in the 2D world and you don't have to make an absurd law over it.
