He describes how his marriage collapsed under the weight of Nene’s charms:
I did write that I divorced, but we haven’t actually filed the papers, rather I just returned to my family home.
I’m a 29-year-old systems engineer, with no children and a 28-year-old wife. It seems exaggerated to say Love Plus is to blame, but still it went like this:
- I kept coming home late every night.
- My wife became enraged.
- I said “Rather than you I think I’d much rather be welcomed home kindly by Nene-san!”
- Marriage ends.
After I said it, I thought “I’ve done it now,” but my wife was already looking at me like I was dirt, with a “this guy’s no good” look in her eyes.
He likens his wife’s expression to “how Taiga looked at Ami in the fifth episode of Toradora!” – certainly a telling description in more ways than one.
He describes later how he narrowly managed to reconcile matters with his wife, and presumably Nene as well.
With Japanese men being hounded by their jealous wives for being unfaithful with Love Plus characters, and some even taking to marrying these very characters, it seems Japan may be witnessing the future of human relationships – all that is missing is an android body for Nene…
