erika-tsubomi-heart-catch-precure-by-nardack.jpg

A wife disgusted after finding out her husband is a creepy Precure fan begs random strangers for help in coming to grips with the fact she is stuck with a horrible lolicon for a husband.

The initial query made by a concerned wife on Yahoo! Japan’s “Knowledge Bag” (Yahoo! Answers):

“My husband is secretly recording Precure in his room… it’s so gross I’m in my room crying!

He doesn’t seem to realise I know yet and still tells me he loves me, but I can’t help but think he prefers little girls to me and is some kind of lolicon! How can I recover from this…

About him: he’s 26 and admits to liking Kamen Rider and American comics. I’m really shocked, I thought he had no hobbies.”

The “best answer”:

“What does it matter what interest your husband has if it isn’t causing bother to you?

My friend’s husband is in his late forties and is a huge Kamen rider fan – he spent $500 on a henshin belt. We all found that pretty cute!

Another friend’s husband is a huge Pokemon fan and still buys Pokemon games and goods.

I know another who is a shoujo manga otaku – it seems Precure has lots of cute girls and is popular with anime otaku.

He’s probably not even a lolicon, he probably just loves 2D girls in a pure sort of way.

However old they are, men are still boys at heart. That’s just how they are, although of course there are those who aren’t, but let’s forgive them their hobbies!

Would you rather a husband obsessed with fishing who went off with his pals each and every weekend to catch fish? He’d live for fishing, not for you.

If it’s not getting in the way of family life, you should leave it at that.

By the way, I’m a “Harlequin” [a popular publisher of romance novels] otaku myself, and at first I hid that from my husband, but now I just read them openly.

It doesn’t bother anyone and I’ve no intention of giving it up.”

For once, it seems a happy ending may be in the offing – the original complainant responds:

“Everyone, thanks for your answers!

I watched Heart Catch with my husband, and I’m hooked…

Erika is cute!”

    Kudos, to you my friend. We only become that when we stop being who we are really.

    I hope that bastard ishihara would lighten up and give up all this nonesense before he destroys something precious

    Damn true that, there's no point abandoning a youthful hobby just because we are aging and getting older. This is the reason why I respect those figure and toy reviewers in Youtube; married yet still collecting like a true man.

    I was browsing the games section of a toy store some years ago, and this little old lady, I'm talking 60s-70s here, had this huge stack of games in her arms... all sorts, from kids games to hardcore, and she asks me politely to grab GTA3 off the top shelf for her, so I did, commenting that someone was getting an awesome christmas.... the woman laughed and said 'pffff, hell no, these are for me.'

    I went to Japan as an exchange student and my host mother came to me one day in a panic saying that she had caught her husband watching Pretty Cure 5 alone in his room one day. She acted like it was the most disgusting thing in the world.

    I lol'd. Japanese housewives are way too quick to judge others; no wonder their husbands indulge in the purity 2D animation.

    I don't understand why otakuism is so embarrassing to them, but fawning over Celine Dion or other divas or obsessing over American TV dramas or $3000 brand name shoes is any less embarrassing.

    It's because of some ugly-retard otakus made many terrible crimes and cases relating to them in the past so people nowadays think otakus as a trash.

    You make no sense. It's a cultural thing and no less.

    While I do agree with most of the stuff you wrote being 'some' of the main causes the otaku population being target of descrimination by the majority, I don't think 'cosplaying' being one of them.
    Despite some fan cosplays look ridiculous, that doesn't make them offensive just hilarious.

    Boy, good to see you really got to know your husband before committing to married life!

    SRSLY this is why Japan especially (and Western marriage, nuclear family, etc) are FUCKED. Because lots of people would be shallow enough to start looking for a divorce right about here.

    "Boy, good to see you really got to know your husband before committing to married life!"

    That's probably because most women are more interested about how deep is the pocket of their potential husband, rather than what he's really like.

    Like the other article which shown the result of the research...nearly 80% of Japanese women prefer marrying rich ugly guy instead of poor good looking guy.

    The one where Erika sells her panties was really special. I absolutely loved the story, and I don't think I've ever seen a loli enjoy herself in such a great way.

    You got anything else at a similar standard of quality?

    She obviously was ratcheting up the drama, but her use of "shock" is as ambiguous as someone saying that a strange tasting meal is "interesting"... we can't know the delivery really without hearing it. And women are masters of passive aggression and spin. She posted to get discussion. She chose her words. Notice that she avoids saying he's an otaku. She brands the GENRE as otaku, and brands her husband as 無趣味 (mushumi) ("hobbyless") which is a criticism itself, as in "dull" or refering to a person's lack of interests as a bad thing... I take her tone to be "I feel horrible. Here is why. What now? P.S. Here is what he says. I have learned something about him." It's so tremendously bland that it could only be written by a Japanese. And literal translation lays out a whole shooting gallery of bullshit trollery. Who knows. She picked her words.
