The 5 Creepiest Phone Wallpapers: “#2 = Anime”

infinite-stratos-phone-wallpaper.jpg

Japanese women asked what they think the most undesirable things to see serving as mobile phone wallpaper display none-too surprising resistance to seeing any “childish” anime characters featuring, considering the holders of such phones so creepy only abject narcissists were considered more undesirable.

The results of the survey, with the charming comments of the ladies questioned:

Q: Please indicate the wallpapers likely to worsen your impression of someone?

1. A picture of themselves – 20.7%

“Gross.”

“Anyone who did that must be a creepy narcissist.”

“Why would anyone do this?”

“Frighteningly narcissistic.”

2. An anime character – 16.9%

“Maybe an anime character would be OK, but one from a shoujo manga would be gross!”

“A character from a minor title would creep me out…”

“It’s just childish.”

3. Their lover – 9.9%

“Annoying!”

“You feel they are showing off.”

“Impossible if it were me.”

4. A celebrity – 8.6%

“It depends on the person, but an idol would absolutely make me recoil.”

“Gravure would certainly be gross.”

“Come back to reality.”

5. Their husband or wife – 7.4%

“Anyone but their kids would be icky.”

“I’d look upon this rather coldly.”

“A little gross.”

    "5. Their husband or wife – 7.4%"

    If you still love your waif why not put them in your phone? I don't get it why it got 7.4%. Are the participants jealous single fags?

    I'd think it largely depends on the anime... Even the quote's seem to go that way, "minor title" and "shoujo manga".

    But still, it's everyones own decision on what to put there... And do these chicks keep watch over their boyfriends cell phones or something? That doesn't sound creepy at all...

    People who are insecure about their romantic future like to knowingly maintain a false illusion that everyone they know is a potential romantic partner.

    They don't act upon it, it just governs certain preferences to make them feel better about their chances.

    Seeing someone happily keeping a pic of their wife/hubby on their phone goes against the idea that anyone they know could someday be their partner.

    Therefore, it's something they dislike.

    Sorry, but if you have a lover - a wife - or you like a certain hot celebrity, what the flying fuck is wrong with having them on your phone as a wallpaper?

    I mean seriously... it's your phone, random people shouldn't look at your stuff in the first place - GTFO my phone you nosey bitch!

    No shit... so WHAT is allowed? A car, a motorcycle? jet fighter?

    Having a photo of their lover or their kids should be a good sign, no?

    I think there is something wrong with these women.

    On my old phone I had it set to a nekomimi loli from an eroge. One of my female coworker asked to see my phone and saw the image, she thought it was cute.good thing she doesn't know where it was from.

    Pedobear gives that the Seal of Approval Gold.

    But sadly, if you were in Amereactionarica, the FBI probably would waste their time trying to get you V& for possessing virtual images of nonexistent fictional female characters. After all, they don't need to try and stop the mass shootings that happen once a week since every ordinary citizen is armed with guns and capable of taking out any shooter. Oh wait.

    These people aren't "normal".

    It's wrong to have a picture of your wife as your phone background? Wat?

    The only one I can really understand here is having a picture of yourself as your phone background... that's just... kind of weird.

    Yeah, those Japanese women definitely aren't normal.

    Or at least in North America, it's quite normal and socially accepted to see people with photos of their girlfriend/boyfriend or spouse or children, or simply photos of friends and family (self being included is fine too) as wallpaper.

    (@ the anon above me)
    Or ya know..they want to see their loved ones whenever they open their phone? They're only 'showing off' if they're actually making or pushing you to look at their pictures. But if the background to their private systems that they use on a regular bases 9 times out of 10 has nothing to do with anyone else, let alone wanting to show off or flaunt it. Personally I think it's sweet if my partner has a picture of me as their background on their phone/computer.

    I'm pretty sure you just hate people, cause if you're judging people on their phone backgrounds, you're the one with the issue.(just like the nutcases who took this survey)

    I think it's kind of sweet that someone does that, to me, it makes them seem more human. And you can ask them about their family if you're the kind of person who enjoys talking to others.

    Liru for the last 5 and a half years. I got bored going back and making larger Res crops every time I switched phones and I made a vector of the image now so I am pretty much set for the future and high Res devices.

    And obviously no worries about any woman seeing it or disapproving, as you have no wife or girlfriend, and never will have.
