Bishoujo & Nekomimi Figures Most Hated by Women


The below chart is taken from a TV program which conducted a survey of commoner females, in order to discover which types of otaku paraphernalia they found most objectionable when visiting a man’s room; as you can see, any figure fans seem set to enjoy a lifetime of celibacy…


The number of surveyed ladies who indicated they would be put off by the presence of the goods is indicated below:

Any figure is NG: 4

Star Wars: 8

Lupin III: 22

Gundam: 47

Eva: 91

Animal characters: 92

Bishoujo characters: 100

“Animal characters”  apparently refers to nekomimi and similar

Moe figure fans had better be prepared to remove their collections from view if they ever hope to make a favourable impression on a commoner female, though in more extreme cases this is likely impossible.

Of course, the level of interest displayed in such figures probably corresponds inversely to the probability of a lady visiting the room in question, so perhaps it is not such a big issue?

    hmmmmm...real woman versus my new Nogizaka Haruka figure....meh, real women cost more and don't look nearly as good as Haruka. Besides, not liking my hobbies is not liking why would I want anyone who doesn't like me even to see my precious figures? Not to mention, if she has a problem with mere figures then what on earth would she think of my adult-doujinshi collection or the stack of "moe" literatue (it's art, not porn!).

    Ah I've never really collected any figures but I've met plenty of girls who like anime and probably wouldn't mind if i collected any anyway since I'd be trying my hardest to taping that ass!

    Good thing I waited until after I was married to start collecting figures. I have 30 and around another 30 on preorder. Although there are a few she doesn't know about heh heh.

    I've been the victim of the judging eyes of "commoner females" too often. And I only had one figure on the desk at the time(lately I've gotten more but I'm more careful about keeping them out of eyesight). Even though I keep my figures hidden now, I end up exposing my otakuness with posters or my cell phone strap(it's kagami-lucky star).Well, I guess it can't be helped. I hope I can meet a nice fujoshi and settle down.

    I wonder what would be the result of a poll of commoner males opinions on girls with figures.

    I recall asking the opinion of a normal woman (hypocrite, she collects figurines of mainstream characters to squee over like Sora and other bishies), and the feedback is that seeing bishoujo figures is like objectifying women.

    Well sorry ladies, we can't all be dandy boys with fabulous hair and looks.

    Here's a transcript.

    ""no, but the usual female figurines you're thinking about usually do not appeal to females because they're the stereotypical big-boobs-small-waist-huge-butt that cater to males""

    "and sometimes girls feel insulted when they look at those types of figures"

    I find it kind of weird that there are more women posting here than all the other topics on Sankaku. Either that or I failed to notice you girls regularly posting here, sorry about that. >.<

    Anyway, I think the "commoner females" are not my type of person. I mean females should like you as who your are not some figures or what and vice versa.

    Girls don't like that stuff because we'll never be able to be as skinny or perfect. =w=

    Of course, I also have a weakness for watching wonderful yuri, so maybe that helps?

    I don't understand. Is that a percentage?

    If you could answer, "any figure is NG", why would 100% of respondents also get to vote for "bishoujo figures" as well?
    One person, one vote I say. The numbers look taken out of proportion then.

    My gf has more Star Wars merchandising than me, so she's ok with my Space Marines.
    And I'm painting a FF8 Squall resin figure for her.

    I can honestly say that the female otaku of my acquaintance have many, many more figures than I do. As mentioned above, these figures may very well reverse themselves, or at least get heavily mitigated, when applied across the Pacific...

    Why do all of these threads always devolve into you boys complaining that women only like men for their money? Most women like men for their looks, personality, and education level. It just so happens that people with an acceptable level of all of those very often happen to have money. More to the point, as long as you think that women are only interested in money, women are quite unlikely to be interested in you.

    Ah, well, much as I would like to devote my life to improving the sad lives of otaku virgins, I probably have better things to do.

    And that is why the divorce level in the USA is 50%, and women initiate 70% of divorces. The truth is, women want the money without the man, which is why they get married, and then divorced more often than men.

    Misogyny is a hard habit to break. I've been working on my brother. He has it so bad that he doesn't even see it, so he can't understand what he's saying/doing to send women running. If he'd quit making such negative blanket statements about WOMEN as a whole, he'd be able to keep some around.

    He's like me, totally non-monogamous, but that can work. There are females who will accept that, just as I've found some males and females who accepted that I wasn't into closed-relationships. I hope that some day he'll become a better person. He has it in him.

    I won't say yes unless the girl offers to be perfect enough to replace them.

    Real girls can't compare to figures anyway, so their opinion doesn't matter.

    So true. But by 'figures', you mean 'love dolls', and by 'girls' you mean 'bitches', don't you?

    I'm putting it this way, because one can't do stuff with small figures and 'girls' sounds somewhat like a loli, which would make them superior, if it weren't for the 'real' you started your comment with.

    In fact, real things can never compare with somethin idealized. Just take a square or a circle. The ones in the platonic world will always be superior, but we have to adjust to te real ones anyway.

    I find this article quite funny. As for me, I don't have any figurine because I don't have the will to put money into that, even thought i'm a hardcore otaku. But if I had some, if a girl is disgusted by my hobby, I wouldn't even think twice before dumping her even before she does. That's again is what I call hypocrisy. I'm hearing a lot of things coming from women about : Beauty is what inside, you shouldn't judge a book by his cover, true love doesn't have limits. BULLSHIT!!! And don't think I'm only on women back, a lot of man are like that too. When you come from a place like where I live, people tend to look at you weirdly if they know you are a otaku (Still, I think it's like this everywhere).

    hmm, not for everyone. when i get cash, i spend it on more figures or iceblocks, sure, but the accumilation of cash is not even remotely of interest to me. my mum on the other hand is such a tight arse, she wouldn't spend $5 more on petrol at the servo near her, instead spending the extra $5 in expended petrol going to the cheapest servo in town.
