As ever, one group are doing more than their fair share to ensure Japanese remain single and sexless – none other than the doll fanciers, who once again supply cute dolls and superb photography aplenty as their argument for the best type of girlfriend being the ball-jointed kind.

    The Doll Liberation Front will soon enact a ban to stop the exploitation of these ball-jointed, down-trodden, girls! We will start in Tokyo, where it is easy to get the Cult of Ishihara to ban just about anything they don't like! EQUALITY FOR THE PLASTIC!

    Such a peaceful hobby.

    It's no wonder it draws so much antagonism. Most humans can't appreciate the thought of others enjoying themselves with anything that lies outside their little horizons.

    True, my hobbies aren't exactly the highest on my friends list of things to do or talk about. Hell I enjoy a good night out wih the buds as much as anyone else, but I don't listen to rap, which they do. I don't care much for american sports although I will watch the playoffs or finals of particular sports since those to me are always "When the teams play like they want to win."

    SO when the topic of conversation comes up when "Hey, you catch the game last night for basketball, A. football, etc. I usually don't/can't participate in the convo, since I happened to catch the last episode of anime X Y and Z instead.

    me and my nephews or my sister go to the local anime conventions since i'm one of the few fortunate to have "converted" more than half my family into an "anime watching family." Not something my usual friends would be interested in going to and spending 8 hours there O_o

    I enjoy a good videogame as much as the next guy but for everyone else I grew up with, it seems that they either A. grew out of such games or B. "It's all about the FPS on the 360" which I'm not too much of a fan of.

    If my "Peaceful Hobbies" make me a sort of loner or shut-in or whatever the hell it's called nowadays a majority of the time, then so be it.

    "...humans can't appreciate the thought of others enjoying themselves..."

    So I can't have fun all by myself? Without bothering others? Hypocrisy.

    "You are forgetting that they are"

    FTFY

    Also, you're forgetting that they will never give you a blowjob, don't have real girl parts, will never buy you material items, will never surprise you with surprise sex, will never give you a meaningful and loving smile.... the list goes on.

    That would entirely depend on the meaning of surprise sex.

    I think he meant 'sex outside of routinely defined time spans for it, that is not your initiative.'
    It happened to be 'normal sex' in pretty much all occasion in my life when I had any.

    so you got surprise sex? or you know some1 that does?

    They can't really be "waiting" - since they are not alive. A CAT may wait for you to come home... a piece of plastic will sit there until you do something.

    By all means, most of the photos are very well done and the dolls them selves are high quality and look great.

    7:40 "You forgetting, they are cute, adorable, won't ever cheat on you, and they are always waiting for your return home."

    This made me think of what would happen if I got killed while I was out, and my dolls just kept standing around waiting for me to come home.

    It was like one of those artsy, poignant animes about androids.

    It's not often I read something that completely alters my views and shakes me to the core.

    I have been guilty of this, and yet with such grace and humility you explained my internal fallacy.

    However brief my life, I will not forget this important lesson you have bestowed upon me.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    There is a difference between a hobby and and distorted reality. The workmanship, clothes and photos of these dolls LOOK great. By all means, give credit where credit is due.

    But some dollfie collectors treat and talk to their dolls as if they are real. As the article says "one group are doing more than their fair share to ensure Japanese remain single and sexless" for which, if a person is already lonely - this is what could happen.

    I'm more bothered by the face, for most of them it just looks too inhuman (uncanny valley).
    But I have to admit I liked some of the dolls, like the Homura or this one is really beautiful
    http://img3.sankakustatic.com/wp-content/gallery/dolls/dolls-lovely-dolls-145.jpg

    Too bad the good looking dolls are even more expansive than the already ridiculous expansive normal ones.

    These guys have great camera skills and good sense of doll posing, probably because they do this all the time.

    Uncanny valley is when something looks TOO human... hence "uncanny"...

    Not really. It's when it looks almost human, but not exactly, and the effect is more unsettling than something less human, like, uh... WALL-E. Or a stick figure. Or a toad alien.

    It adds a certain eye appeal seeing the ball-joints in my case. Allows for more variation for picture posing anyway at a basic level if anything.

    Only figure I have atm is the Nathan Drake Figure that came with the collectors edition of Uncharted 3 and I wish now after a month of displaying him that he had ball joints or some articulation points so I could pose him in his various melee finisher stances, probably buy another figure or a mook (if they ever make them) from the Uncharted series so I can pose them in those positions.

    Alas, all he does is stand there, AK on one side, staring towards the opposite side, looking bad ass, but nothing more :'(
