Top 10 Hobbies Even A Hot Guy Won’t Be Forgiven

sonico-collection

A survey revealing 50% of Japanese women quizzed believed that there are interests which disbar even a hot guy from romantic consideration – and that all of the most despised of these relate to anime, managing to displace even the likes of “lolicon,” “prostitution” and “gambling” from the top spots – has been inflaming opinion online as usual.

The ranking, with comments from the several hundred females surveyed:

1. Anime

“It just has always had a strong association with ‘otaku’ so it’s totally unacceptable.” – 34-year-old woman

“I don’t normally watch anime so I can’t imagine we could have anything to talk about. Even if he was hot, if we have nothing to talk about…” – 26-year-old woman

“This just leaves a childish impression.” – 24-year-old woman

2. Bishoujo figures

“You’d just be grossed out to go in a hot guy’s room and see he has figures of girls in there!” – 25-year-old woman

“If he likes anime or whatever I guess that’s OK, but it’s creepy to display figures like that.” – 27-year-old woman

3. Gambling

“Guys into betting may well be in debt.” – 29-year-old woman

4. Idols

“If he weren’t spending that much on it I could live with it, but these guys have a reputation for endlessly spending their money on this stuff…” 23-year-old woman

“You can’t help but think any guy who likes idols is an Akiba-type.” – 24-year-old woman

5. Lolicon

“I’m not going with anyone with special sexual fetishes.” – 26-year-old woman

“Even if he isn’t doing anything suspect, this is just incomprehensible!” – 30-year-old woman

6. Crossdressing

“Even a hot guy is out if he’s into this stuff!” – 32-year-old

7. Porn collecting

“If he has a few books I don’t care, but if he had a lot it is gross!” – 26-year-old woman

8. Trains

“I’ve heard these people spend money on train sets and photography. And a lot of them are very passionate about their interests.” – 29-year-old woman

9. Insect collecting

“Keeping and rearing insects is just gross!” – 25-year-old woman

10. Prostitution

“Sometimes there are guys who treat this as a hobby, but I can’t tolerate it!” – 30-year-old woman

Aside from the obvious question of how the results would have differed had the word “hot” been replaced with “rich,” the loathing with which many Japanese women single out otaku-related hobbies has many men on the defensive:

“They really hate anime more than gambling? Seriously now?”

“Since when are prostitutes a hobby?”

“Who even cares what hobbies bother some 34-year-old woman.”

“And isn’t lolicon a sexual disposition rather than an interest or hobby?”

“Glad I’m not a hoy guy. Let me get back to watching anime now.”

“Honestly, how can any woman really be more bothered about a hot guy being interested in trains or beetles than him frequenting brothels all the time?”

“What is wrong with catching insects!”

“There is unexpected toleration for lolicon… and anime is really worse than this?”

“Can it you old hags. Young women these days are all watching anime.”

“Sorry, I have figures on display and I like anime.”

“BBAs are below these hobbies anyway.”

“Figures are out, lucky I only have dakimakura isn’t it!”

“They are just insulting hobbies they refuse to accept. If they were confronted with Gackt’s love of Gundam they would soon change their tune.”

“Gaming isn’t in there for some reason…”

“Apart from eroge and MMO obsessives everyone plays games these days.”

“Blame smartphone casual games.”

“Even with no offensive hobbies an ugly guy has no chance.”

“Even with girls, someone with no otaku-type interests is bound to be boring to talk to.”

“3D can go to hell.”

“I’m just glad I’m ugly so none of this applies to me!”

“Conclusion: 2D >>> 3D”

    Anime was ranked higher then Prostitution?...PROSTITUTION WAS AT THE BOTTOM??? I think it's safe to say no one should ever listen to these delusional hags, even if their begging for their lives.

    They date/marry for money after all, so a bit of professional courtesy to their guild. Who knows in another 10 years or so without the prospect of a rich husband and fading "beauty", they might have to walk the streets.

    I can understand people being turned off by gambling because it's an addiction, but the people being surveyed ought to be a little more tolerant. Watching anime or collecting figurine is a little different but isn't indicative of a weak character or a mental illness.

    True that.

    All of the others can actually qualify as normal hobbies.

    I think idols are a better investment than random old hags. Not only they're hotter, you can probably resell your stuff after you get bored of one. Old hags will take away half or more of your money if you try to get rid of them.

    Unlike certain hypocrites who won't admit to their natural desires, I think prostitution is alright.

    As long as the women selling the service are doing it out of their free will and their patrons respect the women's rights and privileges outside their jobs, there should be nothing wrong about paid sex.

    In fact, I have far more respect and admiration for prostitutes than razorblade bitches who play with your feelings and promise you Heaven; prostitutes have the balls to be upfront about who they are and what they want while simultenously risking their lives via HIV and violent murderous men.

    Agree. I walk past several pachinko parlours on the way to the station every day, and every morning there are about a dozen guys standing there waiting to go in at the 9am opening time or whatever. It's really messed up.

    I wouldn't be so quick to judge a gambler either. If anyone reading this simply sees it as a sin then they might as well stop reading. The rest of us who can be reasonable, consider that we all gamble in one way or another all the time. And most people gamble with money now and then but they're not really any worse off for it and it does them no harm. If it was a hobby, like any other hobby (including the other ones on this list), then there should be no problem with it unless it gets out of hand. I don't gamble, but if I met a gambler I wouldn't immediately assume that it's a problem.

    Even if any of these hobbies go too far, I can't stand that people would not be able to look past these things to get to know these people otherwise so that maybe they'd find out that they are great enough to make the effort to help them out of their problem.

    you obviously don't understand the meaning. a gambler is not a guy who goes out and play poker with his friends. a gambler is a guy who comes back home and gives expensive gifts to his wife one day, and the next he tells his wife to pack because he lost the house in a gamble, but it doesn't stop there because then after losing all his resources he one days comes back to his wife and tells him goodbye, he answers should I pack? he says no, this time i gambled the house and i lost it, with you included.
    My great great grandfather was like that, and my GGG. had to run away from him because of that, so i am not joking.

    My guess is that they always interview women who are at the age of marriage = ~25-35
    And as people know... the older the unmarried women, the more desperate they get... and one of the reasons for not being married at those ages is that they are very picky :D

    No, they're still looking (and getting more desperate) because they were so picky in the first place.

    wtf.. PirateKing never make such demand, but the old hag did..

    34 years old talk down a hot guy just because he is into anime is just demanding.

    These old hag should look at the mirror and count their wrinkles first before lamenting a guy for a harmless hobby.
