In 2008, a Japanese otaku made headlines with his online petition pleading to legalise marriage with a two-dimensional (i.e. anime and comics) character.
In 2010, a Korean guy has taken a step further with a special ‘wedding’ in March…
28-year-old Mr Lee got ‘married’ with his dakimakura – a body pillow from Japan often with a picture of an anime-like character printed on the side – in a special ceremony. In Lee’s case, his bride is a pillow with an image of Fate Testarossa from anime series Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. [via Metro]
I bet the bride didn’t consent the marriage. She couldn’t say “I Do.”
