Admiring a character or having strong liking to them is fine I guess, but by strong liking, I don't mean real love. I think that really is unhealthy - I mean yeah, we're all human, but that character or whatever it is was made up by someone else. Bottom line = they aren't real; and if anything, you'd perhaps fall in love with the person who created them.

Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this (I'm really not going through 115 pages) but there's this Japanese guy called Sal9000, and he married a video game character.

Here's the link if anyone's interested:

The game was called Love Plus, and there have been a few incidents where men became quite devoted to their virtual girlfriends while playing it. Sal9000 even had a real human priest! I still think it's wrong even if they're not hurting anyone, but it's just... very out of the box-ish?




Yea I saw that before and that's why I said it is abnormal. All this time, I though I was weird for loving anime girls, but there are other people out there that are even weirder.

I guess it's comforting to know that no matter how weird you get, there's always going to be someone weirder.

I dont' see the problem with having a crush on a anime character, just remember that real life should always take place first. Just like anything else in life. Keeping your job is more important then that video game, going to hang with real friends is better for you then that extra ep of anime (maybe watch anime with them lol). I myself have a strong crush on anime character , and my luck with the woman hasn't been that great (It's been about 13 years) but trust me, if I find that person who wants to be with me, doesn't matter what character I have a crush for, some one who can cuddle you back, will always be the best :). As long as you don't hurt another person, do what you wish, love what you want, be happy and be yourself.

reality check?................... More like a brain format.
Posted 5/7/11 , edited 5/7/11
anime is my secret passion...

those who know me would not understand I think of it as a fantasy artform..

to them I am a darker spirit who would not be drawn into the world of anime..

but it relaxes my mind...

for a little while..

loving an anime character.....futile..

but some of the male characters are drawn so well...they almost spring to life...

my little corner, I come to sometimes...to enjoy, by myself..

for now..

I go now to fly high in a circle of blackbirds...

For me...its not weird or abnormal if u are having a crush or being in love in an anime guy or gal...coz thats what we feel especially the characteristics of an anime character...in fact..im also in love with a guy character...not just one...but soooo many!!!!

i know its kind of weird...but it helps me to what man will i choose....coz of their characteristics....
but....i know all anime fans feel dissapointed...coz their having feelings for characters which is not real....




Agreed

I try not to get obsessed with fictional characters. Yes, I like some characters because they're funny, cool, charming, unpredictable, etc. And I've made some not-too-serious remarks about who's my "waifu," and who's my "husbando." But I strive to remember that most fans won't respect me if I fixate on a fictional character.

Incidentally, I've finally been able to play LovePlus, thanks to its partial fan-made translation (see this thread on the GBATemp forum: http://gbatemp.net/t272861-love-plus-english-translation-patch? ). It's not bad so far, and the characters are moe. I liked the game's 2D drawings, but found its occasional use of cel-shaded polygon graphics to be off-putting.

i'm inlove with every anime guy i lay my eyes on and it makes me EXTREMLY upset when people put the guy i like and pair him with some anime girl or seeing him and her together in the anime,manga,game and seeing people happy that they're are together makes me want to punch something(or someone XD).this is why i hate anime girls(don't flame me,this is who i am,have a problem with it,don't say anything at all this is my opinion and i'm proud of it.)

I don't think it's wrong loving an anime character i think it's normal,every day i hoped i meet him in real life and the stuff i see in the anime with him and that girl NEVER existed....sometimes i hate the harsh reality....

i just had to get this off my chest

please don't flame me,hate me or troll me

Falling in love, with... A anime?! Yes I have done this and still going! I'm not one of those crazy fan girls that have posters of anime male characters all over her room (even though that would be nice), I just love how they draw the characters and how they portray themselves.

I'll only give up Hinata to Naruto. Everyone else can go suck a lemon.

This reminds me about the topic of "violence in videogames: does it make gamers violent people?". It's all about discerning fantasy from reality. I wouldn't say it's unusual at all. I always try to empathize with the characters in the media I'm playing/watching, or at least sympathize.

So this kind of thing sometimes becomes inevitable.

I'd say it's more like "Wow, I wish I knew someone like that face-to-face" as opposed to "SHE'S REAL AND I'MM'AH MARRY HUR GUD, HUR HUR!".
