I found myself needing a reality check with Belldandy in Ah! My Goddess. *blush* I'm dumb.

If I had kept Belldandy's Husband up, I could have turned it into a wrestling gimmick. Perry Saturn had Moppy. AJ Lee's an anime fangirl in real life.

I've been told I fooled a lot of older and educated ASMBers into believing I was for real. My obsession with anime back then was real, but the crush on Belldandy while excluding real girls was contrived. Looking back, I'm pretty embarrassed at the heaping amount of bad anime I watched. I've watched 655 different anime now and I regret half of them.

What is an ASMBer? Anyway, I can't speak for anyone else, but for me personally I haven't a fallen in love with an anime character in that sense. Now, as an example, I have been intrigued by certain characters like Yayoi Shinozuka from White Album. Seemingly she wanted to break up Yuki and Touya - or at least prevent them from seeing each other. What I found interesting was out of all the options she could think of she chose to be Yuki's replacement so he'd forget all about her. Really though, I believe it was more than that and that's what's so intriguing about her character. I liked her.

OMG, being attracted to anime characters is fine by me! just don't lose yourself. I mean, of course it is inevitable to have some sort of romantic infatuation with a character because as humans, it is our natural tendency to lean towards what we don't have. BUT, realize that they are just fictional players created by a wonderful (perhaps schizophrenic) artist/author with some pen and paper.

HAve a nice DAy~

Adult Swim message boarder.

White Album proved to me 1) just how dead non-Key/Type-Moon visual novel anime is and 2) how dead period pieces set before 2007 are now. I got the same rage upon watching Kimagure Orange Road, Maison Ikkoku, Marmalade Boy, and Boys Over Flowers. So much of that drama simply wouldn't happen today thanks to cell phones! The least they could do is give the characters those clunky bricks! At least it's accurate to the time period! Land lines are SO obsolete now! I just can't wrap my head around it anymore, and for someone who spent the better part of his childhood through the Clinton administration, that's saying something!

Even stuff from the early 2000s is starting to show its age. I cringe every time I see someone use a flip phone now.

I was volunteering at an anime convention and one of the panels I was working was "How to Land a Fan Boy". What suprised me was how cute (especially in cosplay) some of the girls in line for the panel were.

Just chatting them up I said "What could you be doing wrong? Guys basically need two things: (1) A pulse. (2) #1 is optional."

Then one of the girls said something that floored me.

She said "To Fanboys, anime girls are perfect. How do we compete with that?"

What the girls didn't tell you is they read the sign, and translated it as "How To Land That One Fan Boy You Want That's Never Met You And That You're Meant To Be With"

Back on Adult Swim's boards, I remember encountering a RIF (Rabid Inuyasha Fan) who had a massive crush on Sesshomaru to the point where she thought he was a real person! For fuck sake, HE'S A CARTOON CHARACTER! I myself had a persona on that site as an equally rabid Belldandy fanboy, but that was just a parody of hardcore basement-dwelling Internet otaku. I don't always go on the AS boards now, but when I do, I still see no shortage of Belldandy marks. They never cease to amuse me.

I agree with you. I am attracted to some anime characters but I guess its just me hoping that there is people out there with the same personality or something. You know some kind of girl fantasies

I don't think its abnormal to have a crush on an anime char. as long as you realize that they are just "Pixels" .
Hell. i'll admit it i have a extreme crush on "Rias Gremory" from Highschool DxD. :3 <3

Should be fine as long as the relationship is healthy ( in that you don't marry your psp ) and you're not ghastly pale after a few days.

Haha very interesting topic I can relate. (Just because my picture is of characters of AKB0048 doesn't mean I have a crush on them). I have has a crush on girls in anime plainly because of their personality. In other words because they have characteristics of my dream girl or how I would like my girlfriend to be like (don't have one though).
