Isn't that the same as falling in love with a celebrity?

Nah, who cares. They're made to be appealing, y'know? They may be animated but you can still wanna get with them, regardless of whether or not they're real. It's unhealthy when people reject real relationships because of their preoccupation with anime characters or actually think one is their gf/bf. Overall, though, it's whatever.

Somewhere you have to start feeling something for the characters if you're willing to devote time to read/watch their 'lives'. Like many mentioned, it's part of the writer/artists job to have you attracted emotionally to at least one character. Why else would you return to their work? A story may have an excellent plot concept, but the characters are the ones making it unfold and it becomes so much easier for you to immerse yourself in it when you can actually relate and/or feel for those characters.

Still, I agree with the idea that no one was born to judge what was normal and abnormal. Normality is subjective, as is a great many other things. If someone understands there's a line between reality and fiction and they still rather live in the world of fiction instead of reality 24/7, then fine, that's their decision and I'll respect that. However, I have to admit that I tend to take a step back and turn around when people start going on about how a character is theirs and to back off. It's fine if done playfully, but some are so dead serious 'bout it that you just want to smash their head against something...
