How can someone get married when they carry that around you ask? Seems simple to me drop the pillow talk!!! My god people!? Why do you not understand what you're doing to yourself?!

It's people like this that make me feel better about myself. I would NEVER do anything that resembles this.


Like the guy who married a cut-out of himself?

There is something to be said for predictability and most if not all the girls(and guys) in anime and manga do tend to fall into rather easily defined stereotypes. OTOH "Familiarity breeds contempt" is not a truism for nothing.

Na, It's learning about and striving to find delight in the differences between us that makes a true long term relationship possible. Particularly those differences intrinsic to gender. Think of a good relationship as a couple learning to dance together.

Pardon my excuse for not really posting anything ever since I joined CR. Since this question really grabbed my attention, I would like to put in my two cents.

It is true that these characters were made by someone else's imagination... however, after paying much attention to storylines and personalities of many different series, I want to categorize this in a general context. It seems to me that based on the characters upbringing (the explanations that follows suit during the series) we find out their different personalities. I strongly believe, that it can be possible for real girls to act like anime girls, and look like them (to an extent except the huge iris's for eyes... you can thank the influence of Disney for that, sad I know v.v) . In today's real world, we are totally bombarded with tons of knowledge, thanks to the thing we call the Internet...which can easily distract us from being in touch with a possible paradigm freeing us from stereotyping and racist comments. Am I saying that the Japanese got it right? I can not answer that question for you, however, the creators/directors and everyone else had some sort of involvement into bringing these characters to life. I also believe where two or more are gathered for any purpose can cause a dramatic effect on the real world.... wow, I apologize for rambling on, I really cant just give a simple answer can I? lol

Short answer, Yes it is possible. As a guy, do I wish girls looked and acted like girls in anime? First, It depends on which anime, because certain characters in different series, I believe, should never be released in the real world (could cause havoc/chaos/etc). Second, I'm not sure if the huge iris's can be pulled off IRL and not look like an alien, ya know? Lastly, but not least, The way they dress? I would love to see that

Considering the body proportions and eye sizes, I wouldn't want girls to look like anime girls. In reality, they would look horrendously alien-like, haha.

But, I think having strange hair colors like purple or blue, while natural in anime, would also look kind of cool in real life if done right. And if I ever met someone with anime-style hair, I would be beyond impressed.

I think if anime girls became a real life paradigm we should go all the way and all get turned into Rei-clones. That way there would never be a gender or appearance based conflict ever again.

then again Identity theft would be rampant...

Then again again I'd be a girl... Nevermind.

If they bust into my room scantly clad out of thin air, or land on my face with soft white panties from the sky. Yes, sign me up.

Higarashi? School Days? Highschool of the Dead? Deadman Wonderland? Elfen Leid? NO, VERY MUCH NO.

Also would it be just the girls or would it be the whole package. Ie Tokyo tower constantly having a 'bad day' , the fate of the world resting events in a middle school in japan, Vertical tanks with vulnerable joints being the pinnacle of military technology... etc.


you know... that last one would be kinda cool.

if we could pick only the good parts having anime-esque events happen in real life might not be so bad...

--- In my opinion ---

Some may want them to be like those in the Anime. Probably some of those so called Otaku. I'm personally don't want to cause, why should they? I would say that "girls great just the way they are". They don't have to be like those people on the shows who doesn't even exists.
