So I've been watching Kurokami: The Animation here on crunchyroll to kill time (and it's actually pretty good too--albeit only an iffy quality dub and no sub is available) and one of the main things touched upon by the show is the idea of doppelgangers (strangers or apparitions who have a physical appearance markedly similar or almost exactly the same as your own). Doppelgangers and the bad luck they are said to bring as noted by popular culture are basically central to the entire plot of the anime (won't say more to avoid spoiling anything).

So, I wanted to ask if any of you have met, seen or dealt with a doppelganger in your lifetime and what your experience with them was like. Personally, although I don't think I had any related bouts of bad luck, I did have to deal with the effects of having a doppelganger of myself attending the same (large) university as me back when I was in school. There were quite a few awkward moments of people walking up to me randomly as if they knew me on campus and in town and what not and people saying they saw me in places I wasn't (even professors during class time which was even more awkward). Furthermore, I'm sure I caught a glimpse of my doppelganger once while I was about to go eat lunch in one of the school's cafeterias. She didn't see me given she was looking another direction and I was hidden in the middle of a crowd, but the moment I saw her an extremely foreboding feeling took hold so I followed my instincts and got out of there as fast as I could without bringing attention to myself.

So yeah, what are your experiences?

These sorts of stories make me feel scared for some reason.

I've never encountered any doppelganger, maybe because I don't believe anyone can have the exact same features as me.
I just believe my features are unique to have a duplicate. I have curly hair, big forehead and prominent jaws, not a lot of Asian male have these features, at least not all 3 at once.

Nope, haven't seen mine yet, but hell that'd be creepy if it did happen

I have never met my doppelganger, I have had friends and family try to introduce me to girls they know that "OMG look just like you" and the only similarity is that we both have red hair. its stupid and insulting because one of the girls weighed about 200 lbs more than I do and the other was completely cock-eyed >_> but I guess if they were my doppelganger's then all of the bad luck went to them first.

never met em, but as far as i can count people i know have seen about 20 of me in other parts of the world that i've never been to.

if you met them, and are posting here wouldn't that mean you indirectly killed your doppelganger? and hows your luck recently?

Everyone has a doppelganger and they have infinite amounts of them since there are infinite parallel universes containing one duplicate of you. You also have to take into account that there are infinite timelines which are realities themselves that contain one duplicate of you per timeline.

That wouldn't really matter though, because you couldn't ever meet them. I wanna meet my doppelganger! ^_^

I think it'd be fun.

I'd also think it'd be funny to watch someone else meet their doppelganger. Especially if both of them think the whole "if you meet your doppelganger, you're gonna die" superstition is true. They'd both freak out. It'd be fun to watch.

Yeah, you can. You can enter the other Universes. There are no real barriers between other realities.

I've met my doppelganger. We look and sound like each other. Though I haven't met him in more than 7 years I met someone about 5 months ago that claimed he knew me. How the **** should I know he know my former classmate?

In my oppinion doppelgangers are more of an irritation than bad luck

Haven't met my own double, but I've been told by my friends that they have seen me, alone in someplace that they went to when in fact I was somewhere else with some other friends on that date. And the place the "other me" went to was far from home too...which I wouldn't have gone alone if I ever really wanted to go there in the first place.

Yup, needless to say I was bewildered when my friends told me that.

It might even bi-location. This is the ability to be in two places at once.

None that I know of. And I wish I won't be having a Doppelganger. It's not even cool it is really creepy.
