Hi everyone! I'm writing a paper for my Class about love. I didn't want to write the same old boring concept so I decided to explore the concept of "virtual love." I want to know why some people here prefer the girls in anime/manga, movies, or tv shows over the "real deal." No one is here to judge, I just want real data and opinions to write a non-biased essay about this topic. The questions I'm looking to explore are:

*how did you find out you prefer 2d? or why did you give up on real people?

*why do some people prefer 2d girls?

*whats better about 2d than 3d?

*view on dating-sims and eroge/ visual novels

*do your friends know or how do you go on about it with friends. also are your friends into that?

* I'll be coming up with more questions as my creative juices get flowing

I want to hear everyone's opinions and thoughts about this subject.

If you come up with other questions feel free to ask them

2D girls don't talk back to you when you shout at them.

I had a friend tell me that my love of 2D was disturbing. I stopped being his friend, I don't like bias sheep. Any way 2D is a lot better and more beautiful and perfect than 3d girls

because 2d girls will never leave you, judge you, or make you cry of sadness >.<

But in all seriousness I don't really know. I recently got into playing with eroge/visual novels and quite enjoy them. I actually own SCHOOL DAYS and a few others on my computer. It feels satisfying to see yourself in a good ending with the girls..

I've also been reading h-manga and doujins since high school and regular "XXX" does't get me excited at all. Only h-manga and doujins.

Guys, I just realized and thought to myself...I need help >.<

good point. "2D is a lot better and more beautiful and perfect than 3d girls."

Is it that anime visuals have set an unrealistic view of females? The soft kawaii voice, the clumsy way of doing things, the perfect bodies that know no age.

I can't believe I'm doing this but I will literally answer your questions.


*how did you find out you prefer 2d? or why did you give up on real people?
When I started to have a few crushes, though I haven't given up on real people.

*why do some people prefer 2d girls?
I can't speak on behalf of everyone, but I do because A. As drawings they can have as many perfections/imperfections as the artist desires and B. They can behave in whatever way the creator wants, and could essentially make the perfect wife type of character if they wanted. Those archetypes mean they can broadly appeal to many different viewers.

*whats better about 2d than 3d?
Maybe it seems over-glorified since humans always wish they can have what they can't. Also refer to my points in the previous reply.

*view on dating-sims and eroge/ visual novels
I can't say since I've never played any.

*do your friends know or how do you go on about it with friends. also are your friends into that?
I have one friend who is and he openly admitted it conversation one time because I don't think he cared. He said he preferred it because the camera angles show what's going on better.

nice analysis. thanks for the help. "because 2d girls will never leave you, judge you, or make you cry of sadness"

I know what you mean with the general sense of acceptance. The fact that eroge/visual novels seem to put you in the story give that deeper connection.

also liked this part > "I've also been reading h-manga and doujins since high school and regular "XXX" does't get me excited at all. Only h-manga and doujins."

another point of anime style visual being more attractive than real life? Most might view XXX out there as very sloooty (misspelled on purpose lol) Its always heavy makeup girls who are mildly attractive at best in the same scenes as always. In the other hand H is drawn to a specific crowd and to be as erotic as possible. The fact that it can be drawn means they could always invent new scenarios to get the crowd going (aka tentacles lol).

Well I'm not a guy and I don't really prefer 2-D people to 3-D people...

I'm probably gonna get a lot of hate from posting this but, I think it's a form of escapism.

In a world where everything is controlled by one person, it's very easy to idealize everything. Reality is hard because no matter what dreams you have, when you wake up you'll be back to living your own mundane life, and no matter what you do you cannot escape that. Girls in 2-D will always act in a certain way (eg. a tsundere will always act like one) and when one anime/manga is over, a person can always move on to the next one. The situation may be different but a character of a certain archetype will always act a certain way. There's no chance that she's gonna walk out on you since she's not real. Whereas 3-D people will come and go. There's comfort in knowing that 2-D girls will never leave you.

Thanks for helping me out with this, its really appreciated.

i liked how you mentioned archetypes. Thats another good point, there's an archetype for everyone! theres yandere/ tsundere for the masochist, theres the moe for those that seek a cute girl they could protect and care for, The strong willed protectors you see in harems for those weaker who want a big bad girl.

Also i like how you mention " humans always wish they can have what they can't." I feel that has alot to do with this topic and is a real key point. one example that came to mind is the sis-con scene. It was taboo when until (in my opinion) Oreimo made it quite famous. Also love with vampires, demons, succubi, and other unrealistic creatures happen in anime compared to the real world.
