So most anime gals and guys are literally made to cater to a specific fetish or group: you got your glasses girls, your tsunderes, your yanderes (oh yes, all the yanderes) all the way up to Tsundere Glasses Girl Imouto Yanderes.


Which is totes a thing. I got the terrabyte of images from pixiv to prove it, yo.


But how amazing, if at all, would anime girls (or guys) be in real life? Even though these characters are literally designed to appeal to a certain taste or group, would the gals you go for in anime at all be the sort of girl or guy you would want to slay the demon king with?

Could you have a nice picnic with a character from a slice of life show, or would the moe sweetness fill you up before you even opened the bento she diligently and loving created for you (even tho' of course she's a bad cook).


I've had experiences with gals who are straight up archetypes from anime or other media. Was wondering if anyone else has, what your experiences were like, or if you haven't, what you think it'd be like.

The thing is, if you are dating a person because they act like an anime character you are not dating a person, you are dating an archetype.

It occurs to me that there are a heck of a lot of anime gals of varying types who think nothing of assaulting guys for the slightest of offenses.

That's a lot of girls I'd stay away from in real life if I were a guy, no matter how darned cute or otherwise appealing to my fetishes they were!

never met someone who was like an anime character... only seen ppl who looked like anime characters as in cosplayers.

If I met someone who was like an anime character, I'd avoid them.

I'd rather they stay on screen, not the street.

Let's consider your most thoroughly detailed character description: a tsundere meganekko imouto yandere.

Personally, I wouldn't be comfortable with discovering that a girl I consider to be a little sister to dote upon has been stalking me, threatening/attacking/murdering anyone who she thinks has "gotten too close to oneechan", and who responds to my doting with disgust and anger while secretly enjoying it. I wouldn't be especially happy to have a little sister figure who needs to be heavily medicated or institutionalized for the rest of her life to avoid being a danger to herself and others. If she were institutionalized I'd feel a mental illness/disorder had cheated her and her victims (if any) out of their lives. If she were free (but receiving treatment) I'd be worried that she'd forget/stop taking her medications, that she'd get hurt (or hurt someone else), that she might progressively get worse and ultimately have to be institutionalized anyway, it'd be terrible to see a little sister figure in constant peril.

I understand the merits of novelty, the value of fantasy. But that particular fantasy is one which is by its very nature intensely painful, and so it's one I imagine very few would be sincerely pleased to discover had become a reality.

At first I thought there is no way this could ever be a real thing.... then I actually considered it...

I have been in such situations before... (sadly? idk)

I have even had the oddly specific event of having my older twin sisters (who are not blood related to me) ambush me with a kiss each cheek randomly (that was awkward as hell)

And even thinking on my own personality I would say I fit the archetype of kuudere... it all comes down to the fact that while these archetypes are catered to certain groups it is merely an exaggerated depiction of reality or that at least it was initially based upon reality.

Whether or not I would be attracted to the same traits or not in reality though... I'm not sure, I need more data lol

It would be kind of weird because they wouldn't be the same person as you imagine them to be in the real world.

To meet an anime character in real life is to meet a professional cosplayer.
