    Japanese man launches campaign to marry manga girl

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    Now stories about Japanese Otaku becoming obsessed with their favorite Anime/Manga series are quite common. But is this item carrying things a little bit too far???

    Then again, since the target of the obsession is 'Mikuru Asahina', perhaps the influence of Haruhi Suzumiya is starting to seep into our plane of existence...

    Wow... just wow... *nearly speechless*

    I've seen a lot of crazy things in my life growing up with double-personality relatives, insane (almost litertly) friends, ect, but this takes the cake for strange ideas. I have but two things to ask...

    1. Why Mikuru!?!!? Haruhi is so much better and Yuki is a VERY close second!
    2. Where can I go to signt his?

    If he's not interested in the real world, why does he need/want a legalized marriage? Couldn't he and Mikuru just live happily ever after in his fantasy lala-land without the government recognizing it as marriage? And besides, how can an imaginary character consent to marriage? Would other otaku dispute the marriage based on the fact that Mikuru can't consent?

    My head hurts, I have to stop overthinking this.

    I can picture the scene now: Tokyo will be bathed in the blood of Otaku who all fought over one anime girl (or guy in some cases). Never underestimate the audacity of obssessive Otaku.

    Pffff........... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Oh dear lord in Heaven, now that is some funny ass sh*t right there. Now I completely think that this is moronic if not down right the most retarded thing I have ever seen or heard. But at the same time I hope he succeeds just to see how all this plays out... For example, how is the Character going to consent to marriage, not to mention how the hell... Dare I say... They? Going to conceive a child if they try... If they succeed, what would they look like when they are first "born," are they going to be like little wads of paper? Oh, oh, oh, what would happen if they get a divorce because he starts cheating on her for another character, the custody battle of the "kids," and even the possession for material items such as the house, will he need to pay spousal support?
