    Re: Japanese man launches campaign to marry manga girl

    Why am I not too surprised? C'mon, the "line" has been crossed a long time ago. There have been previous incidents and such like the case of the "Lucky Star" characters: Hiiragi Kagami, Tsukasa. The two characters have been officially registered as citizens of Washimiya, in which the characters' home is based off of. There have also been "pilgrimages" and such due to the intense fan attention.

    From Wiki:
    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
    The popularity of Lucky Star also brought many of its fans to the real life settings of the anime, beginning in April 2007.[21] The August issue of the Newtype magazine ran a feature on the various locales which the anime is based on,[22] including Konata's home in Satte, Saitama, Tsukasa and Kagami's home in Washimiya, Saitama,[6] and the school in Kasukabe, Saitama.[6] The magazine also included directions on how to reach these places from the otaku hotspot Akihabara, which resulted in massive "pilgrimages" to these areas.[21]

    The most widely reported consequence of this is in the Washinomiya Shrine of Washimiya, where the Hiiragi sisters work as miko in the anime. Various Japanese news media reported that the shrine became a place teeming with photographers trying to replicate scenes from the anime, cosplayers wandering around,[22] and prayer plaques ridden with anime drawings and strange prayers like "Konata is my wife".[21][23]

    The locals were initially divided on the situation, with some suggesting that it is good for the shrine to have so many worshippers, and some being concerned about the town's security.[21] This was satirized in the twenty-first episode of the anime. Despite the negative reaction by some of the locals, the Washinomiya Shrine hosted a Lucky Star event in December 2007, featuring special guests including the author Kagami Yoshimizu, and the voice actors Hiromi Konno, Emiri Katō, Kaori Fukuhara, and Minoru Shiraishi. The event attracted 3500 fans.[24] Subsequently, the Hiiragi family have been registered as official residents of Washimiya because of the anime's wild popularity.
    I believe that Len has created a thread a bit back on the subject of a women "killing" the avatar of her online "husband". Ah, found it:

    So true...now if you'll excuse me I must be off myself. *Dash*...But jokes aside, even if the man manages to reach his goal of gaining signatures I highly doubt that it will become legal to "marry" 2D characters. C'mon, if its legalized than whats to stop people from marrying their own perfect creations? Oh, and theres also the problem of the character in question: Asahina Mikuru. SHE'S A MINOR!!!!! (Unless the guy is shooting for Adult version Mikuru...) Than again, Japan is OK with the 2D Loli content.

    LOL! I totally agree. I knew Japanese people were crazy, but I never thought it would go THIS far.

    I'm speechless *turns of the sexy wallpaper of byakuya right away*

    I really want to see how the divorce would play out if "they" did (and I use the word they very lightly), I am sure it would be absolutely hilarious. The reasons for it would be funny as well and the out come I am sure would be even funnier.
