Korean Man Marries Life-Sized Body Pillow

10 03 2010

From Metro.co.uk:

Lee Jin-gyu fell for his ‘dakimakura’ – a kind of large, huggable pillow from Japan, often with a picture of a popular anime character printed on it. In Lee’s case, his beloved pillow has an image of Fate Testarossa, from the ‘magical girl’ anime series Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.

Now the 28-year-old otaku (a Japanese term that roughly translates to somewhere between ‘obsessive’ and ‘nerd’) has wed the pillow in a special ceremony, after fitting it out with a wedding dress for the service in front of a local priest.

‘He is completely obsessed with this pillow and takes it everywhere,’ said one friend, ‘They go out to the park or the funfair where it will go on all the rides with him. Then when he goes out to eat he takes it with him and it gets its own seat and its own meal,’ they added.

It’ll be a rough honeymoon for sure, hows he gonna split those seams with his dick?! Is he going to cut a hole with a knife? Wouldn’t that be domestic violence? Does he have to clean up after he finishes, or will the stuffing take care of that?

…These are the questions that keep me up at night….ok not really, but still!

but then again, I guess it’s a step up from a video game character. At least that pillow he can dry hump.

I have to admit, I thought I’d never see the day a Otaku would wed a body pillow. That day has come (no pun intended). If he gets a Anime Magical Girl bedsheet would that consitute adultry on his part? Oo;

The thought of a marrage between a man and a favorite character from an anime series seems wierd but aceptable; but if you look at it from an objective point of view, you would see a man devoting his life to an inatament object being completely inadequete!
