Japanese Man Marries Video Game Character

Stranger Than Fiction! Man Marries Video Game Character

This past Sunday, a man known as "Sal9000" and his fiancé Nene Anegasaki vowed to stay together until death, or a power outage, do them part. You see, Sal9000's new wife Nene happens to be a video game character in the addictive Nintendo DS game Love Plus. A priest, live audience, MC, and friends of the happy couple were also present at the event, and the bride's virtual maid of honor even gave a speech. A slideshow recounted how the couple met and teased Sal for being quite the player before he met Nene — he had lots of other video game girlfriends. The whole event was livecasted, and Boing Boing put together the video below so we could all witness this unique wedding.

This story might be the first time I've heard of someone marrying an anime character, but I have read about those who "marry" other inanimate objects. The term "objectum sexuals" describes people who feel attraction, arousal, love, and commitment for objects. One woman even held a ceremony in Paris and married the Eiffel Tower. Talk about nontraditional weddings.

This is nearly as weird as the guy who married his anime body pillow. At least THAT guy can hug the pillow. Sad.

I havent read the comments so sorry if this has been said but how the HELL is it legal for someone to marry an inatimate object that cant even sign the marriage license, but one human being cannot marry another simply because of their gender/sexual orientation? I heard something about first-cousins getting married in the states too. So they would rather have incest and these "object" fake, JOKES of marriages, than to have happy, homosexual couples marry? Wow

I have no words. This is just so sad. It's like these people live in some sort of alternate dimension where they actually think all these things are REAL. I've met creepy dudes like this one. It's best to just keep your distance.

Gay marriage is still illegal in many countries around the world. But this is OK? Cripes.
