Japanese man petitions to marry comic book character

A Japanese man has enlisted hundreds of people in a campaign to allow marriages between humans and cartoon characters, saying he feels more at ease in the "two-dimensional world".

Comic books are immensely popular in Japan, with some fictional characters becoming celebrities or even sex symbols.

Marriage is meanwhile on the decline as many young Japanese find it difficult to find life partners.

Taichi Takashita launched an online petition aiming for 1 million signatures to present to the government to establish a law on marriages with cartoon characters.

Within a week he has gathered more than 1,000 signatures through the internet.

"I am no longer interested in three dimensions. I would even like to become a resident of the two-dimensional world," he wrote.

"However, that seems impossible with present-day technology. Therefore, at the very least, would it be possible to legally authorise marriage with a two-dimensional character?"


There is no D: big enough for this. I guess weeaboos are breathing a sigh of relief as the original products manage to upstage them once again.

    If I married a cartoon princess, would that push me into a higher tax bracket?

    See, this would bug me so much more if I hadn't just watched that Real Doll documentary.

    Now I just can't figure out which is worse.

    Edit: Also, legally, would this mean you'd be married to every iteration of that character, or just one specific drawing? Mind-boggling idiocy aside, this raises a whole lot of questions.

    Who would get to decide who gets to marry the character?

    I doubt there's just one person that would marry Ryoko if they could.

    (There are probably more that would marry Sasami.)

    Statutory rape laws concern classes of persons that can not be said to consent to the act of sex.

    The real question is how do you serve a cartoon with a marriage contract?

    The law should state that they need to create their own character to marry. Oh god and they should make a database with the jpgs of all of the submitted wedding portraits. Oh my god it would be so fucking grand.

    The real ramifications of this law being passed, as it inevitably will, is that I will be able to marry the sarah palin article in my last issue of newsweek.

    We're approaching the sexual preferences singularity.

    It's like the technological singularity except it ends with people trying to have sex with abstract mathematical concepts.
