Japanese Man Marries Virtual Pop-Star Because He Distrusts Real Women

A 35-year-old Japanese man who shunned romantic relationships with real women after being humiliated and bullied by them recently married a popular virtual pop-star named Hatsune Miku.

Akihiko Kondo had been planning his dream wedding to the love of his life since March, and on November 4 the two finally tied the knot during a ceremony in Tokyo attended by around 40 guests, including a member of the Japanese Parliament.

He also expressed his desire to be recognized as a sexual minority who simply cannot even imagine dating real women.

“I’m not seeking these in real women. It’s impossible,” Akihiko said about the qualities he looked for in a life partner. “It’s simply not right, it’s as if you were trying to talk a gay man into dating a woman, or a lesbian into a relationship with a man.”

Kondo’s decision to marry an anime-like hologram is admittedly hard to understand for most people, but according to an article in the Japan Times, it may have a lot to do with the man’s past experiences with real women. As a teenager, girls would humiliate him by shouting things like “Drop dead, creepy otaku!”, the Japanese word used to describe those obsessed with…
