Dakimakura Otaku!

In the past people have fallen in love with inanimate objects and some have even been married, both the Berlin wall and the Eiffel Tower have brides. But for the first time a man has officially married a pillow. Last Thursday, 4th March, a Korean man married his Dakimakura, a hugging pillow that has a printed picture of anime charterer on it, in this case it an imagine of Fate Testerosa from the series Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha.

Lee Jin-guy, 28, dressed his dakimakura, a hugging pillow, in a bridal gown and before guests was wed to her by a priest. It was extensively covered by local media at the time and was printed in the London Metro today.

A friend at the ceremony told London Metro: 'He is completely obsessed with this pillow and takes it everywhere,' They also added in their article; '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,'.

If you didn't believe in true love before then this might sway you, but then you might also think the world has gone totally mad, it depends how you look at it. I wish him great happiness : )
