Hatsune Miku's “wedding” with Akihiko

Did you know that Hatsune Miku already got married? Many anime and game fans would like their favorite characters to be real. Maybe to be friends, to learn something or even to have a relationship.

It is not very uncommon to hear people who say they are in love with fictional characters. In a way, is this just people's dreams, or is it not? You may have even heard the term waifu.

Waifu it is a very popular term used among the Otaku that literally means wife. and this guy we're going to talk about in the article really took that term seriously.

Hatsune miku's "wedding" with akihiko

The dream of marrying Hatsune Miku

Akihiko Kondo, a 35-year-old Japanese man, had his dream wedding. On November 4, 2018 he married Hatsune Miku, the most famous holographic singer from Japan and the World.

There was even a ceremony in Tokyo attended by 40 guests. Among these guests was even a member of the Japanese Parliament.

After many frustrations with real women, he decided to fall in love with someone who doesn't let him down. Akihiko said she was in love with the character for over 10 years, even claiming to have never betrayed her.

But even with such love, the family never approved of such a romance. So much so that on the day of the ceremony, Akihiko's mother was not present, and no other relative.

Akihiko says that her mother said that such a ceremony was not something to celebrate. Still, he continued with his idea. After many preparations a ceremony was held for the wedding.

The reality of marriage with miku

About 2 million yen was spent, almost 70 thousand reais, for the wedding to be held in Tokyo, in a rented location. The "bride" appeared at the ceremony in the form of a plush toy, with a wedding ring on her arm.

The company Gatebox who produces Miku's holograms, issued a symbolic marriage certificate. In that certificate the company said that its union exceeded dimensions. For in fact the marriage was not recognized by the state.

The interesting thing is that the company has already issued about 3700 marriage certificates like this to other “couples”. Akihiko's parents hope that he will someday have a royal wedding with a real person.

But in an interview Akihiko stated that it will never happen. He lives with a hologram from Hatsune Miku, and sleeps every night with her plush. He further said: "I believe that we must consider all types of love and all types of happiness."

I wonder how many people must have the same character's marriage certificate. The miku must be married to several guys, and probably the Gatebox company should be rich with just these certificates and selling their products.

What did you think of that? Would you marry an anime or game character?

  1. Se ta dificil para um japones, imagina para um ocidental que gosta de orientais.

    There's an episode of gravity falls that addresses this waifu thing, one of the main characters wants to date but doesn't know how to talk to women, so he buys a visual novel game to learn. Sorry for typos, keyboard is a little bad.
