Have you ever read a manga or watched an anime where the character was just too good that you wish he or she was human so you could date him or her? We were like this in the early years of high school, when my friends and I swore we’d marry our chosen ones from different anime’s showing on television at the time… It was a phase and we got over it when we discovered real people… Well, apparently we’re not alone, and for some people, the phase doesn’t end.

Taichi Takashita launched an online petition aiming for one million signatures for the Japanese government to pass a law allowing humans to marry two-dimensional characters. Within a week, he had gathered 1,226 signatures through the internet. In his petition he wrote:

He hopes to marry SOS Brigade Member Mikuru Asahina if the law was ever passed.

Would he be different from the Ohno Satoshi from Himitsu no Arashi-chan? Eh?!

 If a law like this was passed in your country, who would you want to marry?
