Some of us Thought it might be nice to have a thread to kind of list off who is who's waifu.
The concept is simple really, just say in this thread who your waifu is.

Just for starters, this is Minagi Tohno

Are there any misunderstandings, misinterpretations, fallacies or rude thoughts people have about your waifu that make you angry?

A lot of people seem to think Konata is stupid. A lot of the shitty demotivational poster image macros people make of her either make light on her perceived "super-nerdiness" or make insinuations that she is stupid or reckless. 

I feel this is far from the truth. Konata does hold loosely the "boke" role to Kagami's tsukkomi, however, this role doesn't necessarily mean she is "stupid," it's just a comic role she adopts in the spirit of prescribed Japanese comedy. Konata knows how to budget her time in a way that she can do things she loves while also getting what she wants out of schooling.

Konata enjoys life and has a lot of fun. She is a happy person. She does however lack the drive to do homework. She's not dumb. She's just utilising Kagami as a friend, Kagami could easily just flat out reject her.

Also seeing people say things like "oh I never noticed her eyes are green" pisses me off.

I don't get these problems with erotic works of one's waifu... Of course you have imagined how she'd act in bed, right? Now, it might be enough to only imagine it, but then again, if your imagination is so strong, why's your waifu someone else's creation to begin with? Even without self-inserting, seeing the lewd faces she makes and her beautiful naked body is refreshing.

The only and very slight irritation I suffer is when clearly gifted artists draw her with no concern to her character. To them she's just the girl with the horn and titties. The best art (n/sfw) is drawn by people who specialize in lewd pieces. This is because there is little incentive to "draw all 2hus" or whatever else that disregards her character when all they want is good porn. They could pick any girl, and those who pick Yuugi usually have something they like about her as a character (because, you know, you can draw massive tits on pretty much anyone).

I have constantly had to deal with pretty much everyone insisting that she is evil, that she is nothing but a murderer, that she is irredeemable, that she doesn't deserve to be saved, et cetera. It's a completely one-dimensional perspective of her, and reeks of ignorance. Most of the people who say that sort of stuff haven't even seen the parts of the source material that she's actually present in.
I don't really bother with those people anymore, though. It's not worth my time. I know that I can't really change their minds about her, just like they can't change my mind about her.

Something else that really annoys me is artists who draw her with the wrong eye color. I've seen her drawn with black, grey, green, and even blue eyes. I have nothing against those colors, but it's just not Chara's eyes. Canonically, they're always either a very dark reddish brown, like her hair, or bright red. Most artists draw them red.
Wrong hair color annoys me even more. Her hair is canonically auburn. Dark, and somewhere between red and brown. Plenty of artists draw it plain brown, which is acceptable. Some others draw it red, which I am also okay with. I've seen a few artists draw it black, though, which is very wrong.
Worst of all, however, are the artists who draw it orange, and there are many of them. I don't understand why they do it! It's not orange! Stop this madness immediately!

I have the reverse of your Konata problem.
Eerie is a retard. I like him that way, just the way he is. He's a "primal" man, the creators used that word themselves to describe him.
Yet, a lot of fanart paints him as this verbose, down to earth guy giving life advice, wearing fucking formal business suits, dramatically buttoning the sleeve cuffs looking all sophisticated.
He's also only 16 years old, and a lot of this type of psychiatrist looking Eerie fanart increases his height a lot and gives him more matured features, raising his age by anywhere between 10 and 30 years.
It's the total opposite of Eerie. I don't even know how they think of this stuff. It would be understandable if it was a one off thing, but this is like 15% of the fanart does this! It's not done in the name of irony, this is how they actually see him, somehow.

Even worse than that interpretation is people who project their disgusting hyper homosexual and transgender afflictions onto him, or are, again, just plain ignorant of Eerie's fundamentals as a character.
While Eerie's physically 16, he's intellectually somewhere around 8~. Extremely immature. And I think these people, not seeing that, are instead equating his chipper body language to flaming faggotry.
He's not a faggot! He's an energetic, happy kid with no discipline or social awareness. He beats the shit out of people and excels in sports much more often than he does flamboyant spontaneous dances, anyway.

Eerie has crossdressed twice in the show. Once was to humor his roommate's game and make her happy (he was not on board with this at all and initially threw her costumes away in retaliation), and the second time was part of a scheme to force his way into a fortress with heavy defenses that required a disguise.
These both had clear motivations. It's not something he just does for fucking fun or because he's mentally ill.
Plus--and I've said this before already in another post--Koreans, all Asians, really, find crossdressing absolutely hilarious. Trannies are modern clowns there: there are comedy shows done on stage where the one and only joke is "the man is dressed like a woman". Moreover, the more masculine the man crossdressing is, the funnier it is, so in a

Are there any vloggers that discuss waifuism seriously? Why's it always text? I look around YouTube and see nothing but tumblr faggots who either aren't waifuists themselves and are just speculating and having a laugh, or have 6 "waifus" they collect and dump later like trading cards, or are loyal to one waifu but have a very shallow relationship with them and a 3D succubus as their main.
Aren't there any genuine waifuists who document their relationships at length via video? I'd really like to watch.

I started a channel myself because I wanted to be a pioneer and set an example for the tumblr faggots, but my relationship is much too bumpy, I typically have nothing positive to say, it's embarrassing, I cancelled it very quickly.

I like that he very quickly saw the parallels it has to religion. I don't think enough people make that connection, even here.

Other than that, his video is basically one giant assumption that we make ourselves unhappy by the self-imposed restrictions and that we are not doing it out of our own will but to appease the waifu community zeitgeist.
He's an idiot. He debunked his own point with that quote about some feeling empowered by rejecting 3D for your waifu.

However, while the restrictions are great for some, they don't apply to everyone. And those theses he kept bringing up aren't rule books like he was assuming. More assumptions... They even say so in the foreword.

There is a zeitgeist, though, to be sure. As he said, people will shit on you for not loving a certain way. But he's implying that we don't have the willpower to ignore it and do what we want. Who gives a fuck if someone mocks you? He's this big 4chan guy who you'd think would have thick skin, and yet he made a 15 minute video saying "stop cyber-bullying people and bossing people around".

Stopped watching when he defended normies and defined them as "not socially inept".

That video is diluted cancer and everything about it production-wise is grating to be subjected to. Content-wise is mostly garbage, but the poster above me already covered that.

I recommend anyone to avoid this video. If you have a waifu it will annoy you for his point of view; if you don't, for the way it's made.

The concept of "waifus" has actually been referenced in a couple different anime about otaku. However, they always use the term "yome", rather than "waifu", so I'd wager that "waifu" is Western in origin, even more, they will NEVER use "yome" for a western made character.

The waifu meme is derived from a joke in Azumanga Daioh, but makes no mention of the term coming from the Japanese anime/otaku community, in-universe he was talking about his "real" wife, but it was a play on the english classes they take.

The best we can hope is for someone in the Japanese Otaku community to confirm or unconfirm this.

Have you ever gotten into a verbal fight, or even cut ties with someone very close to you due to them insulting your waifu?

Tell your story here.

For those of you who aren't public enough about your waifu for anyone to insult you about it in the first place, why not describe to us theoretically how much offense towards her you would endure before doing something about it. Would there be a clear line drawn? What would that line be? A single ad-hominem? Years of build up?

If you just plain don't care if someone shits on your waifu, you can tell us your philosophy about that, too.

I guess it is finished, but the questions are interesting and I liked reading the replies. Here are mine.

>Who is your waifu?
There is not much source material unfortunately. It would be difficult for others to know her by her official account. Her character is explored mainly trough fan art.

>When was her last official appearance?
Recently. Not like 10 years ago. Her better appearance is the unofficial appearance made by fans.

>How old were you when you fell for your waifu?
30+

>How long have you loved her for?
About a year.

I'd ask them for a drawing, signature's of my merch. Maybe ask their favourite of the drawings they've made of her and lastly, if there's anything they know of the character that has never been published or discussed before.

I don't think these would even be remotely hard things to get in real life.
But it would require they attend a public event and that I was able to afford to attend as well.
Which is what makes it impossible to imagine.

OK, I'm going to assume this is an ideal scenario where I have paid them off or won a contest or something where they have to do whatever I want and can't flee from my autistic terror.

Firstly, I would do the face to the ground, down on all fours bow and thank them for giving me the gift of life.

Then, the rapid fire of questions would begin.

What is Eerie's birth date?
What do Eerie's parents look like? What circumstances led to them abandoning him?
What is Eerie's IQ? Is he only displayed as mentally retarded for the stylistic purposes of the show? His vocal chords allow for some speech--is he educated to the point of being capable of forming entire articulate sentences off-screen?
If so, where was this speech taught to him, and can he read as well?
What sort of things would Eerie look for in a woman, if anything at all? He seems like he'd rather be in a relationship with himself, is that your intent?
What were your multimedia influences when designing him and the world around him?
What does Eerie smell like?
What is his all-time favorite dish?
What is the exact extent of Eerie's ability? Is he a magical being? Does he follow the traditional werewolf mythos with the silver bullets and all? Can you give me a summary of his strength, i.e. estimated PSI of his blows and bites, maximum speed of a sprint, his flesh's capacity for damage-like if I shot him with normal buckshot, would his skin deflect the pellets, or would he die and resurrect the next day with his werewolf immortality? Et cetera.

I'd probably thank him to extremely unnecessary amounts and tell him how grateful I am to have met Ion through his games.

As for questions, I'd probably ask him about if he had any other plans for the EXA_PICO universe after he's done with Augmented Reality Girls Trinary.

Көзімнің қарасы. It's generally translated as 'Apple of my Eye' as that's the English way of saying it, but it actually translates as the 'pupil of my eye' which is how that is said in Kazakh. It's a poem by Abai though originally. Just edited in a different version and reworded some things that weren't conveying what I wanted them to last time.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0s03bLCkMTw

I came across the poem in my textbook and thought it was very pretty even though I can't really understand how it all works exactly. I don't get why it's so hard to find a nice version in the traditional style though, it's a very popular folk song. This is getting there compared to the link I had before but it's still a long way away from being truly authentic. Anyway, the words are really pretty, and I like to imagine my waifu singing this song to me. I find Kazakh to be a quite beautiful sounding language despite it being quite harsh at times. I pick up some words and there are a few bits that make sense but it's still miles above my level, I'll get there one day though, she encourages me and gives me motivation when I can't get it from myself.

(Қазақша)

Көзімнің қарасы, көңлімнің санасы
Бітпейді іштегі, ғашықтың жарасы
Бітпейді іштегі, ғашықтың жарасы.

Қазақтың данасы, жасы үлкен ағасы
Бар дейді, сендей бір адамның баласы
Бар дейді, сендей бір адамның баласы

I've been listening to the Yellow Rose of Texas a lot recently. A lot of songs in the folk genre remind me of her because she loves songs and singing, to the point where I've actually gone and found folk songs from her people and listened to them to get an idea of what she would sing to herself, but I think she'd also enjoy hearing some from my own English-speaking background. Here are a couple of versions that I like, the first is one from the post civil-war era, mixing the original lyrics and the marching song as the rewrite at that time did. Second one was at the top of the charts in 1955 with some changes to the original lyrics again. My waifu is no Texan but it reminds me of her regardless, she is a rose of colour so we're halfway there with some versions.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HgMXpYYUjo - This video does have a slideshow of old photographs, but it's a song so just play it in the background.

This is one of my favourite versions but I can't find it on a regular video, and the autogenerated channels are blocked in lots of places. I tried using a youtube mirror but it wasn't working for some reason. I'd post an mp3 of it, but the file is just over 7mb so I can't.

It's a really pretty song though, so I'll post it anyway.

How are you guys dealing with the fact that the concept of waifus is far beyond being mainstream by now? Or more, people know it and simply throw the word without really knowing there are people who take it somewhat serious. I frequent a few other imageboards and also are deep in "gaming culture", so I also frquent Steam and some other places. Heck, even in facebook I see this crap. And everywhere people are joking around, casually throwing the term "waifu" around and calling each and every female character, no matter if there is a personal interest in them or not, a "Waifu". Not only that, but by now its clear as day that devs put a lot of effort in appealing to this trend. Games get more and more "waifubaits" (all female casts, female mascots, female maincharacters) and its starting to be some kind of a trend to jump on the waifu bandwagon.

Due to all this I have a hard time taking the actual waifu "scene" serious despite being part of it myself for years. Do you guys just ignore all this? Do you partake in discussions and trying to make clear that this joke is getting tiring? Personally I try to ignore it, but its getting kinda hard not to lash out.

And as a sidenote, Im starting to distance myself from waifuism and Im not nearly as deep in it as I was a while ago (guess Im starting to get too old for this, I dont know) but I still feel kinda offended because I used to be quite deep in it, still have a waifu and also because I know there are tons of nice people who love their waifu and might get thrown together with people who just think of waifus as a meme.

I might stop using the word waifu altogether and just call him my lover or my muse or something.
I'm not mad about it anymore. As a faggot, I have it worse than others. The liberal use of the word husbando is much worse in my opinion. You'll notice that the ironic otakus refer to characters that are well designed and well written as waifus. They don't have any feelings for them like we do, but they are at least respectful towards the character. I've never seen them use the term to describe their sexual desires. Likely because the normie otakus would never allow themselves to masturbate to cartoons, the thought probably doesn't even occur to them.
Which is all gay fake otakus do. Husbando means "character I masturbate to more than once" to them, and they are very upfront and shameless about it, as gays typically are about their sexuality. The difference between any given waifu thread versus a husbando thread on the shit *chans is immediately obvious: one is pornographic and the other is not.
And as shit as the other *chans are, I have to say that I've seen quite a few waifu threads on /v/ where people really are appearing to stay loyal to a single character in there, versus the husbando faggots that seriously take the time to photoshop twelve characters into an image together and refer to these twelve characters collectively as their husbando. Next week, they'll switch some of the characters out for new ones. Like trading cards.

To summarize: guys that misuse "waifu" are innocent idiots that appreciate characters for who they are on some level, guys that misuse "husbando" are addicted to porn.

This is all to say that I've already been driven to giving up a 2D love related term once because of pieces of shit, and I can do it again without much difficulty. I never call Eerie my husbando on purpose because of those people. People have acted confused by how I refer to Eerie as my waifu instead of my husbando, now you know. Sometimes I take it a step further and call him by female pronouns just for added effect, even though I never, ever think of him as anything other than masculine. I just want to separate myself from husbando faggots as much as possible.

Please don't misinterpret this as me having any problems with the gays he

I've definitely seen husbando been more corrupted than waifu, so how about just accepting defeat and using a different term? Some examples:
> Eerie is my spousu.
> Eerie is my consortu.
> Eerie is my groomuu.
Since it seems you're a koreaboo, you can also just use its default word for it:
> Eerie is my nampyeon.

Hahaha, nampyeon, I actually like that a lot, I think I might do that. Thanks.
And as far as worship of cultures goes, I actually hate Japan and Korea both, Korea more than Japan. They're robot ant people that eat each other alive, they make American chads seem like angels. I'm doing a lot of things I don't like just for Eerie.

What are you experiences with getting things related to your waifu custom made?

Currently I'm in the process of finally getting a daki made after managing to find a decent artist with reasonable prices. Final product should be done in about a week.

If anyone's interested/curious the artist can be found here http://53c.deviantart.com/

Two years back I tried to get a daki commission with this artist who's skill and style seemed like it would be ideal, but even after accepting the commission decided to stop responding and ignore my messages (as mentioned here >>19050 ). Well a couple months ago I noticed them post some new work and thought "why not?" and messaged them again. As before they agreed to do it, but then started taking longer and longer to respond to each message. So I addressed the issue, and they claimed they were sick, in and out of hospitals and so on for the past two years. People I've talked to say artists do this sort of thing all the time when they don't want to be honest and just admit they're feeling lazy and don't want to work on something. If their story is true though, it makes me feel sorry for them.
Anyways, we worked things out and while it took some time this was the end result. I also made a bit of a mistake before thinking it was $90 for the whole thing, it was per side actually. Guy did give me a discount for the whole two year wait thing though and just charged me $140.

I've thought about it, and considering my finances and generally how my lady would make eyebrows raise and judgments form from artists who don't get it; it's not something that I think I'm capable of doing with my present level of anxiety. I've strongly considered getting a 'half-daki' though, so commissioning a torso+head of her, and getting it printed onto a regular sized pillow. This also has the advantage of me not needing to go out and buy a body pillow, and being easier to hide from the judgmental eyes of family that I live with.

Has your waifu got different designs to her, or different outfits?

With Kagura, there's some art of her, which pre-dates the Azumanga Daioh anime, where she has purple hair. It's a little out there, though a few of the other characters were drawn with unnatural hair colours as well, so it sort of fit. Personally I'm glad they went with natural hair colours in the end, as the characters are meant to be at least somewhat believable (I say somewhat because Chiyo-Father), so the natural colours help with that, I feel.

In some official art, and The Very Short Movie, her hair is less round and more spiky and stylised. It looks cool, but I prefer the slightly less crazy, rounder style.

In terms of outfits, I'm a big fan of her cheerleader outfit, even though there's next to no fan art of her wearing it...

What's your opinion on your waifu's different looks?

Eerie's a reverse werewolf, meaning he's a wolf all of the time unless he's exposed to a full moon, which turns him human for the duration.
When human, he's basically the antithesis of his wolf-self, haha. I think it's really brilliant; he's like a screaming retarded caveman that crushes rocks with his bare skull for entertainment by day, and a mild mannered French royalty inspired k-pop idol who charms the ladies with his gift of conjuring roses from thin air at night.

I just commissioned this drawing of his human form greeting my self-insert fan character with a rose. It was $100, but I liked the artist and her work enough to tip $20.

Eerie has many since it's so much cheaper to do 3D than 2D animation. I feel very lucky that he's 3D for this reason, and because 3D models are always consistent, unlike anime characters that have the artists change or budget issues mid-series and such. Eerie looks perfect always!

There's Ghostbusters Eerie, Super Sentai Eerie, Dracula Eerie with blood red eyes, wet suit Eerie surfing on a shark...

One costume I have a very big problem with, so much so that I couldn't include it in this collage because I can't even bear to look at it is his Halloween tuxedo. It was worn during his lowest moment, I uh, don't want to talk about it. It's a shame, because it's his most handsome outfit and it had the most work put into it, yet it was used in such a horrible episode that I can't appreciate it.

I used to have a problem with his cross-dressing, but I'm starting to understand that "LGBT" is synonymous with "clown" in most of the East, at least as far as I can tell. The manlier the person wearing women's clothing is, the harder the audience laughs. So, in a way, it's a compliment to Eerie that they dress him up like this for a joke.

Hey, that's a picture I made a few years ago.

Oh.

In any case, that's mostly the anime changing the designs to keep up with Ume-sensei's evolving art style. For example, season 2 designs look quite close to how Ume-sensei's style looked like back in 2008. I think S4 looks odd, but some people like it because it has brown lines like Madoka. I don't think it really matches the style of the manga though.
