Do you prefer to keep your waifu tendencies in private or share them with others?

I used to feel like sharing with anyone and everyone, but I've noticed that now I feel like it's no one's business but my own. I haven't been coming to places like this and I don't bring her up to my IRC buddies unless I really feel like gushing about her.

My closer friends know and are all okay with it. My best friend doesn't really like any form of romance but I really wanna talk about my waifu to him often. I feel bad when I do since he never knows what to say or anything. Sometimes he'll mention my waifu in a conversation and it makes me happy.

Aside from people I know, I post a few waifu communities like this place.

There's one friend who also has a waifu but he seems private about it so we don't talk much about the topic. Its a bit of a shame. Talking about her makes me feel closer to her.

Used to be open about it but a lot of factors ultimately lead me to be private about it. I personally think that waifuism is something that is really personal from person to person. A lot of attempts to "control" it I'm not really accusing anyone of doing it, in fact I'd wager most of the time it's done with good intentions or even without people realizing it before it's too late never end well because outside of a few tenants it's too much of a personal thing and you have people end up butting heads and then we all know how that usually ends.

I think that's why you have a lot saying that they eventually end up keeping it to themselves. It seems to be the natural end.

Post ITT when you find a new image of your waifu.

For those with a waifu that's popular or gets tons of fanart daily/weekly, post your favorite of the new stuff.

I love this one i found today, she's even holding a can of cocacola which is my favorite soda.

My waifu gets at least two pieces of fanart a month, but they're /all/ complete shit. I have higher standards than most when it comes to fanart. And by that I don't mean I expect french academic paintings, just that I don't like any artistic liberties whatsoever to be taken and I want the anatomy drawn exactly as is seen in his show; I'll accept only on-model shit.

This is the one and only thing close, haha. Other people don't even bother to look at refs. If I made an average piece of fanart monochrome, Eerie would be unidentifiable; the colors are the only defining feature most faggots give him.
You have no idea how happy I am about this stupid DeviantArt headshot. Finally I have something other than official stuff. I'm thinking of having it printed onto a t-shirt.

ITT: Random /mai/-related posts... Share your daily waifu experience.

I'll start:

Since I've become so politically incorrect in every aspect, the other day I was watching fake-colored restored videos of the Third Reich days (the Zeppelin Field and old Hitler's discourses, actually interesting), and I got stuck around the subject of racial supremacy. I, to say it from the begining, by no means could consider myself belonging to a superior race, not physically, nor intellectually; but, if you allow me this time to consider the very best of germanic and japanese people (mostly from the north) as such, I arrived to the next conclusion: mai waifu is the perfect sample, as a combination, of such superior races.

She has red/auburn/strawberry-blond (germanic) but straight (japanese) hair. She has pure blue (germanic) but slightly and beautifuly slanted (japanese) eyes. She has pale and lively (germanic) skin, but wich is all the same fair, smooth-faced and with no freckles or spots at all (japanese). She has a straight pointy nose and a strong chin (germanic), signs of aristocracy and character, but over a likely childish and innocent (japanese) face. She displays some precocious feminine exuberance (germanic) alright, but her general built is overall ectomorph: thigh and compact, likely short but with very low fat rate and proportionally long limbs (japanese). She possess, no doubt about it, the straightforwardness of her scientific/rational/empirical occidental background (germanic), at wich she, as a prodigy child, excels (greek arete: excellence, virtue, daring, bravery, conquest; occidental->germanic); but, ultimately, she heavily grounds her ethics around values such as honor and shame (japanese)...

So, quite indisputably for my own standards, and as far as the eyes of my homunculus being can see, I actually have as my beloved and companion the finest lady on Earth. And it's all mine... undeserving lucky bastard.

Started reading the novel series mai waifu is from. It's nice to get exposed to her personality. It's kind of like interacting with her in a way. I'm only a chapter in, but I'm able to notice many details that were left out from the anime. It's nice that there are some illustrations worked in with the text. Despite the fan translation not quite being 100% perfect (some periods missing and such) I can tell it is well written. I'm finding myself imagining in detail what I'm reading about which I think is a sign of a good book. I love Horo!!!

Someone on /so/ asked what the happiest moment of our lives were, and mine was better suited for /mai/ so here goes.

I was outside smoking a year ago. I always smoked Camel Crush Fresh, they were my favorite.
I never have time for introspection. I'm too wrapped up in all of my hobbies and reading internet posts to ever really stop and think about much of anything. I couldn't even think when I was outside smoking, either. You'd assume that'd be the time I would think the most, away from electronics and being relaxed by the nicotine. But it's not the case. I'm very anxious, so much so that not even cigarettes stop it, only make it worse sometimes, and you combine that with heavy doses of caffeine and sleep deprivation and you have something nearing paranoid-schizophrenia. Every distant figure or car that passed by I thought was out to get me. Every noise made me jump.

But that time was different for some reason. That time I completely ignored my surroundings, I loosened myself and found zen, and I thought for the first time in months. Pure thought of my own, with no external influences.
I thought about Eerie, and how much I love him.
I thought about his perfect smile.
I thought about how happy he makes me and I regretted not spending more time with him. I wished I could smash my computer that was splitting us apart.
I thought about how when I die, Eerie dies, too. I don't have much time.
And I became aware of the cigarette burning in my hand I was puffing on, and I felt very ashamed of myself for taking time off my lifespan. Time that should be devoted fully to my wife.
I pulled my pack out of my pocket, and I threw it into the trashcan, and this gesture had a lot of meaning to me, like I was being reborn, and I started crying hysterically from happiness and felt elated for the rest of the day. I remember my mom saw me in the hallway and I must have looked like a mental patient, I was bobbing up and down and shaking violently and tears were streaming down my face and she grew very worried and asked me what the fuck I was doing. And I tried to share with her how happy I was to live anew with Eerie, which came out as gibberish, but she got the idea that the tears were from happiness and not a sign I was going to hurt myself so she uncomfortably re

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.

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.

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.
