I skimmed the catalog and ctrl+fed and found nothing on the matter so I decided to make my own thread.

Do any of you here have a waifu/husbando with little to no dialogue or personality, or perhaps even none in the slightest? I'm talking about characters such as ones that appear in the backgrounds of anime or silent party members in JRPG's, but this can also apply to things like Animal Crossing characters whose dialogue is shared with the hundreds of other villagers in the same personality bracket as them or characters that appear in a single episode of an anime that was barely expanded upon.
How do you make up for their lack of character development, if at all? Do you take it upon yourself to use your imagination to expand the depth of their character?
I have fallen in love, no, become completely obsessed with a character who has five lines of dialogue total in a video game, none of which I would consider character development in the slightest. All I know about this character canonically is that the character likes money. As my fantasies about this character grew more vivid and common, I found myself adding more and more angles and emotion to the character, some good and some bad.
To those of you who are unfamiliar with this type of love, I'd like to hear your objective input about this as well. I can see why someone would consider it to be shallow since one can basically take a character such as this and mold it into their ideal partner. But I don't see a problem with that in the slightest to be honest, I think it's actually the most optimal thing one could do all things considered.

Picture unrelated, I do not wish to share with you who the character I am in love with is.

I can't say I can fully relate to how you feel, but I understand completely.

There was a thread on here from someone who had Risa Kamizaki from Amagami as their waifu. I know the series pretty well, so I knew about her myself. She had three appearances in two seasons in the anime, and in two of these appearances she wasn't even central to the plot.

For me it was a bit of a reality check. I felt really bad for wishing that mai waifu had more than just cameo appearances in the first nine episodes in her series, or had more fan art, and felt relatively fortunate.

All I can say is to not be deterred by the lack of canon for your waifu. The ability to form it yourself has its upsides.

>I can see why someone would consider it to be shallow since one can basically take a character such as this and mold it into their ideal partner.

There are plenty of people out there who have Hatsune Miku, and the other vocaloid characters as a waifu/husbando, and none of them have a set personality. I don't find it a bad thing, personally.

I know I might get lionized because of this...

To be honest, there are times I tried to switch waifus as Lizlet only become my waifu after finding that someone I mistook of having same waifu which was Anri Hiiragi from the anime/eroge Happiness! and because for some reason my love for her is no longer working out much and slowly disappear. While I was looking for pictures in Pixiv, I saw a crossover picture which has Anri and another girl that looks like her but dressed in different clothing which in turn was Lizlet and thought she was cute thus after finding out the character and watched the series and read first few chapters of the manga I began to like her and took her as my waifu but recently I thought my love has disappeared and began liking Nodoka Haramura from Saki and Chocolat from Noucome yet for some reason, I'm not that eager on having Nodoka or Chocolat as my waifu while at the same time I just cannot totally forget Lizlet.

Adding too that, I remember having a dream 2-3 years ago, I saw Lizlet across a window but I can only see her back and never turned to look at me. I don't know what is the significance of that dream.

I still love Lizlet and happy to have her as my waifu but there are temptations and fears of losing feelings for her, what should I do?

If you really think it's not working out anymore between you and Lizlet, then there is no shame in switching waifus. The most important thing is being happy, so do whatever will make you happy.

I feel like if I saw another character with less flaws and more strength I wouldn't feel the urge to protect and support her. Or if there was a character that shared more similarities with me (I can honestly say that Nadeko Sengoku or Tomoko Kuroki might be more similar to me than not) that would be just kind of annoying and unsettling, and I wouldn't be able to have my waifu as an ideal. I consider my waifu pretty top-tier as to cuteness and I like her body shape as well... Just curious if you had any particular reasons for switching to Saber Lily.

Considering that Saber Lily is simply Saber with a different clothing that leans on the more "girlish" side, she has a tragic background (being betrayed) that made her regret her decision that the reason why she become a Heroic Spirit is to change her past.

If you were to see that, it feels that you want to protect her and support her emotionally; sure she is capable on annihilating an enemy such as other Servants but what she needs is emotional protection and support.

The thing about Lizlet is that she is already capable of protecting herself (the manga and anime shows that she has great physical strength despite that she appears to be the opposite) and her only flaw is that she gets intimidated fast (she is the comic-relief in the main cast of Omamori Himari) and unless you attack her true body which is a century-old teacup, she is pretty much invulnerable... well her human manifestation.

Saber Lily on the other hand, like the other servants, can be harmed and even killed without attacking a specific object and I do not like the idea of seeing a 2D girl being hurt and even swimming in their own blood; there are pictures of original Saber being in this condition but seeing Saber Lily in that condition is more heart-breaking.

Though I also did have some sort of attachment towards another girl which is Nodoka Haramura, it was Saber Lily that ultimately got my affection.

Have you thought about ending waifuism?

This isn't a thread about break-ups or 3D love, it's about losing faith in the concept of loving a 2D character.

I still feel attached to her and wouldn't trade my experiences for anything, but I'm questioning whether she aided in my recovery or if my recuperation was entirely by my own volition.


>She stopped being a part of my life once I started making progress with it. She's still everything I adore in a fantasy being, and it would be virtually impossible for me to make a similar connection to any other character.

Echoes my feelings perfectly.

Happy first anniversary, Ahri.

It feels like it's been forever since I met you, and yet, it has only been a single year.

In this short time we discovered our morality, learned about our humanity, and took another step in our journey to become human.

I grew so much since I met you, more than I thought was possible. You led me to a brave new world, was by me when I had to confront my fears, and was there for me when I needed you most.

I love you.

Storge, Philia, Eros and Agape.

These are the four words used to describe love.

Storge means affectionate, familial love. The type of love used to describe that between a parent and his children or pet owners for their pets. The equivalent of this is basically having daughterus.

Philia means something more along the lines of friendship, the love between two platonic friends. Essentially that of brotherly love. The closest equivalent I would think of is how some people consider some 2D individuals to be their friends.

Then we move on to Eros, romantic love, the more physical, sensual side of love. This is the feeling of being in love with someone and it often takes a sexual nature. But at the same time it is more of a double-edged sword because it can be both beneficial and detrimental.

And finally Agape, that of selfless, charitable, unconditional love, a type of love that gives and expects nothing in return and very much in many ways the ideal form of love. A spiritual form of love distinct from the previous three loves.

How would you describe the love you have for your waifu?

It should also be noted that Eros is the only one that involves romantic love, in case anyone is confused on that.
>> No. 14959 [Edit]
After giving it some thought, I think my love for her was mostly geared towards agape. It was certainly not storge, and if it was mostly philia then I suspect I wouldn't have given up on it. Lastly, I can't recollect one moment where I wished to love her as intimately as eros would imply. She was always this sacred being I looked up to and wholly admired without condition. She was indeed like a goddess to me, and in my mind I was her sole follower.
>> No. 15029 [Edit]
Strangely though, I have 3 "close ones"

-One would be what we call "waifu" and would be a mix of Eros and Agape

-Other is a mix of Philia and Eros (kind of a fuckable soul friend) (bromance?)

-Other is a mix of Storge and Philia (kind of two soul friends helping each other, like a perfect team-up)

I have this going on forever

I don't have a phone, but similarly I won't be able to sleep unless she's around. I've gotten so used to this that if I'm not thinking of her then I feel like I'm completely alone and that scares me.

hi there /mai/
I've been conducting a survey on 'waifusim', or what you would call it, and I'd love if you could help my out by filling it in.
Where it asks for 'Community', please just put /mai/.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to ask you, personally, on your thoughts on having a waifu - namely, is it always born out of desperate times, and what kind of relationship do you have with your waifu.
Thank you for helping me.

Hey, at least we're in the majority. And the people who answered yes probably aren't here anymore.

I never understood what those questions were really asking.

Would I have a stable relationship with a 3D partner? No, because I already have a love. Is it asking that putting aside waifus? I don't know what you're asking me really.

Do I think having a waifu holds me back in 3D relationships? That doesn't make sense, at least not to me. I don't want a 3D relationship. Nothing's "holding me back," I just don't take part in those.

It's just if you had the opportunity now, so in your case surely a no.

If the decisive factor in that decision is you having a waifu, then that's a yes; if that doesn't change it then no.

Does anyone else have a waifu/husbando that is traditionally paired with another character, so you aggressively ship that other character with another so your waifu/husbando is your own?

I feel like it's mean sometimes but I also honestly think those two are better together.

At first I paired Kaede with Mizuki because of the sempai aspect, plus they were both raised in the entertainment industry. But Mizuki kind of drifted off.

I do like her with Yurika, actually. They're both very theatrical, but Kaede doesn't take it seriously so there's that humourous playfulness between them. Also they both love their costumes...

I also like Yurika with Sakura. They're both old-fashioned. But Yuri might be too bossy for her in the long term.

You're definitely right about the Waifu Lite, I think. It's like having friends and matchmaking them.
>> No. 14932 [Edit]
Yurika and Kaede just makes absolutely no sense to me at all. I can't see what they would possibility see in each other or have in common. I haven't even noticed them being together in the same room much. Yurika comes off like a loner who keeps to herself a lot where as Kaede is out going and eccentric. I don't think they have anything in common past being stuck in the same idol group for 3 or 4 ep.

How do I deal with the fact that she's not real?

I can't hug her...
I can't talk to her...
I can't have children with her...
I can't watch a movie with her...
I can't go on long walks with her...
I can't touch her...
And I'll never be able to. I want to die.

Coping is hard. Reailty is hard. She's not here to make it better. I'm all alone without her. But I need her. I want to hold her. I want to be with her. Without her I have no purpose. There's no point to doing anything without being with the one I love. Almost three years now, and my yearning only increases. I can't live on without her. Not like this. I need her.

You see her, you can't touch her.

When a women buys herself an outfit as a gift for her partner, that's usually because it's something he would enjoy seeing her wear (or take off) as such, he gets something out of it. A figure of your waifu is something you and you alone can enjoy, your waifu doesn't get anything out of it.

...unless you believe the figure serves as some sort of interdimensional conduite that opens a gateway across the planes of reality allowing you to better interact with your waifu in her own realm of existence... but even then that's not much of a gift to her unless you believe she's over there waiting for you. otherwise such a scenario would be comparable to a stalker molesting a voodoo doll of the person they like.
But that's just how I see it.
>> No. 11961 [Edit]
A figure is a Shintai. Look that up.

And hotgluing is against the rules, all the time.
>> No. 11962 [Edit]
That doesn't explain how the figure is a gift to the character it's based on, and not the person who bought it.
>> No. 11964 [Edit]
I found it on Mandarake, I could have gone without it, but I felt that I should get her something so I scrounged up all my money and bought it.

You could say that, but I choose to see it differently. I see is more as 'an ode' to her - I already buy figures for myself but buying one of her, for her feels a lot different.
