How do you guys feel about having a unpopular character or a character from a unpopular series as a waifu or husbando?

How about a character that is for all intends and purpose a main character but was given the shaft by it's series? That you are able to tell that the people in charge of it's series had a beef with the character and went out of their way to mess up with it. How about when that happens while at the same time a character you despise is given the total opposite treatment than the one you like?

How do you deal and feel about the lack of merchandise or lack of fanart? Or maybe if you are lucky your waifu or husbando has those too but suffered from the situation I mentioned up there?

I'm sure more than one person would prefer to have a popular character from a pretty show with tons of fanart, and merch coming out, sometimes even with the show having ended a long time ago. I know one can't help liking who what they like, that's true, but had you the chance would you prefer someone like that?

I know this topic may sound selfish, and maybe even petty, but I wanted to gather some thought regarding this topic. It's something I don't see spoken about in the open much.

My husbando is unpopular officially but he's reasonably popular amongst the fans. He's not everybody's favourite character and if they did a vote he probably wouldn't make it high up the ranks (there's a lot of characters and he's only a support character in one part so it's fair) but I've never seen anybody say anything negative about him. Which makes up for it in a way.

By "unpopular officially" I mean that he's gotten left out of a couple of things where a lot of people felt he should have been included, but the fact that a lot of fans were disappointed even if they weren't a huge fan of his really warmed me up and made the whole thing sting much less. It's nice to know he's loved by others besides me.

As for merch he doesn't have any that's decent but he should be getting something in a couple of years or later. Not something I'm usually interested in but he'll be the exception.

>How about when that happens while at the same time a character you despise is given the total opposite treatment than the one you like?
Not anywhere near to what you described in your post but, as silly as it sounds, there is one character who I did feel took his place in the piece he was left out of but time has dealt with that I suppose. Not much use in blaming anybody even if I am disappointed.

>How do you guys feel about having a unpopular character or a character from a unpopular series as a waifu or husbando?
I used to be disappointed there's virtually no canon about her. Nowadays I just don't care anymore, if anything it's better that things stay that way so I don't have to revise anything to align my interpretation of her with the canon.

>How about [...] when that happens while at the same time a character you despise is given the total opposite treatment than the one you like?
That's too specific. I did have trouble with a character I didn't like being overly popular in detriment of my waifu, but not only the people I met who had that other one as their waifu were complete bros I figured my waifu and her probably get along really well and such toxic behaviour could only do harm.

>How do you deal and feel about the lack of merchandise or lack of fanart?
Sometimes it bothers me how 80% of the new art I get is plain shit or has always other characters along, but most of the time I only look at my 40 or so favourite pictures anyway. And I couldn't care less for merch.

>I'm sure [...] . I know one can't help liking who what they like, that's true, but had you the chance would you prefer someone like that?
You said yourself such chance doesn't exist, so what's the point?

I think it makes me appreciate what i get a lot more. Whenever i find new art of my waifu i feel like i've been hit by lightning, it's exciting, considering she is from a very unpopular show and nobody but me really cares about her that much, finding any new content of her is like striking gold, however that doesn't make me feel any better about the lack of any sort of following.

I feel like she deserves more, there is nothing for her. there is only one piece of merchandise for her and its fan made in very limited numbers. Weekly, I Google search her name in multiple languages and multiple search engines to see if there is any conversation of her, usually there is nothing. It's been two years since her show ended and the amount of fan art she has is a joke compared to anime that is even considered Obscure.

I look at other waifus and i wonder how it must feel to have such massive numbers of fans, art, merchandise ect, i couldn't imagine, thousands of people buying figures, dakis, and posters of her, or artists drawing her not for money but because the LIKE her. Just the though of others being interested in her is otherworldly. It's unfortunate.

I had some free time in the evening so I decided to look through large pages looking for some good, untagged pics of my husbando. This pic I both love because it's beautiful, but hurts because he's just a tiny afterthought at the bottom compared to everyone else in it.

I don't love him for his irl or anime fame, and he's a boy in an idol girls anime so I know he's going to get left out of a lot of works. But I guess I wish more people saw him like I do.

Do you happen to fall out of love (or rather: have your romantic love turn into a more ordinary, friendly type of love that is lower in intensity) with your 2D love interests?

This happens to me too often. I see a character I could call my waifu; 20-30 months pass; and she becomes just some character I like and am very familiar with. It is especially hard to be excited about your waifu when no new media involving her is published. It's like reading your favourite book for the 20th time and trying to be as pleased as you were the first time you were reading it.

As far as I know, this happens to everyone with their 3D love interests as well (my 3D love experiences also confirm that). How do you deal with this? That is, how do you keep the love intensity going?

I suppose you're right. It's more of a "character I really love" thing to me, rather than an actual bond I create with a character embedded in my brain.

>>14545

>would your reaction to your waifu be different if she had no animation or didn't have a seiyuu, if she was just a character in a novel? Would she then be a different person to you? Will she then be a different person?

Well, I can't answer that since it has never happened. I've never had a significant attraction to a character that was manga/novel-only. But that's probably because I don't read much fiction.

If I had come to love a manga-only character, and then watched the anime of the manga; the character's voice, expressions and body movement would significantly affect my attraction to her.

Ah, actually there is something like an example. I've never played Idolmaster, but I've felt very attracted to Anzu Futaba just by her descriptions in wikis and other sites. However, once I've listened to her character song (I came upon that much later), her voice put me off a bit.

Well, it shouldn't actually affect your attractions to her because if so, chances are it's just infatuation, much like physical attraction. You know, the stuff the makes 3D relationships poisonous.

I mean, my beloved Marisa, for example, her wiki descriptions right from the start was that she was too straightforward, too self-serving, a thief and a person that picks fights just for the hell of it. And on the actual game, players regard Marisa as a very difficult character because she was too fast and she fires mostly in straight patterns. I can attest to that. Even fan depictions are no better in this regard, as she's depicted outright as a man, either by joke or seriously. I can't even look at her naked. But those didn't put me off her.

And there people here at /mai/ that have Saya from Saya no Uta as their waifu. Her girlish form is just an illusion and her real face is monstrous. (Should I even spoiler that?) Yet they're not put off her.
>> No. 14565 [Edit]
>>14561

Hm, I see attraction as having both an audiovisual and a mental/personal aspect. The latter part is of course more important, but the first part is not wholly unimportant (When I said put off, I meant only to a small degree by the way, not completely).

Does anyone ever worry about their waifu?

Like, for example, maybe she has a very stressful or dangerous line of work? Maybe she is a fighter-type character like Nanoha or the Strike Witches and has to fight dangerous enemies that could hurt or even kill her? Or maybe it doesn't even have to be that, maybe she is an idol, and that particular line of work can be mentally taxing and stressful because of how brutal the profession can be. Or maybe it's just something really simple on the outside... like she fights with her best friend or parents. I figure many of us have our ideal scenarios about them and how they might act with us, or things we do with them... But I dunno.

I know that the reality of it in my mind and soul is that she truly can't be hurt, but there are times when I really do just want to hug her and tell her it's okay. Do the rest of you have any opinions on the matter, or stories to share? Sorry if this post is kinda blog-ish, but it's been on my mind all day.

I know a lot of people say that their waifus are perfect. But do you believe that your waifu is perfect, without flaws at all? What would be the difference between ignoring your waifu's flaws as opposed to accepting your waifu's flaws? Is your waifu perfect as you say she is? Surely she has some flaws of her own. But what does /mai/ think? Do you think your waifu's flaws can be turned into strengths, provided if she has any? Or is it just up to the individual's perspective?

Do you ever feel some sort of guilt whenever your waifu commits a questionable act? Do you attempt to rationalize it, accept it, or something else? Can you still see your waifu as 'perfect'?

Her imperfections make her who she is, and i love who she is.

There's nothing i can do about her bad decisions besides support her, changing who she is is out of my control. If people feel comfortable with completely ignoring traits of their waifu to create an ideal character for themselves then that's their business, but loving everything she is, both good and bad is better, in my opinion

I think perfection is relative, so Asuka is perfect for me at least. She may have flaws that make other people dislike her, but I still love those things about her.

If she does some questionable act, I accept it, since it's still her. I might think about what she did a bit, like why she did it or how it affected her and the people around her, but I love her, so I'll always take her side and support her. I'll keep on loving her, so she'll keep on being perfect.

Well I stuck to my word, I ended up watching six episodes.

Thinking about it, even though I've watched AzuDai many times in the past, I think this was the first time that I watched it after fully embracing this whole waifuism thing. It felt really good connecting with her like that again.

I even got a little teary-eyed on one episode I watched where she cried.

Oh, and I did buy her chocolates as well, in the end. I guess the tradition is set in stone now.

So okay, for Valentine's Day, I took Marisa out on a date to the local mall and we had... some onion rings with sour cream dip, then some shrimp katsudon. Yeah, it was a cheap date. But as far as I was doing in the past few days, I really hoped she liked what I did.

But let us not talk about that. What's more interesting to talk about right now is the economical and monetary ways you employ to express your devotion and affection to your beloved. In other words, how do you spend your money for your waifu?

In terms of merchandise, I've bought a plushie and a figure so far. I would buy more, but merch of her isn't exactly easy to come by.

I've also made a habit of buying chocolate for her on Christmas/Valentine's. I seem to be spending more and more on them every time. I bet I'll be spending £20 on a box or something before I know it.

I don't buy much in terms of Big Gifts, but I do like buying him little treats when I see something that reminds me of him. Mostly food but I've picked up a few non-food items, too. I like setting up a romantic atmosphere more than anything and I'm generally spontaneous with the little gifts.

And merch is pretty fun too but I usually can't afford it (as much as I wish I could). It used to matter a lot more to me than it does at this moment, but I'd still like to have a few things.

Do you believe that your waifu exists in some shape or form? As in whether she exists in your mind, in your dreams, some plane of existence or somewhere else entirely? If so, would you like to travel to her world, your world or somewhere else?

If you were to die, would you imagine yourself with your waifu?

Technical answer: Yes, I do.

Kind of depressing answer: Within my own mind only. He is with me now, and he will die with me. We'll truly be together in oblivion, I suppose, where neither of us will exist any more. What a weird and disturbing thought. We are not ready for death yet.

I was going to say more but that's the gist of it.

I agree with this post. If the many-worlds theory is right, then the universe where someone's waifu lives does exist. The chance of this happening increases if the question of the existence of fictional universes is asked.

In other words, if there are really other universes out there, there are greater chances that they are the universes that we came up with using our mind.

And even if she does not exist, then she still exists on my mind and ideals and that is enough.

I'm no physicist so I wouldn't claim to understand the multiverse theory, but I think such trivial interpretations are populace's trash. I find really hard to believe that, just because I can imagine/conceive it, there is a world with an english flying boy called Peter Pan who remains one day old... and whose mother has tentacles for nipples and fangs that reach her anus like those of the in-world green photosynthetic elephants (see what I mean?)... In any case, even if such weird and inaccesible universes were to exist, how could we assert to have any knowledge and love for it, if we can't gather objective knowledge (and love) even from this universe of our own? Once again, the entities living there would be some alterities and not be the things we love, it's ridiculous.

Mai waifu exists, say, as God, numbers, holotypes or abelian groups: as metaphysical concepts that we grasp and use through some semiotic process of representation (narrative, plastic arts, music, biology, maths,...). She is overtly fictional. a frontal lie, and that makes my love honest within this existence haunted by the scam of language et al. signs.

Well, who said it isn't possible? I mean, I have conceived worlds in my dreams that are nothing more of infinitely repeating fractal patterns and geometric shapes (Those are the stuff of my nightmares.), and there can just be a universe out there which an endless dark space with the exception of a marble bust of Napoleon floating idly in the middle of the space. Chances are, those things could exist.

>In any case, even if such weird and inaccesible universes were to exist, how could we assert to have any knowledge and love for it, if we can't gather objective knowledge (and love) even from this universe of our own?

The very existence of humanity as a creature is already a jackpot in the evolutionary lottery, so why can't it happen that this jackpot is repeated in other universes?
