If you had the chance to meet the person who designed/created your waifu, what would you do? Would you have something you'd like to ask or say to them?

First I would thank him from the bottom of my heart for writing her and then overwhelm him with questions, and oh boy, I do have a lot of them:
*When is her birthday?
*What kind of food does she like?/Does she have a sweet tooth?
How's her relationship with her parents?
*What do you envision her becoming in the future? would she take an academic path, teaching or another one?
Have you thought of writing about her shenanigans back in middle school?
How much does she actually know? Is there something that makes her play dumb or is she being considerate of everyone keeping secrets?
How much more will she grow, and in that vein how tall is she
Favorite music?
Are her parents as extravagant as her?
*How bad of a drunk is she?
Was her final appearance truly what you came up with? She was described a tad bit different in the very first chapter.
*Are there any alternate universes in the story?
If yes, could I take you daughter's hand in marriage?

Since the day I came to terms with my love towards Nozomi, I've always disliked her creator. I disliked him for writing such a lovely, kind and cute character and then putting her into such a boring, mediocre, cliched show. I know that since she became my waifu, my Nozomi was no longer bound by the plot of her source material, and I could love her the way she is, disregading any kind of "character developments" that took place at the behest of her author. But when I learnt that in the later chapters of VN he had her cut her long, beautiful hair and I couldn't help but dislike him even more.

It's all in the past now, though. Her creator died last year, and she was pictured on his coffin, along with his other creations. Here she is, 2nd from the right, with her hair uncut. I guess that in death, he undid one of the wrongs he commited towards Nozomi, but I still dont think I'd wish to have met him or spoken to him.

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.

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.

>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'm unsatisfied with my life, but I'm content with mediocrity

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.

>Also not too sure about "outgrowing" waifuism. OP, are you sure you're not just as guilty of participating in waifuism as a "scene"?
Definitely not, no. Its just that Im nearing 30, so Im most definitely older than most of this board. I found my Waifu almost 8 years ago and still think about her, its just that Im at a point in my life where Im questioning it. But then again, Im worrying about many of my decisions I made in the last 10 or so years, like, Im literally the same as I was 15 years ago. Playing videogames most of the time, never working for more than a year straight without getting kicked or quitting myself, never had a girlfriend. Im pretty much the definition of a loser Im afraid. So maybe its not that Im "outgrowing" waifuism, its just that Im questioning myself too much recently. I have a hard time putting this stuff into words, Its 5am here, english isnt my first language and I didnt plan to go offtopic so much, but I felt like talking about it somewhere. Or at least to put it into words somewhere.

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.

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?

I like ZUN's design the best. alphes has certainly influenced Yuugi's popular image, and I'd say in a positive way, but his(?) work lacks the subtlety of ZUN's. Probably because alphes forgets the short hair growing at the back of Yuugi's head near her neck and replaces it with that one sexy strand hanging from her right temple to her shoulder. The idea is that since Yuugi is wild, her hair should be wild, and both capture that much. However, there's a difference in how Yuugi's hair is unkempt. alphes' Yuugi has "let her hair down" like an unmarried (free to be courted) woman. That's sexy, and Yuugi almost letting her kimono fall off while blushing a little makes it even more so.

ZUN's original is more like "doesn't dress". You see, hair, especially in 2d context, is supposed to work like clothing. The outer layer starts at the top of one's head and all hair that doesn't directly originate from there enters our vision from under that main hair-mass. A bit like a proper school uniform, with the shirt covering the beginning of the skirt, and the skirt covering the beginning of the stockings. Interrupting this flow is breaching a girl's defenses - a note to everyone who loves zettai ryouiki.

Where Yuugi's tuft of hair grows is invisible thanks to ZUN-art, but the design clearly violates the layers. Even more, it can be imagined visible just like her panties under that potentially transparent skirt. If alphes' Yuugi has let the viewer in, ZUN's Yuugi has never considered that division of proper and shameful existence. By letting her hair down and combing it back to order, alphes' Yuugi can switch between lewd and proper. ZUN'z Yuugi is in a mixed state of innocence and lewdness with no obvious entering or exiting. This goes well with the "gym outfit" idea: shameless physicality. Going even further, alphes' Yuugi is an unattainable ideal female (power, sex appeal, gentleness, you name it). ZUN's Yuugi is superhuman but not pure (like Reimu, youkai, and the Lunarians are), and as such is rightly punished. The chains, too, make sense.

It may not be correct, but I think the concept of Pandemonium, or the splitting of devas and asuras into good and evil, is central to ZUN's oni. Especially

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

>08/29/14
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.

Do you guys own merchandise of your waifu?

I myself dont. There isnt much of her to begin with, but i always get asked by people who know i have a waifu why i dont own this statue or this poster and stuff. My answer is always: "I dont need it". I know i love her more than anyone of these neckbeards spending hundreds of dollars for some cheap plastic statues, but sometimes i cant help but feeling bad for being too cheap to buy her figure (there is only one of good quality of her anyway, but costs more than hundred dollars).

So how about /mai/?
Picture semi-related, its not my waifu but its still related to the topic. I also choosed a not-lewd figure in case haruhi happens to be someones waifu.

[spoile]Sometimes i wish there wouldnt exist merchandise with her, especially because it pisses me of to see her figure standing around in some fat neckbeards basement or when seeing videos of a "unboxing" and idiots commenting "post pantyshots x-DDD LOL"... But thats just a random sidenote.

I somewhat relate to your post. I doubt I will ever see merchandise that features her alone, much less objects like figures... so all I have is my imagination + her scenes and panels.
>> No. 20517 [Edit]
>>20514
I can certainly relate to the bit about only having your imagination and panels. My lady love gets very little fan art, and most of it doesn't meet my obscenely high standards for saving. So basically a good 90% at least of my folder is manga crops. I don't mind it too much though, it's consistent at least so I have a very good idea of how she looks in my mind's eye that isn't confused by different art styles.

I do not own any merchandise, though I do have plans to purchase a daki, but that's my limit. The way I see it, figurines, plushes, &c. are not a necessity to love, and, sometimes, rather than being a representation of ones devotion, they could also serve the adverse purpose of steering one's devotion away from personal love into the realm of idolatry. In other words, surrounding one's self with such things may make their waifu more of a plastic figure than a living concept. While she is superior and clearly distinct from all 3DPD, I personally feel most comfortable limiting myself to pictures and a daki.

That's just me, though. When it comes to relationships such as these, varying individual approaches are to be expected.
