Man No Longer Able to Communicate with His “Wife” After Software Issue
What is our world coming to? There are a lot of bad marriages that take place now, especially in America, but we’re not the only wacky ones.
Fly over to Japan with me and let’s talk about Akihiko Kondo who has lost the ability to communicate with his wife due to a software issue. They’ve been married for four years and this is truly a sad situation, right?
Well, not so fast. Akihiko Konda is a Japanese man who identifies as “fictosexual”, meaning that he is attracted to fictional characters. In fact, that’s what he married, a fiction character, a hologram in fact.
The Daily Wire reported,
A “fictosexual” man can no longer communicate with his “wife” of four years. Akihiko Kondo, a 38-year-old Japanese man, wed a holographic image of the blue-haired anime character Hatsune Miku in 2018. The character is described as 16 years old, the New York Post reported.
Kondo fell in love with the character in 2008 after he became ostracized from his peers following intense bullying at work. Technology made it possible for the anime fan to interact with her beginning in 2017 thanks to a Gatebox machine. This $1,300 device allows users to interact with characters using holograms. This was also how Kondo was able to “marry” the object of his affection.
It doesn’t matter if you understand this relationship. It only matters if this Otaku man is happy. Otaku is a person who is a manga and tech fan. Good luck to him. https://t.co/NDI14bB95b

So the reason that they can no longer communicate is because the software support has been eliminated, therefore, she is effectively dead.
I don’t even know what to say about this. How have we fallen this far as the human race? I feel bad for this guy in that he felt like he needed to be in love with a fictional hologram instead of a real human being. It must really be a lonely existence for him. I hope that he just comes to his senses and finds a real woman instead of a fake one.
