Man 'wants to marry' cartoon characterThursday, October 30, 2008
A man has launched a campaign in Japan to legally allow comic book-loving humans to marry their favourite fictitious characters.
More than 1,000 people have signed Taichi Takashita's on-line petition to establish a law permitting marriage to comic characters, according to The Daily Telegraph.
Takashita says he feels more at ease in the "two-dimensional world."
He said: "I am no longer interested in three dimensions. I would even like to become a resident of the two-dimensional world.
"However, that seems impossible with present-day technology. Therefore, at the very least, would it be possible to legally authorise marriage with a two-dimensional character?"
