In something of a cross between Lars And The Real Girl and that NYT story documenting the manga and anime hyperfans who end up falling in love with inanimate objects, Lee Jin-gyu fell hard for Fate Testarossa, his “dakimakura” – the body sized Japanese pillows with anime characters printed on them. (Testarossa is the “magical girl” from the anime series “Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.’)
The 28-year-old Lee wed the pillow in in front of a local priest in a special ceremony earlier this week, after dressing his dakimakura in a wedding dress. Above, a day at the fair with the couple.
Now, you might laugh at this, but remember the Taylor Lautner pillow? See, now you understand.
