Japan - Man Marries Hologram Of VR-Singer Hatsune Miku

The mother of 35-year-old Mr Akihiko Kondo refused to attend the wedding of her only son in the Japanese capital Tokyo as he prepared to marry Miss Hatsune Miku, or at least a hologram of the virtual reality singer.

Hatsune Miku is a female hologram with saucer eyes and long blue braids. She is supposedly 16 years old, but her young age is not a problem since she is not a human being.

Kondo's mother was not the only one who failed to attend the 'wedding' of her son, other family members of the man did not show up. In spite of this, Kondo spent almost $20,000 on a wedding ceremony attended by 40 people.

"I have never cheated on her, I have always been in love with Miku" says Kondo. "I think of her every day." Kondo purchased a floating hologram from Hatsune Miku that can talk and move.

She also does some things in the household: she wakes him in the morning and uses the lights in the house so that when Kondo comes home he does not enter a dark room.

She also tells him when it is time to go to bed. At night, Kondo has a hugging version of Hatsune with him in bed. The doll wears a wedding ring that fits exactly around her left wrist.

Nasty experiences with girls during his teenage years and a nervous breakdown after a relationship with a woman in a previous job, finally led Kondo to the realization that he has always loved Miku Hatsune. "Girls did not want me, they found me a scary otaku", says Kondo, referring to the slightly negative term for 'geeks' or computer nerds.

Gatebox, the company that conceived and manufactured Hatsune Miku, has sent Kondo a 'marriage certificate'.

According to Gatebox, more than 3,700 acts have been provided in the course of time to people who want to connect to virtual reality characters.

Kondo hopes that his wedding can take away the shame surrounding love for these types of characters. "We must consider all kinds of love and happiness."

Hatsune Miku has fans around the world, millions of followers on social media and worked with Pharrell Williams.
