Japanese man marries robot girl


This 21 December 2013 punk rock music video from Scotland says about itself:

The Valves – Robot Love

Live at Edinburgh Liquid Rooms

The Scottish band The Valves wrote this song much earlier, in 1977.

However, now something happens not in song lyrics, but in reality.

From the New York Times, 19 January 2019:

Do You Take This Robot …

When Akihiko Kondo, a 35-year-old school administrator in Tokyo, strolled down the aisle in a white tuxedo in November, his mother was not among the 40 well-wishers in attendance. For her, he said, β€œit was not something to celebrate.”

You might see why. The bride, a songstress with aquamarine twin tails named Hatsune Miku, is not only a world-famous recording artist who fills up arenas throughout Japan: She is also a hologram.

Mr. Kondo insists the wedding was not a stunt, but a triumph of true love after years of feeling ostracized by real-life women for being an anime otaku, or geek.
