Fellas, if your girlfriend or boyfriend catches you kissing a picture of an anime girl on your f**kin' iPhone/iPod Touch of all things, there's a huge chance that you won't get laid tonight. Same goes with the gals if they have a boyfriend or girlfriend. Exclamation

Edit- Then again, if the gal or guy is into Hentai, there's a bigger chance that the person that got caught will get laid.

bighead711, you so have a point there. This reminds of the aspects of dating sims: They can hinder the true aspect of going out and finding a real date yourself.

I've become used to people "talking to themselves" when on the phone.

But there's no way in hell I'm ever going to get used to people kissing their mobile phone. That's just freaky.

That app is, admittedly, a good marketing gimmick and it'll be interesting to see how well it does. If anything, it could help open the anime market a bit more for those curious about the app, but having no knowledge about anime.

Still, though... kissing the phone? And I don't dare think about those who take anime character affections a bit too far. *shiver*

If anything, I'm going to think twice about touching the phone of a user who has this app installed.

Bwahahahaha, oh god yes! Laughing

I have a feeling this series will have a better reception among the otaku than say Aoi Hana (they're both good yuri titles, mind you). That's of course the producers play their marketing cards right, and this is a nice yet very hilarious first step! Now we need that girl who licked that PSP a few years back to do this, and this gimmick will be utterly won! Surprised

I agree. Its one thing to play a dating sim, its another to kiss your phone. That is creepy and possibly unsanitiy as well. I've said this before and I will say this again, some people have way too much free time on their hands that they kow what to do with.

Why? Rolling Eyes Well on second though, it's Japan. where else would such a concept have a market? Afterall it must be terrible to have a mobile phone that nobody wants to call you on. Laughing

On third thought................... Wink

I'm thinking the kind of person that would actually kiss their phone with this app, is the kind of person who does not have a boyfriend/girlfriend.

Can't imagine why someone with an actual human mate would ever consider such ridiculousness.

Now, for me on the other hand...

Guys, have any of you heard of Love Plus and its effect on Japanese society? If you have then you shouldn't be so surprised to Sasameki Koto.

dormcat, I looked up Love Plus and it sounds equally as disturbing. Hell, as much as I want a legally obtained hentai-free dating sim from a company, the concept of dating sims can be freaky in general.

You know for all the time that would be wasted kissing your cell phone you could be..

Oh forget it. I'm starting to think most otaku don't even want to kiss real people anyway. 2D complex gone too far.
