The man who defines himself as a “fictional gender” decided in 2018 to marry Hotsun Miku, a fictional character who represents a 16-year-old pop singer.

Ahikido Kondo spent about 2 million yen (approximately C $ 20,000) on an informal wedding that his family did not even attend.

The Japanese man fell in love with Virtual Singer in 2008 and was able to interact with her for the first time in 2018, thanks to a sophisticated device that creates a hologram from a computer-synthesized character.

Unfortunately, the device used by Ahikido Kondo recently stopped supporting software he used to chat with his virtual wife.

The 38-year-old man can no longer chat with his fictional wife.

“My love for Mike has not changed,” he declared in an interview with Maine.
