Here's something I've been meaning to blog about for awhile now. But my laptop problems got in the way before, so it had to wait until now. So perhaps you're familiar with one of this season's most popular series, "Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens." Lead character Nagi has taken the otaku culture by storm, easily becoming the most loved & worshiped character since Haruhi Suzumiya (her popularity has been compared to Haruhi's quite often as of late). Personally I don't get what the big deal is. I mean she's a DFC, so what? Those are everywhere these days. Then again I should mention that I haven't actually seen Kannagi yet, so maybe I shouldn't talk just yet.
Anyway, in the most recent chapter of the Kannagi manga, Nagi revealed that she actually has an ex-boyfriend. This bit of news put the otaku fandom into a nuthouse, with former devotees now angry with Nagi. They claim this bit of news proves that she's impure & is "second-hand goods." Otaku are reported to have destroyed their old manga volumes & have canceled their upcoming Kannagi figures, pillow cases, & DVDs in a fit of anger & feelings of betrayal. They feel their imaginary wife has lied to & cheated on them.
Keep in mind that all Nagi said in the manga was that she had an ex. There wasn't anything about her actually sleeping with him or anything. Overreact much? Check out this fan-made comic about the situation so you can understand the insanity of the situation:
