Kannagi Boyfriend Angers Otaku

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:

Man, some people have such dirty minds. How does having a past boyfriend mean she's not a virgin?
Geez, bunch of perverts who need to get a life.

That comic is pretty amusing though. XD

Sad, sad people. Just sad. And this is why I don't like the word otaku. Japan really need some help with some things.

About her popularity Correct me if I am wrong but The author of Kannagi works in a certain Doujin group called TYPE-MOON known for its visual novels type-moon works are popular in 2ch thus this outbreak lead to a chain reaction.
Other than it helps that she is a Delicious Flat Chested Waki Miko, but anyways Kannagi is SERIOUS BUSINESS

have a reference link a blog to a blog

New news, Yesterday, it was announced the Kannagi manga will be put on hold due to the author's bad physical condition.

More than likely, she was jumped by a bunch of otaku and beaten up.

Yeah, I heard about that. I'm sure the chaos that the Nagi/virgin thing caused is what's really behind this postponement.

These otaku are also perverts. (more then usual) Who ever said she ever did anything with this guy. Besides, it was the "god version" of her that said it right. But hey, if we'd stop trying to understand them, we wouldn't ask.
