Dinner for 2D

Valentine’s is over, but the love keeps going! (Not really, but I’ve been sitting on this for almost a month. Cut me some damn slack.)

It’s a special night for you and your significant other. But wait; Is your waifu/husbando trapped in the 2D realm? No problem, man! These are a few selected photos I gathered from /a/ that couples took together to commemorate their undying/minimally interactive love:

Let me just say it warms my cockles to see Osaka and other Azumanga Daioh characters immortalized in this event. These are just the highlights that caught my eye from the several threads showing their efforts. Composition, setting, and themes related to the character are what I’m impressed by, as I’m sure anyone who appreciates the effort put into some of these photos. I was pleasantly surprised that many of the participants went to town with their idols from The Idolm@ster.

Leave it to Producers to give the presentation a little oomph that’s just right for their idols. I noticed there was a little lacking in best idol, though…

Ah, there we go! I’ve actually been doing this for two years now. I wasn’t aware of /a/’s threads until this year, though — Someone actually asked what we were supposed to do with the food offered; eat them ourselves, leave it overnight like a ritual offering …I don’t know. But what I do know is, when you got a beautiful thing going’ on, it’d be foolish to let go.
