Anime Females Vs. Real Women: Which Do Japanese Geeks Like Better?

The eternal question of whether or not otaku (geeks) like anime ladies over real ladies has apparently been answered. Or something!

Over a four day period last fall, a Japanese tech firm used a free Senki Zessho Symphogear iOS app to poll male anime fans, asking them what kind of females they liked: 2D, 2.5D, or 3D.

2D ladies refers to drawn females, while 2.5D refers to 3D computer generated characters, figures, or even voice actresses, by default somewhat, as they bring the 2D into the 3D world. And 3D females refers to, as the results pointed out, "real women."

Out of the 500 male otaku who gave valid responses, 23 percent of those polled said they liked 2D women, while 9.6 percent said they like 2.5D females. Nearly 66 percent (65.8 percent, to be exact) said they liked 3D women. Yes, that means that over thirty percent (32.6 percent, to be exact) did not select "real women". (Culture)

This article is ridiculouse I can't believe that people are seriously polling about things like this ; which is better 2d 2.5 or 3d. Really? If you dont know its 2.5 they can move some talk and do other things. Come on people its not rocket science. With 3d its always lets do something or lets watch seinfeld hmmmf.

Real women are for guys who can't get anime chicks.

Hmm, tough question.

Let me consult with my significant other. And by that I mean my full size body pillow adorned with the likeness of a transsexual pregnant centaur shrine maiden.

Considering the people likely to actually have that app installed, I think we can safely say that the sample for this survey was rather biased towards a very specific sub-group of Japanese anime otaku.
