True love can take many forms. In this case, it has taken the
form of a Korean man falling in love with, and eventually
marrying, a large pillow with a picture of a woman on it.

Lee Jin-gyu fell for his 'dakimakura' - a kind of large,
huggable pillow from Japan, often with a picture of a popular
anime character printed on the side.

In Lee's case, his beloved pillow has an image of Fate
Testarossa, from the 'magical girl' anime series Mahou Shoujo
Lyrical Nanoha.

Now the 28-year-old otaku (a Japanese term that roughly
translates to somewhere between 'obsessive' and 'nerd') has
wed the pillow in a special ceremony, after fitting it out with a
wedding dress for the service in front of a local priest. Their
nuptials were eagerly chronicled by the local media.

'He is completely obsessed with this pillow and takes it
everywhere,' said one friend.

'They go out to the park or the funfair where it will go on all
the rides with him. Then when he goes out to eat he takes it
with him and it gets its own seat and its own meal,' they
added.

The pillow marriage is not the first similarly-themed unusual
marriage in recent times - it comes after a Japanese otaku
married his virtual girlfriend Nene Anegasaki, a character who
only exists in the Nintendo DS game Love Plus, last November.

Love pillow

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_pillow
In Japan, love pillows are a subset of dakimakura (抱き枕, literally "hugging pillow") and a type of inflatable sex toy. They usually have life-size pictures of anime characters or porn actresses on them.
