Love Plus marriage on CNN!

3:00 PM on 12.18.2009 // Jon Snyder

Remember that guy who married Nene Anegasaki from Love Plus?

Apparently, he's managed to gain quite a bit of fame as a result of his unusual wedding... so much so that CNN decided to do a report on him. It's nice to see that an ailing cable news channel with rapidly falling ratings still has time to report on quirky stories from Japan that we covered a month ago. Protip for CNN: check Japanator more often!

In all seriousness, I have to compliment Kyung Lah's reporting on this piece. Among most people, this virtual marriage elicits reactions ranging from bewildered bemusement to moral outrage. However, Kyung's report is actually pretty neutral and balanced, even given the controversial subject matter. Bravo!

A video of the report is embedded below the jump. See if you can spot the Bakemonogatari poster in the background!
