Ridiculing Japanese dudes with Love Plus girlfriends seems passé now that mega-blog BoingBoing joined in, but this Famitsu excerpt merits mentioning because it brings Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima, No More Heroes director Goichi Suda, and Love Plus together in one story.
This is Kojima relaying the tale (translated by 1UP):
“I was talking with Goichi Suda earlier, and [he] told me about this guy he saw who went to a movie theater by himself but bought two tickets. Suda was curious, so he went in with him and saw him take his DS out of his backpack, open up the case, and place it in the seat next to him. He had his ‘girlfriend’ on the screen!”
Two amusing conclusions you can glean from this story:
- The “guy” was probably Suda himself, or
- Suda spends his nights following guys into movie theaters to investigate their love lives and later share their secret shame with his friends, as if these introverts are the real weirdos
That’s right, Goichi Suda, I’m on to you.
