here's an interesting story i found on the internet, its quite sweet

From love of anime to love of a man

By MAMI MARUKO

When Mel Ushikubo, 35, saw the name of her future husband, Kohei, on the Internet, she immediately wanted to see him in person, as that was the name of a character in one of her favorite anime.

"I was an anime freak, and saw about 100 anime, including 'Naruto,' 'One Piece' and 'Orange Road' in Canada."

The couple met in Vancouver in September 2006, first getting in touch with each other through the website of Vancouver Japanese Language Meetup, a group that arranges exchange programs between Japanese and Canadians.

Kohei, now 33, was pursuing an MBA at a university in Vancouver. After meeting the Chiba Prefecture native for the first time, Mel immediately wanted to see him again, so she e-mailed him inviting him to a party the following week. After three weeks of hanging out together, they started dating.

Kohei's MBA course ended in December 2006 and he came back to Japan. Mel, a native of Ottawa, came to Japan on a working holiday visa the following March. They lived together for a year and got married in February 2008. They now reside in Ota Ward, Tokyo, with their 19-month-old daughter, Chihana.
