Japanese people like food--Japanese people like eating with people--Japanese people like anime characters--Japanese people like to date 2D characters (since marrying is currently illegal)--it is to no surprise that all these elements would come together and fuse into one, otakuish ritual. This ritual consists of taking out your most expensive bottle of wine, your most yummy cake, and a nice plump steak, and eating it next to your 2D girlfriend who is confined to a television screen prison.
This is a most important ritual in the life of any true otaku; especially during the christmas season, when eating with a girl is most sought after. I wonder why Japanese animators haven’t jumped on this phenomena, and began animating dinner conversations with girls of varying degrees of moe. Either way, enjoy this small sample,(very small sample) that was posted on 2channel of people dining with their waifus. Bon appetit reader-kun.
