Do you really WANT a Nazi waifu? Do you really want a waifu of any kind? A confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished.

I posted pictures of Nazi girls and someone called Emblematic wrote:

Are there dvd series or graphic novel series featuring these kind of hot anime NSDAP type scallywags available for purchase? Do you know their names?

Do you really WANT to get obsessed with anime girls? Do you want to fall in love with a girl who is too perfect to be real?

Do you want to love something that can’t love you back? (I guess many people would answer yes…)

Since 2002 or so, “waifu” has had a special status in anime culture:

If you DO want a waifu, you probably want one that is moe:

One thing to remember is that if a girl character in anime seems better than all the girls around you, she probably has an unrealistically male personality that mirrors some aspect of your own personality.

E.g. Consider the soldier-girl from Amagi Brilliant Park, or Juvia from Fairy Tail.

Juvia is a super-powerful wizard. She is a combat-ready badass. And then she falls in love and becomes the most sentimental, love-struck fool imaginable.

Juvia is not typical of women. Juvia is a reflection of the males who watch anime. We are seriously effective badasses – and then we fall in love and become fools.

The soldier girl is NOT a typical woman. Due to her background, she was raised to be a brutal, violent, stoic, unsentimental fighter. She solves problems with her gun.

And when she has to persuade someone to cooperate, her only method is to try to fire a round past his head and threaten his life with her gun. She doesn’t try feminine wiles or raw sex appeal. She goes to blunt commands and threats.

This is not typical for women. This IS typical for a lot of men who watch anime. We are well-adapted to situations that require blunt words and harsh actions. We suck at persuasion.

So, lastly, let’s consider various Nazi-like waifus. I don’t watch Girls und Panzer so I don’t know if they’re actual Nazis, but they’re close enough:

If you are a white man and you have fallen in love with a Nazi anime girl, I have some news for you – some part of your subconscious mind regards your white identity as precious. You are projecting your white pride outward into a fantasy woman who is far too perfect to ever exist in the flesh.

Real white women – for the most part – don’t like Nazis, or white pride, or any kind of white identity. There are a few exceptions, of course, but most of the people who dig Nazis are non-breeding white weirdoes like this guy:

Or non-white people like this married couple:

(If they are true to the Nazi way, they will have to have kids, right, because their genes are superior, right? I think that’s how it works. Will they still be able to play Nazi when they have a bunch of whiny kids with full diapers?)

Love is an ideal, and modern movies allow us to tell fictitious stories about our ideals like this one:

“Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing: A confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished.”
-Goethe

So I post a lot of pictures, including pictures of cute Nazi girls. Bear in mind that actual Nazis did not send cute girls to do the fighting. The cute Nazi girl is a fantasy. You might play-act or LARP that fantasy, but that doesn’t make it real.

The hetero men who paint these pretty girls are basically admitting that they want beautiful, sexually desirous, fertile, combat-ready white wives; they know that they will never get such wives, and that they would not be able to live with them even if by some miracle they were married to such incarnate goddesses.

The only way that the Nazi waifu meme could ever become real would be for it to appeal to real-life white women, who would cosplay as Nazis in order to attract white husbands. I don’t think that’s going to happen. There will be a few cosplayers who will get some boyfriends, but the white countries are going into severe demographic winter. Dressing up in a Nazi uniform is not going to turn that around any time soon.

And also, claiming “The Paper” as your waifu will not give anyone paper-manipulation superpowers. I’m sorry that I had to be the one to tell you this.

So in general, I advise against waifu obsession. You might try dating real-life girls, but you’re not likely to find a real-life girl who is as pretty as an anime character. Go ahead and date, just don’t try to hold real-life girls to anime standards.
