Kondo was bullied by his female superiors at work 10 years ago which ended him getting suspended from work. This has caused him a lot of trauma. It went to the point of him thinking that maybe he has trouble dealing with real-life women and decided to have complete distrust on them.

Later on, he found out about the Vocaloid singer Hatsune Miku in which he said that the songs helped him heal during that decade of unhappiness. He was so in love with Miku that he even bought the Gatebox, a virtual assistant-like device that offers digital companionship. The said device is priced at $2,500 USD.

His announcement of marrying Miku and the official date of his wedding was announced in August. This was also the period where he was already buying wedding rings for him and his Hatsune Miku plush toy.

He admits that this took him a lot of guts to make this wedding a reality as he knows that a lot of people will judge him. This doesn’t seem to matter to him anymore because tying the knot with someone he loves the most is what makes him happy.
