So.... mhh....
The item/ character looks super adorable.
I love the concept and the personality traits and the fact it's a pink robot with four arms and a tv for a head.

But if it is sentient and has feelings and a personality calling it Object of Infatuation feels a bit off.
I know I'm over thinking it and no one really cares plus, being called the object of something of another doesn't mean it's treating the character as an actual object like a laptop or something.

You can be the object of attention without being objectified.... I think?


If possible I believe the name should be changed to something more original...
The oni one at least got a pun for a name, so...

What you guys think?

Also, I'll post a list of user suggested alternate names.

I understood where you are coming from with the name but I think it was more to match the oni I guess being that he likes objects idk how to explain that better sweatdrop .

.... really?
Okay.
I didn't knew it was a thing. The only tv head bot I know was the one from FLCL.

Just leave it as is.

It's not like it's doing anybody any harm, right?

Bah, I know.
I'm just old and I get confused easily.

Oh hai! haven't talked in a while! How are you doing? Also, if you had to name the pink four armed robot what would you have called it?

"eyes glued to the tv"

I guess you have never heard of that phrase

Although, one could always rephrase it and say
"eyes glued to the puter"

Object of Infatuation? You better believe it!

i..........what?
i think it's referring to the fact that the character/item is a living television
and, like, a television is an object that many people love
i, so, uh...........why does it need to be renamed???

psa: yes, objectification of persons is wrong but this is not whats happening here
like.....what???

I'm actually not sure what I'm seeing. It did remind me of the music video for Video Killed the Radio Star. There were creepy TV-headed characters there.
