I know also that in Japan a person who sticks out is punished by others. It’s really strange. But Japan’s education system not only about not expressing your own opinion. Here is some more information about education in Japan https://eduessayhelper.org/blog/education-japan.html
Congrats, Danny! Just wanted to let you know I enjoyed reading your post "How Discovering Japan Changed My Life". It's a long post but extremely inspiring to those who want to learn Japanese and/or move to Japan.
You ask us to share what other Japan blogs we visit. So here goes: There's a slice-of-life blog I like called Japan Australia (whom I featured in http://japaneseup.com/best-japan-blogs/ alongside 25 other Japan bloggers). This is a blog containing useful tips and advice for living in or travelling to Japan.
The blogger is an Aussie who lives and works in Gifu and he has been in Japan for over 12 years. On his blog, he shares his experiences about Japan and highlights the lighter aspects of the country.
These are best for me forever. Thanks in advance
all those figurines.....
Mr. Danny, please try to make "faceplate expressions" for the smartdoll. Then assort them in packs of
1. Action Pack
2. Angry Pack
3. Suprise Pack
4. Sadness Pack...any
....it might work....
Hope to start seeing some production pics soon!
Haha ye, got myself into the very same situation of being unable to find any job that has to do with my hobbies. So even if there're some benefits making a life of mine easier, it still doesn't make me happy or more close to the dreamed target. I wonder though, how is it going in 2016, still sitting in beautiful Singapore?
Still...I was glad to find this particular post. Coz even if my current job offers me free drinks, toilet & internet only I'm able (due to being top worker in the company) to learn languages/get to know new stuff as the results produced are enough to allow me to work 1h only and do whatever I want:D
Only one drawback is the paycheck & my ambitions -here most of $$$ is spent on food+housing+little to put aside and my ambitions are little, for the thing I do is already mastered. So I'm bored not to mention I got better education than this.
But hey! life is about progress so gotta gain more knowledge and search a way to transfer to Japan (if failed first to Korea/Canada/Taiwan or Singapure).
Good luck for everyone!
This is why we love Asia :)

Congratulations Danny, can't wait to see the new line.
Now, when you say "worldwide"...
Congrats. at some point I'd love for you to make some for Strike Witches.
can't say why they would say no. that's licensing fees for them.
Congrats! Cant wait to see what you do with it.
SMART TANKS WITH BUILT IN MP3 PLAYERS THAT PLAY RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES
any news about price and when / where to preorder
That is awesome, congratulations!
Does Miho SmartDoll come with a tank? I'll totally buy it if you release all 5 Team Anko girls + Panzer Tank (preferably remote controlled like a drone) :)
Omg. Make a smart doll tank!
Now let's wait for Smart Dolls of Darjeeling, Nonna, and Mika :D
Sweet. Now if only I can have Mako sit in my lap whenever I drive my BX-2...
Ernest Welp here's your chance
does it come with Pz IV?
I'm glad to hear this news! How about Miho's sister Maho? Will it become a smartdoll in the future too?
Would you be making a 1/3 Tanks as well?
Just to let you know that my application for the worldwide license of Girls Und Panzer Smart Dolls came through.
So beautiful ! I NEED IT !!
Currently saving for Harmony, she is so beautiful!
We share the same passion! Though I must admit that you're an amazing person because most of your knowledge are self-taught! I envy and admire your ability and passion at the same time. I do hope and want to be like you one day too, being able to live and work in Japan. I've always wanted to learn Japanese but laziness strikes me all the time. How I wish I were half as hardworking and passionate as you are D:
Any chance for the XL bust shape to come in medium? It look awsome and pretty natural but sooo big. lol.
man, this figure looks awesome!
Isn't she a cutie
he has a package there
"Hey kids, wanna buy some clothes?"
Student at Pasadena City College working to be a video game journalist. I enjoy video games, anime, and reading up on Japanese culture.
Man I did not expect to show up in 2 pictures this post.
Holy crap thats me! Had fun at AX this year and thanks for signing my Moekana 2nd edition Danny!
I'd love to upgrade my Kinokuniya card with this design if the LA one gets it.
It'd be awesome to be able to fly in that plane.
Looks like something you can throw in as a limited edition bonus for a future product XD.
Never had beef katsu, everywhere i've gone to only has pork or chicken.
I can only imagine how breathtaking it would feel to be right here.
Started off with Gundam Wing when it first aired in the US and have been a fan of Gundam since. My all time favorites are the more recent entries with Gundam 00 and Gundam Unicorn. The concept of this new series makes me wish we could utilize GunPla like this in real life. Hope it's decent at the least.
Durian, you either like it or you don't. Trying to like it seems impossible.
Exciting news for those of us who signed the petition! Congratulations Tokyo for being the 2020 Olympic site. Gotta try and go there by then.
This is pretty awesome! Would love my pizza delivered via Miku mobile XD
I play Vanguard, but collect Weiss Schwarz. There rest of these card games aren't really played in my area.
I love the selection of posters you have for your first convention. Wished you had those designs during AX though.
Have this on my shelf :D. Armor Girls figures are pretty cool.
Oh yeah I can definitely use a new wallpaper. This is lovely.
As much as I'd like one I dunno about walking around with it here in the States. >_<
Still remember that someone handed you some during your Anime Expo panel last month. Wonder where I can get one around here.
I feel like it's unusual to not see Danny smiling in his pictures..It must be that bad.
This is one of the top things I like about Japanese society. They never take anything that's not their's, and may even help you locate it/keep it safe.
Still always wary of instant noodles/ramen of anykind. Are there any exception brands of instant noodles from Japan?
One day I'd like to have an authentic Japanese beef bowl that's not from a US Branch of Yoshinoya.
As you say, traffic in the Los Angeles area can be pretty bad, especially a few select freeways (5 and 405 freeways I'm looking at you always getting jammed every day of the week -_-) But at least I don't travel on them very often.
Living near the Los Angeles area there's a lot of Ramen places. I can take a 15 minute drive to Little Tokyo or drive less than 4 miles for about 3 different shops. One of my favorite is Daikokuya Ramen, and another is Tamaya. Both have several locations in the large LA area.
All those ARTFX figures look so detailed and awesome!
Big Chibi Mikasa is cute.
