Hello! Very much to be pleasant to me your company, you and that what are you doing. I am your very big fan and would like to give you a gift from my company. We are engaged in architecture and design from photoconductive concrete, and also and we make it. If it is interesting to you, I can offer interesting offers.
the third from the right on the bottom row looks good! Thats a lot of sculpts!!
since I saw her design pic I've been waiting for the day ill be able to bring her home. Keep up the good work.
@gaia_luf_anime haha, yep
@roshwintha , mabe these instead of the winx ones XD
Can't wait to see the finished doll of her! Hope she comes in her lab coat instead of the t-shirt and jeans set, doesn't seem her style and it's making the dolls look a bit too similar.
Nuuuu ;-; Is there a restock plan? If I remember culture japan at AX usually has a lot of the stuff cept figma?

Chitose Smart Doll - tweaks on top of tweaks since June.
How can i order?
I would like to congratulate you on your success with the smart dolls and to wish you an unprecedented success on every journey you decide to embark on. Blessings!
I will pray that the next doll you make, after the ones you're currently working on, is Chitose Shirasawa. That the one smart doll I would buy in a heartbeat! All of your girls, and boy, will be a great acquision someday but I wish for Chitose to be the first smartdoll on my cart.
USD$499.20 that is the price is dollars. You can also do the calculation yourself, by multiplying JPY60,000 x USD 0.00832.
Eiji kind of reminds me of Makoto Yuki, the main protagonist in Persona 3. Here is a picture. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-_bP4GHu_bic/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAAAB0/a9MhNCBqTjo/photo.jpg

今日のミライストアでたくさんの国内外のお客様と出会うことができました。来週の日曜も営業します！Mirai Store Tokyo - also open on Sundays too!
Eiji looks way too 'Bishounen' in this version.
Perhaps adding a little bit more 'meat' will make him look more manly.
I would suggest 'Matsuoka Rin' from 'Free!' as being a good character to take reference from.
@elvenusagi bl lol
"Rolls-Royce" of doll making boutique
hi Danny , i want to ask where can i download more of AFA pics ? haha thank you
Are other mirai related things on sale? I see figmas on the shelf
Ok. I'll try and remember that when I visit the store.
Take of your moccasins just after you enter Mirai Store. Especially if you just stepped in poo.
He looks like a 20 year old boy, I don't want a macho man so he looks fine for me. I don't see why everyone is so afraid that he might look feminine... have you all looked at anime boys? They're skinny with thin and long necks.
Why I'm tagged in this publication?
My vote is "too dark"but just slightly
I have been an anime/manga fanboy since the days of Starblazers and Battle of the Planets.
The first time I visited Japan, in 2006, I took the NEX from Narita to Tokyo. I was only staying in Tokyo for three days before going on to Korea for a week therefore I stored my large luggage at the airport for the weekend taking only a small bag of clothes, my camera bag and backpack in to town. I still got some dirty looks when I was on the train headed to my hotel.
For my second trip, which was just three weeks ago, I took the Limousine Bus to and from the airport. This time I was staying for a week and as I have yet to perfect/attempt the art of traveling light, I did not want to attempt hauling all my stuff via the trains. Additionally I figured since my flight was arriving later in the day (after 5pm) I figured the roads would be clear-ish once I was actually leaving the airport. Fortunately I was right and the worst part about my trip on the bus was the little girl who wouldn't settle down. The nicest part about my trip on the bus, aside from getting dropped off right at my hotel, was that on this trip I got to play paparazzi as we were delayed at the New Otani b/c the Prime Minister was arriving for some shindig. Sadly the lighting was so bad that even with my stabilized telephoto lens I got complete crap photos. Oh well.
I preferred the scenery on the NEX however the convenience of the Limousine Bus was quite nice this trip. If I had to do it again I might try out the Skyliner.
As for getting to and from the airport in my neck of the woods (Houston, TX) I usually either drive and park my car at one of the lots (where I pay $3 or $4 a day) or have a private car pick me up (about $40 and then I throw in a pretty hefty tip of $10 to $20). Our public transit company, METRO, has started an Airport Express service from the main METRO depot in downtown Houston for $15 each way. I have yet to try this out and would only really recommend it if you were staying in downtown.
Just bought my plane ticket this weekend and am headed to Tokyo on 4/20 and departing on 4/26. Still working out the other details but I sincerely hope to be able to meet up with Danny while I am in town.
Does it require a bit of time to figure out how to get around Tokyo? The first time I went I spent some time on the Tokyo Metro website (http://www.tokyometro.jp/global/en/index.html) and was able to plot my course around Tokyo pretty quickly and I was staying out in Monzen-Nakacho. Actually now that I think about it the part of the site you want is the Tokyo Transfer Guide (http://www.tokyo-subway.net/english/). I found this to be a FANTASTIC resource particularly since I had never really used public transportation to any significant extent before I visited Tokyo.
I am going to Tokyo in a few weeks (from April 20th through the 25th) and if I end up making it to Akiba I am more than willing to pick up this figure for you and then ship it to you once I am home in TX. Do you have an idea of how much the figure should cost? I do not want any money up front, just wondering what I should expect to pay.
So they have a moElectronics manga but no eroGenetics? This saddens me somehow.
Companies cracking down on copyright/trademark infringement tends to be more draconian in the EU than it is in the States due to Europe's better protections for creators. The most famous example of this in fandom is the Warhammer 40K fanfilm 'Damnatus' which you can read about here: http://www.cpaglobal.com/ip-review-online/2822/german_law_smites_warhammer_40000_fan_film
The reason copyright/trademark holders tend to over protect their copyrights/trademarks is that if they do not protect them when they become aware of the potential litigation then they can potentially lose control of the material. An excellent example of this is the Conan Properties Inc v. Conans Pizza Inc in which the jury found that Conans Pizza did infringe on the Conan the Barbarian trademark owned by Conan Properties Inc however due to the fact that Conan Properties Inc was aware of Conans Pizza for approx. 5 years before they sought to assert their legal rights over the Conan name and imagery they were not entitled to any damages.
In the early days of the web Paramount went through a phase where they served every website using Star Trek iconography with cease and desist letters in an effort to protect their very valuable trademarks and copyrights related to the Star Trek franchise. The fan backlash was so great that Paramount relented.
Copyright and trademark are very messy areas of law both here in the U.S. and internationally however my take on the issue is that as long as a cosplayer is not making money off of a specific character then there is no real incentive for the company to crack down on that person. This does not mean that the company will not seek to enforce its rights in arenas where money is being made, such as YouTube, deviantart, and books such as Otacool.
IMHO copmanies have no reason, nor the will, to attempt to stop individuals from cosplaying their charaters and sharing their love of these characters with others however they do have a duty to properly protect their property.
I don't see them too often here in Houston however I have noticed an increase in their usage over this winter, particularly when I am on the train.
Of course all this does is make me want to get back to Japan!
I honestly can't remember how I found DannyChoo.com. I had seen one or two of the stormtrooper videos before I started frequenting DCDC however I vaguely recall finding the site via PolyvinylCrush.com, but I could juet be making that up.
My favorite posts are the Day/Week/Some-Period-of-Time in Japan/Tokyo. They remind me of the all too brief time I spent in Tokyo and make me want to go back. Another thing I really enjoy is the behind the scenes posts about the work you guys are doing and the people you are working with. Honestly I enjoy every thing I read here and wouldn't change a thing.
Wow! I love the picture, very well done!
I spend either $4.75 or $6.00 depending on what salad I decide to eat for lunch. Of course this is when I am at the office, when I am off on my own it varies greatly! I have dropped $75 on lunch before but most of the time when not at the office I have something I prepared at home, leftovers, a sandwich, something.
Nice shots! I like the GF1's portability and whatnot but I REALLY love my Canon 20D and should spend any additional photography money on a couple of lenses and, eventually, a newer body and underwater housing.
Having said that the GF1 is a tempting little toy!
I don't know if it is international but for iPhone owners in the U.S. there is an app you can download called Yowza! which gives you access to digital coupons. As I understand it the neat thing about the app is that it interfaces with the GPS in the phone to narrow the selection of coupons to those business' which are in your immediate vicinity.
Beyond that I second Kamui's suggestion as those are about the only coupons I use.
Go see Star Trek! It is an excellent science fiction action flick as well as being an excellent reset for the franchise.
As for annoying people in theaters, I am a big guy and have perfected the art of the obvious stink-eye. I have only had one incident where this did not work and when I asked the gentleman to be quiet he got angry with me and lectured me about rudeness. Shenanigans ensued.
