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

As usual, we will see next year part of this post coming to reality.
On another note, I don't know if you know about the Carbon3D.
It's a new approach to 3D printing using light, oxygen and resin to produce smooth prototyping, and even manufacturing.
They claim to be 25x to 100x faster than most 3D printers on the market.
You can see it in action with much more detailed explanation on their TED Talk here:
This is interesting :3
Would be a nice accessory for Mirai nendo.
Definitely NOT on my watch list...
The animation isn't that great in the trailer.
True it's fun to see "moefication" of some things like the Chtulu mythos, the mathematical theorem or the quantum physics
but the KanColle verse doesn't appeal to me. I fear it will be another comedy anime void of scenarii, character development
and good animation.
All I see is another Strike Witches (series I despise, and yes I watched it) to compel to the urge of some.
The first anime I watched were Saint Seya, Dragonball Z and Macross (Robotech version).
The anime which hooked me up to the otakulture would be Slayers and the first I have recorded would be Plastic Little (I think I have the VHS somewhere).
As the anime era I think 1980 - 2000. Most of the series I love are from those, Macross, Hokuto no Ken, Gundam (my first being Wing like most westerners), GaoGaiGar (one of the best voice actor). From then I started to watch all the mecha anime I could find (real and super robot). I continue to search and watch older series. I watched other shows too but as far as I can remember I always hated slice of life anime: most didn't have something I searched either history, creativity or character development.
Other shows I hold deeply in my heart: Vandread (first one to nicely mix 3D with anime), Fate Stay Night, Kanon (both version), Air, Clannad, Kannazuki no Miko, Yami to boushi to hon no tabibito, Utawarerumono, To Heart, Nanoha, and more...
Well you can check all my watched list here: http://bit.ly/16DcXpz
Jing from King of Bandit Jing. One of the first anime to hook me on the manga.
Best two Macross series (event though Macross+ is OAV series)
Macross+ for the fight scene
Macross 7 for the music
SEED Destiny doesn't exist.
Jeanne from Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne.
Believe it or not but she is the reincarnation of Joanne of Arc
Yurika from Martian Successor Nadesico and Mikoto from GaoGaiGar
Betterman, one great show in the same universe as GaoGaiGar (some side characters are the same)
Uchu Senkan Yamato
Allenby from G Gundam
Super Nana in France
(and one of the worst choices of words for an opening in France)
GiGi in France
Magical Princess Minky Momo in Japan
This movie will be a must see.
I'm interested with the reactions of the mecha fans and/or authors in Japan about it.
The Destroid Tomahawk always reminded me of the Warhammer in Battletech.
I have still so much to see there.
Need to visit Hiroshima peace memorial, Nagasaki, Ieyasu tomb (north of Tokyo), all the Hokkaido part. And then go to explore a bit more the south of the Chiba prefecture.
I still need to go to Okinawa too...
Already did spring and winter, need to try summer and autumn to see more side of Japan...
