Did you buy the Smart Doll from us? If not send me mail and I will register you in our system to get the mails.
If you registered then you will already have the link ^o^
Can also fit another head but you need to make the peg bigger with a tube or tape.
Unlikely that we will make smaller sized dolls.
I need to finish the product first and will announce when ready.
Not anytime soon ><
If you already have a Smart Doll then you will be getting the mails to the online store - at the moment it is only open to Smart Doll owners.
lemon flavored drink was my fav last year when I used a Kyoto vending machine!
Not so secret anymore!
So the plastic bottles are like the cat version of a scarecrow?
This is amazing news, however, it may be a good idea to create a basic version of her (no home security, and the like) and allow upgrades during purchase. This is definitely a product I would buy, but not with any hope to use it around the house like an android, more like a collectors item. I hope we'll get more frequent updates from here on out! It would be amazing to see her walk and pick things up! I'm just worried that this may be taking on too much for such a niche market, and that it won't bring enough customers for the sheer price of it!
Somehow I'm getting interested in Mirai, most probably due to the artistic sense, and the drawings :D I'm really keen to know what is this type of art known as ? The drawing done by IKKYUU, where my comment tag on. (The deform style, using diatonic colouring, with thick black line.. is there a name for this type of art?)
I think I'm in Love with this Character....<3
Wow... this looks so hilarious!
I always find it really amazing that while the younger generation is so modern and everything, they also keep their tradition and whatnot.
What a beautiful Culture.
Seeing these pictures reminds me when I was there last year, so beautiful.
BTW, I don't know if you'll read this, Danny-san, but if you're planning on making the clothes for the hijab ver, make sure it isn't too tight fit.
They are really beautiful.
The lifeblood of your company.
she needs a smaller bust mould i presume.
Is Mirai-chan is trying to tell you something? ...that nothing but a palace will do?! ><
I've been to the Kanamara Matsuri/Fertility Festival
Soo... senpai got noticed? lol.
So, if workload got too stressful, one only needs to jump from here.
This is what I'm talking about.
I... I don't get it. Dell's not good enough to make a display port cable that's... easier to use than third party products?
That seems like an... unneeded hassle. Why not get a computer/ laptop that has the more appropriate monitor for your work?
It's good problem to have.
Where is I can buy extra busts and hands for Smart Doll?
I can not find on the site.
Love the app^_^
Also, that 3D render of a space ship - I remember it. Some years ago you wrote that the tunnel vortex took you a month to figure out how to do it. And it was by creating some sort of a tunnel frame and then mapping a sprite or something. :D
"Change is easy only if you are not afraid or feel it bothersome"
I'm one of the people who don't like changes because everything new and unknown could pose a threat to my "safe and comfortable world". But it's a fairly limited world, I must say. I'm trying from time to time to change this, get things moving.
Thanks for reposting motivational posts from previous articles. It's certainly useful to be reminded of your valuable thoughts. :)
And I think it's time for me to find an answer to the question - "What do I want to do in life?" As years pass, it's becoming more pressing. I think I'm gradually getting closer to the answer. But the sooner the better.
Most of the times when I think about Japan and subway, I remember this problem - the groping AND false accusation groping. Being a molesting pervert terrorizing people is bad but I think false accusations are even worse. I don't know. I would certainly use those white straps.
Also, I must say I'm surprised to discover that those molesters are arranging their actions online.
THE BEST ADVICE FOR MEN -> OCCUPY ALL HANDS! ALL HANDS ON DECK!
Last Saturday I was at a Bunkasai and there was a presentation on Japanese Festivals. And I think they mentioned this one - Kanda Matsuri. There was a video of dancing people - with red and blue kimonos.
Dear Danny Choo,
I am referring to your comment below: 'We also interview the man in charge of everything too. He said off camera that while they are rolling more of these out in Japan, they are looking into taking this technology overseas too.
If you are interested then let me know and I'll hook you up with him!'
I am a student from Germany, currently working on a consulting project for a medium sized German company and identifying potential new business opportunities. One would be to enter the underground bicycle parking system, as we think the company has some core competencies it could apply to this new business area. Also, the underground bicycle parking system is almost not available in Europe yet, although market interest might be there.
Thus, I would really like to know whether you could provide me with some additional information (as to whether plans for going overseas exist) or even provide the contact details of the man in charge?
Thank you in advance and warm regards from Germany!
I took many a photo in Harajuku, all seasons - wonderful place, hope to get back there some time this year.
Thank you Tobias Lu Alastor Phoenix I can't wait to have the two girls at home :-)
Sugoi buy me 10 xD
Cogratz you are a proud future owner of a SmartDoll Sabrina.
If only they could rent some space in the same floor or one floor above/below. Get a different department. Though its easier to manage if you can see and walk to people within the same headquarters.
looking to get another floor in the building so should be easier
You can't hide from me, Rei-chan.
Also, is that a new Evangelion logo down there?
Love Japanese anime and of coz Gundam, have some little collection of GunPla.
Love women and red wine...
Agree with your points.... hope DC can suggest the same to the Japan Anime Industry - and hopefully they will at least open their eye and ears for new perspective to save the industry...
Make good anime (like Lucky Star/K-On/Sengoku Basara/Honey & Clover to name a few) and provide the DVD at a reasonable price in accordance to the current economy situation. For example in several countries within South East Asia, a typical 20 something episode original box set anime dvd would cost about around or within SGD 30.00 (about 2,000 yen), some are slightly cheaper, maybe around SGD 20.00 (1,300 yen). A typical 50 episodes of Gundam anime can reach up to or around SGD 50.00 (3,300 yen).
I personally feel that price is quite fair, but maybe to some other people within this region, that can still be expensive, then again, the price in Japan is extremely ridiculous.
Blu-Ray DVD? I don't know coz I don't have the Blu-Ray DVD Player and from what I gathered, the Blu-Ray DVD titles can be expensive.
USD 200 for anime Blu-Ray DVD? forget it, I simply can't afford it and many others South East Asian households might share the same view as me.
The reason why piracy can strive is simply because of price factor. Why don't the Japanese and in fact even those Hollywood company think about lowering the price instead of try to impose the "blood sucking" price on consumers.
With such statement, it's not that I love and support piracy and unauthorized distribution thru internet and all those uploading and downloading stuff, but my point is, we can help to "curb" piracy and these illegal downloads by encouraging people to buy the original products with affordable price.
The anime company or the distributor can go for maximum volume with lower price rather than aiming for premium price coz this is also one of the factor that caused the DVD stock not moving from the shop shelves and at the same time the internet and illegal DVD copy appear from where ever and further ruining the business module.
I don't do downloading of anime from internet but many of my friends did it. I do buy pirated anime DVD from somewhere for the sake of evaluating the anime/story - if it's good, I will buy the original for sure - usually the original box set will arrive a bit later, but that is OK for me.
So, the bottom line is the price.... I know the anime company/studio/producer/distributor do not like to lower the price, but if you really want to sell fast and "reduce" piracy stuff, I guess that is the only way.
Not everybody earn USD 10,000 per week or per month and live in luxury and able to buy all those branded products - certainly not after 2008 global economic crisis. Japanese anime industry should open their eyes and consider this factor rather than keep talking about pride and status and maximum profit and live in "anime illusion" where everything will be OK.
Danny, tell those Japanese producers, the quality level of anime nowadays seems to be sucks and not like what it used to be...
Sure the graphics and character design is getting better for some.... but the plot or the story line is rather crappy..... too much "moe moe and fans service stuff"...
Out of many new anime released, only a few that I consider worth to buy their DVD....
No offense... we want great stuff not popular but lousy stuff...
Danny, I like the additional video screen shot u provide here... brilliant idea...
The Tudors and The Windsors.... LOL

Panasonic ROCK!!!!!!! - owner of Panasonic LX3 and Fujifilm HS10....
It's normal and acceptable to lie to your spouse about your adultery with others... but lie to yourself is not good and will make you crazy...LOL
Cool - and she is using Panasonic camera.... LOL.. awesome advertisement stuff
Danny Choo, being a reader of DC for several years now, I can understand a little bit about your history and your dad, from Malaysia to England and then split to Malaysia and Japan..... nonetheless, family reunion is always wonderful... hope you and your father (and the rest of your family members) will have more happy times together as a family.... all the best....
Yup, interesting point of view.....
Panasonic collaborate with Leica and seems to be doing well nowadays with many of their camera models become very popular and well received in the consumer market. I didn't say Sony is terrible it's just I don't fancy them, after using several camera with different models and brands, I would say Panasonic and Canon is my firm favorite. Just a personal taste when it comes to camera.
Don't mean to take away that Sony and Kodak and Casio as the pioneer of digicam...
Panasonic and Olympus start the new format of Micro 4/3 mirror-less compact camera promising DSLR like image quality - they are the first, but now, Sony have this much better and more powerful new beast "The NEX-5" - many reviews in the net said that this camera is damn good and as you said they're all now neck and neck... couldn't agree more....
Its a Sony.... if it's home entertainment system, I would like it... if it's camera, I don't really fancy Sony but from what I read in the internet, this NEX-5 is one hell of a great camera - probably the best from Sony so far.... Canon and Panasonic are still my firm favorite though I end up using Fujifilm HS10 now...
Event if I want to joint this giveaway - and in case if I win - I wont be able to receive this item... the problem is the Custom Department in our country have such a strict rules for naked/semi-naked figurines... so in this case, they wil confiscate this figure as it is labeled as "illegal item that content nudity/pornography elements".... sigh....
By the way I don't do any of this martial arts thingy... I have low stamina due to watching too much Japanese Adult Videos.... LOL....
I think she can be pretty good and strong on bed as well.... hehehehehehe... (hentai mode)...
I bought primarily from HLJ and AmiAmi and sometimes Hobby Search.
HLJ sales at FULL PRICE but their packaging/boxing is extremely excellent. You will have economical shipping charges.
AmiAmi, always offer DISCOUNTS on their price... but the shipping charges will kill you... they use a big box that can fit 3 units of large Gunpla 1/100 MG kits when you just bought a mere 2 units of Figma or Revoltech? Imagine if you order more stuff... the shipping charges will dilute all the discounts they gave you as they use big box unnecessarily - oh, they put lots of papers on the side of the box to "protect" your items.....
I think both online shop are equally good but my favorite is HLJ for sure while AmiAmi is my 2nd choice... but I wont buy many stuff in 1 shipment if its from AmiAmi....
Danny, since you said Figma Seto Sun is the closest to Figma Mirai, I would suggest that the seiyu for the Mirai-chans first game appearance is Haruka Momoi, the seiyu of Seto Sun.
Haruka Momoi is a talented seiyu, singer and song writer, maybe she can create some great them songs for Mirai chan and the rest as well.....
When I first watch a Japanese porn movie at the age of 7 I think - yes, 7 years old... my interest towards Japanese gals ignited.... from there onwards, I discover TV anime and many other anime - lot's of anime (including hentai)... and from there come the GunPla, Japanese foods, Figma and what ever... my admiration of Japanese Adult Video never seems to disappear though... from VHS video tape in the 80's to the DVD format now.... I still love them all... hahahahahahahahaha.....
The only "classic toys" I still have is the Star Wars figures from 1997 by Kenners - still in packaging in mint condition.....
Nice article..... I would love to visit this place if I have the chance to visit Japan next time... I now use superzoom digicam Fujifilm HS10 and I can zoom from 24mm to 720mm with the ens of that camera, it cannot match DSLR quality but I'm quite happy with it.
As Christian, I always thankful when ever I have the chance to still wake up in the morning - what ever day it is, it's good to be alive - be it Monday or Sunday... it's good to be alive... though I personally don't mind to be a vampire and leave forever like those characters in Underworld movie....
He got Dendrobium among other things... he is rich...
Yum yum.... mini skirts and legs... love to see them... kind of "TURN ON" my system... hehehehe
