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?"
各位SMART DOLL主人，不放看看這篇新的歡迎指南，以更了解您的SMART DOLL https://t.co/1XY0tIngE7 https://t.co/3SHEHiIXa5
i haven't studied or kept up with my japanese since i took a break from my blog so it'd been awhile now and i'm sure now it's all gone down the toilet :(
need to pick it back up though so i can eventually take this someday.
lol at the cat's face when we see it for the first time.
I want to own a cat someday. Oh how I love them so. Dogs are also adorable though.
wow 12 years! that's indeed love of drawing.
It's been probably about 12 years or a little longer since I first started drawing myself, but I've been on and off for such huge periods of time that I probably only have about a year or little over a year of drawing experience under my belt. That is to say, my drawing still sucks lol.
Her level of skill is really something to aspire for though, especially after seeing her improve and improve so much to what she can do today. I love her current style! punipuni de kawaii!
I like the geass bunny pic :P Fantastic work!
I need to start practicing drawing again....I never did get very far with it but at least before I could draw some semblance of a face about 4 out of 10 times...now it's about 1 out of 10 -_-
theys look cute!
despite being cloudy, i still find the scenery to be quite beautiful!
Would love to go visit there someday... I work in an annoyingly noisy environment and tend to find myself preferring quiet solitude most of the time, and this seems like the perfect place to get away... Too bad this place is halfway across the world from me :(
I'd love to play Uncharted 2 on that baby after class haha
whoooa that's gonna look freakin badass lol
can't wait to check it out!
Looks like a beautiful place! Would love to visit there someday. A couple of my friends have been to Hokkaido and had a great time. Raaaaamennn!!!
:D <- SAFS go here
very cool beans
for those that are confused by what mr. seija is talking about, "Hayashibara Megumi's favorite american anime is 'Peanuts'." And for further clarification (as if it really needs one), Hayashibara Megumi is a well celebrated voice actress for japanese anime and she has many fans, including me.
anime is the shortened version of animation in japanese pronunciation after all, but i think with such a difference in style and substance, people tend to differentiate "anime" from "cartoons" (I do a little bit too, to be honest). To me this is still considered anime, since not only is it being created by japanese studios, it definitely has a distict "japanese anime" type of style and substance -- something that american cartoon versions of these characters don't quite have.
that reimagining of Wolverine looks kinda weird lol. The wolverine I know is a gruff, gritty canadian, not tall, cool, and handsome with host like hair. I guess this is the very definition of reimagining haha
I think they should make a figure of Mio from the end credits where she's embracing her guitar
Never seen a total solar, but did spot a lunar eclipse a little while back I think. Tried to take some pictures of it but I didn't know how to set my camera right that time so they all come out as blotches of light lol
looks great...it's like a really cool penthouse
i remember the very first time i went to japan with my family when I was a little kid we also got a couple of these lol. Then back in the states, I took it to school one rainy day and just stared up at the sky watching the rain droplets hit the cover... it was kinda mesmerizing lol. Also a little weird cuz I kept flinching like I was afraid the drops were gonna pass right through the umbrella and hit my eye.
Two things I like about the figure:
1) boob squish
2) the view from behind...she's got some nice legs and a cute little toosh :O
especially on that limited one lol
I didn't have G4 back when this aired, but now I do, so maybe I'll be able to catch bits of this segment when Attack of the Show has their 1000th episode special coming up July 9 :P
oh my lordy $3000 lol
was the seat at least super comfy like i thought it looked?
grats to the winnar!
could this possibly be kimchi fermented in.....something other than chili paste?
at least the girl is cute, so that warrants a try at least? lol
hmmmm....i hope dollfie torsos count :P
I think I know what store this is from, but it's hard to gauge the price...
I think I'm probably underestimating by a lot, but how about
in any case...dude those chairs look super comfy...where can i get one of those in the states? My best guess would probably be Ikea lol
yay i can load up the redirected page lol
hmm...i still have no idea what it is, but I'm gonna guess some dollfie parts too. My first thought when I saw the big curl at the end of the package was some hair, but I didn't think just hair would come in such a big box -_- Then I was thinking maybe it was some figma or nendoroid since the box looks about the right size, but I can't shake that curly thing. I'll go with a new dollfie torso too lol.
