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
she needs a smaller bust mould i presume.
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!
Are there plans for 2nd grade kanji?
first n last wish to see japan in my life
which places r most famous nd easy to see in japan. is that possible for me to visit japan in a one weeks. if not then which place i choose first to visit here . nd most important thing is i m a anime lover. pls help
Cute! Also, I hope you'll go to Anime Expo!
An onigiri at my AEON supermarket in Malaysia costs RM3 (equivalent to USD0.85). How much does it cost in Japan?
CHitose! Awesome, i was wondering when she'll appear. Although i believe she will need a completely different smartdoll body?
Found out about Mirai's Chitose from here...
Nice! This is the ideal body physique for me, oh and also white hair! This'll be my choice of all the chars of Mirai Suenaga :D
I appreciate that drawing girls should start from being naked, but that'll just shiver my hand if I'm ever going to draw girls xD
Can she plzzzzzz be made into a smart doll? I would buy like 500 of those...
sigh i want to tag Vickie Chen for this
Oh I'm so looking forward to moving to Japan! Question for anyone reading, do you know where I could find a directory of Kyudo dojos in or near Tokyo? When I look it up no listings are shown...
I would get so nervous drawing with that method is high school!!
suddenly chitose is 1000000x more attractive
she is beautiful O.o
So cute! I imagine she would need a smaller head and body (little sister style). I can't wait to see her :)
i agree wih you. The artist is the person who can sacrifice for the art :v so you don't need to give a $h!+ what they think or say :3
Ah... That explains everything...
So what about someone who kept saying my original character is my "imaginary girlfriend" when I told them I'm just making an "original character"? Or how about someone who calls a person who draws manga a "Hentai artist who should stay away from children"?
I can't wait!!.... :)
I want Chitose! <3 Keep up the good work!
For a moment there, I though this was a Chitose dakimakura design. (Please?)
Jokes aside, Chitose is the only Smart Doll I'm looking forward to. Maybe Eiji as well.
Excellent! She's my fav'... (y)
yes i agree, im practically preaching! - i get told that im perverse so much, all because i like to draw girls, or that i drew a female nude.....
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.
They're the actual pervs for being unable to NOT sexualize a nude body! Pathetic.
It was time that was a smart Doll Chitose Chirasawa :D
Chitose my favorite
looks like I found my new favorite
Joshua goodbye money.
put down pencil...cry a side

Well looks like it's time to save up and buy my first smart doll, chitose is life
^ right in the kokoro
NEED her as a Smart Doll!
Yep... Better to start with nude basic when drawing characters. That way, you can tell where to place the cloth lines around the joint fold areas or some part on the body.
I don't know why people kept criticising me for that. They kept saying that my excuse for drawing "nude basic" is because I'm "a pervert". They just don't understand the basic of drawing anatomy. Or maybe because they don't think nude drawing is considered art... Bull $H!+!!!
why not both
C'mon I want Chitose SmartDoll
No no no, SMARTDOLL!
need Chitose FIGMA
Need. Chitose. SmartDoll...
She's so cute!
I'm obsessed with discrete mathematics, quantum physics, quantitative finance, and anime.
Well, from my experience, we really need more of all 3 of those positions lol :D my high school's science/math teacher retention rate was like 2 yrs max. D: there was more funding for English and history stuff in Utah at least......... >.>;;;
That is amazing. :D
Do the endorsements mean you can teach both subjects? :)
Nice! What are you studying?
I graduated already but am still in the area hehe. Can't believe how fast time flies..
wat you're in CO now? i'm in MA... D:
Aw Danny. :3 I just wanted to say congratulations on everything you've done. Hiring employees is no small deal, and it could take startups years before having the capacity to expand. Your brand and business have grown enormously since the first time I stepped foot into your blog. I was an angry middle school kid back then lol. I'm working on a startup now, but in a very different field - a lot of it was due to your advice - to pursue something you enjoy, to go for the things that distract you. The boring stereotypical corporate life is a nightmare and needs a massive makeover - 120 hours per week, 7 days a week, 0 work life balance. Being a kaishain in finance in Tokyo was a huge eye-opener, and I'm thankful to be out of there lol. I doubt you'll see this but have a wonderful summer and best of luck with the recruitment process!! May the best applicant(s) win!
there's like.. men wearing yukata with blonde hair selling death metal-type clothing with jazz music in the background in this building :D
my eye doctor is somewhere down yonder :D
waa character pants? yee!
Thank you so much for this post, Danny! ^^
I'm going to Japan next week for a summer internship and will definitely check out your guides and recommendations to get the most out of living in Japan. I'm really excited because my work is in Chiyoda-ku, close to Akihabara! So excited and nervous. Yeeee.
I haven't graduated from college yet but am working in Japan in a month. If you have the skills, they'll still somehow hire you. Some companies help out with the visa process. In addition, if you're currently in school but haven't graduated yet, the school can help you obtain your visa as well.
I have a lot of issues with Cool Japan, not gonna lie. But soft power is what it is. Part of the reason I care and want to work in Japan is so that I can help women have more of an academic/technological/entrepreneurship role in the industry.
Yay no more bugs in my face! Aha...
Glad to hear you're doing well Danny. :)
On another note, the Japanese I class at my school, which is "easy"（ハーバードに比べるMITの言語/人文科学の授業は優しいかもしれない）, had us memorize all katakana and hiragana in two days. 日本語１を取った時、早く覚えなくちゃ行けないから、とても大変だった。
I agree with you! But!
But i think that's kind of what they're aiming for.. something crazy, something to spark controversy and that "Wtf just happened" type of reaction. I mean, it's another boring mainstream car - and what better way to cry for attention than a high pitched screaming virtual idol coming out of a car singing 世界で一番の姫様 ...
Risky marketing strategy but it makes sense.

So legit, Chun. :)
My car is shittastic but at least it has eyelashes. :)
A lot of those snacks are pretty healthy though, if not in smaller proportions.. :)
Idk why but all of the Japanese people i've hosted dislike sweets.. they've grown up with healthy snacks rather than, say, the double chocolate Milanos i'm eating right now at 3AM which are ~100 calories/cookie. FML
