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.
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 :)

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.

Isn't she a cutie

Who she is and what anime series?
I'm just another otaku who is passionate about anime and Nendoroids. ^^
I think the recording is done for the game, not the anime.
Mirai is ready to take off ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
Hopefully it will be the best AFA to date. XD
Looking forward to see Mirai joins Popura and co. in the 3rd season of WORKING!! anime. XD
Thank you! XD
AFAMY 2012 was also a great success, so congratulations to you too! :D
I am looking forward to the better and more epic AFAID 2013. :)
Thank you for visiting Nendonesia booth, Danny! XD
That's me! XD
I am really glaad that our community booth has attracted your interest, Danny! :D
Was planning to show you the airplane, Danny, but it seems that it would take too much of your time. Well ... maybe next time. xD
Love the illustration! XD
I wonder how Mirai would look like if she wears the yukata. XD
Attended, but could not stay until the end. Anyway, Culture Japan Night Jakarta Summer 2012 was really awesome.
Anyway, looking forward to Culture Japan Night WINTER 2012. XD
Just curious: Is it okay if I pre-order from local sellers? It's an online retailer though, so I also get a pre-order confirmation receipt from the store. XD
Danny-san: "Wait, there's a tiny dust on her ahoge."
This easily becomes one of the greatest news I've had for this year so far.
Thank you and see you at #AFAINDO, Danny-san. XD
Nendoroid Asakura Otome! ~(^_^~)

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Charlie, a freelance web programmer from Indonesia. I have been an anime otaku since junior high school - that is about 10 years ago. Yes, anime, manga, J-Drama, and J-Pop has been part of my lifestyle for about a decade now.
"Going to Japan". That simple 3-words phrase has been placed on top of my "someday" wishlist for years. As an otaku, paying a visit to Japan - especially Akihabara - is like a "pilgrimage", a mission of life. For that sake, I have been saving up my income as well as watching the international broadcast of NHK channel to learn more about Japanese culture.
Since about a year ago, I have setup a blog (Nendonesia.com) to cover about Nendoroid, since I have been taking interest on the adorable figures. I have posted articles regarding various figure-related events that took place in Japan like Wonder Festival and Dengeki FES - virtually everything that is related to Nendoroid. Although I have never attended such event myself (the articles I posted were based on reports from Japanese sites/blogs), I always want to pay a visit there. That is why I would prefer July (preferably during Summer Wonder Festival event) as the date of travel to Japan.
Recently, A reader of Nendonesia sent me a suggestion to create a series of articles about Travelling. The idea is to have Nendoroid as the "tour guide", explaining/showing interesting places around the world. What an awesome idea it is! However, I was still thinking about how I could execute the idea, and that is when I stumbled across this post (Free Tickets to Japan). I think this is a good idea to get started on the idea.
So if I were given this opportunity, I will bring along Nendoroid that represents the Japanese culture, such as Hakurei Reimu for shrine-related places, Hatsune Miku for Vocaloid-related culture, Gumako for figure-related stuff - visiting Good Smile Cafe is also one of my destination there. Obviously, I will also take a lot of photos there and post them on Nendonesia later on as "Nendoroid`s Travel Log" project.
Whether I am eligible for this project or not, I would like to say thank you for posting this announcement, Danny.
There's a typo in the "Vote" section. It should be "BRS Nendoroid" instead of "BRD Nendoroid". ^^ BTW I've already pre-ordered the Nendo.
N-n-nendoroids invasion! Ah ... so that's how Nendoron-san looks like ...
Thanks for the report, Danny! Looking forward to your next events.
