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 :)
Mavis Vermillion - Fairy Tail
anti aircraft gun cut-in!!!

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
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
Who she is and what anime series?
Danny, I think you've made a slight mistake in your link to Akibahobby. It should be .net instead of .com.
I wonder if those FMP figurines are action figurines. They appear so, with the movable-looking joints like those similar to Figma and Revoltech.
I think half the fun of collecting figurines is having to clean them.
Good things always have to come to an end.
Currently, one of my goals is to get a decent job in Japan after I graduate from University. It'll be even better if I can actually get into a Japanese University, but getting into one that's good isn't an easy feat >_<
Still, I'll try working towards it, starting by leveling up my Japanese, as well as equipping myself with relevant skills.
This feels more of like a figurine shop rather than a room.
Mirai and Kako, sounds great. Now all you need is another brother/sister named Ima.
Wow Japan's Macdonalds' pay is really high compared to Singapore's Macdonalds' starting pay.
Compared to 850 yen, the pay here is about S$3, which is about 250 yen. A total ripoff, but people still work for them 0.0
I never got the chance to go-kart, simply because I was always below the height requirements when I went to amusement parks in years back. Now that I'm above the height requirement, I don't go to amusement parks anymore.
Looks like I won't be trying go-karting for some time.
Stormtrooper amour with brushes sticking out of the helmet. That could be the next fashionable hit!!!
If such things such as fortune telling are really true, they why won't the fortune teller predict stuff like stocks and the lottery. That way, he doesn't need to be a poor roadside fortune teller anymore.
Danny, you sure must be one happy Stormtrooper, especially with 2 hawt girls dancing together with you.
Wow Danny, your life sure is hectic. I'm a person who requires at least 6 hours of sleep to function properly, and even 6 hours is often now sufficient. And here you are, sleeping literally a couple of hours.
You should sleep more =] I know your work is your passion, but constantly overworking your body isn't a good thing.
The dolls are rather freaky ~.~ Imagine waking up in the middle of the night just to see a few of these staring straight at you.
Devil May Cry 4 isn't released in Singapore until next week >_>
Some many awesome care products!!! Too bad I still have more than half a year to go before the shops would allow me to legally purchase all those goodies >_
That wanted man must have had the evasion skills of a ninja. Either that, or the police really suck LOL
Singapore's Internet connection sucks. Everything is capped...
I'm surprised no one stole it.
I like the dashboard of your car. Too bad I can't drive, yet.
Hey Danny, hope you had a great 2007 and an even enjoyable 2008 ^^ And may dannychoo.com flourish to greater heights.
I buy CDs only if I really like the artiste and feel that he/she/they deserve my support.
As usual, great photos.
Nice, you just made me desire for a Fauna figurine =X
I guess this is why school kids in Japan never get to fully enjoy figurines, games and DVDs.
No teacher has ever laid a hand on me before. Maybe it's because I'm lucky.
And yeah, Singapore has caning as a punishment for students, but it is no longer public caning.
