    Very cool ^_^ I love seeing the progress of Mirai over these past few years. I just sold out of her figma figures and now seeing that she's not only guest staring in anime but getting her own anime is a wonderful feat. My mascots have been around since 2003 but only recently have I had some progress with their development with fan art made of them and currently a video game in development ^^ Seeing Mirai (and the other girls too) be in the spotlight is always great inspiration for me and the rest of the fan base for our own characters site, etc.. (speaking of sites...I WILL make something of when the funds are there..I promise ^^;;)

    so many of my friends went this year; I'm still land-locked here on Long Island >_< Here's hoping next year I can go to Otakon...and other cons other than NYAF for that matter.

    I can attest to the fact that these games DO sell in the US. Holding back any games, figures or anime from the US market is the main cause of any pirating. Fans want their stuff. Sometimes I want to just hit the licensees over the head with a fan over there sometimes >_<

    She looks so awesome ^^ Why is AAAanime taking so long to get this in stock for the US stores? >_< (I want one for myself too :-/ )

    amazing post Danny. I can say that anime and Japan can contribute to me meeting my fiancee and starting my business. Your blog has for years now help inspire me to improve my site and continue to look forward to a bright and profitable future of being an anime fan...not for the money but for the love of Japanese culture and the fun experiences being with other fans can bring. In due time (I know, been saying this since 2009 ^^;;) I'll be free from my boring day job and be running my anime biz full time. A freedom that only a love for this culture can bring and something I wouldn't have thought possible if it wasn't for you and the rest of the community here. Wish I can be there at AnimeExpo; still stuck in NY, but one day soon.

    I hate seeing anime figures busted >_<...but figures are figures in the end; people being safe is more important. (not gunna deny I was like NOOOOOOO! when I saw this though ;_;)

    I'm up at 4:00am now...I can't sleep because of this. I hope my fiancee's cousins and extended family are ok :-( and everyone else of course. Japan is better at handling earthquakes than we would here in NY but this is insane.
