lemon flavored drink was my fav last year when I used a Kyoto vending machine!
Not so secret anymore!
So the plastic bottles are like the cat version of a scarecrow?
This is amazing news, however, it may be a good idea to create a basic version of her (no home security, and the like) and allow upgrades during purchase. This is definitely a product I would buy, but not with any hope to use it around the house like an android, more like a collectors item. I hope we'll get more frequent updates from here on out! It would be amazing to see her walk and pick things up! I'm just worried that this may be taking on too much for such a niche market, and that it won't bring enough customers for the sheer price of it!
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
Wow... this looks so hilarious!
I always find it really amazing that while the younger generation is so modern and everything, they also keep their tradition and whatnot.
What a beautiful Culture.
Seeing these pictures reminds me when I was there last year, so beautiful.
BTW, I don't know if you'll read this, Danny-san, but if you're planning on making the clothes for the hijab ver, make sure it isn't too tight fit.
They are really beautiful.
The lifeblood of your company.
she needs a smaller bust mould i presume.
Is Mirai-chan is trying to tell you something? ...that nothing but a palace will do?! ><
I've been to the Kanamara Matsuri/Fertility Festival
Soo... senpai got noticed? lol.
So, if workload got too stressful, one only needs to jump from here.
This is what I'm talking about.
I... I don't get it. Dell's not good enough to make a display port cable that's... easier to use than third party products?
That seems like an... unneeded hassle. Why not get a computer/ laptop that has the more appropriate monitor for your work?
It's good problem to have.
Where is I can buy extra busts and hands for Smart Doll?
I can not find on the site.
Also, that 3D render of a space ship - I remember it. Some years ago you wrote that the tunnel vortex took you a month to figure out how to do it. And it was by creating some sort of a tunnel frame and then mapping a sprite or something. :D
"Change is easy only if you are not afraid or feel it bothersome"
I'm one of the people who don't like changes because everything new and unknown could pose a threat to my "safe and comfortable world". But it's a fairly limited world, I must say. I'm trying from time to time to change this, get things moving.
Thanks for reposting motivational posts from previous articles. It's certainly useful to be reminded of your valuable thoughts. :)
And I think it's time for me to find an answer to the question - "What do I want to do in life?" As years pass, it's becoming more pressing. I think I'm gradually getting closer to the answer. But the sooner the better.
Last Saturday I was at a Bunkasai and there was a presentation on Japanese Festivals. And I think they mentioned this one - Kanda Matsuri. There was a video of dancing people - with red and blue kimonos.
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!
I took many a photo in Harajuku, all seasons - wonderful place, hope to get back there some time this year.
Thank you Tobias Lu Alastor Phoenix I can't wait to have the two girls at home :-)
Sugoi buy me 10 xD
Cogratz you are a proud future owner of a SmartDoll Sabrina.
If only they could rent some space in the same floor or one floor above/below. Get a different department. Though its easier to manage if you can see and walk to people within the same headquarters.
looking to get another floor in the building so should be easier
You can't hide from me, Rei-chan.
Also, is that a new Evangelion logo down there?
Are there plans for 2nd grade kanji?
I hope that the revenue growth also match with company growth.
Way to grow! That is amazing.
There's always room for "aggressive expansion".....as the Joker would put it.
Ese uniforme me dncanta
Thanks for your answer. So I must wait round about 6 weeks, before I can order some clothes, because it was only possible to made a reservation for the dolls, and now I am on a waiting list.
A great if frustrating problem to have. Do you think your success will make it easier to find new space than last time?
I think this is a good thing, is this a good thing? It's great to see that it's growing. Also it reminds me of that, "goldfish growing to fit the size of the tank" saying.
just wait for the e-mail, then you can order your smart dolls and accessories
Time to add a third shift.
Well that filled up quick.
I love japan and its culture, my dream is living in japan with the latest figures/anime/manga/technology someday ^^..
Done~ Wish the images were a bit larger, I wanted to close in Mirai's kawaii face xD
Congrats! Kids are such a blessing. I'm too young to having them though, I will wait until I graduate college, marry and have a stable job ^^:;;
It hasn't been long since the start of spring and there is much to do already! Good luck. Very benry (play word lol), useful the google calendar link, maybe that way I won't forget to tune in~
This figure is godly xD lol
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'll post my answers in a bit x3
I don't know how much I'll be able to help since I'm planning in going back to college next year but in the meantime I have some time to available so I'll shoot you an email ^^
Wow just read this and its amazing the number of responses, I'm happy that many people would love the opportunity to travel to Japan and share their experience!
Of course I'm included in the group, I owe a lot of my being due to Japanese Culture, so I would love the chance to see with my own eyes the land of the rising sun.
As a student the best time to go for me would me in the months of Jun-Oct, and I've have the financial help to pay my way around as I would love to travel through Japan like Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo. Maybe I could go together with my big brother that lives in Canada since he is as interested in me in visiting Japan.
As I said when I personally met Danny Choo in AX'11, Japanese culture and he, himself, have shaped the person I am today, so I would love the opportunity to be just as them to other people, share my passion for Japan in the web to others with the same passion. Sorry for the long response, and thanks for the opportunity that is going to be given to the people.
Since I was the last winner of a figure (Yui figure), I'll solely answer with the motive of stating how I got into DC. Back in 2008-9, I remember watching a section in G4's Attack of the Show related to Dancing StormTrooper and a brief introduction to Danny. I remember that made me visit the site and got hooked up with it.
My top pick for best ED goes to Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann The Movie Lagann-hen ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LW3DyRlWLc Simple yet beautiful animation, plus great song.
Can't seem to think an OP right now but for me the thing that has the most effect in an OP is the song. I may not be able to remember the OP itself but if I hear the song anywhere it will make me remember about the anime, and if I don't remember it will make me wanna remember it! So not only do you need a visual striking OP but a song that fits the theme of the series.
It seems like I was X3
First time I've seen my hand had this much commanding power, lol XD
We did a good job poster patrol!
Pipo in the background X3
To be honest I can't really remember where I was ^^:;;
Sorry for the delay, I got busy during the days of AX ^^;;; yeah maybe email would be better. What's your email address?
I'm visiting some family for two weeks.
that's the thing I'm not really sure what I'm looking for since I come from a small town. Anything Japanese related is an obvious choice, but anything else you could recommend would be greatly appreciated it ^^.
I was about to post something similar to this, since is my first time in LA i was also looking for some recommendations XD
I absolutely loved Donkey Kong as a kid. Remember playing it in the SNES and then in the GB and GBA X3
Black rock Shooter the animation ver.
Very interesting, didn't thought I would see an anime where Mirai would be the main protagonist so soon. ^^
not sure if it is just me but below the 2nd pic, in the second paragraph you might have misspelled 'learnings' for 'leanings'.
I used to draw anime/manga girls as a hobby but stopped as of late, iphone developing learning took priority. Still I will continue doing some illustrations since it will help me draw the icons for the apps that I will develop. After I get the hand of developing, I hope to continue drawing kawaii girls ^^
