( forgot to proofread, not my native language/ do pardon) A few personal opinions that might help promote the Japans 2020 Olympics : First: The committee with the private sector businesses should take advantage of most of the Japan-theme conventions that are held abroad. Second: The Japan Tourism Agency could implement an agreement with the Japanese airlines that enables some sort of quota for cargo that can benefit the private Japanese businesses. This would enable fast track transportation, of promotional and informational merchandise with low costs. Third: most big conventions are held in big cities therefore have embassies and most of them have connections flights to Japan. This is one way for promoting the Olympics of 2020, and its culture to already fans and newcomers. Another consideration is that most Japanese culture-theme conventions will charge nothing to little to have Cool Japan enterprises participate and be part of the conventions. You can also play it as a package agreement ; encompassing all the agencies into one large booth (just if it works of course). This should enable the agencies to come in contact and promote the Olympics in a direct manner with the people that are already interested in Japans culture and the newbies of this great culture.
Pimped out dress!
sooo... any plans on making these available for purchase? I'd love costumes for them!
I know! Every time there is a new post my wallet is getting thinner and thinner. May be I should pour some water and make it expand a little XD
Danny, you are an asshole to my wallet. I JUST ordered Eiji, but the tan guy due out march is BEAUTIFUL!
I hope my credit card recovers T.T
I want to importing vending machine in nepal from japan, this is possible? If possible please give me some idea

Personal opinion: The committee with the private sector businesses should take advantage of most of the Japan-theme conventions that are held abroad. also the Japan Tourism Agency should have an agreement with the Japanese airlines that enables some sort of quota for cargo and transportation that can be beneficial for the private Japanese businesses. This would enable fast track transportation, of promotional and informational merchandise with low costs. Basically most big conventions are held in big cities therefore have embassies and most of them have connections flights to Japan. This is a great way for promoting the Olympics of 2020, and its culture to already fans and newcomers of this culture. I know it is easy to say than to implement but we must take in consideration that most Japanese culture-theme conventions will charge nothing to little to have them participate and be part of the conventions. You can also sell this as a package agreement encompassing all the agencies into one booth. This should enable the agencies to come in contact and promote the Olympics in a direct manner with the people that are already interested in Japans culture and, the newcomers of this great culture.

I love her. Her skin color is almost similar to mine. I think I will finally Will be able to customize my anime Mexican doll :)

So this is what a Japanese keyboard looks like
AUDIO TECHNICA YES!!!!
Danny, I had messaged you on facebook & weibo for a possible parr-time or intern about the robot smart doll you are building. Did you received it? If eligible, can you reply it?
clean you suit!
it would be nice if you can make her mouth move.its a really good idea to do Danny.
i would want one that speaks and can move it's mouth. it would look more realalistic.
You have the right to bear arms...
I think he surely means that XD
Yay it reminds me wwww
@incineratingart craaap dat watch
If their appetite is anything like some other brand of dolls, this might prove difficult. ^_-
YES! I've been laying away money for her...
Hope you do the long lab coat uniform for her..
So awesome! I hope to see this become a thing! I would definately buy it~ I hope it wasn't (isn't) a joke X3
Hello from Canada!
I am just hoping for an update on the smart doll plus. I have always wanted a robot like this! I've wanted a small one, and I know that others want a larger size and that you are focused on developing that... but at the same time it is hard to tell from the pictures how far you are in your process. I want to have an idea of where you all are in the process, and what the ETA currently is. Thanks!
You have nice way to share your knowledge. Well organized and perfectly arranged thank you.

i was wondering if you have any idea on when the smart doll plus would be finished and if you have any idea on how much one would cost? And Chitose is absolutely beautiful my favorite as of now
It's really amazing idea about your smart doll.
I also noticed that you are trying to make it able to connect with IFTTT.
So I am wondering if you need some way to let the doll able to connect with the IPcamera for liveview.
(I mean with other cameras in the house instead of setting one in the doll's head)
We are TUTK from Taiwan specializing in video transforming platform and IoT connection ways.
The main solution we provide is let iOS/Android able to connect with the devices in house with 3G or Wi-Fi.
Now there's about 3kk devices with our solution in the world (Like スマカメ in Amazon JP)
If you are interested in linking with cameras , please kindly tell me! (email@example.com)
I am looking forward to talk with you in Tokyo!
Driving bus ? I thought you dress as a firefighter !
When kadokawa contents academy come to indonesia, jakarta ?
I already can not wait to learn
I will wait for the arrival Kadokawa Contents Academy hehe :)
Frankly, the only thing that's stopping me from getting a Smart Doll is the price. Where it is made / assembled is no where near my top 10 concerns / priority!
Exactly the kind of food that I needed in a typical lunch. Would be great if this kind of product is available in Singapore!
Please pick up an iPhone and you will see "made in China". Is it cheap? I disagree that "made in china" means "cheap with shoddy workmanship, second rate quality", and so on.
Personally, I don't care where it is from. I care more about quality. Of course, I agree that you should be very careful if you want a branch office in China.
So cute...I want to buy it
Like a bawse~ #TheHijabLife LOL
Please stock up more quantity and styles of hijab, Danny & Co.!!! :3
I've needed her since... yesterday!!! <3

Someone needs to tell him to sing Ichigo Complete from Ichigo Mashimaro. I'd definitely pay money to see that.
Not that great of a singer in my opinion. She never puts much in the way of emotions into the music, so it's really hard liking the music that she puts out. :P
Won't argue that this looks pretty good, but not tasteful enough for public display, and that's a huge factor in my purchase decisions. PASS!
Might not have been on my buy list before, but it sure is now :P
Oh cool, so Kadokawa will be there. Interested in seeing whether anyone grills them about a certain Endless story arc that became the talk of the summer. We will have to see!
Good news indeed, I look forwards to seeing it. Any idea what the plot is going to be or is that some deep dark secret?
Well, this was the site that helped give me the boost and get me the readership that I finally do have so it's great to see that the process is continually evolving!
Hooray! I've been missing it for quite some time. Glad to know it's running and is better than ever before!
The Otaku Revolutionary Army supports these actions for the great motherland of Nippon! BANZAI!!! Remember, if you're not with them, you're a filthy 3D capitalist pig bent on subjugating the moe and exploiting the lolis through this unfair economic system.
I can attest to having such a book and the illustrations are pretty sweet. Really love the graphs and charts and wish I could say more except that I can't really read what the text says.
Well, it certainly looks nice, but Guilty Gear figurines aren't exactly my thing so I'll just give that a pass.
Definitely not getting. It looks decent enough, but it doesn't have quite the eye-opening look of say... the Haruhi Band figurines or even the Saber Lily awesomeness for that matter.
Now that... that's getting up there in terms of ridiculousness. Guess this gives me an incentive to work my ass off until I can get a high(er) paying job to afford all that stuff without feeling guilty.
Oh SWEET! I've been waiting on this one since forever when I preordered it back in January. Glad all the kinks have been worked out and that I can look forward to it arriving at my doorstep really soon!
This might actually encourage me to get one, mostly because I still need to make the jump to the next generation of consoles. Of course, the lack of titles is still an issue since I don't play much beyond RPGs and the online play for fighting games is still not as good as the Xbox, but with a lower price point and better hardware, it might very well be worth it.
Looks like the concerts will definitely be something to look for. Wish I had the time to be able to check it out since anime music is definitely my thing.
Yup, that looks pretty rad all right!
Definitely something to look forwards to, especially if it comes with a price drop because... let's face it, it's just too expensive for me to acquire right now. It'd be even better if the online system were improved somewhat, but that's something that will have to wait I guess.
Isn't there a new show coming out that's based on a character popularly found in Pachinko parlors? I'd like to check it out and see if that's going to be any good.
The Good Smile version wins by a huge amount. The only thing that's annoying though is that it won't come out until August. Guhhh, oh well, it's still worth it though because that thing looks positively awesome. Can't wait to receive it.
Registered readers requirement suggests something having to do with social networking, which would be super since it'll allow all of us to interface better with the entirety of the community at large.
Even if it's not that, I'll be looking forwards to it.
You'd think the people writing these papers would do some actual fieldwork or something :x At least, any self-respecting researcher would do this.
Sounds like a pretty fun event, though I do wonder what the point of an otaku encyclopedia would be since the easy solution to gaining that sort of knowledge is just to keep one's pulse close to the anime community by partaking in watching a variety of shows, discussing it with others, and of course, blog! =)
I'll probably pass on this one given the fact that I've got the Good Smile Saber Lily variant which fulfills my Fate Stay Night quota. Still, it does look pretty good and I can't fault it there.
The good news is that my blog has become a decent platform for my opinions and getting some modicum of recognition has been really awesome. I'm not content to rest on my laurels though since my goal is to drive up recognition of the music side and I hope my side projects will help me reach that endeavor.
For the time being, I'll just be happy with the feedback I'm getting. Most people really seem to like what I do and I hope to be able to deliver a high-quality product consistently.
