Emceeing for AFA15

Brace yourselves, Anime Festival Asia 2015 is coming in a few days!!! More guests are being announced even during these last minutes…

Meanwhile, I’m still packing for the trip. Probably will be in silent mode for the remainder of the week until the end of the event…


Guest Host: Danny Choo


Born in the UK to Chinese Malaysian parents and currently residing in Tokyo for about 16 years, Danny Choo is the creator of a brand called Culture Japan which shares Japanese culture through in-house produced TV Shows, Character Content and a Fashion Doll known as Smart Doll.

Danny also writes about life in Japan as a foreigner on his blog and has been doing so regularly since 2004.


Danny directs and presents on the TV shows Culture Japan and Japan Mode which are broadcast weekly on TV channels domestic in Japan and internationally.

Danny is also the creator of Mirai Suenaga (pronounced “mee-rai soo-eh-na -gah”) – the mascot character for Culture Japan who has collaborated with various anime and game companies such as Square Enix, Good Smile Company, Bushiroad, Ascii Media Works, King Records and Nitroplus. In 2013, Mirai became an official mascot for Japan Tourism and in 2014 she became an official mascot for Malaysia Tourism.

Danny has been recognised for his work by the Japanese government who have appointed him as a member on various high level committees which focus on strategies to disseminate Japanese content outside of Japan.

Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka?

From this spring, Cocoa has come to this new town to attend high school.

While lost in the streets, she came across the cafe “Rabbit House”, which also happens to be the cafe she is supposed to be staying at.

With the all-round cuteness emerging from the small and cool Chino, the military tempered Rize, the easygoing Japanese-styled Chiya, and the overflowing elegance of the masses in Syaro, together with Chino’s classmates Maya and Megu, as well as the addition of regular customer, the author Aoyama Blue Mountain, Rabbit House is filled with cuteness today as well!
