    Thanks Danny, I like your “workaday” approach. I also like that you kept things moving.

  8. MisterEd says:

    Thanks for your posts. I’m pretty well acquainted with Anime/Manga culture, but your posts highlighted how that culture intersects with “The Real World.” Often left me shaking my head, and not always at the otaku.

    Domo arigato gozaimashita, Danny– I really enjoyed reading all your posts here on BoingBoing. I can wait for my trip to Japan in May so that I can see some of that marvellousness myself firsthand!

    What a treat to see your entries, and it was particularly delightful to have you posting so much on the weekends, when boingboing doesn’t usually change much! Y’all come back, y’hear?

    Nicely done mate, plenty of quality and quantity! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an Itasha to go build.

  28. echonomist says:

    Farewell, D.C; your tenure at boingboing was brief but exceedingly pleasant.

    We love you Danny!

    Great posts, Danny. Keep on dancing!

  31. Tomas says:

    I enjoyed and learned from your posts here at Boing Boing more than I have learned from any of the other guests.

    Thank you very much for making it interesting, and I really am sad to see you moving on from Boing Boing. I would love to see you as a regular here.

    Take care!

  32. tsuli says:

    Hi Danny, have signed up just so I can say how much I’ve enjoyed your posts! Will be following your site from now on :)

  33. Francesco Fondi says:

    Otsukare!! Danny!!!
    I loved your akiba culture posts mixed with boingboing posts!

    The criticism to your posts made me realize that:

    the “New Edge” is Akiba and (post)otaku culture like San Francisco was 15 years ago with the Cyberpunk…

  34. Tenn says:

    Domo arigatou, Danny. I’ll miss you, but I guess that means I need to add your feed to my RSS reader.

    You were definitely the most interesting guest blogger we’ve had.

  35. Daemon says:

    I actually started following your blog shortly before you showed up here, but I have to say – if there’s one thing you’ve taught me about Japan… it’s that I need a stormtrooper outfit.

  36. smgrady says:

    I actually started following your blog shortly after you showed up here. Thank you BB for exposing me to so much fun. Thank you Danny! If I’m ever in Tokyo, sushi’s on me.

  37. kiltreiser says:

    Please drop by again, really loved your posts! They’ve renewed my urge to visit Japan so I’ll know to blame you once my wallet’s empty :-)

    Really excellent guest gig – horizon expanding in multiple dimensions. Continue being bold and audacious – thanks!

    Best guest blogger so far – do hope to read you here again.

    [quote]The biggest thanks goes out to BB readers for putting up with my ramblings for the past two weeks – hope I have not done too much damage ;-)[/quote]

    On the contrary – you’ve instilled in me my very own fascination with Japanese culture. That, coupled with having recently seen a show on TV where the presenters raced across Japan (cue much vast camera shots of gorgeous country and epic cityscapes) I’ve decided I’m going to visit. As a 2nd year student in Britain, I’d better start saving now, then!

    Many thanks for the wonderful insights!

    Gods, Danny is so positive and full of energy that it makes me grumpy.

    Doesn’t he know that life sucks and we are hurtling toward certain death because progress is an inevitable trap we willingly walk into?

    Ah well. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Best Guest Blogger Evar.

    Enjoyed your stuff a lot Danny.

  44. unicorn breath says:

    Hi Danny.

    Cosine on you being BB’s best guest blogger yet.


  45. Jeff says:

    I think the BoingBoinganism should get you a once a month spot here. The perspective change is very nice.

  46. Ugly Canuck says:

    What’s the word?
    Alligahto! …or is it
    The Japanese word for “thank you” – I’ve heard it often in the Japanese movies I’ve watched, but I have not a clue as to its anglicized spelling.

  47. Flying_Monkey says:

    Danny – a really nice series of posts which reminded me of the sheer strangeness and wonder that I felt about Japan when I first lived there in the mid-90s. And in some ways so little fundamental has changed since then. But I’ve been in Tokyo a lot since, but the sad thing is that a lot of the ‘Akiba’ culture is under threat, isn’t it? I would have liked to have read more about what is going on with the ‘redevelopment’ of Akihabara and the increasing effort to drive our otaku shops and services from the area. My wife was at college with Morikawa Kaichiro, who you might know BTW. We try to stay in touch with what is up in Tokyo, even though we are now far away in the UK (well, actually I am even further away in Brazil, right now!).

    Thanks, Danny.

    I’ll be honest, I usually hate Boing Boing’s guest bloggers. Something about the frequency of their posts and the variety of topics..I just can’t wrap my head around them. You were the first that I felt engaged with and that the length, topic and tone of the posts during your residency were consistent. I’m a new fan!

    Danny Choo-you’re my new favorite! Thanks. .
