Recorded June 30th, 2011.
NSK was fortunate enough to grab some time with Danny Choo on Thursday, June 30th, one day before the convention started. For those who don’t know, Danny Choo is an icon among those who follow Japanese entertainment and culture, who’s genuinely humble attitude and inspiring determination has created thousands of followers and fellow enthusiasts.
As a CEO of his own company, Mirai Inc, he has had a hand in almost everything, from producing figmas and anime, to directing and producing his own television show, ‘Culture Japan’. He has recently published an article, ‘How Discovering Japan Changed My Life’, providing a personal and motivating story of how he got to where he is today(highly recommended read). Danny Choo was very gracious for meeting up with us(and even extending our interview time), and we would love to have another chance to talk to him again.
So here it is! Expect talks about the unfortunate side-effects of fame, what Danny Choo’s favorite idol group may be, and some insight on the Japanese housing industry as well as the importance of cash. Yes. All that and more on the interview!
