Akihabara with Danny Choo

  Aug 26th, 2009

Caught up with Danny Choo who was doing some filming with the BBC TV crew tonight in Akihabara. Looks like Stormtrooper Danny is popular wherever he goes. Between keitai phone photos, flashes popping on normal cameras and the film crew doing their bit, managed to squeeze in a few photos of my own.

    Every one that didn’t know who Danny was should surely know who he is now. CNN, BBC,G4tv and the #1 blogger in Japan. You can’t get any bigger than this. All of his hard work is surely paying off.
    Can’t wait to see the videos. And your photo shoot was also great. You are always able to catch the angles that others miss. Thank you! Another wonderful and insightful article, just like your Gundam photo shoot.

    Danny Choo is the man. Seriously, he’s making a living doing what most of us do as a hobby. How cool is that? Good on ya, Danny! Can’t wait to see the BBC video.
