What does it take to become a celebrity in the world of Japanese pop culture? If there’s any man to ask, it has to be Culture Japan’s very own Danny Choo. From humble beginnings, this man worked himself to the bone in order to reach the level of success he currently holds. The curator of an amazingly detailed blog about his life, the creator of pop culture mascot Mirai Suenaga, and the host of his very own Japanese television program, there’s no one who knows more about hard work and dedication than Danny Choo.
This year’s Sydney Manga and Anime Show allowed us the opportunity to sit down and have a one-on-one interview with the man himself to talk about, well…pretty much what I detailed above. In a quite room, away from the hustle and bustle of the convention, we sat and spoke about as much as we possibly could within the short time we had with him, but you don’t want to simply read about an interview, you want to see the interview!
So enough out of me, for now. Below, I have provided for you the complete interview so sit back, relax, brew yourself a nice cup of tea, and enjoy our time with Danny Choo.
Thank you to both Danny Choo and SMASH! for allowing us the time to conduct a proper interview despite how truly busy the weekend was.
