Mirai Suenaga (末永みらい) is the site mascot character for Culture Japan (dannychoo.com) who I developed with illustrator Azami Yuko. Mirai started off as a single illustration in the corner of the site back in 2007 and since then has gained much popularity worldwide.
There has been many Mirai collaboration projects with Japanese companies such as Good Smile Company, Cospa, Nitro Plus, Kadokawa, King Records and more.
The kanji of her name is 末永未来 but "Mirai" is written as Hiragana. Her name means "Eternal Future".
Mirai is also the heroine for the story Mirai Millennium - will release the scenario soon but in the meantime checkout the following anime sequence of Mirai Millennium which has been adapted for the OP for Culture Japan Season 2. The OP is produced by JC Staff and Mirai Fusion.
