Nengajo 2014

POSTED BY DANNY CHOO On Fri 2014/01/17 15:25 JST in Japanese Culture

At the beginning of the year, it is the tradition in Japan that family and business partners send each other greeting cards known as Nengajo .
Today, Mirai and Kizuna Smart Doll show us just some of the better looking cards we received from my anime related clients and partners.

Up until now, I never got round to sending any myself as I've always been too hands on with work and short staffed - but it looks like things will be different for 2015 ^^

This one from anime studio Ufotable.

To let you know that the frame inside Mirai now is a prototype and we are reducing the size of the wrist joints ^^
