Summary of choice antics posted on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/HobbyDrama/comments/gsc4gc/anime_fashion_dolls_wabisabi_or_how_to_call/
Detailed summary about Smart Doll: https://nasilemaktech.com/comic-fiesta-smart-doll/

Danny is obsessed with Japanese schoolgirls and fap. Moved to Japan, started "Culture Japan" ironically misinterpreting Japanese culture for weebs abroad, on his blog.
Read about his history of stalking and marvel at his disturbing lack of self-awareness in his autobiography: https://archive.dannychoo.com/en/posts/how-discovering-japan-changed-my-life?lang=en

Danny loves anime tiddies. He used to be a Volks (hobby company) fanboy and used a Volks Dollfie Dream (anime tiddy doll) to make a custom doll of his OC Mirai. Toured the volks manufacturing plant, then asked Volks to make an official Dollfie Dream (DD) of Mirai. Volks said "No." Danny's ego was so damaged by the rejection that he cried to daddy Choo, and daddy Choo gave baby boy Danny $30 mil to make his own big tiddy anime dolls. Despite his own dolls being near-replicas of DD, if you even mention Volks in a tweet or comment Danny will perma-ban you from his shop (even if you've never bought anything from him).

Danny's doll company is Smart Doll. It was called Smart Doll because the dolls were originally little robo-doll smart phone accessories. Now they're just regular dolls because robotics were too difficult, apparently. He's done shitty things to fuel his ego like not crediting his doll sculptors, photographing himself in front of a workstation as if he's done all the work. After one of his sculptors rage-quit and exposed him on a public forum Danny now claims he's the designer, not the sculptor.

Danny uses his dolls to RP petty revenge fantasies against his "haters" (anyone who doesn't worship him) and fills the doll product pages with baffling rants that read like an alien trying to simulate a human experience. Here's one where says having to deal with customers is literally the same thing as being a victim of the trans-Atlantic slave trade: https://shop.smartdoll.jp/products/smart-doll-courage

Danny doesn't want you to buy his shitty, overpriced dolls. In fact, he actively discourages it, because you're too much of a fucking idiot to be worthy of holding his OC waifus and any quality control issues or defects are YOUR fault, not his. Every time a customer receives an unsatisfactory product, Danny has a social media meltdown and adds another point to his disclaimer: https://info.smartdoll.jp/en/posts/before-you-buy

Jesus this guy is such an asshat and his dolls not cute at all.

No. 112748

I used to be into his content for a bit a couple of years ago until i moved on and forgot about this guy. The funny thing about his OC Mirai is that i thought she was more of a Mary Sue than anything and i thought it was HILARIOUS she had her own Anime in the making and it never came to fruition. At one point, i WANTED to buy his Moe-kana/Moe-Kanji cards. They were cards to teach you Japanese as well as a nendoroid figure of Mirai but thankfully, i dodged a bullet due to how utterly boring she is as a character and by design.

Video is the anime opening 'Mirai Millennuim' which to this day, still hasn't been in production. I wonder how much money he gave JC Staff to produce this. Shame cause it makes the series look boring as hell, just like him.

Okay, i NEVER seen this before! Very interesting how he comes up with these ideas, gives Anime studios money to produce a PV/OP but never follows through with them. I would've thought he would've tried hyping up Mirai Millennium at the time considering it stars his mascot.

The bodyguard would wait at the traffic lights when they where green and the drive through them when they were red thinking that we wouldn't follow - we followed all the time speeding through the oncoming cars from the left n right.

The flowers still looked decent so I nabbed them and skated in the direction of Hikaru's car as fast as I could. Fate was on my side and her car was stuck at some traffic lights. She winded down the window with a sorry look and accepted my flowers. I don't think it was her decision to set the guards on me - or at least that's what I like to think.

I've always wondered that too. If you scroll through his 'about' page, you'll notice he used to have photos of his wife on his work desk in the early days. Then those all got replaced with big titty animu girls over time. It must be awkward to have a husband obsessed with teen girls. Hopefully he doesn't have any kids.

From Jimmy Choo's Wiki:
>After college, Choo worked at two design companies for a total of nine years before opening his own business. Choo's parents moved to Britain to help him get started, and he eventually expanded the business by opening his own shop in 1986, renting an old hospital building. His craftsmanship and designs were soon noticed at London Fashion Week in 1988. After seeing his creations, Vogue featured the shoes in an eight page spread.

It doesn't sound like his parents struggled much, or even his grandparents tbh since Jimmy attended college and started working for design companies right after. Danny was born in 1972. It sounds like it was normal childcare because his parents were working long hours, which would make sense if they owned a store. The way he describes his childhood being "school > go home > eat > TV > to go room" sounds like a basic af childhood.

The Hadid sisters also claim they did it all themselves. I think it's common amoung rich kids to make up a struggle so they don't have to admit they had it all handed to them.

I can't be 100% sure this child exists. Danny posts confusing and unfunny April fools jokes every year.

One theory is he PVs creative products on April 1 so when feedback is lukewarm or negative he can backpedal and claim it was all a (really expensive) joke. The products that get positive feedback go into production immediately, like his 3-eyed doll head.

>> 112753

Video was uploaded on April 1 and it was supposedly an April fools joke. It's confusing because he teased the project earlier as if it was a real project and hints to be going ahead with the project in the April fools blog post.

I feel you anon. I feel like they are the same rotten garbage (like, come on, this dude is rich, and the fruit doesnt fall off very far from the tree), and while Jimmy Choos are legit beautiful, these dolls look like attrocious things and give me weird sex doll vibes. Like, comparing them to let's say a Pullip or another cute fashion doll vs those creepy as fuck japanese sex dolls that look young af, they look more like the latter.
His smart doll website also says "find out why they are smart ;)" with the ";)" emoji in them and I legit thought they were going to have a hole opening in them or something like that. Like, who actually buys these? These are not cute or fashionable. They look like weird mini humans. Yiiikees.

Just want to touch upon something on the OP, I think Danny trying to be passive aggressive discouraging purchasing the product is quite recent. Not just the FAQ but all the disclaimers on each dolls page, I think some anons from 4chan noticed it when it changed. It was sometime this year.
This man is slowly losing his mind and one day he's going to have a bad freakout and it'll be funny as fuck to watch.

lol. When I look at these dolls I think the target audience is not children, but adult men. It's obvious these dolls are meant to be sexually appealing to men and probably used for masturbatory purposes, even if they don't have a hole (yet).

Most if not all (adult looking) BJDs have weird sexy bodies, its just another way to distinct them as super speshul adult collectibles than just toys.

The audience is definitely not children, but the expensive, fancy little doll market is actually mostly women. They're kind of fun from a fashion and photography standpoint.

To be honest with you I have no idea, no one in my comm has said anything about the quality. It just started one day with one lady saying "I got a Smart Doll!" And then suddenly everyone wanted to be included in the club.

I've yet to find a flaw with my DDs that I wouldn't expect from a Smart Doll so from my personal doll experience? I think people just want to be noticed by Danny Choo. My comm is close knit with the staff of another doll company so maybe it's the "we have friends in high places" bug.

Ah ok, I just didn't think any woman would want to buy something that looks like it was specifically made for scrotes to jerk off to. But I guess women also watch anime with bouncing breasts and pantyshots and music videos with 16 year old "idols" dancing around in bathing suits without realizing how fucking disgusting it is.

I used to own one, from the One Piece collab. I stopped being a dollfag and sold all of my dolls because I found less boring hobbies. Plus the doll community is full of munchies. The appeal for me was just fancy character merch.

I didn't find Nami particularly shitty compared to my DDs but I know Toei is fussy so maybe that had something to do with quality control for that release. Would love to hear horror stories.

Danny himself is a narc and I didn't know about him naming his kid after his waifu. That's creepy as hell. I remember him having a serious health issue of some kind (tho munchieism is all the rage in the doll hobby so who knows if they are real) maybe the wife isn't worried about his creepy waifuism because she expects him to lose mobility or die soon.

People are just so used to sexualizing the female body they can't look at a slightly realistic doll without assuming the worst. Danny definitely initially aimed for sexy in the design, especially as be used to have wayyy too many bust sizes available to choose from, but now his hopefully-not-really-called Mirai irl child is older, he's pretending these dolls have been for children the whole time.

But generally BJD are not a sex thing in the slightest, like if you wanna jizz on something why choose a 60cm piece of plastic that cost you $600 when you could just buy a full size sex doll for 1-2k. Like they are primarily collector items and people are just weird about dolls.

apparently attractive, realistic body = hentai lmfao. I guess this male bjd body is also hentai tier to you? I am not a fan of big bust bjd but it's normal that you can get them. In my opinion the bodies are neutral. It depends on the owner if the doll ends up looking sexualized or not. You can stick your big tiddy anime doll in a sweater and jeans and she will look normal, and vice versa. The bodies are imitating human bodies. They are idealized obviously but since they are realistic, it's normal they have tits and even dick. Most adult collectors are mature enough to not get shocked at doll nudity lol.
The sexualization of the dolls by Choo himself is creepy as fuck, but it's a problem of framing the dolls and not the dolls itself.

These dolls have really plain and frankly boring face molds, I don't get the point of shelling out big bucks for one. I cant put my finger on it but the faces just look plain weird Even DD dolls have nicer faces and can look stunning with a fresh faceup. Smart dolls are just bland looking.

To make my point without shitting on the rando on the right, dolls are obviously idealized human forms, some people do actually have nice bodies and symmetrical faces. A nice body and face does not = instantly a sexual thing, since some people are just born that way.

The vinyl doll hobby definitely has more perverts than the resin side, due to softer material, onaholes and silicone boob options, but really very few people are out there fucking resin dolls (iplehouse on the left are resin) and still most vinyl doll owners also do not fuck their dolls, but there are definitely more dollfuckers on the vinyl side (gag). The anime figure collecting side of things does swing male and incel so it can be a problem.

But BJD aren't sexual simply because the bodies are symmetrical and well sculpted. Barbie probably has similar or worse proportions to the iple dolls (and was originally inspired by a sex doll) but again is 99.99999% little girls buying it and not perverts.

tl;dr ideal proportions does not = sex thing, but obviously people will fuck anything, and some dolls are aimed at perverts, mostly on the vinyl and anime figure side, which obviously is what Danny chose and is now pretending was for children the whole time.

I think it kicked off in 2017 when Danny teased a 2B Nier Automata Smart Doll before he got approval or the IP license. Volks got the license to make Dollfie Dream 2B and 9S instead, kek. Waifu doll rejection again tied to Volks.

He likes making Smart Doll of his favorite animu waifus. He teases official chara dolls without licenses as if he's pushing the rights holder to give him permission to make the doll. "see look I already made a prototype. I did all this work it's only right you let me make the doll"

Danny's business practices are not congruent with Japanese business practices and he's driven away most of his Japanese consumer base. It's easy to assume that the companies who own the characters he wants to make dolls of are refusing because of his reputation in Japan.

A lot of people opt for second-hand to avoid Danny. My theory is he has some copyright situation happening with Volks; maybe they told him he can continue to sell his similar dolls as long as he doesn't try and replace any of their product lines. Hence canceling accessory sales when it's for a DD or they don't own a Smartdoll.
I particularly like Tomorrow and Monday, but could never shell out that much for a doll personally.

Danny posted his weekly scheduled rant about how special his business practices are and the customer is always wrong. https://www.instagram.com/p/CFkC2gWBkgh

His stans are mini-cows themselves.

Context for non-doll anons:
> 'Milk' is one of the skin colors for his dolls.
> Milk is popular because it matches rival Volks DD color and people could hybrid the doll parts together.
> Smart Doll bodies started out being similar in price or a little cheaper than DD, and Danny sold an option part that connected DD heads to Smart Doll bodies, until Volks sent a C&D.
> Now Smart Doll is way more expensive than DD and people want to put Smart Doll head on DD body because its cheaper by a couple hundred dollars.
> Danny refuses to sell doll heads separate unless customer can prove they own one of his dolls already.
> Danny sells his standard doll heads alone for close to $300, compare to DD standard heads at around $40.

I love how he credits everything to himself, yet when he lurks feels attacked, he has to paint himself as a hero.

Danny is telling his stans to harass anyone who says they aren't satisfied with his product.

Context is he's selling blind box dolls for the same price as regular dolls (around 500 bucks). Customer complaints have included poor quality items and getting doubles of the same doll.

Doubles wouldn't be bad in a regular gatcha, but this is the guy who double-checks the order history of everyone who buys his shit to ensure their worthiness to give him the yens. He knows what dolls they already bought from him and the dolls aren't packed in blind boxes.

He promotes his products a lot. The whole "don't buy this" is elitism and exclusivity run through a cringe weeb filter. Like, he's so rich that he doesn't care if he lost a sale to a customer so he can tell them to fuck off and buy something else. Similar to designer brand stores where the staff will say if someone can't afford anything in the shop they should just leave. That makes people with the dolls also feel elite like the Smart Doll is a status symbol. Smart Doll is a Gucci or Coach purse.

It's also so when an unfortunate sap complains about a shoddy item Danny can turn around and say that he warned them not to buy it, so it's the customer's fault and he has no responsibility to make it right.

Danny decided that buying 2 dolls from him ($1000+) is no longer a sufficient display of brand loyalty to qualify for buying his overpriced gatcha (~$500 a pop). Now you must buy 5 dolls ($2500+) to qualify for the privilege of purchasing a gatcha doll.
> gatcha is the only way to get certain desirable dolls that are not released for sale

Needless to say, some people were upset about this bullshit change in policy and expressed their disappointment in the FB groups and on social media. His stans harassed them and posts were quickly deleted.

Smart Dolls are luxury items and most people have to save up months and months to afford one basic doll. Danny thinks if you don't have enough wealth to drop $500-$1000 on an impulse purchase that means you are a poor person and you should buy food for your family instead because he doesn't want dirty hobos touching his painfully generic big tiddy waifus.

Why the hell would you ever want that though?? Vinyl is such a shitty material compared to resin - it stains easier and looks and feels cheap, also ages badly. Volks resin ages beautifully and resin in general looks and feels expensive and porcelain-like.

I like how along with shitting on all his past BJD collector customers by setting up the smartdoll website as a product for children (as if it has always been this way) he has now extended the shipping time (that's two weeks to dispatch not arrive) when short shipping times was one of the things he did right.

I don't really get why he bothers trying to have at big company when he doesn't understand the basics of customer service, let alone what would be expected from a "luxury" or niche market.

If he wanted to be a piss baby about everything, he should have thought about keeping it on a very small hobby scale.
Like that chick that makes custom porcelain dolls. When you're doing something much more specific and artisan, then you can be expected to not really give a fuck.

No-one posted about the bacteria yet?

Last year there was dolls with bright pink spots in the plastic. The pink marks are made by bacteria. The mods in smartdoll groups defend the spots saying its not a flaw of quality control. How??

Because of previous typhoon, smartdoll shop was flooded. The pink marks appeared on dolls purchased directly after. Have dolls been in dirty typhoon water and sold to customers? Of course smartdoll did not accept any fault.

I am a vintage My Little Pony toy collector and a lot of vintage ponies are susceptible to this same kind of mold problem in the vinyl. It can also appear as "black spot". There isn't a lot that can be done to get rid of it, as it actually stains the vinyl. Best thing to do is to keep the infected dolls away from the healthy ones, as it can spread.

Jesus, I've noticed this with playline vinyl doll heads. Depending on how they were stored before you purchased them, I have had to throw away two cheap playline dolls due to a black spot appearing in their vinyl (my home is always temperate without any damp or mould issues)

For $500 dolls to have this issue is terrible and imo it can't be fixed, like good luck getting mould out of the inside of any porous surface. I will assume no replacements from camp Danny for those.
