Stormtrooper in Tokyo

Some months ago I discovered Dannychoo.com, a really cool blog that teaches about japanese otaku culture, idols and life in Japan. On of the most weird-interesting things is that the author of the blog has a Storm Trooper armor, and he wears it not only at events but also as a normal suit.

It happened that I had the honor to meet Danny Choo in the real world and accompanied him to a “trooping session” around Tokyo. It was really funny, weird, interesting to see a Stormtrooper walking around thousands of japanese people, inside the train, inside shops… I loved when tired Japanese people walking without energy looking at the floor, would walk just next to DannyChoo/Stormtrooper without realizing. Just after some seconds they feel something weird and they look up startled at that Stormtrooper that is walking next to them, smile and take a photo with their mobile phone. They got a smile and a photo they could show to their friends and family.

I took lots of photos, here are some of them:


Can you imagine the face of this guy when he entered the train?


Notice the people taking photos from the other platform.


Funny face 🙂

If you don’t have enough, Danny Choo was on Japanese TV this friday an you can see the TV show online.
