- The Contest: Take an picture of yourself – preferably somewhere interesting – and superimpose an image of Mirai-chan over the top. Upload to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #MiraichanHJ. The themes can be anything from taking Mirai-chan on vacation (even just around London) to including her in your daily life! Think “Mirai-chan visiting the Tower Bridge,” or “My morning with Mirai-chan.” Entries will be judged and winner will be chosen from all entrants, with final approval coming from Danny himself! There will be one winner and two runners up.
- The Prizes: The winner will receive a Mirai Suenaga Smart Doll, which will be presented to them by Danny on stage during one of the days of his talk! The runners up will each receive a set of “Moegana” Mirai-chan hiragana flash cards.
- The Nitty Gritty: You must use one of the Mirai-chan png files provided below. We recommend using an app like Over to achieve this, although the use of this app is not a requirement. Only one entry per person is allowed. Winners must attend HYPER JAPAN to claim their prize.
- Dates: The contest will run from 16 June – 30 June, with winners announced on 7 July
Mirai Suenaga , while originally created with the purpose to prettify her creator’s website “dannychoo.com,” ended up turning out to be much more than a website mascot! Mirai-chan has gone on to collaborate with various anime and game companies such as Square Enix, Good Smile Company, Bushiroad, Ascii Media Works, King Records, Nitroplus and Isetan. In 2013, Mirai became an official mascot for Japan Tourism and in 2014 she became an official mascot for Malaysia Tourism.
