    This is how Japan differs from the US. In Japan, you often stay with a company for most of your working life.

    Fair play to him, I hope he enjoys his retirement as much as we have loved the awesome toy robots he helped make.

    His Botcon panel was a real treat. Glad to have been there and to be around him.

    End of an era is right. I wish him the best, but this is a little sad in a sentimental way.
