Evangelion Goes Origami

Japan is awesome for origami, and hell, they ought to, they invented the freaking thing! And so here we have a video of someone doing the Eva 01 from Evangelion with a single sheet of paper. It looks terribly complicated and at some points my mind cant comprehend the difference between careful folds and just crumpling the fucking paper around but the end result is pretty impressive, considering its a single sheet of paper.

Get Your Anime Papercraft On

hatsune-miku-papercraft

Too cheap to buy anime figures? Yearning for the days of arts and crafts back in school? It’s time you got your papercraft on. Just paper, scissors, some glue and free time can get you some pretty spiffy stuff to put on your shelves. The Japanese have gone crazy for papercraft in the last couple of years, with message boards entirely dedicated to sharing models, techniques and collections. They even have Pepakura, a 3D modeling software that prints out patterns for papercraft.

There’s tons of stuff out there for you to do in a boring weekend, anime models, planes, cars, guns, tanks. Here’s a list of sites where you can get models like the amazingly cute Hatsune Miku you see above.

PaperKraft – Best English resource

Cafetera – One of the best papercraft designers, in Japanese

Sasatoku – More of a general collection of models, still, pretty neat stuff.

And of course you’ll need a copy of Pepakura to view and print most of these, but an entrepreneurial internet person like you should easily manage to complete that. Or, you know, be lazy and click here to download the Pepakura viewer.

Thanks to desudesu for the idea, resources and photo of his awesome Miku
