Project - Anpanman

My near to complete project - Anpanman, is one of the most well known picture book & cartoon character in Japan since 1973, written by Takashi Yanase. The series has over 1,500 characters that are mostly food related.  Even though it is not as well known as Hello Kitty within North America, Anpanman is extremely popular in Japan.

Anpanman - Papercraft

Having myself fascinated by Anpanman (a Japanese anime cartoon began in 1973), I did some searching and found a nice little papercraft template at June's Blog.

Though the template came with Anpanman alone without any instructions, I managed to modified and created 3 other characters - (from left to right) Melonpanna, Baikinman, Shokupanman:

I'm on my way to complete a few more characters. Currypanman and Creampanda is going to be a challenge:

Uncle Jam          Currypanman

Dokin-chan           Creampanda
