3-D Doraemon Paper Cup Manga

Art Anime Doraemon

Japanese Twitter user Shinrashinge (@shin___geki) has created a cute manga featuring our favorite characters from the popular series Doraemon. Only it involves a twist—or several twists, really—as it’s made from three paper cups that form the moving parts.

Using cut-outs, the cups provide three layers of art to work with, meaning character dialogue can change in the one scene. The layers also help bring details to the foreground and blend one scene with the next, creating an ever-changing visual, just like a short anime.

As the story unfolds, Doraemon, Nobita and Shizuka climb into Nobita’s drawer to board their time machine. Since uploading a video of his Doraemon paper cup manga in action, the clip has received more than 270,000 retweets. It might be only 28 seconds long, but it’s captivating enough to watch over and over again.

To see more of the talented 22-year-old’s creations, you can take a look at his three-cup One Punch Man manga. With his prolific output of clever art, we’re sure it won’t be long before we get to see more from him again!
