These Pepakura paper toys are absolutely amazing! I could barely believe my eyes when I read that they were made entirely from paper.

Created by Japanese designer Pepakura, the detail and craftsmanship found in these paper toys is almost as intricate as the plastic figurines you'll find at anime conventions. Pepakura's ability to take paper and form it into realistic manga characters is truly remarkable.

Implications - Anime originated within Asian subcultures but it has quickly made its way around the globe. As a result, popular anime designs have found there way into varying industries and have been welcomed with open arms from consumers. Businesses should constantly be considerate of subcultural styles that could make it big.
