Manga Origami by Márcio Hideshi Noguchi and Seth Friedman

The book, Manga Origami by Márcio Hideshi Noguchi and Seth Friedman is so much fun with manga characters! I always love origami, fold after continuous fold to create some adorable characters, creatures, and objects. However, this book is all based on Manga!  The facial features and clothing really remind me of those characters in familiar movies or TV shows. So it's just a blast that I can now create them and as many as I like!
The information to make each is very easy to understand. In the beginning, the book will explain what you need to have before starting, such as glue and a few other tools. The glue is basically just to keep the figure in shape and not move from the fold, which some origami doesn't require. However, if you want it to last, this is an excellent addition when creating these characters. You will also notice symbols that you need to know when it comes to folding and creating the character. It's not always the same in every book of origami and perfect so you don't get lost. There is actually a section in the front to explain each symbol it's trying to tell you to do next.
Of course, like many origami books, there is always going to be a step by step fold image and text beside each. So it's not too difficult for the average folder and can be a fun book for all ages!

Finally, I just love the final results and cute manga characters you can make, a total of 20 each with unique hairstyles, fun looking costumes, and accessories. This is just so much fun of creating your own and as many as you want too! Just remember to buy plenty of origami paper and you'll be set to create!
