Piperoids - Rokusuke and Hachi
Piperoids are paper craft robots and other creatures designed and produced in Japan. Made from just paper pipes with pre-drilled holes and marks to cut, fold, and connect, they come together without the need for glue or tape.
Rokusuke is a Kabukimono – a member of a group of jobless samurai warriors, or ronin, who are known by their violent acts and exotic fashions. Being always full of energy, he often gets himself in trouble except when his dog Hachi, who he adores excessively, is with him. He flaunts his sword that he carries at all times, but it’s actually so long that he can’t brandish it himself.
