Fans on 2channel are excited at the slight "cleavage" she shows here. I haven't

Pop-Up Book Version of the Denpa Onna OP

A few hours ago, Nishida Asako tweeted that she really liked the paper-cut version of the Denpa Onna OP she had recently seen on NicoNico Douga.



The video and the paper-cut art are by a paper-cut hobbyist known as kurumigi. He posted the video on NicoNico about a week ago.

Nishida-san is the famous animator who is the animation character designer and co-animation director of Shinbou Akiyuki's current show Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko. She was also character designer/animation director of Simoun. That she has no objection to someone taking her designs and re-using them in this way is refreshing.

The video will take a few seconds to appear. To get rid of the comments, click the three dots in the speech-balloon at the lower right.

The first bit of audio is the first few seconds of episode one, as Erio emerges from the sea and walks home.
