This papercraft Black Rock Shooter isn't imaginary

More like Black PAPER Shooter, am I right?!

Oh, wow. Usually when we talk about cool papercraft things, we think of characters with the general shape of Danbo, but this. This papercraft version of Black Rock Shooter, the Hatsune Miku spinoff that apparently and pseudo-imaginary fighter symbolizing little girls' emotional trauma, is a cool papercraft thing.

And it should be, coming from Plus Kareha, the same people who lovingly rendered my wife in that most immortal flammable of mediums.

I have to say, though, this one's quite a bit more complex, what with all that flowing paper hair, the eye-flame, a to-scale model of the Rock Cannon, and the sculpture's sole concession to non-paper material, lovingly replicated clothing, decorative zippers and all.

In fact, at first glance this model looks easily as detailed as the CG characters from the Black Rock Shooter TV series. Compare the series intro embedded below to some more sweet pictures over here to see how they match up.
