  1. Just an idea, but you could make the loops out of strips of thick card and cello tape to save time with all the folding

  2. Jo Nakashima-san I am a big fan of Sword Art Online I wonder if you can show us how to make swords from this anime?

  3. Please make beautiful wreath origami! I've been your fan since a year ago and always stalking to your tutorial. Keep up the good work! ^^

  4. I read all the comments, this is youtube where there are many negatives, I saw none, NONE. This video is impossibly amazing! Thanks Jo Nakashima, you get less credit to many amazing origami projects then you should(My nick name for you is best youtuber on earth lol)

  5. I have a tip not a complaint; please include stuff like 20 complete circles and 16 lines or something like that in your vids, thanks you.

  6. can you please find a way to create legit armour? 
    like nor chain-mail but actual armour, such as a chest-piece, ive been trying for a couple months now and i Havnt been able to figure it out

  7. What is a "chainmail" in this sense? I only knew of those chain mails you send through email which is those "send to 10 other people or bla bla bla…".

  8. Superb video! I can either watch it to relax (no music or spoken words during the creation segment- way better than most ASMR videos, ironically) or, with the visual guide, easily create it myself!
    I'm thinking the chainmail design would make a nice necklace! Though, for that, it might be more of a triangular shape.
    Thanks, I appreciate the work you put into these videos!

  9. I'm not sure if this is a coincidence, but I took printer paper and cut it up into as many 10cm x 2.5cm pieces (the size Jo Nakashima used) and I ended up with 22, which is half the number of pieces recommended for the model.

  10. You can use this to make a ring! Just get a square piece of paper, cut in half, use that 1:2 ratio and follow the steps of this video to make one module and you will end up with a ring

  11. @Jo Nakashima

  12. Hi there! I tried to do this with a 6 in 1 pattern and I think I messed up. How do you do a 6 in 1 with your method?
