University art students create Hiragana gashapon


Gotta write them all!

A small group of art students at Musashino Art University decided to come together for a final project for a typography class. What came out of this collective were gashapon capsules (and dispensers!) on the first character in the Hiragana written language.

The character, pronounced "ah", was produced using a laser cutter and presented in two different fonts, Mincho and Gothic. The capsules also came with paper fold outs and were presented in a full sized dispenser complete with its own display. More details on the project can be found on the Spoon & Tamango blog.

No word on what their final grade was and if they passed the course, but my suspicion is that they have nothing to worry about.
