Cosplayers of Kiyohiko Azuma's manga robot suit march in Seattle's Pride Parade

Several life-size replicas of Danbo, the cardboard robot suit from Kiyohiko Azuma's Yotsuba& slice-of-life manga, marched in the annual Pride Parade in Seattle on Sunday, courtesy of cosplaying staff members from the online retailer Amazon.

"Danbo" comes from "danbōru," the Japanese word for "cardboard."

Thanks to Ryan Peterson for the tip.
