posted on by Kim Morrissy
Stop-motion animator Kenta Shinohara, who recently worked on the animated series Rilakkuma and Kaoru, has been posting some of his own stop-motion animations on Twitter lately. A number of them revolve around figurines of anime and video game characters performing amusing actions.
On March 25, Shinohara posted this animation of Ryu from Street Fighter KO-ing a tin can with a single combo. This tweet went viral, accumulating over 16,000 retweets.
On Wednesday, he posted a video of Megumin from KONOSUBA casting one of her explosions, and then promptly falling flat on her face afterward.
On Thursday, he posted a video of a LLENN Nendoroid from Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online attempting to shoot down a can... but to no avail.
Other videos he's made include Spider-Man swinging his web and a Kamen Rider character nibbling on potato chips:
