Play your Manga. Brought to you by mieru record x OTOWA

Paper-Tape Music Box Manga brings to life stories through the power of manga and sound.
As illustrated paper-tape is fed through a music box, a story unfolds that can be both seen and heard with each turn of the handle.
Please enjoy this Paper-Tape Music Box along with the Paper-Tape Music Box Manga also available.

How it works

This video shows you how it works in practice. You slow down to read the parts with dialogue and then speed up over the more visual cells.
The idea is that the sounds and music accompany the manga strip both in terms of the melody and also the speed.

Express yourself through melody and manga with this paper-tape music box kit! The kit gives you the tools to create your very own melodies to use with a mechanical music box, which produces sound when hole-punched paper-tape is fed through. Included in the kit are the music box itself, a sheet of un-punched paper-tape and a special hole punch. The paper-tape is lined with a grid and a music staff to help you design your melodic creation! After you've completed your new tune, show off your art skills by decorating the paper-tape to create a visual accompaniment to the melody! In addition to your own work, the music box can be used with pre-made manga paper-tape as well (sold separately), so you'll be able to get plenty of entertainment from this unique device!
