This Robot Gets Around

This cardboard robot has a penchant for travel, adventure, and distracting Michael Yu from his studies


Photo of Danboard (Danbo) by Michael Yu

Meet Danboard – Danbo for short. The lovable robot, featured in the Japanese comic series Yotsuba&!, is actually a cardboard costume worn by one of the characters. With adjustable body parts and an expression that lends itself to many situations, fans have been photographing the action figure in earnest.

Third-year statistics student Michael Yu wanted to capture the popular character in a different light. He took this photo last fall at the Harbourfront Centre, and waited for hours to get the perfect light.
