One of the first tasks of the Japanese conversational lessons I've been taking since September was for each of us to give a 20 minute speech in Japanese, at 2 people a day. When my turn came, I spent about 15 minutes teaching people how to make the Celes origami (took me 8 hours in advance to cut up and pre-fold the 180 strips needed to make the 6 balls to hand out at the end of the class). Someone took photos of each of us and handed out copies some time later. These are the two that I was given. This was at the end of my speech during the Q&A, when I was asked where I got the pattern for the Celes, and I chose to use the opportunity to talk about Otona no Kagaku and show off my robotized version of the Rhino.
