Shippo’s “Kappa Theater” app is coming out! It has been popular since she had uploaded to MySpace when it was the biggest social network at the time.
Kappa Theater is the irregular serial story that is the part of the so-called a Blog, and the story goes on in the Ameba Blog. You can see the story from the first episode to the newest episode. (As soon as the newest episode comes out) And you can read in Japanese and in English too!
When you hold the device in a portrait mode, you can read the story like a Blog. And when you hold the device in a landscape mode, you can read it as a picture book!
The user interface is very sophisticated design, and you’ll get used to it soon.
In advance, you can read 10 episodes, and you can download each episode (the episodes are 320 over) which you want to.
This app makes people of all ages smile, and it’s free.
Advanced Option :
When you’ll buy this low price add-on, you can download the original picture(the big size).
The original picture is very high quality, so you can use it for the big screen’s wallpaper.

Kappa Theater :
“Hey, Shippo san” Kappa chan and his friends said to me. They were very innocent and cute, so I uploaded to MySpace to introduce them. I’ve been shown their daily life with their photos and words.
Kappa chan and his friends failed, and they mean no harm. When Kappa chan and his friends do something bad, they apologize. Every Kappa chan has his own color. Everyone is different. They are friends even if everyone has their own thing. Everyone is different, but they’re friends and amazing. If they are same, we cannot recognize each of them.
Kappa is a yokai (it’s a class of supernatural monster) found in Japanese folklore, and also a cryptic. the features are a carapace, webbed hands and feet, a plate (sara), which is a flat hairless region on top of their head that is always wet, and which is regarded as the source of their power. Their favorite food is cucumbers. There are many people who resembles Kappa. I wonder if Kappas blend to human lives they don’t even realize themselves.
