Nissan Introduces Manga-Influenced Car

The Independent reports that the design of Nissan's latest concept car, officially unveiled at this week's Frankfurt Motor Show, was influenced by Japanese manga and animation:

"I am influenced by Japanese animation, like the film Ghost in the Shell," says Eunsun, her eyes widening as I explain that I have no idea what she is referring to. She thinks I'm joking as she continues to explain that the car is conceptually rooted in computer games, and visually influenced by manga comics, anime (Japanese animation) and Second Life.
