Manga Cars

Today I’m sharing one of my vices: reading Manga and spotting cars in the background! Yes, it’s really something odd that I can’t let go and sometimes you really find nice treasures: like the Nissan Skyline R30 that made me buy this book!
Manga Car Spotting - The Walking Man part one

The Walking Man by Jiro Tanaguchi

The Manga I’m reading here is called The Walking Man by Jiro Tanaguchi. If you wish to obtain this book yourself, you can find it here: The Walking Man by Jiro Tanaguchi @ Amazon
In this first episode I’ll introduce this new concept, before jumping into each and every car I could find. I just counted them and the grand total is 23 cars, plus one surprise car that magically changes when you flip the page!

You can find the video and the high resolution scans of the panels containing manga cars below:

Manga Car spotting video

Even though I spent a lot of time preparing this video and am convinced all cars have been identified correctly, I can always be wrong. Don’t hesitate to leave any suggestions or updates in the comments below! Also to make it easier for you to look in depth at these manga cars, I’ve includes the scanned panels in the next section below.

Scanned panels

Take notice that I only include the panels including the manga cars here: I think this is already borderline and including complete scanned pages would probably be copyright infringement.
