As part of the Nissan sponsorship, the movie features two concept cars designed by Nissan. The character Togusa drives a white Nissan's Sport Concept hatchback, and both Togusa and Aramaki travel in Nissan's six seater Infiniti Kuraza. Nissan's six seater Infiniti Kuraza's license plate is 3923 which read as san-kyuu-ni-san (in Japanese) or "Thank you Nissan". See more »
There's two kind of anime(Japanese animation):one kind shows clichés of the genre and the other kind is used as an economic way for telling very variate stories which could exist with real actors but that it would be very expensive to make as normal movies.In the first category,I would put almost all of the teen anime with melodramatic stories,girls using the school uniform,tragic heroes,giant robots,surrealistic humor and magic creatures.In the second category,I would put more serious movies made to adults where the narrative has a complexity and emotional impact that we will never find in Pokemon or Digimon.As examples,I can mention Cowboy Bebop,all the movies made by director Satoshi Kon(for example,Perfect Blue or Millennium Actress) and the cyber-punk movies of Ghost in the Shell.Ghost in the Shell,based on the manga(comic) written by Masamune Shirow,has been adapted to TV and to the cinema.The films are Ghost in the Shell and Ghost in the Shell 2:Innocence.That films do not have much to do with the original manga because director Mamoru Oshii took the futuristic stories and concepts to explore philosophic and fascinating topics.Oshii put to them impressing images and spectacular action scenes but his emphasis is always in the ideas.As a parallel version of the same stories,the TV series Ghost in the Shell:Stand Alone Complex is more like the manga,making a balance between philosophic topics,politic mystery and futuristic action.Ghost in the Shell:Solid State Society is like a sequel of that TV series.Ghost in the Shell:Solid State Society is an exciting,intelligent,complex and very interesting film.This movie is a real masterpiece.Director Kenji Kamiyama tells an excellent story in this movie.The animation is perfect.Solid State Society is a very intelligent entertainment,which makes us think at the same time it totally entertains us.This masterpiece is a pleasure to any lover of the cinema.
