Japan Is Building An Anime Bullet Train

The UK is world-renowned for their public transport arriving 20 minutes late and charging consumers a small fortune to travel by train or bus. It’s also certainly painful to the eyes to view a 1990s rusty train spluttering down the track, but are other countries any better?

Let’s take a gander and compare a British train with that of a newly planned decorated Shinkansen bullet train. The first image is that of a standard UK train, yep pretty boring, the next image below is that of the concept design bullet train. As you can see, it’s fantastic and would be ideal to travel to work on a cold and wet Monday morning.

So why has the train operator by the name of JR West, not related to fisherman John, become slightly crazy with their design team? Well, this is in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the hit anime by the name of Neon Genesis Evangelion. In addition to this amazing design for the 500 Type Eva model, the train will also have an Evangelion-themed interior and heaps of special memorabilia for fans to buy.

It’s a pity that Japanese consumers are the only ones to be able to appreciate this stunning design, perhaps we need a little less First Capital Connect and a bit more from JR West.
