Transform yourself into a Manga Character!

How’s this for a time-waster?
Discovered ANA (All Nippon Airlines) Manganizer website and I am seriously hooked.

I spent a big chunk of my time this evening just playing with the site. Plus, I wanted to know if I look like the perfect manga girl. My appropriated face is far from it — in fact, I look like a stunted chibi.

The site is very easy to use and follow: upload your pic, modify according to your expectations and generate the cartoon version of yourself. The finished product will be used in developing a manga story viewable also online. Such an engaging time waster that I ended up calling it a night without me finishing the article I am supposed to hand in by tomorrow.

In a statement, ANA revealed that they created the site in order to entice young people to come and visit Japan. It is also their way of bringing back by promoting tourism and the company of course.
