CARS: Japanese Itasha Trend

Source: The Wonderous

Japanese always try to have new, unique and wonderful trends. Itasha is a trend to decorate car bodies with fictional characters of anime, manga, or video games. These characters are predominately “cute” female. The decorations usually involve paint schemes and stickers. Automobiles are called Itasha, while similar motorcycles and bicycles are called itansha and itachari respectively. Check out here what they have done with their vehicles.

WOW! That looks really pretty. Not sure I'd ride in such a car but one had to admire all the artwork. Anime fans really are one of the most loyal fanbases around!

It seems like a paradox - a perfect car for otaku, except they almost never leave the house!

I'm not sure otaku even have cars.
I think they're subway-people.

Or live and die in mom's basement-people.
