When The Anime World And Car World Collide In Japan

Recommended Posts

Itasha Gathering in Odaiba, Tokyo on the 4th of October 2009. For those who are not aware, an Itasha is a car decked out with anime decals!

It translate to "painful car", which can be viewed as painfully embarrassing for the owner or painful to their wallets. It is a relatively new scene here in Japan and was very interesting to see. There were some nice example of nicely done up cars which also has the performance to match, so you can laugh at them until they whoop your ass on the track. There were close to 800 cars with not enough time to get the details but we did what was possible to show the event as a whole. Just about any type of vehicle participated in the event from VIP, Imports, Classics, K-Cars, Full tuned Sports, Wagons, Family and ECO.

Some may feel that the vehicles have been defaced and some may take a more light-hearted view. One thing that is for certain is that there are alot of creative ways to accent your vehicle with vinyl and many of the designs took alot of time and effort to create.

Hope you guy enjoy the pictures and get some creative inspiration out of them.

Great to see so much work put into something so... erm.... different.

May not be to my taste, but I can certainly appreciate it (and laugh along with it).

How could anyone in their right mind fag up an R32 GT-R like that? (the typemoon one). Oh I see, a GT-R bandwagon-jumping anime freak owns it. :D

I want a put a nice decal of either Nemu Kurotsuchi (from bleach) or Saber (from fate stay night) or Mokka Akashiya (from Rosairo +vampire) on my car one day :D

I've already put anime pillows on the back seats in my car...

I must admit being into cars for so long and seeing so many nice cars with a set of horrible rims and ghey cartoon characters on it has got the inner snobby real car tuner in me grinding my teeth. Do not like.

the name for them here used to be bakasha which was just stupid cars

then changed to itasha (shortened from atama itai, headache/brain damage) loosely translating to retarded cars. And the name seems to have stuck LOL

Personally whilst I would never ever do this to my own car. I do find this interesting, seen pics of this type of thing before. We can't all modify in the same way, so it makes for a humorous easy going break to all the pure hearted performance cars you normally see which are more track then street.

And what is it about all the jap girls at those events that is slightly awesome :D

Different, not to my taste but I respect their hard work.

I'm sure the QPS would find a way to defect you for it though.
