dude, a couple years ago when i was driving to vegas, i saw a whole gang of itasha's... i never knew it was a big thing. there were like 10 of them caravaning to las vegas. they were civics, xB's, and something else. i forgot. i mean, it was cool, but kinda wow. if you know what i mean

edit: everyone in the car with me who saw the itasha's thought the images looked pretty cool... but it's kinda. yea... weird

I've seen pics like those online quite a bit and I've usually passed them off as well done photoshops, though I did think some of them were real. I didn't know it was a relatively common thing (enough to earn it it's own terminology). I especially like the hug pillows converted into seat covers.

Personally, I could never fathom doing it. I don't like to advertise being an anime fan as it is right now (i.e. shirts, reading manga in public, talking about anime in public, admitting to knowing what it is...). Granted I have a jeep, but even if I had something like a ricer I still wouldn't do it. I've found over the years the more I hide my strange and oft misunderstood hobbies like anime there better I have been for it. A car covered in giant anime stickers would just shatter that good policy to pieces.





>> u know his right .... the more i hid it the better it is .... hahahahahahahaha(crazy laughter...)

whoa i never saw something like this before , if i had a car i would probably only decorate the inside with anime stuff. i might put stickers on the outside if they are somthing like final fantasy, guilty gear or street fighter stickers. also some of the stickers doesnt fit the car cause of the paint job on the car.

It sounds like you realy want to do this to the car, but also want to let your decision stand on public opinion on wheather its "cool or overboard". I say get the bebob out line if you want to just make sure its well proportioned and has good plasement on the car to look good. When done right it should look just fine with out taking away from the car its self . Only thing is dont go overboard.

PS. Out of all the cars you posted I only liked the Mercury Lampe one.

I personally think it's awesome doing that as a project car. Personally if I had the cash to get the vinyl printings and window designs. It may be a social disaster, but c'mon people gets bashed for just watching anime or going to conventions of any type. I mean if you saw that down the road theres different opinions but personally I think that's awesome.

People do hydrolics, lower their cars so that they could feel every bump on the road or whatever to "Pimp" out their cars. Pimp it out. Otaku style.

its cool i guess as long as its easy to come off...

So they're basically cars that have images that speak louder than words, the words being "I'm obsessed look at me! I'm going to distract you and cause you to crash. Kawaii!" -__-

I'd have one or two in moderation like bumper stickers, but a whole car? Mental...

i watched this show.. that featured itasha.. and it was a car show or sumthing like that...
the owners are really awesome for coming up with their own style~!
i would like to have an itasha, just for show though. i dont believe i can drive it around. haha ! >.<
or i could drive an itasha car, if the design is minimal. ^-^
