If Back to the Future Was Made by Japanese Geeks It would probably feature a Delorean that looks like this. Behold, the itasha DMC-12, complete with an "OUTATIME" California plate.


Itasha (痛車), literally "painmobile", are cars covered with anime, manga, or video game themed stickers. This Delorean is wrapped in Japanese anime Haiyore! Nyaruko-san and was on display at a recent itasha gathering in Tokyo's Odaiba.

If you are going to build an itasha, why not do it with style? Besides, the stainless-steel construction makes the stickers stand out.

Love that Back to the Future font for Haiyore! Nyaruko-san.
