A Thousand Cars, Covered In Otaku Stickers

A recent car show in Tokyo's Odaiba featured approximately 1,000 automobiles. These are hardly your typical cars.

Picking up where yesterday's Lancia Stratos left off, these are sticker-covered "itasha" (painmobile). The stickers are usually anime, manga or video game related.

In the greater Tokyo region alone, a thousand people or so decided they wanted to cover their cars in stickers and show them off.

There are even magazines aimed at people who like to turn their cars into itasha. Think about it.

OMG, who replaced all of my sponsorship stickers with Japanese animation stickers? Japan may make a good car every once in a while, but putting their own "art" on it is where I draw the line. If they were a god loving country they'd proudly display Pennzoil and Viagra, and only turn left!!!

Seriously if you don't like itasha, you have the option to keep it to yourself, and you should probably spend more time with your wife anyway with the amount of times you probably send her to the ER.
