    Itasha - "painful car" (NSFW)

    Itasha. Literally translated to mean "painful car".

    Itasha is what happens when you combine people obsessed with manga, anime and video games (referred to as otaku) with unsuspecting cars.

    Spot on. The pink S2K in 2 Fast 2 Furious was surely inspired by this movement.

    Can't say i really knew there was a movement for this, i thought it was just the odd car that appeared at a meet in Japan - but Justin's first pic looks like theres more than 1!

    Where does the connection tie in from anime to someones car? Usually car mods are performed to make them more ... car-ish .. faster, more comfortable, or to accentuate the lines

    I guess here the car is just a blank canvas for a moving artwork?

    Read up on the Wiki guys, seems like it's been around since the 80's in Japan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itasha
