Continuing our coverage on this year’s Nico Nico Chokaigi conference, this time we take a look at the all the “itasha” which was on display. Itasha is the practice of covering your car, motorbike, push bike or anything with wheels, in decals featuring anime, manga or gaming characters.
One of the extremely popular sections at the conference was the “ItaG Fest Shucchou-hen in Nico Nico Chokaigi 2, which saw in excess of 60 cars and other assorted vehicles on wheels.

Not everyone’s cup of tea but Japandaman HQ are huge fans of itasha even though some people may think it looks “rice”, the cars look unique and show the owner’s passion.
