Ore No Imouto Monorail, Chiba

Now why can’t all monorail or public transport for that matter look this good and inviting? The monorail you see below decked out itasha style is from the region known as Chiba and it’s all for the new season of OreImo that is forthcoming.

The Chiba Urban Monorail have taken part in the promotions to remind fans not to miss out and tune in as the show will be screening across Japan shortly. What a great way to remind fans by making it something memorable?

Anyone else have anything this fancy where they come from?
