Itasha runs right and left at Akihabara

Itasha is a car-decorating culture that is popular at Akihabara, the heart of Japanese geeky cultures.
itasha (痛車) literally means "painful car". But what feels pain is not the car itself, but the hearts of someone who sees the car.
Itai (痛い) is used as slang word that means a situation someone who focuses exclusively on a single or limited goal or point of view.
For example, if someone really loves an anime character and collect all the goods of the character and decorate his/her room with these goods, he/she is such an itai person.

Therefore, itasha means a car that is decorated in anime or some geeky characters because the owner really loves that character.
Ordianally people feels uneasy and creepy with that car's appearance, but the owner is so delighted with his/her car.

In this article, let's take a look at some photos of these Itashas.

    I'm pretty sure the ISIS car is an edited photo... It's also kinda NSFW. Well, this whole page is sort of not suitable for work...

    Speaking about NSFW, this one is ingenious:
