Itasha 痛車 Product Introduction

Our new product line is about to launch on the site, so here is an introduction post on what it's going to be!

To start, what exactly is Itasha? Literal translation from japanese 痛車 means 'painful car'. To explain better - it's a car decorated with images of fictional characters from anime, manga, or video games. These characters are most often cute female characters, but it's not strictly limited to that. The 'painful' aspect is often used in otaku culture. It's overdecorating to the point that it becomes painful to look at!

We are gonna stray away from the 'painful' image and provide more clean and fresh designs of your favorite characters! Here are some preview images of the designs that we've been working on so far. We've been teasing this release for the past week on our instagram account too:
