Nanoha and Fate Itasha

October 6, 2009

Spotted these images of truly impressive Itasha done in “Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS” style on otaku extraordinaire Danny Choo’s blog.

Itasha (痛車, い たしゃ) which literally means ‘painful car’ are cars adorned with various decals of anime or eroge characters, from several simple stickers to complete customized decals covering the entire hood, side or roof.


While some Itasha that I have seen images of in the past have been decent to excellent conversions, these two “Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS” styled racing cars of which you see the Fate themed one above are truly astounding!

These particular Itasha are not just limited to large decals, but feature complete customized paint jobs in colors fitting Fate and Nanoha respectively, full car body decals of the characters, even the rims were colored to match the rest of the car.

Love the Nanoha one as well, what impresses me is how they went all out on them and took care of every single detail.


Even otaku or car aficionados who feel little for such anime style cars will no doubt admit that for Itasha, these are impressively well done. They even give the Good Smile Racing Itasha a run for its money.

These photos were taken at a recent Itasha event that took place in Odaiba, you can see more photos of other such adorned cars at Sensei’s blog or at Danny Choo.

Wonder if these two “Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS” ones are for sale? They’re right hand drive though…

    Nicely done, but I don’t think I can drive this to work.
