- What's "itasha"?

"Itasha", the latest trend of the world-class Japanese nerd culture has been now packed as an iPad photo collection. The photographer Tomoyuki Sakaguchi took pictures of cars belonging to 22 itasha lovers who decorated each vehicle with their favorite anime/manga/game characters. All the pictures seem taken in a photo studio. However, these are taken in a parking lot at night with 9 small strobe lights only. The application features high-quality "itasha pictures" taken by Sakaguchi along with interesting stories of each itasha car and its owner. The anime drawings are applied to cars and they're now part of a 3 dimensional reality, but Sakaguchi managed to bring them back to their 2 dimensional world.
