Macross Frontier Itasha & Others

* Supposed to be up right after the first posting regarding the merchandises on display, but this second coverage of the recent Macross F Galaxy Tour Final has to make way for the 48th All Japan Plamodel Radicon Show ^^

Itahsa (痛車) as I understand it, refers to cars with plenty of stickers featuring anime characters, usually cute anime girls. I remember seeing plenty of Haruhi, and then Miku themed Itasha in the past. Not just cars, bikes and even bicycles can become Itasha as well.

Read more about Itasha on Quentin's blog.

A very nice Macross Frontier Itahsa featuring Ranka and Sheryl was on display at the recent Macross F Galaxy Tour Final (thanks to rpt011r for the translation).

There are also model kits of Itahsa, but I can't seem to be able to find any information about them though ^^;

Everyone's favorite trio of girls from Macross Frontier ^^
