ITASHA (痛車, literally “painful car”) it is a Japanese term for an otaku fad of individuals decorating the bodies of their cars with fictional characters of anime, manga, or video games. Why “painful car”? Reasoning, that it would be painfully embarrassing to drive around in one, but like Itasha drivers in Japan and all over the world, they are not embarrassed to share their passion and connect with others with the same interests. Cars most commonly found in the streets of Akihabara (Tokyo, Japan) will now be making an appearance at Animaga 2018 (Melbourne, Australia).

Plamo workshop

Plamo is plastic models including cars, military hardware and anime subjects. In 1961, a company called Aoshima produced the first Japanese plastic model in the city of Shizuoka, well before they started manufacturing wooden plane kits to be used as a teaching aid in schools. Shizuoka city is now the plamo centre of Japan, hosting the biggest industry events each year and is home to some of the top brands’ factories including Tamiya and Bandai.

Gunpla is also a popular term in Japan for Gundam models, the main mecha which appeared in the anime Mobile Suit Gundam. Gunpla refers to the line of model kits by Bandai depicting all robots from the different Gundam series. The first Gunpla was released in 1980 and sold for roughly $3. This line required glue, paints and stayed in one pose. Today it is the biggest line in the global plastic model industry. Modern kits today come pre-coloured and snap together, requiring little-to-no tools and no glue with the detailed look of an action figure.
