‘ITA SHA( 痛車)the unconditional, limitless love’
I came across the ITA SHA in AKIHABARA, the popular geeks sanctuary.
ITA means’ painful, shameful’ ,
SHA means’ car’.
Anime and manga fan decorate and wrap their car by the favorite anime and manga characters , show their unconditional and limitless love for them.
So ITA SHA is kinda self-deprecatory saying by anime and manga fan people.
You can see them often in AKIHABARA and also the anime and manga conventions in Tokyo and Japan .
AKIHABARA is originally the electric parts and gadgets tiny store’s town after WW2, has gradually changed 1970s as the PC, phone parts town , then changed again as the game, toys , anime , manga figures town . This town is always changing following the local people’s interest .
