Some itachari, and a quite origin of the itasha.
Cars decorated with manga/anime and video game characters first appeared in Japan during the ’80s, but after 2000 they became a real phenomenon. They are called itasha, a term that originally meant “Italian car” (because during the ’80s Italian cars were known as stylish), but now it is written 痛車, which means “pain cars"… because they are painfully expensive…

However, there are also less expensive solutions for the fans. Since in Japan the bicycles are very popular, it is only natural that the itasha two-wheeled equivalent is also available: meet the itachari (chari means bicycle), spectacularly adorned bikes. If you’re wondering, the characters on these itachari photographed in Akihabara, Tokyo, are from the Idolmaster video game.

I sort of like the simple nature of the WIP by +Otaku chee.  Perhaps even more than the final completed version:

Working on a Sorairo Muffler fanart, they look badass in After Rain Quest !
Thanks Saine xD

#figurefriday  : Momohime.

When it comes to detail, I don't think much beats Momohime for me.  She's relatively an old figure, and the new ones coming out nowadays are remarkable packed with details and designs of their own, but I think she still stands up well.  The whole aesthetic works well on her and the design details, everything from the wrapping on the scabbard, the handle of the blade, the blade itself, her shoulder armor, the obi, wafuku, flower in her hair, zoori, the sculpt choice for the base, her leggings... the list goes on, are packed with details.

Each time I take a photo of her, I can appreciate seeing her details up close and I'm still amazed how much I like this figure, my very first one (, from just about 4 years ago.

I'm sure if I understood some music theory, there would be a nice and simple explanation as to why things like this work so well together.

I feel like they're altered a little to match beats, but I didnt quite look closely either :P

+takashi kitajima does a lot of these really bokeh dof shots, and I think this one is one of the nicer ones.  Like a cloud of marbles surrounding the Sky Tree.

I thought of the method of fully acquiring exposure time. Because I wanted to try it, I decided to photograph it experimentally in the nearest observation deck from the office only for 30 minutes.

I'll be posting mostly about animemanga or figures.  There may be some deviations from that from time to time, but those will be the primary things I'll be posting about.

I circle many, but I usually follow just a handful of folks who post good content (as shown in my "People" section).  The others are in muted topic circles that I frequent once in a while to see what's new.

So if I don't happen to see a post you made that you think would interest me, feel free to mention me :).

Quick Links:

I'm trying out a few communities to help gather my interests into one spot.  Feel free to join and contribute to them!

Interpretations and Reviews:

Best Anime For#bestanimefor
Just a collection asking folks to name some interesting anime that fits the posted topic.

If I enjoyed...#sharethejoy
A poor man's recommendation engine to solicit some similar anime from the community.  Perhaps you'll find them interesting to.  So, if you enjoyed:

Share with us your considerations for various exemplary archetypes.

Share it Forward: #shareitforward
