Itasha

Itashas are the ultimate proof of a true anime fan!

Whether it’s a sports car, motorcycle or mini – they exist in all sorts of variations!

In Japan, there has long been a trend among hardcore fans to decorate cars with favorite characters. The Network of German and European Itasha e.V. was founded in 2015 with the aim of bringing Itasha owners together and sharing experiences across Europe. Since then, the scene has been growing steadily and the group organizes exhibitions in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland. They are also already known beyond Europe and have been featured several times in a Japanese Itasha magazine.

 


At FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con you can experience the members’ Itashas and talk to them about their passion for these great cars.
