(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 11:02 Feb. 07, 2010)
By now any self-respecting otaku must be familiar with itasha(painmobile) and itachari(paincycle). We've heard of ita-PC and even ita-furnitures, but a whole building adorned with bishojo characters might be pushing it a bit too far...
Aoshima Bunka Kyozai known for their various itasha plastic models unveiled their ita-danchi models of housing complex featuring K-On! characters at Wonder Festival 2010 Winter, which may or may not give ideas to anime-obsessed landlords.
