First Ayanami Rei on a car, then moe characters on a ferry, and now lolis on a taxi car. Japan sure love their anime.

Yep, I think it's now official, bit by bit, slowly but surely, Japan is turning into Anime/Otaku/Moe Land (>_<)

-- I'm looking for "The One" and I'll find her more quickly if I audition two at a time. Think you can do better? --

Here's the comment I made in sankaku:

Wow, that's quite an old Toyota. Looks like an late 80s-early 90s model. Looks like a Crown or Cressida, but not really either of the two. Hmm....


lol

Hells yeah, they can pimp my ride. Got some more chars for them to use too. How about Victoria from Gosick? How about Tomoyo and Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura? Yui from Angel Beats!? The student council from Seitokai no Ichizon? I could go on almost forever...
I had a real signature.... but I got tired of it. What should I change it to now?

That could've gone wrong in so many different ways. Fortunately, it hit them all.

Haha, how cute ^^ Again with the ferry thing though, it's sad that Japan has to resort to something like that to ride a taxi.

I'm sure they will get a few extra customers just for the character cards.
