Those would look kind of odd in the U.S. since we drive on the left hand side while many countries including Japan drive on the right. Also at 1st glance Mafuyu looks like she could crash into nearby cars.

Yeah, they do look odd enough to make everyone do a doubletake. But I like 'em, especially Goto. And I think Mafuyu is supposed to look like she's about to cause a wreck. Smile

$25 US is a bit much, but if they had one for, I think it was the cop from lucky star, ( Yui Narumi ? maybe it was the teacher instead? ) looking the way they did driving in that one episode, I would be strongly tempted.

To me it seems like Mafuyu pulled a parallel park by sliding in

Find it kinda funny that Mafuyu is driving in her old school uniform, instead of her teacher outfit.

Funny, I just watched that episode of Bokuben this morning. It must be fate. I might have to pick one up.

Things I absolutely don't need but definitely will be buying. Any chance to slap Goto's face on something is a chance that should be taken.

The fact that this isn't already a thing is an absolute travesty.

lol good catch..

She has been garnering quite the popularity as of late, even overshadowing some of the other main characters if you use image sites..
