If you happen to be in Tokyo between now and November 4, you could test drive an official Love Live! School idol project itasha—a car decorated with anime characters.
Two official Otonokizaka Academy concept cars will be on display at the Amlux Auto Salon in Tokyo—the Toyota 86 (known in the US as the Scion FR-S/Subaru BR-Z) and the Toyota Aqua (sold in the US as the Prius c). Naturally, both are plastered with pictures of the girls from the show, which will guarantee some head turns.
By online reservation only, fans can drive around in one of the cars for 60 minutes and 1,000 yen ($10), which also includes the cost of gas and insurance.
While in the car, the driver can listen to an original radio presentation by Sora Tokui (voice of Niko Yazawa), Riho Lida (voice of Rin Hoshizora), and Yurika Kubo (voice of Hanayo Koizumi) of μ's "Nikorinbana."
For those interested in the making of itasha, there will be a live broadcast on USTREAM on October 26 from 3 PM JST.
