Eroge Itabus – Platonic Heart

itabus

Cars decorated with anime artwork, itasha, may be old hat, but an air of novelty still surrounds the rare ita-bus, perhaps due to the sheer amount of photoshopped buses floating around (see below for some interesting examples, especially the Shinku Liner), outnumbering the confirmed instances by far.

However, here we have a very definitely confirmed example, and it happens to be advertising a bishoujo game and mixed media franchise, 絶対衝激~プラトニックハート~ / Zettai Shougeki – Platonic Heart. Whether we can call it an actual eroge remains to be seen, although it is certainly not lacking in pretty ladies in CG form.

This via the intrepid Jabro, where you can find some more photos, as well as a Clannad itabus.

In fact the bus has video monitors installed, so it is more of a mobile hoarding than a public transport vehicle:

Shinku Liner? Some probably shopped buses for reference:

    Cool bus! It's only in Japan that we could see and ride such things!

    I saw the Platonic Hearts bus parked outside Comiket these past two days. It even has loudspeakers for the tvs.

    And of those other buses, I am sure not all are photoshopped, they're just ads like billboards or airplanes (think sea world shamoo and southwest).
    The green one I am pretty sure exists, as it's an ad for a book store, Melonbooks.

    It looks slightly sinister in my opinion.

    I suspected a couple might be real, but ones for lesser known titles, or ones which aren't advertising anything, aren't really convincing.
