What is Itasha?

Itasha (痛車), literally "painmobile", is a Japanese term for an otaku fad of individuals decorating the bodies of their cars with fictional characters of animemanga, or video games(especially bishōjo game or eroge). These characters are predominately "cute" female. The decorations usually involve paint schemes and stickers. Automobiles are called Itasha, while similar motorcycles and bicycles are called itansha (痛単車) and itachari (痛チャリ), respectively.

Team LoveHATE has been dubbed the "Western Revolution of Itasha" since their inception in 2006

Team LoveHATE Code of Conduct.

Like all clubs. Team LoveHATE members must adhere to a code of conduct. While we are not out to police, a basic foundation MUST be followed. This keeps a good standing image among the general public. A simple thing to keep in mind is, Once a club has gotten a reputation for having unruly members, it is virtually impossible to rid it's self of that. This drags the entire club and its members down, Which could and in most cases would result in loss of sponsorship, membership and lead to a down fall of the club. These simple rules are not flexible nor is the committee on them ! If you break them your membership could be terminated.The following are strictly prohibited!
These rules are generally reserved for club events, and may also apply if caught by either a Executive member or fellow member if done outside a club event and is a serious offense.

1. Fighting ( physically or verbally ) with a fellow member or anyone else during events.

2. Dangerous, reckless driving during a club event, on public roads, parking lots, or fields. Keep it cool and to a race track ! This includes excessive speeding, burnouts (unless specified event), donuts, ect.

3. Engaging in a verbal argument with a sponsor. A committee member will handle any sponsor problems.

4. Stealing, damaging someone's property, vandalism. Destruction of private property etc.
