Miku Itasha? That’s pretty normal right now… But a race-car Miku Itasha? Now THAT’s amazing! How did it come to this? Well, thanks to dtshyk, here’s the translated dialog…
Chief: “Does anyone have a novel idea for the team concept?”
Manager Kiyo-san: “How about ‘Itasha’?”
Jun-san: “Which character should we choose?”
Kiyo-san: “The licence handling will be troublesome if we choose ‘Haruhi Suzumiya no Yuutsu’ or ‘Lucky Star’ or ‘THE iDOLM@STER'”.
Ue-san: “Why not Hatsune Miku!”
Kiyo-san: “Good idea! We can celebrate her birthday by GT racing!
