|commemorative stamps: how do they chose these things?
||[Sep. 1st, 2009|06:56 am]
There's an anime hero heroine series of stamps that's been coming out since 2005, and this October the 11th one will be released. Guess which anime? Naruto! I read about it on the blog of one of the writers I stalk, hoping they will update their WIPs...
In any case, it's interesting to see what the first ten were:
2. Gundam (the original one)
3. Galaxy Express 999
4. Meitantei Conan
6. Mirai shonen Conan
7. Manga Nihon Mukashibanashi
9. Gegege no Kitaro
Pics of the stamps are online here.
Why Meitantei Conan twice? Because it ran so damn long? Seems silly to do one anime twice when there are other choices out there. And why Naruto? I didn't know it was so popular in Japan as to merit being put on stamps.
Even though I don't remember watching any episode of Manga nihon mukashibanashi (my mom tells me I used to see it often), as soon as I saw the title the opening song popped into my head. Very, very memorable.
