I'm a stamp collecting nerd. I love stamps and tend to focus on Japan and China with an emphasis on art and culture. Lately there's also been many releases of Anime related stamps and I'm trying to find some of those as well.

A friend of mine managed to snag a set of anime stamps and sent me the pic. Now he wants to start collecting stamps as well just for the anime and manga related releases.



Got me to wondering how many other people tie their love of anime and manga in to their other activities? Lots of us have continued or taken up our Japanese language studies because of it. But anyone also see it creep in to their hobbies?

The post did a great job choosing some nice frames. I've also seen Naruto and Astroboy, I think Gigantor and someone mentioned to me they have Fairy Tail and more One Piece coming out.

well, as for me, a lot of what i write is anime inspired. either fan fiction, or origonal works that could be a straight up anime. lots of strong female leads, super powers, ect.
i love ti work on cars, and that too has anime inspiration creeping in.
anime and its related inspiration is what gets me through the day.

I collect blades. I began with fine kitchen knives I saw being forged in Taiwan. I learned to sharpen and bought my own waterstones. I moved on to swords and also now collect Japanese blades. Favorite structure is hon-sanmai. Hard steel sandwiched between two sides of softer steel, with a medium steel backing.
