If you're a fan of legendary manga creator Go Nagai, then you probably know he's celebrating his 50 years as a creator. Naturally, for such an internationally beloved artist, collaborations and celebrations have been going on since last year. We already reviewed one of the many exhibitions of his work, held last fall, and even a commemorative whiskey series with Devilman labels.

Now, Japan Post is stepping up to the plate with a gorgeous deluxe set featuring "frame stamps" (Japan Post's trademarked term for a stamp sheet containing stamps and artwork), a beautiful holder to keep your stamps and a set of postcards featuring the best of Go Nagai.

The frame displays the words "Commemorating Go Nagai breaking through 50 years as a creator" at top left and the Go Nagai 50th Year Anniversary logo at top right. The artwork features the "triumvirate" of his most famous characters, Cutie Honey, Mazinger Z and Devilman, and of course, you'll find his signature there as well.

The 10 stamps (63 JPY value each) illustrate the following works:

Top Row (L to R): Meakashi Polikichi, Harenchi Gakuen, Devilman, Mazinger Z, Dororon Enma-kun.

Bottom Row (L to R): Cutie Honey, Legend of Shutendoji, Violence Jack, Susano Oh, Composite of characters from Go Nagai's works.

Stamp Holder

The stamp holder is composed of three folding panels. On the front side, you'll find the same artwork from the stamp sheet featuring Cutie Honey, Mazinger Z and Devilman, superimposed on an exciting collage of manga frames from some of Go Nagai's most beloved works.

On the back, fans will find a useful bibliography of Go Nagai's works, along with a place to insert the stamp sheet.

Post Cards

In addition, the set includes a collection of 10 postcards with artwork representing the same works featured in the stamps.

Note: Design may change

How to order

The set is available until March 18th and costs 3,980 JPY, including tax and delivery fees within Japan. You can visit any post office and order from their catalog or visit Japan Post's online store here.

If you live in Japan, your purchase will be delivered between March 18th and 28th if you purchase before February 17th and between April 25th and May 2nd if you purchase between February 18th and March 18th.

If you live outside of Japan, it will take a bit longer as you'll need to go through a forwarding service such as Tenso or White Rabbit Express, since they only deliver to Japanese addresses.
