The stamps in the "Anime Hero and Heroine" series are issued by Japan Post Service Co. in cooperation with the Association of Japanese Animations. The association provides anime materials and helps produce the original high-quality designs for postage stamps.

Since the stamp series began in 2005, a number of titles have been issued each year. To date, characters from popular anime series "Pokemon," "Mobile Suit Gundam" and "Neon Genesis Evangelion" have been made into stamps.

Japan Post Service Co. and the Association of Japanese Animations plan to continue the series.
