"This is a blog about Ginga series (a fan blog, more or less)
But also Yoshihiro Takahashi and his work as ; Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, Yamato, Fang , Giant, Densetsu Weed, Orion, and others.
So the blog is more a way for me to write about my passion, perhaps addiction in my life : )
There are talk, theory, ideas .So I don't clam to be an expert , I'm just Ginga insane and like to talk, write. Perhaps we together on the blog can find clues, theory, idea's about the merchandise, item's. And bring more lights on things"
! Beware !
The Blog site can give out spoilers (I will warn aswell) And I can also write about topic that can have violence, bloody contain.
Many of
Yoshihiro Takahashi can hold such theme & contain. But I probably will warn at the start on the blog, is that is necessary.
Other then that there are just my thought and ideas as a ginga insane collector ; )

Phone & Tosho Cards

 Note that this is some I have learn from Japanese sites, source and what some contact what told.
So like I have said before; this is talk, theory, ideas

There have been talk about telephone,phone card's and how people can be confused with this tosho cards.
To be true this were confusing for me too at first.
So this is what I have learned so far
I had never heard about those tosho card until I got one.
It most have been : Ginga Densetsu Weed Tosho Card
At the date 9/6 -2011 . When I got this one 

Weed Tosho  card. That were Prize item for 200 readers of Ginga Densetsu Weed World.

So what is tosho card's ?
Well Tosho card is some kind of payment cards bookstores in Japan.
But what I heard you can buy pens, notebooks or other things

With the The Edition of  2006-2007; Ginga Nagareboshi Gin manga there were Tosho card as well

Some of mine GNG tosho card's

On the card's and back you can see stamp/text: QUO, QUO 500

You can see as well on the web site address:  (Japanese) 
"QUO card  is gift certificate is common nationwide (prepaid card) "

So about the telephone,phone card's  then ?
Well take a look at those that I have :Kacchû no senshi Gamu  Ginga Nagareboshi Gin phone card .
On the back on the cards you can see text in both Japanese and English

Kacchû no senshi Gamu telephone card from  the year 1988 And the Ginga Nagareboshi Gin telephone card, the image are from the wolf  manga edition (phone edition)

"This card is for Card/Coin Telephone in Japan. It is worth 50 call units"

I Have hear that even The manga Edition of  2000 -2001 (more of the telephone edition)  had some phonecard, tosho, library cards.

Shonen Jump release telephone cards over the years:
Great Horse, Lassie, Ginga Nagareboshi Gin,Kacchû no senshi Gamu and others

I think I have seen a other Ginga Densetsu Weed tosho card or if that were telephone card but that were a time ago.
