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: http://www.quocard.com/ (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.
