Taipei, Oct. 23 (CNA) The PHILATAIPEI 2016 World Stamp Championship Exhibition, under the theme of 201610230007t0001comics and anime on its third day, was a big hit among young audiences Sunday, who enjoyed the combination of philately and anime.

Some of the people thronging the expo said they were impressed by a series of events designed to rejuvenate the image of postal services using comics and anime, including an illustration contest, a mini anime, comic and games concert, and a cosplay party.

Checking the details of the winning anime design offerings inspired by postal services, 13-year-old twins Hsu An-hua (徐安驊) and Hsu Yi-hua (徐宜驊) from Taoyuan said they had seen nothing like this before.
