Um, wow. I have my own credit cards, but none of them look like THIS! FUNimation has made an announcement that they will be launching a prepaid credit card system this month, sporting designs from popular shows such as Sgt. Frog, Afro Samurai: Resurrection, Soul Eater, Fruits Basket and 
Tsubasa Reservoire Chronicles. They also mention on the FUNi blog that new designs will be added over time, so don't be heartbroken if you don't see you favorite show represented here just yet.
 
It's also cool that you can get something like this to feed your anime habit even if you are under the age of 18 (they are available for ages 13-17 with parental permission). It's only open to the US and Canada right now, though, so you may have to be patient if you live outside of those areas.
 
Head here to sign up for updates on the cards and be notified once they become available. I don't know about you, but I want that Sgt. Frog card! Which would you choose?

Yes! I was expecting to get a Visa card for my birthday next year, but now I cant' even wait. I don't even know what design to choose from.

Yeah..cuz why would someone have pointy teeth and white hair? Let alone a black man with a sword! Scary stuff that they would prob think is fake.

Anything that draws attention to your credit card is a bad thing in my book.

I have real cards already.  My daughter would just eat it because it's colorful.  Plus I only kinda like the Fruits Basket one so nothing interesting to me.  
 
Though I'm glad you youngins can have access to them. ;)

They should have this design on those cards: 
 

 "Buy Our Products Freaks!!"
 "Buy Our Products Freaks!!"

@hitsusatsu11:
If that was on my card I'd have a good laugh everytime I looked at it. I would want the line "It's over 9,000!!!" along it though.

@sotyfan16: Why have the Over 9000 line? Sabat didn't create that meme it was Brian Drummond of Ocean Studios.

@hitsusatsu11:
It's a fun line and it goes with the picture.

@sotyfan16: Its a good line, though Sabat failed at his version.

Could always go with this: 

150,000! Unreal!
