posted on 2016-02-12 18:45 EST by Lynzee Loveridge
Vásquez began collecting items related to his favorite television anime over 20 years ago and has amassed a collection of 6,688 items from action figures to magnets.
Vásquez's collection is nearly twice that of the previous record-holder, Ecatzin Bayardi Rosas of Mexico. Rosas was awarded the title in October, in turn replacing Vásquez, whose collection was only 1,792 items in 2014.
Vásquez works as a lawyer in Peru and is also the founder of the country's largest Saint Seiya fan club, "Athena no Seintos." His collection was featured in exhibitions and events in the region.
