"BANG! BANG! BANG!"
The Ippongi Bang Homepage
It's Manga Artist Extraordinare Ippongi Bang--Manga Empress of All the Asias!!
You've probably seen me somewhere, in Toei Video Cinema, on the big screen, TV, radio, motorcycles, costumeplay,
my diary manga, my boy's manga, or maybe it was in an adult video? I'm sure it was somewhere, but hey, whether
you know me or not, as one pal (one GAINAX pal? ) to another, here's to getting to know you!! After all, I'm the
lonely type, so I'm always looking for friends!
I went to Hong Kong and Thailand over New Year's. In February, I went to Seattle (my hometown), LA (one of my dad's friends there is an action director on Power Rangers), Miami, Quito, the Galapagos (which is where I've wanted to go ever since I was a little girl), La Paz and Santa Cruz. April saw me in Hong Kong again.
That was my honeymoon: crisscrossing North and South America a year after my wedding (though naturally I was also doing story research). The rest of my travels, though, were all strictly research work, and I had a blast!!
I'm doing some guidebook research in Taiwan (fairly long) during June and July, and then I'll be back in the States, specifically Virginia, come August. I've been invited to be a guest at a manga/anime convention--and its name is OTAKON(!!).
I know it looks like I'm awfully busy, but the two magazines I had serializations in both went belly-up in April, and I'm still recovering from the shock! I'm running around frantically shouting things like " Unemployment?! Eeeeek!!!! Somebody send me some work!!"
Well anyway, I'll be following up with additional reports.
Oh yeah, send me your messages, questions, opinions (about my CD-ROM or my manga!!)
It'd be cool if we could get a Reader's Page or something like it going around here...
Yours, Ippongi Bang
