Hello again everyone! This is Shiro coming to you once again with another Banmoku update!
Sorry for not replying to comments and replies. They end up getting buried and with two cons so close to each other, we were a bit pressed for time. We’ll work on getting through all of them and responding.
Thank you to everyone who came to see us at Anime Impulse and Beachcon! It was great to meet so many new people and catch up with familiar faces. On top of it all, we got some amazing new art for really talented artists!
You can check some of them out on Banmoku’s official twitter: twitter.com/banmoku .
Our next con is going to be Anime Expo in July, (I’ll be attending this one too, I’m excited to finally be able to help out at the cons and be able to meet all of you!) This is our big con so we’ll be preparing in full force in the months leading up to it. We’ll bring you guys updates here and on twitter (make sure to follow us if you haven’t already) about where to find us and previews of new stuff as we get closer to the con, stay tuned!
We’re also open to suggestions about what fanart you’d like to see from us. We’re planning on creating more art for Overwatch, Pokémon, Mob 100, Haikyuu, as well as Mystic Messenger, but we’d love to here what else you all would be interested in. Feel free to leave a comment below!
Other business, The Art Book! Don’t worry, we haven’t forgot about it. Okunome is working hard on all of the featured pieces, but we’ll keep you in the loop about its progress and about some specialty packages we might be offering along with it. Thank you all who made pieces for the artbook, we appreciate your hard work and you are more than welcome to adjust or change your piece while we’re still working. Just send us a note and let us know.
Now that business is out of the way, we can talk about something super fun!
With the creation of so many fun and interesting fanzines, we’ve decided the world needs more monster girls. Banmoku will be curating its own monster girl focused fanzine that you are encouraged to try out for! As with all fanzines, space will be limited so please don’t feel bad if you don’t get picked depending on how many people try out. For right now, we’re still trying to iron out the exact details, but if you’re interested, you’re more than welcome to leave a comment below with any questions or suggestions that you might have.
We’ll be making a journal as well as posting it on twitter with forms when we’re ready to start accepting applications, hopefully in the next few weeks.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at AX and so is the rest of the crew~!
