Shigesato Itoi, Giygas, and Boobies
November 16th, 2013 | Events
The other day I posted about the EarthBound Baaaash, a big event in about two weeks that will definitely be a lot of fun for EarthBound fans.
Little by little, the Fangamer guys have been revealing guests and other stuff that’s going to be happening at the event. Here are some of the recent reveals:
It was probably pretty obvious that I was gonna take part in the EB Baaaash, so I got revealed first 😛 With all the million EarthBound projects I’ve done, I might be able to offer some interesting tidbits of info, or at least I can answer some questions for viewers!
(I’m mostly going for the free food but don’t tell them that)
Chewy works with the Fangamer guys on a regular basis, so she’ll be at the EB Baaaash too!
If you’ve ever read any translated Itoi interviews before, she was most likely the translator. She also helped out a bit with the MOTHER 3 translation. She also translated the MOTHER 2 novel, and who knows, maybe she’ll read excerpts from it during the event! She also works for Itoi’s company, Hobonichi, and always has plenty of interesting stories to share…
But beware! She’s always inundated by requests to say this and this to Itoi or get Itoi to do this or this, so don’t annoy her too much or she’ll turn into a she-devil ala THERE IS NO DANA ONLY ZUUL
I’m also secretly hoping that if this EB Baaaash does well enough, maybe next year we can have a MOTHER 3 Baaaash and then get Jeffman down here too. And then we can talk about fluffy omelets.
Anyway, moving on!
Fangamer wants you to draw new art! They’ll share it during the event and talk about it and kiss it. If you make fan art, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org… or snail mail it to Fangamer here!

You can also send letters, postcards, or packages of stuff if you want! I hear they really need a new vacuum cleaner and they’ve been really good kids this year. Or cleaning supplies. Or Hostess fruit pies. Mmm I’ll just take those for myself
There are actually a lot more guests in store, as well as more fun stuff and some eye-poppingly awesome stuff that’s going to happen during the Baaaash. So keep an eye out on the official site here as more things get revealed!
A question I’ve been getting
A few people have asked me if they can attend the Baaaash in person too – I’m actually not in charge of it at all, so you’d need to ask the Fangamer guys. From what I hear, there’s already going to be so many people that the logistics are on the verge of turning insane.
That said, I’ve been pitching the idea of a genuine EarthBound convention here for a while now, so maybe in the future there might be an actual convention… except I’m not really sure what such a thing would entail, since I’ve been to only like one tiny anime convention in my life. But if anyone has ideas or suggestions, let me know!
