After participating in the Bar Trek stories several of the authors wanted to try a new story with a more original, well, somewhat more original universe. All of us were fans of anime to some extent or other. In particular we all had a softness for Urusei Yatsura. Some of you may know that the town in which most of the crazy events that happened in Urusei Yatsura occurred in a town called Tomobiki-chou. That is where the name Ikibomot came from. Tomobiki spelled backwards. Okay, okay so it is rather silly.
Ikibomot High is a high school in the dreamy little town of Wickham on the Eastern side of Massachusetts. It is a school for talented or somehow unordinary students. They come from all over the world. Jiro, is from Japan, for instance. Markus Kessel is from Germany, and Steve is from the US. Sanders is from.. well, he seems to be from the US.
The story begins with the start of a new school year. All the old students returning from their summer vacations either with expectant hopes or with the final sigh of life before school settles on to them like a link of heavy chain. All the new students wondering just what they have gotten themselves in to, or hoping to find an escape from what they have just gotten themselves out of. Ikibomot is many of these things and more. Will they disrupt the alien monitoring station? Will Kessel ever find out what makes Sanders' car run? Will the mystery of the blue coke cans ever be solved? Find out! Well, find out after we start writing more of the damned story.
In no particular order here are the main players, and their creators who are mostly responsible for their actions and reactions:
The basic pattern of how the story is organized is that of a traditional book. There will be pages which give cross sections or detail certain parts of the story: sidebars in other words. There may be pages in the future which let you look up certain words or places whereever they may occur in the story: an index. That will come later when there is actually more story and the database system to warrant it.
