Mazinger Angels / Iron Muscle
Manga Muscle Girls ( 漫画の筋肉娘 / Manga no Kinniku Musume )



It’s two-for-one day at Manga Muscle Girls!  Got a lead from a japanese blog entry which showed a nice image of another manga muscle girl.  I came across that link awhile ago, but couldn’t find anything back then.  After creating a guide to ebookjapan, I decided to try again and searched ebookjapan.  I was surprised to find the manga.  Encouraged by the success, I started hunting around for more information about the character.  

Sakurako Honou 「炎桜子」 is a character created by Go Nagai 「永井豪」, the author famous for creating Devilman and Cutey Honey among other works.  His characters frequently appear in multiple series.  Sakurako Honou first appeared as a love interest for the main character in a series called  Iron Muscle 「アイアンマッスル」, and reappeared as a trainer for the gals in Mazinger Angels 「マジンガーエンジェル」 drawn by Akihiko Niina 「新名昭彦」.  She appears in Mazinger Angels Vol 3 and there’s quite a few nice panels featuring her.  The pic from that original blog entry also comes from this volume.  Here’s a few samples for you:

She first shows up in Volume 3 of Iron Muscle, and that volume features a few naked shots of her.  She doesn’t show up that frequently in the series, unfortunately.  Here’s the few pages that she appears in from Volumes 4 & 5:

I hope that the character will show up in some more works in the future.  As always, if you found this post useful please leave a comment.  Hearing from the community, even if it’s just a word or two, helps keep me motivated to share my findings.  Have something that you think I should include in Manga Muscle Girls?  Just post a comment in that journal entry and I’ll add it to my list.  Thanks for reading.

None of the images seem to be showing up.  Is there any way to see them?

Its too bad Go isnt the greatest artist. Because I really like his writing. Violence Jack being one of my favourite mangas. I was actually once considering paying a translator to translate it and then buy the japanese books so I could read em.
elee0228's avatar
I agree with you there. I gotta remember to add Violence Jack to the list of manga to write about since there is a buff female in it.

Nice. You should have marked it NSFW though. :)

Looks like a color/edit of one of the pages in the manga. Really cool. :)
El-Quanjugono's avatar
sorry bout that, didn't think you'd mind. Next time I'll be more mindful of marking links NSFW if you'd like me to.
elee0228's avatar
I don't mind, but some of the others who click on the link when reading the comments might. :)

grat style and work with anatomy, i like so much
elee0228's avatar
I think the art in Mazinger Angels is better than the work in Iron Muscle. At least, I like it better. :)
nekolab's avatar
your journals entries encourage me to training more about muscle anatomy , ^^
elee0228's avatar
Hehe, I'm glad it has that positive affect on you. Your art is really good, but definitely is improving with more focus on the anatomy. I really like how the Chun-Li pic is coming along. :)
