The original characters of HANGRY&ANGRY were illustrated by GASHICON. The two characters HANGRY and ANGRY were drawn in the “gurokawa” (grotesque/cute) style and this transitions to real life in the musical unit. According to their story, the two characters traveled from their home in the H44 Star Nebula in their “LOVE MACHINE” time-travel device. Coming back in time, their mission is to save present day Earth from global warming.
