Baby, ain’t it something
How we’ve lasted this long
Shousetsu Bang*Bang
Proving everyone wrong
It’s Issue 80
Full of mismatched bookends
Thank the creators
And tell all of your friends!

Some take two steps forward
Some take two steps back
This is the issue
Where opposites attract!

And you know–in this fiction
Hides a natural fact:
Shousetsu Bang*Bang
Queer opposites attract!
