Hideko Mizuno (born 1939), herself a tomboy, disliked the melodramatic "mother" stories described earlier, and instead pursued fantasy (Harp of the Stars, 1960), westerns ("Red Pony," 1956), and comedy (Honey-Honey's Wonderful Adventure, 1966). She was also the only woman cartoonist to live (in 1958)in the now-famous Tokiwaso Apartments that became a (literally) low-rent Mecca for struggling young artists who would go on to define the style of the modern manga. The more famous residents included Ishimori, Hiroshi Fujimoto (1933-1996) & Motoh Abiko (born 1934)--a pair better known by the pen name "Fujiko Fujio", Fujio Akatsuka (born 1935), and Jiro Tsunoda (born 1936), as well as animator Shinichi Suzuki (born 1933).
