Introducing the Anno Moyoko Complete Works Translation Project!

We're going to deliver Anno Moyoko's works to the world through the power of the fans!

Anno Moyoko is an outstanding mangaka, a unique representative author of Japanese comics.

The Five Buffalo Girls

In the tiny, run-down villages that tattoo this dusty expanse, there exist girls who have been sold to brothels. Day in and day out, they battle with men's sexual desire while they try to come to terms with their own feelings and sentiments. Even prostitutes fall in love, you know. There are men who fall in love with them, too...but the freedom to love who one wishes doesn't exist in whorehouses. "Love or life. Choose one."
"I choose love."
"But if you die, then you can't love anyone."
In a world rampant with sex and violence, how can these girls survive? One day, Candy and Suzy decide to risk their lives and escape the brothel, all for the sake of the freedom they've never had.
"We're actually stronger than this."
"I can hear a voice deep within my body...telling me to listen to my instincts!"

Manga Reborn is a community built around the mission of increasing worldwide fans of Japanese manga artists.
Lately, fans of Japanese manga have been increasing all around the world, but since only a limited selection of manga is available in their countries, many illegal sites with uploaded copies of Japanese manga have been popping up all over the internet. We would like to proactively fight these sites, which waste the true potential of many excellent manga series, by releasing Japanese manga to the world in a way that empowers both the artists and the fans.
While supporting artists in a way that has been never possible before, we're also working to create a legal place in which manga can be easily acquired by everyone, worldwide, and also create a community for fans who love manga. Through supporting manga and artists in this way, we hope to eliminate the illegal trends that have become connected with online manga, and create a new positive movement that every manga fan and author in the world can be a part of.
But we need your support to do this!
Let's work hard together to create an international environment where a whole new age of Japanese manga can come to life!



MANGA REBORN is developed, administered, and run by BPS. BPS is stationed in Japan (Shinjuku, Tokyo) and has worked together with publishers and printing companies to develop E-book viewing system applications, E-bookstore applications, E-book DRM, and E-book quality rendering engines.
MANGA REBORN was developed as a response to the fact that there is only a small amount of very popular manga being spread out to the world from Japan. We feel that there is a large amount of interesting manga that has yet to leave Japan, so we are working hard to introduce readers around the world to a wider variety of quality manga.
We translate authors' works and receive authorization to distribute it worldwide, and then make connections with the fans through user-generated translations and scanlations in order to build MANGA REBORN into a worldwide infrastructure.
