Manga Reborn Launches a Kickstarter to Translate 10 Manga Titles

Manga Reborn, a website that allows users to legally read manga digitally in English and Japanese, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to translate 10 manga titles into English and distribute them digitally through their website. All of the titles in the campaign have never been published in English. In the Kickstarter campaign, they say donations “will be used to find and recruit the best localization team, contact authors, license new manga, and turn this manga into digital content.”

The 10 manga included in the campaign are:

  • New Give My Regards to Black Jack by Shuho Sato (70 chapters)
  • Black Angels by Shinji Hiramatsu (158 chapters)
  • Shagara by Kiyoshi Haraguchi (43 chapters)

Manga Reborn hopes to raise US$6,000 by November 3, 2013 at 2:40 a.m. EST. As of this writing, the campaign has raised US$386.
