Rust-Eater Bisco

Summary: A plague-like wind blows across the arid, sandy expanse of post-apocalyptic Japan. As it sweeps over the living and nonliving alike, rust is all that remains in its wake. The cause of the catastrophic state of the world is believed to be mushroom spores. Bisco Akaboshi, known as the "Man-Eating Mushroom," is a wanted criminal archer whose arrows instantly grow mushrooms wherever they land. However, he is in reality a "Mushroom Protector," a person who spreads fungi in order to enrich the land and return it to its previous state.

The MangaOne catalog (including Kengan Omega etc.) will have a temporarily limited app availability, currently restricted to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, while the company works on getting worldwide approval for the MangaOne content. Regardless, the MangaOne catalog is still available to read worldwide via the Comikey website.

The company plans to release new comics worldwide regularly on both the app and the website.
