Bento Books is a publishing company specializing in translations of Japanese fiction. Founding members are Alexander O. Smith and Joseph Reeder of Kajiya Productions, Inc. and Tony Gonzalez of Mini-Oni, LLC.
Bento Books was founded to bring contemporary Japanese fiction to new audiences with an emphasis on titles overlooked by traditional publishers. Our focus on eBook and print-on-demand solutions, combined with social media marketing, enable us to bring titles to market with maximum exposure and minimum risk. Japan is a cultural juggernaut, yet the vast majority of its novels and manga remain inaccessible to the English-speaking world. We believe that with an excellent translation, many of these hidden gems could thrive in the West.
