Overview

Patty and Ruby, the two zany American teenagers who took jobs at a Tokyo maid cafe and skyrocketed to fame as pop stars in the first volume of "Moe USA," thought they had it made: a great career, tons of fans, and the cutest outfits a cosplayer could ever dream of! And then the unthinkable happened — their magical maid costumes were stolen just before a big concert at Tokyo's Budokan.

Now the girls are in a topsy-turvy search for the costumes. They've enlisted the services of a super-secret organization — the Akihabara Otaku Agency — to help them track down the thief and rescue their careers. But have the moe-licious maids met their match?

"Moe USA" is an original magical-girl manga written and illustrated Atsuhisa Okura, whose credits include the award-winning "Manga Conquers America" article that appeared in the November 2008 issue of WIRED magazine.
