What is BUBU?
BUBU is a completely free expression magazine for a new global era. This magazine consists of manuscripts that are freely written by a different person per page. BUBU hopes to provide to its readers the opportunity to discover various new values and ideas in the 21st century in which we live; a time of increase globalization. We value every opinion delivered to us, as we believe there are as many lives as there are contributors. It is thrilling to encounter not only with a one-way superiority value, but also with those who live in a world entirely different from yours. This magazine would like to continue to be a chaotic magazine where people with various ethnic groups, religions, minorities, thoughts or talents, ordinary people, and interesting people like you can coexist. ※ ‘Chaotic’ means based on Natural thought of Oriental Taoism.
