«Reborn / Sono Hi Made» is a CD single released by the Muratani Sisters.
It is sold exclusively at their live event at their "Muratani Todoro no Enshuai" (むらたに☆とどるの恩楽会) event at Shinjuku Loft with no plans of a general distribution. The live event is a one-night only, featuring MUG-ROCK & NOCCHI as the opening act and with NEW ROTE'KA and Gyoko as special guests. Ohtani has worked closely with several of these artists for her other releases. MUG-ROCK did several of the remixes on her three first solo singles, Nocchi has written lyrics for her song "Call Me Pop", and NEW ROTE'KA, Gyoko and Ohtani usually perform at the same events. NEW ROTE'KA collaborated with Melon Kinenbi in 2009 on their single "Pinch wa Chance Baka ni Narou ze!".
Merchandise from the event was later (in April) made available for purchase at an online store Ohtani created. She also sold apparel (sweaters and hoodies) and self knitted oven clothes (small squares made of yarn).
