Hiroji Tani
    Hiroji Tani
    Alternate names: たにひろじ, 谷弘兒, 陰溝 蝿児
    Birthday: Unknown
    Given name: 谷弘児
    Tani Hiroji grew up near the United States military bases around Yokohama and was exposed to American comics and pulp magazines at an early age. He was particualrly influenced by the work of Hannes Bok, cover illustrator for Weird Tales and other sci-fi pulps. From his first work in Garo in 1970, Shooting Star, Tani's linework has been characterized by an attenuated, even apparitional, quality. Fantasy themes and aristocratic European settings are typical, and mark his work as a departure from what was then the Japanese alternative manga mainstream of reworked folklore, ghost stories, war memories, psychedelic reveries, and bohemian romance.

    Official Announcement

    Hi everyone,

    As you may have known, our team is working hard on a new digital comics platform that lets you enjoy comics & officially support the creators & publishers that you love. Once it’s launched in the near future, you will not be able to read content anymore on mangarock.com.

    MR Comics Membership still works normally & it will be carried over to the new platform. Your reading data (such as Favorites & Recent) will also be migrated over to the new platform. We will have more details once it’s available.

    However, please expect that more titles will be removed from this site as we comply with all content takedown requests in the upcoming periods.

    Thank you for supporting us,

    The Manga Rock team
