    Izumi Aso debuted in the early 1980s in Margaret Magazine with "NY de dokkiri!". As a manga artist, Aso focused on the style of drawing that gives the impression that the drawn figures are going to pop out of the pages.

    In late 1985 Aso began working on the manga series "Hikari no Densetsu," which would become the "masterpiece" of her career as a manga artist. Aso, a former competitive gymnast herself, used her personal experiences as well her training as a manga artist specializing on the art of movement to bring a solid depth to her drawings of gymnastics in the Hikari no Densetsu series.


    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

    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.
