    Shiriagari Kotobuki is the undisputed champion of vaudeville in manga. His work is always absurd and oftentimes intelligent. He flips casually through styles and themes: heta-uma, shojo, gag, surrealism. His first manga in the early 1980s were parodies of 50s-60s period and horror gekiga. He then moved on to basic Japanese social types, like white collar "salary men" and secretarial "office ladies" (but beared). Shiriagari hit big in the 1990s, receiving numberous awards for his work, most of all the Yaji Kita series, a zany surrealistic perversion of Edo-period travel literature. It was made into a film in 2004. Shiriagari has also been successful as a commercial artist, from character design for a popular national children's television program, to the opening animation to one of the Takeshi Kitano's television variety shows.

    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
