He made his professional debut in 1979 afer winning an honorable mention for his story "My Alien" (ぼくの宇宙人 Boku no Uchuujin) at the 12th Shounen Champion Rookie Manga Awards, after which he became known mainly for his gag manga such as "Kuru Kuru Kurin" and "Tooku e Ikitai," as well as manga featuring science fiction elements. For many years, his manga appeared in the television guide "TV Bros."

Official Announcement

Hi all

As we announced previously, we have removed all reading features from the website.

Now when you visit each title’s info page, you can no longer read scanlations. Instead, we have added a feature that links each title in Manga Rock to an official content provider’s site (like Comixology, or viz.com etc.) where you can support the original authors and their work.

Disclaimer:  We do not receive any referral fee from any of your purchases.

In the meantime, our team is still working hard on project “MR Comics” where we hope to make comics more accessible to everyone — we will share details with you soon.

If you have any questions or need help (membership, account etc.), please contact  support@mangarock.com
