Mayu graduated from a Tokyo school and began her work as a mangaka. Her debut work, Primal Orange earned her a prize in October 2000, when she was only 18, for an original publication that helped gain her popularity. It wasn't long after that, that she was hired for Shueisha's monthly phonebook manga, Ribon although she first worked as an assistant there. When Mayu's first two actual serializations were done it wasn't that popular, and it wasn't until Nagatacho Strawberry that her work became known. During her work on Peter Pan Syndrome it was rumoured that she had quit Ribon since the series fell short of expectation and ended abruptly -- but luckily to fans surprise at the beginning of 2006 Rockin' * Heaven was released. Sakai has formerly worked as an assistant for Obana Miho.


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 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
