Kamimura studied at the Musashino art academy and worked then as illustrator. He made his debut in 1967 with "Kawaiko Koyuri-chan no Daraku". His illustrations adorned a huge amount of books and record covers. He liked it to break existing tabus, e.g. in 1972 he created a scandal with "Dousei Jidai" (showing a swinging cohabitation of a unmarried couple). In the 70's and 80's he established oneself as drawer for demanding adult Manga (Gekiga). He was very productive, he drew approximate 400 pages per month. On January the 11th 1987 he died of a tumour in his pharynx.

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
