Given name: 巧
Gender: Male

Takumi Nagayasu disovered the work of Chiba Tetsuya at a very young age. Impressed by its dynamics, he left for Tokyo to start a career in comics. In 1964 he became the assistant of Namba Kenji. While being his Namba's assistant, he drew his first own comic, 'Ofukuro' in 1968. Nagayasu remained in the shadows of his master for many years, until he met Otomo Katsuhiro, who wrote a scenario for him. Together they made 'Mother Sarah', the series about a mother searching for her children in a postnuclear world, which was published in several other countries. He is also the co-author, with Asada Jiro, of 'Poppoya', a serial about a lonely stationmaster.


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
