Japanese manga artist most known for his manga Groove Adventure Rave, published by Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine, from 1999 to 2005. The series was later adapted into an anime. However, the anime adaption was cancelled before it could complete the series.

In 2003, He collected some of his one-shot titles in two volumes: Mashima-en- Vol.1 & 2. Those stories include, among others, Cocona, "Xmas Hearts" and "Fairy Tail", a sort of prototype for his last work.

In 2006, He began his the Fairy Tail series, serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine. He also published the manga Monster Hunter Orage.

Hiro Mashima was a notable guest at the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con. He has one daughter.

His artwork and Oda Eiichiro's are greatly similar, but that is due to both of them being influenced largely by Toriyama Akira's work growing up.

His former assistant was YOSHIKAWA Miki author of Yankee-kun to Megane-chan.

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
