Akira Hatsushiba
Akira Hatsushiba
Main character from "Secret" Arc.
A 17-year-old boy in his senior year of high school. Often thickheaded and clumsy, but also dependable and sometimes cool, despite his usual dorky demeanor. As the story progresses, he receives favorable attention and romantic feelings from the many girls he knows, but only has eyes for Sakuraba Yurika.

His most important secret in the manga is that when he sneezes he becomes a girl with blond hair and a somewhat underdeveloped body with a 'cute' charm. This leads him to get into some unfortunate (and hilarious) situations. He originally uses his female form to successfully become friends with Sakuraba Yurika and continues to use it when he feels like being with Yurika. He resorts to using a 'koyori string' to make himself sneeze and become a girl whenever he pleases.

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
