An arm robot at Yutaka factory. It was manufactured in the Kumata Machine Factory in 1982. It was nick-named Monroe, and a cardboard cutout of Marilyn Monroe was attached to its arm. A second robot at the factory was called Lee, and had a cardboard cut-out of Vivian Lee.

    Official Announcement

    Hi everyone,

    As you may have known, our team is working hard on a new digital comics platform that lets you enjoy comics & officially support the creators & publishers that you love. Once it’s launched in the near future, you will not be able to read content anymore on

    MR Comics Membership still works normally & it will be carried over to the new platform. Your reading data (such as Favorites & Recent) will also be migrated over to the new platform. We will have more details once it’s available.

    However, please expect that more titles will be removed from this site as we comply with all content takedown requests in the upcoming periods.

    Thank you for supporting us,

    The Manga Rock team
