Rokujo's and Kouichi's 25-year-old english teacher in the "front world".
Born in Ireland on March 17, Kumohira is actually a ninja of the Banten village in the world of Nabari. He is entirely devoted to protecting Rokujo, and wants him to become the ruler of Nabari. He has an intense hatred of transport, such as trains and buses, and would not get on one until Miharu manages to "persuade" him. He went to Japan because his grandfather was a "Japan otaku" and "ninja fanatic", who forced him to go to learn to become a ninja, and was unable to return home for ten years (partly due to his phobia of vehicles). It was during this time that he became the Rokujo family's close acquaintance, the memories about which Miharu has lost after an incident concerning the Shinrabanshou and its user (who was either Miharu's father, Akatsuki Rokujo, or his mother, Asahi Rokujo) killed his parents and Kumohira's grandfather and erased the concerned individuals' memories about it, except Kumohira's himself, 10 years ago. In the anime, he is the temporary leader as the current leader is away, while in the manga, he is not just a stand-in, but actually has the power to arrange for a temporary leader. According to Aizawa, Kumohira has probably recorded Banten's kinjutsu through verbal communication.

Among the Banten ninjas, Kumohira is the most vehement dissident against Miharu using the Shinrabanshou, instead advocating its permanent seal. This often results in him going to great length to dissuade Miharu from attempting to activate it, which clashes with Miharu's promise to Yoite. After realizing Miharu's determination to fulfill his promise, Kumohira went into hiding to conceal the whereabouts of the last kinjutsushō, Banten's Engetsurin, from whoever trying to find it.

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 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
