Heihachi Edajima
Heihachi Edajima
The headmaster of Otokojuku (男塾, Man's Private School?) and a former Navy Major General. He is a bull-headed kendo master teaching troubled youths to be warriors. A child prodigy who entered Tokyo University at a very young age with only a week's study. He fought bravely in World War II as an imperial soldier. This character is modeled after the Imperial Japanese Navy admiral Togo Heihachiro (東郷平八郎; The city of Edajima (江田島) was the site of the former Japanese Imperial Naval Academy; see ja:海軍兵学校). Whenever he's about to deliver the coup de grâce to his enemy, he shouts his famous one-liner: "I AM THE PRINCIPAL OF OTOKOJUKU, EDAJIMA HEIHACHI!!!" (わしが男塾塾長江田島平八である!!, Washi ga Otokojuku Jukuchō Edajima Heihachi de aru!!?). Any inquiry in regard to many of eccentric Otokojyuku rule or his decision is also answered by this one liner.

The character was famously cosplayed by Lee Teng-hui, former President of the Republic of China, Taiwan.

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
