Ginji Kusanagi
Ginji Kusanagi
At the beginning of the story, Ginji meets Minako Sasebo, the girl of his dreams, and is on the verge of going professional as a boxer, only to die in a suspicious biking accident. Confronted by an angel (who seems to be half cherub, half Buddhist monk), he tells Ginji that he can reunite with Minako, but only if he lives out the natural life of another animal. When he remembers Minako's love for penguins, he decides to be reincarnated as an Adelie Penguin. Once his penguin life naturally ends—a life, he later learns, which may last for up to twenty years!—he will be able to return to his old body and be with Minako.

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
