Almost none of his works are scanned/licensed in English, but what a legend.

Well, Taniguchi was something. Born in 1947, he was a real fan of european comics. And this relation wasn't one-sided, because he was beloved in europe and particulary where i'm writting this comment, in France. He is considered to be the most occidental mangaka, but just by reading his manga it's obvious that he's also deeply japanese. Taniguchi, and his beautiful drawing-techniques, touched my heart with his famous slow rythm Manga. But during his long career, he has drawn a lot of diffrent manga style, each as good as the most famous. I won't explain here why i think taniguchi reached the perfection with his Art, because Taniguchi's manga is something to feel more than to talk about.
There's two reasons why i wrote this. First of all, for people that didn't read any Taniguchi's manga yet. Please let him a chance, reading some Taniguchi was a growing experience for me but also something very special, and unforgettable. Then just to pay tribute to this Artist that i really love and who carried his art away from everything else.
I won't ever heard about a new manga by Taniguchi that is just about to be released. But that's ok, because i'll never forget how i felt, just reading his manga.

Unfortunately Venice will never be added because it's considered a picture book and according to the manga database guidelines picture books aren't allowed. Kanai-kun by Taiyo Matsumoto was recently removed because of this sadly.

Venice was a great comic surprised it is not on the site yet.
