My fave mangaka <3

Ryouken Tantei is my favourite thing ever.

It was awesome that Guillermo del Toro praised Jiro Taniguchi in one of his recent tweets (link below). He chose
Guardians of the Louvre
as the cover picture.

Truly a brilliant mangaka, quite surprised that none of his series have been adapted yet.

One of my favorite mangakas.
His stories are simple and touching ♥.

wasn't convinced enough when I read Haruka na Machi e but I tried his other works and I say he is an amazing storyteller. Current favorite is Inu wo Kau !

Hi, it's me again !
I'm reading とも路 (Tomoji ), another great Taniguchi's manga which is not in the list for now. I know you're probably busy but when you'll have some time, could you consider adding it to the list? (with the others I said before it would be perfect ^^ )
Thank you !
ありがとう ございます!

4 down. Hopefully I get to read all of his works. I simply love his art style an he's an incredible author!

ChaosIs_A_Ladder | Feb 19, 2015 7:28 AM
Thank you for correcting "Trouble is my business" ;)
Please now add the others I said before and add also Venice (Louis Vuitton).
Looking forward for those updates :)
Thank you (^_^)

ChaosIs_A_Ladder | Dec 21, 2014 9:29 AM
"Trouble is my business" has 6 volumes :)
Add his work "原獣事典" (Hara jû jiten) with Ryûichi Kaneko (for the comments).
Add also "荒野より 谷口ジロー作品集成 " ( Kôya Yori Sakuhinshûseii) translated : From Wildness. Finished with 2 volumes.
Thank you.
