Kamimura studied at the Musashino art academy and worked then as illustrator. He made his debut in 1967 with "Kawaiko Koyuri-chan no Daraku". His illustrations adorned a huge amount of books and record covers. He liked it to break existing tabus, e.g. in 1972 he created a scandal with "Dousei Jidai" (showing a swinging cohabitation of a unmarried couple). In the 70's and 80's he established oneself as drawer for demanding adult Manga (Gekiga). He was very productive, he drew approximate 400 pages per month. On January the 11th 1987 he died of a tumour in his pharynx.

One of the greatest masters of gekiga. A refined author with an innovative trait.

This here is the wrong place. *G*

You should first read THIS and then put the new entries HERE. :)

Could you add Aku no Hana and Sumire Hakusho ? Because they were recently published in France.

Could you add Sumire Hakusho please ?

Dullboy basically said the same thing, and the most recent comment below him is from almost seven years ago. Probably people do already know about how he was involved in certain projects. But even if they do not, there is no need to call anyone here a moron.

He didn't write Lady Snowblood you morons, he only drew the art.

Rikon Club, Dousei Jidai, Kantou Heiya... it's safe to say that he's one, if not THE, favorite mangaka of mine. Domo Arigato :)
