Unpublished Works of Cartoonist Jiro Taniguchi to Go Public in December

TOKYO – The unpublished works of the late renowned Japanese cartoonist Jiro Taniguchi, who passed away in February, will be published on Dec. 8 in two volumes by the publisher Shogakukan, the company’s spokesperson confirmed to EFE on Monday.

The works, which are believed to have been created while Taniguchi was ill, have been compiled into two volumes.

An unfinished story in full color titled “Konen no Mori,” centering on the harmony with nature and the emotions evoked by the scenery will be released as a single volume, while the depiction of a unique technique combining black and white ink with pencil, under the title “Izanau mono,” containing a collection of short stories and his last work before his death, will be combined in another volume, according to Japan’s Kyodo news agency.

Taniguchi, who died on Feb. 11 at the age of 69, was among the most famous Japanese cartoonists and screenwriters, and the creator of manga classics such as “Harukana Machi e” (1998) and “Bocchan no Jidai” (1987-1996).

Born on Aug. 14, 1947 in Tottori prefecture, Taniguchi began working as an assistant to manga artist Kyota Ishikawa and published his first individual work “Kareta Heya” in 1971.

Taniguchi was known for dealing with various genres in his works, marked by a special lyrical emphasis, which led him to be known as a manga poet in certain circles.

Taniguchi’s works range from science fiction to literary pieces. His hand-drawn sketches from Venice were compiled in the fashion house Louis Vuitton’s travel book.

Taniguchi was widely known in the European comic world, especially in France, where he was awarded the insignia of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters in 2011.
