Jiro’s work was not only well-received in Japan, but also in few part of Europe. His works included detailed landscape which was admired by the Europeans. He was also known for his light hearted story. Unlike most of the manga which involves high school love scene or too much of dark violence. “The walking man”, “A distant neighborhood” and “the summit of the gods” are few of his greatest works. “Guardian of the Louvre” is the last book written by him. Releases in 2016. It’s unfortunate that we won’t be able to experience anymore of Jira’s work.</p>
