Rokuro Makube - Vampire by maiyeng Rokuro Makube - Vampire by maiyeng
Rokuro Mabuke or "Rock". The intelligent and handsome, yet sick and evil villian from Tezuka Osamu's manga, "Vampire".
There's even a live action TV series of Vampire which Tezuka stars as himself! XD

Rock also appears in a lot of Tezuka's mangas, playing various roles, but mostly as a villian. In Black Jack he had a number of roles, but most noticably as Black Jack's best childhood friend, Makube.

Yes, he is one kickass character! *^^* I think you are very much the first person who refers to him as Makube rather than Rock. ^^

wow, I'm surprised that there's not more people. I like japanese names better than the english/dub ones. They sound cooler! ^^

Well, he is widely known as Rock, which is why everyone calls him by the name. But I hardly know anyone who initially calls him Makube. Makube is pretty much my favorite version of Rock. XD

This is very lovely!

I love the dark, noir-like feel of the image. The splatters in the background created as blood are a very nice touch.

Rock's one of my favorite Tezuka characters. But I think Vampire was definately his most awesome performance. (That and Phoenix: Future, I think.)

Nice to hear from another Rock fan! (Although Black Jack is my most favorite Tezuka character).
I agree that Rock really stood out in Vampire out of most of his roles (though I still need to see some of the others), I was surprised that he had a sense of guilt when he's around Saigo.
