Enrico’s Profile

Enrico Croce
Born in Rome, Italy

Ever since my first encounter with ‘Dragon Ball’ as a child, I have been fascinated, entertained and obsessed with Japanese manga and anime. But it was the discovery of Hara sensei’s Fist of the North Star (Hokuto no Ken) that really changed my life! This “love at first sight” moment inspired me to study Japanese and Japanese culture so I could enjoy reading this amazing manga in its original format. 

After completing my studies of the Japanese Language and History at the Italian Institute of Oriental Studies in La Sapienza in 2015, I settled in Tokyo and began working for the Otaku specialist store, Mandarake.  In 2017, I fulfilled my childhood dream by joining the SILENT MANGA AUDITION® editorial team.
