Maruo dropped out of senior high school in 1973 and worked in Tokyo for a bookbinder.

He is a self-taught artist whose works are characterized by a an extreme graphic violence and a mortifying vision of sex, many of his stories are permeated by a general surrealism.

Because of this his works didn't fit the mass-market magazines and he has to wait until the 1980 for making his official debut as manga artist.

He also has published short stories on the "alternative" magazine Garo.
The french critique Thierry Groensteen has defined him as "Marquis de Sade of the manga".

But Maruo is not just another "sex and violence" manga artist - he is one of the greatest retro-artists working in the manga field today. His drawings are elegant, and he uses innovative page designs. Today, Maruo's art and stories go far beyond the readers of Ero-manga; his work is sold in deluxe hardback book format, and limited editions of his lithographed prints sell for high prices.

He has realized that his work is most powerful and lyrical when he refrains from sex and violence, and so today he is working on a new series for the mainstream manga magazine Young Champion. Maruo's most famous works are 'Planet of the Jap' and 'Mr. Arachi's Amazing Freak Show'.
