Real name Onodera Shotaro. Was known as Ishimori Shotaro before 1986.

While he was in high school, made his debut with [m]Nikyu Tenshi[/m] in Manga Shônen (1954). Like most of the Japanese artists, Ishimori was influenced by Tezuka Osamu. He moved to Tokyo after graduation, where he continued to work as a mangaka, starting with the war story Kaiketsu Harimao in 1959. Subsequently, he produced hit mangas such as the science fiction series Cyborg 009 (1964) and the historical series Sabu to Ichi Torimono Hikae (Big Comic, 1968-72). Other 1960s work by Ishimori is [m]Yûreisen[/m] (1960), Mutant Sabu (1961), [m]Shônen Dômei[/m] (1962) and Genma Taisen (1967),
as well as the humorous 'Bon Bon' (1965).

In 1975, he began another historical series, 'Sandarobotchi', which ran until 1981. In the 1970s, Ishimori created metamorphosis manga such as 'Kamen Rider' and in the 1980s, he became a pioneer of a new category of manga. He published 'Hotel' in 1984, followed by the educational 'Manga Nihon Keizai Nyumon' (1986) and the cynical look at society, 'Kurodaïku'. In 1985, in order to celebrate his 30th anniversary as a manga artist, he changed his name to Ishinomori. In 1989, he commenced working on a large series about the history of Japan, 'Manga Nihon no Rekishi', which remained unfinished due to the artist's death on January 28th, 1998 at the age of 60. In 1995 an asteroid was named after 'Kamen Rider'.

He passed away in 1998.

His son ONODERA Joe, is a director and actor.

He was once the assistant of TEZUKA Osamu and roomates with AKATSUKA Fujio.
NAGAI Go, OZE Akira, YAMADA Goro, HOSOI Yuuji and SUGAYA Mitsuru were his assistants.

Ishinomori was nicknamed the 'King of Manga' and is considered one of the pioneers of modern manga. He was also one of the most productive creators, producing over 120,000 pages of artwork in thirty years. It's rumored that he drew over 500 pages in one month!
