Monster by Urasawa Naoki

I’m not a fan of anime, I never was. I’m okay with the animation but I have a problem with the strangely dubbed voices which in my opinion lacked testoterones. Maybe all Japanese people talked that way, but oh well.

But boy, I love me some Japanese mangas! One of my favorite author is Urasawa Naoki, the creator of 20th Century Boys, Master Keaton and Monster. All of his mangas have seriously intricate storylines and characters. Sometimes they go back and forth in the timeline, so it makes the reader feel like that they are always a step behind from the story.

Monster is about Dr. Kenzo Tenma, a Japanese neurosurgeon working in Dusseldorf, West Germany in 1986. Dr. Tenma is in conflict  because the young boy whose life he saved grew up to be a mass murderer. Thus we follow Dr. Tenma as he hunt down the boy.

Monster has an awesome characterization, as well as surprisingly accurate and realistic geographical and political condition. It is said to be made to a movie by New Line Cinema sometime in 2009.

Here’s the 1st episode and 1st part of Monster by Urasawa Naoki. Finding the rest in Youtube is very easy. Enjoy!
