I've only seen up to episode 25 so far, but I'll have to give it 9/10. Not much to say about it since everyone has pretty much said it all. But what stopped it form getting a 10/10 from me was that I felt that some of the episodes tend to drag a bit, and didn't grip me that much.

I totaly agree w/ Kashima! What an absurd to say Monster is at the same level as Naruto
Monster is a thousand times better!!
Of course the manga is also much better than the anime cause it doens't contain fillers
So when i gave it a 10 I was thinking about the manga... I never got to watch the entire animated series.

The only episode that feels like "filler" to me is the one where Tenma and Dieter hitch a ride with the English couple who have come to visit their son. Other than that most every episode moves the story forward.

Now there may be episodes that are "filler" in the traditional sense that they aren't taken from the manga but created especially for the anime. I wouldn't know. But for a show as long as Monster, it's remarkably free of "filler" in the sense I first described.

The events of that episode are also in the manga, though, so it doesn't qualify as a "filler" deviation from the source material.

And having watched the anime first and read very little of the manga later, I'd agree that there are not really episodes I would qualify as fillers. After all, part of the beauty of Monster is that even the minor characters' fates and personalities are shown in meticulous detail too, enhancing the overall impact of the series. The presence of the main characters changing the lives of oher characters is one of the major themes of the series, one can call it filler, I think it was very much necessary to have plotlines like Tenma meeting and helping out the young illegal surgeon wannabe.

Blah, replied to an ancient post out of a knee-jerk reflex.
There are women who, however you may search them, prove to have no content but are purely masks. The man who associates with such almost spectral, necessarily unsatisfied beings is to be commiserated with, yet it is precisely they who are able to arouse the desire of the man most strongly: he seeks for her soul -- and goes on seeking.

considering that Naruto is a shonen manga and Monster is a seinen manga it's unfair to compare the two. Though Monster is definitely one of the best mangas/animes ever.

If One Piece and Naruto are at a level 10, than Monster is a 20.

Yes Monster is definitely way above onepiece/naruto/fma. While those are good, yeah, if they get a 10 then I'd even streach monster to a 22-25. It's that much better. It has the very best character development out of any anime. The story is amazing. The suspense parts were one of the best ever in an anime. And to top it off, they gave so much information that anyone could delve onto it and live off it for a life time.

This is truely one of the greatest animes ever made. Period.

In my opinion, Monster is the perfect anime. I have never seen a more complete anime in my life. Now all the new animes I watch, they are nothing compared to Monster. That is the only downside of watching it.

There is not a rating high enough for Monster! I really hope the movies will do the manga and anime justice.
