Just for comparison (and to show how precise the work of anime authors is), I took a picture of one place shown in the Monster's opening sequence... (click for larger image)
My god... this is amazing. With that level of fidelity.... we'll be visiting some countries without leaving ours

Wonder how they're going out of some of the later more sexually explicit scenes, since they're actually kind of important to the story.

ToTan has just released Episode 3! I'm really, really excited about it, and envious of all those who know what happens

I read two people's comments about it before I saw the episode, and I was still surprised by how deep his voice was. I find it a little disconcerting, but I expect I'll get used to it. Also, creepiness .

Well... great episode 3...

Still faithfully following the manga chapters (me like a lot)...

But I have one complaint & one question...

[Discussing Totan's version here].

Complaint first: The border around the white font should be darker and thicker. While it looks fine in most of the shots, the subs against pale background (lots of them in hospital scenes... doctors, patients and of course nurses all wearing pale blue-grey or white clothing) are harder to distinguish and I'm watching it on my PC. People running it on their TV screens might find it even harder...

Translation question: Only one sentence had me going WTF...

16:12... And he's so happy just about that?

I know what Dr. Becker is trying to imply... that Tenma is happy about flying a kite and Becker thinks it's very little to be excited about... but the wording was awkward.

For the rest? The episode seemed fine for me... Can't wait to get at episode 4...
Spoiler:
Oh... and I loved Lunge's deep voice. I was afraid he would get a "machine-like" (kinda droning) voice... this is disconcerting at first (although I had read recent posts so I knew about it) but I think I'll like that approach a lot more than a snarkly voice...

The fact Dr. Becker is a womanizer? Not so important in the long run so they just took out that reference... Unfortunately, we will probably

So what group do you guys like the best for Monster? The translater of the manga over at Mangascreener has been posting his impressions on the forum over there on all the differerent groups subbing Monster and he seems to like Anime-Kraze the best so far.

Well, the groups are starting to fragment now, with some on episode 3 and others still on earlier episodes, so it's hard to compare them overall, but based on the respective first episodes, yes, I like Anime-Kraze and Soldats.

I also do like the A-Kraze version but they are wayyyyyyyy to slow and they're still in ep 1
Anyway, one more chapter for the manga and it's over. Waiting patiently for the last chapter.

Me too, I stopped at 158 hoping they cleared all the chapters, but only got to 161, and hate waiting like this. Oh well, I can wait as long as it takes.

I'm really looking forward to chapter 162 as well. But let's have some patience

Now, for episode 3. Lunge's voice is just... perfect It's creepy, deep and calm; just like he is. He sounds exactly like an experienced inspector, waiting patiently for any proof to appear. But the interesting thing is that I got the feeling that I've heard that voice before... then I searched and discovered that Lunge's voice is done by Tsutomu Isobe; the same seiyuu who did Vincent Volaju in Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' On Heaven's Door (The Movie) and Harry MacDowel in Gungrave. Interesting, ne?

That's great! I knew the voice sounded familiar, of course it was Harry McDowel. I haven't seen the Bebop movie, so I don't know about that character, but that seiyuu is definitely Harry

I definitely like the voice actor they chose for Lunge. The only problem I have with his voice is that I always thought of it being more crackly. As it is, it's very deep but pure, and I usually invisioned it as having a bit more adams apple texture to it. Oh well, we'll see how it sounds later in the series.

Oh great, way to kill my last hope . I'm inclined to agree, I'd say cutting the Dr. Becker thing had more to do with time constraints than anything else,

I prefer Anime-Kraze as well, although Totan isn't bad.
Also, I watched the episode again, and I really like Lunge's voice now.

Is a few days later really that long of a wait? Learn a little patience. I'm happy to see so many people are getting into Monster.. it's just plain amazing
