So far, Monster is the best series I have seen for 2004.

It really has a interesting and suspenceful storyline. The setting also seems to be unique (how many non hentai shows are about doctors/surgeons? Blackjack is the only one i can think of.)

I was somewhat surprised how the storyline jumped ahead so many years. After reading the summery, i thought it took place when the kids were little. Hmmm, i think i am in for a real treat.

Lunge is spooky, but in a cool way. His finger thing. Does anyone think that takes away from the realism of the series?

I thought so when reading the manga. He looks too much like Agent Smith from Matrix and his mechanical computer typing fingering just reminds me too much of the agents.

Still, it didn't really blow the story or anything. It's less unrealistic than just odd.

No... there are a lot of quirky eccentric people on this world whose behaviour would make you think Lunge is the sanest of us all

His 'typing' is just a power memorisation tool, just like those techniques that tell you to 'visualise' and associate a picture with a memory, Lunge just 'types' it in.

Except that The Matrix is a movie done in 1999... Lunge showed up at the beginning of the manga, which started in 1994.

Guess Agent Smith was copied on him and not the reverse

That's fine, but I saw The Matrix first so Agent Smith couldn't remind me of Lunge, whom I had never seen.

Either way both are cool characters in their respective stories.

I believe Monster came before 20CB though.

I know what you mean though. A lot of his characters look similar. The main character of Master Keaton looks very similar to the main character of Monster, IMO.

I'm downloading a 20th Century Boys torrent right now, but I don't plan on reading the Monster manga since the anime's coming out

I hope the anime does these later parts of the manga justice, so far it's been great but this stuff is nothing compared to what's on tap.
Has some high expectations to live up to.

Monster's opening theme has to be the best opening song without vocals I've ever heard! It fits the series so well. I love it.

yeah, jumping ahead so quickly, certainly isn't slow paced for a 70 ep series, is it. :P

that's one of the things make Naoki Urasawa so special. He is a master in telling stories across a long period of time and switching to different locations on the way. 20th Century Boys further develops this "space-time switching/jumping" story-telling technique that stories are told back and forth in time and locations are switched across the whole world. Now 20th Century boys already spans 2.5 generations from the 1970's to 2018.

Well, if its 20 chapters to much, i really believe the makers of anime will just pick 20 episodes at good points (where there isnt too much happening) and make 3 chapter episodes.
Nobody forces them to do 2 chapters every week the next 1.5 years....
