Episode 74 - The Real Monster
The last couple of episodes were the greatest in the series. Episode 74, for me, was mostly a peaceful, happy sort of ending one could hope for... until the end. Johan asks Tenma: was his mother trying to protect him, or was he mistaken for his sister? That scene was possibly the most chilling in the entire series and easily the most emotional, for me. The tale of Johan was most definitely a sad one. Of course, we are left with the unsolvable cliffhanger of Johan disappearing from his hospital bed, though I think his journey has ended.

Beyond that, episode 72 had one of the greatest scenes in anime history: Runge fighting back, digging his hand into Roberto. I shivered at how badass that scene was. It was sad to see Grimmer go, as well. Soldats did a magnificent job in batching the six best episodes of the series together - thank you! I started watching this anime when I was 14 years old, it is going to be difficult letting it go!

The end.

Then, the question that needs to be answered is:

Spoiler for My interpretation:

mika163 2006-02-01 10:26

watched eps 70 to 74 in one sitting.
this has been a great series!

f00l 2006-02-01 13:03


well it was a good ride everyone

geez i remember when the first episode of monster came out. so long ago but it feels like it was yesterday

Guido 2006-02-01 18:47

What I have in doubts is what became of Tenma at the end?

Lat 2006-02-01 19:14

What a great ending! I am assuming Heckel meant Johan/Nina's mother when he said he had spent ages looking for someone, I wonder how he managed to track her down! When Tenma goes to visit her, she mentions he's visited a few times (did she not question why before the time we see in the episode), I wonder what time frame passed between ep 73 and 74 if he had been a few times!

The last few episodes were absolutely fantastic! The thing that really got me was when Grimmer was in the street trying to talk to the armed men and then that girl comes running towards him and gets shot in the neck, that was harsh!

The only thing that bothered me after the end was the fact we didn't hear Johan's real name! Arghhhhhhhh! Still, it was a pretty startling revelation from Johan in Tenmas imagination!

Wow. The ending was great...but I didn't get some of

This series was unbelievably good. I don't think I've ever seen any animated piece this good in my life. If they had taken out the filler this series would have been beyond comparison IMO.
Ahh! Finally it's complete. I think it'll become a classic.
*crawls on to rate highly at*

(ah sorry repeat...don't know how to delete it)

Extended Review to come later: This show certainly merits it. As one of the best animes which I have ever seen (the only other which I could think of being Honey and Clover that truly deserve that description).

Sugetsu 2006-02-02 02:50

This is one of the best animes ever created... I am not exageratingl. It was brilliant and well put together at all levels, I wish everyone liked it.

Everybody has different tastes, but there are things out there that are true pieces of art, and this is one of them. Arrgg.. I only wish this anime became the most popular series of this time, but I know that isnt going to happen, because it's none fictional storyline isnt appealing to the action-type anime fans.

I would love to write a final review of this series as I did when I first saw this anime, but I trully astonished. There is much perfection in this anime that I don't really know where to start from, in my opinion everything was well done. 10 out 10 to Monster.


Thanks to soldats and anime-keep for deliviring to us such a beautiful anime.

Monster is now #2 in my list of best animes of all time along with Berserk, Saint Seiya will always be #1 but it just because that anime has a huge nostalgic value to me. In reality, Monster is at a whole diffirent level and cannot be compared to anyother anime out there. Its style is trully original.

Good bye Monster, you will always have a place in heart T_T

More questions:

Ahh...I think I'll have to rewatch it. My memory is fading.

Man, just watched the last episode. Without a doubt, it was the best anime I ever seen. *_* And I'm proud to be a part of this anime, somehow. Because I live in germany! :D But the german ambiance suits generally to this series. And what the fuck, it went over 74 episodes.. and now, unfortunately, it's over! It was really a great story, thanks for the idea Naoki Urasawa. ^_^ But where did Johann disappear to?
Oh well, maybe we'll get to a see a second season eventually, who knows? ;)
But most likely not in this life... :(

I just want to say I'm glad that I've watched this series .. I really enjoyed it to hte maximum :D

Well to answer few questions for uzumaki:

My question is ..
What kind of coincident it is that you run from the bad guys "Franz & the red roses mansion" .. and you run to the Czech border and get caught by the same people "General Wolfe" .. or were they a different organization!

Incredible series. Word fail to describe Monster. I guess I'll just have to watch the series all over again :)

But there's one thing I'm wondering about:
