This is for the show Monster by Naoki Urasawa . This is my favorite show above anything else. always in my top anime list. only show ill actually fight somebody over, and if they had a blu ray box for $200 i would buy it. But not to many people around me have seen it or know about. so ive made this to discuss it with anyone who has and bring some new viewers into the show. its not on crunchyroll btw

Best psychological anime I've seen. More people should see this.

This was a really excellent series start to finish.

It'll be interesting if Guillermo del Toro succeeds in greenlighting his live action adaption of it for HBO.

I'm watching Monster right now, and can I just say that, what Johann is to me, is like what Joffrey is to Game of Thrones fans. Not kidding. I want to throw my computer across the room every time his smug little face shows up.

I really hope he dies in the slowest, most painful way possible. I don't even care about the storyline anymore, and just want him dead. Ugh.

I was just think about this today because of Black Bullet which is directed by Masayuki Kojima as well.

Monster is fairly under rated i feel. It's extremely well done. I love it.

I'm just frustrated about the fact that he kills everyone that I like, and then no one figures out it's him until 10 episodes later. Meanwhile,


My hatred for Runge is great, but it's still second to Johann. I'm just a very annoyed Monster fan.

Cannot find this show leagally (dvd box set only covers like first 15 eps) or illegally as all links seem to have been disabled.
I watch a lot of anime and I find it extremely disappointing that one of the shows people always mention as one of the best out there is not even available for fans to watch! : (

The entire series is available on DVD in Australia, from Siren Visual.

Hey, thanks matt22122 for the heads up! I checked out the site and although it is true they have the entire series, it would cost over 200 hundred dollars to buy it and have it shipped to the US. I'm just not ready to spend that kind of money. I'm going to hope that Del Toro's bid to make it on HBO will convince Viz Media to re-release it to streaming. We'll see...

This series is amazing...though I do wonder, does anyone else have goosebump moments every few minutes? Every time something happens (so pretty much the entire series XD) I have them...

Also, the music was wonderful! Fits the series so well!

Loved the anime, and I'd buy it if it was more accessible. I'm buying the manga instead, though. Really enjoying that as well. Oh, those of you who liked Monster should check out the manga named Pluto as well. Really enjoyed that one.

Also, didn't go one episode where i didn't watch the opening. The soundtrack is simply amazing.

I checked out the manga, and it seems to be a high quality 'perfect ed'. Nice. I ordered the first three and preordered the fourth volume due out in late April. Thanks for mentioning it!
