I just finished reading Monster.
Why does /a/ hate it so much? I really liked the ambiance, the character developments and the general feel of a manga taking place in a western environment.

What part of it didn't you like or you think was grossly overrated?
>>
havent read it, but loved the anime. Pulled off the huge, grand story well. Loved switching focus to numerous main characters. one of my favorite animes.

>Why does /a/ hate it so much?
/a/ doesn't hate it though the "overrated shit" thread is just a meme.
>>
Some people really had a problem with the ending. You know what I'm talking about anon.

how well does the anime adapt the manga
I hear so much about it, I know I have to read Pluto and 20th Century Boys
But when it comes to Monster what's the best option? Does it have a good soundtrack?
>>
It's okay to like this now?

Most of /a/ hasn't even watched it because of the meme and it's daunting 74 episodes. I'm still in love with the Op to this day.
>>
>>136097526
I like that we can call Tenma a cuck without it being hyperbole.
>>
>>136099651

It was always liked but the faggots who never watched it or are just following popular opinion are the loudest.

Best girl lost, and the MC chooses to live a life devoid of women.

honestly, I didnt see this coming and shit my fucking pants when it happened. one of the best twists ever.

All of Urasawa's endings suck

soundtrack is one of it's highlights. good shit.

but is it a good adaption

>>136100399
It was probably one of the most obvious plot twists ever

I saw it coming and I never see plot twists coming
>>

Nope, Tenma's fiancee.

Not all lives are equal. Tenma deciding to save Johan's life at the end just because he's a doctor and he feels morally obligated to goes against everything his manhunt has been about, and is quite frankly repulsive, considering all the lives Johan erased or ruined, and how little remorse he showed. Johan deserved to die, or at least go to prison for life. In that regard, I would say there isn't as much "character development" as OP says there is, Johan stays a nihilistic asshole until the very end, and Tenma stays the benevolent doctor who can do no wrong.

As someone who lived in Heidelberg for a few years, it was nice to see an anime/manga so well researched into that area.

It's not particularly good but not particularly bad either. It's just kinda there.

OP is elder-god-tier though,

The side characters were better than Johan/Tenma though.
>>
>>136100361
My favorite episode.
>>
>>136100744
Eva fucked everything Urasawa drew.

Nina best girl.
Sparks flew.
Most likely because Tenma is a genuinely good male specimen and because Nina looks like his boyfriend Johan.

I loved Lunge.

he doesn't even care about that bitch anymore though, she got btfo hard

You mean Eve? It's reasonable he fuck-off and moved on from her, he's not a masochism like Martin, buddy.
>>

loved this shit. would be crazy to see this in the supposed live action series they've been trying to make for years.
im not a big fan of del toro but I could see him doing some pretty awesome shit with this character if he got the right actor.

it was like the fugitive, but worse

>how well does the anime adapt the manga
Phenomenally well
It's basically a scene-by-scene adaptation(except some of them are re-ordered)
The Japanese Voice Cast is also top-notch shit

>Does it have a good soundtrack?
It kicks ass

Way to miss the whole goddamn point of the show idiot


Johan needed love and forgiveness if Tenma had shot him like Nina did when he wanted her to kill him Johan would have still been out there killing people(if he survived which he always does anyways)
>>
the issue i had with Monstah is Johan.
how does he do what he does ? it's completely nonsense and superpowers bullshit,how the fuck could a goddamn 6yo kiddo provoque all that butchery in the kinderheim511 ?
how does he manipulate others to commite crimes ?
being a handsome bishonen doesn't explain doing what he does, especially that the setting is supposed to be "realistic"
>>
>>136103509
That's just a cheap cliche, some people are irredeemable and should not be shown forgiveness, especially when they're serial murderers - that's just insulting to their victims.
Tenma and Nina did a full 180 degree turn around in about 5 seconds.
>>
>>136104770
>That's just a cheap cliche, some people are irredeemable and should not be shown forgiveness
That's just bullshit moralfaggotry from your part


All that would happen after that is Tenma getting arrested for killing Johan
And would mean that Johan was right and Tenma was wrong and that Johan succeeded in dragging him to his world

The whole show is a battle between Life and Death
Johan chose Death and believed people are only equal in Death
Tenma was the completely opposite

This whole show is an allegory of ideologies
It's the battle of the Angel vs the Devil
It's all philosophical
Taking this shit in a grounded way like some sort of CSI shit like you're doing is absolutely retarded
>>
>>136104683
Well, we get a pretty good idea of how he caused a massacre at Ruhenheim, don't we? Mainly through targeting the weak, blocking escape routes and spreading deadly rumours.

He probably did something very similar at Kinderheim.
>>
>>136106306
In "Another Monster" his methods used in the Kinderheim Massacre are revealed
>>
>>136102953
She still loves him and is even willing to sacrifice her life for him, she changed and redeemed herself throughout the story. More than enough reasons for them to start again.
