Description from animenfo.com:
QUOTE
Dr. Tenma is a Japanese brain surgeon working in Germany. He has it all: incredible medical skills, a great job, and a beautiful fiancée who also happens to be the daughter of the hospital's director.

One day he is ordered to forgo operating on a critically injured man in favor of a more illustrious patient. Disillusioned by the hospital’s politics, he decides from then on that he will do what he thinks is right, regardless of politics.

Some time later, a young boy and his twin sister are brought in. The boy has a bullet in his head and requires an operation that Dr. Tenma knows only he is capable of performing successfully. Just as Dr. Tenma is about to begin the procedure, the mayor is rushed into the hospital and the director instructs Dr. Tenma to leave the boy to operate on the critically ill mayor. Dr. Tenma decides that he will do what is right and go ahead with the boy's operation.

The young boy's operation ends in success but the surgeons operating on the politician fail. As a result, Dr. Tenma is passed over for a promotion and his fiancée calls off their engagement.

Soon after this incident, strange murders begin to occur, all of which benefit Dr. Tenma greatly. As a result, he becomes the prime suspect although the police have no evidence against him. It seems that the boy whose life he saved is heavily involved in it somehow and that there is much more to him than meets the eye.

Anime series based on the famous "Monster" manga by Naoki Urasawa.

Dr. Kenzo Tenma is a very talented Japanese doctor and he`s praised by all doctors in Germany. But after he saw how a woman cried for her man who died because someone else got more priority, he changed. He decides he wouldn`t let anyone pass; everyone is equal.

But one day, Tenma has to work on a little boy who was shot during the murder of his parents. He decides he will save the life of the boy, because he was first in line.

But then, the children disappear .. and the murders begin. Tenma, feeling both guilt and worry, goes off to investigate the case since he feels that it somehow relates to him ... and the horror begins, for both Tenma and everyone he meets in search for the children...


here are the first few episodes, i'll upload more whenever I get the chance.

I finished that entire series a few months ago. I have to say that it's one of my favorites. smile.gif Very fast-paced in most places, and very "human". I like that.

A friend of mine practically hit me over the head with it till I agreed to read it (the Manga, that is). Up to volume 4, and it's rather good. I assume the Anime is no different, as I looked into that to and it seems faithful.

Still not licensed, is it? I find that odd, considering how good it is.

Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

Thank you for the reminder, Asu! I started watching Monster ages ago and never got aruond to watching the last 5 or 6 episodes. Definitely one of the best manga to anime transitions that I've seen in a long time. I guess the reason I stopped watching it is because, it just wasn't that interesting once you get up there in the anime. Other animes just got more and more interesting to me, but I'm glad you reminded me to go back and finish it. Asu, helper to the gods sleep.gif

I finished Monster a couple of days ago, and even with all the time that I've had, it still took a while. And yeah, a good portion of my break went to watching Monster, which had me at the edge of my seat (or cushion, when I'm sitting on the floor) most of the time. And I admit it! At some points, I had to grab a cushion because I needed something to hug.

Awesome, awesome series.

Read the original Manga in its entirety over December. More brilliance from Naoki Urasawa. Checked up on some of the later episodes for referance, and I was right; pretty much a faithful adaption, so watching all 74 episodes is the same as reading all 18 volumes.

Monster is easily the second best Manga I've ever seen, and I'm assuming the Anime is right up there with it.

It is right up there. Just for confirmation.

Thank you for making this thread! I adore this anime, but the ending had me boggled. I wish I could get into Naoki Urasawa's mind. sad.gif
