(This review was written solely for vol. 2 of Monster, not vol. 3, where this review is also posted. I had no control over this; it was mistakinly posted as a review for vol. 3 by Amazon.com.)

Once I finished this second volume of Monster, I was amazed at how such a simple manga could achieve what this one did. The multi-tiered plot continues to get thicker, and the tension builds as the characters interact. Plus, the simple art style seems to add rather than take away, and in many ways legitimizes this story by taking away some of the exaggerated models found in most manga. And, as if I didn't have enough to make this good, the dialogue is top-notch and believable, which is key to me when reading manga as matching the words to the art is often mishandled, especially in translated manga.

The story, continuing from volume one, follows Tenma as he searches for the twin of the boy Tenma saved. But he's having a difficult time digging up information, and finding people to take him seriously. That's mostly because the twin does not have her memories from that time, and even goes by a different name... Later on, we also get to see how desperate Tenma becomes during his search for the killer of the families. He changes drastically, almost to the point of inhumanity, all in the efforts to stop a plague he believes he released on Germany.

To be honest, the continuing story in this volume slows a bit from the previous volume, which was slow itself. Though the first few chapters where Tenma searches for the twin is dramatic and in direct correlation with the last volume, it gets away from that when old characters are reintroduced and new ones are brought in. It doesn't make it bad in any way, but it seems to lengthen an already massive story, and it leaves me hungering for the third volume in this series so that things can get back to normal.

I can still recommend this manga above any other right now, though, as the story is as intelligent as I've ever found in manga. The technical details and nonchalant style of art doesn't weigh the plot down in any way, and the constantly building suspense makes you wish that they released graphic novels in larger formats (say four-hundred page hardbacks). To compare, Monster goes well alongside Death Note in terms of suspense, but because it has no fantasy elements, there is something about the horror in Monster that puts it above Death Note.

This is a very long series.. I got bored of it - not my cup of tea.. however it is an excellent story line and the illustrations are fantastic. If you are a Urasawa fan like I am - you will enjoy the illustrations even if you dont like the story.

If you want answers to all those pressing questions well you wont in this volume the final volume nope.You think their be a little more but no the author could have disclosed some of the secrets like johan f***ing name!

This is the continuation of a series of Manga. Once you start reading the first volume, you can’t put it down! With each volume the plot gets thicker and the suspense increases. I loved how the story takes place over different part of Europe; there is a feel that this is “Jason Borne” in Manga form! I thought it was also neat to see how this was originally in Japanese but the author and the artist gave great attention to detail concerning Europe, it’s “look,” the specific city and location and the subculture. This series does a good job with developing the characters and getting the readers interested as soon as they are introduced.
The part that made me interested in this series are the philosophical themes throughout the book. The antagonist is known as “him,” or the “monster.” We often think of monster as aesthetically ugly but here the villain is someone that is attractive and seem normal. This villain is also one who is able to perpetuate his plans by manipulating other people and taking advantage of what motivates them. In some sense the monster is a demonic figure or an Anti-Christ. It made me ponder a lot about how this illustrate spiritual truth of spiritual warfare that the devil out there is one who knows us and take advantage of our weaknesses and motivation.

Naoki Urasawa, Monster: Surprise Party (ViZ, 1995)

Urasawa really kicks Monster into gear in Surprise Party, its second volume. It's nine years after the events of the first book, and Tenma has stopped practicing medicine in order to track down Johan, the monster who gives the series its name. As the story opens, we're introduced to a law student in Heidelberg, Nina, who aspires to be a federal prosecutor. She starts getting anonymous love-notes via email, and her friends are convinced it's the cute new guy in class. But Nina's email address is only given to trusted friends... top-notch suspense here. Highly recommended. ****
