Monster

Post by icarus355 »

So, i´ve watched Monster and loved it. Thinking of pick up the manga, but don´t want to go through all the story again unless it expands the story. So, is the manga worth reading or the anime is a faithfull enough adaptation?

Haven't watched/read either but apparently the stories are almost identical.
wikipedia wrote:The 74-episode anime version of Monster is a faithful adaptation of the entire story. It is mostly recreated shot for shot and scene for scene compared to the original manga. The few subtle differences include short snippets of additional dialogue and slight re-ordering of scenes in places.

Still haven't gotten round to watching the anime yet, BUT the manga is just so brilliant you owe it to yourself to read it, if only so for looking at the drawings. This one is so amazing I ended up reading the last couple of issues over a marathon 8-10 hour session. Thats how good this is.

Yeah, think I gonna give it a try. the show is prety amazing, but the ending seens a little off tone for me. Thought maybe the manga would be better in that respect.
