著者について

Naoki Urasawa's career as a manga artist spans more than twenty years and has firmly established him as one of the true manga masters of Japan. Born in Tokyo in 1960, Urasawa debuted with BETA! in 1983 and hasn't stopped his impressive output since. Well-versed in a variety of genres, Urasawa's oeuvre encompasses a multitude of different subjects, such as a romantic comedy (Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl), a suspenseful human drama about a former mercenary (Pineapple ARMY; story by Kazuya Kudo), a captivating psychological suspense story (Monster), a sci-fi adventure manga (20th Century Boys), and a modern reinterpretation of the work of the God of Manga, Osamu Tezuka (Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka; co-authored with Takashi Nagasaki, supervised by Macoto Tezka, and with the cooperation of Tezuka Productions). Many of his books have spawned popular animated and live-action TV programs and films, and 2008 saw the theatrical release of the first of three live-action Japanese films based on 20th Century Boys. No stranger to accolades and awards, Urasawa is a three-time recipient of the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award, a two-time recipient of the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize, and has received the Kodansha Manga Award. Similarly, Monster has been nominated three times for the Eisner Award in America. Urasawa has also become involved in the world of academia, and in 2008 accepted a guest teaching post at Nagoya Zokei University, where he teaches courses in, of course, manga.

TOEIC 620点の者です。
日本語版は読んだことありませんが、英語版を読んでもストーリーは分かるので、
ちょうどよいレベルかもしれません。むしろ文章的にはやさしいでしょう。
それよりも会話の表現を認識するには良い本かと思います。
細かい表現が間違っているのかどうかまではわかりませんが。
読む場所はトイレonlyなので、一日5分程度読んでいませんが、勉強になります。
総合しては買って良かったと思います。

Monster is not your typical manga story. Japanese manga rarely conveys a more Western backdrop for a story theme this well. The series takes place in Europe, mostly in Germany or it's sister countries. It has some historical references, but it's not really a historical tale either. It is really about the close relationship between good and evil, how difficult it can be to see the line drawn between them.

Dr. Tenma is a young doctor who appears to have it all. He is engaged to the hospital administrators daughter, in line for the job of head surgeon, and gifted with great talent. He is however, a master surgeon with a conscience. When his rich benefactors attempt to use him twice in as many days, to abandon a needy patient, only to treat someone of wealth and power, he balks. He cannot stomach having his skills used to save only who can pay the most. He believes a doctor is more than that. as might be expected, the administrator of the hospital, and his pampered, bitchy daughter, no longer support him when the person he fails to treat dies. Even the boy he just saved from the gunshot wound to the head, has his treatment handed over to another inferior doctor.

Tenma's professional career is nearly over before it begins. Something happens to change that, and it casts a cloud of suspicion over the doctor. The administrator, plus some other powerful doctors die suddenly, and Temna is given the post as head surgeon anyway. Nine years later while attempting another kind act he finds out why.

I won't throw in any spoilers here, and many may have guessed what happened at this point reading the story, but you won't have guessed all the detail. You will ask questions that come behind all this, and in the asking is the essence of the story. What is interesting, is we ask ourself with those questions, over, and over throughout the series. For instance what if the doctor had simply allowed himself to be manipulated by the heartless administration? Does the end really justify the means? In the long run he may have saved many. Was it the right thing to do what he did, and if so why when the result was so bad?

Many of us will feel the same resolve to do what the doctor is planning, but can he really do it in the end? What happens to the others if he cannot, and what happens to him if he does? There is rarely a more righteously good character created in any story as Dr. Tenma. Yet he is as complex a character as you'll ever likely see in a manga.

If you are looking for comedy, go elsewhere, there's no fan service, but occasionally some adult situations. If you don't like to think, go elsewhere. This manga is often about questions, those that have only personal answers. They do not force feed anyone baby food here. This is a crisp, well paced, and interesting drama / thriller. My understanding is that a movie company, has purchased the story rights recently to turn this into a motion picture. I'm not sure they have the time to convey everything of relevance in a single movie. Reading this manga is probably the best way to experience this, or perhaps the 74 episode anime series.

I've read both volume 1 and 2 of Urasawa's Monster and find it excellent. Even if you are not a fan of manga, and you find a little odd reading "backwards", these books worth it.

Urasawa's art is (and is not, at the same time) the typical japanese manga art. Is good, clear and well paced. The story is interesting, intriguing and, even if you have the main elements of the story known from almost the beginning of volume 2, your "need" to go on and read the story, and to see how it develops until the end (and what will be the end) is great. An the "need" turns on to be more important while you turn the pages.

I don't know exactly how many volumes it will take to get to the end, but you can count on me to faithfully be there to read it. And I think if you give it a try you will surely be there too.

Unbelievable! You will be engrossed in the world created by Naoki Urasawa. The story is superb and the character development couldn't be more detailed. The pychoanalysis of each player is unmatched in other manga. You can't get better than this. The content is intelligent and accurate. The author did his homework on psychology, neurology, surgical procedures and the history of Germany around the time of the fall of the Berlin Wall. It's impressive. Not much on Japanese culture but that's also interesting. You have a Japanese protagonist and you have German culture. Morality and how far you can push someone until they loose their humanity is explored. The antagonist is facinating. In some novels he doesn't even make an appearance yet you feel his presence throght the elaborate descriptions of his character from the mouth of others. Nicely done. The action is non-stop, especially in volume four. The violence is very real and it will get to you. But you won't loose hope because the main character is so amazing.

"Monster" is a great achievement and a fantastic endeavor in manga. The story is great, sprawling through many years and full of small contained side stories within a investigative tale into the soul of a serial killer. The characters are well rounded, as deep as in novels, their personalities distinct and the narrative keeps secrets within secrets, that makes you keep on reading until the last page of its many volumes. It's a fantastic tale, full of philosophical insights of what is this thing we call "human nature" and the role of memories and emotions in giving one's life some kind of meaning in an indifferent universe. Fantastic!

5つ星のうち HASH(0x9318a330) Monster is really an incredible read in every sense 2010/12/23

For Dr. Tenma, a Japanese surgeon who's moved to Germany to work in a Dusseldorf hospital, work is all about saving people's lives. He's frustrated by the politics of the hospital, and how the lives of "important" people are put ahead of the lives of everyone else. When a boy with a bullet in his head is brought in, Dr. Tenma works on him instead of the mayor who's brought in shortly afterward. Dr. Tenma knows he's the only chance the boy has for living.

And the boy does live. But the mayor does not. Dr. Tenma is blamed and his career is virtually over. But then some of the hospital staff is murdered, including the director who was so opposed to Dr. Tenma's decision to save the boy over the mayor. Soon afterward, the little boy disappears and we learn that his parents have also been murdered. The only one left untouched in the bloodbath is the boy's twin sister, but she too has gone missing.

Years pass. Dr. Tenma is again a well-respected physician. The murders have yet to be solved and a serial killer (or killers?) is on the loose. And now well-to-do families with no children are being killed.

The lead suspect for all these murders? Dr. Tenma.

But who is the real culprit? Well, it appears to be the little boy Tenma saved, who's now grown into a man with blood on his hands. Yes, Dr. Tenma put his principles before his career, and it backfired, because he let the mayor die and saved the life of a monster.

All the same, how could a boy kill people? Let alone a boy who was wounded when the killings happened? There is more to this than meets the eye, so Dr. Tenma, needing to clear his name, investigates the background of the monster he helped unleash on Germany. The story gets stranger and stranger, and at this point, the reader is figuring out things alongside Dr. Tenma. We don't know any better than he does of what's happening.

Monster is really an incredible read in every sense. The drama is there, and the intrigue, and the passion for Dr. Tenma, who's a hero in the story from the very beginning. The art is also terrific, from character expressions to realistic portrayals of Germany, like the details done on Heidelberg Castle. The only real negative side would be the necessary suspension of disbelief at parts, but if you go along for the ride, it's absolutely worth it. This series is highly recommended.
