A wonderful woven web of suspense and mystery
I read the manga a while back simply by chance. I was insanely hooked by the plot, character development and twist of fate Dr. Kenzo Tenma must now face alone (at the beginning). Tracking down a killer he himself saved long ago, If you are a fan of mystery novels and show this first vol. will leave you wanting so much more.

Mystery and Suspence throught the series!
This anime has been made with mystery, suspence, and a bit of drama from the very beginning to the clapamatic end. The music is great....if you like suspence flicks this is the anime series for you. I got this title for a very low price of $39 dollars. It was a steal of a deal and I feel in love with it at the first episode.

finally in the US
i am glad they finally decided to release this here in the US. I just wish they were putting more episodes in each box (but not cramming more on each disc, just more discs) since this is a long series here.
this anime and the manga it is based on are great. one of the best of the last many years.

Monster is the reason why I watch anime. The storyline is just outstanding; it only keeps getting better and better. My only complain is Viz never finish releasing all the episodes on DVD. I had to finish watching the serie on youtube(or you can buy the episodes off itune/PSN).
More shows like this need to be released here in North America; I really hope Viz will released the remaining episodes on DVD. Perhaps they stopped because the sales for the first box wasnt't as high as they had hope?...Anyways I hope you all buy this box set to support this serie. You won't regret it!
