Monster weaves the riveting story of brilliant Dr. Kenzo Tenma, a famous surgeon with a promising career at a leading hospital. Tenma risks his reputation and promising career to save the life of a critically wounded young boy. Unbeknownst to him, this child is destined for a terrible fate. A string of strange and mysterious murders begin to occur soon afterward, ones that professionally benefit Dr. Tenma, and he emerges as the primary suspect. Conspiracies, serial murders, and a scathing depiction of the underbelly of hospital politics are all masterfully woven together in this compelling manga thriller.
What sets this series apart from other anime was the choice of a rare theme (Music) and a naturalistic, almost realistic story plot and interplay of characters led by a protagonist whose personality evolves in each passing episode.
It’s mainly about Koyuki’s slow yet amusing metamorphosis from a typical middle school student with no exceptional characteristics or talents to a popular and passionate musician of a band founded by musically gifted U.S.-raised Japanese, Minami Ryuusuke, whom he met when he saved his patched dog named BECK. His mundane lifestyle was transformed by the band and inspired by Maho, Ryuusuke’s sister, who never fails to get the best of him.
- Original hit songs like “Moon on the Water” and “Slip Out”
- distinctive characters- their development and intertwined stories
- showcased a life-based drama of failure, success and struggle
- These attractions are downplayed by the shoddy animation.
When u bother to find out what causes her fear,
When u see her with respect and deep concern,
When nothing else matters more than the present,
And the past has been erased like it never occurred…
is probably a fantasy.
or an inch higher than reality.
Yet what is heaven for?
If not to keep us reaching? aiming? hoping?
Wet your eyes with delight, chuckles and heartbreaking moments…
Bitter Virgin is one of those manga works you’ll keep admiring. (or dreaming about)
