The tension is ratcheted up as the Pope arrives in Japan. Will Kanna and company be in time to thwart the Friends from assassinating him? Or is there an even more malevolent plan in the works? It could well be the end of the world, yet there is a glimmer of hope riding across the rainbow.

This is quite possibly the volume of 20th Century Boys yet. Naoki Urasawa has brought his game with this new volume. The return of some "friends" make this a thrilling and compulsive read. Urasawa has created a genuinely terrifying villian who thrills and chills you at the same time. There are images in this volume that will stick with me for quite awhile. Can't wait for #16.

For a few volumes already the "20th Century Boys" saga has been building up to a recreation of the 1971 World Expo, an important event in the childhood of the main characters. In a near-future totalitarian Japan that very same Expo with its futuristic pavilions is rising again, overshadowed by the death of the country's recently deceased dictator only known as The Friend. For a while now our protagonists opposing the government have known that the Pope is going to the expo and a prophecy the Fri ...more

Why am I upset with this manga, now, after so much praise? It's not because of the perfectly balanced foreshadowing. Nor is it because I kind of half-expected this storytime outcome. No. I'm upset because I wanted the bad guy to have stayed dead and have the adventure continue as cleverly as it had before.

Although, if I'm going to be perfectly honest, seeing the pope get saved like that was pretty funny, even if it brings up a whole mess of messiah like complications. I mean, seriously!

Well... I still want to see the end of it but i'm quite disappointed of how things go. Its just a little bit too much, I guess.
So bad while the previous volumes were so good!

Introduction of even more characters (with backstories) and a chunk of plotline, and then have the denouement of part 2 of the arc? And give a 3 page teaser of the next volume which opens up another chunk of potential that we all hoped would appear? Only another 7 books to go...

Urasawa never tires of restlessly reinventing this story with each passing volume. Brilliant.
Stephen
Things are really starting to hot up now. Very exciting. This was a good volume.
Fredrik Strömberg
Upping the ante yet again, and keeping my interest going. Not bad for a 15th volume.
Michael
Not to damn with faint praise, but hands down the best manga i've ever read.

This is the end (of the world), my friend. This is the end.
