In this volume at last we meet Johan in person!
Ah, Gerhard Freidl would be perfect as Johan Lieber, wouldn't he?

But before we see Johan we meet Eva. She is unhappy, lonely and miserable however it is a bit hard do sympathise with her she still is obsessed with Tenma and wallows in self pity. I hope she will be able to pull herself together.
And now more pictures! Olga Prokofieva as Eva Heinemann

and Naoki Tanaka as Dr Kazuo Tenma
Monster is a carefully constructed thriller that builds with each passing chapter. It really must be read from the beginning.

Lunge is closing in on Tenma, but his relentlessness begins to cloud his judgement regarding procedure and methods. Ev's life spirals further down the drain and Tenma himself continues his relentless pursuit of Johan.

Monster loses a little momentum for the first time in this volume, albeit just slightly. The first half of the volume is perfectly paced and full of the tens
This is the continuation of the Monster Manga series. Once you start reading the first volume, you can’t put it down! With each volume the plot gets thicker and the suspense increases. I loved how the story takes place over different part of Europe; there is a feel that this is “Jason Borne” in Manga form! I thought it was also neat to see how this was originally in Japanese but the author and the artist gave great attention to detail concerning Europe, it’s “look,” the specific city and locatio ...more

After sitting on my shelf and renewing them twice from the library I finally started reading these (after stopping at volume two and not reading much of anything) again. I ended up tearing through them in a couple of days because I needed to know what happened!

The story flows so nicely. You're caught in this twilight time. It's not a tv show, it's not a novel, it's both. The suspense is definitely edge-of-your-seat and with each cliffhanger ending you automatically start reaching for the next vo

Concentrating on new, younger characters the sixth volume of "Monster" is no less intriguing or mature that its predecessors. We get a nice mystery, some wonderful character drama, and- best of all- it becomes apparent that the saga is getting very near to Johan, the charismatic "monster" whose destructive trail of dehumanizing hate we have witnessed throughout this story.
Blair Conrad
Not a lot of Tenma, but the Eva/Deiter interactions make this book worthwhile on their own. A little bit of a slowish confusing intro to the “Vampire of Bavaria” arc, but even that has its appeal.
Fantastic! We get to see a lot more facetime for mr. monster, even if he isn't doing anything particularly nefarious on screen. None of this is so much cat-and-mouse as it is a delicious character study. The tale is suspenseful and I'm very unsure about everyone's real motivation. The power of the writing is so strong that I feel like I really should know, and I can back up every theory, but just below the surface there's very interesting reversed currents.

It was shocking to see such a monsterou

Naoki Urasawa, Monster, vol. 6: The Secret Woods (ViZ, 1995)

Tenma is still on Johan's trail, but it's time for the long-awaited (and final?) confrontation between Tenma and Lunge, which started at the end of book five. The depths of Lunge's obsession are finally revealed in all their glory. Later on, Eva—one of the few people who can independently attest to Johan's existence—tracks Tenma to the secluded home of a mob boss with a fondness for French chicken dishes. Unfortunately, it seems she may
Johan is one very complicated character. still i can't form an image of who he is really. i'm starting to like him for some reason now that we've seen him at last. i really like this manga the story and the characters are very interesting.
a third of the way through. will these characters, who are outside the core three, survive for more than another chapter? who knows! i doubt it!

We finally get to see more of Johan. The ending was very touching.

When you find yourself interested in psychoanalysis, this manga is for you. The best of psychological thriller manga for me. This mangaka really knows how to build up our curiosity which makes this manga quite amazing.

Another great volume! This one has two surprise twists and the return of our favorite girl, Eva. Look out Tenma!
The story continues to twist and is only more and more compelling. The illustrations are excellent. I love this style.
It was great! Matt insisted i read this graphic novel series. A real page turner--read right through it.
This series keeps getting better and better!
