More of a filler volume, which any long series needs to drive the plot slowly with dropping hints such as "The Conspiracy of 1970?!?" What is that? Sounds ominous? We shall find out next time on Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys!!! Same time, same channel!

There was one big plot point dropped about Kiriko at the lab which was a jaw dropper, and whenever they bring in Kenji's music it's always a heartfelt moment. Those were some great highlights of this volume, along with Mon-Chan's note/research.

The only thing I could say after reading this is WOW WOW. This is definitely a master piece. Yeah there were parts in the book that were a little bit exaggerated or too much (especially towards the end). However, this story was so amazing and so well written that those parts do not even matter. The art was amazing, the characters, the story, everything fit really well with each other. One of my favorite manga of all times!

Additional turns to the narrative. A highlight of this volume is the fate (?) of Sadakiyo.

We finally get to see Kanna's mother and a shocking revelation. Though, for me it wasn't shocking at all. Since there were quite a few hints and clues laid out before pointing in this direction. Also Kanna's real power starts to wake up. She already made a big miracle possible, now lets see how she does it from here. Another mystery adds to the tab, as the higher ups of "Friends" party talk about "The lies of 1970". What does that mean?

The 11th volume of "20th Century Boys" features more action and suspense and also new revelations that many people have been waiting for and definitely will have some major impact in the next volume.

As always, Naoki Urasawa knows how to grab the attention of the reader. His artwork and how he is able to capture the sense of action and emotion through the pages is magnificent and so far, this series has been engrossing and highly enjoyable thus far.

Needless to say, readers are being setup for som

Another excellent volume. The story had at times seemed to drag to me with the plot extended to three different time periods, and what felt like somewhat arbitrary jumps from one to another. However, this volume is focused almost entirely in 2015, the furthest future timeline, and all the flashbacks are brief and immediately shed light on the primary, 2015 timeline. Very little of 2000 or the earlier 1970's in this one, but the focus is a good thing, and when we are back in those timelines, the ...more

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I went from reading volume 8 to 11 and none between. Oddly, it doesn't seem that I missed much. This was an interesting edition and I enjoyed how it moved along and the characters.

The threads holding this series from the first volume to this still holds strong and it blows me away how excellent this series has been. The Kanna reveals have been jaw dropping.
Alex Scales
Half-way through the series and things are chugging along exactly the way you expect things would for a manga that lasts 22 (24, technically) volumes: its getting ridiculous.

Kenji, the main character of the first five volumes, has vanished all together only to be replaced by his 17-year-old neice, Kanna. Urasawa doesn't waste any time hyping her up: She rushes into a shoot out between rival gangs and orders the thugs around like children, uses psychic powers to gamble, and a good chunk of one vo

After the fast-paced and rich-in-revelations "The Faceless Boy," the saga slows down a bit and gives more focused to the characters, particularly Kanna and her reaction to the shocking revelation she received of herself in the final page of the previous volume. Urasawa writes character well, and he still manages to keep the story flowing forward on multiple fronts. Everything is clearly gearing up to further dramatic high points which this series offers graciously. We also get more flashbacks to ...more

Escarbar en el pasado. Aparecen ciertas pistas medianamente reveladoras que parecen culpar a personas cercanas a Kenji de la liberación del virus que casi diezma a la humanidad en el 2000. También aparecen nuevos personajes que tuvieron relación con Amigo en los 60's/70's.

Se dan pistas de cosas ,pero no puedo evitar sentir que el misterio parece estar siendo más enrevesado de lo debido, además que la conclusión de este arco no se vislumbra tan pulido como el anterior y a la vez es más extenso.

Getting tired of this. I love Urasawa style, he is a master storyteller and I love the way he draws, it's very cinematic. Its the soap-opera aspect I have a problem with, it just goes on and on... I know Manga is big business and the more issues the better, but there are other books I want to read and this just takes too long. Not to mention the cost, if this wasn't available in my Public Library I wouldn't dream of reading more than a few issues. ...more

So Kana after learning she is Amigos daughter learns about her mother past, how she was apparently involved with the disease or the vaccine.
A very interesting development into Kanas past.
Also we see that the dream-lady might have some side plan with one of the other people close to amigo.

So, she's actually the daughter of Godzilla, right? I guess that means I've successfully "managed my expectations".
Damn I love these in-jokes, even if, or especially because, they're so oddball. It's almost like no one could make this stuff up, and yet, here we are.

Just like the TV series Lost, where you just get complications and refereences to stuff that sounds deep (The Conspicary of 1970! The Giant Hamster of Hiroshima!) without any real plot development.
