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.

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.

Sigue manteniendo el ritmo, pero vuelve a dar la sensación de "a ver cómo alargo esto un poco más".

Kanna's crew has just expanded by one, and we have Father Nitani's backstory. I kind of wish Nitani had the opportunity to bring the Pontiff on board, but ah well.

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!

This volume was really powerful. It showed how the "Friend" introduced himself to the world as God, the False God. And soon after that, the world fell into ruin. Even those close to the friend couldn't grasp the length of "Friend's" scheming. I really liked one dialogue from this volume. "We must be aware of the False books. It contains some dangerous yet appealing altercation which lead people astray. We call those books "The Devil's Prophecies"."

Its the pope visit to the Japan Expo and the Amigo funerals still going.

Kana's groups try to stop the pope from being murdered. But some big event happens that will change the story from that point forward.

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...

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!

Things are really starting to hot up now. Very exciting. This was a good volume.

Upping the ante yet again, and keeping my interest going. Not bad for a 15th volume.

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

Urasawa never tires of restlessly reinventing this story with each passing volume. Brilliant.
