Tenma vs. Lunge, the rematch 27 Jan. 2010
By Robert Beveridge - Published on
Format: Paperback
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 not be alone... the volume concludes with the beginnings of a story arc involving a Munich university, a blind rich old guy, and one of his readers, who may or may not be harboring a secret. Where's Tenma in all this last story? I've no clue, but I look forward to finding out in Book Seven. Urasawa wanders a bit plotwise, as he has throughout the series, but he's a consummate thriller writer, and every digression has a place sooner or later. *** ½

"Monster" series 6 Jan. 2007
By Thomas M. Dale - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These book are fantastic! The plot is very complicated and there are lots of characters. I believe there are 16 volumes total, and they are being released about every other month. You almost have to reread the volume before to reacquaint yourself with some of the minor characters due to the lag time. Maybe your memory is better than mine. I', also reading the "Deathnote" series and I think Monster is vastly superior in story, dialogue, character development, and artwork.
"Chasing after a criminal like Tenma is the most fun he could ever have." 22 Dec. 2014
By para - Published on
Format: Paperback
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 tension I expect from the series. The maneuvering of various interested parties and the way everything plays out is gripping and yet filled with subtleties and foreshadowing.

The second half is where things slow down. The jump to the college campus and several chapters of buildup featuring new characters is decently done, but also a bit jarring and a more gradual build than usual for this manga. There's also more of a "foregone conclusion feel" than normal in this arc. It does eventually pick back up with some twists and an intriguing hook for the next volume.

Though not entirely up to the lofty standards previously set, volume 6 is still an excellent installment overall for Monster.
Happy to have found Naoki Urasawa's Monster Vol.6 23 Feb. 2011

This item was sent to me on time and in new condition as promised. I also received it when promised which was in time to give away as a birthday gift. My child loves this series of manga books but we seem to have a problem finding some of the books in Naoki Urasawa's Monster collection. Great mystery and suspense.
