    Another Monster Analysis

    Having read Urasawa's incredible manga series Monster, I have been reading the follow-up/recap Another Monster.

    I'm probably about a quarter of the way in now, and it's quite interesting the extra details you get about all the events that happened in the original story.

    It follows a reporter who is trying to investigate all that happened as he thinks it all relates to a crime he is currently looking into.

    I have been posting the analyses of the chapters up on my website Mature Manga so if you're interested feel free to take a look.

    Damn! How did I not know this is a thing? I really like Monster (in my top five manga/anime, maybe top three) but I didn't know there was a novel. I guess I just assumed that was it after the manga and anime. Your site has also led me to the "Perfect Edition". I had no idea there was another release. I already own a few of the manga volumes, but the idea of half the number of volumes as well-priced chunky versions was too good to resist, so I ordered the first one. (I also ordered Another Monster from a Japanese seller, just to add it to my collection.)

    I do have a bit of Japanese Monster merchandise, including a couple of versions of the "Nameless Monster" story book. Admittedly I've skim-read your article for the sake of avoiding spoilers. I'm quite eager to check out this story. I actually found a PDF of the translation from Reddit but I don't know whether it's the version you have.

    If you love Monster you'll really enjoy it. It's definitely for huge fans of the series, as like I said for the most part it's a recap with smatterings of extra details. I'm not going to spoil anything, but it gives a lot of extra details about the Red Rose Mansion and also a lot of details about Tenma and his personal history that were only alluded to.

    As far as I'm aware there are two different versions floating around online. One with images and one without. So if yours has images that's great. I think it is the same, I remember finding a copy on Reddit first too. I then contacted the translator just in case and I'm quite sure both versions were the same.

    Shame it hasn't got an official English translation, looking online it appears it has been translated into other languages.
