I am looking for a good manga to read and i heard so much about Monster beeing a masterpiece.
Currently reading Yami no matsuei but unfortunately it is unfinished yet

As you can see from my profile i am usually a battle shounen Fan but i also like a good Story with character devolpment.
Not so much rape, sexual or depresssing things


Do you think someone like me would enjoy reading Monster?
I am interesting about you opinions

Monster is a masterpiece from ep 25 till the end. As for 1-24 they are not as good as the Land of Waves Arc of Naruto.

I say watch the anime. The first 24 eps are kinda hard to pass, but from 25 its a masterpiece that u will wish never ended.

So yeah 1-24(7/10) 25-74 (10/10)

Was it so hard to read to understand he talked about the manga.

Anyway, it's hard to say, from your manga and anime lists, you haven't read/seen anything like Monster. Monster is a thriller, and a very good one, with a very slow pacing, a lot of build up, great characters and a not always linear story telling. No rape or shit like that there, and excellent character developpment (I particulary like Runge). But I really advice you to read it.

What makes Monster so great in my opinion are the people the protagonist meets and interacts with on his journey and how even side characters have a development arc. Every one of them feel like real people with real problems. Maybe it's just me but shounen aren't all that different from what I described.
