Josef "I beat Elden Ring" Qazi’s review published on Letterboxd:
So, for the past few weeks I've been watching the entirety of Monster, and what a great journey it has been! I dropped the show after like 20 of its 74 episodes a couple years ago and I'm so glad that I finally got back to it! Unlike other mystery/thriller anime such as Death Note, Monster is completely grounded in reality. It tells a truly heartbreaking story with an incredibly realistic and frightening villain. Our main character Kenzo Tenma is also great and doesn't at all get overshadowed by the fantastic Johan. While I was never bored with the show at all, it did have some weaker spots in the middle that were not as interesting as the main conflict between Kenzo and Johan. But Monster is an incredible show overall that I loved.
