Monster


Description from AnimeNfo:

Dr. Tenma is a Japanese brain surgeon working in Germany. He has it all: incredible medical skills, a great job, and a beautiful fiancée who also happens to be the daughter of the hospital's director.

One day he is ordered to forgo operating on a critically injured man in favor of a more illustrious patient. Disillusioned by the hospital's politics, he decides from then on that he will do what he thinks is right, regardless of politics.

Some time later, a young boy and his twin sister are brought in. The boy has a bullet in his head and requires an operation that Dr. Tenma knows only he is capable of performing successfully. Just as Dr. Tenma is about to begin the procedure, the mayor is rushed into the hospital and the director instructs Dr. Tenma to leave the boy to operate on the critically ill mayor. Dr. Tenma decides that he will do what is right and go ahead with the boy's operation.

The young boy's operation ends in success but the surgeons operating on the politician fail. As a result, Dr. Tenma is passed over for a promotion and his fiancée calls off their engagement.

Soon after this incident, strange murders begin to occur, all of which benefit Dr. Tenma greatly. As a result, he becomes the prime suspect although the police have no evidence against him. It seems that the boy whose life he saved is heavily involved in it somehow and that there is much more to him than meets the eye.

I admit, the description sounds pretty boring. So boring in fact that I postponed watching it for months, despite the glowing reviews this series received from all over. And once I started watching I was caught in the flow of suspense and mystery.

If you want to prove to someone that anime are not just children cartoons (without resorting to a demonstration of tentacle sex to prove your point), then grab monster. If you want to watch a series that constantly keeps you awake and eager to follow the story to it's conclusion then start downloading now.

No disappointment possible.

I have to log in and say Thank You again for this series. I could not stop watching. It makes you think and ponder about too many things. It is a good thing that I am on vacation with nothing to do so I can watch it. :) Can't wait to go back to the US and download other series that you recently posted.

Do you like playing the game where you need to use wonderland Gold, when you do not have wonderland online Gold, you must borrow wonderland money from friends, or you buy wonderland Gold. If you get cheap wonderland online Gold, you can continue this game.
Do you like playing the game where you need to use flyff penya, when you do not have flyff money, you must borrow flyff gold from friends, or you buy flyff penya. If you get cheap penya, you can continue this game.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to (wow power leveling) those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
