Is anyone else watching the fansubs of Urasawa Naoki's "Monster"? I've gotten through nine episodes so far, and it's been jaw-dropping great. It's about a Japanese doctor living in Germany and his desperate struggle to hunt down a serial killer. I swear I'm buying this the very instant it gets licensed and hits the shelf in the US.
I tried reading the Japanese version of the manga, but even after almost two years of college Japanese, I'm nowhere near ready yet. Complicated grammar, a lot of medical terms... and no furigana to be seen.
