20th Century Boys (Urusawa Naoki)

Post by Hikikomori-san » Tue Mar 23, 2010 11:31 am

I'm surprised a topic hasn't been made on one of Urusawa Naoki's masterpieces.

This manga's chockful of plot, twists, character development and uh, did I mention twists?

Info @ Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20th_Century_Boys

The manga's sprouted a Live-action movie trilogy. I found it interesting that Toshiaki Karasawa played the main character in the movies, because Toshiaka-san played the main antagonist in the Casshern movie (which I whole-heartedly enjoyed). I don't keep up with Japanese actors (or any actors really) so I find it a treat when I see actors again in different movies.

If anyone hasn't read this series yet, I suggest they do so. It's a fine work of literature and is one of Urusawa-san's best works since Monster.
