PLOT

Monster is the perfect anime series for those enthusiasts who are into films or shows with a dark theme or with a touch of mystery, drama, and suspense for a bit of excitement. Monster is a one-stop anime for those who always seek for an adventure and at the same time, chills.

The writer of Monster is none other than Naoki Urasawa. Of course, it was published by Shogakukan on June 21, 2002, before it was adapted into the popular anime television series that was enjoyed and is being enjoyed by anime enthusiasts up until now. The anime was produced by VAP, Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions, and Nippon Television Network. It is rated R+ and each episode runs for 24 minutes.

Monster revolves around the main character of the animated series who is a surgeon by profession. He is Dr. Tenma Kenzou, an exceptionally talented doctor in Japan, a neurosurgeon to be specific. His talent and skills in his own field reached the continent of Europe. As he is also being praised in Germany. Dr. Tenma Kenzou is set to marry the daughter of the director of the hospital he is working for. From that, he is also set to inherit the hospital’s hierarchy.

He is a just and fair doctor, driven by an incident that made him believe that everybody, regardless of social status, are equal in the eyes of medicine and have equal rights to be treated fairly.

He was once told to perform a brain surgery to save the life of a popular performer in the country. As expected, he performed the surgery very well and saved the life of the famous personality. His work was commended by his fiancée, his colleagues, the director himself, and the whole hospital staff.

Despite his success, Dr. Kenou’s conscience was haunted by  the death of the immigrant worker who was put away to prioritize the famous performer. This made Dr. Kenou reassess his values as a doctor and promised to prioritize the ones who need him more despite their social status.

One specific incident is about to change Dr. Tenma Kenou’s fate when he encounters a familiar dilemma. He was once again told by the hospital director to prioritize performing surgery on the mayor of their land and set aside a little boy who also needed an emergency surgery.

The little boy named Johan Liebert was apparently shot in an incident that cost both his parent’s lives. He was delivered in the hospital before the mayor arrived, however, because the mayor is an important figure, the director told Dr. Kenou to prioritize him.

Staying true to his sworn duty, Dr. Kenou decided to stand his ground and perform the surgery on the little boy. He was successful of course, however, this had a major effect on his status as a doctor, specifically in the hospital he was working in. His status as the next director of the hospital was apparently removed because of that specific moment that he refused to prioritize the mayor.

After a few days of the surgery, the little boy mysteriously disappeared, which was followed by the equally mysterious death of two doctors from the hospital as well as the director himself. This turn of events left the hospital with no choice but to replace the director with Dr. Tenma Konou because there were no other suitable candidates.

There wasn’t enough evidence to put the blame on Dr. Kenou, that is why he was released, and he restored his status now as the new hospital director. However, through a series of investigations, the evidence slowly points the blame to the little boy Dr. Kenou operated on.

Several years later, roughly nine years after he performed the operation on the little boy, he once again encountered the monster he saved. Without knowing the consequences and by following his sworn value, he unintentionally set a monster out of its cage and caused an unchangeable series of events that requires him to take on a journey of taking responsibility for his mistakes and to find the truth.
