In this episode of Boku No Stop! we discuss episodes 1-3 of Monster.
We begin a new season with something unlike the shows we've covered so far: Naoki Urasawa's Monster. A crime thriller period piece, it follows Dr. Kenzo Tenma, a Japanese doctor in Germany, as he finds himself drawn into a web of politics, murder, and deceit that threatens to swallow him alive.
But at this point in the story he's just a naive 20-something who's colorblind to the concept of a woman made out of red flags.
- The opening theme to Monster, Grain, compared to...
- Transiente, by Quilapayun. I later found out that it wasn't the opening, this was used in the anime at a certain scene (in the Japanese broadcast only, never internationally). It's still good!
