Fall 2010/Spring 2011: Monster

Postby chronomeister on Tue Sep 07, 2010 7:50 pm

Thread rules:

1. Keep the thread on topic. OT posts will be euthanized.
2. If you have already seen episodes which have not been shown in SPAMM yet, don't post any spoilers or foreshadowing (That includes things like "wait until you see what happens in episode 7!" or "the ending of this show really sucks"). Speculation is OK, if you don't know what is going to happen.
3. If you're talking about a specific episode, say "In episode 6..." rather than "In last night's episode...". It will make things less confusing.

Possible topics for discussion:
Things you like/dislike about the series
Things you'd like to change
Your favorite/least favorite character
Symoblism or metaphor
Plotline? (No Spoilers!)
Any bits of Japanese culture featured in the show
Things you didn't understand
Similar series (but keep discussion on-topic)
Other works by the same director/animation house/etc

On the topic of similar series, has anyone been reading Billy Bat? Is it any good?

I felt like I needed a bit of an Urasawa break after Pluto.

I haven't read the entirety of Pluto yet, and I unfortunately haven't started on Billy Bat, so I can't help you there, buddy.

Also,
Any bits of Japanese culture featured in the show


Lol, domo. Domo. Domo. Domo. That's about it for Japanese culture.

Oh, and Malarky, I expect you to safely guard my boxset until you can return it to me. And it had better be in the condition I left it in. 8(

People giving away spoilers to shows like Monster that I really wanted to watch was part of the reason I quit going to SPAMM in my final year. I know I'm miles away and cannot enforce my anti-spoiler mantra but please keep in mind that some people are enjoying that show for the first time and its not a haha Vampire Knight anime. Think of the rest of the audience and save the comments for something silly. :P

I'd like to inspire some confidence, but from looking at my Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni boxset after the summer showings were all finished, it looks like it had been used as a mallet and a coaster.
