Should be very fun to watch though.

Very true, what drew me in was the fact that no one was leaving the game and death was real, but I'll still watch it regardless.

I started that a few years ago and really, really enjoyed it. But I'm somewhere around 50/70 and haven't picked it back up yet. I really need to knock it out because it's so good.

Monster is the GOAT. If you're a manga guy, be sure to check out Urasawa's other works (20th Century boys, Pluto in particular). Billy Bat is his current work, it's a bit convoluted but he's tying it all together. Crazy shit.

Just finished Monster and it has a good case. Would give it 10/10, same as 20th Century Boys. Need to check out Pluto, Urasawa is a brilliant mangaka.

Wouldn't say it's the GOAT though. IMO, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is the GOAT manga. Berserk is conditional depending on how (if it does at all) finishes, but the Golden Age arc was a masterpiece in every sense, especially if you read it all at once and don't wait months for the each issue to come out.

Never read Nausicaa, I'll have to check it out. Berserk is definitely legit, I'm a big seinen fan so I can certainly appreciate it.

It's been so long since I've read Nausicaa that I don't really remember what happened, but it left me with the 'yeah, no doubt in my mind, this is the GOAT' feeling after I finished it. It's only like 7 volumes, but an incredibly dense read. I do recall that the character development and world building blows anything else I've read/seen out of the water.

Me too, completely prefer seinen to shounen. I'd also recommend Shin Angyo Onshi (10/10), Vagabond (9/10), Gantz (8/10) and Hellsing (8/10) if you haven't already read them.
