    Author: Naoki Urasawa
    Synopsis: Growing older is pretty rough and Kenji is finding out just how hard it can be as life starts wearing down on him. On top of trying to make ends meet running a convenience store, he has to care for the niece that his missing sister left in his care. Memories of youth make it easier, until those memories come back to haunt you.

    Kenji and his old friends are slowly being drawn into a mysterious conspiracy that could threaten the world. Who is the mysterious "friend", and how does he tie into Kenji's youth? Why are there disappearances and deaths tied into Ochanomizu University? The friend's memories hold the keys to the puzzle, but years between cloud the clues.

    The strange occurances and the reach of the "friend" conspiracy grow by the day. It will all culminate on New Year's Eve 2000. Will Kenji and the rest of the group be able to put together the puzzle and save the world?

    I personally preferred 20th Century Boys over Monster, I don't know how far you read but I would definitely recommend you get back into it. I think it started a bit slow compared to Monster but in the end it's one of the best mangas I have ever read.

    I've read somewhere that there is going to be a triology of 20th century movies. Looking forward to it.

    how would you guys rank the three mangas by the mangaka: 20th century boys, Pluto, and monster? i have read 20th century boys, and my brother has read monster and is in the process of reading Pluto. i don't fell like picking up a new manga, but my brother keeps nagging at me to read them. Are the other two better?

    I haven't read Pluto yet, but like ironmaidenlive I'd rank Monster higher than 20th Century Boys. They are both awesome though.
