The Monster anime aired in the early 2000s and was made by Madhouse during the studio’s heyday. While the anime was popular, the manga source material was also well-known even before the anime adaptation.

After all, it is the manga series that made creator Naoki Urasawa renowned internationally.

At this point, Urasawa is among the most praised and respected manga artists. This is thanks not only to Monster but also to his other titles such as the sci-fi manga series 20th Century Boys.

He is also known for Pluto, which reinterprets Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy into a murder mystery.
