If you're looking for mystery anime to test your brain, don't only look into new titles. Monster is a true anime classic that has haunted us for some time with its intense ethical dilemmas and terrifying antagonist. But where to watch the Monster anime? Netflix, Amazon, Crunchyroll, or elsewhere?
Monster is the story of Dr. Kenzo Tenma, a Japanese neurosurgeon working in Germany. Engaged with the hospital director's daughter and with a clear talent for brain surgery, Tenma is enjoying elite status.
But when - against his conscience - he prioritizes treating a celebrity over another patient who arrived first, resulting in the latter's death, Tenma swears never to make the same mistake again.
Thus, when the town mayor is in dire need of surgery, Tenma refuses to abandon the patient he's operating on at the time - a young boy. This decision, however, will haunt Tenma for the rest of his life.
Tenma's choice to follow his conscience costs him and endangers his status, but all those who could demote him wind up mysteriously dead. With no evidence against him, Tenma is free to return to his everyday life.
But what will Tenma do when Johan, the boy he saved, turns out to be a monster - a serial killer who can sweet-talk nearly anyone into killing themselves?
Bereft of anything that used to give his life meaning, Tenma sets out to destroy the monster he has created. But this will not be an easy task, given that this monster might be one of the smartest anime characters of all time...
Is Monster on Netflix?
At the time of writing Monster isn't available to watch on Netflix worldwide. Those in North America can, however, watch the show on Netflix.
Netflix often updates its anime library with new titles, including classic ones, so Monster might make it to the European version of the platform one day in the near future.
Is Monster on Amazon Prime?
Once again, Monster is available on Amazon Prime Video, but, this is only the case for fans based in North America.
Is Monster on Crunchyroll?
Monster is not available on Crunchyroll at this time, though this might change in the future.
Is Monster on Funimation?
Funimation is not currently one of the places where you can watch Monster.
At this point, people might wonder if Funimation is still worth it after the Crunchyroll merger.
To be honest, this depends on whether any of your favorites are still exclusive on Funimation. In any case, we don't expect it to acquire new anime, meaning that Monster is unlikely to end up there.
Is Monster on Hulu?
Monster isn't currently available to watch on Hulu. However, the Hulu library keeps expanding, so you're bound to find some anime to love on that streaming service!

Where Else Can I Watch Monster?
Monster is currently only available to watch on Netflix and Amazon Prime for North America-based fans.
However, as this is a truly great psychological anime most of which unfolds in Germany, there's definitely an audience for it in Europe.
When this time comes, we'll update this space with more information so stay tuned!
