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.

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.

As of writing, Monster is finally available to watch on Netflix. In the past, Monster used to only be available in North America, but it's finally available on Netflix elsewhere.

Netflix often updates its anime library with new titles, including classic ones, so Monster made it to the European version of the platform eventually.

It is currently available in the original Japanese dub with English subtitles. A French dub is also on Netflix, but no news of an English dub has come out as of writing.
