+9 (yeas:12 nays:3)
The Baby. Just...the Baby
+7 (yeas:8 nays:1)
That the voice actor changed when Johan was crossdressing. It's an understandable choice, but it would have been more authentic to keep him as is.
+1 (yeas:1 nays:0)
The 2nd ending. "Make It Home"
0 (yeas:2 nays:2)
Johan being a wizard. Seriously, he does all these impossible things off-screen with just the hand-wave "Johan did it" that it begins to seem like a parody.
-1 (yeas:11 nays:12)
That the ending wasn't much more...final.
-3 (yeas:7 nays:10)
Runge not taking his turn at the karaoke, on the flimsy excuse that "I am Tenma. I do not fit in with Japanese society". C'mon, it would have made a great moment for the anime. Especially in character.
-3 (yeas:1 nays:4)
Johan's Infrequent appearences. Actully, they don't bug me so much, but I would've liked to see more of him.
Interesting when your biggest complaint about a series is more of a suggestion than a complaint...

The humorous parts (such as they are) are much less well integrated than for 20th Century Boys
. Compare and contrast:
Plus also, and YMMV
, going through 20th Century Boys
back-to-back during insomnia works ok; going through Monster
in same state makes your brain make up bits in self-defense, like why isn't
there a bit in Prague for Johan to break into "I enjoy being a girl"
, or at least Suk to sing "On the street where you live"?
-6 (yeas:5 nays:11)
So much of the cast was missing for the climax. Especially Dieter (understandable since he's a kid), Eva, and Dr. Reichwein.
-6 (yeas:1 nays:7)
Eva. She deserved a bullet.
-12 (yeas:2 nays:14)
Volume 4 of the manga. It's a preachy anti-racism sermon. I agree with the message, but it just felt...shoehorned into the plot.
-22 (yeas:5 nays:27)
That Tenma and Nina hadn't ended up together.... or at least had a good fuck.
