Don't really know much anime in the same vein as Monster but as far a psych thriller / horror / mindfuck is concerned

Paranoia Agent
Trapeze
Blue Literature
One Outs
Yugo the negotiator
When They Cry

eh when it comes to anime it stops there, you gotta read his other works

pluto like the one i mentioned and 20st century boys which is awesome

20st century boys is basically about a group of adults who in their childhood( 5-7), came up with this childish way of how to bring about the world apocalypse, not they are in their 40s and somehow everything they thought up has been coming true. There is a live action movie about it but i saw the first one and it was a disappointment.

that writer is one of a kind man, not gonna to find another one like him


Edit: OHHHH snap i just read that his Pluto story is going to be a live action/CG film made by the dudes that made despicable me holy... how the heck they are going to pull that off, his pluto is definitely not for kids.


edit2: oh duh you could watch the count of monte cristo......i think im the only one here who watches it, it is JUST AS good as monster.

when circadas cry, can be so damn cute but be so damned brutal, but it gets boring and repetitive(VERY VERY REPETITIVE, LIKE LITERALLY REPETITIVE)

You really are dumb. I told you to check out the manga, which I imagine you haven't till then. The manga is way superior... from what little I can rememba.

Now go watch School Days and make it your avatar like a good lil boy.

i read alot of the manga and it as stupid as the show

if you want gore read Battle Royale

"In the future, random Jr. High School classes are chosen to compete in a game called Battle Royale. The rules: only one student can survive after 3 days on an island or else they all perish. Weapons are handed out and each student is sent out into the field alone and unprepared for the horror that awaits them."

the manga is waaaay better than the movies

Once it picks up it never really slows down.

If you like an ensemble cast, pron to dying, awesome art, sci-fi, and a lot of fuck ya moments then reading gantz is a must.

remember watching one episode of gantz the anime, and the group was on top of a flight of stairs, with a big fucking monster like 100 feet in front of them, and they were talking about a group of guys beating up on a homeless man....FOR LIKE TEN MINUTES. srsly. The monsters, the group, all of them just stood in one spot for 10 minutes talking(well the monster were sitting there like herp derp), thats some naruto shippuuden shit

The anime branches off from manga pretty quickly. If you haven't read up to the part in the manga where the whole group dies except for the protagonist and the vamps are introduced then follow Luc's example and take my rec.

manga scans are alright, though, they are more entertaining than anime screenshots.
