Dr. Kenzo Tenma is a brilliant neurosurgeon living in Germany. He is respected by his superiors for his excellent skills, envied by his peers, and engaged to the daughter of the hospital director. Dr. Kenzo Tenma is well on his way to ascending the hospital hierarchy. But one day everything changes for him when a little boy is brought in with a serious head injury, along with his twin sister, after a brutal family massacre. His superior orders him to abort the boy's surgery and operate on the mayor instead, who was brought in much later. Having dealt with a similar situation before, and been troubled with a crisis of conscience because of his choice, this time he decides to not follow orders. The boy survives, but the mayor dies, leaving Dr. Kenzo Tenma's career in ruins, his engagement to his fiancé broken. His downward spiral begins when one night, while he is out cold in a drunken stupor the twins vanish from the hospital and the director and two other doctors die mysteriously. Dr. Kenzo Tenma's position is restored. With no evidence to convict him, he is released and goes on to attain the position of the hospital director. Until one day...
Is Monster good?
Monster is one of the better anime out there, probably the best suspense thriller anime. It has a clever story with interesting mysteries, great characters, and tense psychological drama. Monster is an amazing anime that people that don't watch anime probably also will like.
Why is Monster recommended?
Monster has lots of mysteries and Dr. Kenzou Tenma has to solve interesting puzzles to solve these mysteries. Monster is more of a thriller than Elementary, and Kenzou does not solve his problems as easily as Sherlock. But if you like Elementary, mystery, and thrillers, then you will not go wrong by watching Monster.
