>As I said, it WAS slow, but the cast of characters kept me going.
Yep, it's a slow burn but very worth it. I was surprised I was able to keep up with it despite not being a fan of longer shows, I'm guessing the dub helped in some regard.
>I thought Johan's motivation was that of causing chaos wherever he went, but it all made sense once it was explained he was erasing his existence.
Yeah, as I said in my other post I originally thought it was about another Hitler but I after that I thought that it was just that Johan was a force of chaos and Tenma noticed this and since he saved him he decided it was up to him to stop him, which Johan gladly accepted since if Tenma doesn't stop him he'd continue doing this. It wasn't until I read up on it that I actually understood the ending, my own stupidity at seeing the bigger picture I guess.
>I was a little under that impression as well but with all the parallels of Johan being the Antichrist I expected someone wanting to use him to kill people indiscriminately
For me, it was the scenes I saw, the neonazis and the whole German/East European feeling it had.
If you're okay with watching some videos on Monster, I remember finding these in 2020 and was a fun distraction for a while to watch. If not, that's cool thought I'd share regardless:
