   Very interesting beginning for a bigger story to come
I was really interested in checking out this one out since I'm a big fan of Urasawa's other major work, Monster, he said. I was pleased to find this story so gripping, Robert told The Age. There are many questions I have, however, I see the story going in a very interesting direction, and I can't wait to read more.

   Naoki Urasawa at it's best
His work ethic and dedication to perfection made him one of the world's greatest minds. Also got it for very cheap conmared to retail, and the condition was perfect, the seller said.

   Better than I thought.
I did a search for the top 10 Manga series of all time and 20th Century Boys came up. I bought this book to see if I would like it and if not, I don't know. A French soldier fires a flare during a training exercise at the beach resort of Saint-Tropez. Even with the color blocking, the artwork is incredible and to think Urasawa did all the writing and artwork himself. The only compliment I can give it is that after I finished Vol. 1, I found the time was right to do it. I went out and bought Vol. 1 and then went back and bought Vol. 2. We'll probably have to play catchup, Ryan said on "The Late Show with David Letterman." I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to keep up with the series.

   Physical Quality + Story Quality = Perfect
Leaving a review is just a matter of trying to bring more attention to the story, McBride said. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the author of this review. I've been watching anime ever since I could remember, but decided that I should try to get into reading manga after hearing people say that some manga adaptations are actually good. I just recently got into manga and this story is definitely worth investing in, said Shusuke. It caught my attention because it was so heavily praised without an anime. After reading some free scans, I decided to ball out on collecting each volume of the Perfect Editions. It's a great story told with a lot of mystery, Jeffrey said.

   A Good Read
There are multiple characters with realistic goals, motivations and individual traits that make them feel real. Characters moving and interacting in fascinating and realistic ways, all the while discovering secrets that keep the plot moving. A mysterious, yet colossal organization that threatens the world's very existence. Meaningful dialogues with not a wasted moment, but in my opinion, check, Mr. Caramore said. The plot was clearly planned to perfection, with each character reacting realistically to their own character traits and motivations, he said. Those who have been refined and established as their own, not wavering from who they are in an unrealistic manner. The item was delivered as described. The package is in excellent condition, the book is in excellent condition, too. It smells like a fresh new book! Bonus points for players who get three or more.

   Great collection by one of the best Manga authors out there
If you like this author, you'll probably enjoy the next one. This is the first in a series of omnibus releases of another greatythriller from Naoki Urusawa. Not as serious as the original "Jaws," but just as intriguing. Follows a group of friends as they try to stop a deadly cult from destroying society. Whoopee?

   This edition really is Perfect for collecting this manga
Naoki Urasawa is probably one of the best writers of the mystery genre. This edition makes collecting 20th century rarities a lot easier. I'll be looking to release them both. His work is also unique, the color pages and double-page spreads add to the appeal of this volume. The first volume of the series depicts the early life of both Kenji and Friend, setting up all the characters, establishing the back story and prepping for the conflicts ahead.
