Naoki Urasawa's Monster (manga, vol. 11) translated by Satch Watanabe

Naoki Urasawa's Monster, Vol. 11 - Naoki Urasawa, Satch Watanabe

511 Kinderheim was a nasty place.

So, was it basically a spy factory? It was a shock to learn that a man so nice as Grimmer came from there, but it explains somewhat why he is the way he is.

This volume left me with so many questions. Okay, so now we know what Johan's greatest fear is. What does that mean for Nina, considering that she doesn't want to be anywhere near him? Also, now that it's been revealed that Johan

was killing while dressed as Nina, I can't help but wonder, why? Why look like her while he kills?

(show spoiler)

So of course I have to read on.
