Naoki Urasawa's Monster (manga, vol. 13) translated by Hirotaka Kakiya

Naoki Urasawa's Monster, Vol. 13: The Escape - Naoki Urasawa, Hirotaka Kakiya

The interconnectedness of everyone may now be too much even for me. Tenma's fabulous lawyer

just happens to have had a connection to Roberto and the picture book author. Right.

(show spoiler)


This volume has a bit of a flashback to the horrible events in volume 6, when Eva first met Roberto. Here, it's revealed that it really did horrify her to have sex with Roberto...which makes sense because, if I remember correctly, he made it fairly clear that it wouldn't bother him to kill her. I'm just glad that Urasawa makes it clear that all this upset her, because I haven't always been certain about Eva's emotions. She's good at covering everything up with a mask of loathing and disdain.
