Naoki Urasawa's Monster (manga, vol. 14) translated by Nobu Yamada and Masaru Noma

Naoki Urasawa's Monster, Volume 14: That Night - Naoki Urasawa, 浦沢 直樹, Nobu Yamada, Masaru Noma

I'm really confused about Johan and Anna/Nina's timeline. When did the Red Rose Mansion stuff happen, 511 Kinderheim, Nina and Johan's mother, etc.? There are a lot of parts here, and while the connections are still interesting, it can be a bit much.

I've started to question whether Johan's death would really be the end of this series. I spent so much of the series thinking that Johan was the series' titular monster, but he didn't just spring into the universe fully formed. He was molded, and we're seeing more of that now.
