I enjoyed Monster. I though the pacing of the story was great, the characters beautifully developed and the story content consistent. After 70+ episodes though, I was gearing myself up for an epic ending and a strong moral that good prevails. When I finished the last episode though I found myself confused.
Where did Johann go?
Did the twins mother really choose one of them to go or was it just a continuation of Johann's "mind control"? Or just a dream of Tenma's?
Was this the memory that Anna said that Johann remembered and she didn't?
And was it Johann or Anna that actually attended the reading sessions?
Was all of Johann's killing justified by the fact that he was just a "troubled boy" that was manipulated by others?
These might be somewhat subjective but I would be extremely interested in discussing some of these questions with the other users here.
As I watched the last episode I didn't know how I felt, or how to rate the show here on A-P. I like an ending that can be interpreted different ways, but Johann disappearing out of the hospital room seemed to me like the story had to continue, even though I know more is not planned.
