    Montage by Watanabe Jun



    Montage
    By : Watanabe Jun
    Published in : Young Magazine (Kodansha)
    Genre : Mystery, Thriller

    Synopsis :

    One day, 10-year-old Yamato and his friend Miku discover a man in a back alley who's suffering from vicious stab wounds. The man recognizes Yamato, and uses his last breath to share a secret with the children: Yamato's father was the perpetrator of a bank robbery that is known throughout the country as the most puzzling unsolved crime of the 20th century. He warns them to "never trust anyone".
    Miku makes Yamato swear to keep the man's final words a secret. A few days later, Yamato's father is found dead, and the boy is taken in by Miku's family. The death is ruled as an accident, but Yamato has his doubts.

    Six years later, Yamato still can't stop wondering about the incidents, and resolves to take action...

    So yeah, maybe some of you have read RRR!, a decent manga made by Watanabe Jun as well. RRR's quality was kinda ebbing halfway through the series, although I can't deny to some extent it's entertaining. This manga also has pretty interesting start, but so far the scanlated part is still showing us the blurry part of the entire plot, and more question arises rather than answered. The premise is pretty cool, so if you're looking for suspense manga, you might want to check this one out.

    Not sure, but I don't think this manga would receive enough popularity to be adapted as an Anime.

    It will have a screen adaptation (映像化, whatever that means), it was announced in June. I assume it'll be live action.

    OK, mystery solved. They announced in the latest Young Magazine that Montage will be made into a TV drama for TV Fuji. Can't wait.

    Oh wow, I'm surprised. Is this manga really that popular? I'm looking forward for next chapter if this manga is proven to be that good.

    Live action TV series, in other words. Japanese TV series are often called jdrama, jdorama or just dorama (from the word "drama").
