As I see it, most of the discussion of this awesome series is going on in the other thread: 21st Century Boys
That's normal for completed (older) series. Most discussions are about the current chapter happenings and scanning process of running series. And seinen in general is not discussed as much as the 'teenies' do over in the shounen section
I liked everything in manga except the way Fukubei died. He was much better "friend" than Katsumata in my opinion.
Well, i finished reading this manga a while ago (couple of months), but I've just found this thread XD
I've read your theories, and that really made enjoy 20CB even more.
The whole katsumata revelation in the last chapter of 21CB just blew my mind away, and the fact that every single little tiny chapter from every volume is connected, and even the first and the last chapters hide a huge true within them... it's just great.
Haha, who would think that Kenji was the one that saved Katsumata from death by playing 20th Century Boys...
This manga really talks about the "power of music", huh?
Anyways, I'm glad that I read this, and I'm trying to make all of my friends get to it to, haha
Katsumata was the kid that "died" before they could dissect the carp right? And by die I assume they're referring to when he got blamed for stealing the space badge and Fukubei said "You died today" when he was laying on the ground.
First time posting in this part of the forum, so I'll just say this:
Unless I've already seen the anime counterpart, like Bleach and Naruto, manga is pretty hard for me to get into. The only manga I've read completely (other than 20th/21st) is Death Note. That said....
I appreciate Urasawa's work not only for the amazing story -which got me hooked from the first chapter- but also for the outstanding artwork. It's really quite inspiring.
That is all.
First time poster. Mostly stumbled here because I was trying to search/remember if Katsumata's face was ever shown. Anyone?
I know who he is, just no face (aside from masks) throughout the whole thing?
I didn't start 21st CB for a while after 20th CB because well y'know stuff.
Been on and off this manga for a while. Damn good. I got to remember to reread it when I have more free time. Glad I finally picked it up again.
I read through 20th/21st century boys some weeks ago and it definitly lives up to the hype. What a monumental work
I know this thread is rather old but theres one page/event in the manga that seems to be realted to the question of how Katsumata looks.
At one point in the manga ( in the villa on the hill ) Fukubei stands in front of a mirror and sees his head as some sort of egg ( just like in the virtual realitiy when Katsumatas mask is taken off by Kenji ).
We also know that the 2nd friend looks just like Fukubei - most would assume surgery at this point.
Also its just a guess I think Katsumata is Fukubeis brother or somethin like that because of this here
he says hes not child A - if he really means it Manjoume must have mistaken two children for one and the same. If you look one the childs reaction one page further his "example project" sounds more like the 2nd friends idea of comletely destroy the planet
