    20th Century Boys
    Welcome to the discussion thread of Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys. We are doing 10 chapters per week starting from today (Friday to Friday). Will keep changing the banner as the story progresses. It has 249 chapters across 22 volumes. The official Japanese run was 1999 to 2004.
    Synopsis:
    As the 20th century approaches its end, people all over the world are anxious that the world is changing. And probably not for the better.
    Kenji Endo is a normal convenience store manager who's just trying to get by. But when he learns that one of his old friends going by the name "Donkey" has suddenly committed suicide, and that a new cult led by a figure known as "Friend" is becoming more notorious, Kenji starts to feel that something isn't right. With a few key clues left behind by his deceased friend, Kenji realizes that this cult is much more than he ever thought it would be—not only is this mysterious organization directly targeting him and his childhood friends, but the whole world also faces a grave danger that only the friends have the key to stop.
    Kenji's simple life of barely making ends meet is flipped upside down when he reunites with his childhood friends, and together they must figure out the truth of how their past is connected to the cult, as the turn of the century could mean the possible end of the world.

    finished chapter 1, it was pretty interesting, especially the part in '69 where they're all sitting in their 'secret base', gives off a very cozy old anime kind vibes. Also the guy was levitating wtf?

    yup especially since the panel shift to year 1997 after that.
    Most likely monster is not real just hallucinations or something becoz if it was dunno how will they defeat that lol

    yup especially their conversation that gives chill vibe of kids trying have fun in their own way

    Yeah I don't think this manga will suddenly have sci-fi monster shit

    yeah also the sign that kid draws and the same sign is later seen at that family's house must mean one of the kids end up being 'Friend'

    I mean, that was her insistence.

    Just gotta say that the final chapter and what it revealed, reminded me of Jack-in-the-Box

    Yeah, it's kind of strange too how none of the group seems to remember anything from their secret club days other than in spurts.
