    Can Urasawa keep one-upping himself? I think he can, and he continues to do so by grabbing my attention volume to volume of this amazing series. This volume focused heavily on Kenji's present and his difficulties in understanding what is happening, after the revelation in the last chapter of Volume 2, Kenji mind starts spinning. Why is this happening? What did that guy mean 'This was all your plan'? Why did Donkey want to talk to him? Why was Donkey killed? Who is 'Friend' really? As Kenji rushe Can Urasawa keep one-upping himself? I think he can, and he continues to do so by grabbing my attention volume to volume of this amazing series. This volume focused heavily on Kenji's present and his difficulties in understanding what is happening, after the revelation in the last chapter of Volume 2, Kenji mind starts spinning. Why is this happening? What did that guy mean 'This was all your plan'? Why did Donkey want to talk to him? Why was Donkey killed? Who is 'Friend' really? As Kenji rushes home to sort things out he desperately tries to think of a reason, any other reason, that this string of craziness could be happening, but using logic just makes him more paranoid. The bottom line is this though: whatever they cooked up in their secret hideout as kids playing games, is coming to life FOR REAL! As the plot thickens things start getting a little creepy, in a good mysterious sort of way. I mean weren't some of the games you played as a kid stupid and immature? What if someone played them as an adult and took them seriously? What if cops and robbers became real to someone? Cowboys and Indians? RISK?!? A lot begins to come to light, his sisters history, a little of who 'Friend' is, that his sisters baby Kanna is somehow linked to 'Friend,' etc. Sometimes there is flashbacks in this volume but they are short and it comes right back to Kenji in the present day and his running all over town trying to get to the bottom of things and save who he loves because it has been prophesied by some crazy homeless guy nicknamed "God" that he will "save the world." 20th Century Boys can really be considered the opposite of the normal 'ordinary kid gets super powers' storyline. Kenji doesn't have any super powers, he's about as ordinary as you can get, but because of who he is, and what he did as a kid, he can make a difference. It is a powerful story that has engulfed me. Urasawa = A great writer/artist.

    3 volumes in and it's safe to say that this series has its hooks in me. I think the greatest selling point, for me, is the characters. The use of the flashback scenes where they are youngsters combined with the storytelling of their older selves really helps add a layer of depth to their personalities. Add the fact that Naoki Urasawa's art for the younger/older versions of these characters is really spot on - I never struggle to try and figure out who is who even though there are 30 years or so 3 volumes in and it's safe to say that this series has its hooks in me.

I'm really enjoying the story too. At times things feel a bit like a slice of life and then all of a sudden there are crazy cult members burning down grocery stores - airports blowing up - and chemical warfare scaring the shit out of everyone. It's all just so bizarre and entertaining that I often find myself grinning from ear to ear as I turn the pages. I just can't help wanting to read more and more and more. Which is good, I suppose, cuz there are still a shit ton of volumes to get through before this series is over. Onto the next one... *side note* I love that when the shit hits the fan the best thing to do is to turn on your electric guitar and rock the fuck out. *side note the 2nd* I also love the fact that God in this series is a homeless man that can not only see the future - but also shares wisdom through the use of bowling anecdotes.

    A feature of Urasawa's writing, at least from what I've seen with ongoing series, is introducing new characters at strategic moments. For example, in this third volume of 20th Century boys, we see Shogun...but he doesn't appear until the last chapter, and without much information or context. On top of that, the additional twist with Kanna is also compelling. Onward!

    I still really like this series, and this volume has some of the best moments in the series (and some of the worst). The confrontation with the killer was great, but then it turned out silly with the twist of the gun. Same thing with the reveal of who it is, but then let's play a guitar all night for the power of rock is strong! We did get a great burning down a store scene with zombie like people's, that was intense and scary. But we got a silly dog sniffing scene that made no sense.

    Out of the three volumes I have read in this series, this one is my favorite. I read this in one sitting. I was not able to put it down. There were a couple little surprise factors that really drew me further into the story. Not being a huge manga fan or I should say not having read many, this series is really taking a hold of me. I was hooked with Volume 1 and really enjoyed the storyline line development in Volume 2. I have more volumes awaiting me to be read. I only hope the series continues Out of the three volumes I have read in this series, this one is my favorite. I read this in one sitting. I was not able to put it down.

I was hooked with Volume 1 and really enjoyed the storyline line development in Volume 2. I have more volumes awaiting me to be read. I only hope the series continues to get better and better like it has done so far. The plot is starting to thicken and some very interesting events are starting to unravel. Based on what Kenji discovers I can only guess at what is to happen next. As mentioned by the other reviewer on Amazon, I think what I like best about Kenji is that he is just a normal person. He has so super powers(at least not that I know of). He is one that we can relate to while we read about his adventures. Time to track down the other volumes in this series. I need more!!!!

    7.5/10 This stuff is seriously addictive. I cannot stop reading. Usually I like to read slowly, so to enjoy the art and so on. (Even because I am not much of a 'rereads' guy.) But with this story it is hard not to rush turning page after page voraciously. This volume does not get 8/10 from me only because a certain plot choice that I saw coming and that I did not want to come came. But when in the last chapter I realised who the man of Bangkok was, I jumped! Way to close a tankobon! 7.5/10 This stuff is seriously addictive. I cannot stop reading.

    I must have read to at least this point before because the story beats were familiar. I didn't realize on my first read that Urasawa opens the series in media res, so the reader already knows the end, or at least some point in the far future. Figuring out where and how the parts of this story fit together makes it all the more engaging. I must have read to at least this point before because the story beats were familiar.

    Confusion .. I really want to know why there's this mark in the Shonen Sunday magazine in Bangkok. I hope we can see more of Thailand in this manga. And about the story, the manga has a good pacing, interesting characters, a well thought of plot and just very sophisticated writing. Great volume. I think every volume will be great. Also did I mention that Kanna looks just like my sister as a baby? Confusion .. I really want to know why there's this mark in the Shonen Sunday magazine in Bangkok.

    This has been my favorite volume of 20th century boys so far and it was amazing. Kenji is such a human character and in this volume I couldn't help but relate to him in a lot of ways. The way Kenji interacts with friend was so creepy and the whole premise of everything from there childhood coming true was amazing and fully formed in this volume. I am intrigued by the mystery and I cannot wait to read and review volume 4. This has been my favorite volume of 20th century boys so far and it was amazing.

    Kenji is baffled as to why the dying homeless man proclaimed him to be the one who has to save the world? Who is he but a lowly shop owner, and what can he do to save anyone when he’s clearly made a mess of his own life? Things are starting to come back to him, though, as Kenji begins to connect the dots, as he realizes that what is happening mirrors the story he wrote so long ago, as a child. A tale told among friends about super heroes saving the world from a deadly menace. How can it be coming Kenji is baffled as to why the dying homeless man proclaimed him to be the one who has to save the world? Who is he but a lowly shop owner, and what can he do to save anyone when he’s clearly made a mess of his own life? Things are starting to come back to him, though, as Kenji begins to connect the dots, as he realizes that what is happening mirrors the story he wrote so long ago, as a child. A tale told among friends about super heroes saving the world from a deadly menace. How can it be coming true now? And why? Kenji tries to talk to each of his friends, but after they unload their tales of woe on him, he doesn’t have the heart to involve them in what is going on. In pursuing Donkey’s student, whom he is unable to find, he learns about a concert being given by The Friends, and his blood runs cold. He knows he has to be there, so tells his mother to watch Kanna and heads to the concert. There he ends up on stage and comes face to face with Friend. Well, relatively speaking, as Friend is hiding behind a mask. But his words are clear and strike distinct fear in Kenji. Kenji almost forgets about his class reunion. Maybe he’ll recognize Friend among the attendees. Or at least gain some clues as to which kid wore a mask. But he doesn’t recognize a lot of his former classmates after so many years. Yukiji doesn’t make the reunion because she has to work at the airport. But someone else shows up who recognizes Kenji, and as they catch up, Kenji remembers things he’d forgotten, such as who the kid in the mask was, and what the next target in the story was. But can he stop the next disaster from taking place? He has a sudden premonition that his niece Kanna is in trouble, and races to save her, but from what… or who… Things are really happening in this volume of Twentieth Century Boys! When I read what Kenji learned at the Friend concert, I literally gasped! Imagine how he must feel, wondering if he is crazy or is there someone out there following the plot of a story written when Kenji was just a child? But if he’s right, and that’s what happening, then the fate of the world could very well be at stake. This volume is action packed and exciting. I love the artwork a lot, as well as the story. Kenji is not your typical hero, in that he is an ordinary man with an ordinary job and an ordinary life, who thinks he’s accomplished nothing of note in that life. He fails to realize how special he really is, what a good man he is, but I have the feeling a lot of people will know about him before this tale is through. Seeing Friend for the first time, albeit behind a mask, was very interesting, his surprise announcement even more so. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

Synopsis: Humanity, having faced extinction at the end of the 20th century, would not have entered the new millennium if it weren't for them. In 1969, during their youth, they created a symbol. In 1997, as the coming disaster slowly starts to unfold, that symbol returns. This is the story of a gang of boys who try to save the world. Failed rock musician Kenji's memories of his past come rushing back when one of his childhood friends mysteriously commits suicide. Could this new death be related to the rise of a bizarre new cult that's been implicated in several other murders and disappearances? Determined to dig deeper, Kenji reunites with some of his old buddies in the hope of learning the truth behind it all. Review: This is basically the manga equivalent of a Stephen King novel, channeling themes and plot devices from the likes of It, Dreamcatcher, The Running Man and quite a few others. A young group of friends that make an innocent promise which ends up creating the most dangerous cult in the world, a 'friend' turned into the world's greatest evil, a strange suicide that reunites a group of adults to solve a mystery from their childhood which ended up leading to an apocalyptic police state, clever use of cultural references, rock songs and historical allegories to tell the full story, extremely small actions resulting in extremely massive consequences, an eerie threat lurking in the shadows that may or may not be of supernatural origins, kids overthrowing a totalitarian regime and rebelling against society while fighting against a sinister threat that no one else knows about; sound King enough for ya? Though I don't think it's quite as good as Monster by the same author, it's definitely very close. It's a masterpiece of intricate plotting, interweaving narratives, deep character development and psychological complexity. The villain's presence is suffocating from the very beginning while remaining mysterious and terrifying until the final chapter. It's intense, it's relatable, it's horrifying and it's an emotional rollercoaster. Be careful who you call your friend and be careful of the promises you make. You might just end up causing the end of the world.

The cult is moving on with even more disastrous plans and the identity of the 'Friend', the leader of the cult remains a mystery.

A recurring theme in this manga is Kenji not being able to remember key people and key incidents from his early years, to which there are many flashbacks. As he gradually remembers the game he and the others played as kids, he's more able to stop the Friend's plans

    In this, the 3rd edition of 20th Century Boys, the story develops but it does not seem as exciting as others. It did read smoothly and held my interest though. In this, the main character comes to see his mission a little clearer. He also begins to touch base with all his childhood friends again. I'm looking forward to Volume 4.

    20th Century Boys Volume #03 Naoki Urasawa So we know now who is FRIEND; The Book of prophecy is in hand; Are we going to save the world? Another good volume; but I think less interesting than the previous two, the story is moving forward though, we kind of know the who I want to know the How, the Why? Urasawa writing style is amazing!

    It’s like each volume gets better than the previous one. This time the story happens in 2014, where we follow Kanna (Kenji’s niece) and Chono (Cho-san’s grandson). This title references a lot of things that happened in the previous too books, so it’s good to have them fresh in your mind. This one was quite a thrill to read!

    I like how the plot progresses so far. In this particular volume, we got to see the extend of obsession of the Friend's followers and slowly, we're getting to know the backstory of the cult's founder. By this point, it's a no mystery anymore of who he is. Or so to me. I like how the plot progresses so far.

    Things ramp up. Kenji confronts the Friend, but it doesn't go well. So instead he tries to stop the Friends cult's activities, but that doesn't go well either. Still great art. More reliance on cutting away from scenes as a way to build drama, which is a techique I don't like. Things ramp up. Kenji confronts the Friend, but it doesn't go well.

    Another thrilling volume. It gripped me early on with hints and nods towards a bigger plot then even I imagined. Fantastic plot and mystery with truly epic art and action.

    It gets better with each volume and the way it works not only with nostalgia, but also how we change with time, losing our idealism with adulthood is something that has struck a chord with me.
