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.

Product Description

About the Author

Naoki Urasawa's career as a manga artist spans more than twenty years and has firmly established him as one of the true manga masters of Japan. Born in Tokyo in 1960, Urasawa debuted with BETA! in 1983 and hasn't stopped his impressive output since. Well-versed in a variety of genres, Urasawa's oeuvre encompasses a multitude of different subjects, such as a romantic comedy (Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl), a suspenseful human drama about a former mercenary (Pineapple ARMY; story by Kazuya Kudo), a captivating psychological suspense story (Monster), a sci-fi adventure manga (20th Century Boys), and a modern reinterpretation of the work of the God of Manga, Osamu Tezuka (Pluto: Urasawa Tezuka; co-authored with Takashi Nagasaki, supervised by Macoto Tezka, and with the cooperation of Tezuka Productions). Many of his books have spawned popular animated and live-action TV programs and films, and 2008 saw the theatrical release of the first of three live-action Japanese films based on 20th Century Boys.No stranger to accolades and awards, Urasawa is a three-time recipient of the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award, a two-time recipient of the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize, and has received the Kodansha Manga Award. Similarly, Monster has been nominated three times for the Eisner Award in America. Urasawa has also become involved in the world of academia, and in 2008 accepted a guest teaching post at Nagoya Zokei University, where he teaches courses in, of course, manga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Illustration April 18 2014

I dont read these magna comics for the storyline - I LOVE the illustrations. The difference with this particular series is it has a combination of a great story line and great illustrator. Urasawa is amazing. I recommend the Pluto series for anyone looking at a shorter series with great graphics and awesome characters (Astroboy!).

20th century boys is a great collection if you love good Magna.
5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the virtual world! Another awesome volume of "20th Century Boys"! Nov. 1 2013
By Dennis A. Amith (kndy) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It seems that I tend to always say with each review that each volume of "20th Century Boys" gets better and better, but its the truth. Naoki Urasawa is a wonderful mangaka and along with his wonderful artwork, his stories are well-crafted and he knows how to entice the readers with suspense.

Volume 14 is primarily a Yoshitsune, Kyoko and Kanna as they enter the virtual world of 1971, to find out that the virtual world is modeled exactly as things were back then. In other words, it's more than just the virtual world, it's like they are going back in time.

But what makes this volume a bit different from the past volumes is the fact that it gets into more character development of Yoshitsune's character. We know that Yoshitsune was the shy boy of the group but what we don't know is that there was a time when all friends of Kenji ended up going their own different direction because their hideout was destroyed. The big reveal was who was responsible for the hideout being destroyed and of course, later in the chapters, what took place inside the laboratory when Donkey jumped off the school building after his encounter of whatever inside the lab.

In a way, this latest volume is slightly emotional was Yoshitsune realized that as a child, he was literally forgotten by his friends as they all went on to do things on their own. May it be work at their family's store or had different interest but for Yoshitsune, the hideout was the string that brought everyone together and just reliving the pain that he once had to go through, and then meeting with a young version of himself was touching.

Also, to see Kanna go back and meet people of that time period including a younger version of her Uncle Kenji and Donkey.

There are a few major questions that were answered in this book, mainly of what took place back in 1971. But also, setting things up for vol. 15 as everyone seems to have spotted someone mysterious. Who can it be?

Featuring wonderful illustration and awesome storytelling, which Naoki Ursawa is known for, "Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys Vol. 14″ is awesome!

Another volume that is highly recommended!
