    I keep hearing about its awesomeness, but I just have no time to check it out.
    Has it been animated yet?

    not yet but hoefully soon, one of the authors earlier works "monster" is animated, so hopefully a studio will pick this one up too . But seriously, its probabily the greatest manga ive read in my whole life, the stroy is simply suprb, the mangaka is an amazing writer, the art work might look average but the story makes reading it more thna worth while

    That's ok man, thanks anyway. The funny thing is that my korean roomate can download anything he wants using the same internet connection as me, and fast, Damn that guy. I have to ask him how he does it. Let me beat the shit out of him so that he can give me the information that i want. If he tells me, then i will tell you. How about it?


    By the way, is the storyline better than death Note? Because that is one kick ass manga that doesn't have any action at all, just the addcitive storyline which first class. If by any chance you haven't read Death Note, i urge you to do it immediately because you are missing a great master piece in my opinion.

    oh i adore Death note, but 20th century boys is in a completely different level, plus i honestly can compare them, 20CB is already in its 17 volume, while DN just began

    Better than Death Note? I can't wait until i get home and start downloading that series.

    Also, one more question.

    When i went to the site, i clicked on the manga but it only appeared the translation without images, just the text. Is it something that i'm doing wrong, or is it located in another area. Sorry for asking so many questions.

    yeah really is kenjii still alive and who is friend...no wait dont spoil anything ive got to see it with my own eyes.
    there is always suspense in some way and i cant stop reading it in fact its my fav. manga now (sec. Naruto,third Death Note) is it still running ? I dont know why but when i look at the images it looks for me like some "old style" pictures.

    lol, i've had 20th century boys on my computer for 3 months. I read the first chapter and wasn't impressed by the art (I was reading Gantz concurrently and there is a huge difference between them) so I stopped. But I think i'm gonna start reading it again.

    ....that made me seem stupid... but I love it that much. It used to be slightly boring, but then the plot exploded in my face.

    Glad to see there are other fans that appreciate the wonderful work of this mangaka. Its sad how some people will judge the work just based on the artwork, but trust me, once you started reading it more and more you will learn to appreciate the wonderful drawing, since the mangaka is able to capture all the emotions of the characters.

    This manga can put all most all of any other manga to shame, the story is beautifully written, and with so my twist in events that will keep you guessing.

    I love this manga, just too bad that people arent giving it as much of a chance like Naruto, Bleach or One Piece...

    This is one awsome manga.
    I read all volumes last night (dled them a few weeks ago but been busy with exams).
    Definately on a whole nother level. Everything planned from the beginning (you can tell), it's just awsome.
