I actually want to discuss this. I find the ending of this show particularly stupid. Tenma has cero development and ends up doing the same thing he did at the start. The resolution of that standoff near the end where they basically force him to abandon his moralfaggotry to save an innocent child is complete bullshit.
Come on, the fucking father shoots him? seriously? You just removed the whole point of the scene and fabricated plot points out of your ass to sustain an already dumb ideal.
Not every live is the same. Saving a serial killer(that has enough influence to slaughter towns with his minions) IS NOT THE SAME as saving a child.
And then there is the whole finale where everyone gets a happy ending, and the only two characters that get any development are Eva and Lunge.
Oh, and johann lives. And he escapes. And now he is going to kill more people, so Tenma will get angsty.
So we are back to the beggining, with no progress whatsoever.
Why do people think this is a masterpiece again?

I explained in that thread that the ending was 2deep4u.

Did you want me to explain it or do you want to watch Monster again?
>>
>>102201406
No, I just wanted to discuss the show, really.

It's not like I hated it, I actually really liked it for the most part.
>>
>>102201446
Do you want to discuss it?

I happen to be a good source on Monster since I've watched the entire thing four times.

Is there anything you don't understand, namely the ending?
>>
>>102201617
Please do. What was the point of the ending?
>>
>>102201760
The point of the ending was to put doubt on Tenma.
Basically, to understand the ending, you have to understand Johan and his pattern of thinking, which is everywhere in the show.

Basically, Johan is lying his ass off at every possible opportunity and no one is calling it.

You see, Johan is playing the biggest game of dare.
He's essentially playing that rooftop edge game he showed the kids but with the rest of the world.
He wants someone to pull the trigger and actually kill him.
Because its more interesting that way.
Johan has seen the roots of humanity in all its problems at a very early age. He's simply bored but he wants to see the world in a greater light.
So what he does is something impossible, he becomes the literal mechanism of getting people to find out who he is and try and kill him.
Johan's goal is simply to walk the path of life,facing death as closely as possible while doing as little as possible.

The thing with Johan is that no one can tell his lie.
That he has no motive.
He has no desire, no goal. He kills, fucks with people's life all so that they can try and kill him. All while he does his best at doing as little as possible by fucking as much as possible without anyone noticing.
His motive is even worse since his goal in life is to get people to seek him out.
He was only interested in his mother's death as an excuse to get more people to kill him.
He doesn't care about his sister, he doesn't care about his past either. He purposefully fucks her normal life, all to get her to corner him and he simply gets out of it with so little ease which would have made her kill herself.
Any excuse he gives is just bullshit for people to try and understand him.
He gives bullshit left and right just to make things interesting (help me, the monster inside me is growing)
>>
>>102202071
Johan is basically fighting against fate itself, forcing people to try and find him and corner him with him basically escaping impossible scenarios while doing as little as possible.

The finale at that village was him fucking every single character that knows him into a single spot, avenging his current goal that he doesn't care about and actually seeing if he could get out of forcing Tenma to kill him without doing anything.
And he actually gets out of it alive. He fucking defeats fate and keeps on going.

So at the end, he tells Tenma that he was never actually evil, it was the ''evilness'' he saw from his mother that turned him evil.

It's another one of his fucking lies. He's putting doubt on Tenma who had a clear conscience about Johan being a monster.

And that little resemblance of doubt is all Johan needed.
So at the end, he's off to kill more people again and start the entire process.

Another interesting point is that we're always shown the big thing that made Johan evil turn out to be something else.

Frist we're shown that 511 is what turned him evil but he was the one that turned the entire place to hell.
Then we're shown whatever happened in the Rosa Mansion is what probably turned him evil, but then we're shown that it was Anna that was there, not Johan.
It's simple to assume that Johan was never turned evil, he was simply evil and is lying his fucking ass about his motives and origins the more you find out about him.

Also, whenever Johan is talking to a kid, he's actually talking to himself.
That whole discussion Johan has with a kid about Nihilism and not having a place in the world, Johan is basically referencing and talking to himself.
>>
>>102202071
that doesnt explain the question he asked you
>>
>>102202358
I appreciate it very much. This is coherent in respects to Johann but,
>So at the end, he's off to kill more people again and start the entire process.
so the whole show was an exercise of futily then? we go back to the status quo without any changes? doesnt it feel kinda cheap to have a 74 episodes long series to then end without a conclusion?
>>
>>102202590
Pretty much.

If you want a less status quo ending, I have an alternative explanation.

Johan confessed to Tenma his origins and by that extend ''liberated himself''.
The monster that never existed vanished.

I prefer my former explanation because it's more gruesome to know that Johan is out there, quietly getting people and serial killers to kill themselves just for the sake of it.
