Description
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 group of boys who try to save the world.

Great manga.
The plot and the art are amazing.
Naoki Urasawa is a plot genious lol.
Just sometimes the flash-backs are to big, and gets a little boring.
And not to many action to.

But its definitly a must-read

The plot is amazing, so it really draws you into the story, but the only problem I have is that there is alot of twists and turns and thus explanations, so those of you who don't have alot of patience or aren't in the mood to sit down and read through everything, try to stay away from this one. But if you're willing, definitely a good read.

suberb story line, creative twist and developement, quite addicted, once read hard to stop
-the only reason this is not 10 out of 10 is because sometime it could get too intense and you probably not going to read it twice.

This manga has a quality that many other mangas lack: a very good story. Same as in movies, if the story is good the movie will be great. However, the thing that makes 20th Century Boys so exceptional is not only its story, the artwork is incredible too. So, even if you dont like the genre, this one is a "must read" for every manga fan.
