Yuko just read the news that Urasawa Noaki’s terrific manga thriller MONSTER is going to be made into an animated TV series this April. Urawasa will be working on the adaptation, and it will be written for the screen by the guy who wrote Hayao Miyazaki’s SEN TO CHIHIRO NO KAMIKAKUSHI (SPIRITED AWAY). The budget for the series is huge, and the animation will be done by Mad House (production company that did METROPOLIS). This is going to be good.
