20th Century Boys – The movie

Naoki Urasawa, the author of Pluto and Monster latest manga hit is 20th Century Boys. I liked a lot 20th Century Boys, it is very similar to Monster in structure but even longer. 20th Century Boys is so popular in Japan that they are making a trilogy of movies. The advertising campaign for the first movie started some weeks a go and it is pretty impressive, there are “signs” everywhere!

    It’s the symbol of friendship. Whoever shows this symbol is a true friend.

    Those signs give a weird ominous feeling.

    If this was done, say around the same year as the events in the manga, it would be even more ominous and awesome.
