I just picked up three volumes of 20th Century Boys at the local store. This has to be one of the most interesting and engaging manga's I've ever read. The variation in time in the stories flows so well and everything connects fluently. Not to mention I'm a huge fan of these mystery/drama/sci-fi types. Has anyone else read it? What am I in for?
The story is a well-mixed cocktail of ESP, aliens, 60s music, and late Showa-era nostalgia. You're in for a magnificent tale that describes the passionate struggle of a group of men and women (and, at one point, a transvestite,) who lead the forces of justice against a colossal evil. It's a story about love and peace and rock and roll and, of course, saving the world.

Meanwhile, with Maoyuu's all-star cast and its being the adaptation of a popular work, it seems that it's going to be taking the crown this season.
