Your utter foolishness has set the path to be but one. To fight and defeat me, Zegion. Struggle with all your might, and burn away the embers of your lives! Zegion「"幽幻王(ミストロード)", "Misuto Rōdo" Zegion」is one of the ninth group of subordinates to be named by Rimuru Tempest. He was originally an injured monster that looked like a Japanese rhinoceros beetle which he thought was cool so he took him in and sheltered him inside the Labyrinth. He was originally kept as the Guardian of the 80th Floor of the Labyrinth because Rimuru thought nobody would be able to reach the place, but when he saw how ridiculously powerful he had become, he was appointed as the Guardian Overseer of the Ten Lords of the Labyrinth, and also later received the Title of a "Lord" as one of Rimuru's Twelve Patrons. He is also one of the three strongest subordinates of Rimuru Tempest, along with Benimaru and Diablo, as well as one of the subordinates to receive ability upgrades from Veldora Tempest as a sample, alongside Ranga. He is extremely loyal to Rimuru. This reflected when the group of soldiers accidentally mistook him for Rimuru, Zegion became enraged because this seemed like an insult to his Demon Lord. He has a strong lust for battle, which is part of his natural instincts.
He is a calm, silent man, and never really talks much. He worships Rimuru as a god. When he was a weak and rare insect, he was saved by Rimuru who covered his wounds with part of his own flesh (slime). Rimuru then placed him into the deeper floors of the Labyrinths to avoid the adventurers. However, he quickly became stronger and currently, he's the strongest monster in the Labyrinth and one of the strongest monsters in Tempest. He has always been very talented at handling Energy and was able to immediately gain control of his new power when he evolved into a True Demon Lord. As one of the bosses in the Labyrinth, he effortlessly defeated 3 of the Emperor's Personal Guards along with three other powerful soldiers. After Rimuru evolved into a Great Demon Lord, Zegions seems to be getting his skill upgrades from Veldora through Rimuru's soul corridor. Rimuru: Being his master and savior, Zegion has put his complete faith and loyalty for only 1 objective, demonstrates what he is good for. He worships Rimuru and is eternally grateful for his saving Apito and himself. Apito: She was saved at the same time with himself, Rimuru had healed them by using a part of his own physical flesh. Being the only ones to share the flesh of their master, Apito can be thought to be a Zegion's sister. Kumāra: Companion of the dungeon, and one of the strongest guardians on Ramiris's dungeon. Beretta: His superior on the labyrinth, seemly having a good relationship as demonstrated when they perfectly made a plan to protect Ramiris from Dino.
He received combat training from Veldora and has become very good at hand-to-hand combat.
Demon steel was assimilated into his exoskeleton and transformed into a living bio-steel called Adamantine. Its hardness surpasses that of diamonds while retaining the flexibility of living flesh. It is his natural suit of armor. When he evolved into a True Demon Lord he morphed his outer shell into God Steel through sheer willpower. It now rivals the God class armor. During the battle against Zero, Dino gave him his God class great sword, "Crumbling Fang," which thereafter acknowledged him as its master and fused with him, turning into "Crumbling Wings." a pair of blade-like wings. He received combat training from Veldora and has become very good at hand-to-hand combat. He has gained very high physical strength and extreme speed. He is able to punch through legendary grade armor. Sensing: He can sense an individual's abilities from very far away and is able to observe several hundred thousand individuals simultaneously. Spatial Distortion Field: A very high-level defense that can block powerful attacks, it is on the same level of Chloe's absolute defense. Crumbling Wings: By generating directional high-frequency waves which cut everything that they came in contact with. Moreover, by combining it with Zegion's magic power, it was possible to change its property depending on the enemy's waveform. In addition to All Heaven Sight, Zegion had acquired the means to attack in all directions, it could be said that his blind spot had disappeared. Dimension Ray: Zegion can severe dimensions and disconnect space. The ripping apart of space will destroy anyone within its path.

It's almost Halloween, and what better way to spend October than watching psychological thrillers? If you're looking for an anime filled with suspense, amazing storytelling, and dynamic characters, Naoki Urasawa's 2004 anime series Monster gives us all of these things and more. It focuses on the life of Dr. Tenma, a brilliant Japanese brain surgeon working at Eisler Memorial Hospital in West Germany, 1986. He's the hospital's rising star and engaged to the daughter of the hospital's director when he's suddenly faced with a moral dilemma that shakes his core, forcing him to make life -changing decisions. An innocent man dies because Dr. Tenma followed orders to treat a patient of higher social and political status. He is devastated and horrified as the widow confronts him, realizing what following these orders had entailed. This is a huge turning point in his life and the beginning of our story. This moment leads him to make a decision that alters his life in ways he couldn't even begin to imagine. The dilemma Dr. Tenma had to face is one that is brought up throughout the entire series: is every life equal? Obviously, the answer is "yes," and Dr. Tenma tries to convey this time and time again.
The plot of Monster is imaginative, with a well executed story.
Starting because of the innocent man dying because he wasn't deemed as a priority by the hospital, Tenma performs surgery on a boy with a gun shot wound despite receiving orders to treat the major first. When Dr. Tenma decides to help this boy, he's completely unaware that he's reviving a "monster" and the antagonist of this story. Almost immediately, Dr. Tenma is faced with tragedies and mystery at the hands of this ten-year-old boy. Most of Monster takes place 10-12 years after this point, following a string of murders occurring around Germany. It doesn't take long before Dr. Tenma is standing face to face with the murderer, who then reveals that he was the young boy Tenma brought back to life ten years prior: Johan Liebert. He shoots Dr. Tenma's patient right before his eyes and walks away like a true psychopath: cool, calm, and menacingly slow. Thus begins Dr. Tenma's journey to take Johan down, pulling him out of the shadows and into broad daylight to prevent any more murders from happening. This proves to be no easy task, though, and Dr. Tenma soon discovers there is far more than meets the eye in his journey of rectitude. The plot of Monster is imaginative, with a well executed story. The mysteries, plot, and characters are all woven together so seamlessly, and everything made perfect sense as the story progressed, while also managing to surprise at every turn. The plot is beyond compelling and riddled with depth and intrigue.
Urasawa did a great job making the characters three-dimensional and real. These characters weren't good or bad, or cookie-cutter images of other characters. They were each their own person and brought something unique to the story. They made us reflect, they made us cry, and they made us feel. Every episode brings something new and enthralling. The characters are carefully developed along the way-heroes, villains, and everyone in between. There are a lot of different types of villains in Monster (with the big bad boss being Johan Liebert), which is a big part of what makes this series so great. There's not just one bad guy and a bunch of lackeys, but multiple villains of all calibers, with various levels of evil versus humanity, none of which are the same. Even Johan's followers have their own individuality as villains. Each one brings something different to the table, and we tend to hate each of these villains (or love to hate them) for different reasons.
This man is so easy to hate, which makes him a good villain in its own way.
First and foremost, there's Johan. If you like incredibly eerie, disturbing villains-the calm and collected ones that are secretly serial killers-you've come to the right place. Johan's the main antagonist of this story and Dr. Tenma's worst nightmare come to life. He constantly taunts the doctor and murders anyone in his way-sometimes for no reason at all other than he simply can. As the show progresses, secrets are revealed and more tragedies occur. We realize just how bad Johan really is and how much he seems to hustle as a villain (seriously, where does he find the time)? He is easily one of the creepiest villains in all of anime. Everything he does is meticulous, and he can't interact with anyone without ruining their lives or convincing them they're useless and unworthy of love, or even life itself. He's calculated, intelligent, and has no remorse; he knows exactly what he wants to do and will accomplish it at all costs. He isn't predictable either, which gives the story all the twists and turns it needs to be made even more interesting. While Johan is the calm, creepy evil mastermind, there are others walking adjacent paths, such as the recurring villain Roberto. This man is so easy to hate, which makes him a good villain in its own way. In contrast to Johan's insidiousness, Roberto's more of a brute force/macho man villain that you know can beat the life out of you without breaking a sweat. While Johan uses mind games to win his wars, Roberto uses his inhuman strength and size to barrel through obstacles and demolish his enemies.
He's seditious and lacks no remorse for his actions, much like Johan. However, he still bows down to Johan and does what he's ordered to. He also thinks of his own self-indulging antics as well, as seen through his multiple affairs and his toying with people. Part of what makes Johan more evil than Roberto is that Johan seems detached from being human altogether and doesn't care about following anyone's plans or desires other than his own. There are many other villains in this series with their own twists on evil as well. Some prove to be more human than what first appears, making their stories even more interesting. This series shows us we're all human and that there are blurred lines between good and evil. We are then begged to ask the question, "can truly evil people become good in the end?" Questions like these are threaded into the entire show and addressed in ways that make us stop and think. Where there are mighty villains, there are mightier heroes. No one can watch Monster and not root for Dr.
He gives it to anyone who needs it, even if it gets him in trouble.
Tenma. He's the true MVP of the show. He starts out as an up-and-coming doctor paving his way into a bright future and then quickly ends up as an outlaw pursuing a phantom-type serial killer who some people, including Dr. Lunge at the BKA, refuse to believe is a real person. We find ourselves shouting "JOHAN IS NOT IN TENMA'S HEAD!" and rooting breathlessly for the doctor as he runs from the law and those wishing to cause him harm or kill him altogether. It's hard to not be on edge as the doctor pursues Johan and debates whether or not he should take away the life he gave to Liebert a decade prior. Something ending about Dr. Tenma is that no matter how much trouble he's in, he always stops to help someone in need, even if it's someone who actively fights against him. This is one of the ways he shows that he truly does believe all lives are equal. He doesn't pick and choose who he will save or give any type of medical attention to. He gives it to anyone who needs it, even if it gets him in trouble. Parallel to Dr. Tenma on the quest to take down Johan is Johan's twin sister, Nina Fortner (aka She and Johan grew up together until shortly after they were sent to the hospital the night Dr. Tenma treated Johan for his gunshot wound. After that, Anna became Nina and grew up in a nice home with adoptive parents who loved her, along with a memory problem blocking out any recollection of her childhood.
That is, until Johan shows up again when they turn twenty. Then Nina's life crumbles down around her, and the memories she suppressed start breaking through. Nina is a phenomenal character; she's strong, she's imagination, and she's one of the most relatable characters on the show. On top of all this, she and Tenma always have each other's backs, even if they aren't always in the same place. They follow their own paths toward Johan but often cross each other's on the way and always take care of one another. Having their individual journeys also allows them to grow in the ways they need to as characters, causing them to reflect on what they want and whether they should kill Johan or let him live. Nina has her own internal struggles as she strives to remember suppressed memories-memories that could help stop Johan and bring justice to those who suffered at the sins Johan so frivolously committed. She and Dr. Tenma also develop a strong bond, showing they truly care about one another, which adds to the emotional depths of the characters and of the anime as a whole.
