浦沢直樹「MONSTER」アメリカでドラマ化決定! 海外でも期待高まる、「むしろ海外向き」

「YAWARA!」や「20世紀少年」などで知られる浦沢直樹の漫画「MONSTER」が、アメリカでドラマ化がされることが明らかになった。

「MONSTER」は、天才的な技術を持つ日本人脳外科医のDr.テンマと少年時代にテンマの手術によって奇跡的に助けられた殺人鬼ヨハンとの間に繰り広げられるミステリー漫画で、1994年~2001年まで「ビッグコミックオリジナル」で連載され、2004年~2005年にかけてテレビアニメとしても放映されている。



米ドラマ化に際して、映画「ヘルボーイ」などで知られるギレルモ・デル・トロ監督が製作の中心となり、日本の刊行元である小学館もコンサルティング・プロデューサーとしても関わるという。

これに対して海外のネット上でも

「デルトロがHBOドラマ向けにプロデュースするのであれば、きっとうまくいくはずだ」
「これは快挙というしかないな」
「マジか! 絶対に観る!!」
「これまで読んだ漫画で一番のヤツだ! ヤッター!」

といった興奮の声が多数起こっており、原作人気の高さと、デル・トロとの相性の良さへの期待感が伝わってくる。
一方国内でも、ドラゴンボールの実写版など、これまでアニメの実写は不評に終わってきたことが多かったが、本作品に関しては

「むしろ海外向けなのかもしれない」
「HBOなら期待できるな」
「浦沢のは実写向きが多いからな」
「HBOのGame of thrones観てて、デルトロ監督の絵もバッチリ再現出来ると確信できたぜ」

など原作が海外での実写向きであることや、HBOドラマのクオリティーの高さなどを鑑み、成功を確信する声が多数寄せられている。

浦沢直樹「MONSTER」アメリカでドラマ化決定! 海外でも期待高まる、「むしろ海外向き」

Commuters step around a 3D art exhibit entitled "Escape the Rat Race" painted on the concourse of Victoria railway station in London to promote a pest control company, Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2012.

Known for his impressive 3D pavement art, Edgar Mueller created this gigantic chasm for the West India Quay Festival in London. Mueller derives some of his inspiration from the "Ice Age" films.

At first glance, street artist Julian Beever's sidewalk creations look like unfinished chalk drawings of oddly morphed animals or landscapes. But if you happen upon the one perfect angle, the image magically snaps into shape, showing you a giant charging snail or an aerial view of Times Square.

The process is called anamorphosis, which involves drawing a distorted image which gives the impression of a three-dimensional scene from a certain vantage point. According to NPR, the talented artist sets up a camera or a viewfinder in the specific spot he intends his viewers to stand and draws his killer whales and beachy snapshots from that perspective. So if a passerby views the work from that same perspective, the drawings jump to life in their three-dimensional glory. But if they stand from any other position, the chalk creation appears to be elongated fragments of an incomplete design.

Street artist Julian Beever also creates other mind-bending illustrations like this chalk reflection. Check out more of his illusions.

French street art duo TSF Crew create logic-defying works of art in the run-down areas of industrial France. Combining the cheeky thrills of a well-executed optical illusion with tst makes the perfect combination.

Commuter Katherine Ware relaxes on street artist Kurt Wenner's 3D work of art as he adds the finishing touches in Waterloo Station on October 17, 2007 in London, England. Wenner is famous for combining traditional street painting with classical training, illusion and performance to invent an art form of his own know as anamorphic, illusionistic or 3D painting.

Kurt Wenner, 3D chalk master, recently created a less perilous way to climb on the Grand Canyon with his massive optical illusion. Located at the South Rim of the park, the installation looks 3D from certain points of view thanks to 150 hours of hard work on Wenner's part. While it may not measure up to the real Grand Canyon experience, the photo ops may come out victorious.

British artists 3D Joe & Max created this stunning optical illusion in conjunction with Reebok CrossFit as part of the seventh annual Guinness World Records Day. The 1,160.4-square-meter painting, seen in London, broke the world record for the largest 3D street art.

Dutch artist Leon Keer is known for his impressive street art displays that play with perspective, but he also knows how to attract onlookers -- by choosing a recognizable theme. One of his most recent works seen in the Netherlands paid homage to Pac-Man, the 1980s arcade game.

Artist Qi Xinghua created this work of art entitled "Macao's One Impression" outside a local shopping center in Macao. Hidden within the 120 meter-long optical illusion are all of the city's historical and architectural landmarks.

A Flickr user photographed this impossible object on a building facade. The rectangle uses overlap and various perspective angles to create the illusion of the twisted shaped.

浦沢直樹「MONSTER」アメリカでドラマ化決定! 海外でも期待高まる、「むしろ海外向き」

ready to be asked, "Dude, where'd I put my beer?" a whole lot.

The party don't stop 'til you spill chicken wings all over your lap.

Aside from the cringe-worthy "Look! A six pack on my six pack!" jokes your drunk friend will undoubtedly make, just wait until she tries to tie her shoes.

If you're already this committed to drinking on the DL in public, we wouldn't be surprised if you end up thinking you're Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Junior" by the end of the night.

"DUDE YOUR BEER IS ABOUT TO SPI-- Oh, wait. It's cool."

Clever, but that remote would get lost faster than your beer. Also, encouraging people to lose track of their drinks might not be the best way to go.

A few beers later and your guests assume that you hired R2-D2 as your personal butler.

Does the night end with you trying to get this last sip of beer? Or does it BEGIN that way?

You know it's the end of the night when you start talking to your beer, but imagine what would happen if it talked back?

We'd like to see any beer actually make it into a drunk person's mouth with this product. Also, the makers ignored the obvious "Shotgun" pun opportunity. What a shame.

Not included: replacement iPod for when it falls into the ice water.

If you're already sitting on the ground, you've maybe had enough beer.

"DUDE YOU SPILLED BEER ON YOUR PHO-- Oh, wait. It's cool."

Have one too many and leaning over results in a waterfall of beer on your carpet. Sorry, mom!

"Have you seen my drugs? I mean my beer. I mean my bottle of beer. I mean my can of beer in a bottle of drugs."


All's well until your drunk friend tries to spin his "gun" around his finger.

You know a drunk person is just going to hold the can and have the gun part sticking out all night.

This might not confuse a drunk person, but the name "Shaft Cooler" will definitely make them giggle.
