Monster: The taste of sugar
I love all of the tertiary characters in Monster. Urasawa's filler chapters are some of the most enjoyable parts of his books. Usually, it's because he peoples them with great one-shot characters. The eighteen year old girl providing medical treatment to her fellow Vietnamese illegal immigrants...the mercenary and the little girl...the country doctor with a troublesome patient...the British couple on a very sombre vacation...the ex-Nazi soldier, begging the place he loves for forgiveness...the psychologist performing a new experiment on children in an orphanage...they come and shine their own individual lights into the darkness, then fade away as the plot resumes.
I'd hate to inundate you with posts, so, I'll only share my favourite: Mr. Rosso.
