Tezuka's greatest work
1 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first watched the preview of this anime on my Macross 2 movie, I gotta say if it was good enough for me to get,and yes it was. But after buying it on DVD. I really say it's the best anime to see, and it was created by Osamu Tezuka, the godfather of anime.I know that this was one of his greatest masterpiece since Astro Boy and Kimba:the White Lion. I do like the animation in this film, and Kirk Thornton playing the voice of BlackJack. I really also think that some of the medical scenes may be too Bloody and scary for Younger viewers. What I also want to say about this movie, that in real life, we should never take any drugs that aren't safe and can kill. It's also important to check with our Doctor before taking a drug I would also want to dedicate this anime in memory of Osamu Tezuka. So in closing,if you ever buy or watch it. Be careful, it can mess with your head.
