Quotes

Black Jack: Even though I was too late to save this case, I learned a valuable lesson: no matter how well one wields a person's scalpel, it can't cut away a person's soul. And if such a scalpel existed, I would be the first in line to place several orders for them.

At last! Something original!
15 June 2002 | by (Northern Ireland, UK) – See all my reviews

I don't know about most anime fans but I'm sick and tired of 98% of the genre being set in space or in a post-apocalyptic future. It gets boring after the 20th one. So I was extremely pleased to turn over to the Sci-Fi channel for my weekly dose of anime and find Black Jack waiting! The story starts at the Olympics with every single record being broke then mysteriously each athlete starts to develop different, but deadly, symptoms which get worse. These include severe anorexia and constant blood transfusions. Renegade surgeon Black Jack, a mysterious scarred loner who will perform any surgery for money is hired by a cold-hearted woman to solve the mystery but it soon develops into a severe situation when the patients start running out and secrets are let out... This is a great anime, it is so refreshing to see something different on the shelves. A medical thriller with an intriguing plot, maybe the Japanese have still got some fresh ideas after all?
