Synopsis

Taichi Keaton is a man of many talents: father, historian, frequent traveler, negotiator, archaeologist, former survival instructor, and all while working as an insurance investigator for Lloyd's of London. While his methods may seem a bit unorthodox, he gets the job done when needed, but not without a little something to learn or teach in the process. Through all of his adventures, some people call him a quack. Those who know him well call him a master of life...

Recommendations

Both series are episodic mature dramas with a very cool main character who goes around solving other people's problems. Black Jack is a doctor, while Taichi Hiraga-Keaton is an insurance investigator (although he also is a "jack of all trades" being highly skilled as a negotiator, archaeologist, former survival instructor, historian, and traveler). Anyway both men are very unorthodox, and yet looked highly apon by others in their respected feilds (most of the time). Yet society as a whole does not respect either of them (Black Jack in particular as he is an unlicensed doctor). Both men have amazing abilities, they are almost super-human, yet still some-how relatable and understandable.

In both series there are almost no recurring characters, minus the main character and one or two side characters (that are not always in every episode). Both series are oddities in anime. Instead of being action packed, or filled with giant robots, or vampires, or riveting political intrigue, they instead go for something else entirely. Sadly since both series are episodic, they tend to follow a pattern (there's a problem, Black Jack/Keaton shows up, they investigate the problem and look at it from all angles, they fix problem, etc etc), but it doesn't harm either series too much.

Anyway these series are so alike it's scary. Even their artwork and animation look a little alike. If you like one of these, I bet you'd like the other one. Give em a try. Both are very refreshing!
