Black Jack is an "unregistered" doctor with a clouded, mysterious past. He works with his little assistant Pinoko (who has a massive crush on the doctor), dealing with medical cases not very well known, which can be strange, dangerous, or not known at all. But he is a genius, and can save almost any of his patients' life (as long as they have the money for it, that is), and is known to many around the world, especially to those of medicine and science. He's a man of science himself, and does not believe much until he has seen it, yet it is many times he is surprised by love and nature often overpowering the science he bases his life in.

This anime has to be by far one of the best I have seen ever.The story revolves around a scary looking
half masked,black caped looking doctor(he does resemble Dracula in a way!),by the name of Dr Black Jack.
The doctor holds the reputation for being the world's best surgeon,but only works for the 'rich'.Though
initially you get a feeling that this guy is pretty greedy,but in reality he is a very kind hearted man.

The anime boasts of a very independant storyline.Most episodes remain independant of each other,with each story
touching your heart in a very unusual way.The animation is really good and if you are wondering why the style
is read more

In short, this anime is excellent in the fact that it doesn;t revolve around guns and action, but it's not slow and dragging. The idea of a doctor saving lives is excellent, and the dramatic [and some times a little ridiculous] ways is more than entertaining. I've watched most of these episodes three and more times, and will probably continue to do so. The animation may seem a little too childish, but I assure you that the subject matter isn't really. And, it's generally accurate, so you may learn a little anatomy at the same time. I highly recommend this anime, both to first time read more

Black Jack is one of Mr. Tezuka's most famous works next to Astro boy of course. It portrays the medical world through the eyes unlicensed doctor, Black Jack, as he gets all sorts of unique and life changing tasks and surgeries he must perform to the best of his abilities.

Story: 7
The story follows Black Jack, a mysterious doctor that has sort of an unknown past as everyone only knows him because of his reputation. According to almost everyone in the show, this man is superb in his surgery abilities and is one of the best doctors in Japan. Each episode read more

I watched this show right after watching the OVAs and right away I can say that Black Jack TV was a lot less dark and more kid-friendly than the OVA, but it's still very entertaining. Some of the stories will touch your heart and others will actually make you laugh. I'm glad we got some episodes that revolved around Pinoco and what she and her friends do in their free time, since in the OVAs it seemed she was always stuck at home waiting for the doctor to return. This version of Black Jack was less serious and more comedic, but that does not mean I enjoyed read more
