The sequel of Black Jack series, the story focuses mainly on Black Jack's real identity & happenings beyond his mother's death. I really love the series because..... Well, just watch it! The story is superb!

I guess my professional bias shows when the medical aspect of the show that bothers me most is the fact that researchers kept seeing viruses under a light microscope, and that these viruses were the same size as--or larger than--red blood cells. Maybe the term that was translated as "virus" can be used for multiple micro-organisms, because the B.O.P. looks more like an ameoboid or other eukaryotic organism, but that is neither here nor there. It's Black Jack, for fuck's sake; while it is more accurate than most medical dramas out there, it's still anime.

Nit-picking aside, I'm a sucker for medical dramas, and I have read more

Story 7/10
The story follows Black Jack and his fellow assistant Pinoco trying to uncover what the Noir project is and why he was caught in a bomb accident that killed his mother.

Art 9/10
Same art style from the first Black Jack TV show. Nothing much to say here, except pretty much the same opinion. The art style is great, just to me, I felt like the noses were weirdly drawn and that the background didn't really match some of the frames/drawings.

Sound 10/10
Black Jack 21 has one opening and two endings: Destiny -Taiyou no Hana- by Hitomi Shimatani (opening); careless breath by EXILE, Silence whispers by TRF. read more

First things first. My "reviews" system is explained on a blog entry. Which can be found through my profile.

Thought I reviewed this season already, but apparently I didn't. Anyhow, I'll keep this short.

So instead of having episodic enjoyment, this time around we have a 1 very long "side-story". In another words one sub-plot that runs the whole series, whilst as well of course Black Jack cures people. But I found the sub-blot / focus quite boring. Wasn't as enjoyable as the episodic galore the 2004 series had.

Same as series, not much to comment. Good but nothing special or bad. Only complaint I would have, kid read more
