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

I fell in love with the Black Jack series from it's original 'animation film' the mature-version. So Black Jack-21 is a delightful sequel to the serious medical drama that I adored so much. For older viewers like me, as a personal perference;

Black Jack TV series kinda makes too 'lightly' and rather than focusing on the fragile but painstaking surgeries, they were focused more on character back stories. Since it wasn't written by Tezuka, I assume this was just the writer's interpretation. Not that it's a bad spin-off, but to my relief; Black Jack 21 returned with a deeper emphasis on the wise and misunderstood read more
