In the 1960s, a gifted young medical student tries to make a name for himself. Kuroo Hazama is a reserved young man with unusual black-and-white hair, a body covered with scars, and a dark past. Despite only being a medical student, his surgical brilliance starts to attract attention after he completes a seemingly impossible operation. Together with the spirited and honest intern Maiko Okamoto and Yabu, a close friend with a troubled life, Hazama devotes himself to the world of medicine.

However, his path to becoming a respectable surgeon is a difficult one as student riots, war, and corruption are consuming Japan. Hazama quickly finds himself caught up in a series of nefarious circumstances that challenge his integrity as a person and his path towards becoming a surgeon. Young Black Jack chronicles the story of a man capable of performing unthinkable feats of medicine, and the journey that leads him to become the legend known as Black Jack.

Also, one who has a what you one would call a "license" while the other saves people's life without a license. But, both seem to really care about their patients, as well as becoming the best they can be ...

Mixed Feelings
A prequel to the beloved series, Black Jack, this show was, in all honesty, trying to fit into the Black Jack universe. Let me explain why.

We all know who Hazama Kuroo is. He's a medical genius who can operate on anyone with 1000% success rate. But how did he become such? Well, you won't find it in this prequel because he's just a medical student in this series. But what I do like about the young Hazama is his dark background. Having performed surgeries in dangerous environments while still a student is quite a dilemma. It makes me look at him at a different perspective.
