If you have enough money, you can buy anything. So why wait for an organ you need to become available? Raised to be harvested for parts, Ray had already lost her eyes when renegade surgeon Black Jack rescued her. Now, ten years later, she has grown up to be a surgeon herself. And thanks to the unique artificial eyes she received as replacements, she has a reputation for performing incredible medical operations that no one else could even attempt. But unknown to any but a select few, her surgical endeavors are only part of a greater mission: to discover what happened to the other children she was raised with, and to find the men who stole the eyes she was born with and to bring them to justice.

STORY: Again, the story is fairly basic, following a doctor with X ray eyes who is capable of performing surgeries no one else can. You'll be wrapped up instantly as to how she aquired those powers. There's ...

story 6
when it actually focuses on the story this gets interesting but more then half the series it has medical stuff mix with scifi which really hurts the show it did not pull off that combination it gives some of worse hack scifi explanations i heard in a long time that could only really work in a thoughtless horror movie but this anime is more focus on drama so it just got me to lose interest and the show would of greatly improved if ...

While browsing through an anime mag I noticed a little article on the manga of Ray, and I found the synopsis interesting. When I discovered there was anime, I was also pleased, and (being unable to find manga) I watched it.

--Story: 3--
Sadly the anime resembles a boring soap opera with an anime twist. Though I did watch the entire series, I was not very impressed. No plot twist was unexpected, and none of the scenes/scenario's really stuck out as interesting, apart from one aspect: Ray's past. This was what drew me to the series in the first place, but unfortunately it doesn't play a very ...
