Mikoto Saijou underwent a complicated heart surgery at birth and has been fascinated with pediatric surgery ever since. As a 10-year-old, he often visited the surgeon who operated on him, Dr. Mamoru Shindou. Shindou is quick to realize that Mikoto possesses amazing medical potential, particularly because of his spatial awareness and visualization. The two grow close, but Mikoto eventually moves to America, where he completes his education and residency.

Now, almost 10 years later, Mikoto returns to Japan and reunites with Dr. Shindou, eager to continue his journey to become the world's best pediatric surgeon.

well so far i read all of the chapters so far in the manga and it's still ongoing.....

the story is about a kid who had a heart condition when he was a newborn and a doctor saved him. later when he became older he became set on becoming a doctor to save other ppl.

its awsome because he does not treat his patients like objects or idiots trying to slowdown there talking and make the kids look stupid he treats the patients like eqauls.

Well, this manga almost has the same plot as Yakitate!! Japan, seeing as they both have the same Author.
But there are lots of authors with multiple stories, while each has its very own charm.
Saijou no Meii though is only different in the characters name and looks, while even the personality of the main character stays almost the same.
The subject changes of course, too.
So instead of being a baker, the main chara is now a skilled pediatrician.
So i say, if you REALLY liked the other you might want to try this out, but for me, one NAIVE, SUPER-TALENTED-AT-WHAT-YOU'RE-DOING, NICE boy is enough.
I don't recommend this to read more
