Oh god,  To Terra was awesome.. my first foray into truly old school anime (well I lie, I watched a good 35 episodes of Oniisama E which is also old school) but I sat down with the first volume of Black Jack and I have to say one word.


I must own this entire series!  No really.

I love love love love love this series, and I love Black Jack, I like House yes, but I can see why Japan thinks of House as the japanese Black Jack,   But I'm just entranced by this book series, I love him.. the look of him, the fact that he has a handicap (a very major one too.. or at least a dashing scar). and I love that he does the surgeries that other people don't want leaked, and he charges like EXORBITANT prices for it. (90 million YEN.  I mean this is back in the seventies too.. so do the math)

I think I can justify ordering the series as it's a strong old school manga that's very compelling and while the artwork is dated, the story is very enjoyable and translates well to this modern time.
