Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered
jyuufish
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.

Damn!

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.

ORDERING THE REST NAO!

Black Jack is sososo good ♥
He's such a cool character, and man, the stories!
They're of course bizarre and of course hard to believe, but they're just so cool! I kinda love the artwork for it, too.

You should watch the OVAs!

I think that I may JUST do that! I mean watch the OAVs, finished the volume and several of those stories just made me cry. (like the story about the woman that gets her babymaker taken out and becomes a man.. which yes is a bit far fetched but still)
