hi guys,

We’ve got Black Jack starting today at 6:30pm PDT from Tezuka Productions. YEAH!!! Black Jack was written by Tezuka Osamu in the 1970s. We are launching four, yes, FOUR ~ SPECIAL ~ episodes and will continue rolling out episodes 1-13 of the Black Jack series in the next 5 weeks. In addition, we have tons of giveaways from Tezuka Productions, VERTICAL, and Mushi Production so keep reading…




Black Jack is a medical mercenary who sells his services to the highest bidder in his black cape, eerie black-and-white hair, and distinct scar across his face. He cures patients indiscriminately, from political to yakuza leaders, whoever is willing to cough up the dough. This has given him a reputation of greed but in actuality, he gives much of his money to charity. Black Jack is superhuman, regularly performing spectacular and impossible feats of surgical virtuosity, such as operating in absolute darkness completely from memory, and transplanting body parts without any risk of rejection. Tezuka Osamu was a certified physician and drew his knowledge of medicine through his studies. wow, smart guy!

There is also a grand prize giveaway of Black Jack merchandise, courtesy of Tezuka Productions (see below) and a manga giveaway courtesy of VERTICAL. There will be 3 winners who will receive Volumes One, Two, Three, and Four of the Black Jack Manga. That means a total of FOUR winners! VERTICAL was also nice enough to let us read the EXCLUSIVE preview of WolfGirl for a limited time only (it will be available for the next 7 days) which is part of the unreleased Black Jack Volume 5 (Random House, Amazon). How cool is that? In order to enter the contest, all you have to do it watch episode 1 by Sunday, May 3rd and you’ll automatically receive a virtual item raffle ticket which will make you eligible to win one of these great prizes! ohhh, can i enter?



if you think that’s all ~ think again!!

Wonder Beat Scramble, one of the last productions overseen by Tezuka Osamu, is a classic sci-fi adventure that aired in 1986, inspired by "Fantastic Journey," and an earlier episode of Astro Boy. Mushi Production, the first production company founded by Tezuka Osamu, has partnered with Crunchyroll to bring all 26 episodes to you, the fans, for FREE! And not only that, we're giving you, the fans, the chance to be able to be part of bringing this classic anime to the world!

We're looking for a few talented translators that can help us create English subtitles for everyone to enjoy. But we also want to make sure that the translations are good quality, worthy of the original work, so we're gonna hold a little contest to select the most talented subber! We'll have prizes straight from the memorabilia collections of Mushi Production themselves, with something really special and unique as a reward for the translator selected to translate the complete series.

Click here for more details

those are some great prizes we're giving away! good luck and enjoy the shows!!!

I've been meaning to read up on Black Jack more, and now that it's here, I have no real reason to not watch it. ^^'

And, oh, I wish I knew Japanese already, so I could try subbing that second series. Looks to be a fun contest, anyways.
