    Young Black Jack - First Impressions!
    [ Minimal Spoilers ]

    This first impression / review will be from the point of view of somebody not familiar with the original manga / anime, so hope it isn't bad!

    Wow, who knew an anime focused on surgery could be this good?

    To start with, the character Kuroo Hazama is the oddball of all the students in this Hospital University, but nobody truly knows his little talents. A ...

    Wasn't supposed to be good
    This show, I had ZERO expectations for. The PV that came out last month (or was it August? I can't recall at this moment in time) showed some different animation and BJ looked VERY, VERY creepy in design much different then the design from the 2004 anime, in which he's a very sweet looking character even with his scars. While I still LOVE and adore the first series (which can also be viewed here ...

    A prequel that does the series justice!
    I'm a long time fan of Dr. Black Jack and this anime is to a great start I must say. Its beautiful, and it really knows how to create the right mood and pacing every step of the way. I'd suggest this to long time fans and newcomers alike, no prior knowledge of the series should be necessary.

    Amazing!! They should remake the original!
    I absolutely love the animation style and main character designs! The series was very heart wrenching and emotional. I was sitting on the edge of my chair the entire season! I really hope they remake the original Black Jack series with the same animation!

    Ehhh?! Kohai Kuro'o?
    I am undeniably biased, as Black Jack is my medical drama true love. So obviously I like this show. It's, like, shojo Black Jack. Which is, of course, perfect. For a hot second I thought he was going to have a transformation sequence when he scrubbed in for surgery. This review got four instead of five stars because this did not happen.

    brilliant start and keeps getting better
    This anime is good, I find it is good at keeping you interested (so far) and has a nice variety between episodes.

    I would recommend watching this anime, i hope it continues to have a nice amount of variation and it seems to have character development. The history it covers has been well placed to draw you further into the show (which is a good thing) and helps give you a nice character ...

    A great take on a classic
    This appears to be an interesting take on a classic series. I found myself really intrigued by the characters, as well as the general flow of the story.
    In particular, I found that they were able to place into pictures the intensity of the the operating room, as well as reflecting the general feel of the protagonist, Hazama.
    While this is only one episode in, I think its safe to say that I am ...

  • This is a pretty great prequel :D
    This is a great introduction to this surgeons early life; before he became the well renowned doctor I pretty much fell for from the OVA's and earlier works. I personally enjoyed it because I like medical drama's.

    animation is great, story is great, just enjoy the ride and if you like it yay! if you don't..oh well.

  • Decent addition to the series
    As an extremely critical long time fan of the original series, I find this to be a decent addition to the Black Jack series. References to the original series, and even some of Tezuka's other works are appreciated, I was very afraid this anime would turn out to be a super fanservice-y waste of time. Pleasantly surprised to find a serious and true-to-character imagining of Black Jack's time as a ...

  • BlackJack: Young or old, still good
    This was a recommendation since my friend loved Blackjack, I've seen some of the other and I really liked this one. It gave a nice story to what had happened to him and his life prior being where he is. I liked all the supporting characters that brought a good dynamic to the show.
