    Amazing opening song!
    This anime is about Black Jack during his younger days. In his regular anime, Black Jack is an extremely talented doctor without a license that asks for expenses fees. Young Black Jack will have episodes where someone gets hurt or stuff that involves politics and it all comes down to Black Jack saving someone.

    I can't tell you how much better the Black Jack anime series is without Pinoko! She ...

  • Glad I found the show... great animation!
    It was really good! I was surprised, I just kind of stumbled into it... I'm going to try to watch some of the original now but I think it will be difficult because the animation in this one was so good. Give the first episode a try... everything about it is great!

  • 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.

    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!

    the little surgeon that could
    young black jack is one of my favorite anime's to come in the past year or two. It somehow takes a rather uninteresting idea for an anime and somehow makes it interesting. The fact that i actually enjoy watching him perform surgeries actually surprised me at first. I do not know how i feel about the "villian" that has been introduced, but i have thoroughly enjoyed first ten episodes. All around i ...

  • I really want to like it more but...
    DISCLAIMER: written after I viewed all episodes, and also it must be said that I have read the original manga and watched the 2004 anime adaptation.

    To be fair, if CR could do half-stars I'd honestly give this 2.5; but, since I have to choose one or the other...I hate doing this to one of my favorite classic characters, but in this case I'm gonna round down. Why? I suppose because Young ...
