No of Episodes : 61
Genre : Drama
Plot : Black Jack is an "unregistered" doctor with a clouded, mysterious past. He works with his little assistant Pinoko (who has a massive crush on the doctor), dealing with medical cases not very well known, which can be strange, dangerous, or not known at all. But he is a genius, and can save almost any of his patients' life (as long as they have the money for it, that is), and is known to many around the world, especially to those of medicine and science. He's a man of science himself, and does not believe much until he has seen it, yet it is many times he is surprised by love and nature often overpowering the science he bases his life in.

Our Review : In short, this anime is excellent in the fact that it doesn;t revolve around guns and action, but it's not slow and dragging. The idea of a doctor saving lives is excellent, and the dramatic [and some times a little ridiculous] ways is more than entertaining. I've watched most of these episodes three and more times, and will probably continue to do so. The animation may seem a little too childish, but I assure you that the subject matter isn't really. And, it's generally accurate, so you may learn a little anatomy at the same time. I highly recommend this anime, both to first time watchers and die hard anime fans.
