In the 1960s, a gifted young medical student tries to make a name for himself. Kuroo Hazama is a reserved young man with unusual black-and-white hair, a body covered with scars, and a dark past. Despite only being a medical student, his surgical brilliance starts to attract attention after he completes a seemingly impossible operation. Together with the spirited and honest intern Maiko Okamoto and Yabu, a close friend with a troubled life, Hazama devotes himself to the world of medicine. However, his path to becoming a respectable surgeon is a difficult one as student riots, war, and corruption are consuming Japan. Hazama quickly finds himself caught up in a series of nefarious circumstances that challenge his integrity as a person and his path towards becoming a surgeon. Young Black Jack chronicles the story of a man capable of performing unthinkable feats of medicine, and the journey that leads him to become the legend known as Black Jack.

Its a good start to a prequel for Black Jack. Some of the character designs in regards to their noses are questionable. Fun show though.


A bit weird, but fun. Can get surprisingly serious but has good themes, albeit presented in an unpolished manner. Has a certain charm.


Not the best quality, but it’s worth a shot. If you don’t like the first few episodes, don’t bother.


Watched this one before the original, oops. Very good premise.


I’m sure they could of done more but it was alright. Introduced my young ass to the Black Jack series and other old shows so that’s cool


A blast from the past getting an adaptation. Good mix of serious and funny exploring the origin of the black market genius doctor.


An interesting prequel to the black-jack series.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
