Returning from a vacation at his own private island, Black Jack, the surgeon with the hands of God, is involved in an accident at sea. With three patients to be treated and only one doctor, he must decide who will be given priority.
Tezuka Productions is working with Yomiuri TV and Studio Pierrot to release classical anime on DVD, and Black Jack is one of their initial projects!! Fans can watch episodes of these great works for free on their site AnimeSols.com and then donate money for DVD boxsets to be produced and sold in North America.
To help Tezuka Productions with this endeavor we will be linking to episodes of Black Jack on the Vertical tumblr. We ask Tezuka and BJ fans to check out the series, and if you wish to eventually support this ambitious project please give what you can. Supporters will be rewarded with more than just anime, apparently exclusive goodies will be sent out if programs hit their marks.
Good luck, Tezuka Pro! And we hope all you readers will be setting up appointments with Black Jack soon!
