Behind the Scenes of "Black Jack" Anime
An article in the Daily Yomiuri Online goes behind the scenes of the Black Jack anime TV series currently airing in Japan. The series, about a brilliant but unlicensed surgeon, debuted in October 2004 and is now in its second season, while a live-action movie was released last week. The movie was directed by Macoto Tezuka, son of Black Jack creator and “godfather of manga” Osamu Tezuka. Macoto Tezuka also talks about his father’s motivations when the original manga was created and his philosophy on adapting manga for screen.
