Black Jack

Show Summary

Black Jack is based on the manga(comic) of the same title by the famous Osamu Tezuka, creater of Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion. This has NOTHING to do with the card game although the card play is a game of chance, like difficult medical operations, and whose outcome is unsure, like the endings of Black Jack stories. This also fits with the idea that Pinoko's name comes from Pinochle, another card game.

Dr. Black Jack is a surgeon who operates under the law and in the medium of life itself. He never believed in getting a license, he didn't want to have a piece of paper that shows "Look, I'm Surgeon".

He can save a life on the very brink of death. Nothing is too complicated for him. Though, it is at a valuable cost. Assisted with his adopted daughter, Pinoko, he saves lives of the rich for huge sums of money, and lives of the poor for free.
