Otaku Evolution Episode 191 - Black Jack OVA (Eps 7-8)

Black Jack is glorious bullshit. It's like watching the medical version of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure sometimes. You think you have a good grasp of the real life medical information being relayed, everything seems pretty grounded, if not always believable (just look at Pinoko), but then some wild nonsense like a talking thousands year old tree and a leaf boy are thrown at you and you're left wondering what Osamu Tezuka, or Osamu Dezaki, were smoking that lead them to these plot beats. This is why I watch two episodes at a time, to get a decent sampling of both the realistic and fanciful, and still have episodes left for later.

 

Otaku Evolution Episode 163 - Black Jack OVA (Episodes 5-6)

I have to be honest. I don't really care for this crop of Black Jack episodes.  There are too many unnecessary moving parts in them that prevented them from being good. At least the "Owl of San Merida" had an interesting premise with the disappearing bullet holes, but adding the drama of the civil war and the old man just felt too extra. The sixth episode was a big waste of time, with a giant middle finger as an ending. I miss drug cacti.

Otaku Evolution Episode 135 - Black Jack (OVA) 3-4

It's been a while since I've reviewed episodes from Osamu Dezaki's Black Jack OVA, and these two episodes see the sagacious sawbones in tow of an ill-fated Latin American rebel force and try to find a hidden threat in the body of a promising young actress. Our favorite stitched up surgeon, our enigmatic expert, our heroic healer faces off against the military-industrial complex, biological weapons, and a rival who's enthusiastic about euthanasia in two interesting, if not always brilliant, entries into his many adventures.
