Young Black Jack Manga Gets TV Anime Series

Prequel series profiles Osamu Tezuka's iconic character when he was in med school

The 11th issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion magazine is announcing next Tuesday that Yū-Go Ōkuma and Yoshiaki Tabata's Young Black Jack manga is getting a television anime adaptation.

Illustrator Ōkuma and author Tabata (Ninja Slayer: Machine of Vengeance, Akumetsu) are also starting a new arc of the manga as of the 11th issue. The two will host an autograph event to commemorate the anime announcement at the upcoming "Young Black Jack x Black Jack Goods Shop" in Shinjuku on May 23. The shop is opening on the sixth floor of the Marui Annex building on May 15 and will be open until June 1.

Young Black Jack is a prequel to Osamu Tezuka's classic series about a brilliant maverick doctor who practices without a license. Ōkuma and author Tabata launched the ongoing series in Young Champion in 2011 and Akita Shoten will publish the eighth compiled volume on May 20 in Japan. The prequel follows Black Jack when he was still a medical student in the 1960s.

I hope that Vertical might pick this up and offer a version of the manga translated into English.

Young Black Jack will be debuting this fall on TBS and BS-TBS in Japan.

I have a pretty good feeling that, eventually, one of the official online streaming sites will pick this up and give it English subtitles.

No news on an official stream yet, but we do have confirmation of some voice actors and staff from Young Black Jack.

Akio Ohtsuka, who voiced Black Jack in most, if not all, of the previous anime iterations of the series is going to be the narrator this time around, while newcomer Yuichiro Umehara will voice Black Jack.

A few of the staff from previous Black Jack anime are returning as well, including Miyuki Katayama (key animator from the original Black Jack OVA and Black Jack Final), Nana Miura (key animator from Black Jack Final) Masato Shibata (art director from the original Black Jack TV anime, Black Jack 21, and Black Jack Final), and Tamami Watabe (editor for Black Jack Final).

Not sure. That character does look a lot like Lamp though.

It is Lamp. And there's Hyakkimaru in the upper left.

There was also a video posted with the anime's theme song and some animation from it. Looks promising.

EDIT: Anime News Network just published an article that notes the guest Tezuka characters that will appear in Young Black Jack. There's some pretty obscure ones in there.

Also, YBJ is premiering in Japan on October 1, a week from Thursday.

Unfortunately the video has been taken down because of a copyright claim. I really wanted to take a look at the animation quality.

I'm overall pretty excited to see the direction of this series.
