Weird, because that video was posted in an Anime News Network article if I remember correctly. :confused:

Here's the video from the official TBS YouTube channel:

I'm pretty excited to see how this anime goes! I wonder if there'll be a lot of Star System characters appearing throughout it. (Also, Lamp has got no business looking that fine.)

Thanks for the new link.

I'm not sure how I feel about the art style or the animation; from the clip(s) it is impossible to tell the quality.

As for all the characters they plan on bringing in I am also really excited! I wonder if they plan on bringing in Kei at any point (but considering the datedness of their particular story I understand why keeping them out would be wise).

...and the news just keeps rolling in! American-based company, Sentai Filmworks, announced today that they have licensed Young Black Jack. They plan to release YBJ digitally first, with a home video release following after that.

Sources: Sentai Filmworks, Anime News Network

HOUSTON, OCTOBER 1, 2015 – Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its latest acquisition, Young Black Jack, as part of the Fall 2015 anime season lineup. Based on the manga written by Yoshiaki Tabata and illustrated by Yūgo Ōkuma, this anime focuses on Osamu Tezuka’s beloved character, Black Jack, in his years as a medical student. Young Black Jack will explore the formative years of one of manga’s most mysterious and iconic characters as he strives to become a master surgeon!

The series will be directed by Atsuko Kase, while Ryosuke Takahashi and Yoshiaki Tabata will handle series composition and scripting respectively. Daisuke Ikeda is composing the music, and renowned studio Tezuka Productions (Astro Boy, the Fantastic Adventures of Unico, the New Adventures of Kimba the White Lion) is animating the series.

Young Black Jack is scheduled for an October 2015 broadcast in Japan and will soon be available domestically through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

Crunchyroll's Young Black Jack page is now available. However, in order to watch the simulcast tonight, you need a premium account. Every episode will become available to free users a week from their release. So, for instance, while premium users can watch the first episode tonight, free users won't be able to watch the first episode until next Friday, October 9.

I'm not able to get a premium account, so I'll have to wait until next week to begin watching this series. For those of you that do have a premium account though, I hope you enjoy the debut of Young Black Jack tonight!

I just finished watching the first ep and I thought it was pretty good. I wasn't digging the art style at first but was already used to it by the end. I think this could be a good series.

It was also kinda neat that during the credits they had cards that would show a picture of the original character from Tezuka's Star System and then the Young Black Jack versions of them. For instance, Sapphire! You could see her briefly in the first ep.

There's also apparently going to be a humanized Hyotantsugi

The art style in the little promo video was really off-putting to me as well, I hope I can look past it. The art style to me looked like the typical "yaoi" art style of which I am not a fan of. I'm not sure when I'll be able to watch it, but I am definitely looking forward to it whenever I can.
