A fanart of Black Jack! I love this series so much. <3
Caved and bought a Pinoko figure recently - she was a lot cheaper and easier to find than Black Jack.
My hand slipped
Omg someone buy me this giant, terrifying doll

Black Jack: The Boy Who Came from the Sky has such a charmingly classic Tezuka style to it, it’s hard to believe it came out in 2000, just four years before the Black Jack TV anime. It’s more accurate to the manga chapter it’s based on, with its only changes serving to flesh out the patient-of-the-day Andrei and his family. Bloodier and with a more manga-typical somber ending than the more child-friendly TV series that followed.
(Pinoko in her cookware armour is too cute!)
I wasn’t aware of this! Wow, this is a much better adaptation than the TV Anime, the tone is way more on point. And it’s punchier than the slightly overlong and overwrought OVA epsiodes. Now I’m extra sad about what the TV anime could have been.
You have got to be kidding me
