Say Hello to Black Jack


Well, I’m back from a hectic academic week. When I was taking a short break from studying, I saw this manga and decided to quickly read it.

I guess I like the medical genre since I have read quite a few manga in that category. This one contains the usual drama regarding Japan’s medical system and is quite a good read.

  6. […] medical manga like a glove. Other series I’ve read that fall into this category were Say Hello to Black Jack and GodHand Teru. Even though they might share some general themes, each one is different enough to […]
