Dr Kenzo Tenma is a genius surgeon working in post-Cold War Germany who has a bright future ahead of him. He is admired by his colleagues, loved by his patients, and due to marry his boss' daughter, the beautiful Eva Heinemann. One day, when two patients in desperate need of emergency surgery are wheeled into his hospital, Tenma faces a terrible choice of saving the orphaned boy who came first or the mayor of Düsseldorf, whose recovery would raise the hospital's profile and boost his own career. Against the demands of his superior, Tenma does what he believes is right and saves the child. However, his decision not only damages his prospects, but unleashes a chain of events so horrific that it might have come from the depths of his worst nightmares. Laden with guilt, Tenma begins a journey across Germany in search of a formidable young man who will challenge his morals, his love for life, and his very sanity.

There's the surgery element, but also more than that. Both doctors of their respective series are respectable and free thinking individuals. The stories of each series both have a overall mystery that begs for a resolution.

Both Black Jack 21 and Lupin III Dead or Alive involve the protagonist being targeted by people who want them dead. Also both are at times extremely over the top and for maximum enjoyment should not be taken TOO seriously. So if you like the action and death threats in one then you may well enjoy the other.

If like a series with a strong main character, a few good plot twist, as well as a slightly dark feel at times to it then these can go to gether very well. However both have very different animation styles so can make a little defficult if you dont like the said style

Human Crossing

Human Crossing

There is nothing stranger than life, and modern day Japan quietly watches over the comings and goings of thirteen completely unrelated lives and their stories. From a boxer fighting the scars of his childhood, to a father vying for the attention of his disinterested son, all experience the complex eccentricities and intricacies of relationships. Do memories and experiences really make us a stronger person for the bigger picture, or are most people happy just to sit back and let life pass them by?
