Black Jack Karte5 5th Episode: The Owl of San Merida


  • This original video animation series were produced based on the Manga of the same title, but only the same settings were employed. Though inspired by the original Manga, each episode is a completely new story. Characters newly designed by Sugino Akio were used in place of Tezuka Osamu's drawings.

    Karte: 5   The Owl of San Merida

    The story is inspired by "A Passed Moment." In the original, Black Jack finds on a taxi driver's back a scar from an operation that indicates that the surgeon is more skillful than even Black Jack himself. In this animated version, however, Black Jack discovers an artistic scar from an operation on a young Englishman's body. Every night, the young man has a dream in which the same woman gets killed. What is the meaning of the dream? How are the scar and the dream related? And who is it who possesses surgical skills that surpass even those of Black Jack?
