The Exhibition: Young Black Jack- tracking down the root of Kuroo Hazama
Young Black Jack is a manga work serialized from November 2011 on Young Champion. Though appearing on the magazine which is targeted for young men, the work has become popular among young girls, being supported by a wide range of generations. Now the work is finally turned into TV animation series to be broadcast this fall.
Young Black Jack, based on Black Jack authored by Tezuka Osamu, is a story of Kuroo Hazama (later known as Black Jack) in his youth. Set in 60’s in Japan, the story reveals the reason why he later becomes an unlicensed shadowy doctor charging unreasonable medical fees.
The work also has an aspect as an homage to Tezuka Osamu, having some Tezuka characters make cameo appearances in it.
