Homma not Honda[edit]

I think that 'Dr. Honda' is not correct, but 'Dr. Homma'.

http://en.tezuka.co.jp/manga/sakuhin/classification/ser_8.html 163 'Homma Hematoma' deals with his death.

The Kanji also reads it as 'Honma', not 'Honda'.

Origin of black scars[edit]

About the origin of black jacks scars in trivia section: 'said by some sources to be skin grafts from a friend who was Black' However, in episode two of the new black jack series, it says that his skin was reattached by Dr honma. Can someone clear this up?

In the manga of Black Jack, as a flashback to explain how Black Jack got this "patchwork of skin", it is explained that some were from his own less vital parts and other parts including his face was from a black boy in the same school class as he is. It is unclear if they were friends then, but they did became friends after that. Dr. Honma offered to regraft his facial skin but Black Jack declined to keep it as a memory of generosity. So both are true. Of course as a cliche in Black Jack stories, this generous black person grow up to be a scientist (botanical), went to Africa to help end famines, and is killed in a civil war. --Revth 08:37, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
Oops. From Japanese Wikipedia. His skin is from half-African, half-Japanese boy named Takashi (His last name was never disclosed). He led an environment protection movement in Africa and was killed. --Revth 08:59, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Number of volumes[edit]

Also, there are 17 volumes not 12, I looked on amazon.co.jp. Am I missing something?

Indeed, the "definitive edition" (not chronological, chapters are mixed) is all of 17 bunko of 300+ page each. Dunno where that number of 12 came from? I've updated the infobox... P.S. after looking it up: "12 volumes" was the previous (1987-1988) uncompleted Akita edition. The definitive bunko edition started in 1994 and did 16 volumes until 2000 [1]. However, this Tezuka.co.jp listing isn't up-to-date: the 17th bunko was published in 2003 (it completes all the serialized chapters). A last 18th bunko is intended some time in the future (that would cull the last 12 odd chapters irregularly published after the series end). Cf. also the external links I've added to the article for more sources, including a map of all chapters and where they went inside of each of the four Japanese collections ;) -- 62.147.112.243 00:47, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Was the first 25 volume set not complete? I would think it would make more sense to show the original 25 volumes. Grapeofdeath (talk) 09:06, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

More on the trivia[edit]

I was seeing the old 1950 Astro Boy series and in the episode "The Time Machine", Black Jack made a cameo appereance but by the name of Dr. Rogée (or something like that) along with his nurse by the name of Penny. I never read the manga or seen the anime but I know it was him: he had black and white hair and a scar on the face. Can someone add to this. I would do it but as I stated, I never seen the anime or read the manga. --198.147.225.29 04:58, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

After reading the article of Tezuka, I learned that the particular episode of Astro Boy I mentioned had cameo appereance by many of Tezuka's work so I don't think this should be added.--TKGB 22:43, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
If you want another Blackjack cameo, he (or, at least, a lookalike reincarnation) appears in the movie Phoenix 2772.


Doctor K[edit]

I think it's based on black jack. This manga is very great. Anyone knows how long it is? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 60.229.173.239 (talk) 06:22, 15 January 2007 (UTC).

Licensing[edit]

I removed the licensing information for the 2004 anime and The Two Doctors of Darkness from the info box. It previously stated that they were both licensed in the United States by U.S. Manga Corps and Manga Entertainment respectively. This was untrue as neither the anime series nor the film are licensed for release outside of Japan.69.180.93.172 06:57, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Well, yes & no. The OAVs are licensed by US Manga Corps (still are if I'm not mistaken) & the film is licensed by Palm Pictures. As far as I can tell, both licenses are still current & they are still being sold/produced. If you have information to the contrary, please show the reasons behind it. As far as the other tv shows, they are not licensed in the US at this time. Tokyogirl79 (talk) 10:13, 9 April 2008 (UTC)Tokyogirl79

Too much Black Jack on one page?[edit]

After reading through the Black Jack page, I think that there may be a need to separate some of the material here on this page into their own pages. I recommend pages for:

Black Jack (manga character)
Black Jack (anime) (as more than a Redirect Page)
Black Jack (TV Drama)
List of Black Jack characters
Pinoko

It will help un-clutter the page and should help make Black Jack a page worthy of Good Article status.

OtakuMan 16:39, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

I say "go for it!" But you have to know if the spin-off articles don't have enough info to justify them, they'd probably end up redirected here. If it's the clutter that worries you, something can be done without creating many articles. See the before [2] and after [3] of the Captain Harlock article.--Nohansen 21:48, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

The character of Black Jack now has its own page: Black Jack (character).--Nohansen 04:18, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, we need seperate pages for each of the anime, IMO. J'onn J'onzz (talk) 20:10, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Biwamaru[edit]

The Biwamaru entry is not well written. However, I am not familiar with the character enough to rewrite it. Can someone with more knowledge of the character tackle this?--Diggnity 05:05, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Just give me a little bit of time to do a little more research and I'll take care of it.

First Anime appearance[edit]

Does anyone happen to know which of the Tezuka TV specials Black Jack appeared in? The article mentions Astro Boy/Tetsuwan Atom as possibly being his first televised appearance, but I think it must have certainly been one of the TV specials, possibly Marine Express? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.21.190.132 (talk) 08:03, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Its not Kimba[edit]

Kimba the White Lion appears quite frequently as a cameo, especially in episode 7 of 2004 TV as the main animal saved (in this episode he is renamed "Luna-luna"). That white cub was not Kimba ( Leo ) but Lune, Kimba's son, take a look at the Kimba the white lion article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.122.105.214 (talk) 20:53, 2 April 2008 (UTC)


Should the passages be reworded?[edit]

Many of the passages reiterate pronouns in simple periods that are no more than 2 lines long, if even that. Furthermore, the article lacks a lot when it comes to proper syntax. Shouldn't the articles diction be rectified? —Preceding unsigned comment added by RaspK FOG (talkcontribs) 18:08, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Black Jack is a roboticist or an engineer.[edit]

Pinokos body is mostly synthetic. Also he operates on a sentient computer that runs a hospital, though that isn't very defining. Pinoko appears in almost every issue, so that he can make synthetic bodies is a defining aspect of Dr. Black Jack. CensoredScribe (talk) 16:37, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Merge Young Black Jack article here?[edit]

I think it is better for the article Young Black Jack to be separate and not merge with the article Black Jack. But I believe that it is best to reach a consensus in the Wikipedia community. Is it better to merge the Young Black Jack article, or to stay separate and add the link of the Young Black Jack article to the related anime section of the infobox of Black Jack? CunningRabbitXenon07 (talk) 08:16, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

It's fine to keep as separate articles. And you don't have to reach a consensus for something that has not been questioned by anyone. If someone were trying to merge it and you're wanting to keep, you should try to seek for consensus. But to establish an a priori consensus doesn't forbid someone to want its merger.
