Black Jack is a manga series by "God of Manga" Osamu Tezuka. Black Jack is the titular character, an enigmatic and aloof doctor who practices without a license. Thus, he doesn't practice in a hospital, but instead rents himself out for exorbitant prices to perform highly complex and often improbable procedures. Basically, he is a bad-ass doctor. But don't let his gruff exterior fool you! He has a heart of gold, and often does what he can to help poor/nice people, over rich bastards.
Black Jack is the most accessible Tezuka manga that I've read thus far. Tezuka uses a short story format for the series, usually aiming for 20-page stories.
I don't really consider this a spoiler, because it occurs in the volume. Mostly, I don't want to cut it because it is SO HEINOUS that even people uninterested in manga maybe interested in the WTF factor.
So, Black Jack falls in love with a woman, woman gets uterine cancer. Black Jack will operate on her.
I KNOW, WHAT? Later:
If a man told me I was no longer a woman because I had a hysterectomy, the last thing I would do is kiss him.
IF ANYBODY LEAVES A COMMENT SAYING THAT YOU NEED WOMAN ORGANS TO BE A WOMAN, I WILL BE DISPLEASED.11:05 AM
