The vet, Iwashiro Tesshou and his Nursing Dog... err... Dog.
Wild Life is a manga created by Fujisaki Masato, which tells the story of Tesshou, a veterinarian. He is an ordinary high school delinquent who has no skills but a perfect pitch. He goes on to become a veterinarian and uses his skill of perfect pitch to cure sick animals. Despite its comedic and light approach, this comic really has a lot to say about the life of vets and their work on wild life. It is both heartwarming and funny, and filled with adorable animals.This series provides examples of
Author Tract: Hoo boy, chapter 49. The main characters take a moment to talk about how the West's ban on whale fishing is misguided, that whale populations are increasing, and how not controlling whale populations may result in environmental chaos. It's honestly a bit jarring to see politics brought up in this manga, especially when one would think that the characters, supporters of conservation themselves, would be against whale fishing. See it here.
Awesome by Analysis: Almost all the main characters, since it's a required skill. But Hosho bring this to a whole new level: she's using her FANTASY, and boy her fantasy is wild and useful!
But Not Too Foreign: Averted. The veterinarians of R.E.D. go all around the world and therefore meet people from many different ethnicities. Surprisingly, the foreigners, such as Americans and Africans are drawn realistically to look American and African rather than the usual re-coloring of a normally drawn manga character.
Tesshou: I'll tie you to my motorbike and take you on a death tour around Japan, or use seawater from Tokyo Bay to boil you on national television. Then I'll turn your body into an anatomical model and lock you up into the "Extreme Cold Experience" House in Cosmo World. Only an abnormal corpse will ever be found...
Super Senses: Tesshou has a perfect pitch. He can hear the slightest sounds, such as the beating of the heart of an animal, or the rhythm of its breathing, and uses the skill to tell if the animals are suffering any difficulties. It is of a genetic origin.
