Trivia / Black Jack

  • Celebrity Voice Actor: In The Two Doctors of Darkness, Kiriko, Rock and Goa are respectively voiced by Takeshi Kaga, Yuma Ishigaki and Shinya Owada.
  • Jossed: The second Kei story seems to have been written specifically to disabuse fans of the notion that Kei/Megumi had been physically transformed into a man by the removal of her ovaries and uterus.
  • Life Imitates Art/Reality Subtext: The manga story Tenacity is pretty heart-wrenching in light of the author's final fate. What makes it even worse it that the dying doctor's personal physician is "played" by Tezuka himself.
    • The same can be said of the Black Jack movie, the plot of which revolves around "super-humans" succumbing to disease and fatality while trying to do what they love.
