1968: a year of massive change and social upheaval. As science unleashes new miracles, the U.S. war in Vietnam approaches it's zenith, and radical counterculture movements prompt a dawning generation to reevaluate almost every aspect of life. While others protest and riot in the streets, a disfigured medical student in Japan faces a different battle, confronting the ethical challenges of a system torn between innovation, bureaucracy, and corruption. To fight from within risks Kuroo Hazama's own promising career as a surgeon, while another, darker, path draws him towards a world of illegal transplants, organized crime, and revolution. At long last, the origins of Osamu Tezuka's legendary vigilante surgeon are unveiled in YOUNG BLACK JACK!
