Nico Nico Douga to stream dubbing session with original cast on Saturday

The Black Jack original video anime series by the late director Osamu Dezaki will get an 11th and final volume, more than a decade after the previous volume. The video anime series adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's manga originally ran from 1993 to 2000. Not only will Akio Ohtsuka and Yūko Mizutani reprise their respective voice roles of Black Jack and Pinoko, but they will record their lines during a live video stream on the Nico Nico Douga website on Saturday, May 14 at 2:00 p.m. Japan Time (1:00 a.m. EDT).

Central Park Media's U.S. Manga Corps label once released the previous volumes on home video in North America. Tezuka Productions also now sells the English-dubbed version on the iTunes Store in the United States.
