This year's 23rd issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion magazine announced on Tuesday that Yū-Go Ōkuma (Yakuza Girl ~Blade Shikake no Yanayome~) will launch the Young Black Jack manga in next issue on November 22. Yoshiaki Tabata (Akumetsu, Wolf Guy - Wolfen Crest, Shin Mazinger Zero) is writing the story based on the brilliant maverick doctor created by manga pioneer Osamu Tezuka. The prequel follows Black Jack when he was still a medical student in the 1960s.
Actor Masaki Okada (Hana Zakari no Kimi-tachi e, Boku no Hatsukoi o Kimi ni Sasagu) already starred as the young Black Jack in a live-action television special that aired in April. Kentaro Otani (live-action NANA films) directed the special.
