I made this video for two reasons...
1. There aren't that many AMVs out there portraying the relationship between a father and a daughter,
2. Black Jack is REALLY under-appreciated in the general anime community (not to mention here on AMV.org). If I can get even one person to watch the show because they liked this video, I'll consider it a success. :)
90% of the footage is from Japanese R2s (many thanks to Dokool for renting and burning them for me), the last 10% I unfortunately had to pull from fansubs since I didn't realize I was going to need that episode, and this show is probably NEVER going to be licensed here in the US (*grumble grumble*).
Yes, I am aware there's some frame-blending going on. No, I couldn't figure out how to fix it. :\
I'd like to thank Ada Palmer for introducing me to Black Jack, and to Maekawa-san, owner of the Takarazuka Osamu Tezuka museum, for showing my fiancee and I around when we visited, answering all my Black Jack related questions, and putting up with all my fangirl squeeing.
This video is dedicated to my father. Yes, Dad, this is "one of those weird Japanese cartoons with the guys screaming at each other for whole episodes." I love you too.
