    Default Team Medical Dragon-Is it true medical conditions in Japan are as in the Manga?

    Have you read Team Medical Dragon about a University hospital in Japan where the Professor reigns as a Feudal lord in the hospital? And what ever decision he takes is the law there,even if it is a bad decision based on self interests,and where mistakes made by superiors are to be covered by the colleagues.No one can question their superiors in their decisions without risking demotion or other penalties. Or is all that is in the manga series complete fiction having no connection at all with reality in University hospitals in Japan.
    Can some one who lives in Japan & have gone to university hospitals for treatment let me know?

    not sure, but it's not the first manga to investigate this issue. "Say hello to black jack" is another one that's about the japanese medical system and how it sucks. i wouldn't know first hand, since i don't live there.

    Hmm. I think it's based mostly on facts but it's more or less distorted and/or exaggerated since it's manga, after all.

    What kind of world would you create?

    Well... I live in Japan, but have only gone to a small clinic twice for a foot injury, but seriously... They don't feel reliable and they seem to give you extra medication just to get more money out of you. That's all I've noticed as of yet.

    Thanks for the feedback all of you.Those of you who have not yet read the manga, try to read them, you will understand what I was talking about better. I have tried not to do any spoilers about the series.Echoblaze where can the manga "Say hello to black jack" be found ?Thanks in advance. I hope we can get a reply from someone who has visited a university hospital for treatment once at least.

    ^I don't know how much of it has been scanlated, but there is one volume acailable on gotlurk.net, but you need to use IRC to download it. And take note that it is not advised to ask for downloads in this section. There exists a special section for just that.
