Transcript:
As I stand in the wind on a hill by a port town,
my head feels unusually empty.
I was watching the town from the south side of the shore.
And so I sunk my unsteady passion into the depths of the sea.
This surging power...
It's something hidden in everyone, everywhere.
Day after day, everyone tries their best.
But people get annoyed when I mention it.
It makes me glad...
that I found my place here.
I searched for the reason
why we can believe in the same air
as long as we're alive.
He weaves the thread of life with his miraculous control of a scalpel.
The genius surgeon who lives on a cape.
His name is Black Jack.
Black Jack...
Shrinking!
Originally "Shrinking" by Tezuka Osamu
I'll be away somewhere between a week and ten days.
It might even be longer.
Watch the house while I'm gone.
OK!
Aye-aye!
Not fighting back like you usually do?
I'll send you off with a smile today.
That's what a wife does.
And I can't miss the final episode of this drama series.
What? You have something to say?
See ya.
OK!
Have a good one.
Travel safely!
Hazama Kuroo - no, Black Jack -
you're probably shocked by this sudden letter.
I wish to request your assistance.
I cannot write the details for certain reasons,
but I really need your help.
Please fly here as soon as possible.
See you then.
Dr. Black Jack!
Welcome.
I'm White, Dr. Togakushi's assistant.
Starvation from drought, terrible communal disease -
it's horrible here.
The land around here is no longer suitable for any form of life to inhabit.
Black Jack!
Dr. Togakushi.
How have you been?
I'm glad to see you.
You haven't changed at all, like suddenly sending me a letter and summoning me to such a remote land.
How many years has it been since we last met?
Indeed, it's been a while.
So Doctor, what's happening?
Come in.
Take a look at this.
Is it a doll?
No, it's a real, stuffed specimen
of a lion.
What?!
How can that be?!
Then are they all -
Yes, they were all once living adult animals.
I first thought they had some anomalous development,
but further research indicated that it was a type of atrophy -
a communal disease where the body shrinks.
And in the end, they die.
The body shrinks?
Moreover, this symptom was only seen in a limited area,
but it started spreading.
And it's starting to affect people too.
I tried every treatment I could think of, but nothing's worked so far.
The treatment, the root cause - they're both still a mystery.
If this communal disease is real, then why are you not reporting it?!
Just imagine if I did do that!
The entire world would be in a panic!
And the people who are overwhelmed by their fear will close this area off,
killing everything in it.
Black Jack, please help!
I want you, my student with the best surgical skill ever, to find the cure for this mysterious disease.
I see.
So those are the details of the request?
Doctor, my treatment will be expensive.
Just like I heard from the rumors.
And you're even making me pay.
Your reward will be 20,000,000.
That's the maximum amount this country's government can offer.
Black Jack!
Out of the question!
100,000,000.
I want at least 100,000,000.
What?!
Finding out the truth about this disease may save the entire human race,
or even all life on this planet!
That's none of my business!
Besides, I'm a surgeon and have no interest in research.
Please ask a specialist.
I see what's going on.
You are scared of this disease.
You're scared of being infected, aren't you?
Then it may be too late.
There is a possibility that you may already be infected,
because you directly touched a patient with your hand.
Where...
Maybe your body does seem a bit small.
Yes.
I am infected with this disease and have developed the symptom.
My body's been shrinking for a week now.
The incubation period for this disease is a month.
If you are infected, you will shrink too.
And if you go home now, you will spread this disease to the entire world.
So now what will you do, Black Jack?
Day 5 of my stay.
I keep running diagnoses on Dr. Togakushi.
I've hypothesized from many different angles and collected numerous data to verify them,
but I cannot find any abnormalities.
But the patient's body is shrinking every day!
The cells are shrinking while keeping their original structure.
And the old cells look young.
So, this shrinking symptom is not a disease...
Is it caused by something else?
Animals and people are dying because of this disease.
But what's causing it?
Doctor!
Why...
Why are they shrinking?!
It's no use, Doctor.
There's no way you can find the truth behind this disease.
Quit being skeptical.
I want as many samples as I can get,
so I don't care what species it is.
Are you not scared?
Once I accept a job, I always complete it.
That is my ideology.
But...
Also, although it was a discount, this job will bring in 20,000,000.
But it does no good if you die before getting it.
It's a rhino.
And it's still alive!
It's shrunk quite a bit.
Yeah.
Give me a hand.
Let's take it to the lab.
OK.
I got hurt!
Are you OK?
That infected rhino injured me.
Now I'm infected too!
Calm down!
It's not definite yet.
I know I'm infected!
I'm totally done for.
My body will shrink too.
I'm doomed!
Doctor, let's run away.
I can't stand it anymore!
I don't want to stay here a second longer!
Let's run away with this car!
Go ahead if you want.
I'm staying.
Then give me the car!
I will run!
I will run and live!
Oh, bother.
Doc's cup.
I wonder if he's doing OK.
Doctor,
take a look at this.
This is an elephant I found dead in the drought area ninety kilometres west of here.
Judging from the tusks, it's an adult elephant.
It's slow, but the infected area is spreading.
Yes.
Looks like we don't have much time left.
We must hurry with our research.
Day 10.
Not only have we not found a cure for the disease,
but there's not even so much as a hint that might bring us closer to the truth behind it.
What in the world is this disease?
Just what is going on here?
Black Jack,
do you want to take a break?
Spending time with you reminds me of a time from the old days.
It was when you were still an intern.
Don't be so conceited!
A doctor's skill alone won't save the patient's life!
But Doctor!
Don't you see?!
If there were any mistakes, you could have killed your patient - that girl!
You were still a doctor that was wet behind the ears, thinking that skill was everything.
But then I got fed up with the Japanese medical system, left the country, and ended up like this.
So I couldn't laugh at your immaturity.
Doctor, it's getting late.
Let's get some rest.
Right.
Hey!
What do you want?
Do people live up ahead?
Nope, everybody's left.
We're fleeing too.
Fleeing?
Yeah.
There's no food or water left.
And now that disease.
Everyone shrank and died.
Don't tell him that.
A disease where you shrink and die?
Tell me!
Where is this village?!
It's twenty kilometres west of here.
But you'd better not go near it.
I'm sure it's God's divine punishment.
God's divine punishment...
Day 11.
The village seventy kilometres to the south was hit.
All that's left here are the figures of dead cattle and people who died helplessly.
Doctor,
this is subjectively speaking,
but the areas where this disease spreads is always a place with severe drought.
Drought?
Is that somehow related to this disease?
I don't know.
I can't find anything.
There's nothing wrong with the body, yet it keeps shrinking.
Animals, people - they all shrink!
And then eventually die.
And all I can do is to just watch!
It's like...
It's like I'm being strangled with a cotton cloth!
You're giving up already?
And this is the notorious Black Jack!
How pathetic!
You should know what to do next!
But Doctor! That's...
It's OK!
Use my body!
Overcome this disease even if you must use my body as your guinea pig!
Black Jack!
I will make a local incision and implant some thyroid preparation.
Black Jack, do you hate me?
Doctor...
I won't ask your forgiveness for getting you involved in all this.
But I could think of no other way.
I'm really sorry.
I never hated you, Doctor.
Day 15.
I started the first operation.
As long as I'm using my scalpel, no mistakes are permissible.
But have I ever performed an operation that made me so anxious?
Administering thyroid preparation.
It's been five days since the operation.
There's no sign of the operation having any effect.
Dr. Togakushi's body is still shrinking like before.
Day 21. I performed the second operation on Dr. Togakushi.
I opened the skull and implanted a cell proliferation agent.
I don't know if it will be effective.
But, please...
Day 25.
The second operation was a failure too.
Dr. Togakushi has shrunk to the size of a baby, and he has fallen into a coma.
I repeat blood transfusions and injections of cardiotonic.
Doctor!
I thought about this in my dream...
A few days ago you said the disease would spread in areas with a drought.
Yes.
During a shortage of food, wild rats produce small offspring;
therefore fewer offspring survive.
But Doctor, that's not a disease.
It's a natural phenomenon.
Right, that's how nature works.
Perhaps this is the same as that.
We don't know the cause,
there's nothing wrong in the bodies,
and yet they die!
And you consider these deaths part of a natural phenomenon?!
That's doesn't solve anything!
Everything keeps shrinking.
Why?!
Why do they shrink?!
Give me a hint!
A hint!
If you do, I'll give you 100,000,000!
No, 1,000,000,000! Or as much as you want!
Hang in there, Doc...
Day 28.
I still haven't found a cure, and now I'm out of things to try.
I feel utterly helpless.
I'm jealous of you, looking so relaxed.
By the way, you've been with him all this time, so why aren't you infected?
Chickens are getting infected.
But why not you, since you're also a bird?
Could it be?!
This is the area where I found that rhinoceros.
If the disease is spreading among the animals,
why do some remain that are still healthy?
Why?
It's a herd of zebras.
They're eating the corpse of one of their own.
And others are digging the dirt and eating it.
Neither parrots nor zebras are carnivorous.
And why the dirt?
Could it be?!
Do they...
instinctively know to ingest whatever is effective from the dead body?
And this dirt they were eating...
Maybe this is the key!
This dirt contains three thousand times more calcium than normal.
That means...
There's no change in the cell.
Yes!
I finally did it!
I can prevent the body shrinkage with this!
Doctor!
I did it!
I made the medication!
I'll give it to you now!
Doctor, don't you see?
You'll be safe!
Did you find the cause of the disease?
No, not that.
But I made a medication that will stop it's progression!
Good job, Black Jack.
Use it on yourself.
I won't survive.
I'm ready to die.
Doctor! Why?!
We finally have a way to overcome this disease,
but if I lose you...
Don't give up!
It's OK.
There's probably no real cause for this disease.
If there is one, it'd be a warning from God.
From God?
Yes.
I think I can see His message.
By shrinking the bodies in famine-plagued areas,
he may be trying to tell us that we must shrink our bodies
in order for all creatures to survive on this planet Earth with its limited resources.
But I'm sure people will continue to survive.
Right, Black Jack?
Doctor?
Dr. Togakushi!
Doctor!
Doctor!
God!
You're cruel!
Doctors cure patients to save their lives!
And if the world is overpopulated as a result, causing food shortages and the death of many...
If that's your message,
then why...
Why do doctors exist?!
I want to capture your heart with my silly smile.
Only look straight at me.
Being kind isn't good enough.
I want to get in touch with your true heart,
deep within the you that nobody else sees.
Being in the gentle sunlight,
I wish on the clover that plays the melody of dreams,
and I search for a ray of hope beyond the blue skies,
because I want to stay by your side forever.
The promise we made long ago in a far away place...
is finally coming to a realization, overcoming the incredible distance,
just as it was led by the light.
I know of no such child!
Oh, my goodness!
You see...
A curse?
Don't cut!
Don't cut!
Don't cut!
Why are you keeping it alive?
Fetus in fetu?
Is that you?
Don't think about getting any help.
Who is she?!
She's your...
Next Karte - The Birth of Pinoko.
It's a rhino.
And it's still alive!
