If you've read any of the old Black Jack manga about a rogue, mercenary doctor, imagine those. Now imagine that the doctor's a woman who (as a child) was rescued from an organ farm after her eyes were sold, that her replacement eyes give her x-ray vision, and that (as an aside) hospitals are staffed with martial-arts nurses who conveniently wear skirts for the benefit of those who find entertainment in gratuitous panty shots. Got that? Then you've pretty much got a perfect picture of Ray.

Over the top storyline that sounded interesting, but wasn't executed well. If I happen to run across the next volume, I might pick it up.

I liked the premise, but the hospital staffed entirely by super-genius kung-fu high school students was just too much.

Really interesting! Too bad there isn't more than one copy in the library system...
