Stop the presses, folks! I, Sarah Hill, actually LIKED this manga graphic novel! It's like a creepy episode of ER, and I love me a good medical mystery. Dr. Tenma is a Japanese man who moved to West Germany in the 1980's to learn brain surgery. He becomes the best, and tries to climb the political medical ladder, but decides that patients are more important than hospital directors and their doctors. Unknowingly, he creates a monster who preys on the innocent. I actually want to read the next volume--who knew this was possible for me? :)
