I read it until volume 16 (physical tankobon) and it's extremely respectable
with the art, story, medical research, etc.

Shame the scanlation is slow on this one.

Highly, highly recommended!

it is ridiculous how deadly small impacts are on this things. if you so much as bump an old lady on the street you and her are both going to pop a lung and get blood build up inbetween your skull and brain

I really like how this time travelling manga does not dwell on romance, but rather on the time period and how the doctor manages to change the time period.

For a historical time travelling manga, this is a first of its genre. It's a must read!!!

I really liked this manga. A big plus is that this is a time slip manga. I coincidentally found out about this when I read a similar work called "Nobunaga no Chef" because I needed another manga to read. I love that you get to learn so many things in the medical field that you don't know about without research. I've learned many things to prevent and counter diseases from this manga. It must take extensive research to create this manga.

It sucks that its been almost 3 months since the last release(chapter 28). It must be really hard to translate this manga because there are many medical terms you need to translate; you might even need to research some of the diseases to help the readers understand.

Overall it's a great manga. If you like time slip genres, you will like this.

I agree with the guys below me. The manga is a masterpiece in terms of research, art, characterization and writing. And the lead has a beard ! Isn´t that great ? Most astonishing of all is how well topics like emancipation and prostitution are handled. Period mangas sometimes stumble here and go for cheap thrills. But not here.
No wonder the series won an award ! I have literally no criticisms.
Hopefully the author´s "Ryuu - Ron" will be scanlated too. Other quality medical mangas include Black Jack
(the 90s ova is pure bliss), Monster and The Tree in the Sunlight.

Like everyone has said, this manga is great!
The art is perfect for a seinen.
The progress is steady and the story is thrilling. But lately, Jin hasnt failed yet which is a bit boring.
I dont know how Jin, a surgeon, has knowledge about every single illness that occurs, is that normal these days?
But that is made up for with romance, supernatural and hopefully one day he goes abroad with more adventures.
This manga is very informative and no doubt the author has a wide knowledge of history and medicine/surgery.
I'm glad EG scans picked this up because they update quickly and regularly. I feel sorry for them because not just anyone can translate all these medical terms.

Read 21 chapters in one night. It's very good. I would read more but it's not scanlated any further. I hope Easy Going Scans keeps working on this as I see this becoming a popular manga.

There really is no more to say, it's interesting from chapter one on, just give it a chance.

Once again I was on the hunt for new manga to read and I bumped into this series (much like I bump to many others). The synopsis piqued my interest and I must say this is one gem of a manga. Unique plot and likeable characters, the art style is not fully to my liking but since it's an older series I'm more than happy to forgive it as the story as a whole is fantastic. Word of advice however, if you don't like gore or surgical procedures then you may not want to read this, otherwise go for it!

This manga should get more atention , art and story are both really good . I am very interested to see how a doctor from our times would try to cure people in the edo era . For those who watched the drama based on this manga , you should know that there are many differences between them ( and you can see them from first 6 chapters ) . So overall if you want to see how a Doctor House would treat people in edo era , this is a manga for you .
