Description
From etc:

Dr. Katou is an ambitious woman who seeks to revolutionize the corrupt and inefficient Japanese medical system from within by becoming a professor in a teaching hospital. She enlists a maverick surgeon, Dr. Asada Ryuutarou, to help her with research that would catapult her to a professorship should they succeed and publish. However, Asada's refusal to conform to the system soon threatens to destroy not only her plans but her entire career. Katou is prepared to do anything, including going along with the system, in order to achieve her end goal, but she begins to question whether she has gone too far as Asada's actions bring many of the system's shortcomings to light.

This manga received the 50th Shogakukan Manga Award for general manga in 2005.

i was kind of misled when i first read chap1 but there are no more traces of it as the story progresses, except that the vulgar attitude of asada still remains lol. anyway i've only read 2 promising medical story manga with nice art which are this one and Saijou no Meii. right now, TMD is still better for me primarily because i've been reading this one since the ancient times (exaggeration, i think it was around 2005).

Great manga written by an actual doctor. I wish people would stop putting down sajou no meii but there's no question TMD is better.

For those of you who can identify with this review I'll list my favorite mangas.

One piece, Hajime no Ippo, The world god only knows,TMD, Yakitate Japan!!, saije no mei, GTO, detective conan, H2O, The Breaker, biomega, Majin Tantei Nougami Nuero, midori no hibi, with the last three being debatable.

There are others but I can't remember them right now.

Actually, the later volumes (16+)reveal much more characterization as each of the original "bad guys" become much more rounded, each with their failures, their lives, their ideals. Redemption might be too strong a word, but at least they incorporate much more than "refusal to do good". In fact, the simplest way to show such development is by showing their lives outside of the politics and pressures of work - which in my opinion were brilliantly shown. This manga lost my interest in the mid volumes but has came back with a vengeance by filling up all the holes and much more.

TMD has a decent amount of medical background and information, mixed with a certain level of comedy. The characterisation is okay, it's neither intense or shoddy, just somewhere in between.

While the over-the-top dramatization might turn some off, the pacing is pretty decent and stays quite even. The art is quite good and stays fairly consistent. The various characters, even the surgeries and other medical issues are drawn quite well.

My problem, though, is that it's still fairly flashy and tends to jump to conclusions by impressions like "I'm the hero of this story. 'Cos someone's goals are in collusion with me, he's the evil baddie. And oh... anyone else who disapproves of my methods is an evil baddie too unless it's some character who'll turn to my side sooner or later." But that's not how medical conundrums come about or are solved, though.

Note: For those who're looking for a light medical drama with some comedy, this should cover your needs. However, if you're looking for a manga which has an in-depth and gray-faceted approach to the many moral conundrums of medical issues, you might want to try Say Hello to Black Jack.

For the first few chaptesr, Every moment is like a dan!dan!dan! - without the gimmicks, its a good purpose manga with some good concepts but medical profession and miracles seem a bit trivialized by such drama...m a kid of two docs so I have a respect for medical profession but this really is like ....too flashy..but I guess by mid volume 2, it gets into a slower pace which is good..

I thought I'd never come across another manga that addict like Monster. The occasional fanservice, the seedy underbelly of hospital politics, the medical information! It's like House MD and Great Teacher Onizuka rolled up into one package!

uhhhh im going to have to go with GREATEST manga.... seriously

this manga has so many good things: ecchi elements, the occasional boob action, interesting characters, badass story, realism (as far as mangas go), and interesting medical insight... all of this cool shit is blended together into a great manga.

in all seriousness, if you are considering reading this manga, stop considering and read it, you wont be disappointed

You'll get taken for a rollercoaster ride of office politics. At a hospital, office politics means more than just who gets the better office. Each person acts in their own best interest even when their actions are wrong or could even be considered evil.
ETC has taken over the project. Perhaps chapters will be more forthcoming.

Been looking something similar to GTO and this is it with some spice of seriousness instead of humor. Art is excellent. Characterization is quite balanced with plot. Can't wait for more releases.
