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.

Only reason I stopped reading this 7 years ago was that the scanlations were too slow bigrazz
The criticisms of Japanese Hospital Medicine are the usually the most interesting parts. It's just...fucked up at times.
The medical detail is another highlight, the mangaka knows when to listen to his consultants. It's kinda different, starting reading this when I was around 11 years old and now re-reading when I'm 20 and have some actual medical knowledge. Still, just reading the notes back then almost never left me too confused as to what's going on. The mangaka explained things well in those marginal notes and text boxes/narration.
The election is adding another almost equally intriguing part to he mangaka, though it's not as medically focused (a bit more on relating it back to the Japanese Medical system would be better)
Reading this renews my interest in medicine.

Almost none of the characters in this manga is given background, we have no idea what motivates them, why they do what they do. Asada he's a gold hearted genius who can and will do anything to save someone even if he might die because of it. I might find it easier to believe if only we were provided some backstory on Asada but I'm well on vol.22 and the only thing I know of him is he used to work at North Japan U and some NGO mission in a (presumably) third world country. Every single case is just an opportunity for the mangaka to show off what an awesome surgeon Asada is. And other characters are just there to play second fiddle to Asada and let him do whatever he wants. And the most annoying thing is, whatever it is he does is always right. The only character that holds her stance is Kato and I would have thrown this long time ago if it weren't for her.
Even the one background given is hard to believe:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Gunji realized that he doesn't hate Asada, actually the reason he's been doing all those things he did is to be noticed by Asada (the fujoshi in me saw it as yaoi-ish)
and it came out of nowhere.
Considering the promising start this manga has turned out to be a big disappointment.

I like this manga.
This is... I hardly described it. Mature, intrigue n politics, morality, drama, cool n awesome main char (Dr.Asada tee hee, i want him), nah.... no complain.
I read the manga and already watched the dorama. I like both.

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..

Really good

The plot is addictive. I rather liked how the human aspects of being a doctor is shown here. It's full of goody stuff that seinen should have: the pain, the aspirations, struggle against the system, drama, love, jealousy, human weaknesses, etc.
I thought the character development is kinda slow... But it's there, alright. Just takes some times.
Each character has their moment of fame: their past actions and motivations, why they are the way they are now. It's real cool. Asada's character however remained mostly a mystery.

The only thing I have a problem with is the art... It really scares me sometimes. It's rather rough looking and sometimes monstrous. I don't like looking at it, but well... Once in a while, when the content is good, I'd endure it.

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.

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!

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.
