Mr. Takagi?

Mr. Hiroshi Takagi?

So, you don't remember?

Not even my face?

I see.

Never thought you'd f orget this mug.


I think everything's mixed up.

You had an accident.

You were out driving.

A truck crashed into yours.

The driver admits it's his fault.

I had you taken to

my old university hospital.

We were the ones who ruined it.

After all this time.

He said himself that he'd

never make it as a doctor.

I wonder why.

Ever since he was young he told us

he wanted to be a doctor.

But somewhere along the way

he became lost to us.

He's f orgotten all that now.

You okay?

"Doctors and Medicine"


Come and see!

You remember about this?

Do you understand this?

Well, take your time.

No need to rush.

Medical College

Admlssions Ceremony


on entering medical college!

What do you want to live here for?

Do you have to move out?

Ah, and there's your college?

I suppose it is near.

Look, I'm worried.

Does it have to be here?

The ovum, a product of

almost pure chance... means of cellular growth,

divergence and migration...

...creates an organism.

This person experienced trauma

to the frontal lobe section.

This area is responsible f or

personality and memory.

From this we can conclude the following:

Human character is not a constant...

The brain and spinal cord f orm

the central nervous system.

Nerve cells are concentrated

in this area.

I wonder, then...

where the soul lies...

Beneath this, however...

...there is the vast realm

of the unconscious.

It is here that our suppressed desires...

...can cause deep mental conflict

as they strive to realize themselves.


I, er...

When streaking the petri sample

take your time, or you'll contaminate it.

Very good, Mr. Takagi.

Wow! Yours is excellent.

How do you do it?

How's mine?

What a mess!

It's contaminated!

What are you lot up to?

Back to your places.

Stop joking around.

Why are you telling me this

on the phone?

And how can you say it so lightly?

So my Ms. Yoshimoto is after Takagi?

You can't take your eyes off him.


So you've been spying on us?

What's wrong with you?

Is it about the entrance exam?

About Takagi being top?

That's why you changed tack, eh?

Or you approached me only to know

the result?

For the price of sweets you should

be more careful.

You sneak y B*TCH!

I understand you want to be alone.

But don't brood too much.

I had some of your furnlture taken

there, and put In the same place.

I thought it would help you remember.

Ikuml Yoshimoto

Hlroshl Takagl

I'm third. Ikumi beat me again.

Hiroshi, you're second.


How did you do it?

Tell me your secret.

Hey, everybody!

Dr. Nakai has been found, dead.

He hanged himself.

It's still not officially announced yet.

But I heard it in the research lab.

Who's Dr. Nakai?

The microbiology teacher.

No, you're kidding.

So, dissectlon classes are startlng, eh?

It's like a doctors' Initiation ceremony.

So far, what you've done

has been a walk in the park!

Come this far In 3 years,

and that's the best of all.

Slnce you started mediclne

I swear granddad's plcture

has started smlling!

Medical history stems from wanting to

understand the body's mechanism.

Dr. Genpaku Sugita was amazed by

the similarity in Dutch anatomical texts...

and his texts.

So he worked on translating them.

Eventually "Kaitai Shinsho" was

published in 1774 in Tokyo.

Trust your own eyes. This is

the key point, whatever the century.
