My Favorite Anime Doctors

I know it’s been a while since I last posted a list, but the topic of this list is very appropriate for what’s happening in my life right now. On the day this list is posted, my youngest child is scheduled to have spinal surgery for scoliosis, and I’ll be spending a few days in the hospital with her as part of her care team. So, it felt appropriate to celebrate anime doctors.

This is not a ranked list, however. It’s just a listing of the doctors that have stood out to me from anime that I have watched.

Dr. Marcoh

Dr. Marcoh is from Fullmetal Alchemist, and he used to be known as the Crystal Alchemist. He was the leading researcher in the military’s Philosopher’s Stone creation project. He is a kind man but suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and extreme guilt for the actions he took during the Ishvalan war that resulted in the deaths of thousands of Ishvalans. Marcoh deeply cares for others and is patient and forgiving of others… even if he is unable to forgive himself. While Dr. Marcoh may not be able to use his alchemy for combat, he is able to use it for healing. He is also very skilled in medicine.

Dr. Sado (aka Dr. Sane)

In the original Space Battleship Yamato series, Dr. Sado (aka Dr. Sane in Star Blazers) was more of a comedic character that was known for his alcohol consumption, although he had his moments of seriousness, especially when it came to Captain Okita (aka Captain Avatar). In the Space Battleship Yamato reboot, he still drinks his sake, but Dr. Sado is portrayed as a respected surgeon. As the Yamato‘s medical officer, Dr. Sado does a great job of keeping the crew healthy and caring for Captain Okita as he fell ill during the voyage to Iscandar.

Hatori Soma

Hatori Soma is part of the cursed Soma clan in Fruits Basket, and he is one of the family members with the zodiac curse. While part of his job is to wipe the memories of people outside of the family who have seen or know anything related to the curse, he is also an actual doctor. We see Hatori taking care of both Somas and Tohru Honda. He has a good heart, as well as a good bedside manner. He may not be the most emotional of people, but I think this trait suits him well for his profession.

Dr. Tofu

Dr. Tofu is from Ranma 1/2, and he’s the doctor that the Tendo family and Ranma go to see if they get sick or receive an injury. Dr. Tofu is a good medical doctor, and he’s also got some impressive skills as a martial artist. However, he does have one weakness… Kasumi Tendo. Whenever she comes over the Dr. Tofu’s clinic, he becomes extremely nervous and klutzy. Dr. Tofu is a good doctor, but if you see Kasumi walk through the door of the clinic, it’s best to come back and see the good doctor another time.

Tony Tony Chopper

He’s the cute little blue-nosed reindeer from One Piece who serves as the doctor for the Straw Hats. After eating a Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a human hybrid, Chopper first started learning about medicine from Doctor Hiriluk. After Hiriluk passed away, Dr. Kureha continued Chopper’s training. Chopper may be shy when he first meets people, but he’s a good doctor. Unlike Hatori Sohma, who doesn’t show a lot of emotion, Chopper gets very emotional after he becomes attached to someone. While he’s usually able to control his emotions while treating patients, he has a hard time during the Punk Hazard arc when Mocha eats all of the candy that has been used to poison the children. Chopper can’t contain his emotions even while treating her.

Tsunade

Tsunade is one of the three legendary Sannin in Naruto and is renowned for her skills in medical ninjutsu, as well as for her brute strength. Tsunade suffered the painful losses of her younger brother Nawaki and her lover Dan during the Secong Shinobi World War. With these losses, she developed haemophobia and left the village with Dan’s niece, Shizune, as her apprentice. After some serious convincing from Jiraiya and Naruto, Tsunade returns to the Hidden Leaf Village to not only serve as the Fifth Hokage, she also returns to practicing medical ninjutsu. She later takes on both Sakura and Ino as apprentices. The audience first gets a glimpse of Tsunade’s abilities when she performs an extensive operation on Rock Lee that allows him to continue as a shinobi.
