Dr.STOЯKS

コウノドリ   產科醫鴻鳥   고우노도리

75 min × 2 eps / 60 min × 8 eps|10 episodes

Giving birth is not an illness. So naturally, it is not covered by standard medical insurance. People who work in maternity wards don’t treat injuries or cure disease. In fact, a professional doctor, an obstetrician, need not be present at a childbirth. But when complications arise, giving birth can become a life-or-death matter. Sakura Konotori lost his mother at his own birth and, as a result, grew up in an orphanage. Now he works as an obstetrician fueled by a deep love and yearning to “celebrate each and every baby that comes into the world”. But he is also something of a mystery, leading another life as a concert pianist who goes by the nickname “Baby” and plays with a passion that borders on brilliance. A delicate and realistic portrayal about the front lines of childbirth, Storks delivers a heartwarming drama that reflects upon the meaning and miracle of life.

But an evil entity called Bugdeth has come to Earth seeking to create negative energy by causing bugs in the programs which will ultimately allow him to materialize in our world. Soon his minions, the Bug Bites, are turning the Promin into bugs in the system called “Bugmin.” These Bugmin wreak havoc and cause mischief. Suddenly people’s cars won’t stop, or they can’t lock their door!
Luckily, the King of a distant world has sent his son “Wanda” (the space dog?) to save Earth from Bugdeth, but he’ll need to find some help first. That is when Yuto, our reluctant hero appears.
Now Wanda must convince Yuto to help him capture and dubug the Bugmin using the two key items for such a purpose: a special flashlight and camera. Once Yuto is on board they can together capture and clean Bugmin to gain access to that Promin’s special abilities, called “Kamiwaza,” to fight other Bugmin!
