Despite a reputation as a brusque and ill-mannered man, Kenichi Tottori, a.k.a. “Dolittle” is also a brilliant veterinarian with the habit of asserting that “Veterinary practice is a business.” Outwardly, he is quick to excoriate pet owners for their utter lack of understanding and careless treatment of their pets, but invariably finds himself rescuing not only the “voiceless animals” whose pain and anguish he deeply understands, but even heals the spiritual afflictions of their owners. The result is a moving drama that brings into bold relief the issues that pet owners and veterinarians face, and evoking the sacred importance of life.
「수의는 비지니스」란 말이 버릇인 돗토리 켄이치. 일명 두리틀이 라고 불리는 그는 거친 입담으로 돈과 동물주인에게 악덕 민완수의 사라고 알려져있다. 동물주인의 지식과 주의가 부족해 병과 상처를 입으면서 괴로움을 알리지 못하는 말없는 동물들을 구할뿐만 아니 라 문제를 안고 있는 동물주인들의 마음까지도 깨끗하게 치료해가 는 감동작이다. 동물들과 맞선 수의사라는 직업을 통해 생명의 소 중함을 물으며 서로가 안고 있는 문제, 고민, 갈등을 부각시켜간다.
老把「獸醫就是門生意」當口頭禪、外加口無遮攔、小氣又對飼主嚴苛的鳥取健一;大家都叫他「杜立德」,是個風評爲沒有美德但醫術高超的獸醫。他不只是拯救那些因為飼主的疏忽或知識不足,而生病受傷卻無法表達痛苦的小動物們,他連那些各懷問題煩惱的飼主,也都不吝嗇的給予心靈的“治療”。透過獸醫這個職業,我們更加的了解生命的意義和重要,以及各懷的問題、煩惱及矛盾。

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.
