I love this series. There's something about having ex-assassins on board that thrills me. However, Train isn't your usual assassin stereotype- he's screwy and lovable. Train may be perfect but his personality makes up for it. As you keep reading, it all gets better and better, there's a secret organization that you grow to like, another group that's just fascinating, and a fast paced plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

I just purchased Volumes one and two of Black Cat, I needed new reading material. I picked it up and I couldn't stop reading! The twists and plots are AWESOME! The characters are great! I may be a sucker for the gunslinger stories but I got to say this one tottaly blows the others I've read out of the water! I think it's a must read!

Black Cat is one of the best shows ive ever watch it is very well ploted and there wasn't much fillers in this series it was mostly kept on track of the story and the people who made it should give them selfs a pat on the back for making such a excellent show

I am a huge fan of the Black Cat anime, so obviously I was excited when I found out there was a manga (which predates the anime, I know). The manga is full of action scenes where Train Heartnet (the main character) is completley kick butt, but the story will turn around to be absolutely hilarious. I love the story, and the bad guys are great. I strongly recommend this manga for anime and manga lovers alike!

Black Cat is probably my favorite shonen manga of all time! I absolutely love the story and characters! And the artwork is great! I love this series, and I recommend it to all fans of the 'shonen' genre!

At first I watched the anime first....... which was great. Then I startes reading the manga on my cellphone im hooked. I've pretty much used all of my data reading this wonderful manga. I truly aspire to one day write and draw a book series like this one. Although this couldnt be copied its one of a kind. I just which I had enough to buy every single one, unfortunately i'm like broke........ no cash on me. Train Heartnet is totally wicked.

Black Cat is really cool. Its sort of violent (gun fights, dripping blood) but very well drawn with an interesting plot. The only bad thing is here in the States, only the first volume is out!

This is a very good one to pick up. Action, comedy, superhuman abilites, and well drawn characters. If you don't like any of those things, you'll still like it XP. I can't wait to get a hold of the next volume.

Train is the Black Cat.Now if your thinking Train is some masked vigilante your wrong!Train is a sweeper along with his partner Sven.Train is trying to forget his past but as Train and Sven purse each new bounty their is some kind of reminder trying to bring Train back into his past as the Black Cat!
