    This book is not really a novel; it's more classified as a manga. But there is still a great plot to be had. It is about a team of bounty hunters known more formally as 'sweepers' who go about collecting their bounty. Train, the main character, used to be part of a government organizat...

    Comic, manga Black Cat. This is book one out of 13 right now. This one isn't that good but as the story goes on the books get better and better. If you like manga/anime you should really read this. It's a great story, and it's funny. ...

    Definatley one of my favorite series, there's enough action to keep it intresting without being too much drama. Train is an intresting hero with plenty of quirks to keep readers laughing. I also like how the author has a strong main plot, but often breaks away for the side adventures t...

    This started a bit slow for me, but took off quite strong. My first thought was the main characters were going to be a bit 2-dimensional. Soon, though I was drawn into wanting to know the mystery of the Man called the Black Cat. I like the Black Cat character and look forward to findin...

    The art style isn't the best, and we've got someone who *cough* needs some clothes *cough*, AND there is very little direction in the plot, though it does have one. That being said, it's a fun story with endearing characters. From our fun-loving, carefree 'sweeper' with a tortured past...

    This is the story of a pair of bounty hunters, one of which is a former assassin. The characters are all goof-balls, which makes for a fun story. This book starts with two stories that just serve to introduce the main characters and includes a few disposable characters who only appe...

    Following a pair of bounty hunters in a noirish world, Black Cat shows a deft mixing of realistic world building with touches of science-fiction and American comic book style fantasy (fantasy in which unexplained forces are implicitly and explicitly involved, but in which magic is not ...

    A good solid shonen series. There's a lot of gunplay and dead flunkies, but not a lot of blood. If you like heroes with a mysterious past, maybe this one's for you? ...

    The story begins with Train and Sven as sweepers who both have a dark/dangerous/hidden past. Train appeared to be once a member of the Chronos who murder people - sort of like those gangs. He also appeared to be one of the best gunmen of the Chronos. He bears a XIII mark - believed ...

    I read this originally when I was in high school and it was still being published in English for the first time. I'd seen trailers for the anime and it looked really cool so I started buying the manga. I liked it a lot back then. I've changed a lot since high school. There are some ...

    The series started off decent, but then characterization gets tossed out the window. The main character, Train, suddenly has a "n0-kill" policy for no reason in the middle of the series, whereas in previous volumes, he did not, among other things. The other characters became too unlika...

    Black Cat starts off a bit on the predictable side - feared assassin that seems instantly Superior to pretty much anyone in front of him - but does throw in more intrigue in its world-building in some of the later chapters of the first volume. There is enough here to get invested in, m...

    Train left underground organization Chronos to live his life on his own terms - two years later, he's working with his partner Sven as a sweeper. The action scenes are well-choreographed, the art is good, and the plot is easy to follow and (mostly) believable. I love stories about assa...

    OMG, before of anything, this drawings are so beautiful, like really beautiful. In the beginning it's a little stopped, but just like that everything changes and new characters are introduced. I really like it and leaves the sensation of "what's going to happen next?". I can't wait t...
