Train Heartnet, also known as "Black Cat," was an infamous assassin for a secret organization called Chronos...until he abandoned that cold-blooded existence to live on his own terms as an easygoing bounty hunter. But is Train's past as far behind him as he thinks?

why is that I feel towards the end, the deus ex machina plot suddenly like, thrown here and there? I've watched the anime and tried to read the manga because I found the anime interesting (and also because I remember wrongly, I thought the anime only reached some point in manga...) tho.
I like Black Cat cause it used a pretty interesting set-up where the main chara is not a useless brat at the start, and I like Train's heavy background pretty much. While all the element feels pretty nice along the way, but I felt that towards the end, it's so... yeah, dunno.
Anyway, it's still good, ...especially if you haven't read too much shounen.
My Favourite Manga Ever
How many of Shounen you have ever read have a protagonist with a gun? I guess not so many compared to those with a sword, especially manga in Black Cat's era.
Black Cat, surely, is a must-read in my opinion. It was one of the first manga (and Shounen's) I've ever read. It is an entertaining series with beautiful art. The characters have their own backgrounds, which are wisely presented; their behaviours and feelings are also well expressed as the story progresses. The story and the theme are also great. The end is beautifully told. I swear I can't find anything better than this as a well organised and planned manga. It may seem typical and common, but if you read and think carefully, it actually is not that typical.
One more thing I like about it is that the manga doesn't contain too much nudity or Fan Service scenes which usually ruin a good story. This is why I'm surprised--and disappointed--when I see To Love Ru for the first time.
I usually mention to it as 'a masterpiece of Yabuki Kentaro before he grows old and becomes... a bit too obsessed with s*x'
Say I overrated it as you please; I just can't help praising the series.

I love this series cuz it was the first manga I've ever read... I loved it!! It's really funny... Special mention for Jenos Hazard........soooooooooo cool!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jenos rulez!!!
I thought this was just a mediocre series. Nothing really stood out from other Shounen series. Also, the characters don't have enough development. Except for the 3 main characters, I didn't really know anything about any of the others, which didn't draw me into the story.
The art is great the story so-so just another shounen manga.
There is nothing wrong with being generic
Having seen the complaints about this series I think they're nonsense. I often find myself wanting to read a generic shounen story. This one is a great example of that. While these stories will never find a place as the Best story ever or anything they are still quite entertaining.
Pretty good although a little repetitive
I thought this was a great shonen series that had an original and entertaining plotline. The length of the series may be daunting but I found myself eating through chapters, although I did tend to forget minor details due to the slight repetetiveness
im sad. i had this on hold for like a year and never read the last chapters. im so sad. i hope there will be a sequel. i think this deserves better than what i gave it but there were a lot of useless chapters in the middle and the last part seemed to drag on a bit
I thought it was great, kind of predictable but it was still entertaining. Good art, characters and story and never boring. =)
By far, Kentaro-sensei's Best work.
First series I picked up by Yabuki Kentaro, I was impressed with the art, storyline, character development, and progression. I am still waiting for a sequel, so I can see more badass train and Eve. However, I think that is a bit of a stretch.....PLEASE COME BACK.
