Great in the beginning. Drags towards the end. Still good.

It starts off pretty dark but it lightens up a lot later on. Lot's of fighting, much of it over the top. A bit pushy with the morals at times and later it seems to be nothing but endless/pointless fighting. Still, it finishes quite nicely. If you like Trigun, Bleach or Dragonball, this should be a pretty enjoyable read.

One of the better action-type manga out. Yeah, manga readers who've read a lot may be upset with some "reused" concepts from kenshin, etc, however it's definately worth a read. Better than everything creative so kindly listed as "better".

If you enjoy reading bleach manga and/or naruto you'll definately like Black Cat as well.

You can't put this in the same category as Dragonball since it's not as terrible.

Personally I haven't found many Shounen series that jumped out at me. This Shounen Jump series I think is more refreshing. The first bounty hunter themed anime I saw was Cowboy Bebop. Black Cat is quite a big better than that. The characters were all interesting, especially the Chronos characters and the Apostle of the Stars.

The story starts a bit differently in the manga than in the anime as the manga starts when Train is already teamed up with Sven as opposed to where the anime starts off before Train discards his "Black Cat" title.

I thought the anime background music was decent but not top notch, and I find Japanese voice portray the characters better than dubs. This is just my preference though. I'm also studying Japanese so hearing the seiyuus somewhat works as translation study for me.

Everyone's taste is different so best to check out a few chapters or episodes and se if it's your style.

A little boring times but still an amazing series

The manga reminded me a lot about Trigun

It was really fun. There were a few fight scenes where you hope that it end quickly, but the last 10 chapters were amazing

I was thinking of giving it an 8.3 but the ending made it a 9.3

[edit by mod,possible spoiler.. reveals ending strat]
this was one of the most fun manga's i've read in a while. i liked it for the fact that it had an interesting story that got you interested and while at the same time retaining its fun humorous atmosphere. also i liked it for the fact that unlike a lot of action manga's out there the main character was so skilled and powerful. most other manga's have the hero gain some incredible power or amazing skill to make him a match for the final villain, whereas in black cat train was head and shoulders above the competition and the villain was the one who had to power up to stand a chance. it has its cliches and similarities to other manga's of a similar type but it does it so well you can't help but let it be because it's still fun to read. in my completely biased opinion i would give it a 10+, but in my more objective opinion it probably deserves a 7.5. thus i balance the my average in its favor.

No, it won't win any prizes. Nor is it original or inspiring.
But what you get is good clean fun, great action, incredibly cute girls and impressive character artwork in general.
Read this if you want brainless fun, and you won't be disappointed.
