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.

It was an ok read with some good action scenes, but it really annoyed me that the main character is a freaking assassin and won't KILL anybody!! If I got paid $1 for every time I wanted to smash my computer when he went on one of his "I won't kill because of blah blah" I'd be rich. Other than that I'd recommend it to any shonen fans

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.

This is truely one of the best manga ever created. But its ending decreased it from a 9 to a 10. Dont get me wrong- its an ending yet not a fitting on for such a great manga

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.
