If you're looking for cool characters and great battles then this manga is highly recommended.
It's really boring and it doesn't have any interesting action. I give it 6 for the nice drawings and main characters (Train and Sven)
If someone rates this title giving 10 than how would he/she rate Berserk/Bleach/ Detective Conan/20-th Century Boys/Monster/Death Note/Gantz (which are better in my opinion)? This manga is entertaining and I enjoyed reading it but the plot is only decent and I had the feeling "I saw that somewhere" if you know what I mean. For me it's on the same level as Naruto - there is nothing new in here but it's served well and in right amounts. In short - worth reading.
It may be quite the typical manga, but at the same time, its unique aspects create an addicting story. I love the characters, the plot development, and the fights. Finish scanlating it!
An excellent shounen jump manga. Ok story, great characters, great battles etc. Must-read manga.
Average but well-made
If you're looking for something particularly innovative, this isn't it. The plot is more or less average shounen, although it gets to the point quite quickly and doesn't bother with suspense much, most obvious secrets are revealed fairly early on. Flashbacks are used liberaly, but they're tasteful and don't particularly interfere with the story. Definitly nothing new in terms of plot or character development. The art is superb, there's nothing to to complain there (very crisp, clean lines, beautiful character designs). It's basically a new look at a fairly average set up. The author has a particular style of story telling which involves going back and forth in time in short bursts and using flashbacks to further explain himself later: sometimes confusing but ulitmately well-written. The characters themselves are entertaining, not particularly deep but still well constructed.
If anything, the plot is a mix of Cowboy Bebop-type "episodes" with a central villain coming in occasionally. There's a resemblance to RK's Kenshin, but Train (the main character) is hardly as philosophical or as conceited, and his naivete is not annoying. He's more like Trigun's Vash, without the emotional bagage...
Over all it's a fun manga. Nothing particularly to remember it by, but it manages to compile some of the best elements of other mangas into a very, very nice package. If you like shounen and you like pretty boys/girls, just read it and enjoy.
the joy of Black Cat...
when I started reading it I was amused enough to keep reading and even look for more during the lulls between releases of what I was really hooked on at the time. as I read more I became more and more impressed; sure it has clichés in it, but it manages to have them and STILL kept me wanting more. considering it's gotten to the point a lot of manga is full of clichés and much of it doesn't keep me interested enough to go ganking scanlations from almost half a dozen scanlation groups to keep up with the latest chapters that says a lot. (I guess after the decades manga has been in existance it's bound to suffer from clichés a bit and if you want to make sure you're not going to get them you'd have to go back to early manga before those clichés were common)
It's funny how people like to make fun of action/adventure based manga and go "Oh it's just a typical [insert stereotypical description] manga". I mean, come on, it's the title's THEME for god's sake. It's for the same exact reason that people who say Death Note is too wordy or plot intensive (and thus boring) are idiots. Or they just want some love from their own kind (i.e. the typical popular-manga hater).
Reminds me of Kenshin (one of the best mangas I've ever read)
I really like this Manga. Just like Anonymous said, it is really addictive. Start reading and you won't be able to stop. But to be honest, I first started reading it and I thought: "The drawings are really good and I like the character design but something is missing." [edit by mod, please don't spoil] Many people I know say that it is bad because at the beginning it resembles the Kenshin manga; for example the main chara's non-killing attitude (and he can get really mad when fighting, still without killing) and the girl who died in his arms (just like Kenshin's wife); but I think it still is really good. A lot of shows resemble Kenshin, so what's your problem? You all watched/read Trigun, right??? Okay, anyway. Even though it's addictive and I love it I still think it's not perfect, so 9 Points :P (for being idealess at the character design and setting but good at drawings, character developement and story line)
KeroVivi, what can i say? it's a good manga, for one, i think it's alot better than hunter x hunter. who knows? maybe hunter x hunter copied black cat. if you read more, than you whould know how much worse hunter x hunter is.
