Plot

Black Cat is the story about Train Heartnet and the people that come into his life. It starts out that he is an assassin working for an organization named Chronos. He is cold and merciless, that is until he meets a sweeper named Saya. Saya helps to open Train up and makes him wonder if he truly wants to continue killing.

Train decides to leave the organization and become a sweeper. He begins to travel with two partners, Sven and Eve. They travel for awhile until he must prepare to fight familiar faces from his past life, along with a couple of new foes.

Audio and Visuals

The soundtracks aren't really amazing in the series. I didn't even like the beginning song to each episode, but the ending was ok. The fight scenes had plenty of great background tracks to help make them more exciting, so that's a plus.

The voiceovers were great in the Japanese version. The voiceovers fit each character well. I just recently began watching the show in English, and so far it also looks promising. Train's voice was almost as good as it was in the Japanese version. Almost, lol. So, if you don't like subtitles, you should be fine with the English cast.

The visuals are beautiful. The characters look amazing and the fight scenes were perfect. I would have to say Eve is my favorite to watch when it comes to visuals. She seems to look amazing during the fights, especially when she transforms.

Final Thoughts

The characters were a little rushed when it comes to development. The show skipped around, and sometimes emotions just seemed to appear from nowhere. It wasn't too bad though.

The ending, well, it wasn't great at all. The final fight seemed like a let down. I was expecting so much more, and I couldn't believe it was over with the way it ended. That would be the only real flaw of the story.

Despite the few flaws, I liked Black Cat. If you like action, you'll like this one. It's full of good fighting scenes to say the least.

      Pros: Cowboy Bebop good.
      Cons:
      With excellent animation original story and no fillers its a must see. The two main characters Train an assassin and Eve a bio-weapon are given a chance to become more then what they are with a little help from new friends and each other.
