Black Cat is a manga by Yabuki Kentaro, and spans 20 volumes. The manga is not licenced yet.
Anyone interested in exchanging thoughts regarding this awesome piece?

Black Cat is about an ex-assassin dubbed Black Cat with the number XIII tattoed on his chest. Black Cat a.k.a. Train Heartnet left a secret society named Chronos after an event that happened while he was in. Now he's travels around with his partner Sven Vollfied as sweepers (the term in the series for a bounty hunter). While conducting their regular sweeping business they take on a girl with nanomachine transforming abilities named Eve, and Train's old partner Creed tries to take over the world. (Source: thedbarchives.)

Years of Released: 2000

Summary
Train Heartnet, also known as "Black Cat," used to be an infamous assassin for the secret organization Chronos. That is, until he abandoned his post as a cold-blooded killer and went to live on his own terms as an easygoing bounty hunter. But is Train's past as far behind him as he thinks?

I read the first 5 volumes (I really need to try to finish it some day).

Pros- The two main male protagonist. Especially Train
Cons- I don't really like any of the female characters. Now I'm not sure why, just something doesn't sit well with the way they are written for me.

@Kirara: I agree regarding the female characters... at least where Eve and "thingy" are concerned. Forgot her name, she's made such an impression on me. tongue.gif Seriously, forgot her name... Rinslet! That's her. Sometimes they are okay, but then they do something or say something and it throws me for a loop again. The rest of the lady cast I more than like. Kyoko for example. biggrin.gif Gotta love her and her fiery elemental powers. (Roy's daughter to a T - flirt and fire-snapper)


@Celestial Fangirl: Check out the first link underneath the summary. XD It's got a few Black Cat galleries and the ones you need are titled: [Train], [Train & Sven], [Jenos], [Charden & Kyoko] and last but not least, [Creed]. *_____*

*_* Man...Train, Charden and Jenos are really hot...And Creed has some extremely hot moments as well wub.gif Sven isn't bad at all either.

What is the relationship between Kyoko and Charden?

You know I'm seriously thinking about reading it laugh.gif What can I say? A recommendation from you and all those hot guys...I think I'll see about those scanlations tongue.gif

biggrin.gif Great. My Sis won't read read it because it reminds her too much of Zombie Powder which she adored. Plus, she says the art's too pretty for a shonen manga. She doesn't like pretty characters. tongue.gif My Brother's just way too slow when it comes to reading up on things. He wants to but it'll take ages that way.

This way I'll have people to talk to about Black Cat without having to listen to my Sister's ranting! smile.gif

Muhuhuhu, it's all about the guys now! X3 (Of course there are more lovely bishounen to ogle at. They're hidden in the artbook section: the one you should really keep an eye out for is the little dude with spiky blue hair. He's always wearing bandages around his head and walks around in a dress... Still, a bishounen in all its glory~)

Charden and Kyoko, let's see. I haven't been able to find out much about their history together, but throughout the manga, they've been [almost] inseparable. The relationship they've got going is more brother/sister like than anything else in my opinion. Kyoko is a bubbly, innocent-looking teenager and pretty naive when it comes to certain things. Charden has this protective air around him regarding her. I think he sees her as his charge because of her innocent nature and has come to love her in his own way. What way that entails you'll have to judge for yourself though. XD READ~

What is your favorite character? I really like Train and Eve!! I also like Sephira, *Jonus, Kyoko (I started liking her when she had her crush on Train), and others too. Thunderhead is funny too, Sven is really not interesting me that much. I also like no. X, *forgot his name, he's too funny! With his changing skills and all!
note:How do you pronounce Sven? It's been iretating(can't spell) me.

Train looks like he's 5!

He looks more like a dweeb.


OT: Does ANYBODY know when the anime is coming out? I heard it was somewhen in fall. It's really hard to find pics of Black Cat when the anime haven't come out yet. sad.gif

My favorite character is Train, closely followed by Kyoko. I don't care much for them as couple though. biggrin.gif But really, I have trouble picking out characters I like better than the rest because they all have their individual charms which makes them special and likeable in my eyes. The only ones I'm not too fond of are Rinslet and Eve. Sorry, MasterKris. biggrin.gif;;

The ones I've been looking out for were Train & Sven (love partnerships to death), the Cerberus gang (more partnership*), No.I & No.II, Charden & Kyoko.

*spoiler!alert. Leave it to me to like a gang right before one of the members get demolished by the opposition... It was a sad event though.

No.X is called Xiaou Li if I'm not mistaken. A manga wouldn't be much of one if it didn't feature a local Asian pretty boy. tongue.gif

Sven? I'd guess you pronounce it the way you spell it? S-ven. To be honest, I can't find another way to pronounce it. blink.gif



OT: Nope. All I know if that it's airing this fall which isn't any news to anyone. tongue.gif

Well, everyone has their own options about characters. I just like Eve too much!! biggrin.gif She's sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo kawaii!! I really like the way Train calls Eve, Little Princess.(I really luved it when Sephira called Eve the same way!!) I don't like Rinslet either, she's too........weird... ph34r.gif

I also like the relationship of Charden & Kyoko too!! It's so funny! It seems like Kyoko is the only Japanese girl around. I luv her 'positive about everything' personality!! With her fire power, she's like Roy's daughter!! laugh.gif

Mabye Sven is pronounce with a silent S?? I don't know...I pronounce it S-ven too... I just have to see the anime to figure out how to prounce Sven...

TRAIN ROCKS!!!!!!!!

Train and Ed are both cat-like, mostly Train though. Never mind, Al is mostly cat person. Mabye Al will pick up Train and put it in his armor!! laugh.gif
One greatest difference between Train and Ed is that Train LOVES milk and Ed HATES milk.

Agreed, to each their own. biggrin.gif

Roy's daughter, that's what I thought too. Dark hair, fire elemental - perfect fit. tongue.gif

A silent S? Hm, I'm not sue but my guess is that the mangaka made his character German. His surname sure make it seem like that. And as far as I know, Sven is pronounced S-ven with a clear 's' and 'vvv'. But I guess it's up to the voice actors to clear up that particular matter. biggrin.gif

Black Cat was a total favourite of mine and a total addict at a point before I got to the end of the third volume that was scanlated by Toriyama world, because, at the time, I knew no other place to download from... And,... Yeah... Then there was nothing. tongue.gif Passions cooled down a bit, I guess, but I think I have quite some catching up to do since I already have most (if not all) of Volume 16.

Train is absolutely one of the greatest characters I have read about. happy.gif His cat-ish behaviour makes me laugh for so long at times. He makes faces that could match even Ed's! Lol... Well, maybe not THAT good (lol), but still really darn close to it. wink.gif

biggrin.gif That's the page I was talking about. It could also be found in the link I provided in the first post of this thread. And I'm pretty surprised about the beauty of the artwork. I had expected quite a bit less... So I'm very relieved! smile.gif

Winry and Saya, huh? Sounds like it might work pretty well. laugh.gif Creed will be played by the guy (Miki) who did Tsuzuki from Yami no Matsuei and Yoji from Weiss Kreuz. Hmmmm~

Hello!

I'm new here, but I absolutely love Balckcat!
I'm at the 14th volume and can't wait for the 15th to come out at the end of September...(I read it in French).

Are you sure there are 20 volumes?
Because I saw different numbers of voulmes so I never really knew which of them was correct (21, 22 and 19...)... happy.gif

Well... there's 20 volume of manga... 2 volume of books(as in just words and few occasional drawings, story a tiny bit different from manga), and 3 CD dramas(All happen after the manga series... but the 1st two CDs are basically 3 main character talking about their past adventure and 3rd one being original story).

Oh and there's also that book with drawings and info about characters, stroy, and etc.

As for Svan's name... If u want to know the real translation, you could find an old cowboy movie(i think that's what it was...) that the name came from. I forgot the name of the movie but it's one of the author's favorite movie... It think it was on the 1st or 2nd volume where the author talks about how he named the main characters.
