Train Heartnet is known as the Black Cat for his quick reactions to attacks and his title as Number Thirteen as member of the secret society Chronos. He is an unbeatable master gunman, a cold and unfeeling killer until he meets Saya, a bounty hunter, or “sweeper”. She teaches him the value of a human life, and that one should live in order to repent for one’s mistakes rather than die because of them. Through her, Train learns to love and care for other people as he too becomes a sweeper and travels with his partner Sven and the mysterious girl Eve. (Anime News Network)

It was 2008 and I had just finished watching the Darker Than Black anime which later became one of my favorites. When had an intense need to look for another anime series that would be just as great or maybe even more so. The parameter was set and was really in the mood for some action and a darker take in anime. A stark contrast to what currently has my attention in an anime series which is comedy and slice of life. Still at that time was looking for some action maybe some shounen. Black Cat came across and it was Shounen Jump anime. I wasn’t sure how good it would turn out but once I saw a few episodes knew this was one phenomenal anime. The animation was so incredibly good but even the story. The characters too had their own subtle unique traits that made you truly care about them and just the overall story. It was quite the luck that FUNimation released a SAVE Edition of Black Cat which made me getting Black Cat one of my all time anime series favorites very affordable.
Black Cat is all about, Train Heartnet, an assassin known as Black Cat that has always completed his assigned list of kills until he meets a woman bounty hunter named, Saya, who he deeply begins to care for who teaches him that if his heart is not in killing he shouldn’t try to force himself. He begins to change his life around but because of his new decision his old life brings danger to his new one. Still even in such a dark world he lives in, he eventually meets his new family.
One of the top reasons will recommend this series to anime fans is due to the fact that the anime series has such a good soundtrack with the Opening Theme Song and Ending Theme Songs. Voice acting is very fitted to the characters in the English Dub in the voicing.
If you’re an anime fan that likes anime with substance and good animation and good story such as Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion then Black Cat is a good choice. The series is very affordable so that’s a plus! A very good investment for anime watchers!
