Just because. :P

Anyway, here's where you can discuss all you want on the manga Black Cat. For those who aren't aware of it, Black Cat is about a young man called Train Heartnett, who used to be part of an assasination group called Chronos.
Due to certain events, *which will be explained bit by bit, by the mangaka* he leaves his place as a Chronos Number, and continues his living as a Sweeper alongside his partner, Sven Vollified.

The manga has about 20 volumes, and is already finished. You can download them off lurk. *God bless Lurk* The mangaka, Kentaro Yabuki, has indeed expressed wanting to create a second part of Black Cat.

Which I hope he will.

He didn't give the characters much developments. Which is quite sad, since the characters are frikkin lovable. >[ Anyway, I'm hopnig Yabuki does continue. The ending of Black Cat was most definitely somehow mroe of an opening to another beginning, really. Alot of characters still needed their time in the lime light, while many things still needed to be explained.

Anyway, here's to hoping.

Anyhow, discuss away! Remember not to spoil recent chapters/volumes. I know a few people still somewhere in the middle of the manga. XD

Oh, I created this thread since AYM wanted to discuss stuff ^_^

Have you? :amuse XD

So what are your thought now it's over? O_O

Someone told me that a novel was released, but he didn't think it was written by Yabuki. T_T I'm still hoping to see more of the under-rated characters...[br]Posted at: April 27, 2006, 02:24:12 AM_________________________________________________Extra chapter of Eve after chapter 185. ^_^

Re: Black Cat Manga Discussion Thread

this manga was okay for me. i had fun relating the characters in this manga to manga characters while reading it. janus's technique is kinda similar to kazuki of getbackers. train is too much like spike of cowboy bebop and so is his partner to spike's partner. so for me, balck cat is amusing and a fair read.

Re: Black Cat Manga Discussion Thread

Still meandering my way through Black Cat, I'm afraid. I'm on volume 10 now, but it's sort of one of these manga I'm just reading every now and then when I have nothing else to do. But I did download the rest of the series and have them all on my drive ^^

Re: Black Cat Manga Discussion Thread

Yeah~, Black Cat was featured in Shounen Jump indeed, but i think for Black Cat 2 to happen, we'll at least have to wait for To Love-Ru to end ( but don't worry, that doesn't like a series that'll drag on very long, even though it's really popular and funny ) :p

Btw, Kyoko was featured in a recent TLR chapter, on tv they had a new program: "SUPER-HOT MAGICAL GIRL KYOKO! SOLVING ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS BY BURNING THEM!" ~~<3[br]Posted on: October 13, 2006, 07:18:31 PM_________________________________________________

Re: Black Cat Manga Discussion Thread

It has a lot of similarities to one of my favorite mangas, and I like the type of heroes like Train, so I enjoyed this manga. But I really felt so much more could have been said regarding the Chronos Numbers. They really could make another major arc concerning them. I hope the author goes back to this manga.
