A rogue assassin named Black Cat, real name Train Heartnet, finds himself being chased by the others of Chronos, his former organization. While dealing with the simple fact of catching enough criminals with bounties to feed himself and his partner, Sven, he meets the renowned thief Rinslet, who proposes a deal: he can capture a large crime boss named Torneo, while she sneaks in and steals his research. However, she doesn't tell them the details of the mission, and it could prove fatal for Sven!

Review by

Not bad... started off a little more episodic than I like my Manga to be. It has some good lines and characters but nothing amazing really stood out.
