So the first four episodes I liked for the artwork, storyline, and interesting characters; the second four episodes elevated this series to one of my top 5. The story is now in full swing, the art remains top notch, and the characters remain interesting and are becoming more developed. We see more lighthearted humor in this disc, which gives a nice break to some of the more serious scenes.
Black Cat theme

"What is the cost of redemption for the damned? It is a painful price always. Train's story is like Rurouni Kenshin! They were both powerful assassins! The cost of Kenshin's redemption was the death of his wife Tome, also Train's cost was Saya the girl whom he met and taught him the value of human life then died soon after. It is a wonderful anime full of series dramatic moment, action and funny light-hearted humor, but the theme stands out beautifully within the series. It broke my heart when Saya died early in the story while all the bad guys survived apparently. She was so lovely and full of life; exactly what Train needed to be human again but her death serves as a motive for Train to never kill again. The end is also similar to Rurouni Kenshin when we see Kenshin in the last scene continues the road he chose, also Train goes in his way as a free cat. This series also reminds me of Get Backers specially the relationship between Train and Sven. However, one can not compare this series to Kenshin at any degree. Kenshin is the greatest ever!"

# 07: The Wounded Cat

# 08: The Sweeping Cat
Black Cat, Sven and Eve go after the bounty on Igor Planter, but before they do, they run into an old friend.
This volume packs a wallop in the emotional department, especially in the episode, "The Cat Under Fire." All time seemed to stop during one of its scenes. This is the DVD where things change in the series, both in character and in flow and becomes even more so in line with Kentaro Yabuki's manga.
The humor, mostly coming from Sven, is laugh-out-loud funny. Each character also has their moment under the spotlight to give their witty observation of the situation or an outlandish complaint to make you chuckle.
The "manga moments" return in this DVD, moments where the characters go from being drawn standard anime style to very cartoony to emphasize an emotion then back to normal again.
Groundwork for further storytelling was also laid in this volume while a couple other threads were wrapped up.
I can't wait to see what happens next.
