Black Cat, Volume 12 Reviews
Man, I have loved Kentaro Yabuki’s “Black Cat” series ever since I picked up the first volume and this series just continues to get better and better with each passing volume! “Black Cat Volume 12: the New Weapon” is no exception to this as we finally learn more about Dr. Tearju and her relationship with her creation, Eve!In order to change Train from his child form to his normal adult form, Train, Sven and Eve travel to find Dr. Tearju, who might be the only person who knows how to change Train back to normal due to her formally working on nanotechnology for Torneo in the past. Also, it turns out that Dr. Tearju was responsible for creating Eve and this may lead to Eve finding out more about her creation. Unfortunately, the Apostles of the Stars started attacking Sven, Eve and Dr. Tearju in order to force Dr. Tearju to join their team and create more nanotechnology for them.Will the Apostles of the Stars finally get Dr. Tearju and will Train change back to normal?Wow! This volume was just as exciting and interesting as the previous volume! I loved the way that Kentaro Yabuki explored Dr. Tearju’s character as I have been wondering ever since I read the first volume about Eve’s creator and what she was like as a character. I like the fact that Dr. Tearju is a kindhearted character who was willing to help Train through his predicament and it was also interesting in seeing her relationship with Eve. I also loved the side story about Kyoko trying to redeem herself in the eyes of Chronos since it showed how much her character is progressing and it would be interesting to see what direction Kentaro Yabuki will take Kyoko in the next few volumes. Kentaro Yabuki’s artwork is as usual spectacular as the characters look realistic yet cute and I have always admired the way that Kentaro Yabuki drew their facial expressions as they really capture the emotions that the characters feel during certain situations such as showing fear when the Apostles of the Stars shows up and happiness when they reunited with each other.Even though this volume is not as violent as the previous volumes, there are some intense moments in this volume such as the Apostles of the Stars trying to kidnap Dr. Tearju and threatening to kill Eve and Sven. These moments might worry some readers who do not like the idea about a beloved character getting threatened with death or the fact that some vicious strangers invade your house in the middle of the night.Overall, “Black Cat Volume 12: The New Weapon” is a brilliant volume that really explored Eve’s back story while providing a satisfying conclusion to Train’s story arc of being trapped in a smaller body.Review is also on: Rabbit Ears Book Blog
Okay, I really, really, really like the railgun. I think it is a perfect fit for Train. He managed to turn himself back in order to come save the professor, Sven, and Eve. Though I think Sven and Eve were doing a fantastic job already, but they could always use the help. Train is finally going to tell them about his past with Cronus, Creed, and Saya. It is about time. Sven has been wonder what his deal has been for the past two and half years. You are a very patient man Sven.
Train left underground organization Chronos to live his life on his own terms - two years later, he's working with his partner Sven as a sweeper. The action scenes are well-choreographed, the art is good, and the plot is easy to follow and (mostly) believable.I didn't like this volume as much, because although it was cool to meet Eve's creator, Train magically solved the whole situation and none of it really felt "earned", so to speak. Eve stepping in was pretty cool, but I wish Dr. Tearju could have been a little more exciting herself. Again, the women in this series are mostly side characters and rarely do much more (so far, at least).Lots of kick-butt action, though... fun to read, even if it required more suspension of disbelief than usual.
It's great to get back into this series again; I laughed out loud several times. However I wasn't very impressed with the resolution of Train's problem.
One of my favorite all time mangas.
We get to meet Eve's creator, which puts Sven's hat in danger..But they aren't the only one's after a meeting.
Watching Train try and get himself back to normal is adorable and what a comeback... Phew!
