Amazing Anime/Manga

I'm simply stunned at how good this stuff is. I mean...my god...i haven't seen stuff this good in awhile. I've completed the anime and a friend of mine has lent me the first few volumes of it.


Since it's late. I'll simply post a wikipedia link to it and go off to bed and encourage people to watch this.


The story centers on a man named Train Heartnet who withdrew from an elite group of assassins called the Toki no Bannin (????; the Chronos Numbers) to become a Sweeper (a bounty hunter).

In Train's world, there is a secret organization, Chronos, that rules one third of the world's economy through underground control of almost every kind of business. To maintain the balance of the world, Chronos is essential, and therefore, there is the need to have people to protect Chronos. Besides all normal erasers, there are special elite assassins with Orichalcum-made weapons called the Chrono Numbers. Chrono Numbers have their numbers engraved on their body and their weapon. There were twelve total Chrono Numbers, but when Train Heartnet, an unsurpassable shooter, decided to join Chronos in their cause, the number XIII was founded. No one that was targeted by Train Heartnet, also known as Black Cat, for bringing "bad luck", and his extremely quick movements and attacks, ever survived. The name Black Cat was the most feared among assassins.

His only objective was "to be the best". In one of his missions, he had to kill a target, but the target's child was at the scene. Train, recalling his childhood trauma, could not kill the target in front of his child, leading to him being shot by the target's bodyguard.
"Therefore there is not anything which returns to nothing, but all things return dissolved into their elements."
