What they say about Black Cat

The opening episodes of Black Cat introduce an interesting bunch of characters and given them a chance to show off a little, while giving you enough information to see where the story is going without really getting too meaty. There’s a reasonable amount of light comedy thrown in as well (usually around Sven’s permanent lack of cash) that helps to keep a fun atmosphere about the story. The end result is a show that’s going in an interesting direction and is simply fun to watch, and that makes it one that’s worth keeping an eye on.
