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

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

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.

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.
