Creed and the Apostles of the Stars have been thoroughly routed and defeated by the combined efforts of the Sweeper’s
The final dvd of Black Cat is what I like to call a Royal Rumble volume. By that, I mean that most of the characters that have appeared in the show come together in one last giant climactic battle with a winner take the world outcome. The characters in Black Cat are written extremely well. Even Creed got a chance to show a sane side to his personality last volume! The storylines and personalities of the cast run a long way deeper than most Shonen Jump titles. You would think it would be really exciting to see the final battle but there’s one aspect of this anime that has always held it back from being a great show: the inconsistent animation quality. During most of the battle scenes, Gonzo really wimps out and presents them as still frames with very little motion, if at all. This has been a problem throughout the entire run. If you’re not going to show action in an action show, then don’t even bother making it! I mean, at least shake the camera or something on the still shots! Or insert manga pages. While the barely adequate battle sequences weaken the show, I still liked Black Cat a lot and definitely recommend it.
My Rating: B+
