There is now an official account for anime and manga series Black Cat on Twitter. This is due to the fact that the show is available to stream on U-Next. The account will release information in regards to the series. So far, though, it’s simply retweeting articles about the Twitter account. [Thanks, Dengeki Online!]
In order to watch the series on U-Next, you have to have an account and reside in Japan. If people in countries like the United States wish to stream Black Cat, it is available on Crunchyroll. Since the original manga ended in 2004 and the anime series ended in 2006, there’s really not much new information about it that fans don’t already know. The sudden revival of the IP caused some to wonder if this is just a fan account. But Gonzo, which was the animation studio, assures everyone that it’s real and official.
Black Cat was written and illustrated by Kentaro Yabuki, who would later go on to illustrate for To Love Ru, as well as create Ayakashi Triangle. It follows the story of former assassin, Train Heartnet. He works as a bounty hunter with his partner Sven and a bio-weapon named Eve. But his past as an assassin catches up to him in the form of Creed, his former partner. The anime had many differences from the original manga, including more screentime for certain characters and an alternate ending.
Black Cat is available for streaming on services like Crunchyroll and U-Next. The Black Cat Twitter will likely Tweet about trivia from the production of the anime.
