Black Cat (2005)

Black Cat (Japanese: ブラックキャット Hepburn: Burakku Kyatto?) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kentaro Yabuki. It was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine from July 2000 to June 2004, with the chapters collected into twenty tankōbon volumes by Shueisha. The story centers on an elite assassin named Train Heartnet who withdrew from an international group of peacekeepers called the Chronos Numbers to become a bounty hunter.

The series was adapted into a twenty-four episode anime series by Gonzo studio, which originally aired on Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) channel from October 2005 to March 2006.

The following firearms were seen in the anime television series Black Cat:



Train Heartnet A.K.A. Chronos Number XIII "Black Cat" wields the gun Hades, an ornate .45 caliber top-break revolver made of fictional Orichalcum metal. The gun's design mixes double action revolver and semi-automatic pistol designs, as evidenced by the barrel. Black Cat uses this revolver with extreme accuracy; and because of the gun's super tough construction, he also uses it as an active melee weapon to pistol whip enemies with, as well as block sword blades and even bullets.

A Black Cat imitator, who's real name is Woodney, wields a custom stainless M1917 Revolver as his "Chronos" weapon. The gun seems to be a mixture of both S&W and Colt M1917 designs.

Sven unleashes a flashbang via his Suitcase Gun, and Black Cat shoots the bodyguards "MP5s" out of their hands. Note the lack of a paddle release, confirming them as HK94s. The charging handle of the foremost HK94 is missing, must have been shot off by Black Cat.

Chronos Number XI Beluga J. Heard wields an enormous Bazooka-shaped rocket launcher named "Verethraghna" as his weapon. The launcher fires a massive artillery shell-like projectile, and can be used as a pummeling weapon with its hammer shaped counterbalance weight.
