Black Cat is a popular anime show that aired from 2005 to 2006 on the Animax channel. It is based on a manga series written and illustrated by Kentaro Yabuki. The show centers around the life of a skilled assassin named Train Heartnet, also known as the Black Cat. The plot follows Train as he abandons his life as a top assassin and joins a group of bounty hunters called Sweepers.

Takahiro Sakurai is the voice actor for Train Heartnet, who is the main protagonist of the show. Train is a skilled and deadly assassin who works for a secret organization called Chronos. He is known as the Black Cat due to the shape of the tattoo on his chest. Train is a quiet and enigmatic person who keeps to himself but is fiercely loyal to those he considers friends. The character has been portrayed very well by Sakurai, who manages to capture the complex and brooding nature of the character.

Keiji Fujiwara is the voice actor for Sven Vollfied, a Sweeper who teams up with Train after a chance encounter. Sven is a down-on-his-luck bounty hunter who has an interesting device called an "imaginary number." It allows him to see a few seconds into the future, giving him an edge in combat. Sven is a kind and loyal character who serves as a good foil to Train's stoic nature. Fujiwara does a great job of bringing out the kindness and humor in Sven.

Hideyuki Hori is the voice actor for Creed Diskenth, the main antagonist of the show. Creed is a former member of Chronos who becomes obsessed with Train and uses his abilities to create chaos and destruction. Hori does an excellent job of portraying the egotistical and delusional Creed, who believes that he is the only one worthy of Train's attention.

Megumi Toyoguchi is the voice actor for Saya Minatsuki, a kind-hearted nurse who befriends Train early in the show. Saya is a bright and optimistic character who is often the voice of reason in the chaotic world of Black Cat. Toyoguchi does a great job of bringing out the warmth and compassion of Saya.

Yukana is the voice actor for Eve, a young girl who is engineered to be a living weapon by a secret organization called the Apostles of the Star. Eve is a stoic and emotionless character who has a lot of hidden potential. Yukana captures the cold and calculating nature of Eve very well, making her a memorable part of the show.

Misato Fukuen is the voice actor for Rinslet Walker, a wealthy and glamorous Sweeper who often works with Sven and Train. Rinslet is a cunning and manipulative character who uses her charm and connections to get what she wants. Fukuen does a great job of portraying the scheming and sassy Rinslet.

Kikuko Inoue is the voice actor for Sephiria Arks, the leader of Chronos who is tasked with bringing Train back to the organization. Sephiria is a stern and serious character who is often at odds with Train. Inoue does a great job of portraying the no-nonsense Sephiria.

Shinichiro Miki is the voice actor for Belze Rochefort, a deadly assassin who works for Creed. Belze is a fierce and merciless fighter who has a vendetta against Train. Miki does a great job of portraying the sinister and ruthless Belze.

Mitsuki Saiga is the voice actor for Lin Xiaoli, a Sweeper who often works with Sven and Train. Lin is a skilled fighter who has a tragic backstory that is slowly revealed throughout the show. Saiga does a great job of portraying the stoic and mysterious Lin.

Overall, Black Cat is a great anime show that has a lot of action, humor, and heart. The characters are well-realized and the voice acting is top-notch. The show also has an interesting storyline that keeps the viewer engaged from beginning to end.
