Train Heartnett teams up with Sven and the bio weapon Eve to track down criminal Gyonza Rujike who Sven arrested back when he was a special agent. They think he is wanting the bottle which intensifies a person's Tao if it is used as it is spirit water. Gionza is now after Sven as a revenge attack. The two million in gold reward is enough to make the Black Cat want in.

Charlie and Kyoko are organising an operation, but their affiliation with a certain murderer brings them into contact with Train and Sven. Sven creates a lure to flush out Gyonza, which has humorous consequences in store for Sven and the others.

Train finds out Sven's ability to see a few minutes into the future using the eye he wears a patch over, and Sven realises how fortunate he is to have Train as his sidekick. Train has to go to Sanjula City to find Creed as he is still alive after all this time. There is a celebration ready in the city awaiting all of them, but why?

Sven knows he is just being roused and manipulated, he has to find Train before something bad happens as there are many Taoists who are going rogue using their powers. Train is also still on the run from Chronos, and their associates. At any time he could be captured.

This third volume focuses on Train Heartnett. Sven is convinced Creed is connected to Train's past as an assassin in some way, but he does not know the whole story yet. Now he has disappeared none of them have any clue as to his whereabouts. They realise this could be bad, and plan on finding Train, though Sven will not admit to missing his new partner.

Train and Creed Discans go way back, as him and Achindna Peraz of the Apostles of the Star plan to make a massive impact on the world around them as they sort out their megalomaniac scheme before the very eyes of the unknowing public.

Female viewers will like the new addition of Creeds character as he is tall, dark and bishonen in style. Wearing his black laced up coat and pants with flowing, blond hair he is the perfect adversary for Train.

Sven and Train are still needed to get the spirit water from the Apostles even though this is a huge and dangerous task in itself. Sven has the help of his gun-toting friend Train, but after recent events, he has one person on his mind. Since the death of Saya, Train has been left with only vengeance in his thoughts.

Creed and Achidnia are not the only characters in this volume, Genin Hazard and his two associates of Cerberus who work for Chronos are also after Creed and his henchmen. Viewers will appreciate the effort and skill that has gone into this series as it gets better and better each volume.

EXTRAS:
Text-less opening and closing animations with trailers for other anime greet the viewer in this third volume.

IN SUMMARY:
A headstrong cat pitted against a dangerous assassin and Chronos – this is one fun thriller fans will wish to get their hands on – brilliant!
