Two people who should never have met – ever get a chance to do just that when they are both on the same mission to take out the new Governor Liv Tyrant, a former gangster, dealer and no good trash. Sven Volified sees Liv shot using his special 'vision eye,' a five minute episode where he can see into the future and the man he sees do the deed is Train Heartnet. Horrified that he couldn't prevent him being killed, he has to move on and find another target after getting warned off by Train outside the mansion before.

Sven is a 'sweeper' who collects his bounty and brings him back alive for cash, not that it's that much while Train Heartnet is an 'eraser'  and member of the Chronos Organization named Kuri Neko or Black Cat whose number is Thirteen and is tattooed on him and etched into his gun. He is sent out on a mission to track and erase his targets for food as he has been trained, his fast reaction, timing, and speed is amazing and some would say inhuman, but he is feared by everyone who hears his name mentioned.

Sven's next target is a young woman who wants him to get a girl who just happens to be her sister, the bio weapon Eve a dangerous and destructive menace who looks in reality like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. The only problem is Eve is also Train's next target for erasing. When Train sees her he spares her life but no one knows why. Sven plans to see Eve again and he knows Train will be there too, but will he carry out his plan to actually kill her?

It is an interesting anime to watch as two characters that shouldn't be together end up friends after the first few episodes when Train starts to question his moral standing in Chronos and goes his own way in life. Train's seriousness and Sven's comedy and laid-back manner make for the perfect double-act all the way through. It has action, romance, fun and serious parts that make the viewer think about the next episode in the series more than they would normally.

EXTRAS:
Text less Opening and Closing animations make this a great box set for everyone who likes action in their anime.

IN SUMMARY:
Two mercenaries, a girl and not enough time on their hands – this anime is a recipe for disaster but in the greatest possible way! It's a five-star ticket to mayhem and brilliant doesn't even cut it.
