------------------------------


darker than black is hard to explain. its a modern day fantasy/crime/gore series. it moves very episodically and most of the time it feels like its just an experimental anime, but with a stroy line that is only really uncovered at episode 5 it still keeps a good pace with interesting characters and eventually revealed plot lines. btw if your squeemish then DO NOT WATCH THIS.
the main character is chinese student Lee Shenshung. he seems shy and bland but when it calls he pulls out his alter ego Hei the black contractor or as the police call him the BK-201. he is what they call a contractor. a contractor is a person who is given a power in exchange for something like self harming. in the first episode a contractor is seen snapping his fingers in contract. Hei i don't know what he does but he still is a contractor. the modern day idea of tokyo in the anime is hiddwn by a fake sky line and a huge building called hells gate which circles off the city perimiter. the people occupying it are from a company named pandora and they experiment with contractors. i don't knwo what spectres are but i'm guessing they're the stars. oh and another thing: a star falls when a contractor dies. darker than black is an enthraling series that captures the imagination with good characters, a strange back story, lavish drawings and even a great sound track. oh and above all: its made by aniplex and bones. keep a look out for references to either companies in the anime itself. be prepared. this is gruesome stuff.

I made it to episode 13, then I had to stop watching it because my dad broke my laptop, and I didn't feel comforble watching it with everybody in the room on the family computer. Plus summer was almost three days away to being over.

But, great Anime! I loved it! (Thus far)

Finished the first series not long ago. It was pretty good fun over all but it got a cluttered at times.
Still, November 11 alone makes it a good watch (his dub voice is great) and the main group is pretty awesome.


A new season started not long ago so you may want to check it out. Seems kind of pointless to me though, the 1st series seemed to wrap up pretty well (or at least kill off almost all the good characters.)

Probably not that much but it turns up all over the place (outside of referring to his code number.)
Best example is on his papers when he's entering the Gate.

I loved Darker Than Black. I finished the anime completely, seasons one and two. The ending made me cry.
