Synopsis

In the sequel, Hei and Yin are now on the run after betraying the Syndicate in the previous season. After leaving Japan, Hei encounters Suou Pavlichenko, a 13-year-old Eurasian girl who becomes embroiled in the war and politics of the various factions and Contractors vying for power. Meanwhile, Hell's Gate remains standing in Tokyo, after Hei's efforts to stop the Saturn Ring anti-Gate particle weapon from activating. Although Contractors are safe from the danger of having their existences erased, this does not prevent new and old Contractors from abusing their powers. As Misaki Kirihara and her team in the Public Security Bureau deal with the increasing Contractor cases, she also has to keep the Syndicate at bay, who has major positions in the Japanese police and intelligence bureaus around the world. The storyline setting primarily takes place in both Japan and Russia.

Somehow the high expectations I had awaiting the sequel to a fantastic series were not fulfilled. Ryuusei No Gemini isn’t exactly a sequel to Kuro no Keiyakusha, but more like a separate arc in itself. It would be unfair to compare both of them as they vary in their style and storyline. For starters, the series are not bi-episodic; instead revolve around a single storyline involving a Eurasian female protagonist. Hei’s involvement through the series although significant, has not really been up to what it ought to be.

--- NO SPOILERS --

Many people do the mistake watching this season, wishing it'd be a simple rehash of or the final closure to season 1. Here I try my best I can to review this series as its own. Besides that, I genuinely enjoyed DTB s2 just like I appreciated the first season.

Characters/Story

Our main protagonist Suou, the red-hair pigtail girl on the cover, is a kind and vulnerable girl who cares a lot for her family. In the first few minutes we get to know her everyday school-life, which drastically changes after an encounter with Contractors /people with special abilities.
From here on everything changes read more

Before you read this one, I would let you know that I am just a newbie when it comes to anime and I am not totally good when it comes to anime terms and words. Also I am not a good reviewer like the others in here. But, still I like to write a review for this and I will deliver it in a simple way based on my own opinions.

Whats new in this series? A lot of changes. Yes a lot of changes, that would includes the characters, appearances, mood, settings and the story itself.

I'm not really one for writing long reviews of anime I've watched, but I felt that I had to say something about this one.

Darker than BLACK - Kuro no Keiyakusha had a dark storyline and characters with very distinct traits, especially Hei. Darker than BLACK - Ryuusei no Gemini, the sequel seemed to forget these.

*Mild Spoilers Ahead*

This anime would have been great if it was a stand-alone, but it was unlucky enough to have expectations to live up to its predecessor. The main character, Hei - once a calm, collected, cold-blooded killer now stars as an umkempt drunk who abducts small children and beats them. read more

Recommendations

Anime: Speed Grapher
Both series are about humans who have supernatural powers. In Darker than Black there are Contractors who have these powers and in Speed Grapher there are Euphorias who have these superhuman powers. The stories of these anime are good and related to the modern world. There are also girls who the main guy wants to help and protect.

Both mains are assassins from an organization and end up being betrayed and whatsover.

Anime: Shoujo Kakumei Utena
They have weapons/firearms coming out of character's TITS that represent some sort of phallic imagery. The only difference is while both of them have under-aged heroines who are still supposed to be in middle school one looks like a loli and the other looks like a young woman in their highschool/college years for some inexplicable reason.

Anime: Wolf's Rain
Very similiar depressing/dark atmosphere in both of the series. In DTB there are contractors who are the outcasts, while in Wolf's Rain it's wolves.

And they share a common studio, Bones, so the art is very similiar.

Anime: Monster
Both anime consists of a sister with an evil brother. The sister regains her memories gradually, while the brother waits for her in the end. It consists of gun play action, and the sister tries to defeat her brother.

Anime: Darker than Black: Kuro no Keiyakusha
Anime incontournable d'une qualité hautement supérieur a la moyenne au niveau scénario et psychologique. L'intrigue et le regard profond sur l'âme humaine ma captivé. A écouter avec grande attention. Un anime qui sort du cliché que ça prend des gros seins et du ecchi pour avoir un anime valable.On ne reste pas agacé par des personnages idiots et pleurnichards.Un anime qui s'apprécie par son intelligence et des personnages un peu particulier mais intrigants.J'aurai bien voulu qu'il y es une suite.
