This is the bridge between Kuro no Keiyakusha (Season 1) and Ryuusei no Gemini (Season 2). For those who watched both seasons THIS IS A MUST! In these 4 episodes they will explain the holes in Ryuusei no Gemini.

(Will update as season ends)

Story: 9/10

These 4 episodes explains about the gap in the 2 years between season 1 and season 2. Like before of DtB, the story is well executed and polished. It is based on the character development between Hei and Yin. Also answers many of the questions that were brought in season 2.

Art: 9/10

Amazing, I would say it is better read more

With just one episode aired I believe we all more or less know what it's going to be about. So let me explain this a bit to those who haven't got their hands on the first episode yet.

Story : The story clearly takes place between 1st and 2nd season. As written above, it's main purpose is to shorten the gap between 1st and 2nd season.
If you've finished just 1st season, this is just like watching another episode of it. If you've seen 2nd season too, it's pretty much a flashback, but a very critically needed one. I myself was pulled in the story read more

**SPOILER FREE REVIEW OF THE OVA ONLY**

I'll keep this short: Anyone who is a fan of Darker than Black NEEDS to find a way to watch these 4 episodes; they are crucial to understanding so many things about the series, including several things that didn't make sense in season 2, the relationship between Hei and Yin, and Hei's character development.

The OVA bridges the gap between seasons 1 and 2, explaining what happened to Hei and Yin during that time, and not only is this information vital to the plot, it is incredibly entertaining. This OVA is 4 episodes of pure awesome, as we finally read more

This is a nice follow up from the first season but obviously if you watch this first before Ryuusei no Gemini because this was aired one year after the 2nd season and for some reason i think the 2nd season will be different than i thought because of the cover with that girl with the sniper.

The story follows Hei and Yin in their attempt to run from the Syndicate, they now have a more deep relation of caring and even in love and in which they will have their own problems between them as now Yin has ''another'' personality that wants to take read more
