One night, as meteors streak across the star-studded sky, Shion Pavlichenko becomes a Contractor. Despite her brother's transformation, Shion's twin sister Suou continues to live a fairly ordinary life, attending middle school with her friends and getting caught up in the awkwardness of growing up. However, everything changes when her home is invaded by a masked man cloaked in black, destroying any sense of normality she once had. Revealed to possess latent Contractor abilities of her own, Suou is caught between family, friends, and her own sense of purpose as she ventures into the ruthless world of cutthroats and espionage that Contractors call home.

Meanwhile in Tokyo, investigation surrounding Hell's Gate's sudden collapse is underway, and prophetic signs of doom point in the direction of a silver-haired doll.

Firstly I would like to say that please watch the specials before starting s2 because that’s how u can basically enjoy the anime without too many wtf moments like why tf is this so different from s1.

Overall at the start of s2 I didn’t like it very much bcz of Hei being very different and the idea of a loli as the mc instead of hei but hei is still very much the protagonist trust me it gets better as u watch more.

There is some mad story pacing like perfect the more I watched the more sense it made and the better it got ...

Mixed Feelings
I wasn't so much in love with the first season of this anime until I watched the second season. The second season just made the whole first season look like a golden masterpiece. Hei in season two, acts like some mental patient who broke out of asylum. It's not that he wasn't an abusive individual in first season but atleast he was bearable.
The ending was ambiguous but it was so rushed and poorly excuted.
And some things that don't make sense such as why the writers thought Hei and Misaki will fight against each other in season two. They both coincide by the ...

Review on rewatch. S02 of Darker than Black exists only to show us to be careful what we wish for when we ask for another season of something good. The world would be better off without this. It takes the most interesting and cool character of the first season (Hei), neuters him, gives him alcoholism as a cheap has-been trope, then focuses on a new character nobody cares about. Everything that was interesting about the first season, from the noir vibe, to scifi intrigue, to funny or gripping side characters -- all this goes out the window with terrible writing.

This stands right up there ...
