The soundtrack to the 2nd season is going to be great, I hope it'll be out soon. And the OVAs of course, can't wait for that :3

That whole scene at the airport was just A-mazing and the music made it even more so.
Why is it that this show has so many awesome characters yet only lets them shine occasioanally and wastes time on boring ones? With 12 episodes only to boot!

All right, it starts to get really-really serious from there.

First, I was able to hear Ambers voice. That was so unpredictable, I nearly cried from happiness. Seriously, this is no joke. Just after that Hei changed back to his old style from the hobo. With that jerky detective and the pink haired otaku, Kiome, maybe, an outsider would think Bones could only make a filler episode, still for me that was one of this season's best. I can't wait to see the rest.

Again, Bones made an unpredictable plottwist there.

Oh wow, same here, I was really expecting a filler episode, but my god..!! Pretty much everything about this episode rocked. I giggled like crazy in the scene where Kiko and her friend were complaining about gag characters being introduced just when the plot got serious!

I actually squealed in that scene where Hei was shaving. About bloody time, if you ask me!

Aaaaah, can't believe it's another week till the next episode! Damn you Bones, and your awesome cliffhangers!

Best episode yet on my side.

But hey, I think I'm gonna go back to watching season one cuz I don't have a clue of what just happened. Actually, I didn't have any goddamn idea of what was happening from episode 1. And seeing you all remembering what's happening and getting excited at seeing characters or getting mad at plot twists and so on and I'm in my corner like "wtf..." hell that depresses me. I think I've got fish's memory. I don't remember A THING from season 1. Lol, i better go back to watching carefully c:

Shit, this episode was brilliant. Good to see the old Hei again. The only thing that is missing atm is his powers. He still own without them.

And the end was, FAIL!

An action scene that remembered me quite of James Bond, Casino Royale, somehow. In the airport, with the bus and blah.
And OMG fsklkuzhj... Hei shaved and he is pure sex again. Damn yes. This so made my day.
I kinda laughed when Suou's mum mixed her and Shion up, at first. And then I was like: 'WTF.' Looks like this season is going to be far better than I expected at first. Awesome!
Tell me how it feels, breaking down the old walls.

hell, yeah, that is my no.1 complaint! I know this is all gonna be in the OVAs but I really think it ought to have been part of the series. Not knowing just plain pissed me off and now it continues to piss me off because I suspect they're gonna do some open-ended trademark-japanese resolution and it's gonna be "whaaaaa...?"
And what are they doing with Mao? Nothing but comic relief. At least July doesn't waste his screentime...
ok, rant over :p

AHHHH YES HEI SHAVED xD He's still awesome as always, even without his contractor ability. :) But I don't really care about Amber though... The ending shocked me - I thought her mom just mixed them up... o_o

Overall, good ep - I thought it was gonna be filler, but I was mistaken :)

I would probably jump around and stuff for hours, than start watching Amber related episodes from the first season. Actually, in SE1 I didn't like her that much, but this episode, the bare 1 minute we got of her just made my whole day.

Probably my favorite episode this season. Now I really can't wait for there to be an OST.

Was so happy for Suou's reunion with her mom until she said Shion. Then all those damn theories I've been reading on /a/ kicked in and I almost jumped out of my chair and shook my monitor.

I'm so happy old Hei's back he still looks hot! I actually think July showed some emotion when Suou fainted. That was interesting to see. The Izanagi/Izanami theory I think is Izanami is obviously Yin and Izanagi is Shion or Suou but maybe more Shion than Suou. The end was nice when Suou isn't really Suou? What, uh...? ( Majorly freaking out here! )Can wait for next ep.! I really love DTB Season 2 with Suou better than DTB Season 1. I really hope there is a Season 3 b/c I doubt it can possibly be wrapped up in 3 more eps.

OK so I've got a theory for you:

What if Amber is alive. We assumed at Amber used the last of her power to give Hei more time at the end of the first season. However, once you take into account the fact that Amber can move through time. Is it not possible that it was not the toddler Amber at the end, but a earlier, older Amber who had come forward in time to do the task? There for saving the toddler Amber from using her powers. I mean Amber did kind of have everything figured out from the beginning.

The old Hei is almost back, all he needs is the contractor ability. ^^

Aww...man, no more Hobo Hei? Am I the only one who liked his hobo look?

Well, that twist in the end was unexpected. I hope the next episode fills in more of the details on Suou's past. The fact that she has a twin makes things even more confusing even though Shion isn't with her.

You (along with many others) should really take a look at previous comments before saying things like "Am I the only one .." etc, not just in this thread, but there are quite alot of people who go about with this question, although 'Hobo Hei' is exchanged for something random from <insert random anime here>.
I mean just 2 posts ago, #113 by KingDeadKira, he mentioned that he like the 'Heibo' more. Although I can understand that you might think you're the only one, because in case you only read the first page, there doesn't seem to be any Heibo supporters there : p

Personally, I don't mind whether he's Hei or Heibo : > As long as he gets some Yin later!: D

Same, I don't think the OST's are out yet though, which sucks. As soon as they're released I'm downloading that track for sure.

I'm new here by the way, if anyone would like to talk to me or whatever feel free to PM me.

The logical assumption would be that Shion can create clones and his father puts memories into them.

No it wouldn't.
Compare the dates:
Supposed Suou's death - 8 years ago.
Meteor incident and Shion becoming a contractor - 2 years ago.
The only way it makes sense to me is if Dr. Pavlichenko is the one who's secretly a contractor, and he is the one who can create people's clones. And Shion's ability must be something that allowed him to communicate with Suou in the first episode.
Though it's hard to make a theories with this little information given.


I'm sorry, I didn't take time into consideration ( maybe I shouldve, seeing as how time is so important in DtB S1 and S2; yay Amber! ). Anyways, since Bones has thrown us a twist, I think all our theories will be wrong.

After reading some posts, and rewatching the ep =D, yah, I was also surprised why Sawasaki, who shouldve been VERY familiar with Hei's face, didn't recognize him in the lighted hallway. Jeez; i hope the last 3 eps will be packed, the story's picked up fast.
