Episode was ok but not epic enough. Nice information about Shion being able to do human copies, about Mao being a lover of Madame Oreille when he was human ,July can communicate with those twin dolls and Yin killing contractors. Nice shots of Suou but Shizume was somehow alive even after getting a direct hit to the head...don't understand that. Madame Oreille having some suit with a small version of that weapon that robs contractor powers was a laugh! The Apaches helicopters of the CIA were done good. Some new contractor that could form some light spear and shoot it got Suou's father and because of that he died (a little depressing there with the music). John Smith comes in the picture with CIA. What is Suou going to do after having found Shion...I wonder. Hei at the end might be in big trouble with Hazuki and that is because it looks here that it's about to slash Hei=> Madame Oreille in a weird suit? Lolzwut=>
Shizume supposed to be dead but is not....O_O what?
Nice Apache Ah-64 drawing......

Disappointing episode with not enough action
but
at least it was informative and revealing

So Suou's copy was created when the meteorite crashed huh. Looks like Yin is going to start ripping shit apart real soon. Lolz at Madam Orielle and Mao.

If you had watched the episode with subs instead of assuming things from raws, you'd know that Suou said that he wouldn't die from a shot like that before shooting since his rock armor took the majority of the bullet's impact.

And i cannot believe there's only one episode left.
I really need some dose of good and LONG fighting scenes.
The episode was ok, not that great as the last one. If Madame Orielle was dressed more... normal i would've given this episode 5 stars. She seemed ridiculous in this costume.

I fear this will be in the same direction as the season 1 ending. Way too much plot to be done with in only one episode.

Bah, why does it always have to take an eternity to down this when I really want to watch it? ಠ_ಠ
Taking time ... ... ... ...
It's downed! ⊂( ゚ヮ゚)⊃ Now it's time to watch ( ̄ー ̄)


Oh so Yin was somehow killing contractors by making their own abilities backfire on them? Coooool~ ⊂( ゚ヮ゚)⊃
Bah I do not like Suou blushing when talking to Hei, stay away from him! ٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶
Steamed buns Pelmeni~ ( ̄ー ̄)
........Wait wat? "When it becomes full, Izanami will reach her final month of pregnancy."... Did I miss something? ٩(๏_๏)۶
I'm reaaaaaally curious now as to what happened in between season 1 and 2 (๏.๏)
Anyway, as suspected, the Dr. Pavlichenko that Hei killed was indeed a copy. ◕ ◡ ◕
Also, as suspected, Shion was already a contractor 8 years ago. But a little surprise that Suou wasn't even there apparantly ٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶ But at least Yin was there ( ´・‿-)
Shion.. At an aquarium.. Or could it be the seabottom on the other side of the glass? Just speculating ٩(̾●̮̮̃̾•̃̾)۶
So, July takes orders from Ohreally's dolls to save Suou from.. something ( ¯‿¯)
Hmm I think I've seen a similar ability in the first season as that.. "air-spear"-thingy.. I might just be mixing things up though ( ´・‿-)
Ohreally's clothing baffles me ┐(-。ー')┌
Mahou Shoujo Suou takes out her rifle.. Oh well.. Nice shot Suou ( ̄ー ̄)
Well now at least Dr. Pavlichenko's actually dead.
Very much unlike a certain whatever-his-face guy who's absorbing walls and stuff to amplify his body, yeah the one that Suou shot... Wth? That was quite a clean shot actually ¯\(°_o)/¯
Hei arrives -> Yin's not there ٩(๏_๏)۶ Instead: Hazuki desu! Ambush desu! ⊂( ゚ヮ゚)⊃
Anyways, as I saw francis (who wasn't first to post! : D) write, it looks pretty bad at the end of the episode for Hei ಠ_ಠ My guess though.. Or just one of the theories that I can come up with, is that Yin'll stop Hazuki from succeeding in beheading Hei. ( ¯‿¯)
Otherwise, it could also be that Hei goes: "OH SHI- I'll die like this!" and then dodges, whereafter he starts counterattacking. ◔ ◡ ◔

Preview: The twindolls are starting to be rather creepy, somehow ٩(๏_๏)۶
And somehow.. I'm not surprised at all that Mao and Ohreally had a history.. Actually, I was kinda expecting that. ┐(-。ー')┌
Tl;dr I want Yin, nao! ⊂( ゚ヮ゚)⊃ I don't mind if she looks like anti-spiral Nia ( ¯‿¯)

Maybe she was cosplaying "JUSTICE LEAGUE" as the Americans where coming...:P

So Hei looks hotter in the kitchen , i thought he was making pizza though..

I think Suous dad was a copy because he seemed evil all along with Suou.

Genma is just awesome , the whole hair thing..god serious laughter.

So they show Yin for a spit second , they showed the fight for 2 seconds and the next episode is the finale , it better be like a 2 hour finale or i might just start crying..

Yin is definitely being controlled by someone else because she didnt sound like herself.

First i want someone to answer something i was wondering from the first episode and can't figure out. Is Hazuki a girl or a boy?

Second question that came after this episode: Is Shizume gay? Because he was happy to see Suou's thighs but at the moment he didn't knew she was a girl but he was under the impression she was Shion.

Yin is a real killing machine judging from the scenes at the start. So she changed personality if i understood correct? Like being possessed or something?
And what exactly is the meaning behind the creation of Suou. According to what her father said she's a female clone of Shion. Off course that would still make her Suou since twins are clones of each other by nature anyway.
Suou really loves Hei now.I wonder if it is the change of looks. Since Yin seems to have gone all crazy on us, should we expect them to end up together? Not probable huh?



Suou's father really can't stay alive can't he? He never lasts till the end of an episode.

Oh! yeah. GO GO POWER RANGERS!


Personally i liked the episode. Things seem to come together for an ending.

Answer 1: She's a she, alright : >
Answer 2: ... Well.. He's strange however you put it, but considering how he's treating Kirihara (and other women as well), I suppose he's straight... Might be at least xD

1)So it's a she. Thank God because that would have been one big trap. She looks too good to be a boy.
So she's a lesbian judging from the kisses with the dead girl

2)So Shizume is strait but he makes an exception when it's about little boys? Maybe he should change his profession to a catholic priest.

Oh nice! A lesbian, a pervert and an obsessed late virgin. What a team!

I really hope they'll be able to wrap everything up in the final episode, at least about the gate of hell and the Izanami/Izanagi's meeting, since the gap between s1 and s2 will be filled with the OVA.

I feel like it's one step foward, two steps back. I was disappointed in this episode, but there was more Yin than ever right? Speaking of Yin, was that really her in the beginning because that voice does not belong to Yin's. And why did they have to change her hair and make her ugly? Why not stick with her usual hairstyle? Yin's pregnant???? What is wrong with these people? Let's hope she really is possessed.

Yay, we have some questions answered! Finally! But I have a feeling that there will be a bunch of questions left unanswered as there is only one more episode left. Do you think that there'll be someone who'll post the ovas subbed online? I really don't want to buy the dvds.

So did Shion already meet Yin when the meteorite struck? And it's confirmed that he is Izanagi right?

I have a bad feeling that Hei will kill Yin and (assuming she's possessed) she'll return to her normal self when she's about to die and say some meaningful last words to Hei and BOOM, it ends.

First off some ranting, Madame Orielle's clothing look abso-f*cking-lutely ridiculous, seriously it doesen't fit her character at all.
And what's up with Suou's fathers shooting? That Genma guy was standing like 2 meters away so it would be harder to actually miss him as long as your pointing the pistol in the right direction..
And just how did he survive Suou's headshot? The weapon she carries (PTRD-41) is an anti-tank rifle, and specificity made to penetrate tank armour, so it would have very little trouble with the concrete he was shelled in. Even if he did miraculously survive his brain would more or less be scrambled eggs after the massive bullet impact.

These are a few things that really bugged me -.-'

Other than this episode was quite good and paced forward quite quickly, though I'm really concerned as of how they will be able to make an satisfactory end with just ~20min of screen time left.

Oh Suou looked so cute when she was standing at the kitchen entrance asking Hei what he was cooking =)
So at least Hei got a good looking young girl to turn to if the whole Yin situation fails ;P

Yin or Hei is probably going to die. Maybe even Suou. After all, this is Darker than Black. There was never a happy ending. I hope Hei doesn't die and there is a season 3.

Let's all go back to Hell's gate where anything can happen to unsatisfactorily resolve the plot! Prepare for a pothole ending, kids!

(but don't worry there *might* still be kickass action scenes)

What I don't understand is why tell us what happened afterward first, THEN tell us what happens in between seasons.

Orielle was just on her way to a convention, with a cosplay outfit designed after female Shepard (Mass Effect), but then the plot happened and she didn't have time to change into something less ridiculous.

How are they gonna resolve everything in one final episode? I really don't want the next episode's pacing to be rushed. It's common in short series, thus ending in massive disappointment. Let's just hope Hei kicks Hazuki's ass once and for all and the whole Yin dilemma gets solved. I for one am glad Shizume didn't die, although it would've made a lot more sense if he was left grounded. The guy is about the only comic relief in the series, aside from Mao. This episode had its share of oddities, but Suo is starting to come into her own. It probably won't happen, but I hope there really will be a third season. And for god's sake, they need more lengthier fight scenes that take place outside during nighttime. I really miss that from the first season.

Not the best episode, and probably the least interesting. Kinda feel bad for Suou's father though, but yeah, I'm really wondering how they're gonna resolve all this in just one more episode.

So is Suou's remuneration just Origami in general, and not specifically swans? Because she made stars this time right?

Also, did Suou's father die too easily? Or is a cut in the leg really that deadly?

Wow, only one episode left. Should be at least 3.

There better be a seriously amazing ending, but I'm hesitant. Too much plot left to finish up. And I get a feeling that a non-minor character is going to die.

How did it all come down to this? I mean the plot is so retarded right now that it's pathetic, especially seeing how good DtB1 was and how promising the beginning of the second season was.

And what's with the characters this season? First we get Sailor Suou and then Pink Ranger Oreille? None of them seem to really matter and have any depth and unfortunately we don't get to see the ones from s1 that much. Only Mao is there to save the show sometimes.

Let's not forget who we're dealing with. I'm impressed she didn't shoot her foot by mistake.
