After rewatching DtB and Gaiden the last few days, and being horribly disappointed with how Gaiden ended and the overall terrible plot line it has, I was super excited to find this. I was prepared to be in a semi-depressed slump at how badly the series finishes up, especially as I had no interest in rewatching the mess that is season 2. But after finding this and reading the reviews I decided to give it a shot. So, so glad I did.

Since this manga has only one review I feel like I have to join in!

Basically, if you were kind of weirded out by the second season of Darker than Black, then just come and read this manga, and pretend it is the second season instead. The artist is the character designer from the show's first season, and his style is pretty neat. However, if you really go for the by-the-book standard style of drawing, then it might weird you out a little bit.

Either way, reading it is pretty much the same as watching the show, so I can't help but like it.

That’s another one of my gripes about this series is that the world building was actually pretty decent ...
