DtB: Ryuusei no Gemini 07

Darker than Black

Looking rather UNCLE there, Hei.

Pretty much bridge-filler episode focusing on Suou and July’s unspoken, developing bond… much akin to Hei’s first season bonding with Yin. I kinda LOL’ed at hearing Nabatame Hitomi as the treacherous ‘transporter’ Hei hires to get them out from Hokkaido to Tokyo. Too bad she’s just a one-shot character killed terribly by the end of this episode. Speaking of which…. Suou was pretty nifty at throwing those glass shards.

Major revelation this week is that Suou’s father is still pretty much alive, under Shion’s thumb and probably had a cloned body prepared to masquerade as his corpse for the Russian authorities, prompting Tanya’s return to fray… not that it’s unwelcome since she looks hawt as hell in those uniforms.

I’m just glad the show’s getting back on the serious track for now. Hopefully that’ll be the last we see of dreadlocks boy.

    I’m not sure I like this long running theme in DTB of introducing a contractor and making him out to be all that and then killing him soon after. Maybe its just Hei thats overpowered!

    Do take note that, as of this point, Hei STILL has no powers. I wonder where the subplot between Suou and Tanya is heading though?

    Knowing this franchise, likely in tears.

    @ Myssa Rei

    It’s alright. I mean, Hei still owns many contractors even before he had his powers. He wasn’t called a Grim Reaper for now reason. If I remember correctly, didn’t the syndicate hired him just because of that as well even when he was not a contractor?
